Description

So my girlfriend wanted her own machine because she says that she feels as though she cant use mine. She tells me she will give me the money to build her one. She wanted to keep it under 1k. So this is what I came up with.

I originally was gonna go with an i5 but after doing a bit of research and accepting the fact that this would be more for regular use and only minimal gaming I refrained myself from the pricey stuff. She of course decided on the case and after that I just tried to keep the theme.

Hey, nice build! +1 Also, if your girlfriend needs to upgrade, she can always crossfire those cards. Heard it was damn good performance with two.

How much FPS do you get in games?

I have only played Loadout on it so far and the average was 80fps. Lowest was 75 and the highest reaching 110.

I would use the cpu cooler fan in a push configuration, but nice build!

Yeah, I originally wanted to but with the fans I have in there now I figured pull was more sufficient.

A very nice, solid build for daily use/minimal gaming. I really like the red case. Very nice job.

That is a pretty terrible graphics card to go along with that Proccesor.

What would you have suggested

Radeon R9 270X or Radeon 7870

Both those cards are 100 bucks more than what I got. I figured she did not need a $200 gpu.

It depends on the games. But if you upgrade to an 270X or 7870 I believe when Mantle is released the graphics cards will be able to use it. I'm not so sure about the 7790

Im not too familiar with Radeon and Amd, So why the 7770?
