New PC on its way!

Well its taken a long time, but the last parts for my new PC are finally on the way!

I just ordered an AMD FX-8350 CPU, another 8gb ram and a Corsair Graphite 230T case.
The case looks pretty cool for the price. I’m not into flashy cases with lights and shit, i only got this one cause it was cheap.

My system will be…

Gigabyte 970A-D3 Motherboard
AMD FX-8350 8 Core CPU Black Edition
16gb Corsair DDR3 1333MHz CL9
2GB Radeon 6950HD
3x 500gb HD

This system should see me through for another 4 years, but i do have plans to get another 16GB of memory whenever i can afford it, as i will be doing a bit of video editing.

I’ll wait till i have my new PC together before i post again. The parts should arrive this week and i by that time i should have got most of Pine Valley finished. I’ve made quite a bit of progress over the last couple of sessions and its looking really nice.

Stay tuned!

  1. Good luck with your new system as i hope it gives you the chance to work the best you can -But concider bying an aftermarket cpu cooler or a Watercooling because under load the fx8350 gets extremely hot.An Enermax or Be quiet or Noctua probably gets the job done cheaply if you dont mind them being a bit noizy.If you want something quiet and you are afraid of a full scale watercooling system then you could get an h100 or h110 closed loop watercooling.

    Also if you can afford to buy a small Ssd …Install windows and editing software for a huge reading/loading times improvement.

  2. I’m glad you got the upgrade! Keep up the awesome work.
