I actually don't use that PSU in the build, I am using an OEM Dell PSU and that was the closest I could find to that dell OEM. But I would suggest get something at least 80+ bronze certified, don't want to cause a fire from a bad PSU

OMG. This is an awesome build! only thing that I didn't agree with was the PNY GPU but other than that everything else is perfect!

The Display Driver problem is an AMD driver issue. My friend bought an R9 270x and the same thing would happen every few minutes. after a few days of troubleshooting nothing was working so he just returned it and got a GTX 760. That CPU was my first CPU and it bottle necked my GPU by around 50-60% with a gtx 760 so I would suggest for your first 2 upgrades to get a new cpu and mobo. And this bottle neck happened when the cpu was OC'd at 4.8 ghz. Still it's a very good build!

Very nice AMD build! I think you balanced this off very well. I do have to admit that the keyboard is alittle pricy but any keyboard that comes with an LCD screen is worth the money!

It all really comes down to what he is willing to pay for. You are absolutely right but in my opinion the PSU is the most important part of the build and its the only component that can break other components.

I cant see why that can't run arma 3. The only thing I would say is to choose a different PSU like seasonic or corsair and if all possible get a gtx 760 or AMD equivalent to run the game at more max settings.

Wow dude great build! I was also unfortunate enough to have to use an alienware m14x. I had to send it in 6 times after less than 8 months having it. Built my system just a few months ago to get way from dell. Hope you have fun with your new build!

I like how you buy one of the best gpu's on the market and just have one tiny stick of ram. Got a good LOL out of that. Nice Build!

mounting the 212 that way wont really do anything. just isntalling that one ram stick. But most people install the ram first anyway so there really isn't a problem. Very nice build!

do you suggest that creative labs sound card? I was thinking of getting one for my own build but wasn't sure it was worth it. Very nice balanced build!

Windows 8.1 also has an option to boot directly to the desktop. And if you right click on the menu button it gives all the options of the start menu in windows 7.

This is a really great budget build. Everything is balanced well, except that PSU. I would suggest the next thing to upgrade would be the PSU but if you just the PSU then definitly go for the ssd. I own 2 ssd's in Raid 0 and I could not live without them. Great Build!

Well actually its probably the cooler. I have a Gigabyte version of the card which has 3 fans instead of 2 and is pre OC'd. That might be what made the difference.

Im surprised that your GPU goes to 80 degrees. I have never seen my 760 go above 70 degrees while playing Metro LL. what is the fan speed when your at max load?

I would suggest just to wait any extra amount of time and get a gtx 760. It runs all current games at ultra to high settings and is a great value.

No dont listen to this guy he basically told you to get a crapy motherboard that could break at anytime along with a crapy power supply. What you have now is great! if you want to save some money you can get a 550w to 650 watt power supply but make sure its at least 80+ bronze.

Looks great! The only thing would be in the future if you wanted to SLI you would need a bigger PSU but if you dont plan to than you are in the clear!

Its actually not really Overkill if her has the full flight simulator setup that takes 100s of watts of power out of the computer via usbs. With that said it is a bit much but its good to be on the safe side.

yes it is its just I would prefer not to have too. you see I play flight sims along with fps. For flight sims 2 gbs doesn't really cut it. but for fps 2 gbs is more than you world ever need. I was just seeing is I could keep my current card instead of having to sell it. Thanks for your response!

BenQ RL2455HM I own one and I love it more than any monitor I have ever used. Its a little bit more expensive but I believe its worth it. just remember when it comes out of the box the colors look weird because its in RTS mode you have to change it to movie or anything else.

Samsung EVOs are the fastest SSD's on the market along with the samsung magician software that greatly enhances performance of the SSD and the whole system. I would only get kingston because its a little cheaper and still pretty fast. and I have no opinion on the Corsair SSD only that Corsair is a very good company.

Its a nice build! The only thing I would say is that you should have gotten a better motherboard. I use to have it and I had alot of problems with it. And also to get a bigger SSD but the SSD is really if you think you really want it. Still its a nice build!

I believe that the computer is loud on start up because the GPU fans usually go to almost full power, I dont know why but it happens with my card so might for you too

For the money I would say its a good build the only thing is that if you plan to Crossfire later for more performance your processor will most likely bottle neck the GPU. But I think with one GPU it should be fine for now.

That motherboard and case looks like the same parts from my 4 year old dell desktop. I hope this works well for you! has the graphics card been bottle necked by the CPU or is it still working at max?
