Hi all, i am building my first pc and intend to use it as my desktop and would like decent gaming capabilities. I have already bought a Gigabyte radeon 7870 2gb oc edition for my gpu but the rest of the parts i still need to buy. Here is my plan:
Cpu: AMD Fx-8350 (plan to oc to 4.5 Ghz or whatever i can stable)
Mobo: m5a99fx pro 2.0
Cpu cooler: Coolermaster hyper 212 evo
Ram: Gskill Ripjaws 8 Gb 1866 (2x4Gb)
HDD: 1Tb WD Caviar Blue
Case: Rosewill Challenger
Psu: 700 watts
Any critiques or suggestions would be appreciated. I also am not sure if there are any bottlenecks in this build.
it is very popular, but the majority of it is for stock/mild OC. There are benchmarks of a hyper212 on a 8320 where the cpu is up in the 90s and throttling its frequencies. you'll need more performance.
