Description

Overall this build is made for gaming. I have nt gotten an SSD yet because in Poland the build cost me 1050 dollars instead of the 900 in the U.S. I did not have many problems except for the dead on arrival PSU and the fact that the Zalman case has a ver interesting way of connecting the front panel. I had to use an external CD/DVD drive to install windows bcause the USB"S refused to work. Overall really happy with the build except for these little problems and the problem with moving my steam games over everything went fine.

Except for a new monitor and maybe an SSD, any suggestion???

I know the cable manegment but I had problems with the PC and decided to enjoy it right now and get the cable manament later.

You guys are getting really mad at my CPU choice, it works fine with no bottlenecks. My MOBO and PSU are very upgradeble so when I decide to I will upgrade but in poland the 6300 costs 250 dollars rather than 100. I DON"T HAVE THAT MONEY!!!

I have fixed my cable managment and let me tell you: I am excited! It looks great with all the cables hidden on the side or in the back. (Will upload pictures soon)

Performance:BF4 on Ultra (Recording with shadowplay) at 60 FPS

Parts Rationale:

CPU:The 6300 is really expensive in Poland and the 4130 stays cool and runs games great, also rendering is no sweat for the PC.

MOBO:Great Motherboard for a good price, I decided to go with the REV. 4 edition so it is supposed to be ultra durable. My USB 3 sockets don't really work, I need to download drivers again probably but

HDD:1 TB is more than enough for me, I have all my games and files on it, it uses less than half the space.

GPU:Favorite part of the build. I wanted to go with the 760 but the 770 was a good choice. Runs most of my games on Ultra setting at 60 FPS. My friend has a 780 and doesn't get much better performance.

Case:Most dissapointing part of the build!!!! The case is rather flimsy with the plastic everywhere, the fans are ok but I expected more. The back PCI ports are the bend type not the screw in type. USB 3 on the front doesn't send data, it only charges.

PSU: Works like it is supposed to, no complaints.

Ram: Works ok no problmes here.

Wireless card:Really weak range is dissapointing

TV/Monitor, I bought it on a sale 2 years ago and it is great. 23 inch FUll HD is enough for me.

Mouse: Not the best build but I only got it for a year at the most.

You could/should really clean up your cables to make this thing look pretty.

What's the story with "goodram"?

I know the cable manegment but I had problems with the PC and decided to enjoy it right now and get the cable manament later. My friend sold me the ram for 30 bucks and it was in a good state so I decided to buy it from him.

You'll be glad when you do, it'll make a nice difference. Interesting, yeah never heard of goodram in the US, sounds like a good deal though.

Nice build pretty balanced +1 from me. For an SSD I recommend Either the Samsung 840 Evo or a Kingston HyperX.

Nice, but..something here confuses me. 4130 + 770 + 990FXA-UD3..You should have spent ~20 bucks more and gotten atleast the 6300..Spending more on the mobo then on the CPU wasn't the best decission..

At least he has a wicked motherboard that can support any FX processor, including the big 220W guys. He can always swap that CPU later if OP feels he needs more "oomph".

Sorry for not replying. In Poland for some messed up reson the 6300 is an extra 95 dollars (insane) I decided to go with this and when I need to upgrade I will :)

Same thing. All the AMD cpu and GPU prices went up due to mining in Poland

Mmm, spaghetti. Also, why the 4130? For that price, you should have been able to do at least a 6300.

I heard that before. I started with an x4 and decided to go with this instead. In Poland the 6300 is quite more expensive for some reason so I am going with this.

The whole CPU bottleneck

You guys seem to be really mad over my CPU choice. I would have gone with a different cpu if I had more money. I have no bottlenecs so far and I am loving the build.

My only question is why the Bulldozer CPU?

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

I didn't have the money for Intel so I went with AMD and this CPU suited me well, it works fine, I can run BF4 on Ultra and record at 60 FPS

  • 69 months ago

No, I mean like why Bulldozer and not Piledriver?

There were recently shortages of them in Poland and I decided to go with this one since it is quite powerful with what I use this PC for

Hey, I'm a bit late for the party, but where did you buy the parts? I also live in Poland and I was thinking of smiliar build but I don't know which shop would be good. Also, great build!

I've been reading online about the GTX 770 is the best way to go and I think you should compare it to the R9 280x.

  • 64 months ago

Well at the time of buying there were a few reasons why I chose this over the 280x. First off it was cheaert and second of all in had GeForce Expereince but since AMD is also getting those features it doesn't really matter anymore.

GTX 770 and 4130? I'm afraid you'll get a huge bottleneck, like really.

  • 70 months ago

no, there actually wont be any bottleneck. Its actually really hard to bottleneck a system.

  • 70 months ago

No bottle neck here. This will run games @1080p silky smooth.

Big bottleneck, my friend had the same problem. Overall nice build.

  • 70 months ago

No bottleneck so far :) Playing BF3 on 90+ FPS I will upgrade when I need to

I believe people underestimate the Raw Power the CPU has at its disposal, many people that see problems with that CPU, aren't in tune with their system, enough to know where the bottlenecking actually takes place. I run separate OS's to avoid bottlenecking in the software aspects of my system, I believe the CPU WAS a good buy, and for the price leaves you where you could Always upgrade to a better CPU in the future! +1

Thanks for this reply. You outn of everyone gave the most resonable and understandble reasons. I will maybe upgrade to a 8320 but so far I don't see a reason why.
