First build help


Recommended Posts

I built my PC on a little over $700 and I personally love it. You could probably do the same thing I did, but you'll probably have to find a GPU that's $100 cheaper.


AMD FX-6300 (Is only about $100 and is a pretty badass processor for the price)

8GB DDR3 RAM (Like, $30?)

GTX 960 4GB (This was $230 so I don't know about this.)

450 watt PSU ($100)

1TB HDD ($60?)

Gigabyte motherboard ($100)

Windows 8.1 ($100)

aaaand a little $40 case that is small and has no wire management, but has fans and proper motherboard and HDD mounting, with one spot for an SSD.

My system isn't all that different from Lucy's 

CPU: AMD FX-6300

SSD: Patriot Torch 120gb


GPU: MSI R9 270 2GB

Mobo: MSI 970a-g46

Case: Raidmax case

PSU: Raidmax modular 535W

Monitor: AOC i2367fh 1080p IPS

Atlantic Furniture Gaming Desk

Sennheizer HD 598 headphones

Mouse: Logitech G600

Keyboard: Corsair K65 RGB 

Its a workhorse and a heck of a good gaming machine. The only time I really have to dial down graphics settings is in Batman Arkham City but even then things look great.
