Well this build will be used for gaming and some school work on the side. The only heavy game ill probably play is star wars battlefront.

CPU- Everyone knows its the best bang for the buck, and yes i know i should get a cpu cooler but i think i will be fine.

Ram- Basic, 8 gbs

Motherboard- From the time I started looking for parts, I have wanted this board. It looks amazing I really like the red and black scheme i got going.

Storage- I will probably get an ssd later on but the 1tb was a good deal.

GPU- I only play some steam games and league most of the time, so the 750ti should be good enough.

Case- I like that this case has a window on the side and is great for cable management.

PSU- Tiny voices approved.

Monitor- Free

OS- Had one layin around

I know the pictures are blurry lol. Can any one give me a recommendation on a keyboard/mouse combo under $50 that is not the CM storm devastator.

Big thanks to everyone that helped :)

You should be ok to play battlefront on this. Do you care about mechanical switches for the keyboard and mouse combo?

I have a Etekcity Scroll K9500, and I'm loving it so far, although I haven't used it for long. I also have a Redragon Mammoth, and I'm enjoying that too. Both are pretty cheap but feel nice and sturdy.

What made you decide on choosing MSI instead of a different brand (such as EVGA, regular Reforce or Zotac) for your video card?

Jtridin submitter 1 Build 1 point 41 months ago

To be honest, it was the cheapest one at the time with dual fans

i went for the same as MSI has reliable service(DIGICARE) in my country and it is the cheapest in line.

i have planned on a similar build. but mine is fx-6300 Black edition. please explain a bit more about the psu. and would u please tell me about the temp it runs during heavier games. as i live in a tropical country, it is an impt point for me.

what temperature ranges should i consider harmful for my rig?

i plan to use my rig for gaming and movies mainly..

Same annoying guy here again. i was curious as to what would happen if i go for another 1600mhz ram stick to raise my ram to 16 gb. i dont exactly understand what crossfire or sli is. and i'm new to the pc master race.

I have a lower CPU, the AMD FX 4100, and it runs fine on Medium/Low settings tweaking. With the 6300, he should run it fine.

I have not got the game yet but from bench marks, I should be able to get 30 to 45 fps at medium or low settings
