Here is my potential first build mainly for gaming. Figured I could cut down the RAM to 8gb, but just need on opinion on overall build optimization. Any tips would be appreciated.
What kind of use ?
Gaming ? If you re not playing bf4 on huge maps (example) :
RAM overkill until you drop to 8 gb RAM like you wrote
Motherboard : Paying too much
Case : paying too much except if you really like it
PSU : Overkill but all depends of what kind of gpu you want.
CPU: went with this one because while overkill i figured it would handle anything i threw at it or would eventually.
RAM: yup. For sure dropping to 8
Motherboard: thanks. Wasnt too sure on this. Any suggestions?
Case: I like the look. But I might end up getting a mid.
PSU: Thanks for the input. Looking into a new one now.
Here's is a better bang for buck
Looks more reasonable to me cost-wise. Only question I have is why would you go with the intel cpu in this over the amd in the other?
Intel gives more performance/ core, but AMD has more cores for less money. Intel is better in gaming performance.
Pretty much what meawa123 said but Intel has a better performance per core and gets better performance in games, the only real reason to go with AMD is for a lower budget, or for rendering.
Okay sounds good to me. Thanks for your input!
