Description

Mainly for gaming. Just a casual gamer but wanted to play some ACU and Far Cry 4 which were too heavy in requirements.

Pretty new at this, so if you have any suggestions for improvement, i'm very open.

Parts were mainly picked as they went on sale. Didnt have this combination in mind when i started.

If it's the weight of the GPU sagging it I don't know what you could do. A lot of people have gpu sag in their photos on this website for some reason. It's seated properly yeah?

I would recommend putting the RAM in memory slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4. You will benefit more from dual channel that way.

Motherboards these days are smart enough that it doesn't really matter anymore... Never seen a difference when I went from 2x2GB sticks to a single 4GB stick in my old computer. (A55 board ... even back then it wasn't making a difference)

I have heard that before but couldnt find any such instruction on the MOBO manual. Will definitely switch it out.

You never understand the size of a case until someone puts a micro atx motherboard in a full tower.

It is only a mid tower case that he has, not full.

yep. first time builder, had no idea what things would look like when i ordered them. Mobo upgrade would be the first thing on the list.

No need to, that motherboard is great. Size is irrelevant.

quality parts, i might suggest grabbing an aftermarket cooler, my ocd is asking me why didnt he get the matching msi gaming gpu for his msi gaming mobo

Yah should have hehe. As I said, kept buying individual items as they went on sale. Sort of rushed it in the end.

i know. Wasnt very efficient at all. Thought I did my research but didnt realize there were more things to research. Anyhow, mobo was on the cheap side, might change it out even.

oh, it was mostly tongue-in cheek; I'd do the same thing if it made monetary sense to do so.
