Description

This was built with a budget of less than $380. I managed to do fairly well and got some excellent deals. It runs quite nicely, although it certainly has room for future improvements.

I added a small fan of my own to the back of the case, which increased the noise level because the fan was more than five years old. I also added a Wireless PCI card that I already owned.

One thing to note: the 12V (4-pin) cable is almost too short for the motherboard; it's very tight and actually goes under the graphics card. I would recommend adding an extension for about $5 extra.

I have this exact gpu in my build and I can say that it works nicely and I think that it's often underestimated. I can run bf4 fine on medium/high with it at 25-40fps and league of legends very high at 90+fps. If you want to know more I wrote about it in my build description, don't want to say everything in a comment.

I haven't really stress-tested it, but as far as I can tell it's a great GPU.
