    This build is very similar to mine, but I have an Asus Radeon 7870 (which is worse); I can run Crysis 3, on high settings with 70 FPS

    Give me a list of games you will be playing.


    BF4, Assassin's creed 4, World Of Warcraft and probably other next gen games at high-ultra.

    The build I listed will play all of them maxed out, 1080p, never dipping below 30fps.
