I want to build my first computer and and have done some research but can not decided between intel or AMD when it comes to cpu's or Nvidia and AMD when it comes to graphics cards. The only component I am totally fixed on is the define R4 windowed , I absolutely love my friends R4 so that must be included. I also need a a PCI wifi card so include that. I would like to game at high to ultra at decent fps.
Games: Arma III, BF4 and some RTS.
Other uses: Schoolwork, programming, web surfing and maybe a little video editing.
Sites: All from one retailer please
Thanks for all of your suggestions,
Edit: 770 is 330 USD, is it possible to fit that into this build?
Will there be a tangible performance increase if i go with the i5 4430?
There will be a good performance increase if you choose the Core i5-4430 over the FX-6300. If you go for the FX-6300, I advise you choose a card of a lower status, to lower the risks of bottle-necking a high end card.
Okay thanks, one last question the r9 280x is 30 dollars cheaper and since mantel is coming out soon should I consider that card?
Yes. It would be ideal if you are planning to use AMD's Mantle API, as used in Battlefield 4 and future titles. It has the same performance and has an extra 1GB GDDR5 Video memory, for higher tessellation levels and higher screen resolutions. I do recommend it to anyone looking for a high end card on a lower than expected budget.
