Rate My $700 Budget Gaming PC

Hey all, over the past few weeks i have been researching computer parts for my first build.

I am not really asking for any help, but any suggestions would be appreciated. Also I am $24 over my budget, so any changes will have to keep the price change to a minimum.

I will be using this build mostly for gaming with a small amount of video editing for my Youtube channel.

  1. Howdy,

    I would give it a low rating unfortunately..

    Mainly I have 2 justifications.

    The CPU. The i3-2100... You can get an i3-2120 that is a little better for roughly the same price. Its worth it.

    The Power Supply. Quite frankly, CoolerMaster sucks for power supplies. They do have a few decent models worth considering, however there good ones have better ones from more reputable brands in the same price ranges. CoolerMaster also has a history of deliberately lying about the capabilities of their power supplies. Stick with brands with better reputations like Corsair, Seasonic, Antec or XFX.

    Also, I would consider going with a 6870 video card instead of the 560 non Ti.

    Power supply- $25 after mail in rebate... Corsair CX430v2
