Description

I will use this system for light gaming applications like League of Legends and Smite. This is after all a budget build and I didn't invest a ridiculous amount of money into it. I will build a much more impressive system as the months progress. However, I do have to note that the CPU cooler that I did receive unfortunately had faulty hardware. I tried to line up the bracket but to no avail it simply did not mount without potentially damaging the screws or even the mount itself at the bottom of the cooler. Instead I used the stock cooler in the meantime. I will post benchmarks and figures once everything is good! Also will post more pictures when i've finished with the backside of the case and the cable management associated with it!

UPDATE: I will have more pictures of it when the cable management is handled. The gpu cables have been tucked back :P

Nice build, is there a reason for not having a HDD? I love that case by the way. I think it is simply beautiful. But, the second 760 will put your performance around that of a 780. However, I think if you go for a second 760, you should also invest in a 8350, you could use the same motherboard. +1

Just to get it up and running and functional. I already have a HDD on the way. I will definitely keep the upgraded CPU in mind when I figure out when and how I will update the rig :D thank you!!

The 8320 is the exact same as the 8350 only underclocked, and I believe it is only $130. Both are very overclockable, Jayztwocents on youtube got his 8350 up to 5.0ghz I believe. And that is a good idea, wish I had done that when building mine to be honest.

Use 1/6-1/4 on OS. Use another 1/4 on Games use the last 1/2 on ****. Could fill up entire drive in a span of 3 months.

THINGS ADD UP MAN!

But yea, no one should want faster storage ( as a primary storage) over 5x the storage.

I've had this cheapo laptop for a bit more than 5 months now. I have barely any games on it, barely any files and I STILL used more than 250GB of HDD space.

I'm sure I'd have a lot more space if I was running linux on this machine but windows is **** and will use up 20-60GBs on just the OS and updates. Good luck every downloading a video thats not compressed to **** because it'll use 1/20th of that drive.

So am I doing something wrong? Should I only have five of my 100 plus games installed at one time? Orrrr... should I get a 1TB hard drive?

  • 61 months ago

Well if you're going to install 100 games and have saves for example i would strongly advise getting a 1 or 2 TB drive as well as your ssd (put your operating system on the ssd and it will boot faster and you pc will run better)

Come tell me this when you install 10 games on your ssd, and you have no more room left because you can't afford to pay $500 for a big ssd.

Face it man. You're wrong. That kind of explains the downvotes. And most people prefer a high quality SSD like a Samsung 840 Pro or Evo over a cheap low end SSD. It's $50 for 1tb of storage. Which is much better than $200 on less than half.

I would only suggest getting a better fan later. But great build man, good job!

Thank you very much sir! I will be returning the CPU cooler that I had sent to me thanks to faulty hardware and will be upgrading CPU cooler in the not too distant future :D

Nice build! So I don't see one GPU in the pircture, is there a reason behind that? Also I think that the MOBO you have has some mounting issues, I had the same issue. The cable managment is good but I would still think of getting that GPU power cable a bit back to hide it better. Lastly if you didn't use the CPU fan it would probably be a good idea to not list it.

  • 61 months ago

the gpu is the evga geforce gtx 760 2gb superclocked and yes it does exist :P I have 2 listed because I plan on adding a second for tooling around with SLI. Could you elaborate on the MOBO mounting issues? The only mounting issues I had were with the other cpu cooler that I couldn't install correctly thanks to some derp hardware I received with the CM N520. I will remove from the list though and update seeing as how I am using the stock AMD cooler. The gpu cables will be tucked back and I will update those photos. Patience mi amigo patience :P lol. Thank you for the feedback :D

I never said these Graphic Cards don't exist, I just said you only have one so far. Some people have issues with mounting the CPU Cooler.

  • 61 months ago

oooh I got you. When I read the comment the first time I thought you were alluding to the fact that I didn't have a gpu installed lol. It's all good. The other CPU cooler would not have been an issue but the mounting hardware was faulty. I'm a mechanic so I know when bolts and screws are bad. I certainly don't like it if anything wants to crossthread by itself. So instead of potentially damaging the components I stopped and will look into a replacement for a better aftermarket cpu cooler in the not too distant future :D

Your CPU and GPU are perfect match sir... :)

I was kind of skeptical about mix matching AMD and NVIDIA but it seems I absolutely have no issues :D

760 for league? I hope you going to use the GPU for other applications because league is much more CPU bound.

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

He isn't going to have a single problem. Same cpu/gpu and league runs at 1080p 80+ fps. That game could run on a carrot

+1.

It seems excessive for JUST league, I hope he ends up streaming or playing other heavier games.

  • 61 months ago

I agree there, that system deserves some more stress. I will say that streaming on an fx-6300 has not been as good as I had expected, with some serious performance drops above 540p

What was your connection like (In kB/s)?

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

I have a 2mb/s upload, my bitrate is 1.15mb/s but that has nothing to do hits to fps if i have any idea about how this works, those would affect the network, mainly ping. The fps hit is surely from the cpu not handling the game and stream at the same time

I didn't feel it necessary to get anything low end or even high end enthusiast range given what I"m currently using it for. I decided on that card for mid performance and the looks. That card is sick. However I feel I did pretty good for the money I ultimately ended up spending for a first build :D

Ultimately this will not be for just smite and league. I will push it through to other games. Just for now it's running the 2 games I play the most of. I will stream and upload videos. Just gotta get another HDD so I can store bulk quantities of videos and edit them appropriately.

  • 61 months ago

No clue if your CPU will be good enough to stream, but ultimately it should be more than enough to render and record. Especially with shadow-play from the GPU.

True story :) oh it picks up video beautifully. Took me a minute to figure the damn thing out lol.

Great! Hope to see you on the tubes! ( And by tubes I mean youtube, you dont want to see the other tubes).

you can still overclock that chip to 4.6ghz with the stock cooler and temps aren't crazy high

  • 61 months ago
  • 1 point

I will certainly be delving into the overclock game when I get more educated on it :D I would prefer to have an aftermarket cooler before I do that though. Stock coolers nowadays aren't too bad.

  • 61 months ago

one thing I can say about overclocking if you have patience overclocking becomes really easy just don't do what my friend did when he got his chip he doubled the base clock and added 20 to the multiplyer and his chip went to 11Ghz and completely crashed his system and was lucky I knew how to recover it. this was just after he said "I know how to do it I've seen videos" he let me do everything after that

  • 61 months ago

ouch damn :/ I don't always use videos as my source for information. I at the very least will get advice from someone who has experience in it. I will however look into overclocking in the future

yeah I pull over 160 steady fps in Smite and over 250 in League. I adjusted the graphics a little to where what really matters is high. with AA and all that good stuff on :D lol
