Description

This is my first budget PC gaming build. I actually got all of my parts together for around 600 dollars due to sales and price dropped. I chose the AMD FX 6300 because it was good for its price and how amazing it performs when overclocked. I chose the Msi 970 am3+ mono because it match my theme i was going for which was black and red. Also because it was high rated and newer then the old am3+ mobo. The memory stick was on sale for 30 dollars when i got it so i decided to get it because of its price. I choose the EVGA gtx 750ti SC because it was on sale for 110 dollars and it was good enough for me for the games i choose to play. You can play games with this GPU using medium to high settings. Lastly I chose the NZXT s340 case because of how it looks and it covers the PSU and hard drives. The stock heatsink that came with the FX 6300 was horrible and the temp were around 30 celsius idle and 61 celsius when gaming. I decided to upgrade to the Corsair H100i Gtx water cooling and it was amazing. I overclocked my CPU to 4.4 with 1.440 volt stable. The temp are 20 celsius idle and 40 celsius while gaming. Overall its amazing and will upgrade to FX 8350 and MSI GTX 960 2gb or 4gb.

Can't even tell it's a budget build aesthetically. Looks great!

Yeah, judging by the looks I thought it would be at least one thousand. I could tell though by looking closely that they had a 750 ti, so then I got confused..... ._.

You would have to get up close to realize this is a budget build... amazing job working within your budget, very aesthetically pleasing!

Nice build, but I would recommend the FX-8370 instead of the 8350 due to better binning.

Next upgrade should be to intel, 6300 to 8350 wont do much. correct me if i'm wrong.

I do want intel , but its just that its expensive and will have to basically build a new rig . I am planning to do intel i7 rig in the future.

I agree with g7hsro, I'd don't think you will see much performance improvement going to a fx 8xxx from a good fx 6300 overclock, unless you need those extra threads for multitasking. I would just upgrade the gpu until you go to a full system upgrade, I had a r9 380 4gb in a previous build paired with an fx 6350 at 4.5GHz and it chomped through every game I threw at it. Cpu core usage always below 65%. Or you could get an r9 390 8gb as a stepping stone to a future build.....

You don't see many color-matched budget builds out there, great build! +1

Also, I've used the same wallpaper before except it was blue instead of red! :P

Would it work if I mimicked this build and used the same parts except replaced the case with a corsair carbide and the liquid cooler with an air cooling system as well as bumping graphics card up to an R9 380?

Colors and cable management are on point. I honestly really like this build. Even if it is "budget"

This looks like a high-end PC, even though it was relatively cheap; excellent parts selection!

If you were on a budget, I would've went with a MUCH cheaper cooler than the H100i GTX and put the money into a much better gpu.

You could have ditched the cooler and got a stock i5 and motherboard for the same cost, and gotten much better performance. If your CPU cooler costs more than your CPU, it's time to reevaluate your build.
