Hello I found this excellent website is like facebook for PCs but much better ;) , well I tell them.

This is my first build systems for software development with Virtual Machines (Android, BB 10, and SAP Mobile Apps), I try to have a high performance system on a budget with deals, I initially thought I'd go with intel i7, but with what it cost me only i7 processor, I bought the Motherboard with AMD FX CPU, therefore I decided to go with AMD for price / value with FX 8320 and ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R 2.0, very nice for OC = P, although I am aware that an i7 will always have better performance, but AMD offers me many benefits at a lower cost.

Now with respect to the graphics card, I needed something sturdy but simple, when I buy the graphics card (October 2013) for that date AMD had not released the AMD Radeon R9 version :(, so I bought the MSI Twin Froser OC 7850 by as 149.99 only + USD 10 rebate card. for my daily use, I found it excellent for any use even watch HD movies in 1080P.

For the PSU CORSAIR CX 600 has enough capacity to power all components, and CASE NZXT Phantom 410 seems comfortable and spacious enough to insert new components and can be inserted up to 8 fans and most importantly comes with 4 external ports USB (3.0 and 2.0 respectively) with three-speed controller for fans.

For now I just bought a 1TB Seagate HDD, and according to my testing has been pretty good read speeds of 182 MB / s and writing 170 MB / s with CristalDiskmark and Windows 8.1 Pro.

With the memory by the time I only have one 8GB G.Skill Ripjaws Sticker 1866 MHz, which have led up to 2133 MHz with no problems, excellent memory for my motherboard.

Now, To reduce the temperature of the CPU I have a Corsair Hydro H80i, but it has given me some concerns, first because the thermal paste that came on the pump to get corrupted: '( and I did not have a good thermal paste on hand, therefore I buy a generic (CHINA) here in Venezuela and is giving me a very high temperature of just 4.4 GHZ OC, all settings that are recommended, at Full load with prime95 can reach 68C in CPU CORE with full performance H80i ...., so I send to buy a better thermal paste (GELID GC Extreme) to see if changing it, I improved the temperature a bit.

Some improvements coming soon, are:

1) A new memory sticker G.Skill Ripjaws 8GB 1866 MHz, for a total of 16GB.

2) Samsung SSD 840 Series 250 GB EVO

Any Comments or suggestions are welcome =).

Hello Hippo I've my GPU overcloked to 1450GhZ, and my CPU to 4,5GHZ, both work perfect, and GPU Don't not affects CPU overall. My recommendation for this kind of system 16 RAM of memory at least, 8GB for my daily use ( VMWare ), development tools + games is not enough.
