Which of these build is best for Gaming, Rendering, and using Virtual Machines?

Hey all,
I am planning on building a new PC. and these are the parts I was interested in buying, the only thing I have so far is the Optical Drive and the Seagate HDD. I will be mostly playing BF4 on Ultra Settings @ 1600x900. I was hoping to maintain a stable 70-80 FPS (No MSAA). I will also be rendering using After Effects and PhotoShop, and using VirtualBox. These are the parts that I am planning on using. Feel free to change it up, but nothing higher than the prices I already have.

All the best,

More about build gaming rendering virtual machines
  1. for battlefield games, amd based system will slightly better..



    for aftereffect , 8350 is slightly better..

    for photoshop, 3570 is slightly better..

    for virtual machine, more cores is better, so 8350 is better..

    3 vs 1, then 8350 setup is better for you..

    ===============

    700 w is too much, even 500w good psu will more than enough to run your system
    but why raidmax?
    Raidmax units are usually bottom of the barrel, lowest quality possible stuff.
    Take a look at Tier 5 here: http://www.eggxpert.com/forums/thread/323050.aspx

    get a better psu..
    SeaSonic S12II 520 Bronze is much better unit than that raidmax..

    Taking that information into consideration, this leaves me at the same price (+1), your answer makes sense (+1). But I am not running at 1080P, I am running at 1600x900. Will the frames be better? And no MSAA..
  3. Best answer
    Battlefield 4 fully utilizes almost all the processor cores optimized for multi-threading..so, in this case, in your resolution and game setting, fx8350 is still better option than i5 3570k..
  4. Thanks a million..
