Hello guys,

I already posted in the past a thread similar to this and I wanted to know whether I made good choices in part picking or not.

A person suggested some changes so I went middle term.

Unfortunately I clicked SOLVED and the thread got close, so I would like to still ask do you think this is a good configuration.


Please mind that the cooling system will be nzxt 280 mm fans liquid cooling

Do you think intel is better than amd? Why?

Amd has more power

Is intel more stable?

A lot of people already suggested intel rather than AMD, so I am considering

AMD lacks in performance, quad core Intel as fast as eight core AMD, in single thread tasks i5 beats 8350! even some i3's beat 8350 in single thread performance programs but in heavy multitask programs 8350 is on par with i7 4770!
Also 8350 is an old processor and 990FX is 3 year old chipset!!!

Ok I guess you are right I saw some benchmarks that really changed my mind, here what you think about it now:

32GB RAM and 1250W PSU are kinda overkill but other things looks really solid!
I would recommend you 16GB RAM (Overkill for almost everything) and 850W (enough for two way SLI and hard OC)!
