    very good build

    it is alternative revision of your build
    better PSU, 430 is barely enough for gtx 760. go for a good 550W psu
    Radeon 270X, the price goes down, will make a complete AMD build

    How do you think the 270x compares to the GTX 760 in performance? Is there any board you would recommend over the biostar?
  3. ^ 270X is slightly below GTX 760
    but with mantle technology that will be optimized with future gaming
    the price gap $40, you can cut from that

    the appropriate board for FX 6 cores is ASUS M5A97 (not LE version). but it is costly
    anyway, unless you heard something bad about this biostar mobo, stick with it

    Sorry about all the Questions but would you recommend windows 7 or windows 8/8.1 for this build. I haven't build a pc since 2007 when Vista was my option.
