Description

This is my new gaming build, I needed something that could play games at more that 20 fps so I decided to build my own instead of buying a pre built system. After doing some research I decided on these parts. I wish that I had went with an aftermarket CPU cooler because it gets pretty loud when gaming. The reason that I choose the 8320 instead of an I5 or an 8350 is because it has more cores than the I5 the same amount of cores as the 8320 its just under clocked. Next i went with the MSI 970 gaming because i WANT THE OPTION OF SLI in the future. For a gaming rig these days 8gb of ram is essanial and so is a 1tb Hdd. Next I went with a GTX 950 because it is in my price range and I want the option of sli in the future. For the case I went with the corsair spec 01 I was curious and it looked cool, for the power supply i went with 600W so I have room for upgrading in the future Windows 7 pro was a gift from my aunt who is a IT person at her work and she had a disk and key just lying around. I got my monitor because it was 40% off at bestbuy when I got it and my mouse was a christmas present My Pc cameout very well the cable management is total crap but it works for now I will have to do something about it later please leave comments.

Cores isn't the thing that always matters. Even though the i5 has 4 cores and the fx has 8, the i5 still beats it in all games because each individual core is stronger, which matters more for games.

Yes, Team Blue, we know that. But an i5-4690 by itself will run you a little over $200, and that's just the CPU. A lot of first-time builders don't have money for that, but would still like better gaming than a console.

I don't believe his comment necessitates calling him team blue, keep in mind the description

more cores than the I5 the same amount of cores as the 8320 its just under clocked

He did not state anything about the budget, he simply stated that he went with it due to the higher core count, which is rather insignificant in today's games. g7hsro was simply stating the facts, a skylake build would still get better performance than a 8320 if both had the same graphics card

My budget for this build was low and I did not have the money for an I5 and the 8320 was my next best option

for that budget you got a good amount of computer, nothing at all to be ashamed of

Well, yes, if I was planning to spend $200+ on just the CPU then it makes no sense to go FX-anything; you might as well ante-up for a i5-6600K and board and DDR4 and call it a day. But a first-time builder on a budget (who say, might want a decent size SSD and a 960 card) will still be well served by getting an FX 8320 or 50.

He could get the cheapest i5 and the cheapest motherboard for it and it would equal roughly the same amount that he paid for the AMD bundle while being better.

Good budget build. Only thing I would recommend is instead of a 1 TB drive, get an SSD first. That way you will be good on performance, then purchase a storage drive later when the SSD begins to fill. Also, if you want an aftermarket CPU cooler I suggest the CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo. It's only 25 dollars if I remember correctly and it is a very highly rated aftermarket CPU cooler.

From what I have read the 212 evo will not fit in my case

It is a pretty big cpu cooler.

Long live AMD! +1 and keep Windows 7 for as long as you can.

BTW you probably shouldn't sli something like a 950 just sell it and pick up a 970 or something

Love that case.

In my opinion, one of the best cases for it's price.

Looks like his copy & paste function was too wimpy to pickup all those dots at the ends of the sentences. ;)

I don't have overwatch but i get 70-100 fps in rainbow six and I get 170 in csgo maxed out (I run r6 on medium because of vram)

Can this get a around 60 frames per second on overwatch with high settings on with this pc?

Well... you probably will want to fix that cable management before the Cable Management Police see your picture (and then post an after-pic); here's some ideas on what it might look after you get done. This isn't a bad system though. A GTX960 would have been a better match for the CPU, I think (see here) and the money saved by going with an 8320 / 970 chipset combo might have been better spent on getting a SSD for the OS. Also, save up $30 or so and get a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO or something like it; your ears will thank you (and it will be harder for Mom to hear when you're not doing homework like you should). Happy gaming out there!

I'm glad you used the Wraith Cooler, or so it seems. Also, you have the wrong GPU listed. Here is the right one: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-02gp42956kr You may want to research what games support SLI or Crossfire cause not many games I've seen support it and sometimes the set up in game for CrossFire and SLI is sketchy. So be careful. Sometimes it's best to put the money from SLI towards buying a stronger GPU, then overclock, the pray for no bottleneck. All in all, 1+.

Solid build, I plan on using the same case. Also, looks like there is room for upgrading in the future if you would want that.

i would not use the same case if I were you the cable management options are not great and with an atx mobo you can not access the hole for pc power

Please fix your description and title. The title has no capital letters, and the description is a bunch of run-on sentences with no periods. Incredibly hard to read.

Your complaining about a title without capital letters.

Are you kidding me?

I meant he should capitalize the first letter of each word.

If it is on carpet it is best to have the fan up. Otherwise there is no difference.
