Opinions wanted on mobo and gpu (gaming build)

Hello !

After few days on this website, I've decided to build my own gaming machine. I did look around the forums & found similar build for my needs.

I will basically play heavy game on high quality and settings.

  • I am not planing on OC.
  • my pc will run on dual monitors.

Im getting intel i5-4460 & as for motherboard, it's Gigabyte G1.SNIPER H6 and gpu, Sapphire Radeon R9 280 3GB Dual-X.

I really like the mobo but is this mobo good? And I'm not sure abt gpu. Because it's an a OC gpu & I'm not planing on OC.. or it will be just fine?

My budget for both mobo and gpu are $330 max and if under it would be great as long it can handle any heavy games and support 2 monitors with 2 difference games on each monitors (mostly will use my 2nd monitor for my mmorpg games like WoW.) without any problems.

Just in case, this is someone else build but planing on doing exactly the same.

this RAM kit is less expensive and actually faster

This R9 285 will run you $3 less and do a bit better

Though, if you can somehow dump $30 more into the mobo/gpu budget you could probably grab a R9 290 :p

2 different games on each monitors

hardcore right there; I'm not even kidding.

Haha, will mostly vending on my mmorpg.

Noted, will take your advice on ram. Can you suggest me only from these manufacturer : MSI, Asus, sapphire, and gigabyte for gpu?

I can personally recommend Gigabyte and I've really only heard good things about MSI and ASUS though I've noticed this trend

Gigabyte tends to have the most performance, more noise

MSI seems to be the middle man

Asus tends to lean on the quieter side but with lesser performance

Gigabyte is way to go I guess.. since im not really care about the noise. Or msi maybe.

Hmmmm... Are you willing to splurge a little bit for a 4690K? Just an opinion..

That will go way over my budget.
