Solved

Is the following build good for gaming and some simple 3d modelling/ photo editing.

My build: http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/mM4Rgs

As per the title, I am about to make a purchase for the following items. Can I get feedback on whether it is a good build. Intend to play games such as Battlefield 4 and Watch dogs on it. I also play the mmo game Final Fantay 14.

Other than gaming, I make video games as a hobby using Unity. I do simple modelling via the software Maya, Blender and Mudbox. Also use photoshop for texturing purposes.

Will this built be good enough to handle these games and modelling processes. Have I accidentally mismatched any of the parts?

My budget was in fact £550 and I have already exceeded about £80. If I could get advise to maybe cut back on some of the pricing for a cheaper replacement with not much effect on the performance would be nice.

Appreciate any feed backs. Would be going ahead to make the purchase probably tomorrow if all is ok. Thanks in advance for help.

    Thanks for trimming the price down. With regards to the build, is it powerful enough to support the mentioned games and 3d modeling? Thanks.
  3. Honestly, it would be alright. Not great, but your budget is too low for a great build for what you want. I really don't recommend the FX at all, but it's not terrible, and I try to refrain from immediately and constantly recommending Intel every single time I see an AMD build, but the truth is, I would rather have an i3 4150 or 4330, and to be even more honest, I probably wouldn't even get anything less than an i5 for those needs even if it meant waiting longer to get it.
