Hello,

Was throwing some parts together for an AMD build, primarily gaming/ all purpose as well, and wanted to hear some input from you all. Any input is appreciated.

Case: Antec Three Hundred Illusion Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

GPU: MSI R7850 Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC Radeon HD 7850 2GB OR GIGABYTE GV-R787OC-2GD Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB

HDD: Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

Motherboard: ASRock 970 EXTREME3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

DVD-RW: SAMSUNG DVD Burner 24X DVD+R 8X DVD+RW 8X

Motherboard: MSI 970A-G46 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX
I don't know motherboards all that well, however this would seem to work fine and can't beat cheap (unless it's crap)

CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo)


PSU: Rosewill RP600V2-S-SL 600W ATX12V v2.01 SLI Ready Power Supply

Was debating loading OS off a SSD as well, if the budget permits it.

Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.

For a 7850, get the FX-6300, it will not bottleneck the 7850, with the price difference between the two, i'd get the 7870 tahiti le(7870XT from power color).
Also try to fit a new psu, there's the rosewill green 530 for ~54$ in amazon.

Ok, cool. Checking online, the MYST edition appears to be out of stock, however a Gigabyte 7870 seems adequate enough when comparing the two benchmarks.

no that is the pitcarin version which has less shaders and less performance but also a very nice card only less powerfull

Well, that card is a good one, but it's a standard 7870, i'd get the 7870 tahiti le if possible, if you can wait for the card to be on stock again.
