Description

This is my first "working" build. I broke multiple fm2 motherboards by having the touch metal, but they were off of ebay so no big deal. I'm planning to get a video card with this around Christmas for hopefully large price drops but right now it is better than the computer I have been using which has been running all games i have been playing, league of legends, Bethesda games, and some minecraft and war thunder. Link to my old computer which I'm giving to a friend http://pcpartpicker.com/p/rsVsNG

The CD drive i'm using I found in a box and the hard drive is just an old one that has like 230 gigs in it ( planning on upgrading it but don't really need to.

Almost done - i'm not planning to overclock because I like cool temperatures, but i'm exceedingly happy with it and cant wait for fallout 4

Part Reviews

CPU

The CPU is amazing even without being overclocked

CPU Cooler

The CPU cooler was annoying to put on and is a lot bigger than expected but keeps everything nice and cool

Memory

The ram is overkill and overclockable...

Case

The case is amazing it comes with 5 fans, sadly we had to remove one for the cooler to fit and the cable management isn't that bad but it is my first time so the only thing annoying about it is all the stuff that it comes with for the top IO

Power Supply

The power supply had me a little worried because when I got it there was a rattling then a weird plastic thing with 4 metal pins looking like a paperclip but i was kinda happy it came out because it would have done worse if it stayed in

Adjust your ram so it operates in dual channel. And flip your psu over fan down.

If you plan to get a 380x Get it its around 240$ and its better than a 960 with 2GB ! Or if your looking for a cheap and good GPu I would say a 690 due to my friend having it for 2 years now and he can play Fall out 4 with Med settings. But If you want to go deep into gaming get a 970 or 380X and youll be good!

you're missing a GPU? How do you expect to run Bethesda Games without one My recommendation is toss the skyline processor and go for the 4460 it will still keep up with the current games and future games Take the mobo and toss it for a LGA1150 compatible if you go for the 4460 you don't need DDR4 go with DDR3 16GB ram for like 80$ and Throw in a r9 380 or 960 4Gb

I can play both fallout NV and skyrim almost maxed As I said the Apu is better than my old system also I'm planning for a 380x( if it ever comes out) or a 390 just because amd cards last longer through generation

the 4 gig version of the 960 has no advantage over the 2 gig version, except it cost more.

Actually, there is an advantage when it comes to maxing out settings. The 4Gb will be VERY useful compared to 2GB when maxing out settings.

You can't say it has no advantages it has some just not enough that people will notice

its true, when i was shopping for my 960 i looked at the 4 gig version, but there was negligible performance gain. the card just wasn't built to utilize 4 gigs.

A 380X if it comes out or a 390

I personally hope that the 380X is 6gb so it can be 360 2gb 370 2-4 380 2-4 than something in the middle for a nicer transition than just 4 to 8
