So for the past few years i've been using a ****** old amd apu powered 1.7 ghz laptop that ran tf2 on low settings at 15 fps.
After 2 years, i decided that i'd had enough of this **** and started to save for this monster (in my opinion) I wanted something that could run bf4 because my friend has been playing it since it came out and wanted me to play with him.
I spent almost 4 months researching for info about pc's and how to build them as i was a nuub. i have learnt a lot and i am now a bit geeky when it comes to specs and fps and that stuff.
CPU: Since i was on a budget i decided for an AMD FX 6300. Whilst i longed for an i5, where i stay they are double the price of the 6300 so it was a good choice.
GPU: When i was looking around for gpus i was thinking about a 750ti but decided that it might not be up for the games i wanted to run (which it probably would have been) so i went for a slightly more expensive AMD r9 270x. I just think it's better so yeah that's all xD.
Other Parts: Well the rest was kinda standard, 8gb of ram, a good mobo, 1 TB hdd and a smallish case. Well it worked out well :D
It's just too small for atx, There is hardly any room above the mobo so getting those screws in was impossible. With the cables, i could hardly fit any of them through the back so they all sit near the back in the bottom of the case where they probably won't get in the way. Otherwise the case is ok, it looks nice but just be weary of the time you might need.
Well that's my pc, i'm having fun with bf4 on high settings at 60 fps and tf2 on highest settings at 300 fps. Hope you enjoyed,
I decided to buy some upgrades to cooling for my pc such as the hyper tx3 and af120 fans. I'll maybe add some more pics with the new cpu cooler, but i'll need to sort out the lighting in my room a bit XD.
Btw never use the stock amd coolers, they shook the side panels off my case once when i hadn't screwed them on they also vibrate and make a hell of a noise. just saying haha.
Be seein' ya!
