Description

Used the PC for gaming. Bioshock Infinite, LOL, LA Noire, BF3, Crysis, etc. The build works great, can run anything on max settings. If I were to change anything, i'd change the video card to the 7950 because the 7870 has some over clocking issues. My GPU will blue screen if i overclock it, so I would go ahead and his out the extra 30-40 on some sort of 7950. The case is discontinued, probably for the better as it wasnt USB 3.0. Great looking case, though.

Very well balanced mid-ranged PC! I love seeing people on here who actually know what they're doing. That case is a new one to me. Looks awesome :D

Finally a smart build. This will do you really good and it's actually really nice for a mid-range gaming PC. How's it running for ya so far?

I run everything with no troubles so far. Might upgrade my GPU or just crossfire it when I get the chance, whatever is more recommended. Other than the GPU overclocking issues, this build works great and it's affordable. Thanks for the feedback!

I would recommend just getting one fast single card. Although crossfire can give you better performance, getting one single fast card will give you better temps and you wont have Crossfire issues (drivers wise). That's great to hear that the build is running fine so far!

I don't think that Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 is based on the Radeon HD 79xx series Tahiti LE GPU core like the Radeon HD 7870 XT/LE editions. The XT/LE editions are suppose to have great overclocking potential. Those editions are just around $235 and are just a bit of a step down from a Radeon HD 7950.

Nice build, funky looking case but hey whatever floats your boat I guess!

Yeah the case was a spur of the moment thing. It has huge fans and a built in thermometer so I have no over heating issues, and I can check my temperature at the front (where the circle at the bottom is. Doesn't have USB 3.0 in the front, but that doesn't bother me too much. Thanks for the feedback!

Don't get me wrong I'm not ripping on the case at all. I love the features that Apevia cases have. I owned an Apevia case way back and I loved the thermometer that was built in and all of the cool features and looks their cases have. A lot of people will rip on stuff like you said like no front usb 3 but they obviously haven't used one of their cases before because they are actually really well built and have a lot of cool features that other manufacturers ignore.
