Hi, this is my first pc build I wanted to get the best bang for my buck on games.
I just built it today and haven't yet installed a operating system so I can give you benchmarks on how its holds up on most games. But I can give you a little more info on the specs. and why I got them. CPU: This cpu has come highly recommended to me by many people. I got the FX 6300 because of the 6 cores and the overclocking ability. The cpu is great for a budget system. RAM:I was going for a blue look for this build, so I wanted to get 8gbs and still get an good blue scheme going. Not much else to say. PSU: This power supply isn't the one i'm using. I couldn't find it on PcPartPicker, so... I am actually using the RoseWill Stallion(Blue LED). It is a good looking 500w psu.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182076&cm_re=rosewill_stallion-_-17-182-076-_-Product MB: The mother board had all the connectors I needed plus some. On newegg, I payed $70 for it on sale instead of $100. So I think I got a pretty good steal. Plus the MB allows for OCing of the CPU and GPU. So I'm extremely happy with it. CPU Cooler: I wanted to OC and wanted a low profile cooler. So I started to look at the water coolers on the market. I was happy I found it for only $60. Case: I've had this case in mind since I started looking to build a pc. It was just $40 when I got it and was blue, so it kept my theme going. To be honest I wish this case was only a little bigger, which made cable management a lot harder. Overall for $40 I can say i'm happy. GPU: This GPU is just awesome. The gigabyte G1 Gaming addition is a huge and heavy GPU. Other than a little drooping because of the weight, it fit in the case fine. I love that it lights up blue where it says windforce, and it just has an amazing back plate. I will give more info tomorrow when I have used it in games, but for now I'd like to know what you guys think about my first build any feed back is appreciated.
