    This build is much much better for the price of your build.. :D
    I recommend this,. :)
    Things changed:
    Better processor, faster graphics, faster RAM, CPU cooler included, better motherboard, better case, and more efficient PSU, all these for the price of your build. ;) :D :)

    And, Mr. Baumy15, no need of downgrading the GPU, you can upgrade the GPU and upgrade the CPU as well!(my build given) :p
  4. Nice build, I'd put the i5-k on a Z series mobo though, and probably a bit more juice than a 550w, just because that will be running the PSU pretty hard, especially with an OC.

  5. Here is a build with better mobo, faster ram, (not efficient PSU-80+bronze), but with much cheaper and same performance graphics:

    The graphics has been changed to a GeForce GTX 770 as there is no much difference between r9 290 and the gtx 770, the r9 290 is only a very little better than the gtx 770, but it's much more costlier than the gtx 770.
    :D ;) :) :vip:
  6. @SuperAdithya I think the first build you suggested was better, as I said with a PSU and mobo change it's really good. With the build you just posted, if it's only for 1080p there is no need to get the 4gb version of the 770, the 2gb version would be fine. Also the R9 290 is more like a 780 but much cheaper, the R9 280x is close to the 770 and again also cheaper. In the higher end AMD has better performance at a cheaper price, not the opposite, although as you go into higher end you are getting less performance increase for you dollar. Also the PSU you posted in your first build was better quality than the one in your second build.
  7. Yo @byza, you're right.
    My 1st build is better. But instead of H97 guard pro, he can increase his budget a little and can go for a much better Asus Z97-P mobo :D.

    yea but the cpu is useless its just wasted money in your build you NEED a Z97 motherboard to overclock that prosecor and you know what you have him a H97 with is only good at overclocking the G3258...
