No problems while getting the build together. Great budget build.
For 540 dollars this is excellent! +1
I would have saved money by going for a regular HDD and getting a more reliable PSU, but looks pretty solid
The hybrid drives have some benefits over having an HDD alone or combo'd with an SSD
The PSU is fine. The CX series isnt that bad like people think.
Its the wattage if that psu in this case it's barely enough.
Gtx 960 FTW !! :D Nice +1
Are you just saying FTW as in For The Win!! Or are you saying it as the model name? Cause that gtx 960 is the SSC version.
i think he means for the win since maybe he has one too :0
hurray for pcie x1 that you can use even when you have a gpu! 2-slot wide is such a normality, they should bring back the x1 on the cpu-side so we can actually use that useful slot.
Great CPU for the price. It performs pretty well for 126 bucks :)https://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.php?cpu=AMD+FX-8320E+Eight-Core
Not bad. However, I wouldn't trust a CX PSU for a gaming machine. Also curious why you opted for one 8 GB RAM module instead of two 4 GB modules; having two modules would give you dual-channel operation. Are you planning to upgrade to 16 GB?
I propose the following machine instead: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/BFfdsY
I do plan on upgrading to 16 GB.
Expect that PSU to fail within a month.
Thanks for the info. Will do.
I got this GPU on black friday for $170. The lowest i saw the 380 go down to was $210.
