Description

After much time spent tweaking the parts list to my liking, asking around on the interweb, shopping for the best deal, I finally have a finished build.

The experience itself was very rewarding, since everything fit together like lego and I didn't run into any major hurdles. BUT – I did end up waiting a week after I started my build to actually finish it. Long story short, I had to order a usb wireless adapter after finding out that my GPU was covering the only available PCIe slot for my wireless adapter card (grr).

And with RGB being all the rage at the moment that just adds that finishing touch with the least amount of effort, I decided to install these RGB LED strips at the last minute (I'm glad I did it)

They were a good buy, but a little hard to work with since you only get 100cm of the thing and I ended up sticking a part of it on the edge of my case fan since I didn't have a choice (it's a budget case).

Overall, it went really well with my case being the only major setback to getting cable management perfect.

OCs and all that other good stuff is yet to be completed.

Thanks! Maybe you were looking at the American price?

In Canadian dollars it ends up being a lot more so yeah, don't let that fool you.

this build looks more expensive than it really is. +1

Don't be fooled – I'm from Canada so it's actually as expensive as it looks.

I know what you mean, that tax really threw me off!

My original budget was more like $750 – which I definitely could've hit btw if I hadn't splurged, and that HST doesn't help much either.

Great build, Looks more expensive than it really is. The only thing I would change is the stock heatsink.

Weird monitor, but i like the build. The FX 6300 isnt a bad cpu tbh. But you would certainly benifit from an SSD +1

The monitor was my parents. I had to use it because I already ran over budget. Same thing goes with the SSD. Thanks!

Np! Get an SSD and it will feel a lot snappier in general

you can also get a GTX 1070 with a FX 8350. A good combo for playing 1080p/1440p on a budget.

The best is, you can play all games on the market now with high settings. Nice rig!

I have some catching up to do so I'm playing tomb raider rn. High settings and virtually no drops in fps.
