    what a horrible build where on earth did you think of this i mean really is it needed to have a 89$ board and 58$ case for a budget build trying to hit max performance? And WTF is the PSU 77$ for 60$ you can get a better one.
  6. The H97 mobo is much better than the H81

    The 52 PSU is much better quality than your 450.

    Your case is abysmal.

    Same with your HDD.

    I put together quality builds. Rather than rubbish.

    For starters seagate sucks and has lower reliability rates then western digital. Second the case gets its job done and its not fancy meaning more money can be spent on what matters the performance. The PSU i used in many builds and offers great reliability and Antec is a nice brand your PSU is actually a 520 watt unit a corsair can be had for less money that is more powerful, And really a wimpy 260X that is around 30% weaker than a 270? Now lets talk about an Dual core processor that is something that i would expect in a 400$ build I3's for gaming is just sad. You would of gave him a build that can barley play any games at medium 1080P at 45fps. Stop spending money on things that are not needed or just extra features when performance comes first. Also that H81 board has USB 3.0+Sata 3 who really cares about the rest for a budget build?
  8. And even more importantly you did not give him what he wanted you gave him an I3 over a I5 and a Radeon over a GTX. Again i say WTF
