Description

This is my gaming/light editing rig. Bought most of this at Micro Center.

Got the CPU for 129.99 at Micro center which was a steal and its just suits me fine. I do plan on overclocking to 8350 speeds.

Most of you probably are going to hate the case but I got this for 20 bucks and tbh it will be all I ever need and the fan works great that came with it. The only problem I have with it are the pegs at the bottom so those will be replaced soon.

Now most of you are probably thinking, "Wait if this is a gaming rig why the heck do you have a 5450!?". Answer: Didn't have enough money to buy a really good graphics card so this is just a place holder till next week as it was cheap. Honestly though this is a nice card at the price and even though I'm at the low or medium settings at low res I do get high fps.

Cable Management isn't the best but its the best I could do.

Thx for looking at it!

Old Total Price - Around $600 - $640 New Total Price - Around $700 - $750

UPDATE #1: Pictures were added.

UPDATE #2: Switched the placement of the CPU Fan (Added Pic) . Runs cooler than it did before. Thx Kdot and pholtz!

UPDATE #3: I finally got a graphics card and its the GTX 750ti from PNY and I love it. Runs all my games at near high settings and in 1080p. Though now that I look at the motherboard, it is a bit overkill since 750ti isn't SLI but hey I love that motherboard too.

UPDATE #4: Found an old Dell Monitor wih usb ports. Works great and I love using two monitors. Added some new pics along with some of the old ones.

The mobo is nice but cost a bit too much and the graphics card needs to be a bit better

Maybe but I got 40 bucks off when I bought it with the CPU so its a win for me. As I said in the description the HD 5450 is only a placeholder right now.

Yes! I remember I saw the 8320 for $99 at the Philly MicroCenter...at the time I was in the middle of building my pc I almost RMA'd everything and started over...thank you for making my dreams come true.

One more thing. If the fan on your hyper 212 is pushing air though the radiator towards the top of the case, where is that warm exhaust going? It doesn't look like your case has any mesh on the top panel but it's hard to tell.
