That PSU isn't one of the typical cheap $20 ones, it's a very decent one so I would be fine with his selection

Linus from LinusTechTips said himself that in the $100-120 price range, the FX 6300 was unbeatable. The 6300 might not be the best overall but for gaming, a task that requires more cores from a processor than anything else, the FX 6300 would be perfectly fine.

Yeah, the CPU cooler and motherboard could have been better, but this is pretty special.

Nice! Although I would say that the first part you should upgrade is the GPU; it's going to start to limit the gaming performance pretty soon. But if you play older games and/or you are alright with lower-end graphics settings, it should be OK. Great first build +1

Sweet! But why didn't you go with the 4690k?

You might have wanted to go with a GTX 970, since it's around the same price (and in your case, actually a bit cheaper) as the 770. But pretty solid. +1

What's wrong with facing the PSU fan to the inside of the case?

Don't really think that Zalman cooler is worth the extra $13, it could've been used to get a better case and the Intel stock cooler is perfectly fine. But great budget build

Nice build overall, but you probably would've wanted to go with 1600MHz RAM, that is just way too much $$$ for 1333MHz RAM. Also, I would've gone with a Barracuda 2TB 7200rpm HDD, but everything else seems very good for the price, especially the GPU.

You over-payed for that CPU by about $100

1600MHz RAM might have been a better option, especially for how much you payed for that set of 1333MHz RAM.

Nice build! Although I have some recommendations: 1. With this budget, I would've gone with a slightly cheaper AMD CPU like a FX-6300, so I had more $$ for a GPU. 2. Also, you might'e wanted to get a Z97 board with that Devil's Canyon CPU, but you got that mobo for a really nice price. 3. Don't know if that case is too reliable. But reviews look pretty good.

Overall, nice first-time build!

Nice build! How hard is it to mount new fans at the front of the case? I've heard it's pretty hard.

Hmm, I think a 2GB 770 will be enough for your gaming. An increase in the amount of VRAM only makes a difference if you're doing multi-monitor stuff.

That's a sweet build! Looking for Source 210 builds with SSDs + 7870 GHz edition graphics cards, and found this one. You said you need a 2.5" drive cage for 2.5" drives. How do you fit another drive cage to it? Or do you just mean a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter? Please let me know as I am making a very similar build

Hey, nice build! Planning to build with the same mobo. In terms of whether it works or not (I really don't care about BIOS options and versatility), how is the ASRock board?

Cool, but for the exact same price of the 320GB HDD, you could've bought a 1TB.

That motherboard is a pretty good price for Z87 chipset, but the -K and -C models have been known to be bad.
