Love it, have been wanting to get ahold of an older 90's case and do something similar. That 860k and RTX 470 should shred through just about any game you throw at it. I've been benchmarking my 860k and RX 460 to show others how capable it is, let me know if you have any interested in seeing what a budget rig similar to yours can do!

Holding out for Zen, hopefully i can get another 8 core/thread with better IPC and stay with team red.

i got my 8320e for $50, best $50 i spent since i was 21, can record, stream, encode, browse AND play games with no issues. i don't need Ultra settings, hell even low is better than consoles in most games. just gimme 1080p and 60fps and i am happy and this chip delivers, folks shouldn't believe all the reviews and benchmarks. Dont get me wrong, i have an i3 that gets just as good fps in most games, but it cant multitask to save its life, and it cannot replace my 8 cores/threads.

Wonderfully, i play Forza Horizon 3, Cities: Skylines, Stellaris, Killing Floor 2 and Ashes of the Singularity on it. I love the card and at the price i got it i have zero complaints. Very capable console replacement.

Have an 860k paired with an RX 460 and can vouch for it's potency. just because there is no upgrade from here does not mean it is bad, it works just fine ;)

Bandwidth is fine, thinking of just slapping all my HDD's in there, running the 8320e with the RX 460 and calling it a day. I have on average 2-4 streams at once.

that is what i was thinking, but i too am stumped on the PLEX. all the videos are optimized so transcoding would be minimal.

The 860k and RX 460 are a perfect combination IMO, they compliment each other and neither seems to hold the other back. +1

I saw more stable framerates when i went to the i3-6100, but the lack of more than 4 cores/threads makes a difference in some cpu heavy games. The Division for example i was able to play and record at stable framerates with the 8320e, with the i3-6100 i do see 100% GPU AND CPU load.

I went from an 860k to an 8320e to an i3-6100 for my main gaming rig. guess what, they perform the same. i didnt expect that at all. i ended up using the 8320e as a PLEX server and 4x gaming rig and using the i3-6100 as a Steam box.

I wish it were. I play Skyrim, Witcher 3 and similar games, do you have an opinion about those? I assume heavy CPU games like BF would show an unbalance.

It is hard to compare Intel to AMD, they both have their strengths and weaknesses. the 6700 is a $300 chip, for about $100 you can get the 8320E and enjoy 8 cores/threads, lower power consumption than most other 8000 series chips and excellent multitasking and gaming performance. but i cannot compare a $300 chip to a $100 chip. you either sacrifice some performance and save $200 or you pay top dollar for top of the line performance. personally i would rather save $200 and put that towards my GPU and monitor.
