So this summer/fall I will be investing in a thousand dollar gaming rig for gaming and streaming purposes. I will be playing and streaming League of Legends and most likely TitanFall for the heck of it. I have put together an AMD setup that I hope will bring me fulfillment when it comes to FPS stability and graphical finesse. Let's just jump into the components and a little FYI, I've already attempted to make sure these components are all compatible and it took me hours however this is the first time I'm doing something like this so my judgement could be false. So any help would be appreciated!
Here are the components along with some of their NewEgg links to further help you guys out on assessing compatibility!
Any info helps guys, even if it's to replace one of those parts for better quality one however I do not want my budget to increase too much. It's already at $1050 which is 50 bucks above what I wanted. Also, please point out any parts that aren't compatible with the rest as I will find an alternative. This is my first time putting together a rig guys, please be gentle
first of all forget about the octa core amd processor . its a lot better to spend about the same amount of money for an intel i5 (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...).Secondly amd dominates on gpus cause of the price-performance unless u get a titan dont go for nvidia i currently have an saphhire HD7950 and i play league of legends at 110-210 fps with only 4 gb of memory.Then about the stream , the only thing that matters in order to stream is the cpu and ram nothing else so if u go for the i5 above pair it with 6gb - 8 gb of ram and u would be good to go . Good luck on building your first pc and let me now if you have any other questions
Thanks for the insight guys.
@Stacks, I will look into those websites and that build as well. Seems like i5's are better than AMD CPUS. Guess I will re-assess my build
@Kapit, I'm not really interested in HIGH-end products that people buy the first year they come out, however you're right about prices dropping so I might just hold onto my money before investing it.
@Alex Looks like I'll be making the switch to i5 and building my Rig round that CPU. However, I'm considering going with a Radeon R9 270 GPU, what do you guys think?
NONONONONONONONONO DONT EVER GO WITH INTEL AT LESS THAN 1300$ EVER . AMD FX 8320 will do just fine and saves alot of money.... also ur gpu cant handle anything. plus the motherboard is known for over heating and it is very unstable for ram overclocks.
ripjaws are only really good if they are overclocked
and lastly. ur case does not have enough front intake which may lead to hard drive over heating.
