[Build log] Modest K380 rebuild

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is the first PC I've built or even worked on. I started the build in March 2013, it was to be a mid range gaming PC. Everything I work on, cars, bikes, my house.. are all done one a tight buget and the PC build was no different. I havent used the best of the best name brand parts and i've used a few products that aren't popular or had average reviews. I had no idea what I was doing and didn't know much about anything. Not much has changed tongue.gif

These are the parts I started off with.

Coolermaster K380 mid tower

ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2 AMD780L SB710 DDR3 AM3+ mATX Motherboard

AMD FX-4100 3.6GHz Max 3.8GHz Quad-Core 12M Cache AM3+ 95W CPU

USB3 PCI card

Kingston 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600MHz DIMM RAM

Asus Nvidia GeForce 1GB GTX650 video card

Antec 750W Gaming power supply

I ended up building another desktop for my wife so we could play Battlefield together. So I gave her my 650 and RAM I purchased a Gygabite GTX 660 and some new memory.






Our setup

I wasn't happy with the vertical sync on BF3 and I wanted to play in full HD so I got a new BenQ gaming monitor and gold connector lead. Apparently it is designed for RTS games but works fine smile.gif

So now I am about to start my upgrade once again in preparation for BF4. I am waiting on the following to arrive.

Leadtek GTX 680 4GB
AMD FX-8320 Eight core 3.5GHz
ASRock 970-PRO3.R2 motherboard
Corsair H60 liquid CPU cooler

Eventually im planning to upgrade my PSU and get another GTX 680 and run in sli. Get another 2 4GB G.skills and i've got a few case mods to do.

More updates will come next week.
