Description

   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 This cooler has been modified over time so pretty much all negative reviews are outdated.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.

Amazing budget build. The fact that with a monitor and peripherals, the price is $600 is amazing. Great cable management, too. +1

Great build. It looks clean and organized. The only thing that I don't like here is the CPU cooler, it looks ugly but that's just me. +1

I haven't played these titles but judging by what I've seen on this graphics card gta should run around 60fps and CSGO over 100

asus 750 ti is great! i have the exact card in an old cmstacker case that allows for open airflow and this card is super quiet even during gaming. super good deal for the money

I'd like to build pretta much something in this price range maybe a little bit more... now i dont really know all that much about pc parts jet but im concerned that the 2GB VRAM will be a bottlekneck...

No, graphic performance doesn't neccesarily depend on VRAM these days. There's a lot more things that factor in to it like frequencies and over all reviews. Besides most games aren't even demanding of VRAM in the first place. The absolut max you'll need in gaming is probably 4GB of GDDR5. I haven't evperienced any bottle necks with this graphics card what so ever.

I can hear it through my headphones, probably getting a corsair fan for the back so it's not so noisy.

Actualy it's the radiator fan, I got a bad egg. The cooler master is just a little noisy and there's also a silent version of it.
