This is probably my record for best performance for the money, I'm pretty happy with it.
It started when I found an R9 290X on craigslist for only $50. I knew I had to jump on that deal before anybody else did. The guy was really nice, he just said he had no use for it and he needed it gone.
I also got the CPU, MOBO, and RAM in a bundle deal on ebay that I was pretty happy with. I grabbed a refurbished HDD and everything else new.
I'm pretty proud of the cable management I pulled off in the cheap case. Really happy with how it turned out. Now I just have to find it a new home!
Still a very capable CPU in 2019.
I was impressed with the performance from a card this age. It trades blows with the GTX 1060 6GB and the RX 580 8GB, granted it runs a lot hotter and uses a lot more power.
Pretty nice case for the money considering it actually has some room for cable management along with 3 fans included and plenty of room for airflow.
Definitely a cheaper unit, but it's a reputable brand and I'm not going to be pushing more than 500W most of the time. If you're overclocking, I probably wouldn't recommend it.
