Spoiler The computer itself without its peripherals cost's about $700.00 USD Spoiler

This is my Razer build, and I love it. It does a lot more than I expected it could (Witcher 3 at ultra with Nvida Hair FX, 56 FPS Avg, League Ultra like, 300 FPS obviously. Crisis 3 Ultra 52 FPS Avg.)

Yes, all these games were run at 1080p. But for a solid all around PC for $700, 1080 is fine with me.

Why I chose what I chose: Well, I've been a fan of Gigabyte. The first mobo I got from them was a, well. really cheap AM3+ board. I was expecting it to fry, die, or just not perform very well. It didn't. It came with good features for a $35 board and I was happy with it.

So, I decided to go with the 970A-DS3Pboard. I know, it isn't great for overclocking (Though I did manage to get the 8320 I have to 5.0GHz, but I keep it at 4.8 for a more stable experience.). It has a good UFEI interface. and the colors pretty much go with anything. (Of course, I did some customization to it.)

The processor, being an FX 8320was a pretty big step up from an FX 8310 (My first AMD CPU). It was much more resilient to overclocking and performs really well dare I say. I think that the 4.8GHz is its sweet spot.

The video card, an MSI R7 370 2GB OC was I feel just the right card for this build. Reliable, quiet, and for the price a great piece of tech for this PC. It really is a pretty good powerhouse to play anything and everything at at least high settings. It also handles some 2xSMAA very nicely.

The Corsair 400C is elegant, sleek, simple, and sharp. Thats about it. It needs no more explaining.

The LEPA 120mm AIO is a really great product for its price (However the "Ultra quiet fan" it comes with is far from it. I just use one of my 120mm Thermaltake Riing and one of the corsair fans that came with the case for a push-pull. It keeps the OC temps down around 35C - 38C and 45C - 60C under load.

All in all, I love this build. It's not the best, but for what It is I am very pleased with it. And for under $700.00 it is way better than any All-in-one POS you can find at Best buy or cough Dell.com cough

Some of the custom work: Custom Painted the MOBO, Custom painted the GPU and got some custom sleeved cables and cable combs in there. Some LED lighting and bam, it is one sweet, clean looking PC.

You should really have the 370 In the top pci slot for better performance, as that motherboards second pci - e slot is x4

The computer itself cost about $700, With the monitor, keyboard, mouse, mousepad etc is 1300. Since the keyboard, mouse and mouse pad all cost about $280 on their own.

Absolutely love the style (and performance) you put together on this! Where did you find the sleeves and combs? Also, what are you using for UV lighting?

I got the sleeves and combs from mainframecustom.com and the lighting is just a RGB 16 million color LED strip from Amazon (about $20)

That neon green and black I love. Razer colors of course but hey, it definitely works for the case.
