What was your budget? Because you should have got some 8gb mem modules. Just my 2 cents. But otherwise, great build!

$1000, and I was really new to the whole process. lol. I learned a lot from the experience though.

a 670 for "light gaming"?

Arekesu submitter 1 Build 2 points 55 months ago

Woops, ended up going with a radeon 7850, just forgot to update it on here. And by "light gaming" I just meant that I only use my pc for games like league of legends, Guild Wars 2, and games on steam that I could pick up cheap. I mainly game on my PS3.

Oh, but for light gaming i use my laptop with HD4000 and get 45fps+ on arma 2 at normal settings

The PSU scares me a bit. You should've went with the xfx model which would've been more reliable. Nonetheless, if it works and there's no problem then it's fine. Other than that, 8gb of ram would've helped out. Just going to leave this here: With a 7850 League of Legends says my fps is 120-150. Having those numbers are funny.

or corsair, antec, pc power and cooling etc.

I wouldn't call a 7850 light gaming. Maybe a 7770

Interesting to see the FX-4300 in this build, however, will you overclock it? If so, please post results

Those cases look nice but I had one come in to work and found broken fan blades and cracks in the plastic part of the case. The broken fan blades caused the early death of a first gen i7 that kind of scared me for life :/.

If anything, keep an eye on those fans or replace them with a higher quality brand like corsair or antec.

I did a similar build in the past few weeks. First time in years. http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/b/ANW I went with 8gb on the RAM at 1866mhz and a single SSD instead of an HDD. I also went for a cheaper case. I'm trying to get my RAM up to the advertised 1866mhz, then was considering an overclock but I'm running Skyrim on Ultra settings so I'm pretty happy. Tempted to buy Far Cry 3 to see how it goes then. Has everything been running smooth on only the 4gb of RAM?

This could have been built so much better with that much money

Killnoor 1 point 48 months ago

How so? I have $2,000 to play with. Heavy on gaming/quietness/speed is what I want. Can you help?

I f you have some extra money get a 120 GB SSD to install your OS and games. the difference in the time it take to boot up your computer and open games will amaze you.... nice build too.
