Alright so back in february i got the idea that I wanted to build an affordable gaming PC that could sit on my entertainment center under my xbox one. So i did it, it took alot of trial and error as far as cooling went but here is the full build, which is currently capable of running the witcher 3, and fallout 4 on highest settings even though i turned anti aliasing off on fallout 4 just because i was getting some screen tearing.

Case- Silverstone Milo ML07 mini itx case
Motherboard- Gigabyte GA-F2A88XN FM2+ motherboard
Processor - AMD Athlon 860k Quad core Black Edition 3.7GHZ processor
Video Card - MSI Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 2g Gaming edition
RAM- 8gb Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR3 1600
Fans- x3 NZXT FN V2 120mm fans
CPU Cooling- Xigmatek low profile CPU cooler
PSU- Silvertone Tek 450w SFX style PSU
HardDrives- Seagate Barracuda 1tb HDD for storage, OCZ Vertex 3 60gb SSD for Operating System
Operating system- Microsoft Windows 10
Extras- Xbox 360 wireless controller adapter


Total cost- $678, now this price doesnt include the artic silver thermal grease or the windows operating system because i already had licenses to the windows and the thermal paste i had already. But this is a console sixed gaming PC that so far has played every game i've thrown at it. here are some screenshots as well as a pic of it set up

Thank you very much for showing the specs, price, and photo examples of you playing games with this  new build of yours. For what I can see, this looks like a really good guide for building a custom PC at an affordable price for many people. :yes:
