Guide to Building a Budget AMD Computer for 2013

200th Video!!! I finally finished one of many good quality build videos. This is to replace my previous AMD Build Guide. Keep in mind that is is the first time I have made a scripted video like this and it will get better as I learn to make more. So bare with me please.

And as for the Anti Static Strap. I leave it up to you to decide whether or not you should use one. I have never had an issue with static discharging to my systems so until I do, I don’t use a strap.

A lot of people tell me that 2 hard drives are not needed in this build. I agree. The 750GB 2.5 Momentus XT was good enough. I put 2 drives in this video to show how to install the 2 different sizes.

Update: The link to the GPU is not the one I used in the video. The Radeon card I used in the video was a special sale on Newegg. Also, the prices and availability you see when clicking on the links is not the same as what I paid for them. Many of the parts I bought came from all around the internet. I suggest you shop around for best prices. But I do appreciate it if you use my links and purchase through Amazon. Many of the parts I bought came from Black Friday deals back in November. I will list what I paid for all the items here. These prices include after rebate deals.

I will also be uploading the captions and if I am able to hire someone to translate this into Spanish, I will be making another version of this video in Spanish. Yes, I will narrate this in Spanish with my own voice. o_O
