(Generated by PCPartPicker 2012-11-11 17:36 EST-0500) The power supply and case listed should be much more reliable than the ones you picked out. You'll want to put more money into your graphics card and less into your CPU if you're going for pure gaming performance. If you're overclocking (I don't see any other reason why you'd get a 970 motherboard over a 960) and you want to stick with AMD, I'd suggest you get a different cooler. m 0 l funkygrunt017 November 11, 2012 8:45:18 PM im more so into mmorpgs then fps and etc, but i do play games like dark souls. are you sure that cpu will be able to handle it? m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
