  1. For what will you use this PC ?
  2. For everything, i mean for games and other stuffs like music, movies etc and office works. I have mentioned all the details in my post including 6 Fans.

    Please help...
  3. For your use Intel is much better choice

    What is your budget and where are you buying ?

    Dont know why you want to use amd for new experience, it will still be the same PC with Intel, you dont get and specail features with AMD nor with Intel, so in my opinion you should always go for best Price/perfromance CPU so that means for your system Intel would be much better choice much better

    In the end you would get much better performance with Intel than with AMD, and Intel is also cheaper all you need it Intel i5 CPU and cheap h97 chipset motherboard, as for fx-8350 you also need expensive 990FX motherboard and aftermarket CPU cooler which Intel doesnt need as stock one is fine.

    Anyway if you go with intel i5 or amd fx-8350, for your system with r9 270X you need 500w or more PSU from Tier 1 or 2

    The one you listed in your build "Seasonic S12II 620" is a good quality PSU (i have the same one) but you can get lower wattage one 520w

    Here you can check for other card how much wattage you need
