  4. You will be getting 4-5 celsius cooler and 1-2FPS higher average and save $10 :) I edited your build m0j0. 4690k has better thermal paste and is 0.1 ghz faster and is exactly the same price. Also 750w was more than enough so I got 650w. 550w is good enough even, except that leaves little upgrade space.

    I got 750 cuz of SLI
  6. I will need a new monitor soon because ill be using my 32 inch 1080p flatscreen which is just way too large. Its not a priority because I want to spend as much of my money on performance for games. In terms of OS, windows 7 or 8? Ive got both but im not sure which one will be better
  7. Windows 7 is easier to use, i dont have Windows 8 so i cant say much about that, and as for the monitor, R u trying to include that in ur $1000 or can you increase ur budget a little bit.
  8. These builds look great. I just reseached the 3690k and I see thats its a refresh and its the same price which is great. Can the motherboard do good overclocking? Im also excited about the 770. Thanks so much
  9. I wont include it in my budget because im fine to play with the 32 inch for 2 months before I have enough for a solid 60hz monitor. Ive heard that windows 8 may be better because it has more updates coming etc
  10. You'll be running most games at ultra settings 1080P 60 FPS :) Except for Watch Dogs ..... even dual r9295x2s can't run it smooth. How about the Asus 1080P monitor? Also if you're going to get windows 8 I heard you should get 8.1 because of some windows 8 issues. So I recommend just windows 7? Well it's up to you.
  11. Okay. Got it. Thank you all for the help, I love this community.
  12. No problem, we're happy to help :)
