If you wanted to, you can get 8GB of ram instead, and use that money to upgrade the graphics card.

Balanced build but what's up with the network adapter? Your onboard one is perfectly fine.

Intel NICs are much better than any realtek or broadcom NIC you get onboard.

Asus is pretty good though....

What? He is using an Asrock board that has a broadcom NIC, which is the worst type of onboard NIC. An Intel NIC will perform a lot better.

Since there's no description/said use for this build, these are the things I would have did different:

  1. Gotten a WD Blue HDD, no need for black if you got an SSD, it's just noiser and uses more power
  2. Gotten 8GB of RAM, idk what this build is used for, but most people don't need 16GB
  3. Gotten an Asus or Lite-On ODD, could've saved 10 bucks.

I don't have any experience with AMD CPUs/mobos, so can't say anything on them. I think you could've saved a good amount of money on a few things including what I said above though.

I don't think this was a very effectively planned build for a few reasons.

  • Why a Bulldozer CPU when the upgraded Piledriver version is only $20 more (on sale for the same price quite often)

  • Why 16 GB of RAM?

  • Why a GTX 660 when there are less expensive models of the HD 7870 XT (which rivals a 660 Ti)

-Why the Full Tower HAF when you aren't using the extra space for anything (such as custom watercooling, lots of drives, etc)

  • 78 months ago

HAF cases aren't actually that great for watercooling. They are very air optimized cases.

I got the full tower because I will probably get a water cooling system in the future. I don't really need one right now.

1) He might just overclock it. We don't know, but that is a valid point.

2) There's no description. For all we know, he's not gaming.

3) See 2.

1) I don't need to overclock it right now. I will probably do that in a year or 2.

2) Just updated with a description. Sorry for the delay.
