  1. Best answer
    That build looks good and you will get a lot of fps just because of the GTX 970. Not much to change, but if you do want to lower the price of this build I would recommend a AMD FX8350 CPU (don't forget to change the motherboard also if you go down this path). Its really up to you, but other than that, this build looks pretty good. Though, the part that I would change out of this build would be the PNY Geforce 970. The reason being, there are better GPU manufacturers like EVGA. Try to get a EVGA 970 because they only manufacture Nvidia cards which is a plus. It will be a bit more expensive, but would be worth it.
  2. seems fine to me , don't change the cpu xeon is fine and better

    Its definitely better, but the reason i mentioned it was because he is on a budget build. I did say if you just want to lower the price go for it, never said it was better.
  4. Yeah I orginaly had a gigabyte windforce 970 it think is what its called so I'll just change back to that
