Description

That was actually fun. I was gonna buy a used built PC(200$) around my area but realized I'll just build one and start from scratch and started reading and watching YT vids.

I will add 2 more 120mm fans and will try a positive pressure with filters(might make panty hose filters. any ideas?). lol

2(120mm) intake, 1(80mm) intake and 2(120mm) out. Any color suggestion? Corsair 2 120mm fans are coming soon.

No overclocking here. Dont know how to really and not interested atm. I was also gonna get the Spec-01 case but went with this one because the spec-01 looked too aggressive for me haha i wanted a discrete and "elegant"(whatever that means) looking case and corsair and fractal have really gorgeous looking cases.

Get some of those Corsair purple LED fans. Then you can say, "Violet, you're turning violet, Violet." This is a nice, frugal build. Quality part selection.

Hey man great budget build! Just wondering, is the FX-6350 still good? Does it truly offer the performance everyone says it has? Especially in games?

I remember seeing a video by Linus Tech Tips about making a PC that'll run esports and other slightly older titles at 4K. It ran off an FX-6350, though it did have a slightly more powerful graphics card (R9 285). Is it an i5? Nope, but for the price, especially considering it's age, it does pretty good.

So, would you still suggest it for modern day gaming, like GTA V, and Assassins Creed: Unity? It would be paired with, and R9 270x, or R9 280.

You could maybe manage it, but if you're set on AMD, the 8350 would be better, especially if you overclock it a bit. That said, an i5 would be a better choice. It'd be a bit more expensive (both getting the new CPU and new MB), but the performance increase would be quite noticeable.

I have one paired with a 750 Ti. I don't really play many AAA titles, and for like TF2, Minecraft, and CS:GO its great.

Assuming you're getting the Corsair AF-120 fans, paint the fan rings purple.

Overclocking isn't hard at all, I know the name makes it sound kind of scary, but its really just pressing the plus in minus buttons on your keyboard to change one or two numerical values.

Give it a few months and I bet there'll be an after-market cooler on and the overclocking will begin!
