So as you can see from the name, I built this PC for Joe (he still paid), a little league streamer and a friend of mine. This was my second time selecting parts for a PC, and 6th PC I built/helped build.

Each part explained:

AMD FX-8320 (CPU): As Joe wanted to video edit so I selected an 8 core CPU, (or 4 core because AMD? IDK its hard to tell -.-)

Zalman CNPS9900ALED (CPU Cooler): So we only bought the CPU Cooler about 4 days ago (2/4/2015) from a local used electric store, it was posted as $30, but Joe only had $21 and the guy was like -.- take it.

Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P (MoBo): this is sketch, but it works

2x Team Elite 4GB (RAM): Great deal, and RAM is RAM

Seagate 1TB 7200RPM Hybrid (Storage): Seagate is reliable enough, and this drive is fast enough -we really got the 2.5, but it cost $5 more and the other was out of stock

Asus GeForce GTX 660 (GPU): Fast enough although a GTX 960 would have been better

NZXT H230 (Case): I love NZXT, and this case was perfect for Joe's PC

Corsair 450W ATX12V (PSU): Great PSU, Joe's only using about 80% off it meaning its at about 88% efficiency (90% is best for a gold PSU)

Acer S241HL bmid 24.0 (Monitor): Do I really need to explain a monitor?

I feel as though you're pushing it with the 450w. I understand you guys were probably on a strict budget but it's really going to hold Joe back from future upgrades.
