This is my first build in 9 years. Built for moderate gaming, but mostly multimedia.
Why the 8150?
Whats the primary use of this build?
I just updated the build with a short description.
If you wanted to, you can get 8GB of ram instead, and use that money to upgrade the graphics card.
omg nevermind my last reply, i forgot this was a completed build.... I thought this was the partlist you were planning on purchasing.. Sorry bout that, but I like the overall build. Good balanced choices.
KCCO from NC!
Plus one for KCCO in the build name alone. Chive on!
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.
Wait wits an nic?
Network interface Controller
Yea they all say that.. I run my ftp server on a 8 years old laptop no problem with the onboard... you just lost 30$ ahahaha (anyways intel is not that good.. I have a high end motherboard from them retarded bios overclock like crap and the vrm is dead
Their nics are good not their boards.
Since there's no description/said use for this build, these are the things I would have did different:
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)
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.
