hey guys what do you guys think of this build? for me there is nothing more satisfying is when i click on a application and it instantly opens up. will this be super blazing fast or should i lower the gpu for a better cpu? will this run flight simulator x on max setting? http://pcpartpicker.com/p/K9tmQ7

If you can invest a tiny bit more money, go for this.

The GPU will perform better when paired with the 8320 compared to the 6300.

can we start a conversation i have a few questions to ask? like do i really need a expensive gpu like this one? or get like r9 280x?

If you want to stick with a 6300 (which I totally understand), the 280x will do great in this situation, as well as save you a bit of dosh to put towards an SSD, which will greatly improve load times.

actually i personally really wanted the 8320 but im a college student and my budget is really tight. i mainly will use this for my school and games such as flight simulator x and war frame. i just want something that will allow me to max out everything and play comfortably without over killing anything. and of course super fast load times.

Alright, so I reformulated the parts list to fit under 800, have quick load times, and be able to high/ultra some-most games.

Added an SSD, replace 970 with a 280x (Budget reasons) and made some other changes to save on costs.

If you want to do a sub-$1000 build, I can open the door to new opportunities haha.
