Description

Super easy build though cable management isn't the greatest for it isn't easy to do in this case. I'm getting about 55fps in GTA V at high settings so I'm quite pleased. Let me know what you think.

Part Reviews

CPU

Great price and does what it needs to.

CPU Cooler

Super cheap cooler and doing an amazing job!

Motherboard

Looks great and plenty of options.

Memory

It's that's cheap and looks good.

Video Card

Bought it off a friend because he got an upgrade(970) and can't beat it for the price.

Case

For $50 it has minimalist look and doesn't have great cable management but it can be worked with.

tiny_voices is correct, the cx series is a tier 4 psu which isn't meant for gaming or overclocking. Here is a psu tier list you can look at and later on upgrade to a different one: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/id-2547993/psu-tier-list.html

$100 for a GTX 760? Can't beat that indeed.

And while others have mentioned you should replace your power supply (and I agree with them), so long as you're not overclocking anything you don't have to worry about anything breaking. Just bear in mind that the CX units are not able to handle overclocking the way something like, say the EVGA Supernova GS units are.

No planning on overclocking but will definitely look into the power supply, thanks.

Dude I love this build! Where did you get that desk I really like it?

I paid $25 at a yard sale, sorry man.

For the money you could have had a much better PSU, but otherwise looks great!
