This is so awesome. Who was the cable wizard this time? Or did Barry the Cable Wizard had put a spell upon this case too? The RX 480 has some good results here. Pretty awesome!

The Intel stock cooler is sufficient for this build since the processor isn't overclocked.

This is probably the pc i am going to go with for my first build, anyone know how this would perform with bf4 and csgo?

  • 38 months ago

the 480 would destroy cs:go, that game isn't very demanding at all. I'm assuming it would run bf4 well too.

why got the rx480 at $280 , when the gtx 1060 performs way better and maybe $10-$30 cheaper ???

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

The 1060 wasnt out when they did this build hence why theyre only using a reference 480, it doesnt perform "way better" and the prices are near identical on average, this is a builds site we dont need the whole youtube war of nvidia vs amd
