Description

This PC started out as my budget build using only the APU(Check out "My First Build" in my profile). I pretty much only played Rust and Face-Punch screwed around and the game didn't run for the longest time so there wasn't really much of a reason to upgrade. well with the new update it runs so...here are the results. I'm not done with it yet. I want to finish sleeving the cables white to finish the white theme. plus I am going to buy more of the fractal design fans since they are white and they are surprisingly quiet. The graphics card is my first actual dedicated GPU. it seemed to fit my needs pretty well and so far has amazed me for the price I payed. The SSD was also a first for me. Even for its cheap price its still surprisingly fast. Before my rust load time was 3 minutes and 47 seconds. With the SSD it cut that time down to 1 minute 55 seconds. So far I absolutely love this build. Any questions feel free to comment.

My pc costs $300 more than yours, which looks 10 times better than mine. TnT

I'm no expert with building pcs, but +1 for neat cable managing and use of an amd apu in 2016. Happy gaming!

any plans to evolve this build further?

the 860K or the 880K is a good CPU to pick up and will let you play game like GTA 5

Probably better storage devices. I want a fast 1tb and a bigger and faster ssd.

and for the CPU, the Athlon x4 880K is a great upgrade

why? this whole setup could run off of a 250 watt psu to be honest. that power supply is more then enough.

It's not the wattage, it's the reliability, you don't skimp on the PSU when you can.

its an 80+ bronze psu its not gonna blow up. i have a friend who is using a bestec 250 watt psu with a amd x2 64 5200+ and an hd 6670. that system at its highest pulls 170 watts from the wall and we have been doing that for about 4 months now and he does use that system and put it under 100 percent load constantly (well he plays skyrim on it, but it does take everything that computer has). its running fine. the power supply in this build is just fine and considering what is in it he has no worries.

I suggest when you upgrade your cpu, upgrade it to an Athlon x4 860k. I also suggest you have bought a 2gb zotac gtx 750 ti, as it costs the same, but performs much better than the gt 740 (according to game debate). Also, if you want to upgrade your gpu, I suggest you upgrade to an rx 480, as that will allow you to run almost every game in maxed out in 1080p and 1440p with around 40-60fps.

Also, thats an amazing looking build, I really like the case and cable management. +1000000

I wouldn't recommend this case for a price over $40. Kind of flimsy and the side window came with a blemish in it that won't come out

I see. At least the case looks beautiful

How is the PSU working for you? I'm thinking about getting it bc its semi modular and cheap but I've seen some bad reviews.
