I need opinions before I buy this PC. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/SirTrus/saved/jVyqqs

Also, please answer this question; GTX 750 Ti OR the AMD R9 270?

What is this build being used for? If its being use for gaming you should REALLY get a quad core CPU. For the price I would say the R9 270 is ahead of the 750Ti, and you need an OS if you dint have one already. Good luck with the build!

Check out AMD CPU's, you can get a 6 core processor for the price of the intel.

Any CPU with 4 or 6 cores would be fine, but you dont need them if your not gaming.

It appears he get a better (although still Dual-core) cpu, a different Mobo, got a cheaper GPU, (which will make it have lower frames, but more power efficient) and finally got a cheaper (but I think better) PSU. Both builds could be better (a more than 2 core processor for example) but his is more well rounded (although your GPU is quite a bit better)
