Description

Will be using this to play some games and just general computer stuff. The Asus software "Probe II" that comes with the mobo was reading the voltages incorrectly had to use HWmonitor pro. For the cpu temps im using the core temps, will run prime95 to see what the temps are under load.

Update 9/22/2012: Running prime95 for about 2hrs it seems that my temps wont go any higher than 36c. Also with hwmonitor which one should i be using for cpu temp. Google is giving different results, dunno if i should use core temps or go by cpu. Also uploaded new pic.

I... dont see anything wrong here.... Maybe get a small SSD if you want to? Other than that this is pretty good

Its fine

I hate SSDs personally because i dont see the point. I dont NEED my computer to boot fast or start apps fast. I go get some snacks while i wait for those things. Haha

Looking to build something similar also on a budget. How does an fx 8120 at stock settings compare to an overclocked Phenom ii x6 1045T?

I read online that you would have to overclock the fx 8120 to get comparable performance to the phenom II's. Thats why i went the a phenom.

Looks nice. I probably would have gone with a 6850 but 7770 is still pretty good.

The reason i got the 7770 was cause it was on sale. Its the ghz edition so i can overclock it a bit if i want. Got it for $119 during labor day sale.

and 7770 supports GPGPU thru OpenCL and OpenGL

Well that i didn't know but another reason i got it is because of its low power consumption.

How does your PSU hold up? Easy to work with? Quiet? I thinking about going with the same series.

Its pretty good also that fact that it is modular helps a lot. The problem i had was that you need to turn the sata cables to connect to anything. I just turn my hd upside down to fix this.

Seems good although you could have managed cables better.
