Description

First build that was ment for school work and gaming. It runs all games I throw at it completely fine and I'm able to max out most of my games like ArmA, Battlefield, Fallout and Planetside.

This build was made in May 2015 and I've been very happy with it so far.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great dual-core processor that is able to handle games just fine. The only flaw is that it is not a cheap processor looking at the fact that it still is a dual-core.

CPU Cooler

Cools nicely on non-overclockable processors. The only problem I had were the Intel motherboard pegs that are a pain to mount.

Motherboard

Great motherboard coming with all features you need. I will utilise the M.2 slot later on.

Memory

Low profile RAM that is very affordable.

Storage

Basic HDD, does what it should but can be a little noisy at some times.

Video Card

Great GPU for its price. One of the highest factory overclock but a little noisy and can reach temps between the 72 and 76C.

Case

Nice looking tower but comes with thin side panels and the space behind the motherboard tray is not enough to stuff away all your cables.

Power Supply

Using the 450W variant. Does its job fine and looks solid.

Wireless Network Adapter

Great card, but mine seems to have some problems on 2.4Ghz networks.

Monitor

Cheap and decent monitor. Default settings were horrible but adjusting it was done in a second.

I see people with i3's in their build and im just like, I bought a 6 core amd fx 6300 for 90-something dollars, but then again, i do like intel better, its just that they are soooo expensive and starting with a good i3 is a good starting point for a gaming build, and so I guess I rambled on about this for nothing -_-
