Thoughts on my AMD budget build!


Aug 18, 2011
I tried to combo everything I could, I got the 750w Corsair for just 10$ more so why not I guess! :p I'm not worried about being able to play everything at max settings, just want my games to look decent and not lag. This is about as much as I want to spend right now. I may upgrade the CPU, vid card(sli/crossfire maybe) later but for now this should do the trick. Its been a long time since I built a computer so if Im missing something let me know or something I picked is el-cheapo! :pt1cable:
