Gaming isnt going to need an i7. You wont see a difference. Yet a 760 vs 770, the 770 will yield a great performance increase. Games rarely even utilize 4 cores, theres no way you need a quad core with hyperthreading at the sacrifice to graphics card.

I agree. Getting a i7 for gaming is putting money in the wrong place. A i5 and 770 will easily give higher settings and fps than a i7 and 760.

I really like bignasty's build. But I'd modify a couple things to give cooler temps and a quiet CPU cooler. Also, 650W is plenty for a single 280x. Also, the 280x comes with a free copy of BF4. (best game ever)

The 770 is better according to this:
http://gpuboss.com/gpus/Radeon-R9-280X-vs-GeForce-GTX-7...

They are both very good cards. However I tend to favor nvidia based on experience but newer cards from ati seem to be holding their own much better so I say that brand bias is a wash.

Also based on everything I've seen suggested I made one final modification to your last list adding the memory that bignasty selected as it has lower cas latency than the ones you chose (thus it's slightly faster):

Have fun!

Please don't reference gpuboss. It is horrible and not a real comparison. The best way to compare similar GPUs like the 280x and 770 is from reviews. Find the games you want to play and see how the GPUs compare.

Ex. I love Battlefield series and wanted to see which GPU is better at 1080p. According to this the 280x wins.
http://www.techspot.com/review/734-battlefield-4-benchm...

The 770 was popular choice cuz 280x was overpriced due to bitmining. But now the price is back to normal. So the GPUs are comparable at similar price.

what do you think of this? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/noflow12/saved/4mhW


The RAM I listed above is faster and cheaper. Also, the Asus z87-A gets better reviews than Gigabyte mobo for the same price.

FYI, gold isn't needed. Personally I'd rather a Bronze certified one and a quiet cpu cooler. Noctua makes excellent coolers and allow for good overclocks.

@envy14tpe then what would you recommend referencing; there's actual data for gpu boss. It's a quick reference point without just stating an opinion. Also, the ram, it's faster than what? It's cas 9 at 1600 vs the cas 8 at 1866 that I recommend. So please explain your statements with facts.

Thanks!

If you look at the build the OP posted in his updated link, which I replied to, you'll see that he chose CAS 9 1600 for $76. And I listed CAS 9 1866 for $71. So, as I stated the first time, the RAM I chose is cheaper and has a faster transfer rate of 1866MHz.
