Hello I recently started building a gaming pc
This was my first choice
Intel i5 4570 with msi h87-g43 and nvidia gtx760
But at the same price I am getting
Amd fx 8320 with msi 990fxa-gd65 and Radeon r9 280x
I really like intel-nvidia but amd is giving better value
And also is 650 watt psu enough for these builds??
I wouldn't use the $125 number. I would set it to an i5 or more, which is usualy around $170 at the lowest. For most games an i3 is great, but now that games are getting more threaded and tougher on the CPU (games like ARMA, BF4, etc) the i3 just isn't enough for large multiplayer anymore, and you'll see noticeable slow downs and frame drops, as even though an i3 runs 4 threads, it only has 2 physical cores.
