Description

So let me say, this is my first build and I had a budget in mind for that build. I wanted to start off simple and easily upgrade later once I learned more and learned more about overclocking and such.

So this build as you can see was built on a budget and a lot of fun actually. Most of my parts were picked simply on price. I got some great deals around Black Friday and Christmas. That's when I started this build lol. Also Ebay believe it or not was my friend for some of these other than that was mostly newegg and amazon. It also helped a lot when I used the free 1 month membership for both prime and premier. Also My naga and logitech headset I already had that's why they are zero. Also my case was a gift from a friend he won in a Lan Tournament so I cant complain about it to much. Also I got windows 8.1 through school for free which was pretty awesome

Everything was fairly easy actually to set up and put together, cable management was a damn nightmare for this case though and by far the hardest part of the job for me. I spent a good hour to hour and half on that alone. Overall the rig took me about 4 hours to put all together and get windows loaded up on it. Everything else was pretty simple.

I will really only be using this for some games, mostly Diablo 3 and Civilization V, I will also upload more pictures later after I move this week, kinda rushed this whole build so I could do it while im still established.

I pre-loaded all the driver updates and such so it went by super fast. All in all was very happy with this build and what I learned from it. Next step is def going to be me learning how to overclock and fine tunning this rig and also maybe actually buying a decent Case lol.

You should sleeve you front IO cables and route them round the back. Nice build though. :)

Since this is a budget now, upgrade later build, I say good job. For a new GPU I'd go with a mid-tier 8xx or r9 3xxsince it seems that you won't be doing much but playing games.

I just got the FX 8350 and loving it. A bit of an improvement from my 8150. But looking forward to my 2x ASUS R9 280X cards that I am going to custom paint the covers on.

If your keen, I am selling my sapphire 7950 for $270 AUD if your local.

Oh yea I know the gpu is my weakest link but I got it for 75$ new on ebay so I cant complain also that's something easily upgraded. And yes I have been looking at the r9 series. But when I do go to buy a new GPU believe me i will be dropping at least 300-400 usd on it :D

WOW! Fantastic build for the price man. Good on you for buying a good motherboard so you can upgrade easily later. Honestly, the only thing you'd need to upgrade to jump this up to the next tier of computers is a better GPU and maybe a better CPU Cooler to OC that 8320. I'm very impressed!

I can't really tell from the pics, but does that EVO 212 give you enough space to add more RAM later or does it block the far slot?

Yes the first slot has the ram in it, so you would have enough room to fit all 4 slots

For a budget build, this is probably one of the best I've seen yet. Cool!
