  1. If you ever plan on OC'ing, get a 990FX chipset motherboard. Also, get dual channel RAM. Upgrade to a 7970 GHz Edition card from the 7970 that you have right now. Also for that price, get the Corsair 500R case. :)
  2. 1. Get a CPU Cooler. Even at stock, the FX-6350 runs very hot.
    2. Why 12GB (3x4GB) of RAM? Go for either 2x4GB or 2x8GB. Also get low-profile RAM to fit under the CPU Cooler.
    3. Get a GTX 770 instead of a HD 7970 unless you must have the entire build be AMD-specific.
  3. Looks good but just get 8GB ram as that's more than plenty. Also you can save on the CPU as the FX 8320 is the exact same as the 8350.

  5. Okay thanks guys. I changed the ram and the mobo. But what would be a good cpu cooler thats around 30 bucks? Maybe less. And ksham id like to keep the 7970 becuase id get 4 free games with that. Which 2 I might sell and get money money back.

    Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo or hyper 212+ are great coolers and cheap.
  7. Okay so this is it. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/16dS5
    Would it be able to play games on high/ultra? And also would it have any problems recording?
