Description

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.

Don't worry about the psu, it will be fine for some upgrades, it would take a hefty upgrade (like an i5/i7/fx8000 cpu and a 780/290) before you need a new one

Nice build. Dropped $1300 a while back on mine, to hit 60 in BF4. Using AA. It has jumped from 60 to 100 fps in recent patches. Think of your current performance as a base level. Also, no mantle involved, 780 all the way. Also, congrats on the dust filters.

I did all this performance without mantle and thank you.

Very nice build man! I'm getting a similar build very soon :) how is the Athlon doing for you? I'm thinking of purchasing a FX-4300 but if the Athlon's great I'll use that instead.

The CPU is fantastic. The price to performance for an fx cpu didn't make much sense to me and with mantle, this is even better. I recommend this because more fm2+ cpu's are coming out.

Really concerned on that CPU man. How is it going for you? Would suggest getting a 4300 or a 6300. And how's the case going for you? Big inside? More space for tons of fricken fans?

This isn't really a case great for airflow, but it has 2 fan spots in the front, one exhaust, and if you really needed to, the bottom. all but the bottom are 120/140 capable. And the cpu is fine I plan to upgrade the cooler later. This case was amazing to build in, lots of space and everything tool-free was straight forward, I highly recommend this case.

Just to nit pick here, it sounds very unlikely that a lower level part (270) (with all that implies e.g. cheaper materials to meet lower selling point and still give the manafactor a profit margin) will be able to have "better overclocking ability" than the higher level part(270X). Thanks

I see what you mean, I am comparing to the reference 270x, I'll add that. And I really went for the 270 because overclocked, the performance is greater than or equal to the 270x in most cases.
