Description

My second build ever done was built for my girlfriend. I actually enjoyed creating this one as the s340 case by NZXT was a breeze to build in. I'm actually quite jealous I didn't get a case this sweet or simple. This is also my first AMD Build and I'm actually enjoying what I see so far. My girlfriend likes to use my computer sometimes and she's never had one before so I decided to build one for her so she can call her own. My girlfriend is not a gamer, she just likes to surf the web, HOWEVER, I slid an 750TI mainly so I can have a little LAN Party with family or friends who come over. It is serving its purpose well and I ran into absolutely no issue except for a couple missing hardware which was no big deal.

-Side Note- So I bought everything for $350 at microcenter, so the price of 450$ isn't exactly accurate on the build. They had a deal for 40$ off a compatible motherboard with a CPU. Then a couple things on this build were also cheaper at the store however, I don't quite remember. This is running 1080p pretty well to me.

I probably would've gotten a cheaper case and a better GPU to be honest. You effectively used about 1/5th of your budget on a case. Now that that's out of the way. Nice build anyways :) Hope she likes it!

I literally would've gone cheaper on the case as well, however, she actually saw that case one day and absolutely loved it so I decided to go through with it :)

You could've also gotten that same gpu for $99. The zotac version is on sale for $99 quite frequently.

I mean I guess. Just a lot of money put into odd purchases, I guess. Either way, it's done now so no going back xD

I like this PC, but like D0RAW say's I would've gotten a cheaper case but if your girlfriend like that case it's ok.

do you by any chance know what fps counter strike global offensive runs at?

Wayy more than 60... I used to run cs on a i3 with intel HD Graphics 3000 at 30fps so you will be fine

I don't know tbh. But I'm pretty sure if it runs Blade and Soul at maxed with minor hiccups, then it can run CSGO without issues at all.

What a life you live. Bravo. I cant believe you willingly paid that for that card though, my buddy recently got a 960 for not much more at all.

Nice looking build. I had been eyeballing the S340 at MicroCenter when I picked up my Mobo/CPU combo as well.

Not to dog on the FX-6300 WHATSOEVER, but did you consider checking out the FX-8320E ? At least in the Cincinnati location, both the FX-8320E (8-core 3.2GHz 95W) and FX-6300 (6-core, also 95w) were $89.99 and still offered the $40 off the inclusion of a compatible motherboard.

Your girlfriend is like mine, except I have gotten mine into gaming! And her build is quite different, I went initially with an i5-4590 + GTX 970 but that was so overkill I pushed her down to (initially) a GTX 760, then instead overclocked an existing Radeon 7850 2GB I had and she's running smooth as can be asked for at 1080p.
