My First Desktop PC was Intel Celeron 333mhz, 64 mb ram, 4 MB VGA card running Windows 98. Later I upgraded to Athlon XP 2000+ based computer and last used it around 2008. Then I bought a new Acer 5583 Laptop and was using it since. The laptop has weared off and almost on it's death bed. But I decided I will retire it rather gracefully. Since 2010 I had been primarily gaming on my PS3. I love my PS3 but it was about time I upgraded to PC. This build was mainly to run Battlefield 4. After spending 850+ hours in Battlefield 3 on my PS3, I thought I deserved better. Enter Blue. Blue is heavily inspired by the config assembled by my good friend Saurav http://pcpartpicker.com/b/ENs .
Have been running the desktop for a week, and heating has been a major issue. I plucked out a 80mm fan from my previous desktop that helped drop couple of degree's but I was not happy. AMD Running >50 c is not good, so I decided to get Cooler Master Hyper 212 X. I am yet to assemble it, but I am disappointed with AMD :(.
The reason I chose AMD over Intel was it's price difference. But it seems after investing on a cooler to pull down the temperatures the price difference have come to more or less same. But on the brighter side AMD FX 6300 is an unlocked processor which means I can push those clocks higher. Over all I am satisfied with the RIG and shouldn't face any problem with newer games for 2-3 years.
Let me know of your thoughts guys! Will be adding more pics later :)
