Great build you got there bud +1 ...but ...since You're Down Under you could try your hand at the used market in Australia. I'll be honest at $59 AUD it's seems kinda dear for the performance you get compared to what you can find on sites like gum tree .
This thing looks adorable :3
How did you manage to get the 8350 to 5.5 GHz o_O
I was told by the Folks at memory express that the "PSU fried your MOBO" in hind sight the EVGA PSU probably wasn't the problem and the folks at memory express didn't know what the real problem. I recently used a EVGA PSU for another build and was quite impressed ...
In the future I will be using either EVGA or Corsair for my builds whichever one suits my budget
Nyuu is best waifu :3. when it comes down to GPU choice depends on what sort of performance you're looking for. R9 390 and 960 both are medium to high settings cards for current games. R7 370 and 950 are capable at medium settings
I'd say if you want performance both R9 380 or 960 they're both great performance either way
All I have is Fallout 4 as a fairly recent game ... I'm kinda broke for anything else at this point however I'm fairly certain there are videos out there to that have benchmarks for this card
I did not need to update any bios it was pretty much plug and play.
The Mother Board I bought on new egg
As for the R9 280X I bought locally via Kijiji
Sorry no I don't have video of me building in this case. I'm not very good/fast/ experienced at building . However I would say the case is very novice friendly.
in the photos is currently in it's stock configuration I have since swapped the clear plastic side-panel to the HDD cage side to improve airflow.
Yes they all are even the bottom one
Great case for the dollar ... I would build in it again ... assuming I get a smaller GPU next time
Nyuu~ <( °ω°)>
Ahh that card will do swimmingly then :)
GT 610 doesn't exactly really scream "gaming card" .. depending on the resolution it'd get the job done :d
Gratz on your first completed build :)
PS If you get some more dosh in the future and plan to play more demanding games the R7265/R7 370/750Ti are all fair choices
Wow this is quite an ancient piece of tech ... it's older than me. Kinda suprised it's still in working order considering that its age. Considering the raw power of the tech a the time ... does she run hot at all?
So much pink O_o . +1 man great build
I removed the stock cooler and installed the T2 however this rig is no longer around since I fried it while back :c
I don't think this MOBO can do SLI ... crossfire is there because the way AMD does their dual GPUs a bit different and reading the spec sheet it doesn't look like it can
Awkward how so?
Might have not been EVGA's fault but that's what the guys at Memory express told me the PSU was at fault for fry my MOBO and CPU. Regardless I will be stay away for a while and stick with corsair
Sweet build man question about the Kingston how would your rate her?
Great build you got here mate. I would suggest forgoing the DUAL Graphics and just go for a mid tier GPU like a R7 260 to R9 270
I like it quite a bit ...mind you it's kinda a simple one of (Low)-(OFF)-(High). Install of the Noctua was actually quite easy since AMD only has the one size(I installed it before if put it in the case) quite quite too -^
Great lil rig there. Cables look fine to me. Although what was your rationalle on getting the 860K instead of a FX 6300?
Sweet build :D love the athlon for being such a budget friendly processor :)
