I am upgrading my PC! (PC Specs: (I bought a prebuilt, and then upgraded) Graphics Card: GTX 650 (SuperClocked) Processor: AMD APU 3850 Power Supply: 750 watt ThermalTake Ram: 8 gigs of a random brand Hard Drive(s): 465 Internal, 1TB External)

I am planning on upgrading to this: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/RobotCactus/saved/Qc9tt6

As you can see, the HardDrive and the PSU are missing, I am planning on transfering those.

I mainly stream and do gaming. Tell me your thoughts!

Get a gigabyte 970a ud3p. It's cheaper.

With the money saved, you could get a r9 280.

You also have enough money to add on a CM Hyper 212 evo for overclocking if you're going to do that.

I have no clue on the HDD, but the PSU is a Thermaltake 700 watt.

I wouldn't use either. Especially the power supply.

This build right here can hold up to Livestreaming?

Why wouldn't you use the power supply?

I stream occasionally @720p 60fps 3500bit rate with minimal problems with a 8350 + r9 270. Dropped frames that I get are usually from my connection being a bit wonky at times.

As for the cpu you selected, I suggest getting an aftermarket cooler and overclocking.

The motherboard is a good motherboard for overclocking. If you don't really wanna overclock much, at least get it to 4ghz to match the fx 8350.

I do agree with i7baby in getting a higher quality PSU, even if it outputs less wattage, it's build quality is more important.

Try a Seasonic 520, XFX 550 or Antec HCG 520M

Are you sure a 550 watt power supply is enough? I think I might just buy a prebuilt...
