So I decided to go with the 8350... I know it is worse at gaming than the I5 but it is very good at streaming, editing software, recording, etc. and with them being on sale right now, it's practically a done deal. Rolling the dice on the steamroller architecture for a possible upgrade in the future and games favoring AMD architectures due to nextgen consoles.
I currently have a GTX 770 Gigabyte Windforce OC
Please only Amazon/Newegg!

Is there a way to improve the build in anyway? Thank You!
