Description

Hey, this is my personal build and I am happy with it. After two years of adding and adding I can consider her done. I've had no hardware failures and she can play anything I throw at her. The headset and keyboard are new editions as of Christmas.

Furisoa was made from a pre-built I devoured. The CPU and RAM are all from it, curtisy of ASUS. My GPU is the best 750 TI on the market and I've experimented with overclocking it as I have good temps. I got around 1302 MGhz out of my card. I really didn't need to as in the main games I play (CS:GO, League and Fallout 4), I get around 100-CS:GO, 150 League and 50-70 in Fallout.

My experience with Enermax OSTROG were acceptable. Fan placement was eazy although dust filters are much needed. I've had my Evo for around 4 months, cleaned out dust, and lets just say, it wasn't pretty.

Furiosa is my only and well loved build, I'd love to see what I should upgrade next. Give me some opinions and such in the comments. Thanks!

Quick question: do the 900$ include peripherals? If so, that's still a pretty nice build, considering you have upgraded from a prebuilt system.

If you are looking to upgrade, and go big in the future, I suggest to change the PSU first. It doesn't look like a quality unit, and for any single-gpu setup you can get a nice 650-ish watt one from seasonic or xfx (these are the first two that come to mind for reliability). If you want to check what other PSUs are good you'll want to search for "PSU tier list" on google, that'll show you a post on some forum with a good list of what are good picks and what to avoid.

Then I'd change the CPU/mobo & probably ram. What you'll want to get depends on when you'll do that. Around the end of this year we should see the launch of AMD Zen architecture in the form of new FX processors and, if the expectations hold, we should see a preformance around Haswell's or slightly lower. (Note on this option: in a couple of months we should see the launch of the first AM4 motherboards along with some processors that are a refresh of Carrizo, wich is the current mobile architecture for APUs. If going AMD is your plan, you could get a quality AM4 motherboard with a mid level APU of that new line, so you'll be ready when Zen will launch since it will need an AM4 socket. The only downside is that you're quite locking yourself with AMD and we still don't know for sure the performance of Zen).

The other option would be going intel, either look for a used 4690k and a z97 motherboard or go skylake.

After that you can think of getting a new gpu.

Yes, the 900 does include all peripherals and windows AND a monitor

Not bad considering it was a prebuilt and was worked on over the past 2 years, I just find it funny that your most expensive single part is your keyboard.

Get a new psu asap, that one is trash. Knowing Lepa and how awful most of their units are, I wouldn't even turn this on until you replace it.

Lots of Lepas are decent, but their Yuelin made ones seem to be sucky in at least one way or another.

The only decent ones that I know are of the G series.

I would say that their B series and (possibly if the others are like the P1700-MA) MaxPlatinum series would fit under that category.

That 750 Ti made me a bit sad

I'm sorry but thats really a bad build, you could have built a pc with an i7 with 900$

He said he started from a prebuilt system and added pieces overtime. I think it's acceptable considering he didn't do it all in one go, but I agree that, given the chance, building a pc from scratch with 900$ would get you so much more than this.

You're right, I wish with all my heart that I could take back every cent and redo my system if not for fun. Imma make a hypothetical build and see what I could get (Including periferals and monitor)

I understand, I was 11 at the time and I really had no clue and much less money at the time, round 300-400 dollars

This includes windows and all periferals, If I could take my money back and redo my build with 900$ I would
