Description

This is a new budget build to start the year off so I can game during the summer.

Bulletpoints For the Build: - Enough power to play battlefield 1 on Medium - High - Small Form factor Micro ATX - Dual SSD Storage - Overclockable - Upgradable

Upgrades for the future: - GTX 1080ti - Closed Loop Watercooling - AMD Ryzen 5 -7

CPU: AMD FX8350 - Would have initially gone with the new Ryzen Chipset but because I was tight on money I thought id stick to an 8350 which i have bought for 3 different builds now. After picking the motherboard I was delighted to find out that I could actually get a sweet 4.5GHz Overclock on only 1.38v. I read that it was impossible to overclock on this mobo, especially with only a 450w PSU.

GPU: Initially went with a GTX 470 As i had a spare one lying around but found a Cheap 760 On ebay that I upgraded too. I will be eventually upgrading to a 1080ti when i can afford to buy one but for the time being the 760 runs games at 1080p on medium graphics.

Motherboard: I wasn't too bothered about the motherboard at first, I just wanted it to be ATX. After realising i could get a sweet overclock on it, I will not be upgrading it until I go for the Ryzen Chipset.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.

I'm looking to build this computer but I need to change the video card and power supply because it's not available to me
