Just put together with a mix of new and used parts. The GPU isn’t great but it still runs pretty well. The cpu is surprisingly good, better than previous gen i5’s. the case has a custom front panel.
"The gpu isn't great..."
Shhhhh...it's ok my gtx 780...you never heard that...
Oh and also nice build you have there. +1
Its not bad lol. Still good for 1080p gaming. Not much worse than a 1060.
I mean, I still have my gtx 780 with an aftermarket arctic twin turbo cooler on it in my main rig but ,in the usa, there's rx 480/rx 580 for less than 120 dollars and 8gbs versions for 140 dollars on ebay.
It was an amazing gpu that gave me a blast but I'll be moving on to a gtx 1070 ti and xeon w3680 very soon.
I had this gpu already. I didn’t buy it for $200. I just set that as the price as they sell for around that on eBay in Canadian $$. My main build has a 1080 ti and 9900k. I will be posting it on here pretty soon.
I'm surprised more people don't use the 8350k. Maybe its just the stigma left over by the 7350k, but it has no reason to be a bad cpu.
There never such thing as a bad cpu.
Just a bad price/performance.
Price and performance is basically the only thing that differentiate every cpu that has ever existed, so I consider a cpu with terrible price/performance at any given time to be "bad".
Although you could make the argument that a $10 8700k would be "better" than a $0.01 a64 3000+, even though the 8700k isn't technically 100x better.
There's probably that. I'm guessing some people gravitate to Ryzen for their unlocked 4-core CPU needs.
probably, but 5ghz+ is very useful for some applications, and this is the cheapest way to get it. (fx doesn't count)
The gpu is basically as powerful as a gtx 1060. I would've spent less money on a new/used rx 580, but that is still a solid pc.
Don't need thermal paste.
