Good entry level gaming PC without breaking the bank. For some reason the price for the graphics card isn't being displayed. I spent around $260 on my RX 480. This brings the price to a little over $900.
Great build man! the only thing is you could have gotten the Ryzen 5 series for a little more and spent the same on the mobo and ram, the stock cooler from the 1600 so far has been amazing in keeping it under 50
Ryzen 5 hadn't come out when I actually bought everything and built this. It was kind of a case of being too excited to actually get everything and get started. If I had just had the patience to wait another couple of weeks that's definitely what I would have gone with. Thanks for the feedback.
I know your feelings bro.
I made the same mistake: if I had waited three more months I would have now a Ryzen 5 1400 instead of a FX-8300 (the budget is max. 700$).
But your build still being one of the best price/performance I have ever seen :)
P.S.: if you read this, can you tell me what keyboard do you have there? And, would you recommend the AiO-Cooler to others?
Sorry but going with an am3+ build was a bad choice, it's a 5+ year old platform now and as SirCarrot points out there's better options that woulda cost you the same kinda price.
Downvoted for telling the truth... stay classy people.
But i mean he probably didnt know when it was comming out, i mean hey i got the 480 without knowing the 500 series was just around the corner!
Well... i guess that's possible, seems unlikely tho imo, ryzen/zen had been mentioned in the usual pc/tech news sites for a couple of years before launch iirc.
Intel still had plenty of better options even taking a lack of knowledge about ryzen into consideration too.
Pretty nice FX build :)
I would have gone with the 480 if I did not see an i5 6600k for $180 at micro center. I got my mobo for $60 and overclocked my cpu to 4.5ghz. I plan on upgrading next year. I will probably give my rx470 to my brother when i do upgrade. But i have no complaints.
Why was the price for the 480 not listed. If you add that it is a $900 build.
