I'm building my first gaming PC very shortly and would like opinions and input on this spec list. I spend the vast majority of my time playing BF3 and plan on doing so with BF4, the PC I have now is now struggling with just basic tasks so Its time to rebuild.
My original plan was to build with a i5-4760k and a Nvidia 770. I have changed my mind to go with a AMD FX-8350 and spend the saved money on a better motherboard.
As many of you will know EA have sided with AMD for BF4 and upcoming frostbite3 engined games, therefore BF4 will be getting optimised for AMD stuff. BF is certainly more intense in the GPU department so this really made my head spin - do I go for what seems the more powerful Nvidia 770 or the seemingly lesser but optimised AMD 7970???? At the moment I'm thinking the headroom of the 770 will do me best but I just need my mind putting to rest please!!
Any info or help would be greatly appreciated :)
