Description

This is primarily used for csgo, maybe used to play other games on. The computer runs great and is not loud. The only problem is that the fans in the case (there are two) have 3 pin connections not four so i bought an insignia fan to replace them which keeps the computer very cool.

Love it, don't worry about cables you can fix them later on.

And you didn't do an AMD cpu on a budget? Why? If you had done that you could invest in like a rx 480 4gb or something.

I don't think OP chose wrong for their processor. Plus I would highly suggest to wait for Ryzen if builders desire an AMD processor. Supposedly it's to be released in one between two weeks from now.

Still there are some older 3.5 gigahtz quad cores (idk the name) that are ddr3 capable that could probably outperform the i3 for less.

If you are talking about the FX series for gaming perspective (which is what OP was aiming for), the "Piledriver" FX-9350 comparing with "Skylake" i3-6100, both are not too far apart for gaming performance. An FX-4350 between FX-6350 are somewhat less in gaming performance when comparing with Skylake's i3. The i3 is way underestimated when it comes to gaming at 1080p.

You are right if you meant by bargain hunting for used parts. Managing to build something less than $450 with an Ivy Bridge between Haswell Refresh of an i5 or i7. The FX series and Athlon X4 series will still have its use for workstations and gaming regardless; however, I still think it's best to wait for Ryzen to be released (no longer called "Zen") because it's coming very, very soon. This will also lower the prices of their AMD predecessors to make it budget friendly.

Do some cable management, then put up more pics.

Research the case, it literally has almost nothing for cable management.

At least it has replaceable PCI brackets.

Even you have nothing for cable management you can do like Biwit's Sleeper build or the"ketchup and mustard with a side of blue LEDs" build and least make that look a little neater.

Yea, a couple of black zip-ties and a few cable mounting brackets doesn't cost that much.

He either bought the parts before, or just went off a YouTube build, which is fine. Although the 4560 isn't that far behind, the 6100 is still faster.

1050 ti beats the 470 in benchmarks. Since more games are DX12 470 is starting to catch up.

Do you mind getting a benchmark example for us? In most benchmarks, the 470 beats out the 1050 Ti in pretty much all popular titles, both in DX11 and DX12. The only exception I remember is GTA5, but I believe it was only by a few FPS.

But the 1050 ti does beat the 460. But with driver updates it seems to be catching up.

Yea, but the regular 1050 also beats out the 460 too.
