  1. Personally, I would spend the extra to get a 4690k to have a much better experience overall. Though that's not a bad price on that PSU I think you could go with something like a 550 or a 600 for cheaper and sink that money in to getting a nicer motherboard or switching out to and Intel build.
  2. That build is nice. The only thing I would say is upgrade to a 990 chipset motherboard (optional) and get an SSD for way faster boot times and use the hard drive for mass storage (again optional)
  3. Best answer
    Really good looking build, you will enjoy all games at ultra settings, and that powerful CPU will allow you to edit video and many other things.
