Solved

Hey, I need help with my first pc build!!!!

Ok so I want this build

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/V6JRHN

I need to know if this build is futureproof and if is the best I can get for my budget $800. The mobo is good??? Or is better to go with the msi h270 pc mate???

All i want is to play all games in 1080p 60 fps and I plan to do crossfire in the future is possible with this build???

Is overclocking worthy?

If any of you have a better build on the 800 price range pls notice me

Thanks guys!!

  1. Need a Z board and a K chip to overclock, so this will not overclock. x16 and x4 works for crossfire. Your case selection is fine, but if this was a 4 slot matx case a 2nd graphics card would not fit being 2 slot. The heatsink and fan would go into slot5 hanging over the edge of the board.

    OC & SLI/CF compatible is going to go well over your $800 range. The PSU you picked is lower quality, this is what I'd recommend for your budget.

    This is what I'd recommend if you want to overclock and eventually run a second RX 480 8gb.

    Remember though SLI/CF doesn't always scale the best depending on resolution/game and your always better off getting the best single GPU you can afford.

    Don't go with a 100 series board go with a 200 series board to avoid any BIOS issues.
