was able to play most of the recent games on 1080p . very happy to put everything on the price as low as this
The internal pics?! the description, the use for this machine! so many questions unanswered!
It sounds like you need to be spoon fed ;) With the limited description, and title that is given while using my head.. I can come to the conclusion that it is mainly a budget build for gaming.. However Internal pics would be nice.. :D
Very nice, however some more pictures would be wonderful :D
Nice build, but more pictures, and a good description will give us a better insight.
Nice prices on everything. Especially consider your total includes a monitor. Seeing some pics of the inside would be nice though.
Nice build for the price, though it lacks a description worthy of the effort put into it. No real pics or info. Also, do you intend to upgrade in the future? If so, then how? Come on, give us something to see.
Yeah, not much to go one... a parts list is about all we have...
On this site if you post a build, even a great one, with little to no description and no internal pics, you WILL get downvoted. For future reference.
If I were you I would drop down to a 4130 and get a better GPU
The HD 7850 needs at least a 500w PSU. The 430w PSU is not enough. You will experience shutdowns when playing high loaded games and GPU benchmarks.
The 7850 has a TDP of 130W. He'll be fine.
He'll be fine, but personally I would go on the safe side with 500w.
If you look at the actual parts list. It shows a wattage of 324 watts. That's not even within 100 watts of how much power the psu can supply.
The wattage there shows the minimum for each part added together, it will always use much more than that.
And how do you know that?
Mine says 380w. My graphics card reccomends at least 500w. I guarantee you that it's using more than 380w.
For OP's build, if you click the wattage number it gives the following info:
AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor 11W - 95W
MSI 970A-G46 ATX AM3+ Motherboard 17W - 70W
Crucial Ballistix 8GB (1 x 8GB) Memory 9W - 9W
Western Digital RE3 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM 4W - 20W
XFX Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card 32W - 130W
Total: 73W - 324W
Not much behind that guarantee. Prove it!
They are also not assuming you have a decent PSU. If you get a low tier PSU you will most definitely need 500w, if not better (aside from system explosions). If you are doing Bronze or better, with a decent PSU brand, your 380W system will be fine with 500W unless OC-ing.
I always thought it was the max, can you verify this?
Edit: I think it's estimating on the high end actually. If you click the part list, it shows the estimate on the upper right corner. If you click that number, it gives you a breakdown, and each part has a range. The total it shows is based on the high end of the range.
It is the max.
I'm almost positive it's on the higher side, not the lower. 100w CPU and 130W GPU is 230w at max load. 324w would be everything running at max load, which almost never happens.
I'm using one with a 430W and it's fine. (I didn't plan it this way, but I bought my PSU before I decided to use my machine for gaming and ended up adding the video card later.) You just have to make sure you don't have a lot of other components that require a lot of power too. PC Part Picker is nice in that it calculates your system's total power draw (at max load, I think). OP's system is a little over 320w. Yes, that's cutting it close (you don't want to take it right up to the PUS's max), but it's still far enough below that it should be fine. Will definitely need to upgrade the PSU though if adding a more powerful GPU or additional power-demanding components.
