I've been working on this exact project since march of this year! Took a long break from working on it due to school stuff, and just went to update the parts list only to see you beat me to it! You did a fantastic job here. Any advice you can give? Thanks!

It's not about the rating; more the quality of the components inside. Like the others said, upgrade to a G2 ASAP. You wouldn't want that one dying on you and frying all your new expensive parts.

You should look into the be quiet fan series. They are black and orange and performance is comparable to noctua fans. Cougar also makes some nice orange and black fans for a bit cheaper.

If you're gonna upgrade CPU/Mobo, please don't get a first gen i5. Go and spend a bit extra to get a 2500k or 4th gen i3 or i5 (3rd gen i5s tend to be the same as a 4th gen, so...) Love the price tag on this and def get rid of the PSU/laptop HDD and migrate over to a 240gb SSD. +1

Just a pointer, I suggest getting a GTX 970. Much better performance and is definitely worth the extra cash to make it more futureproof. Personally I managed to get one used from a friend for $160 and my older 750 ti so pretty sweet deal :D

Very nice job! psu could be ebay'd for good money, probably $45 is a reasonable asking price. CS series and most seasonic, xfx, and higher end evga psu's would be good, but as you arent challenging up to the 750w this should last a couple years.

for an i3, personally i think there could be a bottleneck by the cpu. as for the 960 i would have chosen that however he justifies his choice in the description.

Best way to make good cash on this is probably an eBay auction with a set reserve to make back the money you want. Or a buy-it-now listing and have buyers send in their offers for the machine. Shipping can be a pain, that's the only real downfall. On the flipside you'll sell fast and make good cash. I would know because I sell computers on eBay occasionally. Hope I was of assistance. :)

Perfect build at a great cost, that GPU will need an upgrade for modern games and is a bottleneck on the CPU... but with the games you're playing and the money you spent I say it was a great job. +1

Nice little read there. I like your story. I'm yet to have built my own PC, and I just turned 15. Luckily I was very driven to work when I was a younger and saved up $1,500, which I used to buy myself a great computer off of eBay and only spend $500 bucks. Now I'm selling it to my lifelong friend so he can have the same joys with it that I had, and am building a new one, and my budget will be $1,500 as I have quite a bit more now. Love the build. If I may recommend an SSD, a great cheap one is the Kingston SSDNow V300 (which i currently use). You can pick one up for around 50 bucks for 120gb.

Bro, I'm 14 and I've made $1,300 with no job. Worked for every penny. And got a steal on a new $1,500 PC for $510 brand new off of eBay. With razer gear.

You could have gotten a psu for 1/3 of that cost to meet your needs. An entire hard drive could've been knocked off and 1 tb instead for same price. Good deal on gpu, but is not powerful or modern. Cross fire would be smart.

Its too late now, but if you look up XFX R9 270X on amazon, there is one for the exact price you got your current one. And there's a semi-modular 600W corsair PSU up for grabs on newegg for 34.99. Good build for the budget
