I'm stuck between the AMD vs. Intel thing for my build I am doing for christmas. I plan to play games like... Arma 3, Skyrim, Rust, Civ 5, and possibly far cry 4. I plan on high settings on one monitor with a good price to performance ratio(gotta keep it cheap). I also enjoy watching some youtube videos while I game. but no major multitasking. I have already bought the r9 280 and windows 8. Also I am having a 120gb SSD given to me. Which build do you think would do better in current games? And what is yours thoughts about how long the builds would last and which would you choose?
AMD- Plan to overclock but not directly after build. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Brandino312/saved/Vm7ypg
Intel- Overclocking only if needed later on. http://pcpartpicker.com/user/Brandino312/saved/tCMmP6
Any suggestions welcome!
