How's that MSI card for you? I'm debating between that and the Sapphire.

I have an R9 280X, would that be able to run games at 120 hz?

The 4670 is still a really strong chip, and he spends the same price using gas to get the part.

The nearest micro store is 60+ miles away, and he doesn't need a beefy processor (he's not compiling code or anything like that, the machine is pure gaming).

If you want to run 3 1080p monitors, that's 1920 x 3240

The R9 290's max res on digital is 4096 x 2160

I don't know much about resolutions, but that sounds really sketchy.

Performance peaks at 1866 ram with cl 8 or 9, then drops a bit at 2133

Hmm. I'll consider that.

The main reason that I didn't want their Ares series is because it's so plain. lol.

I know that it's cheap but I want to match my color scheme and other things.

Well it'd be nice to know what the computer is going to be used for.

That great of an i7 would be insane overkill for gaming.

An i5 would easily suit your needs (4670k)

IMO, 2133 RAM isn't as good as 1866 low cl on an Intel CPU. Just me though.

I'd buy a 760 or R9 280/R9 280X and wait for the 800 series, considering your gigantic budget.

Other than that it seems fine.

The XFX card is sold out on newegg, so I think I'll buy my other components then the GPU last.

THE MEM CLOCKS ARE THE SAME AFTER REFERENCING SITES.

Probably newegg or Amazon.

By "the same" did you mean the memory clocks?

I put into google's calculator and it said that 1000 mhz is equivalent to 1 ghz, so wouldn't that mean the XFX has a memory clock 6x faster?

It's actually a budget build lol.

The only reason for a high end gpu and other components is free CPU.

  • 63 months ago

Well, first it depends on your budget.

If you're on a lower budget (which it looks like due to your gpu), you want the AMD for lower price.

Now. AMD APU's tend to sacrifice computing power for their integrated graphics (which are outstanding btw).

You'd probably want to switch to their FX series (FX-6300?)

Obviously, if you had the budget, you'd go for the intel.

You're missing the point. The R9 280 is the equivalent of the gtx 760. 770 is comparable to 280x. I need to know your budget to be able to get maximum performance.

Lol I was assuming we could find one (seeing as though the XFX R9 280X is the same price as a gtx 760), but if not, you still save $50 with no performance drop.

Logitech G600 has 12 macros, 3 mouse buttons, and a corded wire + really great feel (personal experience) Also it is backlit and can be changed to any color.

Amazing scroll wheel, perfectly weighted, dpi changeable.

Edit - Also quite a large mouse.

Swap to i5-4670k, difference between 4690k and 4670k is not noticeable. $20 off.

H60 doesn't provide more cooling than hyper 212 evo/plus. You need high end water cooling to feel the difference. $30 off.

Upgrade to a low end R9 290 with the extra $50?
