Description

I had a customer come into my work looking to get a new PC for gaming, other entertainment, web browsing, and school for around $500-$600. He was on a budget and I haven't done a AMD build before and I wanted to mess around with the new GTX 750 so this became a great opportunity for both of us. Its a very simple rig without a lot of bells and whistles, but compared to the pre-builds at frys it kills. I know I could have gotten much better parts for a cheaper price but the customer wanted his PC built that day so we were stuck with Frys Electronics. Let me know what you guys think!

You help build customers computers and never built a AMD build? Where have you been? Ever since the core series was released it was actually better to build with AMD.

for budget maybe, but most people who ask someone else to build a computer for them tend to have a bit of money to throw around, so it doesn't surprise me that he has only built with intel before.

Really good for budget! Might have gone for a gtx 660 though.

Dat PSU. It is quite the build. I would have gone with a single stick cheaper RAM, and a better power supply. I would have also gotten the HDD at 7200 RPM. And then cheap out a little on the motherboard and get the 750 ti.

A single stack ram is never preferred. More expensive motherboards mean nothing in terms of performance if you don't overclock, so that wouldn't be a factor here. But I'd agree, I personally would have went for the 750ti card.

Great little light gamer you built there and far cheaper than a store bought model.

Better PSU, maybe. But I wouldn't have went any cheaper on the motherboard (cheaper boards would probably drop down to 2x RAM slots and less sata, PCIe etc. slots). And losing dual channel by saving a tiny amount on RAM seems counter-productive.
