cpu: Intel Core i5-4670

Video card: Sapphire BF4 Edition R9 270X 1020MHZ 2G GDDR5 5600MHZ

Motherboard: ASUS B85M-G

Memory: Corsair Corsair CMV4GX3M1A1333C9 8GB 1X8GB DDR3-1333 1.5V CL9-9-9-24 240PIN DIMM Unbuffered Memory

Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200RPM 64MB SATA 6Gbps 3.5in Internal Hard Drive

power supply:Thermaltake TR2 500W Power Supply Cable Management ATX12V V2.3 24PIN With 120mm Fan

Thanks :)

  1. Total performance 7/10, should run most games. Efficiency for the price- 6/10. You should get 2 sticks of RAM for dual channel, and go for 1600 if you can. You should also go for a non-micro ATX board, as they tend to be underpowered and poorly built.

    You can actually get some great mATX boards these days.

    9/10 - cpu
    7.5/10 - gpu
    7/10 - mobo
    6.5/10 - RAM
    5/10 - psu
  4. Yes there is nothing wrong with a microATX motherboard these days. Dual channel RAM will not make a noticeable difference in this setup either.

    Do you think this motherboard in particular will run efficiently with this setup? I was looking into the difference between ATX and Micro ATX, and it looked like there wasn't much difference beside the size, and the mATX was cheaper.
