Description

This is my first build. I emulated a friend and used most of what he was doing and it turned out great. My only reservations are with windows 8.1 as it is way different than what I am used to.

One concern I have is that I totally missed that my EVGA GTX 660 OC asks for a 450W power supply and I have a 430W...... I am going to go ahead and run with it and keep an eye on the PS to make sure its not too overworked. Eventually I will upgrade when the right deal comes along.

As long as it runs, I don't seen any problem with the PSU... obviously your first upgrade of choice will be the PSU lol, but still, great build!

I would've looked for a 760 or a 7870 at 20$-50$ more and like you mentioned a bigger PSU would be a lot safer. Otherwise, good build.

Yea, I considered the 760 but even the $50 more was pushing it. Hell I had to go out and get a $11 keyboard/mouse setup just to save on costs. My original plan was to spend $650.... ha yea right! Otherwise I am super happy with the build.... plays Rust on highest settings at like 150-180 FPS which is incredible coming from the laptop I was using that got like 20-25 FPS on the lowest settings possible.
