Hello, I am thirteen and this is my first build. I chose this build carefully to get the most performance I could for around one thousand dollars.I built this purely for gaming and get 70fps in Battlefield 4 in intense battle on very high. This thing runs kinda hot but I think my software is faulty. I plan to buy some bitfenix spectre fans in blue. My only regret is buying the power supply with such low voltage because I have to replace it to crossfire another video card if ever necessary.
I decided on the cpu because Austin Evans on Youtube used it and it performed great. (Also it was the best FM2+ cpu that didn't have built in graphics). The Mobo was chosen for its options to expand if necessary. It is crossfire capable, 1 pci slot, 1 pcie slot, and 4 ram slots. I chose the RAM because I got it for seventy dollars and it looked great. *Either my motherboard or RAM caused my RAM to run 1333 Mhz by default.* but luckily, the bios was easy to use, (It has mouse support!) overclocking the RAM was straight forward. For a long lasting, stable system, an SSD was a must for me. Carey Holzman on Youtube convinced me to invest a little more for a better SSD than I had chosen. The HDD, what can I say, my ten year old Windows XP dinosaur has Seagate in it. For the GPU, I went for the 270 because it was twenty Dollars cheaper than the 270x, similar clock speed, and better overclocking ability. Honestly, I picked this case for the tool-less design, solid build, and sleek design. I went with evga PSU for their great reputation. It's great, but I went too low on the wattage.
