Description

$655.00 Gaming PC Happy thus far but should have waited and went with Ryzen CPU's, maybe a better case. No problems as to date. Motherboard was $50.00 and GPU was $226.00 at time I bought at Newegg special holiday price.

Good build. If you can swoop up an 8 core fx for a cheap price used after you break it in you'll be even happier!! Good first build!! +1

I had an fx 6300, and wasn't happy with it but I did a build for someone recently with an 8300/970 gtx and it was playing games really nice. The 8300/8350 can still hang

Good call on that memory speed and config. That is the sweet spot with AM3+ chips. It really helps with gaming and overall system snap!

Great build! but like the other guy said, prepare for the "why not ryzen" and "why not pentium g4560" +1

I really should have waited for Ryzen but did not want to, however I am kicking myself for buying the 480 because as soon as I did the new 580 came out

Sell the 480 at this price right now, you could upgrade to a 1070 or a 1080 for only $100 give or take.

The prices of the 1070 and 1080 got 100$ higher too.

We could spend all life waiting for better. I changed my GPU today for a ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 580 8Gb Gaming OC Edition and.....remarkable how all works well. FX 6300 still rocks Nice RIG

Haha now you, I know you are joking. The other guy, I read his other comments on builds, he is a one liner and Ryzen pusher

I agree with that last part, if it does what you need and you are happy with it, its is good and that is all that matters.

I agree with your ideas because i bought a fx-8300 cause of the very nice price/performance relation instead of a ryzen 5 1400, but i cannot understand why you bought a ASUS Overkill MB for i suppose 200$ instead of a nice MSI 970a Gaming, a ASUS Gaming Aura or a cheaper 990FX MB. I have for example an MSI 970A Pro Gaming Carbon and i am very very happy with it!

That is fine if you get this MB for only 149$! :)

On a side note: I have a -G46, ran my FX-8120 on it for years with no problems (but I never OC'd it either); there are heatsink mounting holes on the -G43 that look like they would fit the VRM heatsink on the -G46... maybe that was the original intent?

If you ever get the OC itch, enzotech MOS-C1's are your friends

thanks for the tips I knew I was not ready to try over clocking yet so I went with cheaper board and I almost waited for the Ryzen but was to impatient and did not want to mess anything up on good parts
