  1. What is your max budget? For gaming builds, I would recommend an intel build.

    If i do an Intel Build then i can only get an i5-4440 and a R9 270X and all the other parts
  3. True.
  4. The motherboard in build 2 is known for overheating and catching fire. Change it for sure if you go that route.

    What if i use the same motherboard as in build 1?
  6. That motherboard is better. Not awesome for overclocking or anything, but for stock clocks will be perfectly fine and reliable.

    The gtx760 and r9 270x are VERY close in performance. The 760 is only like 2-6% better. There will not be a noticeable difference between the cards.
