Allright os this is going to be a gaming + gameplay recording / streaming pc

i think extra cores would be best to drive recording/streaming software so that enough cores are left to the game rendering

FX 8320 8 core is just 120 GDP on amazon -
now i need to pair with it:
-Motherboard (2 video card slots needed)
-RAM
-VIDEO card ( probably 1 GTX 660, ready to upgrade to a seocond one)
-Power supply.

please let me know your suggestions- thanks!

total buget 400-500 GDP
monitor not needed, hdd not needed, drives not needed, case not needed.

thanks!!!

---- i like geforce for the phisx for planetside 2 , and the fact nvidias are optimized for arma 3 that i want to play maxed out...

In the future all games will be optimized for AMD Radeon HD (GCN) because that's what all the new consoles will be running.

thats some good intel right there! =D so what cards with what mobo is best to get ready for 3d without overspending? -----

also i really like "Oculus" the 3d immersive gaming glasses-- --- will they work with amd and nvidia is there going to be other ones? ---- i really like the 3d immersion glasses -- they are far superior in enhancing gaming compared to what a 3d flat monitor can do

I don't like 3D at all as imo it is far to immature of a technology and will likely take at leased 10 years to become something real good. 3D takes allot of power to run properly and really nothing can run it perfectly right now. You need a really expensive 120Hz monitor and at a minimum $1500 just in GPUs to run 3D that has crummy support anyway.

Your motherboard will need to have a 990 FX chipset to give you crossfire and SLI with the highest bandwidth

For a gamer 2 x4 gig of 1600 MHz RAM rated for 1.5 volts or less should be fine

AM3+ is the current socket and will remain current for at least one more generation of processor .

I do not know any of the UK suppliers , or your local pricing
but if you choose ASUS , Gigabyte or for budget builders then Asrock for your mb you will be fine .

AMD vs NVidia essentially trade blows and have lots of fanboys that will try to argue about it.

That said, NVidia's 3d tech is much more application supported than AMDs.

Still 3D is not really supported very well and takes far to much money to get running smoothly like a regular monitor at 60Hz cause you need double that to = the same smoothness.

Of course. I personally have no interest in 3d in that form.

I was just commenting on the generally accepted beliefs on AMD vs NV on 3d.

It really does not matter as you will just be disappointed with a headache in the end if you choose to go 3D. If the cost of 3D does not give you a headache the effect will so it a lose lose situation. Here is the cost of a good base line rig that can competently run games in 3D.

Monitor $529 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

GTX 770 x2 = $800

Total $1300 minimum for a craptastic experience that is guaranteed to net you a headache.
