Very nice and very clean build. Great job. Most people would have gone with Intel G4560 or even i3 6100. But at the end of the day it's your money and you spend it as you wish. Great job.

Why FX-6300 when you could have gone with the g4560?

AMD FX 6300 has more cpu cores and can easily be overclocked plus the price $$.

Cores do not mean power.

G4560 is better, and it's cheaper. It's turbo speed gives it another 15% performance (about)

My intention is to run it as a silent server with some gaming thrown at it.

dude m8, he made his choice. If he wanted an AMD CPU to use and mess around with, it is not your place to tell him otherwise.

well sure, but wouldn't you want them to get the better option? When buying a car, you don't let somebody buy a crappy car if there's a better one within their budget.

But, the car he bought does the job it needs him to do well. Sure he might get a newer one eventually, but crappy cars can be fixed to. Same with his PC, sure he might not have the best equipment for that price in it, but it is what he felt he needed for the tasks he will be doing.

Edit : the CPU he got was at least $20-30 cheeper than the Intel

I was merely correcting the lad. Informing him that the G4560 would've been a better option.

  • 27 months ago

I know, but I mean for him to do that option he would have to buy a whole new motherboard on top of the cost of the new CPU

Edit: 1 day he might get a new CPU, MB, and RAM who knows what he will get.

But in gaming it performs worse than the G4560, and the FX-6300 is $20 more expensive. At an overclock of 4.7Ghz it still loses to an I3 6100, which is the same as a g4560, give or take 5 frames.

He will realize that soon. I mean, the g4560 is sold out really everywhere in the US. The 6100 would've been a good starting point.

I recommend you really do research on parts. It's obvious you didn't read a whole lot before gathering parts, which is fine everyone makes mistakes their first build. It'll really help with part choices when you build your next machine/upgrade

Nice build bro. I hope it does all you need it to do.

Great job i woulkd have gotten a pentium myself but its p to you

you could have saved a little money on the build with a cheaper case and defiantly cheaper ram like Hyper X but other wise it is a amazing build for the price. I would have went for a AMD graphics card for free sync and better drivers because i have had nothing with trouble with my 970. I like the cpu choice what did you over clock it to.

i didn't overclocked it.

you should they are very over clockable and gives a very large performance boost

Great build i would have used almost the same parts.

The system I built last year was a fx6300 system. I had fx6300, 16gb ddr3-2400, 1tb HDD, 600w power supply, r9 380 2gb and all in a thermaltake v3 black edition. Everything cost me $330. That system lasted me awhile playing everything I threw at it on ultra/high full 1080p 60+fps. But I just built my new system here is my parts list https://pcpartpicker.com/list/g3qgNN But the price on the list isn't correct. The monitor and HDD I already had. My total build cost is actually $700

After the M.2 SATA III is installed it is much faster!!! :)

in early 2016 I went with Skylake instead of AMD, I chose the i3 paired with R9 380 GPU. Works smoothly for BF4.

AM3 is a dead-end so is FM2, but it's YOUR computer and YOU built it, to your likeing and to your budget.
