More about 800 gaming build good
  1. Plus the OS it adds up to 867$
  2. Best answer
    a 600 watt power supply is overkill for a 750 ti that only requires a 300 or 400 watt.
  3. for a non overclock build i would go this route

    $12 over but has an SSD(helps with loading times etc so will look nicer when recording)

    Tell me what you think, The GPU/PSU/Case all improved.
  7. in a few words

    it kills it

    this a AM 750ti and getting out performed by almost 20 fps by a stock 760

    the 760 i linked is one of the best you can get with a high factory clock
