Guys please help me build my own gaming RIG, I'm planning to buy i7 4770k with Asus GTX 780 Ti and G.skill trident X 16GB memory or FX-8350 with Asus GTX 780 ti and G.skill Trident X 16GB

Motherboard: Maximus VI formula for i7 or Crosshair Formula-Z for AMD?

Which do you think is better RIG that i mentioned? sorry for my bad english..

The i7 4770k is the better processor but is much more expensive, but you need to decide whether you need all that power and whether you are happy to spend that money for that extra power.

Is your budget less then $650? Go AMD. Is it more then $650? Go Intel.

If you have the money to spend go for i7 4770K! 16GB RAM is a bit overkill if you're only gaming

The I7 is the better processor hands down. If you can afford it, use it.

In my opinion if its just for gaming and a bit of programming which im pretty sure is not that CPU intensive lol then go with the 8350 and save yourself some cash since you are a college student.

16GB for gaming/programming gives you bragging rights only, but if you have the money to spend, go crazy lol
The 4770K will be more than enough for a couple of years, and with the 780Ti (you can SLI later on) you'll have a powerful beast, also make sure you grab a SSD for better boot times and loading times


Or tell us how much you have to spend, and we'll give you a nice setup

An SSD (solid state drive) in simple terms is just a very fast hard drive, but it comes at a premium price. I recommend installing your operating system onto an SSD so that when you start up your computer it loads straight away.

100% recommended, it's a storage device (like an HDD) that's waaay faster than a mechanical drive, my pc takes about 15 seconds to boot with Windows 8 :)
