Is this a good 750$ gaming PC build ?

Tell me what you think

I am planning to OC CPU AND GPU. I will play games like Far Cry 3, Max Payne 3, Sleeping Dogs, Fifa, PES, Grand Theft Auto IV and things like that.

I will use Crossfire maybe in a few years .

    That is the best it can get. Good job. You should be able to get some decent settings in there.

    Hope this helps,
  2. Yes, it will a good gaming pc. Only problem could be that it won't do single-threaded apps so good, but at that price point you can't get anything better so take it.
  3. For single cards, AMD is fine, but for two or more, SLI generally works (scaling varies) but Crossfire does not. If you are interested in running multiple graphics cards, I'd suggest going with nVidia unless and until AMD fixes Crossfire.
    You may want to get some low-profile RAM to avoid possible clearance issues with the heat sink.
    As to that, the Xigmatek Gaia cools within 1C of the Coolermaster but is 6db quieter and is only $20 at Newegg. Both of my rigs use them, and they work well for me.
  4. thats one of the best at that price point.good one although a SSD would have been good though. but overall a really nice build ;)
  5. Hi zeMOo!

    First of all, congratulations on a great guild!

    I would just like to suggest that you go for an HDD with bigger capacity, say at least 1TB. The games that you love to play will usually consume huge storage spaces (> 10GB). I tend to hoard games in my HDD, meaning I don't uninstall them even if I finished them already. If you're like me, 500GB won't be enough.

    Actually, saves you $4.

    Not sure CrossFire brings anything to the table for you. By the time your Radeon HD 7870 XT 2GB starts showing any age you will likely be looking at not the next-gen video cards, but the next--next-gen.
