Description

Hello guys i just wanted to show you my first computer build! About 10+ years ago i had someone help me build one and it cost about $3000 and lasted me about 3 years i wont spend that much ever again! Then my 1200 dollar asus from about 4 years ago met the doom of my new years party sooo.

After many hours of parts research and shooting for a $500-600 budget this is what i ended up with. Doing the rest should be easy, the build is what i was afraid of. The primary use is intended for gaming so i hope it speeds things up a bit from my HP Pavilion A450. Hoping for mid to high settings... hell even playable works for me!

Not exactly sure how the overclocking works but i may try that if things are not fast enough. Added 2 fans in with the $20 newegg promo gift card why not!

**I will give this build a performance review as soon as i get it going.

Happy building, Dave

That MSI 7850 overclocks really well!

Nice budget friendly build, you should be very happy with it once you start gaming. I think the 2gb 7850 is a great mid level card. If i were you i would check out the asus vs247 monitor...its in your price range and its the one im planning on getting.

Nice monitor,now the big hot debate over ips and non ips =) i would think 2ms vs 8ms is not even noticeable.

im possibly ordering that asus vs247 monitor tonight or in morning, 150 is my max price range on a monitor and after lots of researching this one looks really good! :D

Very good choice of components, Dave! I also built a system with the AMD FX-6300 CPU and 8GB of RAM. If you ever want to really speed up that system without much expense, put in a 120GB SSD for the boot drive.

This seems strange to me, i dont have windows yet but somehow i am able to get on the internet using this WIKI cd?

Big score on the monitor issue though, talked to my father and he apparently had a http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sansui-SLED2490-24-720p-60Hz-Class-LED-LCD-HDTV/22027103#Specifications sitting in his closet? Only thing i cant figure out is why the speakers wont work on it. Have it hooked up with HDMI and also tried the regular headphone jack hook ups.

Thanks, dave

what do you think of the mobo? I've been deciding between that and the Asus M5A97 le
