Description

Built this PC for gaming and of course, Battlefield 4. I really like the 7950. I overclocked it to 1200mhz, 1400mhz memory without touching the voltage. So much bang for your buck. Ran the BF4 beta on ultra, should get 60 fps when the game is released optimized. This is the first computer with an ssd that i have had. Did I need one? no. Will I ever go back? nope! The boot speed and overall snappiness of the computer is worth the money. I haven't overclocked the i5 yet, but I'm getting around to it soon. Windows 8 is also cool. It takes some getting used to because everything is hidden from you. I highly recommend the ASUS board, or any asus board. Expect crazy good reliability. Comes with great UEFI BIOS and asus suite management software. (yay fan expert 2). So far, I am so happy with this build.

well thought out build, although the listed prices in CAD make this look like it costed more than it probably did, how much did it cost you? the monitor in CAD is almsot 600 and the ram is listed at $267

Corsair 200R :D. Very nice build, but I have the same case and I know you can do a lot better with those cables!

EDIT: Just noticed the non modular PSU. Still, I think it can be better. :P

I fixed those cables up nice and tidy! The pic I uploaded was a little messy i agree

Though it is nice, I think you could have gotten a Radeon 7970 or R9 280x for close if not the same price. Other than that, the pricing is great and it is fairly balanced.

Take my up-vote! +1

Thanks for the vote! I am regretting not waiting for the 280x but the 7950 was about $100 off on newegg.

Why not go with a Kingston Hyper X 120Gb SSD. It's much faster and only about $100 on Newegg.

You'd be better off with the Radeon 7970 instead of the 7950.

Other than that, good job.
