Description

This is a intro level budget build at it's finest. I started out with a 7770 and decided that wasn't enough for Battlefield 4 so I stepped it up to a R9 270x. Which averages out at about 50FPS with every thing maxed out the FX-6300 Was chosen because it will not bottleneck the 270x. as you can see I went with only a half a Tb of storage which is kind of small for most builds, but my previous pc was 500gb and I never maxed out so I thought user would be fine. As you can see I scrapped a PSU from an old pc. The thing is old PC's didnt understand power management so they had some pretty beefy PSU's so for scrapping a PSU I reccomend pulling one out of a PC Pre 2002, it was fairly easy to put together some minor frustration with Xigmatek's Recon stand off design and the fact that the LED's were DOA, but for the most part easy sailing. I reccomend this build for anyone getting in to the PCMR.

Any man or woman who proves his or her dedication to PC building by foregoing flooring, furniture, household appliances and possibly food in order to prioritize a budget build, is a real hero in my eyes.

Hopefully on its deathbed it didn't take any parts with it, like the mobo or gpu. Just buy a evga 600b for Ike $60 and you'll be good to go....hopefully

Yeah the mobo nor the gpu are fried, I had a spare but its kind of hokey some im gonna buy a 700W thats twice as much as the minimum is so this should treat my components well

Like the 4pin running over the gpu, yeah I think this case has enough cable management to fit maybe 1 sata cable back there
