Hello,
My name is Jack and Im building a gaming room. I am very good with PC's but always like to get new opinions. I need this build to play games like BF4 at medium-high at 50fps. I also will be bitcoin mining and would like this PC to be good at that. I do need a monitor and an OS as well! Also I will be making a gaming room and would love ideas on lights, decorations, etc!

Thanks,
Jack

This should run Battlefield 4 at Ultra at around 55-60 fps and Medium-High at around 80 fps:

This should easily run bf4 to 70 fps on ultra. You will later on need to get a cpu cooler if you are gonna overclock but for now, this is the best build for your budget and money.

Make sure you check out my build. We posted our links at the same time. For the gaming room, I would just get some nice gaming posters, I dont really know about too special gaming rooms, Im not an interior designer but having a nice gaming desktop, a 3 way monitor, a water cooled loop rig on the desk and a razer blade pro should do it for around 6000 dollars. But yeah, just a couple of gaming posters and some headphones are good enough

no. no no no no no no no sorry mohammad I have to step in here again. this is a gaming rig not a mining rig you made period. ideally you want a r9 290 at least (most people run several) for mining. this is the best I could do really. (you could drop some stuff and get the 290 if you expand your budget a bit such as lower end mobo no aftermarket cooler 1 4gb ram stick)

If you don't believe me that Nvidia cannon't compete with AMD when it comes to mining do some research you'll learn very quickly(not saying the amd based system will give you the most optimal gaming experience but it will be more then plenty!)

Confused by my gaming rig. Whats wrong with it, it has a 770 which is better then the 290. Now in some cases, the 280x is better and in some cases the 770 is better. Whats the main difference between mine and your build. I will have a better cpu and better gpu http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-290-vs-GeForce-GTX-77...

nono you don't understand spend 10 minutes researching you will come to find out that any amd card will kill anything nvidia has a the same price range for mining period. that's what i'm saying your build is fine for just a gamer. mines for a gamer/miner.

Lol yeah, but I would still get the 4670k instead of the 8320. If you really wanna stick with amd cpu, I would get the 8350. its just 30 bucks more, can overclock higher and is faster.

Its really tough to say especially with more and more games being able to utilize amd's more cores but that being said I also don't know how well mining algorithm's benefit from hyperthreading or if they're able to utilize multiple cores at a time(I know its pratically the same thing BUT Intel's hyperthreading performs better in some situations and AMD more then average(4) processor cores) I'd probably still go with the fx just because. now if he had a higher budget I would recommend any i7 over the fx 9590 or any other amd processor.

honestly I wouldn't be build a new pc at this point unless its really low budget (600-800) especially with those bulldozers coming out soon and nvidia dropping the 880's this year its bound to bring the predecessors down quite a bit. honestly I can see people building 1000$ budget builds with 780s in them by christmas time

Yeah just like emj said, if I were you I would wait for the new technology to come out. Then you will have more money and will have better technology.
