Thank you CPU-AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor $199.98 Motherboard-Crosshair V Formula-Z ATX AM3+ $229.99 Ram-Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory $84.99 Storage Storage- Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive $74.99 Video Card GPU- EVGA GeForce GTX 670 4GB Video Card $449.99 Power Supply-Corsair Professional Gold 750W 80 PLUS Gold Certified ATX12V / EPS12V More about : amd build Outlander_04 November 23, 2012 6:44:31 PM If this is for gaming then you are way overkill on the RAM 2 x4 gig is more than enough I would also use a cheaper motherboard . All boards with a 990FX chipset will perform identically . Spend $100 less , and use the money you save to get yourself a Samsung 128 gig SSD as a boot drive If thats the EVGA graphics card with the reference cooler with a single centrifugal fan then avoid it . Buy one of the later models from Gigabyte/ASUS/ etc with multiple fans Quieter and cooler You will need a 600 watt power supply m 0 l burntpizza November 23, 2012 7:09:48 PM At that price might as well pay for a radeon hd 7970. Here is one thats $389, got triple fans and is cloced at 1.0 ghz. It is much faster than gtx 670. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00752QYLK/?tag=pcpapi-20 Ill leave this one here, the comparison http://www.hardocp.com/article/2012/11/12/fall_2012_gpu... m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
