This is my first build.
AMD FX-6300 Processor with Sapphire Radeon 7950 HD 3GB GPU. My processor and mobo came bundled from Newegg for $160. Very pleased with AMD's power. Plenty of RAM (8gb) and Storage space (1TB HDD and 120GB SDD). I run windows 8 and games I currently play from the SDD and use the HDD for storage. Right now im running a 620W psu which is more than enough for my gaming right now. Play in 1920x1080 in HD 1080p. Built this for under $1000 after all said and done (monitor included in that price). All parts bought from Amazon and Newegg. I've been playing BF4 on Ultra settings while maintaining very high FPS (70-110). I know that my cable management is bad. I'm working on that. The case uses 3 fans. One thing I want to upgrade on this already is the case. Not much room and doesn't have very many options for routing wires, I'm actually concerned that some of the cables will end up blocking proper air flow from the fans. Other than that, I'm very happy with it all and proud to call this my first build. Its screaming fast, CPU and GPU don't skip a beat. With windows 8 on the SSD, it takes no more than a few seconds to boot up. But...why in the world does windows 8 use 20GB of space?!?! WTF Microsoft?! Thats eating up 20gb of my SDD.
Comments are appreciated.
