Description

Decided to do my first AMD build after running a old Intel Core2 duo (yeah i know) build I've been gaming on for the 5-6 yrs. Running pretty well didn't run into any build issues besides working with an old NZXT case which will be replaced in the future. Cable management was a hassle due to case restrictions so cut a new guy some slack at least until I afford new case haha.

Believe it's a NZXT Lexa. Bought the 64 ssd probably a year or two ago that may be why i'm not sure. Thanks I appreciate it!

Yeah i though i could run everything on the opposite side of the case but wasn't any way i could get that side panel back on.

Pretty nice mobo I must say. And I actually considered spraying the inside and putting the original parts back in it after buying another case just to have a second rig.

You should have listed only the new parts that you purchased and listed the old parts you are reusing as purchaced on you list. I agree that you could do a little better on cable management given more time and thought even with a old case and PSU. I am curious about your SSD purchaces and why not a HDD 1tb that run for $70 or less, are you reusing a HDD? If this is for gaming why not spend $15 to $20 more and get a R9 270 or 270x? OC that CPU it will take 4.0 with no problems and unpark your cores in windows you will see vast improvements.

Yeah i probably should of done such but i couldn't figure out how to list the older parts through PC Part Picker. The PNY and Crucial SSD were both from my older build and also have and internal 250GB Seagate. As far as the video card I picked that up on a Cyber Mon. deal so im not sure its reflecting the price I paid for it. But i'll look into those R9 270 always been a Nvidia fan but change is good!

Cereal? I'm running out of an old NZXT case right now, with a core 2 duo, and I'm going to upgrade to a 6300 and 750 Ti eventually, hopefully same mobo too, because I like it. ಠ_ಠ

Honestly, you should of got a new case first, that old PSU placement is horrible for cooling, blowing directly onto the CPU. And you mention it's 6 years old? I wouldn't be running that PSU, I'm surprised it's still going, especially for a BFG.

And cable-management, obviously not there.

I feel you could of put money in better places, you don't need 2 SSD drives especially one of them being 64GB, even for a O/S drive, that's extremely small, and you will be running out of space very quickly.

No it is a BFG power supply.

To be honest this was just kind of flying by seat build after talking to with some coworkers. Once i actually started getting to work on it i realized i was in for more than i originally planned for but i wanted to take advantage of some of the black Friday and cyber Monday deals.

Yeah originally bought the smaller SSD for running my OS and found out quickly that it wasn't what I needed.

Does that power supply look 6 years old?

Yes, it does. It's a BFG which were commonly sold at Best Buy or Tigerdirect.
