    And kinda underpowered GPU for 1080p.

    The motherboard is far better than the one you had selected. Slightly cheaper RAM, slightly better video card. All in all a little cheaper than your original plan anyway.

    I'd personally go for this second one. I believe Planetside 2 is still heavily reliant on fast single threaded performance (may be wrong, heard something about an update). Generally games will run a little better than on the FX, and you have an upgrade path to i5/i7 if you want it.

    Timing 9-9-9-24.

    And i think that R9 280 is (again) the best bang for the buck gpu right now.
    Just like HD7950 last year...
    Its 2013 again :)
  10. My apologies. But high voltage then :D
  11. I think JOOK-D's idea was the best. By the way JOOK-D it was more for all around so I'd rather go for the and build than the Intel build. I'll change the mb and the GPU from what I had before though. Maximum PC has a great bundle with an SSD that I might look into.

    Does HWMonitor say your CPU/APU temp is 70C when idling but your CPU socket feels cool to the touch? Is Core Temp only reading 10C but it's not possible because your room is 28C? The reason is that these and other 3rd party programs are not interpreting... Read More

    Sure. The RAM isnt the best thing about this build.

    But it has a good cooler and mobo for oc that fx-6300. And a strong 3gb gpu.

    This isnt bad for a $700 gaming build. :)

    SSD usually isnt a good idea in budget-oriented gaming build. Its steals money from gpu. And gpu really is the most important thing in a gaming build: CPU just has to be good enough to keep pace.

    Anyway good luck with your gaming build mate!
