Description

The total price was $486.00. The reason I named this computer Thunder is because it's as loud as Thunder while playing games with the stock fans, and My name is Thunder (I'm native american) The aim for this build was A keep it as cheap as possible, and B keep it powerful enough to edit videos and do GFX Design, and C play most games on high to ultra with out AA, and D Live stream record and play games all at the same time which it does well haha.

-CPU The reason I chose this CPU was because because it had awesome reviews and nothing performed as well as it at it's price range.

-Motherboard It was $45.00 and had alright reviews and was compatible My other parts.

-RAM It was cheap ram and it works well.

-HDD It was $26.00 and works well, and it's 500GB, it was the best HDD for that price range, I'm definitely planing to grab a SSD here soon.

-GPU It was cheap and maxes every game I play.

-CASE Nicest case for $30 and has nice cable management.

-PSU I paid $25.00 for it new and it performs well.

-OS I got windows 8.1 pro which I love and it was free because I'm using the trial.

How I paid for this build. I'm 15 and where I live you can't get that many jobs at My age, so I sold my 360 pvr and with a little Christmas money I built this bad boy.

The grand total was $486.00 USD or 292.28 GBP or 538.62 AUD or 539.36 CAD. And with that budget I got a 8 core CPU, 8GB of ram, a 500gb HDD, a nice GPU, and a nice case.

WOW. Nice price. I would have gone with a different motherboard, but it's still great. You may want to clean up those cables, though.

Not bad except that motherboard is going to fry very quickly with a 8320.

I doubt it to be honest there's a ton of happy people that have 8350's running on that board for a while, my 8320 oc is like a 8350 running at 4.0ghz.

Trust me, a low quality biostar 4+1 vrm with no cooling taking 125+ volts will fry in no time.

Go up in flames that's a bit of a exaggeration. My CPU is on the compatible list and the board supports up to 140 watt TDP I know plenty of people that's happy with this board.
