Description

I built this because I sold my previous PC to some sucker. I was not the one who put this together as I didn't trust myself with stuff that costs $500 so I had my brother build it. I play games and do other things like light game development. Fallout 4 stutters a lot,because I am cheap and only bought 4GB of RAM, but other than that it runs at around 30FPS (I think). I will eventually buy more ram, if the prices are actually low for once, and get another power supply.

Part Reviews

CPU Cooler

It keeps my processor cool enough and is quiet

Memory

(This probably isn't the one I bought) I am not a fan of the color scheme but I didn't get it for that

Video Card

The green light is annoying to look at but it runs cool(atleast I think it does) and performs well

Case

The included fans are kind of loud but it looks nice

Power Supply

It is cheap and EVGA

Mouse

I originally found the mouse kind of small but I grew used to it also it looks pretty

Nice budget build. To be honest I would have prioritize a better CPU and GPU over the mouse and keyboard (that's me). AMD needs some love and it is receiving it with Ryzen, but I would had chosen a intel chip in this one the Pentium G4560 is a great budget chip and a RX 470 That would improve it by a lot.

Parts with G4560 and RX470 and even here you could cut more corners like using the intel stock cooling and look for another case. or pick a 1050ti or RX460.

But at the end it all depend on you, if you like your build and are happy with it is great. Also, if prices where you lived are higher or different that the reflected one it it more understandable.

PD. but if more of this things you already had it, there wasn't much that could have been done. Apologize if it offend you, but these are some advise in case you upgrade.

I have had some of the parts for over a year, the keyboard, case, cpu cooler, SSD, and mouse. I definitely would have done the build differently if I bought the parts new.

Make sense. I was thinking that could had been that case for it. but overall nice setup, better than what I had with my laptop before I started getting into PCs. If you plan to upgrade on the future look forward Ryzen 5 it seem that could be really good. (4C 8T or 6C 12T). Also the refresh of the amd polaris line up 570 or 580, even Vega if they released it this year. Well hope you the best with your little devil.

Once the prices drop or when my brother decides to sell me the rest of his RAM.

If you use eBay, check it out for a cheap fx 8320 , extra ram, and gpu :) I like the amd love though! Nice build

Don't be intimidated by building it yourself! It's really not difficult nowadays, and its also relatively hard to break pieces, but being relatively careful avoids that.

One of my favorite cases. I have used it in a few builds. I am a fallout fan as well.. If you are going to wanna get less stutter from the game download an Optimization Texture pack from nexus and give that motherboard at least a fx 6300 or 8300. An 8350 if you can though.... +1 for nzxt and fallout!!

Are there texture optimization packs that are not several gigabytes?

When my computer was sub par I found one that you chose which pack to download based on the speed of your pc. I'll look for a link or title.

The 7770 is a nice GPU. I think it can run GTA V without hiccups!

You should definitely upgrade your CPU, GPU, and RAM, but other than that, great build.

I already had the mouse and the processor in the other PC was an AMD 5350

I bought the case, CPU cooler, keyboard, and mouse over a year ago because I wanted to do something else but I never did it. I bought the RAM off of my brother because it was cheap enough and I didn't want to wait for shipping. The CPU and GPU were used or I would have bought different ones. What is wrong with Razer products?

lol,I told him about the same about the CPU and GPU (First comment)

OP I just want to say, that ask your brother to move the CPU connector to the back to go to the top for more clean cable management and try to raise a bit the 24 pin too. just some cable management. IF you like your GPU where it is is fine but first line, I feel it would be better.
