This is my current gaming machine. Unfortunately, I'm already upgrading and it hasnt even been a year yet. Handles a lot of games really great thanks to my XFX R9 290 DD. But my current cpu makes some of my games crash once in a while. Not the best for multi-tasking. Motherboard is cheap but not good for overclocking. Will need to eventually overclock my GPU and CPU so i'll do another revamp of my build.
Pros great cpu for those who are not overclocking and just playing games. value is better than amd cpus imo
Cons doesn't make most of my games hold a stable framerate. terrible for multi-tasking
Pro affordable has enough sata good for single card gpu
con no xfire/sli no overclocking power pins may bend easy, causing my pc to turn on by itself once in a while
good budget ram
very fast ssd, might get the 850pro evo and switch my OS there
great for mass storage but makes a lot of noise
one of the best custom cooled gpu for the r9 series. This thing is whisper quiet and its 250W!! just a hundred more than the 780ti/980.
simple, sleek, stealthy, great for quiet and cooled pc enthusiasts.
con had to take one of the bay drives because of my gpu is big value wont hold up if gpus get any bigger :( still amazing case
not modular but gets the job down. Buy this if you are having a budget build.
