It's a gaming focused rig that was affordable in the mid range for my friend. He ordered all the parts on cyber monday, so he did save an ok amount of money.
He did decide to spend $20 more for 16 gigs of ram rather than 8, which isn't all that bad but I doubt he'd use it all. My friend also used his old power supply in this build. Wish it wasn't all ketchup and mustard cables though.
Standard AMD processor that should get the job done for him.
Another standard unit. Can do some light overclocking with the processor to squeeze out some more performance.
Motherboard has enough features for what he's using it for so it's fine.
This specific RAM is cool as hell, so why not? It costed only a $20 different in 8GB and 16 so it's not all that bad... Even if more than half of it won't be used most of the time.
Squeezed in an SSD when it was on sale.
Standard for mass storage.
Pretty nice overclockable GPU.
This case was just his personal preference in what he liked. This case has a ton of room for expansion and has plenty of features.
