Hello Everyone

Hi Everyone,

I did my first overclock yesterday on my 3 month old pc and I'm very happy with the results. I built this pc mostly for gaming and really needed to upgrade from my old 13 year old pc. I have filled out my signature to show my build. I hope to be able to learn more and share my knowledge with others in this community.

Kool starter rig.

1) I recommend you spend just a LITTLE more cash on upgrading your PSU to something higher such as 650w bronze or something silver 550w.
Because you may want to overclock your CPU (I owned a fx4300 AMAZING CPU i Overclocked it to 4.7ghz with air cooling, and little voltage increase)
Also you want to have enough power to overclock your GPU, and or when and if your ready to handle a larger GPU in the future.

2) Your memory is more than enough, and your hhd is enough as well.
i am not sure if you bought your parts already but everything seems fine except the PSU which would be best to buy a larger one.

3)motherboard I am not sure on the brand hopefully someone knows about the motherboard.

Thank you for the reply. I do plan on getting a bigger PSU in the near future, especially if i decide to crossfire this graphics card.

I decided to do the overclock and i was able to get it stable at 4.5ghz. One of these days i'll decide to try and bump it up even more when i get more cooling.

Since my hours will be picking up at work and the holidays are coming. I might have to pickup an SSD drive and more fans too.

You can diff hit higher with that nice HSF you have on your CPU, fx4300 runs REALLY cool.
Yeah if you decide to upgrade you GPU set up I HIGHLY recommend you buy a higher end GPU (single card set ups are better than dual, because of driver issues,heat, and energy consumption)

+1 rep for your setup

Thanks. I'll definitely look into a better GPU when i upgrade.

I might get more fans for the tower and see how much further i can overclock this FX4300.

Thanks. I was wondering how everyone had their builds linked in their signatures. It's always confusing going to a new forum.
