  1. if you have the money pick up the 280x. some are on combo sale on parts picker right now. if you have the money use a h97 mb and a locked intel cpu. the intel locked cpu are better gaming cpu then amd for the money.
    also most newer case now come with two fans. one in front pulling air in and rear fan blowing out. look at the r200/r300 cosair cases.
  2. If you have a look at Tom's forum guide for determining a build, it'll help you put together the info we'd need to help eg budget, country, use

    If you've got a build list eg PartPicker, post it and we'll review it.
  3. if i did by the 280x would it be worth buying the direct cu ii top version for 40$ more??
  4. that's the link to the build, but some of the things i'm using aren't there.
  5. You should change to fx 8350 and ASRock 990fx Extreme 3 to run a 280x

    For a 270x you need at least 24A on the 12V rail and 500W in total. Get a good power supply per -
  6. why the change of motherboard?
  7. Save money
  8. but what do you think about direct cu ii top for 40$ extra on the 280x

  10. No - its not certified.
