This Machine was built as my first custom PC and it was built for Gaming and Researching. It was also built because I had seen so many People Build their own custom PCs and that made me want one of my own to show off to the world!
I managed to use an ISO image on my USB Flashdrive to get a clean install of my copy of Windows 8.1 Pro for Students, because it was the cheapest OS option I could use, and I am also a Student so I qualify for the offer. Also, Microsoft only offers this option as a Download Only File. This was a downside because I didn't have a computer running Windows 7 or later in my possession so I had to borrow someone else's computer to download the ISO and setup the Flashdrive for OS booting.
Then when I ran the computer for a short period of time (2 days) the CPU overheated because I unknowingly tried to Overclock the PC (Stupid me...) and I had to remove the CPU in the night to cool it down and when I rebooted it into the BIOS, I realised my gross mistake.
Also, I forgot to download Drivers for the Graphics Card and my CPU chipset so the System completely rejected the incredible Radeon R7 chip I had on die on the APU... (I literally got 1 FPS in the most basic games such as NFS Underground 2) so the moral of the story is, INSTALL YOUR DRIVERS!
However, those were the only downsides of the build. Now for the Upsides!
Prior to Building the computer I had absolutely no knowledge of Computer Hardware so I spent Days figuring out which part went with what and now I come out the other end a person more educated in the art of Computer building.
The System is a Beast on Steam games (predominantly TF2 and Unturned [The games that I play...]) running 100+ FPS on the default settings so I beefed Unturned up to max settings and it was still humming at a totally playable 30 FPS! What a machine I have built!
Now all that's left to do is to figure out how to use all 2133 mhz of that G Skill RAM... still running at 1600Mhz.
Anyways, I seriously recommend this build for someone who, like me, is getting into the fray of building computers. And I definitely recommend AMD's Kaveri APUs (A8-7600, A10-7850K. A10 7700K & A10-7800) for all those of you on a budget and trying to build a System without the hassle of buying an expensive Graphics Card.
EDIT: Some kind soul on TomsHardware.com directed me towards the best way to run my RAM at 2133 Mhz so now my build is completely what I expected it to have been... maybe even better. Its runnings brilliantly without any problems whatsoever, so I really recommend this build!
ANOTHER EDIT: The rig is running 60fps on TF2 with FRAPS and 100+ on the beta Unturned 3.0 so I am really happy with the build's performance.
