This being my first build and being on a budget i tried to keep the ability to upgrade in mind. I started this build on Black Friday and bought parts based on their prices throughout November-January. I got it all together somewhere in January. This being my first build, it took me about 3 hours total(was EXTRA cautious) and re-read 2x before doing anything). After getting everything together, i got a boot the very first time :). Installed Windows 7 and was up and running within 20 mins.
So far, it has handled everything i can throw at it: All at 1080p including: Tomb Raider(ultra). Bioshock Infinite(Ultra), Battlefield 4 (Ultra-Single player), Metro Last Light(High), Crysis 3(High), GTA 4(High), Black Ops 2 (Ultra) Far Cry 3(Ultra) Saints Row 3(Ultra).
I was waiting a while to build my first Desktop but when GTA 5 come to PS3/Xbox360 i decided to jump on it with the hope that it would soon come to PC(doesn't look like it will any time soon). I was planning on throwing another 7870 into the build but it seems like it i forgot to take the PSU into consideration. I have read that 500W won't be enough.
I couldn't find the coreect mouse and headset i bought but iit can be found on amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/ZPS-Surround-Headband-Headphone-Microphone/dp/B00FBWQRPO/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1396632305&sr=1-1&keywords=sades+7.1
All in all i am happy with the rig and the low price i got everything for, but i am a bit disappointed that i did not get a larger capacity PSU. Please note that this case provides little to no cable management so please don't badger me on that. 3D Mark 11 Performance Score 3DMark Score 6706 3DMarks Graphics Score 8062 Physics Score 4494 Combined Score 4404 Graphics Test 136.08 fps Graphics Test 239.61 fps Graphics Test 352.26 fps Graphics Test 423.81 fps Physics Test 14.27 fps Combined Test 20.48 fps
