Description

I use this PC for gaming, but plan to expand so I can use it for music production/editing. I want to be able to game, and make music with this PC. I probably will end up selling this one, but keeping the video card and the hard drives. But this will do for now.. Runs very good.. very solid. Boots quickly, and I was able to overclock to 4.1 stable. I got the parts cheap, thank you craigslist. Found a guy selling the motherboard with Ram for 90 dollars, and he threw in the processor, because he thought it didn't work. It had bent pins, I fixed them, and it runs PERFECT. I got the SSD and liquid cooling refurbished.. I got the 1tb out of an older HP that the motherboard had died in. All in all, it's a great fast PC.. I wanted to upgrade to dual GTX 760's, but the case isn't big enough, and the power supply won't be strong enough. As soon as I build the other pc, I will upload that. Thank you for looking. This is only my second complete build. My first was my sisters PC.. and the rest were more of upgrading PC's than building them. I also recently upgraded the fans.. and took my studio monitors out, and brought back my logitech G51 surround speakers, as the subwoofers in my gaming headphones have blown, and are out for repair. I wasn't able to overclock the memory, so it is actually underclocked.. it wasn't stable at stock speed, for whatever reason. I also did not overclock the video card, as it is solid at stock speed. If I had more money, i'd have a 780ti in there. But then.. that would be a whole different build. Updates I bought a m500 SSD for 50 dollars from craigslist.. and a Rosewill Lightning 1000 from ebay for 120... and a Seagate Barracuda on sale for 89 dollars, and added a cold cathode kit.

First off, GREAT DEALS. Man, that is one impressive price. The 6300 - 760 is a great combo. Very nice job.

Yeah, I get some AMD's that have bent pins now and then. Using a credit card to bend them back into place helps.

If I could get the deals you just got, I'd would have been all over it like white on rice! Very nice job!

DEM DEALS ;-;. Seriously, that's insane. What did you do/use to get such OP prices?

Sorry for the late reply. I just searching and kept looking on craigslist. Key is to be patient. I built this PC using the spare money from cutting grass over the summer! Also, looked for good refurbished deals. I bought my SSD and water cooler refurbished, from newegg.

That price is mind boggling. Awesome for the price. And it'll play games near max settings.

Thank you guys for the positive comments. I went the AMD route because.. well he gave it to me for free basically. The motherboard and ram were brand new when I bought them from the guy from craigslist. Never used, or opened. I am very happy, and glad I did a lot of hunting on craigslist and newegg. Very solid PC.
