Why would OP put have a ASrock Fat1ity X99M in an ATX case, if he wanted to use a M-ATX board then he would have gotten an M-ATX case.

I understand that the cooler is enough for you temperature wise, but those sock coolers are very loud.

I do agree it was not optimal, but it is a "beast" of a system, as for ram speed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dWgzA2C61z4 here is my facts skip to about 1:58 where the benchmarks start, between ddr3 800mhz and ddr3 2400mhz there's only about a 0.1-0.3 fps increase, this is because when you buy higher speed ram you sacrifice latency.

In the first sentence of the description it CLEARLY STATED THAT THIS COMPUTER WAS OBTAINED IN THE BEGINNING 2013. In '13 these were the highest end parts you could buy its not like he picked the computer up yesterday. OP does not need to sell the parts this computer is more than capable of running games, and for the ram, 2400mhz ram is not needed, he is on the ddr3 platform not ddr4, ram speed makes little to no difference in gaming performance.

and if you think he should be concerned about power draw then OP wouldnt be going with 4 or 3 way 290x....

Who said he bought the cards 2 days ago, the way OP is making it seem is that he already had that rig and had 1 7990 and just bought a second and was waiting for it, if he has 1 card then it makes more sense to crossfire them than just buy all new cards. In my personal experience using the 7990, if you have antiquate air flow in your case, even in crossfire, the 7990 does not run too terribly hot.

Do you not see the quotes around the "6gb"? I understand that the buffer per card is small but here is 1 card (OP said he's adding a second) at 4k.

http://www.blogcdn.com/www.engadget.com/media/2013/04/7990-8.jpg

The benchmarks are a little old but your still getting above 30 frames on all of those games with ONE CARD now whats gonna happen when he adds the second 7990 other that **** scaling, MORE FPS making this system perfectly capable for 4k gaming.

No, not necessarily, fast ram can help performance in any system, APU's are just deigned to take advantage of high speed ram. These card don't have a 3gb frame buffer, the R9 280x has a 3gb frame buffer the 7990 has a "6gb" frame buffer. Also keep in mind he has another 7990 on the way so essentially 4 7970's which will be perfect for medium to high graphics quality for 4k gaming.

There are some (emphasize some) am3 motherboards that support older FX chips, not on the Vishera architecture but the old Zambezi FX chips like the FX 4100, FX 6100, and the FX 8120.

I agree i would like to see FX builds over i3 and i5 builds because of the price/preformance, but in the case of the this build and other itx builds, its hard to find a good or and itx board for the fx chipset.

The problem I have found with the strix cooler is that at idle or when its not being utilized the fans shut off, so generally that leads to high idle temps.

Yea I was thinking why would such a re-nouned builder make that mistake, the monitor will never be free sync compatible, so wonder what his reasoning is....

Why ROG swift monitors? Your using a AMD card that cant take advantage of g-sync, why not wait a month or two for the new free-sync monitors from CES to launch?

Hey, I like it, don't listen to the intel fanboys bro, just do what works for you. From what I see and personal experiences with the 9590 this is a speedy build and you have a great cooling solution. nice cable management and color matching as well!!!!!! +over 9000

if your playing at 1080p your not going to need more then 2gb of vram. even my old gtx 680 with 2gb of vram can play shadow of mordor with the ultra texture pack at 1080p around 50-60 fps. and even with a 8320 and crossfire 270x PCPP recommends at least a 600w psu which is nothing for a crossfire build and we all know that the system wont even draw that much from the wall. also to add the whole point of me doing a crossfire build is even though it is budget, it should still last the user 4-5 years which this system easily will. the vapor x cooler keeps the cards extremely cool, even though there are 2 of them.

yours is really solid, although a lot of money went to keyboard and mouse so you could keep the purple theme strong.

also not every 290x has 8gb of vram. the only ones are made by sapphire and the 8gb of vram will only get you increased preformance at high res or extremely detailed texture packs such as in shadow of mordor. lower end cards seem to scale better, so there would be more than a 30% increase, my personal expirence being a 78% increase average in the games i tested.

yes at 1080p they are more powerful, and who said anything about 4k. 4k is no where near being a standard, not everybody wants to dish out 500+ for the most basic 4k monitor and a grand for something like 2 gtx 980's just to barely pull 60 fps on most AAA titles.

by far the Razor Naga 2014.

http://www.amazon.com/Razer-Naga-2014-Gaming-Mouse/dp/B00E8CF268

and only 61 dollars

has many macro buttons for all your item switching needs.

I use it for LoL and it works great for buying things in the shop quickly and switching items quickly.

epic AMD black and blue themed build weighing in at 1062.30$$ after rebates.

Rational

AMD FX-8350 - great performance, reasonable price.

Corsair H55 - liquid cooling is a must for me so this is quality budget option.

Asus M5A99FX PRO R2.0 - great price and OCing performance. also black and blue, NO BROWN PCB CRAP.

Kingston Fury Series 8GB - it was blue and 1866 and had low latency.... why not.

Kingston SSDNow V300 Series 120GB - may get some slack for skimping on storage, but it is a good ssd and most people have old HDDs from desktops or even laptops laying around for mass storage.

Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB Vapor-X Video Card (2-Way CrossFire) - AMAZING CROSSFIRE PERFORMANCE... better then the flagship r9 290x and they have pretty blue leds.

NZXT H440 (Blue/Black) - it was blue... and black... and windowed.

Corsair RM 750W - enough wattage and had all black cables.

Cooler Master CM Storm Devastator Gaming Bundle Wired Gaming Keyboard w/Optical Mouse - blue, black and good quality for a budget build.

it would get you about 10-12 fps more than the 270x and the 3gb of ram on the 280x will help you with ultra textures in newer games.

Wow, a pretty solid build, I have no real issues with the build itself. The case I would change but if you already have it in hand then that's that. Other than that I would up the gpu to a 280x if you have the money or add another 270x in the near future.

Thanks,

Carl

What i would do with about 800 dollars (total 870$$) http://pcpartpicker.com/p/wbbZjX

The fx-6300 has enough PCI-E lanes to power both 270x's (one 16x and on 8x) and judging by your budget you playing at around 1080p and this system will power through all new games at max settings like butter.

thanks,

Carl
