After saving some money up I was set to join the PC Masterace, so I started browsing for good deals and managed to find the GTX 950 FTW edition on Newegg for only $109 dollars, Im not much of a huge triple AAA title kinda guy so something like this is more than perfect to run League and Overwatch at Max/High settings. After a quick look on Craigslist for some parts like RAM as from what my friends have told me you can buy that used and it should make no difference, I stumbled on an Ad from a guy selling the FX-6300, Asus M5A97 MOBO, and mix match of Corsair and PNY RAM. While extremely hesitant at first I decided what the hell and checked out the Ad. He said in his description that he was selling his sons computer as he moved away from home and didnt want it anymore even though he just built it a year ago. He wanted 150 bucks for all the parts and I managed to talk him down to 100 dollars since he really wanted to get rid of it, he even through in the EVGA 500W 80+ PS since I responded so quickly and available to pick it up fast. He even let me test the parts to make sure they were all working! In my brief talk with he didnt seem to know much to any at all of computers and more just wanted to get rid of it all, Win for Me!
I picked up a Kingston SSD to act as a boot drive and plan on ordering a HDD soon but figured the 120 GB would last me a little while. I went with the TX3, which is probably the only part i would change if i could as the cooler is very average and while it does a good job cooling my FX-6300 with a slight overclock to 3.9Ghz , it is quite noisy.
Overall loving the PC and its running all my games fantastic!
