I really do not know what to choose for the CPU and GPU?Help?

Well, I was building a mid-high range PC for about 900$ and these are the parts I have chosen.
Asus M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ Mobo
Corsair Builder Series CX600 PSU
G.SKILL RipjawsX 1866MHz 2x4gb
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU Cooler
1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200RPM 64mb
And the big question is :
AMD FX-6300 + NVIDIA GTX 760 or AMD FX-8320 + AMD R9 270x?
I really do not know which one to choose.
and which case should I get? i just want a simple black mat case that everything will fit into for as cheap as it is possible :)
I will be playing Crysis 3, Battlefield 4, and other games. I would like this computer to last at least 4 years, so I would be thankful for some suggestions with all the parts.

  1. Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 seems to be a overall better card from benchmarks.
    If AMD Mantle interest you, in which we don't know how much of a improvement it will really make, you might one to swing for the R9 270X.
  2. I think you should get FX 8320 + R9270x.
    crysis3 and bf4 are cpu exhaustive games and 8320 is way much powerful than 6300.
    So it will come in handy
  3. Since few games can use more than 2-3 cores, I would pick the FX-6300 and the stronger GTX760 graphics card.

    You are wise to spend your budget on parts vs case.
    Here is a reasonable one:

    If your games are cpu intensive, consider spending a bit more in a Intel quad.
  4. Fx 6300 or fx 8320

    I5 3570k or i5 4570k

    Gtx 760 or 770 or you can pick up a gtx 750 next month
  5. So if I get the gtx 760 combo, will i be able to play new titles for at least 2 years? If not, suggest something what would improve my build, but not increase the price for more than 50$.Thaanks btw!
  6. And is the PSU too much? I dont think ill be SLI or crossfiring anything in close future.
  7. Best answer
    Gtx 760 should be able to handle games on High to Ultra settings 45-60fps no problem for the next two years.

    Psu is good to, just the right balance, me personally I wouldn't go down any lower.
  8. OP i have the same PSU except mine is modular. Also i have a gtx 760. Runs perfect! Youll love the gtx760. Great performance for the price
  9. Personally I would not go with a CX PSU form Corsair. They have poor quality capacitors with fail easily under the smallest amount of heat. I lost most of my first PC build to a cx600.

    Look at XFX550. It is MUCH better quality and around the same price.
