Description

Built this PC for friend, his money, because he decided that it's time for him to get an upgrade. His current build is FX-8370 system that is will be giving to his brother to dip his toes in the PC Gaming.

He went with 6 core because he likes to game and will sometimes record gameplay as well. I believe he has a Elgato though but can't remember. If not this will do just fine, as I have the same CPU and it does quite well for me.

Cat is Sirius, my helper.

Q&A Time!

Why PSU? Needed a new one, this one has barely been used so I sold for decent price. Maybe he'll want to update to something in black or cables extensions later on.

Did you actually buy a GPU during these dark times? Yes! He wanted a GPU

Case price? It was mine, I take care of my things, it's almost like new, besides some dust. I wanted a FD case and he liked mine so I just sold it to him. Much better than if I were to try to sell online or locally.

Storage? I have had decent luck with Seagate lately and their drives are getting better. I thought it would be loud but not a noise, no errors either. He wanted a good size and I felt 4TB was just fine. Purchased the Samsung because it's Samsung! ;)

Others? Marked as $0.00 means he already had from his previous FX build.

Any reason you went push config on the rad over pull?

Nope, no real reason. Push vs Pull is like 1-2c difference. I usually do Push on front, unless something is restricting it then I change it. Hope this helps

Thank you for the reply! I ended up doing a pull config just because the fans are Rgb so you can see them from the glass window.
