Need advice. Purpose of this build is gaming, streaming, and mild photo/video editing. I will be running dual monitors and plan to stream video gameplay mostly. Also it will be used for other household work. Please help!

  • The AMD fx 8350 absolutely dominates the i5 3570k at streaming. Watch this video that compares the 3770k 3570k 3820 and 8350 at gaming and streaming games https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eu8Sekdb-IE

  • Since you're going with a tower style CPU cooler, you will want to get a low profile RAM kit because tall heatsinks will hit the cooler.

  • A 750w PSU is plenty for your build.

  • Get a nicer graphics card with the money you save, such as 7950.

So for the RAM kit are u suggesting a 2x8?

No, you can get 4x4, just not a kit with tall heatsinks. The ones in the part list I made are the low-profile edition Vengeance RAM.
