*i apoliqize for crappy image quality

Ok, so before you say anything, yes the parts list is weird but i have a good reason. A relative gave this to me, and i upgraded it for better performance. so i kinda sorta built this...well at least part of it. :D i use it for gaming, video editing, and for schoolwork. here are my old specs -amd phenom -12gb ddr3 1333mhz -500w psu -gtx 750 ti -2x 500gb hard drives -intel 530 ssd so as you can see, a bit of a wierd system, so i figured it's time for an upgrade! i purchased all of the new parts from microcenter, the ram from newegg, and wifi adapter from amazon. the rest was already included in the system. I had fun upgrading the system. Here is my full updated parts list

CPU-Ignore the slow clock speed, and this one nice little chip. i got a deal on micro center and this cpu was only $100 dollars, which compared to the 6300, also in the same price range range delivers 2 extra cores and better performance.

GPU-so, i dint choose the 750 ti, but it runs great, with most of my games on 60-80fps 1080p. i have it overclocked with afterburner, but ive got no idea what the speeds are. i hope to soon upgrade to an r9 280 or 280x, but for now, the 750 ti is a perfect fit.

RAM-Nothing special, but it gets the job done will upgrade to 16gb in the futre

MOBO-great board packed full of features

PSU-more than enough power and very efficent, unfortunatley not as convenient as modular

HDD's-wierd choice of parts, but offers plenty of storage hope to do a raid config soon

SSD-i use it as my boot drive. very fast

CASE-ok little case not to nice looking but works great

WIFI ADAPTER-works great i get some really fast speeds and software installed easily

OS-windows 8 is the worst os since vista :D i hope windows 10 doesnt suck as much

+1 for a fellow AMD/NVIDIA build! I feel like this is a great combo and I don't see enough of it nowadays.

Hi nice build i like it!!! And i have a couple of questions: 1. How is the mother doing for the build??? 2. Did you overclock and how high did you get it?? 3. Do you think that this board would do better in a crossfire and overclock setup??? i have the 8320 by the way. 4. Chocolate chip muffin??? Dang it you made me hungry!! Haha 5. Im sorry but Dat Cable management doe!!! LOL :)

thank you for your comment! the mobo is actually very nice. i said cpu is OCd to 3.9ghz, but its actually 3.6ghz the cooler i have is a beast and keeps my cpu running at some nice temperatures. the board is optamized for crossfire or sli and has i think 4 pci 16x slots. let me explain the name.....i like muffins, and i couldnt to think of a better name so.....yah :D yes the cable managment is terrible, but if you think this is bad check out my other build! https://pcpartpicker.com/b/XxKZxr
