Description

Made this guy for mostly gaming, but also some photo editing on the side. After a week of running things, I have not had any hardware problems, everything here I would recommend. I plan to get a NZXT Hue lighting system for it and possibly some bitfenix red PSU cables/sata cables. Also, I do not have green Krakens, I have the Best Buy exclusive white and black ones.

I overclocked my cpu a little, and I think I'm going to leave it at a max of 4.3 GHz and a 0.100 voltage increase. It shows about a 16% increase in performance.

Nice build. My only gripe is that 4GB 760. You could've gotten a 290 for that price.

Well I already overspent my original video card budget, and it looks like a good 290 card would cost about $300, so that's a tad bit more just not too much more performance. The 4GB 760 is super powerful, I would definitely recommend it.

The 290 can be had for the same price, and it's nearly twice as powerful as the 760. Even a 280X or 285 performs better.

Honestly I didn't even consider an AMD graphics card for this build, I've always heard nvidia is better. If I ever upgrade, I'll definitely consider an AMD option.

That's an awful shame. A lot of people are totally closed to AMD, even though they have hands down the best cards for the money <$300 right now.

I got em for $61 at best buy but theyre listed as $80. For $60, they are fantastic and pretty comfortable. The mic isn't too bad, it works for skype and gaming. If you want good sound and a decently comfortable set of headphones for cheap, get em. If you want a top notch sound quality with a little nicer design and more comfort, spend the extra on some tiamat 7.1's. But for the price these are worth it.
