  1. Looks pretty good to me. The Phenom will bottleneck in certain CPU intensive games, but not a whole lot. What games are you looking to play?
  2. i will play like the cod series minecraft and crisis 3.

    what if I CHANGE it to a fx 6300?
  3. Drop to a normal hd 7870 and bump the CPU up to an fx-6300.
  4. Should be ok, Crysis 3 is pretty CPU bound but it's also pretty hard on the graphics.

    If you were going to drop the graphics and spend more on the CPU, I would get this over a 6300:

    That's a lot more balanced system IMO and performance will generally be smoother. Will also save you on the electric bill unless you like space heaters. The 660 performs within 3 FPS of the 7870XT and the Intel CPU will be way better.

    No bottleneck. And NO, get a 500w PSU from Corsair, Seasonic, Antec, XFX.
  9. Also remember that unless you have a Microcenter nearby that FX-6300 is going to be $15-20 more. Their prices are in-store pickup only.

    The 6300 is just so meh at $140.

    kk and I'm gettin a rosewood psu? how is that?
  11. Rosewill you mean? Its alright.

    A Corsair, Antec, XFX, Seasonic is strongly recommended. A cheap PSU can ruin your entire system.

    I know but I seen reviews of that psu I hope uts goin to be fine
  13. Not to be rude, but why even post here if you've already made up your mind about what you're going to get? That build I listed was much better for the money but you ignored it and now tiny is totally right about the power supply and you think you know better there too.

    That power supply is junk and that's the one thing you don't want to cheap out on.
