Description

This setup worked flawlessly. Make sure you get good thermal paste for the water cooling system, but everything came together easily and worked on the first try. I play a lot of games (World of Warcraft, Heroes of the Storm, Cities: Skylines to name a few) on max graphics with no problems whatsoever. Very happy with the result.

+1 because its AMD im tired of intel lovers not letting us love our chips and peace and recommend them in peace... your build seems pretty solid and you will be able to play all those games

More power to AMD users, my first chip was a 6300 and I love AMD GPU's because the price is right. The point is op overspent for what they have.

The build I posted was an AMD build..just better part selection.

Well I agree with Firsttimer...... This is just something I threw together real quick...would have been like a ton better then what you built and cheaper. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Cibex/saved/#view=9GXWGX

I will say you gave it a good try on your first go round.

In addition, 8 cores are nice to have, but not a necessity. you also overspent a tiny bit on the motherboard by 20$ or so, , that and 16 gigs of ram are also nice to have, but once again, not a necessity. 8 gigs will do you just fine on gaming, no matter what game you're playin. so you could've easily saved 150 of that dollars, and put it towards a even better gpu. say a 970, which would've really topped off your performance.

The 8350 is a good CPU and I have used it in multiple builds. Asus makes solid MoBos. After that everything is preference and price. I'm not sure why someone feels that because they can build something cheaper, you wasted money. Maybe you don't always need 16 GB of RAM, but that does not me you wasted money by not going with just 8. I spent close to $400 on 2 GB of RAM for my first rig with XP Pro. RAM is cheap. I hardly feel 16 GB is a luxery. Enjoy your build.

A for effort, but you could have spent $1.2k and put together a much stronger, more efficent build.

P.S. Can we see the finished build? Also what psu are you using?

Since I had nothing better to do, took a few minutes and slapped this together. About $100 more but newer, stronger parts (also you don't have the price of your psu listed).

Newer, more powerful GPU, CPU

Faster, more reliable storage. Also cheaper.

Chassis has great air flow and plenty of space for cable management. Could cheapen the build up by going with a cheaper mid tower case, mostly based on preference.

8gb ram because 16gb is unnecessary for a gaming build.

CPU cooler is a thicker 140mm, about equal to/ slightly better than the slimmer h100i.

I don't understand what is wrong with people researching their parts and picking what they want especially if you feel you may want to upgrade later or do bigger things. On one end its spend the extra to get better then on the other end its you over spent on that board and ram because games will never use that much.

Well, the deal I got on the Motherboard/Processor bundle didn't appear on here, so that's a factor. I actually got the two for $225 via MicroCenter.

I don't know how I missed PSU, but its the Corsair CX750m.

This is not that good of a build I made one (including monitors and peripherals) without the peripherals it was 1000 and with it 1300. It had a core i5 4690k (intel is better and releases less heat) and a corsair h100i and a gtx 970 from msi Also a msi gaming motherboard. But that's none of my business *sips tea

While I agree that this build wasted money left and right, it's always a good idea to spend more for a quality mobo.
