This is a build that I want to make for myself so that its good enough to play most games now on higher settings at 1080p at close to 60FPS, and a chance to Crossfire another graphics card for a ton more performance later when I need it. I wasn't sure whether or not to go with the R9 270X or the 7870 GHz edition because I heard the 270X is newer and the same but a bit better, but I can get a 7870 GHz edition for around $70 cheaper, so help me out! Is This a good build for that? I can overclock to get more FPS if necessary. ALSO: I have the BELKIN F5D9230-4 Wireless G Plus MIMO Router (its a touch old but works well enough). Would the wireless adapter in this build work with that? Thanks! PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant / Benchmarks
You can. They're the same card essentially. Get the HD 7870 for $130 and spend that $70 saving on a better motherboard and a good aftermarket CPU cooler, to cool the CPU down faster.
Thanks for the suggestion!
With a lot of great sales going on now, I decided to keep most of the setup I have in this list, and switch out the 270X with the Asus R9 280X, and add a Cooler Master heatsink and currently, the build is still less than $70 more. Thank you for the suggestion!
