Description

This is a computer I originally built as my first custom PC I've ever built.

I originally bought the initial parts seen in the pictures during Black Friday / Cyber Monday of 2014. Original Parts are: CPU - AMD FX 8320E GPU - Sapphire R7 265 RAM - Kingston HyperX FURY Blue 8GB MB - ASUS M5A97 R2.0 Storage - WD Black Series 2TB HDD / 250GB SSD Case - Apevia X-HERMES Blue

9/24/16 - Pending parts update and install. Replacing the dated GPU and adding RAM. Going to be replacing the tower to accommodate the Corsair H100i CPU cooler. Everything else is standing by. Will eventually replace the CPU most likely, although I don't know what I am going to go with. Most likely staying AMD.

Maybe sort out those cables? It would improve airflow.

The last picture all the cables are tucked and rerouted. The kinda crooked photo. The first one was before installing OS and realizing something wasn't right lol

I will, I was at work when I posted this and also stated the prices were different in my description. First time on 3P too

Why did you got with a AMD FX-8320E rather then the FX-8320? There is only a marginal power difference (in terms of performance and power usage is only about $7 more a year) but there is a large cost difference with being able to get the 8320 for around $120.

Good build all and all, I like seeing the more odd ball CPU's in rigs. I get very tired of seeing the unlocked i5 and i7's in 90% of the rigs on this site.

I actually got the 8320E for $105 on black friday as opposed to the $125 for the 8320. It was strong enough for me as the computer I had at the time was an ASUS laptop from 2009. If I needed the extra power I would've spent more, but my budget was around $630 and after changing my choices on the graphics card and the case I was already at $628 so I called it there.
