Description

great little rig for under 600 bucks the only thing i reused from my old computer was a dvd drive and a single case fan.

the only issue that i came across was that the case sides do not let you close due to clearance issues with the video card. other then that it was easy to put together and runs great.

i had to cut a clearance hole to make it fit.

Why did you use an Apu with an r9 380?

Maybe in case his card goes out?

Idk I am trying to give the benefit of the doubt.

APU+GPU combo is great because if you sell your GPU because you're upgrading, at least you have something to play with when you don't have the GPU :P

Well I guess it makes sense if you look at it that way....

this is exactly why. also redundancy is a good thing in case of a card failure. i think the next build i will go different to a different cpu.

Whoops. Yeah, that's why it's always a good idea to make sure your case supports high length and width video cards.

Besides that, good build. (Could of gone with an 870K instead to save money...)

If you look at the image I don't even think this would have helped, there is literally no space for any cables there haha.

the 90 degree ones are cut smaller by around 30% so it may have worked, but otherwise yes, they should have looked at that a bit better.

Could have worked, just be a big bulge in the case :P

its too late now but at least i can easily see when i need to clean it. but mistakes will always be made for a first build and it still runs great.

Why an A10? Why didn't you go for an fx or i3 instead?

This, he could have gotten the 8300 for less money or spent less for an 880k.

Good build, with the price of the A-10, I would've suggested an 860K or 880K for better price-to-performance, or for a few more bucks you could've gone with an FX8320 or 8350

Help us, DHCarr! The people are confused about the A10!

Suggestion: Bend the cables the opposite way to plugin for the GPU.

Im seeing alot of negitivity toward the a10, i was thinking about using it for my first build. Any reason i sounldnt or any better prossesers?

The A8-7600 actually is slightly better on the grounds of raw performance.

He probably had the A10 beforehand, then upgraded to the 380.

no it was the first build i have ever done and i have had graphics cards go and let the magic smoke out before so i wanted redundancy.
