Hey TH community, i have always been ghosting my way through these forums and am finally deciding to build my own gaming computer. As of right now i play League of Legends mainly with the occasional mind craft.


So my question to everyone is what GPU/CPU cooler should i get for my build?
i was thinking either 650 TI boost or 660 or R9 270. id love this computer to last and since money is tight at the moment i could always upgrade from my i3 to i5 in future but id love to get a good GPU before it all that will not bottleneck my i3-4130.

ALSO is my i3-4130 set up even good with the list of items that i have in the PC parts link?

comments/concerns are much appreciated, Thanks again in advance everyone !!

Your build looks good and compatible. The R9 270X is slightly faster than the 660. If it was strictly between those two, I would go for the R9270 because it's new and will only get better with driver updates.

Hey heironious, thanks for feedback ! I might just look into the r9270 seeing how it just came out but around 25$ more.

How do you feel about my PSU @600W for my whole build. The item is on sale so id love to jump on that.

HD 7850 is the best bang for your buck at this time

HD 7950s are dipping down in the $170-180 range making them incredible values for that price point.

Wow 7950s dipping down to 170-180. When do you think that would happen? Sounds like a damn good deal !

But my friend is selling a brand new in box EVGA gtx 660 2g for 150$. Very enticing price
