$700 gaming PC for a 46" LED tv

Would use it for gaming on my tv and doing homework. Basically just steam games. I would like it to be future-proof and reliable so yeah, constructively criticize away!

Hi. Now whilst I always advocate going the i3 route instead of the amd fx series. Because you stated future proofness wouldn't you want to get atleast an i5?? I understand your graphics card will take a hit, However I think in the long run you would be better off. The Cpu is fine but you stated future proof so i thought I might give you some advice on that. I also would suggest gaming on a monitor because of it's low refresh times over a standard television, However considering you stated specifically for a T.V i doubt you have a monitor anyway those are my thoughts

Would try to get an H97 board if no plans to overclock, not that your CPU can anyways

However considering you stated specifically for a T.V i doubt you have a monitor anyway those are my thoughts

TVs usually have some sort of gaming mode these days, anyways. Puts it at its lowest refresh rate possible to my understanding

Sounds good. Could you suggest a mobo with similar features?

Actually I was looking for h97s and the the z97 has some really good features so I think I'll just stick with it. Thanks!
