Description

This build is suppose to be an upgrade to my little brother's build. His old build was Disastro, a $450 build which was a disaster. This was a major upgrade for just a little over the price of his old build. I was astound to see the performance this build showed. It ran all his games max or high graphics in 1080p. This is including games like BF4, CS:GO, LoL, WoW, and Smite. This build is the ULTIMATE CONSOLE KILLER!

Also, the sticker we got came with our used motherboard on my other build. Pretty cool to have it!

Also sorry for the poor image quality. My old camera that shoots 720p 30fps finally gave out. Im hoping to buy a new camera soon. I've been really wanting a new one for a VERY LONG TIME!

Part Reviews

CPU

Amazing processor. Not great compared to an i5, but is perfect for budget gaming!

Storage

Fast, Cheap, and Reliable.

Storage

I got a little sluggy one. Luckily its my second drive so no problems. Gets pretty hot too and is loud compared to a WD Blue.

Video Card

This thing blew my mind for the price. Just a shy off compared to the 950, but is still a great card.

Case

This is not the case I used, but is exactly the same except for the color. I gotten the snow edition. Great case, little hard to manage the cables in.

Power Supply

Never let me down.

Operating System

Get. Windows. Ten.

Wireless Network Adapter

Great blue-tooth and WiFi card. Very weird to position. Don't use this card if you have over 200 mb/s download. Other than that its perfect.

Title = Clone

Sticker = Stormtrooper

Illuminati confirmed?

Jokes aside, an awesome build. Love the case and how clean it looks. I'm a huge star wars fan too. Have a +1 :D

+1 For overall excellent budget parts choice. My only advice is replace the godawful stock fan of the FX. I didn't even go a day before upgrading my 8350's fan to a evo 212, the stock fan sounds like a blender.

Not familiar with the GPU, but I know for a fact that jump from integrated GPU to discrete is a "wow" moment. When I went from my old crappy laptop with an A8 APU to a GTX 960 I was blown away. Now I can never go back XD I am addicted to the POWER!

8350 fan and 6300 fans noise levels are no where similar. I had an AMD 8320 and it was like a Attack chopper inside my house. This stock cooler is a little louder than a stock Intel cooler.

My 6200 fan nearly split my eardrums, can't imagine what the 8350 is like.

It's the same.

AMD had their 95w coolers and then their 125w coolers, the 125 is beefier, has a heatpipe and a much, much more aggressive fan profile.

For that power supply, the cable management was absolutely gorgeous. +1

This is beautiful. I love how you matched all the colors together, and how you were able to keep it at a budget.

I purchased the same case for my build. What do you think of it? Personally i am going to future proof my case with a full tower. I dont get good air flow in this one.

Good looking build made. You made some good part choices for the price range. The only thing that is driving my OCD nuts is that case. It has a stamp for 2x USB3.0 ports and one of them is plugged, they did they stamp it out and put the plug in there. BAH!!! lol

Good looking build mate.

The pics are awesome! I prefer $1000 camera - $500 build instead of $30 camera - $5000 build :P

Nice job picking parts but you should have thrown the ssd aside and opted for a r9 380. Still +1 nice job.

meh, r7 370 runs my games just fine. I love and need the speeds of the ssd too.

Nice looking build, but this is a 600 dollar computer. Not 500. Windows is not free

Watch out with that PSU as it is pretty unreliable Other than that amazing build +1

  • 42 months ago

What?

Pretty unreliable is a diablotek. This PSU is decent, and will still work fine. It definitely isn't the best, but calling it unreliable is way off.

I don't know the 80+ certification

I've used 2 of them before (and the 500W version) - they definitely are reliable. Obviously there are better ones out there, but at least it's not Diablotek or Logysis.
