Hey everyone, I'm finally done with consoles. Figured I'd try my hand at building a pc. This is the build I came up with. Everything seems to be ok (I know the gpu could be better), but I figured I'd ask someone with experience. I built it with OC in mind for the future but I'll prob wait a bit. As of now though if it can play most current games on high with a good FPS then I'll be happy. If I don't have to upgrade anything aside from the GPU for a few years then I'd be content.
Questions: GPU- Is that the best GPU for the price range or is the GTX750Ti better? Mobo- How is it? There's a deal at micro center, if you purchase a qualifying cpu you get $40 of your mobo. Got it for $89. I went home and looked at the reviews and I'm a bit worried. There seems to be a high failure and doa rate. Any other z97's around 90-120 that I could replace it with? PSU- PC Partpicker has the wattage around 370, so I know 600 is overkill but for $34 it's a steal. And allows me alot of breathing room when I OC and upgrade the GPU.
Thoughts, opinions? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
