Hey guys, I making a gaming machine for the all the next generation games. Also school work and such, I was looking at this build: AMD FX-8350 OR a i5-4670K, any motherboard that supports either of the 2 CPUs, the best graphics card for the money as well as next gen games, at least a 1 TB hard drive, preferably a SSD, 8 GB of RAM, a 500 W power supply (I assume), any case (Cheap) and a Monitor at least 15". Thanks for the help guys! I am decent but not very good with technology. Also, I reside in Toronto, Canada. So Canada Computers is a ideal place to get my parts.

Thanks for the quick reply, appreciate the help.I agree with the processor, but do i need the cpu cooler as i don't plan on overclocking. I agree with the motherboard, and the RAM, I'll skip out on the SSD but I'll buy one later. The 1 TB is good. The case is awesome! :D  and for the GPU, do you think that will be enough for all next-gen games for at least a year? Lastly, I don't' think I'll be needing a 850W power supply as i wont overclock or SLI/CrossFire in the future. 500W fine? Again, thanks for the help.

That is awesome! A GPU thats lasts 2 years, and I'll go with the cpu cooler you suggested. And since you recommend the 850 W, I'll go with it, who knows what I need in the future. 1 last question, will this GPU run BF4, AC4:BF, Watch_Dogs, and other high end games on High or Ultra? I do appreciate the help. Now I just need a monitor. Are there any that you recommend? Thanks.

the gtx 770 is very good.....but you have to pay 100$ more .... its up to you!
but i suggest you to wait and get the new R9-280X amd gpu , this new gpu is a 7970 boosted and it will cost you appr..300$ so the same price of the 7970
