CASE IS ACTUALLY A VERSA H21, ISN'T LISTED ON PCPARTPICKER

This is a system I use for gaming and web browsing.

Every component works amazingly and have no complaints.

EDIT: I just noticed that I still have the stock cooler on in the photos, yet I have the Hyper 212 Evo installed currently. Also, the WiFi adapter is no longer in use. 150 Up/down reigns supreme.

Part Reviews

CPU

Perfect budget CPU. Does everything I want it to, and I have no complaints.

CPU Cooler

Almost silent. Is a pain in the *** to install.

Motherboard

Works great. Only downside is the fact there are no USB 3.0 headers.

Video Card

Plays all of my games at high to ultra and is quiet.

The cable gods are not pleased!

Other than that, good budget build.

I know my cable management is garbage. I ran out of zip ties after my little sister came through and stole them and put them who knows where.

Yeah. I guess I can't go back and change the parts list, can I? :)

Good work on your budget build. Plus one for it.
Now it needs some love for those cables. Tuck some of the wires in the 5.25" bays and zip tie down the rest of the slack, neatly, to the side of the case. Do not let any loose cables hang over your fans, especially your CPU fan. Having your fan spinning near by loose cables is an accident waiting to happen. It does not need to be perfect but some organized cables is good practice and a good habit to have. Regardless, thanks for sharing and good job.

Might try routing some of the Cables to clean things up a bit.. Just a thought..

Thanks for Sharing !!

That is a really good parts choice mate! The X4 860k and the R7 370 go great together! +1

They do I have the same but two 370's

They sure do! I haven't had a game I can't run playably. Rust gets a little unbearable, but that game is optimized worse than Fallout 4.

The only thing I have to critique is the lack of cable management. Try pushing most of those cables behind the motherboard tray if possible. But overall, I suggest zip tying everything if possible. ;)

Besides that, nice rig!

BTW...For yall who think the PSU is going to be doomsday for his PC: His system overall won't consume over 230W of power, with such a small power load on the PSU, the PSU can easily handle such low end tasks like this. Now, if he had a power guzzler like the R9 380X or R9 390, then sure a PSU upgrade would be needed ASAP.

I didn't know people thought my PSU was garage... darn elitists. Next time I clean it out, I'll get some zip ties and fix this mess!

great selection, but make sure to reroute the cables, lest you summon the giant flying spaghetti monster (praise be to his noodliness :) )

I was wondering when that name would be mentioned here, personally I prefer to call it cthulhu.

I like spaghetti... just kidding. It'll be fixed eventually.

Can this run Dying Light, F4, GTAV ?

I sadly don't have any of the aforementioned games, yet I want all of them. I assume this game will have no troubles with those games. GTA V is extremely well optimized, and you'll be getting 60 FPS on around high settings, with a little tweaking.

That would be my cable management right there if i didnt get a case with glass on it xD

Didnt think that far ahead good build though +1 bang for ur buck

Well, it seems that EVERYBODY jumped on the "cable-management-police" bandwagon in these comments here, so I will refrain. The build itself seems quite stable. As Doge would say, "Much AMD, such Red-Team...wow." +1

It is not a bad PSU. Yes the SeaSonics are of much higher quality, but this PSU is fine for this build.

That PSU is absolutely fine, has 80+ and evga quality...

Holy crap dude its a budget unit that for the price and quality its excellent, 8.4 out of 10 is really good despite the Capxon, also teapo capacitors are used not some cheap chinese ones, they are tier 2 which is fine and all of its ripple suppression and other stuff is above average etc. Calm Down. Soldering and sleeve bearing are compromises that will not hinder performance to a great extent, if you think EVGA will bring a ****** unit ur wrong.

I agree with xDiiThy. I used that same PSU to power my current build which includes an FX 6300 and an r9 380 and works absolutely fine, no coil whine, I can barely here the fan but for $34 which I got on a black friday deal. Its a steal.

Nah, it's a really solid unit for the price and quality. It is a 500 dollar budget build, sacrificing a little on the psu will allow for better parts. To top its a name brand with the basic certfications and teapo capacitors etc. Its got it where it counts.

Dude, stop being such a PSU elitist, no one cares. I see you doing it on every budget build. Not everyone has the money for a fantastic seasonic psu or high tier psu. It's annoying. This one will do just fine and he can upgrade it later.

were you really expecting a $100+ PSU in a >$500 desktop? that's like expecting someone to put a Ferrari engine in a cheap sedan. and just because the PSU is 'cheap' it doesn't mean it won't last you a while. i had an OCZ StealthXtream 2 600W unit that's lasted longer than a friend's SeaSonic 700+W unit. wanna know why? the 600W OCZ unit was powering a 450W system (125W AMD FX and a GTX 570), while the 700+W SeaSonic unit was powering a 700+W system (overclocked i5-2500K and an HD6990). it all comes down to how you use it, and given how you've "blown cheap units" i suspect you've been running them in systems that take their full power draw.

by this logic, the chargers that come with a cell phone aren't "the best units ever made" and therefore are considered garbage.
