Anything wrong with this build?

Is there anything wrong with this build?

  1. you have to make your wishlist public.

    one more thing is that using is a great idea. it gives you usually the best price for any item and in a orderly fashion
  2. I'd get a case with fans in it. Optional means there are places to put one but you'll have to install them. You're paying 10$ in shipping anyway.
    /Edit deleted cuz I think your PSU is better. - 3 fans, Toms hardware recommended buy Side viewing window. Only 18$ more than yours cuz of free shipping. 5 egg rating. And the blue LED's look badass at night. :)

    If you're going to crossfire you'll need a mobo with 2 PCI-e 2.0 or 3.0 slots. It should say if it's crossfire ready though in the specs or description. Probably going to have to go up to a $120+ mobo if you plan on crossfire. The one you listed only has 1 PCI-e 2.0 slot so you'd only be able to put in 1 graphics card.
  3. So everything is good except my case? :)
  4. i really dont recommend APU systems. they have very little processing power.

    If you ever plan on getting an SSD later on your mobo will probably bottleneck its read/write speeds. The hard drive bandwidth SATA 3 Gigabit/s (not gigabyte, 8 gigabits = 1 gigabyte) is 375 mb/s and SSD's nowadays are around 500mb/s read/write. Most newer motherboards are 6gigabits/s (750mb/s) being compatible with SSD's. The mobo is fine if you don't plan on upgrading but if you do it's going to severely limit you. Although I'm going to say with SSD's the price might be decent within 1 or 2 years so you might decide to get one, but you just won't be getting the full benefit from it if you do.
  6. What's the most you're willing to spend? Maybe someone will be able to suggest a better build.
  7. My budget is tight right now so around $350.

    Should I get another PSU instead?
  8. you might be better off of a store bought pc. at this price point, those computers have more performance than a self built rig
  9. With only a $350 budget, You'll end up buying crappy low-end parts that you wont be happy with.
