This Is My First build done completely at Microcenter This pc can run 1080p medium to ultra settings depending on the game

I choose the fx-6300 because of its really cheap combo price with this motherboard and this motherboard I had trouble installing it in the case because the IO shield would restrict so now it bulges I got this video card with an open box deal which was a steal because of its performance I thought about installing windows 7 but I thought to my self if Microsoft is telling the truth that windows 10 will be very similar to Windows 7 that I will try it out. And it turned out that I love this operating system. Edge is decent because it does not support plugins to play bf4 off of it. I chose the 300r because of good reviews the ability to expand plus it is corsair. The Asus VX248h is a very thin very wide 1080p 1ms 24 inch monitor by ASUS for a decent price with a rebate I love it so far so good This build has been plenty for me and I plan to switch the loud stock cooler to a h110i or something along those lines for a good overclock out of this processor but for now 3.8 ghz is great In the future I plan to add another video card and a new psu for more power

sorry for the bad photos

Update I bought the Logitech g710 keyboard and the Logitech g502 mouse
