It's pretty competent at what it does. Pretty OK for 1080p gaming, but you may want to save up more for a better upgrading experience down the line.

The 770 can kill most games at 1080p, and you can even get a mild OC on this bad boy. Pretty good.
 
The PSU was added in as an afterthought because somebody forgot it.

The 8320 is practically a monster when it comes to tight budgets.
The 280X is also pretty damn snazzy *clicks tongue and makes a finger gun*
This is also the first build here where you have a decent upgrade path, as AM3+ isn't dead yet

it's literally the same exact build just with a higher end GPU
i personally believe this is a sweet spot for price to performance, though the $800/1,000 builds are pretty sexy

mainly because the sub 1200 builds are amd cpu's?

Not trying to fanboy but that is partially it. A lot of the other stuff is highly questionable in my opinion aswell

I feel like this forum is coming to a low point. If it bounces back into the amazing community it once was when I first joined is something that I believe will happen but only time can tell us that.


The year is 20XX. Everyone plays Fox at TAS levels of perfection. Because of this, the winner of a match depends solely on port priority. The RPS metagame has evolved to ridiculous levels due to it being the only remaining factor to decide matches.

Only Abate, Axe, and Wobbles can save us.

I haven't been here long - only since the 24th of September I believe, but you and many others here seem like genuine and good people.  The forum has so far been an enjoyable experience and I hope whatever glory days of this forum there were - will revive and come back, as I too would like to see what that was like and what you miss clearly a lot.  ^_^  Also for the end game builds of the, "How or why would you spend that much what is wrong with you" section of all this :P  Here's this http://pcpartpicker.com/p/NLH2zy
