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.
