I had no idea where I should post this so I figured off topic would be a good stab in the dark. Anyway how does this build look? And any suggestions where I can cut some costs? Anyway here it goes.

AMD FX-8320 (8 core at 3.5ghz stock 4ghz turbo boost, will probably overclock to a 4ghz default)
MSI AMD 970 motherboard
8 gb DDR3 at 1866mhz
850 watt psu
AMD R9 280x 3gb ( I know everyone on here recommends Nvidia but this is the most bang for my buck in this price range as the only nvidia card in my price range is a GTX 960 and the R9 280x destroys it in most if not all benchmarks.)





AMD FX-8320 8 core @4.0ghz , AMD R9 290 4GB, 8GB DDR3 @1866mhz, 1TB Hard Drive

Quick look, what I can gather is that you love your AMD and that you may be close to 'Rainbow Chasing' syndrome.

I would go for a less power hungry graphics card and put the money saved into more RAM. But it depends on what you're going to use the computer for.

Cuboid, and probably darkly coloured, most likely with various LED lights.

I actually put more $$ into my GPU and got a R9 290

Very happy with what I built. Runs every game I throw at it max at 60+ FPS

8 gb of ram is actually pretty much all you need right now and I have no problem dropping another $50 on 8 more gigs in a year or so.
(My mobo can upgrade all the way up to 64 gb so I'm not to worried about the ram)

But thanks for the input everyone smile
