Description

This build will be mostly used for gaming, but I might eventually try some light Photoshop. The Shinobi case was great to work with, especially because of the tool-free installation for drives. However, the SSD was a little irritating because the instructions tell you to put it in from the inside, when you really need to take off the front panel, tear off a piece of metal, and then insert it through the front. That led to taking out and putting back in the motherboard a couple times lol. The software went perfectly, and all that happened was I needed to take out the disc so it would stop booting from it and boot from the solid state drive. The SSD is a Samsung EVO 120 GB, which is used for my OS to boot faster, and a few games with long load times. The speakers are Bose and my mom never used them for her ancient Vista pc, (dual-core AMD lmao). On my Acer laptop, I could only get about 10-15 frames for DayZ and it was barely playable. On this build, I get a pretty stable 30-35 fps in cities, and up in the 40's out in the wilderness. The only actual complaint is how loud this thing is. Maybe I'm just used to laptops, but it's really loud while gaming and gets pretty hot on the top. Could be because I just used the standard CPU cooler. Really happy with how it turned out though, besides the shipping time of my PSU from ncixus.com I ordered it in the same order as several other parts. Two days after the other parts got here, I still didn't get the power supply, so I called. This Indian dude told me it shipped from another warehouse and should be there in 4-5 days. It took eight. Still, everything turned out fine in the long run and I got my pc set up before school starts :)

Why GTX 660? You could get a good 280 for the price.

I rock an AMD FX-8320 and its also loud, mine is due to the CPU fan. I would be willing to bet yours is due to the same reason, does it tend to get loud after its been running at load for a few moments? It maybe advisable to replace/upgrade the CPU fan and heatsink, I have also read this is a common thing among FX CPU's.
