Keep in mind that the budget is really low. So any advice?
>>
drop the cd drive.
>>
Look for cheaper RAM, also I don't know how much your graphics card needs, but your PSU looks too big.
Drop the CD drive, pirate stuff. Don't buy windows, pirate it or use Linux.
>>
Drop the cd rom, drop windows 8.1 and get yourself a 7 iso from digitalriver, drop AMD completely and get a 750 ti and an i3. Downgrade to 4GB of ram. Get a WD blue instead. Black is overpriced for not much gain. Get a seasonic or corsair PSU.

If you buy amd you will regret it. I know I do.
>>
>>45401536
mantle?
>>
>>45401549
AMD throttles their own DirectX performance to make Mantle look like it's an improvement.
>>
>>45401549
Mantle is hyped garbage. Don't fall for the scam.
>>
Don't downgrade to a 750ti.
>>
>>45401536
>get an i3
And then what motherboard?
Is an i3 on par with the fx8320?
>drop the CD drive
Really? For what it's worth might as well get it, I could need it
>get a 750ti
Isn't it a downgrade?
>>
>>45401536
>750 ti
>50

Shit nigga, you're literally telling him to get a SUB GAMING tier gpu instead of a flagship.
Just how insame are you fanboys are?

Stick to your 290 but as for
Keep 8gb ram
AMD os okay, GPUS are great as for CPU 8320 got OLD already, but it must be the best thing for 100$ on market now that inter raised the price to 300$
>>
>>45401750
>Isn't it a downgrade?
It is, that man is nuts.
>>
>>45401452
>dont pay for windows so get reid of that
>cd drive get rid of that

I just saved you money /V/
>>
>>45401452
It's a good build, don't listen to most of these fuckheads they don't know what they're talking about. They just recommend shit that they have to make them feel better about their purchase.

I would recommend getting cheaper RAM and PSU since 650w is too much for that build, unless you plan to upgrade and gaming grade RAM is placebo. Check the benchmarks if u don't believe. 750 ti is weaker don't downgrade.
>>
>>45401452
Very reasonable budget build. Only thing you might want to check out is how much price difference you'd get when instead of using an FX CPU you'd go with an A8 or A10 APU. The APU could then be used in crossfire with your GPU and you'd get a little more performance out of your rig.
>>
>>45401933
In one hand this, in another I've heard a 8 are weaker than this ancient FX in terms of CPU
>>
>>45401933
I heard APUs don't crossfire well with GPUs.
>>
>>45401986
Crossfire works fine but Mantle is acting strange in some games as of now.
>>45401972
It's true, older FX CPUs can still outperform modern APUs, but honestly you won't notice that unless you're doing CPU intense things like calculating Pi all day. I'm currently using an A8-7600 in my build and can play muh gaymes perfectly fine on highest settings. Bottlenecking is a /g/ meme.
>>
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zZPgpg

get an i5 or i7 down the road.
>>
>>45402043
>hurr durr you need Intel even though your build will be more expensive and have less power than your current AMD suggestion.
>>
OP here, made some changes: got rid of windows 8.1, changed PSU, CPU (I have money for a fx8350), HDD and RAM.

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/6W7pNG

I forgot to say what my budget is btw: I can spend up to about 750$
>>
>>45402091
better to have an upgrade path then to have to get new everything in the future
>>
>open the tab
>tab title says "AMD FX-" before the page loads

Nope. Well actually it's $120 apparently so go for it.
>>
>>45401750
>Is an i3 on par with the fx8320?
For the vast, vast majority of games it is because of the i3's superior per-core performance.

For some tasks (and a tiny number of games) the fx 8320 kicks the shit out of the i3 though.
>>
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/C9pmWZ

this is your best bet

>>45402043
>http://pcpartpicker.com/p/zZPgpg
That pentium will bottleneck that 970 even while overclocked to 4.5Ghz.
>>
>>45402226
Get this OP.
>>
>>45401933
Don't APU's suck dog shit?

What's the performance like CPU-wise?
>>
>>45402226
I won't overclock so do I really need an after-market CPU cooler?
>>
>>45402228
You'll still get better FPS in games with that setup than you would with a stronger CPU and weaker GPU.
>>
>>45402262
intel stock coolers are horseshit, you need an aftermarket cooler
>>
>>45402226
Rebates?
>>
>>45402226
>750W PSU
Isn't that too much?
>i5-4690K
How does it compare to the FX-8350?
>>
>>45402372
It's better in every way.

You could drop down to a 500W psu with no problems.
>>
>>45401452
http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Ln3Tt6
Here you go oP <3
>>
>>45402372
I've had both and the 4690k rips the 8350's ass open in pretty much everything, especially gaymen

>>45402478

If you are gaymen, you dont need 16 GB of RAM.

Also, 850W is serious overkill, 650W will be more than enough.
>>
>>45402372
>Isn't that too much?
Sure, but you get headroom. You can run two 970's on 750w.

>How does it compare to the FX-8350?
That would be a stupid comparison to make as they're 70$ apart in cost right now.

The 8350 should match or slightly exceed the 4690K at heavily multithreaded tasks but the latter will destroy it at everything else.
>>
>>45401509
>pirate Windows
No.
>>
>>45402499
Then you're a dumbass.
>>
>>45402478
couldve gone with a cheaper mobo, unless you sli in the future 850 watts is overkill.
whats the 16gb ram for?

>>45402494
i use the ram for my research, computational chemistry stuff

The 850 is for addition of a second gpu if i ever feel like it, pretty insignificant price difference on newegg currently
>>
>>45402491
i3's are fucky imo so i'd go with a g3258 and overclock the fuck out of it.
>>
>>45402478
Complete shit
>>
>>45402575
The i3 performs better than a 4.5Ghz G3258.
>>
>>45402610
pentium is cheap as hell though
>>
>>45402529
This.
>>
>>45401452
Related to this thread in that it is a quandary necessitated by budget: I am currently using a sexy new ultrabook, but want to try to salvage my dying gaming laptop and maybe turn it into an all in one desktop.

It was working fine, but my housemate spilt whiskey on it, now it overheats. I assume a short has been created somewhere. Where do you reckon I should look?
>>
>>45402413
>14.000 dollars monitor

Why does that even exist
>>
>>45402954
It's a medical tools display monitor.
Hence the stupid amount of brightness it has.
>>
>>45402983
>>45402954

I am in the rather privileged position of having recieved two of those(not as new as these) second hand from a radiologist friend. I am training to be either an oncologist or radiologist so use them for looking at medical imaging, but they show games up beautifully in direct sunlight.

I didn't realise how niche and badass they were when I was gifted them.
