Looking for suggestions on a gaming pc build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm trying to build a gaming pc for a friend and it has to be under $800. His original plan was a gaming pc around $700-$800 and preferably 1080p.

 

After an hour or so, I came up with this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/f4JWzy

He prefers to buy stuffs on amazon and newegg

 

 

CPU : AMD FX-6300 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor

Mobo: Biostar TA970 ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Storage: Seagate 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Hybrid Internal Hard Drive (hybrid)

GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Superclocked ACX Video Card

Case: NZXT Source 210 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case

PSU: Corsair Builder 500W 80+ Bronze Certified ATX Power Supply

Optical Drive: Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

Monitor: BenQ GW2255 60Hz 21.5" Monitor

 

 

Total: $783.67
 

Any tips and suggestions would be much appreciated.

-Thank you for your time.

Don't get a biostar motherboard.......


My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Spoiler

Intel i7 4790k | AMD Vega 64 | ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S | Corsair Vengeance Pro 32GB | NZXT S340 | Seasonic Platinum 760 | modded H100i | Coolermaster SK630 White | Logitech MX Master 2S | 2x Samsung 850 Pro 512GB | WD Red 4TB Samsung 58" 4k TV | 2x Behringer NEKKST K8 | BIC Acoustech H-100II | Scarlett 2i4 | 2x AT2020

any reason why? and suggestion?

It is a cheap brand that a lot of people have issues or failures with.

Buy a good quality motherboard from ASUS, Gigabyte, MSI, or EVGA
