Finally finished my first build. Let me know what you guys think. Its running like a champ
$100 for an optical drive?
It's a blu-ray writer. I know people that would love these. Not sure if it's worth the price, personally. but To some it's worth.
Different currencies :P
It comes with software which you need to buy anyway, the version without software is around $60
A really nice build and you were able to score a $120 Blu-Ray unit for $80 is a nice get so am I to assume you watch a lot of movies? If not, then I think what others are thinking is that the $60-$65 you could have save here could have gotten you a 128GB SSD or spent more on the GPU and got a 270X, 280 or a GTX 660.
Having a non-modular PSU you did a really nice job keeping the cable out of the way.
With $285 of your $900 being peripherals and OS many would consider this a budget build..... But with quite nice performance.
Just recently built a pretty similar performance pc for a client. By that I mean, 260x and a 760k with the same psu and case. Not the point...I love the spec series cases from corsair. Especially that one. Personally, I would have skipped the blu-ray drive and gotten an ssd. Nice first build man. +1
how's this cpu in games ? did you try to play bf4 or something like that ?
I already have bf4 for ps4 so I'm not gonna buy it again, what would be a good game to test it out on?
what you have ? :D
I only have the witcher. It runs it no problem maxed out but thats a pretty old game. This is my first time trying pc gaming
Whats the best video card for under 150$ right now?
Good build. Only thing I would've changed is your CPU. The FX-8350 has a 4.0GHz overclockable 8-core CPU, for only ~$40 more.
8350 is essentially an OC'd 8320. May or may not be worth the premium.
what are you using it for? if its for gaming, you could've gotten an fx6300 and a 760
Mainly for school and I wanted to try out pc gaming. I plan on getting a ssd and probably another hdd because I've got a lot of music and movies
what up with dat 80 dollar Optical Drive man did no tell you that Asus 19.99 dollar one work just the same. but still a great build m8 its a good first build no lie +1
Lol at the optical drive
