Description

I built this machine because I needed something that was somewhat inexpensive but could still run all my games as well as having enough storage to hold all of my photoshop and video editing projects.


CPU: I chose this because a friend said that he had one and it worked really well and it was also cheaper than and Intel Pentium or i3.

Motherboard: I chose this because it was a pretty cheap motherboard that still had everything I needed and more RAM slots to upgrade in the future.

RAM: It's 8 gigs, DDR3, and it was free. What more can I say?

Storage: It has 2TB of storage so plenty of room for all of my games and its a good brand.

Graphics Card: It was free.

Fractal Design Define R4: Easily one of my favorite cases, it's super quiet and super easy to work in.

Optical Drive: It does its job.

Windows 8.1 Pro: I like this OS and like to Graphics Card it was free.

Monitor: I'm still waiting for this piece to be shipped to me so I'll tell you what I think then.

Wireless Network Adapter: It's fast and nice and small so you can barely see it.

Power Supply: It's from a good brand, it has enough watts, and it was free.


Free Parts: All of these were gifts from my Uncle from his old builds and they were a huge help.

Upgrades

Graphics Card: This is the first thing I'm going to upgrade and I'll probably get a Radeon R7 265 or an R9 270X.

CPU & Motherboard: I want to get an FX 8350 with an FM3 socket Motherboard.

RAM: I'll add another 8 gigs.


As soon as my monitor gets here I'll do the benchmarks and GPU Core Clock.

;p

I think it would have been better to wait and afford a better GPU... or mow 2 lawns. However, free parts are always the best value :)

Pretty garbage gpu.

Also the bottleneck you get from these two is massive the cpu is far too strong for your gpu going with an apu would have been a cheaper and better option and a10-7850k can cost you seven dollars while being a better cpu and gpu at the same time

Bra your talking about a 4 year old pc at this point and the a10 would have just came out so are your prices updated or at the time of release?

It really depends on where you buy it via time of release
