On the scale of 10, I would rate it as 8. You have a good gaming rig, OP.

To be more precisely said, your computer = gaming goddess xD

Your rig is above average for sure, I would agree on giving it in an 8.
In the future the only part to upgrade that would give you any noticable performance is the GPU, memory and cpu is as good as any modern game can really utilize.

You are welcome.

And, really? I've got an awesome PC as well? C'mon, I'm using R9 270X and you've got R9 280 which is far superior to mine.

Well i mean that may be true but yours can easily be overclocked beyond mine and you could maybe even crossfire those and kick some serious ass, lol.

Well, my card is already a factory overclocked just like yours. When it comes to CPU, it's non-k version and my PSU couldn't handle crossfire. Now my PC's cheeks got so blushy haha :p

Yea it took me forever to pick out the CPU and i decided that the best possible bang for my bucks was a $190 Intel Core i5-4590 with HD 4600 iGPU. It is the cheapest for its performance. I have not seen one CPU that can beat this CPU in the $200 range, not including the (K) versions.

Let me be a bit critical here, if I were to follow everybody's scale then the R9 290X would already constitute a 10 and there are still better setups out there, not even mentioning SLi, Crossfire and 4k gaming rigs that are out there.

So even mine is maybe a 7, probably a 6. Yours isn't far behind. I'm sorry to hurt your feelings, but would you prefer that I lie?

Lmao nope, the reason i could not get better parts is because i spent most of my money on Ford Racing 4.10 Gears, a 5.0L top end engine kit, K&N Air Filter, and a sexy new set of Halo`s. Mmmmm

While the OP's rig may not be the best there is it should be able to handle just about any game he/she would want to play. Even though my i5 3570K SLI GTX 670 rig is behind the times I have not had any problems running any game I want. Therefore you should have no problems running any game you want.

5.0L means 5 liters or 302 cu.in. If your Refrigerator has that as an engine for its coolant system than it will make LN2 look like ice cream, lmao.

And yea i never really got into messing with computer components because i live in, well a part of the US where when we go hunting for deer we shoot anything that moves and if it doesn't move, we shoot it anyways. :p  So i`m kinda of a southerner, lmao.

But anyways, i was always stuck with repairing and doing restoration work on vehicles and never really got into working with computers, which is something i have always dreamed of. One day a very sexy 350 Spider came in and it just amazed me of the electronic capabilities it had in it, ever since then i have been so much more interested in the field of Computers.

I know my PC is not a 8/10, more like a 4 or 5. I mean i know it is nothing compared to those $10,000 PC`s out there but i was mainly comparing it to the $600-$900 range of PC`s that normal working people can afford. Although how much i would absolutely (LOVE) to own a GeForce GTX TITAN Z 12GB i would rather use that money for my family and other related things.
