We worked with Amazon to put together a budget gaming build centered around the FX-6300. Unfortunately due to issues outside our control we were delayed in getting hold of some of the parts, so this build video came a bit later than we had hoped.

Sept. 11, 2015

Moving into the new office, we decided to build Jack a new dev machine. Jack helps with coding the site, but also loves to play games - "It's compiling!" he says... So this build is a mix of productivity for software development and gaming. We received the new NZXT S340 Razer Edition case, so given Jack's affinity for Razer we decided to use it for his work system.
