Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

Average in terms of performance, it is a cheap cooler after all. Pretty loud idle - even louder under load. Keeps temps usually under 62 during heavy load.


Runs out of space fairly quickly but fairly fast. R/W speed slows down when transferring big files.


Excellent, not too little space compared to 500 GB but now with Nvme drives the price tag is hard to swallow.

Video Card

Holds up pretty well. Gets decent performance on most games.

The 3GB VRAM is its downfall.

looks like all of your budget went to your GPU, could have balanced things better

This is similar to a build im doing (cpu, mobo, gpu) Can we get some benchmarks?

Bioshock Infinite Benchmark Software: 98.92 (This was a bit unfair since I tested this on start-up) Bioshock Infinite In-game: 110-120 Min: ~90 NovaBench: 1552 (Again some programs were unable to be closed during testing)

do you think that graphics card could handle 4 Asus PB238Q (link: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asus-monitor-pb238q)) they are 1080p, I'm planning on making a pc with that graphics card
