I build this pc for a friend of mine, it's only going to be used for gaming and web browsing. Everything works nice, but the GPU was a ***** to put in. I don't know what want throught my head when I choosed this case :P. Also there is no usable cable manegement space in the back of this case. With taxes and shipping from newegg.ca it was 790$. Oh and also, I've put an extra fan I had left from an other build in the front of the case, so the airflow should be alright.
AMD FX-6300 - A nice cpu for the price. And for gaming it's gonna be perfect. Also we seem to have been lucky with cpu lottery cause it really doesn't heat up under prime95 even with stock cooler
Biostar TA970 atx am3+ - Since he's not gonna overclock I taught this was gonna be alright. The uefi is user friendly but pretty ugly compared to my asus m5 a97 r2.0
Team Xtreem Dark Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 - Was the cheapest ram at 8GB, it run to spec.
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM - Sadly we didn't have the budget for an SSD for this build, but this HDD is gonna be alright for the moment and maybe one day we will uprade it to an SSD
Asus Radeon R9 280 3GB DirectCU II - Yeah, the best part of the build, this massive gpu will run pretty any games at 1080p at high settings. But putting it into the case was nightmare. Because there was not enough space to put it into the mobo while in the case, I had to put the gpu on the mobo and attach the 6+2 power BEFORE PUTTING THE MOBO IN THE CASE. It was quite an acrobatic thing to do.
Antec VSK-4000 ATX Mid Tower - It was so cheap I coudn't resist the temptation... I should have :/
EVGA 500W ATX12V / EPS12V - Really a nice PSU for the price. Apart from beeing non-modular it's a nice PSU
Samsung SH-224DB/RSBS DVD/CD Writer - Not much to say other than it works
Microsoft Windows 8.1 (OEM) (64-bit) - I hope windows 10 is gonna be a free update
Other than the cable manegement and the GPU thing everything went well. The performance of the pc seem to be up to what he wanted and all that for a killer price here in Canada!
