Came out much cheaper then what PC part picker has listed because of sales and I'm very happy. Makes for nice gaming @ 1080p after OCing. Everything is playable at max.
How much did it actually come out to be?
About 630 total after deals from Microcenter and regular sales.
I think this build is fantastic for the price range. The hdd could have been a western digital or seagate, but really I dont think you will run into any problems with it. Awesome build.
Good build. 7850 is a perfect graphics card on a budget.
great build. love the fx6300 and 7850 mix. good combination!
So how easy is it to install that cooler? I have the same CPU and I'm planning on installing it in the summer and overclocking by a .5-.6 ghz increase.
Also, did you have to replace the backplate when you were installing the CPU cooler for an AM3+ socket?
that was the coolest case I have ever seen!!!
hey does the motherboard has UEFI BIOS?
I'm afraid not. It has "hybrid UEFI" which means it has the main benefits of UEFI without an actual UEFI
How is the cooler holding up I've seen ones where the black ceramic caoting flakes of after time,
is that the case here??
That Toshiba hard drive isn't the best choice, but I'd assume you got a good deal on it. I think you can get a WD Caviar blue for about the same price, and WD has good reliability. Anyway, nice build, and great for the price.
What do you consider "playable?"
He probably means a minimum of around 20-25fps
I float at around 30 after overclocking but yeah I'd say 20-25 is playable for me.
Really? I would have thought a 7850 could put out more frames than that...
Well modded skyrim and Far Cry turned down only a little bit. Get around 30 but most games get ~40 on max 7850 is a powerhouse overclocker.
Yeah, the entire 7800 series are =D. My 7870 Ghz has an ASIC quality of 83.6 which means it should overclock really well whenever I decide to overclock it. Maybe even 1300 Mhz...
I would have went for either an Antec, Corsair, or Seasonic PSU and a Seagate or WD HDD but other then that it looks pretty good.
Personally I would have tried to match colors on parts, but thats just cause I'm OCD
Well the Capstone series is a good superflower unit and for the sale price of 70 bucks I picked it up at it was unbeatable.
The Superflower-built Rosewill units are easily on par with high end units from Corsair, Seasonic, etc.
You're not "OCD" either.
