So after my last gaming (Q6600) computer died after nearly 8 years of use I was out of gaming for months as I did not have the funds at the time to build a new computer. But that has changed as my parents have purchased me a new custom gaming rig that I will be picking up at Micro Center on Wednesday for my Christmas/Birthday present as my birthday is close to Christmas . I purchased a bunch of parts and had them build the computer for me on Sunday.

Here is the specs.

CPU: AMD FX 8350 8 Core

Motherboard: ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0

RAM: Crucial Ballistix Tactical 8GB DDR3-1600 (PC3-12800)

HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7,200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked w/ACX Cooler 2048MB GDDR5

PSU: EVGA SuperNova 750W Gold Fully Modular

Case: Cosair Carbide Series 400R Mid Tower ATX Gaming Computer Case

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper N520

Optical Drive: Lite-ON 24X SATA DVD Burner

Operating System: Windows 8.1 64-bit System Builders


I am extremely excited to pick it up I will keep you guys posted after I get everything set up.

I was only allocated a certain amount so I could not add more ram or get a better video card. But I am satisfied with the build so far. I can always add more RAM in the future. Also, I dont plan on getting an SSD until I can find one with over 500gb for under $80 which will be ways off. I might upgrade my Hard Drive to a Hybrid drive in the future as well but this Seagate will be fine for now.

Back on topic, nice build. Overkill powersupply, but everything else looks good.

Why no SSD until 500GB? It makes a world of difference. I do not regret paying so much for my 120GB at all. As soon as I can afford to go all SSD (2TB +) I definitely will, but it's worth having a small SSD in the mean time.

I would get a less wattage PSU but better quality. You don't need 750W for a single 770. 550W would be more than enough if going with a high quality unit.

This. CX PSUs are almost what I would consider junk PSUs, but kind of just scrape by as good enough tongue.gif I would look at a nicer 500/550W unit too. Look up the OEMs and reviews.

The computer is already built guys. I have to go pick it up around 12 noon

And the 750W was only $10 more than the 600W I was looking at and this PSU is modular.
The extra power is a good idea in case I upgrade to a more power hungry Video Card in the future.

Plus the extra power is a good idea since my Video Card is Super-clocked.

Either way, for $10 more it was an easy decision
