PLEASE HERE ME OUT .

OK this is it, I have the money, I have chosen the parts all I need is to buy them.

BUT here is my problem I don't know what to choose. I got so many builds to choose !!

an i5 build, i7,and i3, (all of them have advantages and disadvantages) BUT I CANT CHOOSE ONE.

first I will tell you what I want to do with the PC, ALL I WANT IS TO GAME (I want to play ultra settings I don't want medium (High is good) I want to experience the things I see on the games trailer), PROGRAM and BROWSE.

So i7 is done, i5 and i3 is still here.

I want to record my games, so i3 is done since it can't.... I dunno ? multitask (correct me if I am wrong)

now all its left is i5.
Now I got 2 choices = i5 4440 and i5 4670k (I want to overclock at the next 1-2 years IF AND ONLY IF I GO WITH THE 4670K since i5 4440 cant overclock)

NOW this is where I am confused.

If ever happend to go with i5 4440 I will pair it up with a GTX 770 BUT SINCE MY resolution is very low : 1024*768 GTX 770 is a waste of money, BUT I can buy a 1600 x 900 next 2 years. which I think by that time GTX 770 is like a GTX 460.

SO i decided to buy a R9 270X to pair the i5 4440 and buy a 1600*900 monitor.

but I don't think it will run games at ultra specially crysis 3.

how about keep my monitor and buy the i5 4670k and R9 270x that way I can easily play all games ultra ? right ?

here is the two builds

mATX build
i5 4440
GTX 770
h81 mobo
seasonic M12II 520
8GB

i5 4670k
MSI g43 gaming z8z board
R9 270X
8GB ram
same PSU.

Now what setup should I choose ?

Please next time include budget. But here is a fantastic build that will max alot of games (crysis 3 you'll have to tweak) and laugh at you.

4.92 overbudget. This is about the best I'm going to get you at that price range. The 760 will be adequate for gaming.

My build, I put a little higher quality motherboard in it. It could do watchdogs at max if you put probaly, a 770 in it later on.

Yes.


ok THANKS :) 

but won't a GTX 770 be a waste of money on my resolution ?

edit :

How about a i5 4440 ? the i5 4570 won't cut my budget, the price is high here in my country
