Description

My buddy wanted a gaming rig to mainly play sc2 or dota2 but of course I wanted to build him a beast! He gave me a budget of ~$900 so this is what I came up with. So far he is quite satisfied.

The CPU, CPU Cooler, Mobo, SSD, HDD, GPU, PSU, Case, Optical drive are all from Micro Center. The ram and wireless adapter are from amazon. The monitor is from newegg!

Beast is a correct term! This can be arguably the best gaming build at the price of around 900 dollars. The cable management while not the best, is not too bad and manages not to be an eyesore. Have you/your friend tried overclocking the CPU?

we have not tried overclocking it, but I don't think he will need too. He is only playing dota2 and sc2 on it lol

Wow where'd you get those deals on the CPU and GPU? You shaved $100 just off those two components alone!

Tidy up those cables! It makes such a difference.

Your friend is very lucky +1

Microcenter had a deal on the 8320 for $99 and there was an open box for the GPU for $215 with $20MIR

great deal, I hate you ;) What is different about Open box, s something missing or wrong with it?

open box usually is when someone buys a prodcut and opens it but then decides they don't want to use it anymore and return it. It still comes with full manufactor warranty and all parts as well.

Well, I already ordered my GPU and its inside my rig waiting on a CPU and some RAM to come (out of money and need to wait for my birthday)

If there is a microcenter close to you, I highly recommend checking them out.

90% of this build came directly from microcenter! The monitor was from newegg and the ram and wireless adapter from amazon.
