Description

So at Christmas I got a Sony Vaio laptop and got the free Left 4 Dead 2 that was on steam, and then I see the sales. So I figure hey this PC can play stuff it's $900. Turns out it couldn't so I started researching day after day until the moment I started building. Here I am now with tons of PC games and have this gaming PC.

CPU - This CPU is basically the best price to performance you can get. At $100 - $150 this is the best of the bunch. I'm looking to play games like Titanfall, Watch Dogs, and Battlefield

Motherboard - This Motherboard is rock solid and I have heard nothing but great things from Asus motherboards. It's bios is very easy to navigate and I'm looking into overclocking this CPU to 4.0 Ghz

CPU Cooler - From what I've read this is the best Cooler money can buy for a low budget. It runs well and at stable temps so it works well for me :)

RAM - 8gb of RAM what can I say it was cheap and so I bought it.

Storage - The SSD is mainly for windows and maybe a game or 2 and the extra 2.5 Storage Drives are from older laptops so I decided to save some money and re use them and they work just fine.

Video Card - The 750 ti had just been released around the time i was researching video cards and it's new Maxwell Architecture made me interested and after looking up benchmarks in games like Battlefield 4 at ultra I was hooked to purchase it.

Case - Corsair is from all the recommendations the best case manufacturer out there and for $50 you really cant beat the 200R. Its got nice cable management, ventilation holes, and hard drive bays so it fit perfectly with my build.

Power Supply - You may be wondering why I got so high wattage of a power supply. Well its just so when i upgrade to say an new video card or CPU I'll have more than enough watts to supply to those needs.

Bioshock Infinite Benchmark 720p Max Settings - Average : 73.70 fps

Tomb Raider (2013) 1080p High Settings - Average 69.5 fps

Batman Arkham Origins 720p Max Settings - Average 57 fps

Honestly man I would've opted for the 8 core 8000 series. I know you may not need it now, but its better to have it before you want it.

I know it would have been better but with my budget it just wouldn't fit but I will upgrade to an 8 core in the next year or so.

Nice build how do you like the Asus gpu so far? preformace,noise,temp? i want to go with the Evga one because it doesnt need a 6 pin connector.

It's a really good GPU it can run a lot of games maxed out 1080p like Borderlands or Bioshock Infinite and it runs really well never ran into a problem with it I highly suggest you pick one up and yeah I kinda regret not getting the EVGA one since its a bit better.
