You had another forum topic titled "$400 CAD PC" with the same build.

Please, don't make duplicates. Also, delete this topic if you don't need it any more.

I'm pretty sure you posted the build with the i3-6100 there.

It's a good one for that budget. Hopefully, others will pop by and tell their opinion as well. ;)

Did you buy the GPU allready? Or is it an old one? Because if not I'd go for the RX 460. It should be sufficent for your needs. Also get a better PSU, you will thank yourself later. Ram can be switched out for 2x4 GB RAM so you can enable dual channeling.

I want to keep 1 stick because then I could easily put another one in when I need but if I buy 2 stick, I kinda block my path to upgrading it in the future.

Sure if you wanna prepare it for a future upgrade, then go that way.

There are 2 things I don't like about that PSU

  1. It's not 80+ Certified.

  2. It's not semi/fully modular. Trust me that is a pain in the a**. Make sure you're getting atleast a semi modular PSU!

I'd recommend you a power supply that has 550 Watt. That should be enough for an i5 and a GTX 1070 (or even a 1080)

and also like mark said the Gtx 760 2gb seems to be faster than rx 460 4gb

And can you please tell me why the PSU is bad? and I have to switch? I bought the 600W so I can upgrade to an i5 in the future and it has good reviews too.

Thanks mark for the links. Most of the game there like gta 5 were better on the gtx 760. MArk is the PSU good? or should I change. I got that so I can upgrade in the future to an i5 and it also has good reviews.
