Description

Nothing Special.

Just the unholy matrimony of an FX CPU and a GeForce card.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

For a cheap cooler, it managed to OC my CPU to a stable 4.2.

Storage

Pros: Well, It's an SSD. That's it. Cons: Its only a couple of MB's faster than a HDD if you buy the 120 GB model. Disappointing.

Video Card

Pretty good for £100.

I built this last year ( before the release of the 950 ) and my budget was £500. Prices were fluctuating (e.g Cheapest ram was £69.99 about 107 dollars.) and I could only order from Amazon UK so my options were severely limited. The 6300 went up to £95 or about 145 USD and that increased my budget way too high.

In fact here's a build for **£500 in 2015**:http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/LV4MhM

Let's just say the UK has a smaller PC Component market than the US.

This was my first build. I didn't necessarily make the best decisions.

Any reason for the 4300? There are WAY better options for gaming for the money.

True he could of just got a 6300 for $8 more

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

Or even an 860k, or a Pentium which beats the 860k and 4300 easily.

Jtridin 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

yeah

PCAllen submitter 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

Bruh, the Pentium G3258 can't run some games so that's where its insane overclocking ability fails it.

Sorry, you are just 100% incorrect. There is not any truth to that statement at all.

PCAllen submitter 1 Build 2 points 42 months ago

Some games need 4 threads and/or physical cores. An example of this is far cry 4 which refuses to run on dual cores. Another example is Battlefield 4 which linustechtips showed that it would not boot on dual cores.

Edit: Could you elaborate on my incorrections.

PCAllen submitter 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

I' m in the UK. At the time, the 6300 was approximately $145.

Jtridin 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

ah

PCAllen submitter 1 Build 1 point 42 months ago

What would have been your suggestions?

tiny_voices 4 Builds 1 point 42 months ago

For gaming? Probably an i3 with an H81/h85 motherboard. Easily beats the 4300 in every game.

I built this way before the 950 was released.

It wasn't anything special but it was okay, I guess.
