That is either a great troll or the most the most hilarious question ever.

Got a discount so I bought a Logitech G105 keyboard.

Really like the feel of it, just enough lighting too. Can recommend it.

Wow, so late reply but what are you planning on doing with all that computing power?
i7-490k doesn't seem like a regular gaming choice and only 8gb of ram fights against video editing.

Future-proofing, I guess. I think being able to handle multiple threads well is going to be increasingly important.

That should indeed give a good platform to just keep updating for quite a while.

KHORNE'd my Phantom a bit.

Posting it here for additional ego-boost, nice comparison to how it looked previously up there.

So damn happy with it.

Dark shots.

AMD FX Series FX-8320 120,39
Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 92,42
Phanteks PH-TC14PE-OR (from different source, already acquired)
16GB Corsair Vengeance Pro Series DDR3-1866 CL9 Dual Kit 180,60
480GB Crucial M500 212,61  
850Watt Corsair CS850M ATX Semi-Modular 118,10
VTX3D Radeon R9 285 X-Edition Aktiv 237,41
Total 990


Is what I'm thinking for my current budget build since my pc needs to be overhauled royally. The radeon is not really necessary just now so I might still go back on it and wait for better deals. The 280 + 280X are on pretty good deals now that 285 is out but I'm not willing to sacrifice freesync.
The FX series AMDs are all from the same chip so I'm planning on once again betting on getting a good sample and seeing if I can push it to good results.
The corsair memory is pretty expensive and by far the overachiever in this group. I'm unwilling to get anything else than corsair as I've dealt with enough faulty memory for a lifetime so I'm willing to dish that 20 extra, what I'm not sure yet though is if I want to get the CL9 pro or just regular CL10. I will be OCing the processor a lot though so it might just be worth it.
480GB SSD is needed, anything smaller is too small. I've got an old HDD that I might or might not keep for storage since this would practically be a completely new build. Might just keep the old one for all the legacy games that XP runs SO much better. Will have to see.
And yes, the build will need that 850 watts. I've got direct electric heating though so it doesn't matter that much. All that extra power wasted goes to heating my apartment that would be done with electricity anyway.


Any ideas?

Well, it seems ok. You'll have a quite large power consumption, especially if you OC. From this point of view Intel is waaay better, but it's also a lot more expensive. You sure that Phanteks can handle the heat? FX processors overheat quite easily with stock coolers so I guess that's one of the reasons you went for that.

The one thing that I got a problem tho is that Graphics card. It's fairly new and has some branding problems but that's not that important. I just don't like it because of only 2 GB ram and the 256 bus. I'd personally invest more into a Radeon R9 290X with 4 GB and 512 bus, considering the specs of the other components. Or maybe you plan an Xfire later on?

290 is over budget.
It's like, 200 euros more than the 285 so a no-no.

I'll update it when Everquest next comes out, if ever

Yeah, I am sure.


About the gpu still, yeah, sapphire offers a whole desibel lower cooling solution but it's 10% more expensive so no.

Did you look into the R9 280X range? Most of them have 3GB, 384 bus, higher MHz, wider bandwidth and it's roughly the same price... Take a look maybe it's better.

It just pains me that you invest such little money in what is arguably the most important component for video games.

Have you considered Black Friday next month?

280 and 280X don't have freesync so they're not viable. I will be updating my monitor after we get IPS adaptivesync panels and I don't want to be forced to upgrade my GPU at the same time.
It might not matter, I might upgrade it before or after anyway but I don't want to take the chance.

Dude, we're in europe, there's no black friday in europe


The main occupation for the PC won't be gaming, although it will be a major use. If it was purely gaming it would be eating intel regardless of the cost difference.

Well, you do have a point. Freesync is definitely important. Didn't knew AMD had the technology too, I'm on Nvidia and they got G-sync...

Anyway, if it's not for gaming, what's it for? Business?

Yeah, AMD has been catching up the last year or two. Also, before that, they were mostly behind on driver stuff, so the hardware is very much comparable... Drivers are important though.
