Description

This is my first gaming PC build ever, I bought all of these parts at Micro Center. This build can handle any games I throw at it, such as HITMAN, Rocket League, War Thunder, The Division, Sid Meier's Civilization V, and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on medium to high settings. So far, this build is serving me very well, it is very quick and fast, and never crashes or freezes.

Absolutely great build! +1 for the team RED awesomeness! I will agree the GPU was rather pricey though. I have the R9 380 4GB version and I paid $195

I think you overpaid for that PSU and graphics card. You can get an r9 380 or a gtx 960 for around that price. I think microcenter does price matching so you could've gotten that PSU for 45 bucks. Other than that, nice build.

I agree on the PSU being pricey, but if the 4GB variant of the R7 370 was purchased several months ago, I suppose the price isn't too bad. Still over-payed IMO though. The build is still pretty decent. I would have gotten the R9 380 and an aftermarket CPU cooler, but that's just preference. Maybe 4GB of VRAM was more valuable and the case is in another room. Still gets a +1 from me.

Meh, that card isn't powerful enough to utilize 4gb but oh well.

No, but it can pretty easily utilize more than 2GB VRAM (I think 4 GB utilization would be possible under the right, but uncommon, circumstance.) and price was the concern. I was addressing why the price listed could have made sense for what was purchased; not value and performance.

Yeah, I could of gotten a better graphics card, but hey, I can always upgrade.

Built a very similar system all from micro center (same CPU, memory, PSU). The thing to remember with Microcenter is they do a lot of rebate deals so ZKZCV1 may not have paid $69.99 for his PSU.

Also I went with a 2T hybrid drive. Seems to offer good performance with a lot of storage. I get it that it's no SSD, but for a budget build works well.

I was wondering what you did with the 2 motherboard standoffs that were included. I really don't know if I need them or not.

The sale of those keys violate Microsoft ToS, and the keys may be unexpectedly disabled. Recommending, suggesting, advising, encouraging, hinting, or in any way implying these keys as a solution or option is not allowed on this site.

I know exactly what's being done. They are grey market keys that violate Microsoft ToS, and they can be unexpectedly disabled. YouTubers and computer enthusiasts using them does not change that. We don't allow the recommendation (etc) of them here.
