The GPU was gift towards some work I performed. As for budget. When this build was completed the price of GPUs were crazy and still are. I just recently got my hands on a R9 270x that I threw in.

+1 for the build and the thought of your dad having his own system

Yes. Thanks to Craigslist and eBay this build was made possible. I can say though that Craigslist is hit or miss on PC parts.

This GPU was not on my radar. It has performed very well. Crimson drivers worked very well. No lag or stutters and put out 50-60fps

Thank you. This beat my last build by a little over $100. The performance I am seeing is quite impressive from my last build. What was your last budget build?

Thanks. This was a rebuilt. It was originally built in 2010 with the W3550. I have talked him into a Ryzen 1700 build for Christmas. So we will update then.

There's no easy one-click overclocking options on this board, but if you have a bit of knowledge and enough cooling, the UEFI BIOS does let you tweak CPU and RAM clock speed and voltages. If you change the cooler, your case would support the Hyper 212 EVO or maybe you could do an AIO.

+1 for the idea that I was working on to complete my current build. Did you try to OC? If you are using the stock cooler try changing the thermal paste to IC Diamond 7. Watch them temps lower...

+1 for the HTPC 4K Gaming design. What are the temps like in that case?

Thanks. I was a little worried how my cable management would be since I hadnt built in a while.

+1 for the APU build. Also APUs like faster RAM. You could max out your RAM with 2133MHZ with your mobo. That should help with gaming a bit.
