Hello,

After searching for the best parts, i'm finishing up my $600 build. It's pretty much being used entirely for heavy gaming, and internet browsing. I'm hoping I can achieve high+ settings in 60fps, on one 1080p monitor. Looking to make sure this is the BEST performance possible at the BEST possible price.

I just wanted a quick confirmation before i order.

Thanks a lot,

Stephen

is AMD going to give better gaming performance? Thought Intel was going to be better at that, even if its i3 vs 6300

Intel is very price compared to AMD products. Intel focuses on more performance on core stability, etc.. AMD is generally the budget builders, nvidia and amd on the GPU market goes back and forth. I'd suggest looking externally on multiple sites and youtube videos on this topic.

You should be able to run some/most games on high/ultra settings.

The more money you input, the better performance.
