I wanna go with this build for gaming.

I have a few concerns

GTX 1060 3GB or Sapphire Radeon RX 480 4GB Video Card ?

Which will last me for the next 4-5 years in gaming they have similar cost and some websites say GTX 1060 3GB is better even though it has less V-ram

i5-6400 or i3-6100 ?

i5 is quad core but most website say i3 is very similar.

For SSD which one do get ?

I want SSD because it will improve the load times and that is the only reason but not sure which one to pick

Building guide

Can anyone link me a good building guide, this is my first ever build so i know nothing. Their is alot of building guides on the internet but i want one that is for the parts i have

When you make changes to the build please keep it very close to $1000 AUD.

  • 1.New AMD cards get better over time, as DX12 and Vulkan are becomming a thing.
  • 2.Both will do, but my guess is the RX 480 will do better
  • 3.The cards function in different ways. The GTX series works like a high frequency needle, whilst the RX works like a shotgun.
  • 4.It depens on the games you play. In some games (DOTA / LOL) the i3-6100 will give you nearly similar frames to the i5-6400, but games that want 4 cores will put out significantly more frames with the true-4-core i5-6400 / 6500.
  • 5.Get 120GB OCZ Trion 150
  • 6.See 5
  • 7.comming soon...
  • 8.comming soon...
  • 9.See 7 and 8
