Hi guys. My name is shahin and I wanted some advice about my build/ upgrade...
To start off with, I currently have an FX-6350, a 2 TB toshiba HDD, and a blu-ray burner optical drive.
I also have a budget of $1,120 excluding the parts I already have.
Ive done a lot of research on the following products and wanted your oppinions, so here we go...
CPU: AMD FX-6350
MoBo: Asus M5A99 FX Pro 2.0
RAM: G. Skill Ripjaws X Series 16 Gb 2133
GPU: Gigabyte windforce 3x GTX 770 2 Gb
Case: CM Storm Stryker
Cooler: Corsair Hydro series H100i
PSU: Corsair RM series RM850
Case fans: Corsair Air series CO-9050016-WLED 120mm fans
So theres my build that im getting... any opinions or changes I should make?

How exactly is that a better build? It uses a quad core processor, and 8 gigs of 1600 ram...

Cause the I5 is a more powerful CPU than the 6350. http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core-i5-4670K-vs-AMD-FX-6...

As for the 8gb of ram is all you need if you were building a gaming pc. If you going to be doing video editing or streaming then I could see going with 16gb of ram. No current game even comes close to even using 8gb of ram and it would just be a waste of money. Overall there is nothing wrong with your build. I was just giving advice. With that kind of money you were putting into the fx 6350 build you could build a way better system. Why not get a 8320 or 8350 if you want to stay with AMD.
