Description

Originally I intended to use this for school work. After a couple days of causally playing some steam games I found out it is actually a decent gaming computer. I didn't include any peripherals in the build because I'm not going to try to tell anyone the best mouse/ keyboard, or monitor so you guys can pick those. For the operating system I went with Windows 10 Pro. It is amazing. For monitors I am currently using an extra 32" flat screen I had laying around and an old 17" Acer as a secondary monitor. As for mouse and keyboard I picked up a Windows 200 series keyboard for $5 at Microcenter and a nice Adesso mouse that has three different color options for $15. Now for the problems I have ran into thus far. The Corsair 200r case is a decent budget case, 2 USB 3.0 in front along side a microphone and headphone jack. This case can house up to 7 fans which is a problem due to the fact that the motherboard will only support 3 fans. To counter this problem I picked up two fan splitter cables for only a couple bucks each. I have the two stock case fans, the intake in the front of the case and the exhaust in the rear, I also mounted two 120mm fans on the side to help cool the CPU and GPU and it stays cool even in my living room which is usually around 70 degrees f. Now for the gaming specs. I haven't played many games but the games I have played have amazed me. COD Advanced Warfare on High Settings: constant 30 FPS Dirt Rally on high settings: 45-50 FPS Counter Strike GO on high settings: 60 FPS Left for Dead 2 on high: 45-50 FPS. If you have any questions feel free to comment! Here within the next couple weeks I plan to upgrade my GPU so any suggestions would be appreciated!

I would highly suggest changing the PSU as corsair CX PSUs are really not the best for your PC and they won't last as long.

Okay, I didn't know that. What is a good brand that you would suggest ?

Corsair (Non CX Series)

The RM is way overpriced for what you get.

Only look at RMi/RMx, AXi/AX, and HXi.

The Corsair RM series power supply. Not to be confused with the RMi and RMx. The RMi and RMx are fantastic power supplies.

This is true. In my opinion I think the majority of Corsairs products are extremely over priced. The RM is still much much better than the CX series.

True, but at the price point there are no reasons to buy it.

i would recommend the R9 380,out performs the 960 in every game,even Nividia optimized one.

I would recommend going with the R9 380 because it is a much more powerful card which in turn gives you higher FPS.

But it is cheaper and it is more powerful.

I wouldn't recommend a GTX 960.

Why not? The 4gb MSI 960 performs over my friend's 380x at the same price point, so in this case AMD is not the way to go. As far as price per performance goes, I think the 960 is a great card.
