Crossfire Ready Mid-Budget Gaming Computer

Good afternoon!

I am in the market for a new gaming rig. No pre-mades (unless it's a helluva deal), I'm doing this one myself.

My aim is a crossfire-ready mid budget (700$) gaming computer. I'd like to keep the crossfire capability so I can double up on graphics cards in a few months after the price dips a bit.

My current build : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qVZj

  1. I would go with an i5 instead.

    You want 1600 speed RAM

    Don't get a 6870. Its previous generation. Get a 7870 or 7850 instead.

    You don't need a sound card. Most onboard is better than any cheap sound card.

    Get a PSU from a reputable company such as Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair.
  2. Thanks for the tips!

    How's this:

  3. Looks just fine. Make sure to get this mobo: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/asrock-motherboard-z77pro3 so you can overclock your processor.
  4. also get a coolermaster hyper 212 evo instead of the cooler you have now. It will do a perfectly fine job and its like $30.

    To be safe for long term upgrades, I personally just purchased a 750w evga PSU and its great since my 600w Corsair was pushing the limits on the power.
