  1. Looks pretty good, no bottlenecks, if not thinking future XFire, could drop the PSU some
  2. Best answer
    it is a revision with better parts at similar price
    ram
    cpu cooler
    no need 3rd party thermal paste
    better 280X (newegg combo)
    platinum PSU (on sale)

    -Downgraded to a FX-8320. You can easily overclock the 8320 to 8350 levels. Additionally, apart from the processor itself being cheaper, there's a combo deal with the 8320 and Asus M5A97 R2.0 at NCIX for -$75! Great combo deal.
    -Added a SSD.
    -Corsair 300R is on a great sale, making it the same price as the HAF 912.
  4. Looks good, would go the Asus 280X, that's the one I picked up (great cooling and OCing), might go 1866/9 for the DRAM (running about the same price as 1600 and about tops for the FX CPUs.
  5. how many frames do u think this will get on bf4?
  6. At 1080p, these builds should max out BF4 at more than 60fps.
  7. OCed, prob in the vicinity of 60
  8. thanks guys i think i will end up going with amd radeons's build. Ill probably order it around thanksgiving/ cyber monday
