Description

My brother Jacob and I decided we wanted to build a PC. This was the first one we did together and is running amazing. Around Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the price of the whole computer without a monitor and an operating system came to be a little shy above $500 but now is $613.

Don't listen to all this FM2+ hate, who cares if it's dated, this is a great build! I have that chip myself and with a GPU like that you will no doubt be satisfied with all games and every day uses! +1

Agree whole heartedly. A platform revision only affects those who look to short term upgrade paths using same chipsets. Which are usually outdated/replaced every few years. So FM2+ being superseded does not impact on those needing a budget gaming build to meet their immediate needs. +1

Have an 860k paired with an RX 460 and can vouch for it's potency. just because there is no upgrade from here does not mean it is bad, it works just fine ;)

What are some of the benchmarks? Would you say you can record gameplay and edit videos nicely on this machine? any pros and cons? Very interested in this build! Great stuff guy!

We ran some big games on the PC like GTA V, Overwatch, and the New Skyrim and put them at Ultra and it ran fine to the eyes. We have not tested for the specific numbers yet but we will work on it!

How is the case? I am thinking of using the spec for my next build.

Love it and looks awesome! The only problem was putting the Graphics Card in. It was a tight fit.

Hey, that's actually pretty good for the price, considering that it includes an OS.

It is a little outdated but what would you recommend for a next build? Intel or AMD?

Nice build ! AMD cpu is not that bad ! i'm using FX 6300 with RX 470 from Sapphire and any game is running very well in high/ultra settings. I presume that you have on this setting very good playing to ?

why did you go for the mini itx motherboard, and why not ddr3 2133 mhz?

Nice PC! But why not wait for Zen? FM2+ is almost dead anyway.

Yeah, we are new at this whole "business." Lol but @bradenfontaine is right, we cannot wait. We were so excited and it was just such a fun process to build it. So when does The Zen come out?
