Description

Haven't done any major testing yet.. But will do soon =)

I had a client since i build computers for a local shop and i now made my own shop aside from working there.

The client wanted a computer for gaming and school work.

I was looking for good parts with tons of reviews and i got lucky cause on newegg all of these parts were 10-30$ off + i do the rebates so in total the price came out 400$ which is a awesome deal for this computer

AMD Fx-6300: My thoughts on this, best bang for the buck cpu got this on sale for 100$ hes not going to be overclocking so stock cooler will do fine. has 6 cores 3.5Ghz of the back. No issues with this cpu.

ASUS M5A78L-M/USB: one of the cheapest boards out. Does everything it needs to do. Came with 2 sata cables which is enough for this computer. Issues: IO shield sucks only 2 fan headers ( 1 is the cpu fan header) and it doesn't have any 3.0 usb ports on board but for this price range i knew it wouldn't wouldn't boot windows from my usb so i had to take out the dvd drive from my main build

A-Data XPG v1 8gb: can't say that much just its ram and has nice heats and will do the job 8gb is good enough for gaming

Blue HDD 320GB: i found this brand new at staples for 20$ so I grabbed it within a second. Short on storage but it will do, and if he wants to upgrade he can in the future

EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB Superclocked: Best bang for the buck, doesn't require any PCIE connector and small form factor ( it got delayed but it will fit in case)

Rosewill FBM-01 MicroATX Mini Tower: for 26$ great price. This case is actually nice, its a small micro atx tower. Only issues is cable management but i think i did a great job. It was hard installing the motherboard since you have to angle it cause the hdd bay is in the way. only able to stick 2 hard drives but it has two 5.25" bays so you can get one of those things that allows you to install a 3'5 drive if needed. the glossy front attracts fingerprints crazy. I will add more photos showing the case later =)

EVGA 100-W1-0430-KR 430W: wow for 20$ with the rebate, can't get better than this. a trusted brand and 430w which is plenty for this build. The cables are short which is perfect for this build. has a 6+2 PCIE pin so can upgrade graphics card.

Overall I think the client will be pleased when he picks up his new computer. I was attempting to record be building it using one hand. So I will upload that video later. I took some screenshots showing the cable management.

okay I will take one later it came out nice but had a bunch of extra cables so i just stuck them in the 5'25 bays i can probably try to fix that mess of cables and maybe be able to use 1 out of the 2 bays. ill experiment later ;) but you can route small cables in from the back panel to the front of the case. i manage to route the sata power cables through without any bulging side panel.

Probably but I have window's 7 on a cd from like 2 years ago so I always used that. But windows 10 preview is an option if you want

Hello awesome build! I am kind of doing the same thing. I have the same Graphics Card/CPU ... Anyways, I have no idea how to build a PC. Is this a relatively easy build? I probably will have to research and have a friend help me. Also, could you post that video? Thanks :DD

The build was easy but the case is a struggle building in. I got the video ready but it wasn't really a how to build cause I was holding my phone and using as a camera so building with one hand. It took me an hour because trying to figure cable management.

Hello I considered building my first build soon like this. Even though it's probably a dumb question how would I install the motherboard drivers once it's all put together.

  • 57 months ago

i tried using a usb for windows and it didn't work so i bought external dvd driver the motherboard includes a cd with the drivers but what i did was i used an external dvd drive ( about 20-30$) and installed the Ethernet port using the cd then I just went to msi and downloaded the latest drivers. conclusion: get a internal dvd drive or a usb dvd drive

Ok thank you and also I was wondering if since the cable management was bad if I could use all those parts in a diffrent case

  • 57 months ago
  • 1 point

yeah you can use them =) the cable management isn't that bad i would just pick up some twist ties and those hooks i used http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005MN2QHK?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00

Ok thanks that might work also if I got a diffrent case do you this one would be good? http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811517036&ignorebbr=1

  • 57 months ago

it will work but for that price of 40$ can probably get a better case i personally would go for either of these within 40$ 1)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147159 2)http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146102 since that motherboard doesn't have any usb 3.0 ports other than the back 2 those cases i would recommend within 40$

Yeah I thought of getting like a 120gb ssd for windows boot and small applications and the 320gb could be for some games and work stuff but the client will be happy He can upgrade it if He wants :)
