    Wink Building first computer. Mid/high teir budget build. What do you think?

    I am not allowed to post links, so here are the parts:

    Type | Item
    :---------|:----|
    CPU | [AMD FX-6200 3.8GHz 6-Core Processor]|
    Motherboard | [Asus M5A97 R2.0 ATX AM3+ Motherboard]|
    Memory | [PNY Anarchy 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory]|
    Storage | [Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive]|
    Video Card | [MSI GeForce GTX 960 2GB Video Card]|
    Case | [BitFenix Comrade ATX Mid Tower Case]|
    Power Supply | [EVGA 600B 600W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply]|
    Optical Drive | [Samsung SH-224DB/BEBE DVD/CD Writer]|
    Monitor | [Acer H236HLbid 60Hz 23.0" Monitor]|
    Keyboard | [Cooler Master CM Storm Devastator Gaming Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse]|
    | Total (before mail-in rebates) | $766.88
    | Mail-in rebates | -$35.00
    | Total | $731.88


    This is my first build, although I have been apart of the pc gaming community for a while now, lurking
    on /r/pcmasterrace and drooling over /r/ mechanicalkeyboards.


    If you have any recommendations, please feel entitled to post them.

    Thanks for your time and energy!

    Replace GTX 960 with R9 280X,AMD is better when you are building budget PC,also you need at least FX-6300 if you want it to be "mid" tier gaming pc

    On ************ it says under compatibility issues: 'Some AMD 970 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Vishera CPUs.'

    Do NOT worry about that at all,99% mobos are already updated it will work fine.

    Im just a lil worried because my friend recently bought a new gpu and installed it and every time he tries to boot up it gives him the bluescreen because of incompatable driver issues. Thanks for the reassurance though!

    Horrible build, I'm guessing since you thanked this thread: http://www.mpgh.net/forum/showthread...2#post10688462 and repped me that you took that build over yours?

    For about 700-800$ I'd do more with my money.
    I'd get a great Intel CPU/Mobo combo with atleast 8-16GB of ram with an SSD/HDD and stick to the shitty intel graphics. Later down the road when you've saved enough for a decent graphics card, toss that shit in and you'll be way more happy with your system. I don't get a dedicated graphics card unless I need one for a 700-800$ below build because I can live off having shitty graphics for a week or maybe even a month or two and tossing in an actual graphics card that's better than what I would have originally gotten if I was going to buy everything at once.

    Nope. I had this build made about a week before even reading that post.

    EDIT: Sorry, I misread your post. No, I am not taking that build over the one I made. I guess it was a mistake thanking you.

    Get FX-6300 instead of 6200.
