Description

Been running games on a crappy laptop for the past 5-6 years so I decided it's time to build myself a gaming pc.

I mainly use the pc for playing some newer gen games like Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim and others and it's a great improvement over my laptop.

Cable management is really bad right now, but that's also partly because the case I got wasn't the greatest. I'll get around to rearranging the cables when I stop being so lazy.

I'm planning on getting an SSD and reinstalling the OS on it when I get the money and maybe upgrading my GPU.

The PC was actually built in July, but I finally decided to post it now, so the prices may be off a bit, but total was around 700-750$ CAD.

As for the wireless network adapter, I only bought it because the router is too far from my PC and there's no phone cable jack in my room so it can't be set up in my room.

Nice budget build! How is that wireless adapter working for you? I'm planning on purchasing that exact one.

It's working pretty good, my computer is roughly about 30-40 feet away from the router and the connection is at 5 bars. It dropped connection on me once since i've gotten it, but other than that it's great.

Have you tested any games on it?

Yea, most of the newer games like Bioshock Infinite and Borderlands 2 run on 1920x1080 on max graphic settings at about 50 fps so i'd say it performs pretty well.

Yea it was like that for me too, but I tried forcing it a little harder, the screws kinda just dug into the plastic and fitted.

Flip the PSU around so the cables would be a little easier to manage towards to back panel of the case.

I see there's only 1 rebate "per person" on those fans. Are you still going to try to send all 3 in or use your buddies are different names?

Besides the cable management, i like your PC. If i knew more about pcs than I do now, I would have got a replica of yours. kudos

I liiiiiiike your choices. It seems like a miracle how you got that much power out of $630.00 USD. (The AMD FX-6300 is a great choice too, one of my favorite processors.) ^ Nice build.
