Description

Hey guys, This is my current build for gaming at 1080. The parts on the Side listed as $0.00 are brand new upgrades I went with going for a new case and PSU first because they were both about 5ish years old. The old case was a Antec 300 although it had great airflow the cable management was terrible. I really liked the layout of the Corsair 500r I was looking for a case with good airflow and some built in cable management while still being around the $100 mark. My old Corsiar TX850 was a great PSU but I wanted something modular this time around. When selecting my first ever SSD I went with the Samsung 850-Evo due to all of the great reviews I read and had couple of friends that talking them up over the last couple of years.

So these were going to be all of my upgrades for the next 6-8 months but now I have a younger kid that wants a computer for casual gaming so ill be selling my MB+ CPU and whatever he wants to save him as much as possible and I get to build myself a new build!

The parts list below is what my build will consist of once I am finished, to keep the cost down I am going to be keeping my 7950 for the time being and will be buying a 750ti for my "clients build" unless you guys twist my arm for a slight upgrade for myself, I was pricing out a R290 but I am still unsure if i want to drop another $300

Nice, how is the 7950 handling current games?

pretty well, The newest game I have is Evolve and it plays it on high ~60fps @ 1080
