Please Help Rate this CPU+GPU+Mobo Combo

CPU: AMD Athlon X4 760K (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113348&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=)

Mobo: ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+ (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

GPU: Radeon R9 270X (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131571&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=)

This is all generally for gaming. I'm deciding on these first before buying the rest of the parts for my first build. I know that I could probably upgrade the CPU more, but considering how this computer's main role will be for gaming, I have decided to spend more money on the GPU than the CPU. This combo costs about $360, more or less, and I can't really spend any more money on these parts...Will this be good enough for games such as Call of Duty Ghosts, BF4, etc.?

  1. CPU: Pretty good, one of the best for that socket type IMO.

    MOBO: I have the ITX version of this board, and it works like a charm. The bios is also very user friendly. It also plays well with the CPU that you chose.

    GPU: A bit overkill when paired with your CPU. You may want to consider bumping the GPU down a bit in order to prevent bottlenecking.
  2. Please stop making duplicate threads.
  3. Sorry, I thought that my other thread didn't go through. That's why I tried submitting another one.

    Shall I just go with the R7260X?
  5. The 260x is significantly worse than the 270x.

    I recommend trying to get a 270x and an fx6300.

    What he said, 270x is a good match for your CPU I would imagine. You wont be able to get an fx6300 due to your current fm2/fm2+ socket type though as far as I'm aware. I would still keep the CPU you mentioned, just because it is more current, and the AM3+ CPU's will be phased out sooner or later. It's always better to stay as current as possible when building a new PC IMO. However, it is entirely up to you.
