At this price point I would have used the Skylake platform. Not because you're going to get an exponential performance boost, but to make sure your computer sustains a longer upgrade path. Only other complaint I have and it's actually more important than the first is using an SSD. They're so cheap these days and with your price point it would have been really easy to squeeze that in and very noticeable increase in performance.

I've seen 950s for a lot cheaper and before you upgrade to a 980 ti I would upgrade your CPU

AMD processors paired with NVIDIA graphics cards make me cringe, but you managed to get some nice deals. Have fun with your computer!

I don't seem to remember having any problems aligning them properly. If you have the majority of them screwed in and you don't plan on throwing your computer around you should be fine.

Gigabytes new NVIDIA graphic cards look super sexy! I love the form factor of the build. With how much you spent on the computer you should've spent the extra $60-$120 on a SSD for the operating system and commonly used programs like your internet browser.

If he had a bigger budget without a doubt he probably would've went Intel because it's a fact that their better, but it comes at a premium. AMD processors can do everything that Intel processors can do just Intel processors are mildly better. I've personally never found the extra $200 worth the extra 5 frames per second.

I did some tests on my TV which is 1336x763 (something like that) and its 720p 60Hz and got really good FPS and then on my monitor which is 1600x900 30hz and still got good FPS.

Yes. The A8-7600, not even with 2400MHz RAM, has been benchmarked to achieve at least 30FPS or greater on the following games: Battlefield 4, Borderlands 2, Tomb Raider, Dishonored.

I was going to but I didn't want to have to raise the price more for the person buying off craigslist. $500-$600 is a more likely buy compared to $700.

The reason for the optical drive is because most people expect one when purchasing a PC. And since I'm selling this on Craigslist I figured I might as well plop one in!

Extra fans? I stated that I had to purchase the fans because the case was gutted out. If I purchased the case normally it would come with two fans already in it.

I apologize. I wasn't really proud with the insides because the case REALLY doesn't have any solutions for cable management, but I guess I just skipped by that photo. I just uploaded it! Enjoy.

Awesome stuff! I wouldn't mind seeing some benchmarks if you had the time because I've never really seen a Xeon processor in action. Typically Xeon processors are used for like servers?

I would've invested some of your money into an after market cooler; Possibly the Cooler Master 212 EVO would fit in your chassis and would allow for some nice over clocking! I've never been a big fan of pairing a AMD processor with a NVIDIA graphics card. How's the quality of the Zotac graphics card?

I would've dual channeled the RAM and gotten at least a frequency of 1600Mhz. I love the BitFenix Colossus, better yet I love BitFenix! They house some of the best chassis/cases in my opinion. You should keep us updated on what kind of performance you're getting with some AAA games as well as common indie games.

The AMD is quad core?

The amount of cores and the clock rate are not the only things that make up a CPU.

I dunno how much a Euro is compared to a US Dollar anymore, but think it is around $1200 for 650£

This computer will provide superior performance, and quality. Allowing for many future upgrades saving you money in the long run. You can easily overclock with the motherboard and will stay cool with the mix of Devils Canyon i5 and Corsair Liquid Cooler. The GPU should provide solid frames on any game.

Before you friend drops $350 on a computer that will be outdated very fast, you should consider the following build that will ensure longer value and performance and will grant you the option of upgrading the CPU in the future for some extra performance.

You'll probably be able to play all the Steam Source games easily, Minecraft, World of Warcraft, League of Legends easily, and maybe even Battlefield 4 if you lower the settings and go 720p.

I like both Intel and AMD, but when it comes to HTPC you normally want low power consumption for less noise which would mean you would want Intel. That being said if you want to do light gaming, an APU would do a hell of a lot more then Intel HD 4600 Graphics.

Don't usually see AMD paired with NVIDIA. How come you didn't go with a AMD GPU? Better yet, you should have spent $20 and got an i5.
