i want to build a good computer amd or intel doesn't matter for around the price of 500-750 dollars (usa) i think a amd 8350 or amd 6300 would be good but like i said intel or amd doesn't matter. this computer needs to be able to stream on twitch, game at least 1080p high, music production, and video editing. OS i want is windows 8.1 that has to be included in the price with a opictal drive.

companys i don't trust pny, shappire, zalmon, antec (not anymore), biostar, Apotop, Pareema, visontek, Thermaltake, and Diablotek.

most trusted company seagate, Western digital, seasonic, corairs, cooler master, a-data, g-skill, team, MSI, asus, asrock, rosewell, nzxt, Fractal Design, lampton, Evga, creative labs, acer (monitors only), A4tech, gigabyte, razer

all suggestion would be much appreciated.

P.s i need at least 750gb of storage for music production, video files, webpage files and software space, games, etc...

thank you for reading

This goes $27 over budget, but will max out ALL games, except Crisis 3. You have enough CPU cores to stuream, and that processor WILL NOT ever, bottleneck any cards currently out there, if you decide to upgrade.

i think a 750 ti should be sufficient but idk, and if you use the promo discounts the price wont be all that bad. it will run most games at high-max settings

the cpu would need overclocked to handle a 770 i think, if your not interested in that i would suggest a 750ti maybe (saves you 60-70$)

i was thinking change it over to a MSI Radeon R9 270X 4GB TWIN FROZR $174.99 and adding a i5 http://pcpartpicker.com/p/g3R4Jx

the i5 should be able to run with any card you throw at it (even a 980) so its just a matter of how much you want to spend on the gpu.

this website should help you find what you want http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/

The 270x won't max out most games, but the pentium you won't be able to stream and game.

i agree the 270x wouldn't be a ultra playing gpu but in 1080p on just high res with at least 75 fps on most games would be fine this would be mostly for music production, video editing, gaming, and streaming with a i5 or FX-8350 i think it would be able to handle it and i can always overclock it
