So lately I've been thinking about upgrading from my dell C521 with an Amd Athlon X2 6000+ a 9500 Gt and 5 gb of ram (Which can run games on lowest settings 20-30 fps) to this system: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/2L1jz I was wondering how this PC will preform compared to my pc I now own. I haven't added Dvd drive, Hdd or screen because I already have one. If I do end up getting this PC I'll most likely upgrade it to a Gtx 770 or 780 possibly even one of the 800 series cards. I was just wondering how you think this PC will run games like Planetside 2, Battlefield 4, Cod ghosts, Arma 3, Minecraft and anything else I might pick up during a steam sale. I am by no means trying to get this PC to run these games on max until I add a few extra upgrades.

I was just wanting to know your guys opinions on this build and what the value is for the money,



Thanks In advanced,
Austin

I've got my rig built about the same as yours and the gfcs card you have in it is adequate to play most demanding games on max(Giving you sped up the base clock and memory bus, which my PS is to small to do now and the gfcs card runs fine). One thing I would change is the stick of ram, I would go two channel ram, because even though it takes up an extra slot Its snappier now. And, instead of getting a 780, get a second 660 and put them in SLI.

Hope this helped! :) 

Regards, Mason.

Hallo Austin,
I dont thing that Flippi build is ok. That motherboard have an old chipset and its hard to update the bios if you dont have a CPU with old chipset, also the PSU... I would get 620W for r9 270. There is that build that i think is the best, also do you like APUs? I mean do you play hardcore games like Battlefield, Crysis and etc? If not i will leave and another build there :


CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 760K 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor ($89.98 @ OutletPC)

Power Supply: SeaSonic 620W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($79.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $684.82


If you want better gaming performance and longer life, you will have to spend a little bit much. 1st build

The build with the APU, not that bad, possibly update at the future.
I hope you like some of them, you can downgrade to 760 and to fit in your budget, but do not downgrade the PSU. Seasonic is one of the best PSU makers.

I hope i helped.
