im starting to get more into pc gaming and i want a upgrade form the bad laptop i play on now to a nice gaming rig. ill be playing games like bf3 (and bf4 when it comes out), planetside 2, minecraft, and eve online.
budget is $800
so here are the specs:
AMD FX-8350 Processor
Gigabyte GA-970A-D3 Motherboard
EVGA GTX 660 4GB SuperClocked
8GB kingston hyperX blu 1333MHz
62GB sandisk SSD
1TB Western Digital Caviar Green Hard Drive
500W Corsair CX500 Power Supply
Corsair Carbide 200R Case
total on amazon: $781
could you give advice on changes to make or if you could tell me the kind of fps i would get on these games maxed out at 720p that would be great!
Drop thE 60g Ssd it to small even for the os. You want a 120g drive as min for your os drive. With your gpu look for a 650 or 750w power supply. There a cosair 750tx for 59 on parts picker. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Smorizio/saved/
Intel is better. And same price for the build. So AMD is not cheap. No point to buy anything else than intel.
AMD CPU is best to put in yard. It is suitable for use as a fertilizer.
Remember that you can buy a good CPU cooler later. And then you can overclock that K CPU so take it.
This is only 30 $ and with this you can OC that 4670k and get good overclock performance boost out of it. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/cooler-master-cpu-cooler-r...
