My gaming PC

After a long wait, since april when i bought a nice Gigabyte motherboard, i finally built my gaming PC. It's a budget gaming rig, it's not the best out there but it will serve its purpose.

Kalashna, my gaming PC, reuses some hardware i already owned but the main parts are brand new and i'm upgrading the reused parts soon. I actually built it a week ago but i have no camera now so i cannot take it pics [a friend of mine haven't returned my camera yet], that's why i didn't post before.

Kalashna's specs are the following:
Mainboard: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3
CPU: AMD FX 8320 3.5 GHz [4.0 GHz turbo], 8 MB cache L2, 8 MB cache L3
Memory: Crucial Ballistix 4 GB DDR3 1600 8-8-8-24 [going to be upgraded to 8 GB asap]
Primary graphics card: MSI Nvidia Geforce GTX OC 2 GB GDDR5 memory
Secondary graphics card: EVGA Nvida Geforce GT 545 1.5 GB DDR3 memory [it handles PhysX but not dedicated to it]
Hard disk: Western Digital Blue SATA 3, 500 GB, 16 MB cache
Power supply: Diablotek UL series 675 Watts
DVD burner: Lite On DVD burner [this part is not that interesting]
Case Thermaltake V4 Black Edition, 1 rear fan, 1 front fan, 1 bottom fan, 2 top fans [all fans 120mm]
CPU cooler: Cooler Master N520, 2 fans [huge fan if you ask me]

I feel really happy with my new PC build, specially because it will be dedicated just to gaming and perhaps some video encoding when i have the need. As of performance, well i feel it more responsive than my previous gaming setup, but let's remember it's the same graphic cards and i have only 4 gigs of RAM, before i had 8 but despite that games run well and look nice also. I'm proud of my gaming PC and i should be using it a lot, for the purpose it was made: gaming bitch!!!

-->Update: i got a new graphic card, so i have to change the specs.


  1. In order to choose the best video gaming card you will need to think about the type of games you want to play. It will be possible for you to find a gaming card which will suit your requirements and which is affordable once you have decided on the games you are going to play and you have had a good look around. best gaming monitor

  2. One of the greatest ways they are justified, despite all the trouble is the point at which you take a gander at expense. best gaming monitor

  3. You build your whole gaming pc at home? If yes, then it's impressive. How much time it took to create one?

    1. It actually doesn´t take a lot of time to build a computer. First you need the knowledge, i mean how to build it (there are several tutorials at Youtube) and second, and most important, you need money, your PC will only be limited on how much money you are investing in it


So, what do you think?
