Blows any prebuilt gaming pc out of the water
is this a joke?
You spent almost as much on cooling as you did on a CPU and GPU.
Look, I'm all for AMD APU builds... but I have to say, if this is a beast, it's more feral kitten than roaring lion.
ehhh i'd say more of a kitten that growls at you.
I mean...if you're happy with it man that's all that matters.
It dosen't actually-
"Blows any prebuilt gaming pc out of the water"
You actually made a pretty bad choice of parts but still +1
The cooler is for the significant overclock on that dual core.
2.5" 5400 rpm drive in a desktop leaves a little be desired.
GT730 is basically a GT640, just about entry level gaming. Tiny power supply leaves no room for serious graphics cards.
Lot of money on nice to haves rather then the basic machine is all I see. No truly bad choices.
My PC with a 2600k and a 7970 cost me 550 bucks to build
He probably just plays LoL, WoW, and Minecraft.
id put more money in the gpu instead of the cooling..more pictures!
This build is anything but what the title implies.
What games do you play? and hows performance? Also could you post pix inside of the computer.?
Do you have any more pictures or a description? Why did you get an APU if you were going to get a GPU? the point of an APU is they are budget rigs that don't need a GPU. I would also get rid of that PSU, I will leave the rest of the hardware rant to the other folks.
If you would like upgrade suggestions let me know.
There are just so many things that bother me about your "Beast" that I'm not going to nitpick my way through them all; instead, I'm going to show you an alternate build I think might have been better:

If you want or need a discrete video card, you could try this:
Facepalm Theres alot going against this build. a GT730? and excess cooling fnas? and also a tier 5 psu? this is going to be nothing but failure.
CyberPower would blow this away at pricepoint...
This computer so good much wow omg how'd you get your hands on an antec!? +1000000000000000000000000000000000000
Please be joking.
I never joke about Beast PCs
"how'd you get your hands on an antec!?"
He bought it.
Also, a GT 740 isn't a very good gpu. A "beast" quality gpu would be more like an R9 fury x or gtx 980 ti.
nice but not nice enough
I had to neg rep, you could have done so much better for the money. And there's no pictures. Not even sure if its a troll post with copy paste from the internet.
This Is More Of A "Beast" At Least For The Price:
Lol you guys're so dumb. The man had the work of posting he's PC Pic there, probably to read some great things, ideas and suggestions and you guys're talking about the title. Probably is that what he can afford, not everyone can make $2500,00 PC's to be deserve to call a Beast. Probably this is a Beast for what he uses for.
I don't understand why we have to respect something just because someone works hard at it. Poop is still poop, no matter how hard I strained my butthole to push it out.
Yeah, but he did post it to a site where everyone could comment on it and named it "Beast"; that title implies a machine with way-better-than-average specs and performance, and this one isn't it. I think he might want to rethink the title, at the very least.
While I do agree with you, he could have still gotten better parts for the amount of money he had spent. 600$ is a decent amount, that he could have integrated an FX 6300 and a GTX 750Ti or r9 270, allthewhile still having a hyper 212 EVO and 8 gb of ram. His build is just awkward in spots that people point out because money could've been spent better places.
if you find a dual core for cheap the 730 still can be used to get a decent build but not for this build
