This is my first custom built computer. I wish I would've chose better parts but it severs me well nevertheless.
If you still have the chance, i would say return the 4350 and get a fx-6300
all depends on the games he plays, if they have a max of 2 cores usage, (like minecraft + optifine) the 4350 would have higher performance than the 6300
I can never get over how sexy those green MSI cards are
Yea, that's what I thought when I built it. Then I looked and I could have gotten better performance with an EVGA 960 or even with a 380 (although EVGA doesn't make AMD cards so I would have to get a gigabyte or an Asus)
You could have got a 4gb gpu for the same amount of money. Give or take it could be better or worse.
As long as he's gaming at 1080p that's fine; the 4GB 960s don't really have the bandwidth to make a difference over the 2GB versions at 1440p. I agree with Inferno331 that he might have been better off going with a FX-6300. (Disclaimer: I run a FX-8320 with my 960.)
Thanks! I looked at your build and I have a question about that case, is it roomy inside and also how much space is there for cable management in the back?
yeah there is much enough space inside the case but It was tough when it comes to cable management . there isn't much space back there.
I wouldn't suggest it nowadays cuz there are many cases with great quality at cheaper price than this.
I was thinking to upgrade to Phanteks Enthoo PRO M Acrylic Window later this year and thanks for looking at my build. cheers...!
You picked all parts very right, and price/quality ratio is amazing here :).
(Though I'd always stick to Gigabyte/ASUS MOBOs, and afford the extra $30-40).
Really, I didn't know that people didn't trust them. I just picked it because it had usb 3.0 with the 980 chipset. If you try and pick a mobo with the 970 chipset it says that it may need a bios update before using vishera CPUs but I don't have another CPU to toss in that IS compatable to give it a bios update so I just went with the ASRock
The only thing about this build that I don't like is how damn loud the stock AMD coolers are. You can hear my PC from my kitchen while its on in my room (the kitchen is on the opposite side of the house and down one level. although I live in a town house so it's not far from the bottom of the stairs to the kitchen)
And I know it's the CPU cooler because I can turn it down to 50% and I can't hear any other parts making noise. The gpu is pretty much silent and same with the case fans.
