    refresh i accidentally didn't paste it in
  3. Yes your build is excellent I assume you got the 850W so you can crossfire R9 290 in the future.

    ya probably in the next couple months ill do crossfire. Is there anything i could change that would boost the performance?
  5. Best answer
    I think it is fine as it is but if you want more improvements, it will cost a lot more for a diminishing return though. If purely gaming, i5 is enough but an i7 is something to consider especially if video editing or streaming.

    what monitor should i get for this build what resolution would work?
  8. The R9 290 is excellent at 1080p and 1440p. At crossfire, consider 4k monitors (but look carefully for 60Hertz 4k monitors)
