Parts Preferences: Most preferably AMD, but if I can get an intel i5 for a slightly higher price, and in turn spend a little less on graphics card but get better performance then i'll be happy
SLI or Crossfire: No, I dont think the FX4170 would be able to handle two hd 7870s before bottlenecking
Your Monitor Resolution: Im not completely sure, but under 1500 by 1000
Additional Comments: Play mostly rFactor 2 (I really want to be able to play that maxed out, Richard Burns Rally and all racing simulations, and possibly Mine Craft, which I have no doubt any system can pretty much run
And Most Importantly, Why Are You Upgrading: I have a laptop with Intel HD Graphics and a 1st generation i3, although I will still use it for normal stuff
VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION!: will the Cit Vantage Type-R case fit this configuration, and if so, do you have any idea how this will run rFactor 2?
and will I be able to get a good overclock on the AMD FX4170 and the Sapphire HD7870 2GB with a 750W PSU and those cooling fans, and finally, will the AMD FX4170 bottleneck the Sapphire HD7870 2GB
