This build was fun, I am really happy with the total cost of everything.
Fire strike Score: http://www.3dmark.com/fs/6136180 Before you yell at me in the comments. I am aware of the massive bottleneck the CPU puts on the GPU. EDIT: No bottleneck anymore, upgraded to a good budget quad-core.
I put this PC together for the sole purpose of reselling it, I tried to get the most performance per dollar I could.
CPU: This build originally had an A4-6300, but I eventually upgraded it to an Athlon 860k because I wanted it to be able to run games that require a quad core.
Motherboard: It was cheap, it had good reviews, hard to go wrong.
RAM: Great quality RAM for the price. Originally just had a 4GB stick in it, but I added another because people have been asking me on the listing if it can run Starwars Battlefront, and that game requires 8GB to run, so I made it 8 to see if those people will buy it now.
HDD: I got a good deal for this Hard drive on eBay.
GPU: I was originally going to put a much less powerful GPU in this machine, because the CPU seemed a bit slow for this card, but I scored the card on eBay for about $80 and I couldn't not use it. It isn't a problem anymore since I upgraded it to an 860k. I was able to easily overclock this card quite a bit and still have it running nice and cool.
Case: Super cheap case that looks very nice for the price it's at. Cable management is a nightmare and I ended up shoving all the cables in the hard drive bays. The drive bays are awful, I don't even think I should call the bays, because its just a vertical sheet of metal with screw holes, and you just have to screw your drives into it and they just hang there and you just have to hope they don't fall. I would call them drive mounts. Edit: I zip-tied all the cables into a bundle and duck taped them to the side of the case behind the drive mounts. (there is absolutely no space to put cables behind the back side panel)
PSU: I had it sitting around. Only has 50w overhead when you add the max power usage of all the parts, which is a little sketchy but a torture test proved the computer stable. I will probably upgrade the PSU before I ship it just to make sure it doesn't burn my customer's house down.
OS is not pirated, Windows 10 Technical Preview is free to insiders, which is how I got my hands on it for free.
Outstanding price for a decent quad core. Perfect for people who want to upgrade their APU systems with a dedicated card and a nice processor, without buying a new motherboard.
Seems like a solid motherboard, great for budget builds. Its a bit finicky though and takes patience to set up properly. The BIOS has lots of options including some basic overclocking.
Great for budget builds, stable and cheap.
Great value: runs fine and is super cheap.
Quiet and relatively fast drive.
Great video card, super easy to overclock, and very quiet even while under large loads.
Pros: Great case for budget builds. Decently Sturdy. Looks super nice especially at this price point.
Cons: Cable management is a nightmare. Hard drive mounts are super sketchy, it's just a vertical sheet of metal with screw holes in it, so you have to screw your hard drives in on one side and they just hang there only attached on one side.
Reliable and quiet power supply. Plenty of connectors for expansion. Only complain is that the fan is a bit noisy under load, but it's probably just because my system doesn't have many watts overhead, so it's probably straining to run it close to max power usage.
