Description

This pc was built mainly for playing games such as League of Legends and programming. I have since then started playing Planet Side 2 and H1Z1 with good results.

Processor - I chose this as its a great processor for the price. Due to my budget I did could not get the 4690k, which I originally planned to get. It stays pretty cool with the cooler master 212 at roughly low 30s. low 40s gaming.

Hard Drive - Was given to me from my uncle so I did not pay for this\

Memory - Could not find in parts but I am using Hyper Fury x 8 gb 1600mhz ddr3. More than enough for what I use this pc for.

Graphics Card - As I could not find the 760, this card does more than enough for what I need it to. Running league at over 200fps on max settings. Planet Side at 90+ while nothing is going on and 52-76 in full combat

Everything else was bought due to my budget. I will be upgrading the power supply asap Any feedback would be awesome :D

I'm getting almost the same build, I already have a PSU and storage so mine budget is around 500$ instead of 600$ and im adding a extra fan to the case. I may change to a R9 290 if my budget accounts for it

im coming up from a Athlon X2 II 245 and a radeon 5450 1gb

i run at 25-30 fps in league on max thats just a basis of what im running at +1

I paid about 650 after all promo codes and shipping. I couldn't figure out how to do custom parts. Always help when your uncle has a master key for windows for his job and left over hard drives xD I was going to get the 290, but I went with Nvidia due to power saving issues as I couldn't get a beefy power supply. Yet ;)

what are the temperatures you usually get, that's what i'm really worried about

It really depends on what im doing. Regular browsing low 30s. Playing league my gpu gets up to 52c, cpu high 30s low 40s. Planetside 2 stresses it the most with the cpu at high 40s (never exceeded 48c) and the gpu at low 60s which is when the fans kick on. Ive been using this set up for 3 weeks now and the highest points ive mentioned is also with the pc being on for 4 or more days at a time. As long as you have proper airflow inside the case and a decent after marker cooler you should be fine. Also having to take into account ambient temperatures. That said i live in the desert in Arizona where its already 99 F outside

No problem. Im eventually going to get a nzxt phantom. One of my favorite cases. Just didnt have enough to fit it into the budget. Ill get it eventually

This is an excellent build for the price, though, since you didn't input the prices you actually paid within your price list, I suspect it was even lower than this given that your HDD was free. Very nice, overall.

I couldn't figure out how to add custom parts haha. But thank you none the less. I paid roughly 630 for everything 650 after promo codes and 3 day shipping from newegg. Which surprisingly came a day early!

WOW. More than 100 dollars under what PCPP auto listed. Great job.

What are your temps like? I used to have a Rosewill challenger case that did way better with airflow then my current Sentey case.

Nevermind, just remembered you had them in your description

Haha its all good. I posted a comment above with full details on my temps which I monitor anytime I game or do anything intensive as I dont want it to get too hot and heat up my room when its already so hot outside xD

This case..could have been better. If it werent for the side panels bulging out a bit the cable management would have been so much worse as I could barely get the back side panel back on with out a little bit of force. But it does its job.

Im going to replace the fans as I had to go into the bios and turn all the fans to their lowest settings because they are just too loud. With that said the temps I get with them running just over 600rpm isnt that bad

Thank you! I'm really happy with the performance im able to get out of it with out over clocking yet. I will eventually be moving to water cooling. Gotta do a few other upgrades first.

I'm getting the same build next month, and I really like your build. +1 for this. But the case I will be getting is fractal r4 with window. I'm kinda inloved with the air filters and the design of the case. :) hihi. Might as well invest in aesthetics.

Can you run a browser while playing league? with no lag on highest settings?

Sorry for the late reply. I can do alot of stuff with league open. Only thing that holds that back is my crappy internet. But to answer your question, yes. With plenty of room to spare. And i will be replacing the case very soon. Thinking about getting a nzxt phantom.

This processor is completely ok for the most of the job. i play Battlefield 4 in ULTRA settings with a Radeon R9 270x 4Gb. Good machine you have!

Thanks! :D I havent played much of battle field. On planetside however, I get up to 70 fps stable. Although with tanks and a bunch of explosives it drops down to 50s on maxed out settings.
