I will post updates and pictures as I buy / build the parts.


[/hr]

Update 1
  • Updated thread, made it pretty, cause I was bored. Fuck you.
  • Finalized the build with help from Uni and Austin, thanks fam.
  • Bought the R9 380 for $150 (The extra $11 was for Paypal and Shipping).

Update 2
  • R9 380 arrived, great condition, just need to clean the dust off a bit.
  • Next purchase is gonna be either the CPU or the Motherboard, I've yet to decide.
  • Changed the case to one I already had (that I forgot about). Originally purchased for $100 quite a few years ago.

Update 3
  • PSU arrived, waiting for motherboard to test.
  • Next purchase is going to be the Motherboard.

Update 4
  • Purchased Motherboard.
  • Added a Sound Card as people were reporting problems with on-board audio from the mobo.
  • Next purchase will be the CPU.

Update 5
  • Motherboard arrived.
  • Tested Motherboard, PSU, and Case Fans / LEDS. Wanted to test GPU Fans, but they don't run till 60 degrees C.
  • Buying CPU (hopefully) tomorrow.

Update 6
  • Bought CPU, RAM, and Storage all at once. A nice $320.
  • Got 1-day shipping on all of them. I suck.
  • Will post snapchats of the building process, assuming they all arrive tomorrow.

the FX comes way higher in benchmarks than in real life because of all the cores (which are a lot slower), in some games it's a 15 fps difference

Went with most of your parts, but:
kept the 8GB of memory for now (Kinda stuck on a budget rn, wanna save as much as possible) while sticking with Crucial DDR4
kept the R9 380, since I'm getting it for $150 and people said you can overclock and get the performance of a 380X
other than that, everything else seems good

You can also look for a second hand reference 290, which might be able to unlock to a 290x even.

the fact you were actually going to buy windows makes me want to kms
you're lucky you were offered a free key so you can actually get parts that are less shit since you're too stupid to just torrent it like a man

Well, the new motherboards eliminate that money you save.

Thermaltake V9 Black Edition. People have had some problems with it (I had problems getting the PCI-E Shield off) and fans becoming buzzy after a year or two, and cable management is a bitch, but it's really nice for the $100 I spent on it.

I bought a case for a similar price, but it's a fancy bullshit case and I regret it now. too many edges, too hard to clean. I also unplugged the LEDs because I disliked them. Having the power buttons and usb ports on the top of the case is nice though

It is, very convenient
There's lots of dust filters, fans, edges with little rubber things on them, and tons of room and slots for expansion
