  6. You recomend i downgrade? if so hows this.

    AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Six-Core Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103962
  7. No dont downgrade just go intel for gaming do a i5-2500k or a i5-3570k

    i5-2500k- cheaper,last generation,overclocks better

    i5-3570k-faster clock speed(only .1 ghz) new generation, more expensive

    i5 2500k is better so it's not a downgrade the GPU i suggested eats the card you picked for breakfast!Look at the non-reference 560 Ti designs, factory OC'd to 900 Mhz. Among them you will find several models that have upgrade dPCB's and beefed up VRMs. The ones w/ 7 phases or more and the special coolers have been known to top 30% overclocks over the reference card speed.

    Some to consider ....




    Asus DCII Cu TOP (900Mhz - 7 phase VRM)
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121425



    Gigabyte OC (900Mhz - 7 phase VRM)

    These cards can go toe to toe with a R7850 sometimes they can beat it.
