First off, if you didn't notice by the title, this was a build that I started with the money I had at hand. Also my first ever build. Now that's over with lets get down to the good stuff.
Yes I did want this to be an AMD build, I had to got with the FX-6300 Black Edition I actually picked up for about 90 bucks. And from a non-bias standpoint, it kicks @$$. 90 bucks got me 4.6 ghz in my little budget build. However I was able to get it to 5.2 GHZ and hold some pretty solid temps recently :D! No complaints about this thing what so ever. For the cooler I went with a liquid cooler because overclock. and not to mention how cool it looks. This cooler has been modified over time so pretty much all negative reviews are outdated. The only little complaint is the screws were put in the wrong bags but for a Chinese company, I can't blame 'em. I was really impressed with the motherboard, it was pretty nice for the price and the BIOS is pretty fancy. I kind of wish I went for cheaper ram so I could stretch a little farther but I don't have nay complaints on the ram. Strangely they run at 1750 PCS instead of 1600 but I'm not complaining. I'm also impressed with the GPU. I Actually picked this up for $90. Even though it's just a 750 ti I don't have any complaints about the OC edition, I maxed the overclock settings out and I've never dropped below an average of 55 fps. I chose the 100r because of the clean look and it's frikin bootiful. The let down is the wiring is a bit tough but what's a build without a challenge? >:] I don't think this is the exact disc drive I used. I found out after the build that I needed a disc drive to install drivers so I scrolled through Amazon until I found a cheap optical drive with decent stats. Ok the first thing I want to say about the fan is it does work. It moves air more than I would expect a little case fan to do. It's decently quiet, the only thing you can hear is the crap ton of air it's moving. The build went pretty smoothly and luckily I didn't zap any thing . I do plan to upgrade this machine in the future. The first upgrade I plan to do is either a SSD or a more RAM. I think the GPU is going to be just fine for a while considering that the human eye can't see faster than 24 fps. The total turned out to be around $600. After moving around fans a bunch I finally got a frosty and somewhat quit setup.
