How is that Athlon X4 860k in gaming? I am thinking of building my little brother a PC with this CPU... I know it really depends on the GPU but I was wondering if you notice any bottlenecking with it...

Thanks! -iso

P.S. if you are looking for a nice case, heres the one I use: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147184&cm_re=Galaxy_02-_-11-147-184-_-Product

Its not much but it keeps the PC cool and has PLENTY of room for backpanel cable management.

Thanks for the reply! I have been hearing a lot about the 212 Evo so I'll probably get this one.

yeah, I received this as a gift from my grandfather. Who am I to turn down a free screen, haha? I do love the amount of overkill with the video card at this resolution though, but I am planning to get a 1080p screen next, or an SSD.

Thanks for the reply!

To answer your question, The CPU is great for the price, not an i7 but hey, its $200 less... no problems with it so far and I can have multiple programs open and chrome tabs with no problems with responsiveness.

I have to use the stock cooler as I do not currently have the money to buy anything, even games. The stock cooler is not loud at all keeping the CPU cool with no heat issues, though I could have just won the "CPU lottery" and gotten a extremely good chip, which will be great when I overclock!

That is a solid motherboard... the reviews you may have seen were for the Revision 3 not yours, the revision 4. I have the same one and its great, just bought an ASUS GTX 770 too!

how is that 280x? people keep telling me to get a GTX 770 and im just not sure because the 280x has 3gb VRAM and seems like it might last longer with upcoming games.

yeah, over the course of this year I plan to get an SSD, by the way do you overclock with that 8350/evo? like does it stay cool if you do?

The 600W was good for later upgrades, along with overclocking. But to each their own I guess!

Minecraft runs fine at 1080p max @ 60-80fps with this CPU/GPU. If the difference is only $20 go for the 8320! those 2 extra cores may come in handy some time, and, who doesnt want 8 cores! :D

The GTX 770 is fine, or the GTX 760 (if you dont mind turning the graphic settings down some) but other than that you're all good! And, 32 fps? I normally get 30 fps on games with my 'craptop' and in those games where I get 60+ fps or just look at the ground you can see an improvement, trust me I love 60 FPS but cant achieve it... saving for a new desktop though!
