  • Computer in Amazon Cart, last thoughts?

    I have these items in my amazon cart which I will use on my first ever build.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/registry/wishlist/JA8YEYHW0XGP

    Anything blatantly wrong? Everything going to fit OK in that case? Will performance on the r9 270 be able to handle next gen games moderately well or should I be looking at nvidias alternative gtx 760? etc...

    Limit is about 800-900$ for the computer with windows. I also plan on buying more case fans, thermal paste, a dvd drive, and maybe a 3rd party CPU cooler.

    Thanks for your input, I've been thinking about buying one for forever now.

    Consider the 270X or the 280. The 760 isn't bad though.

      Also:

      Motherboard

      Your current B series mobo does NOT allow you to overclock your K processor. You'd need at least a Z series board for that. My recommendation: http://www.amazon.com/MSI-Motherboar...650001&sr=1-11

      RAM

      Go for 16 GBs dual-channel kit rather than "saving" the money short-term on a single stick. You'll gain better performance out of your gaming rig and it'll end up saving you at least $20 down the road (instead of upgrading later). My recommendation: http://www.amazon.com/Corsair-Vengea...4649831&sr=1-2

      SSD

      Your 1 TB is fine for storing media and large files, but hard drives are notoriously prone to failures nowadays. Get an SSD for your OS and as a main applications drive. You'll benefit from the fast boot/shut down/loading times, longer life than most hard drives, and you'll save a significant amount of cash if you buy now rather than later. My recommendation: http://www.amazon.com/Samsung-Electr...1&keywords=ssd

        Did you end up purchasing already or do you need more advice/help?

          Unless you have a lot of stuff, I'd get a 256GB SSD drive instead. Well worth it. Then get a cheap 1TB storage drive for your Video and photo collection. An SSD will greatly increase loading times.

          If you can also go for 16GB of Memory. The cheapest will do (faster Memory is like a 1% speedup).

            PCPartpicker is an excellent resource. It will even tell you parts conflicts. Even if your RAM and motherboard voltages won't mesh.
