Description

I use the machine for a fair amount of gaming whenever I find the time for it but nothing too insane. I finally saved up enough money to piece together this build over the past year and I can't complain at all! I saved a ton of money looking for sales and for used monitors/peripherals. I haven't had even a half decent computer since my cousin built one for me when I was 10 years old (11 years ago) so this was how I followed that up!

I'm currently using my 3rd monitor to have a dual displays setup with my laptop. I went with the three 500 GB WD hard drive's to set up RAID 5 with a hot spare coming within the next few months or so. I also had the memory just laying around so I'll be buying faster memory in a few months as well.

28 Leaderboard with an FX-6350? I think I'll spend the extra $10 to upgrade from the 6300!

SAVE money with the FX-6350 actually, they'renow cheaper than the 6300. In fact Newegg has them for 90 bucks! 6350 seems to come with a CPU cooler, 6300 add your own. Plus Better rating (PassMark) unless you're trying to save power, takes 30 watts more. Not sure if the included CPU cooler on the 6350 is as good as the one on the 6300, which is a shame, as it runs hotter and uses more power.

Raid 5

Yeah, but that's still $30 more per drive. $30 x 3 = $90 I couldn't have used for my GPU.

i meant as in get 1 94 dollar 2 TB drive instead of 3 500gb drives for double the price. You could have gotten better parts with the extra 90 bucks.

Well I'm running RAID 0 so I don't have to worry about 1 single drive crashing and losing all of my data. I like to have 3 so that if 1 of them crashes, I only lost a little bit of my data.

does the stock cpu cooler work well?

Yeah, as long as you aren't overclocking it at all, it shouldn't be an issue. I've been playing the BF4 Beta since October 1 with its CPU issues (CPU is consistently above 85% while playing) and it has yet to hit 50 degrees.
