My friend called on me to build him a cheap $500 entry level gaming rig. So we came up with this beauty.
Building went smoothly, there is absolutely NO CABLE MANAGEMENT in this case. Also didn't like the cheap I/O shield & Front Panel connections. Support page for this mobo doesn't exsit so you have to plug in you S/N to get proper BIOS & drivers. More to come...
Update 5/29/2015: My regrets with this build:// would've chosen a different case (1 that has better cable management & higher quality for same price) ; Also should've gotten a MSI A78M-E35 Micro ATX FM2+. Its cheaper & frankly the mobo i did pick out doesn't even have its own support page ; Should've gone with a 860K & R7 260x to save money in the long run (from having to buy a graphics card later). No OC capability (even on RAM), but that not that big of deal since he doesn't need it.
Despite my regrets & this definitely being the most disappointing build I've done, it plays & runs games great. We just bought a R7 265 for $80 what a steal :D. its Valley Extreme HD preset score went from 255 to 1102 (avg 26.3 FPS) about 4x the power & this benchmark is no easy to run gig either. Also since all he plays is L4D2, TF2, & couple other common games he'll be fine for a long time even if he did want to play AAA titles of 2015+. He likes it so I'm happy for him. Can't wait of W10 & Directx 12 & since he has a Xbox One he should get more out of both machines since they can talk to each other.
