gaming and video capture from my xbox

I know nothing about video capture from a console. But I imagine it no more demanding than actually gaming.

For gaming, you want an intel CPU. i suggest the i5 6500 or similar.

This is because the single core performance of the intel CPU provides much better gaming performance than the many weaker cores of the AMD chip.

You do not need 32gb of RAM.

You will need a better PSU.

The NexG isn't a good PSU, the FX 8350 has a bad bang for your buck. The cooler has be replaced. What is this build for?
