I know I can buy it new, I was saying 350 to show I have wiggle room. I am not expecting to pay 350 on a used market but I am willing if lets say someone threw in a few extra goodies like an SSD or something.

I saw those and I was honestly thinking about it, but like I said I like a little bass and my dorm mate has this headset and it didn't really sound that great in my opinion. Headset is comfortable af though.

Thanks for the tip. What do you think I should ask for my rx 480? Also I ordered a vga cooler for my rx 480 which should bring the temps down a lot (from what I have been reading it will go from 85c under load to an average of 65c under load).

My PSU is 750w. I think it can handle it. But I decided before I sell this rx 480 I am going to try and get better temps with a vga cooler I just ordered before I try and sell it.

Yeah I think if you sold them right now on ebay at a buy it now price of $400 each you could easily do that.

Dude just sell the rx 480 cards you have and part out the rest. The rx 480 is going for a lot of money right now on ebay due to bit-coin mining.

PLEASE DO NOT BIOS FLASH THE RX 480 TO A RX 580: https://www.extremetech.com/gaming/248044-flashing-rx-480-gpu-rx-580-bios-really-really-bad-idea

Not a good idea. Not for any GPU. Other than that very good build.

I am getting star citizen next week. I will let you know then. Dont be expecting ultra 4k graphics at 60fps. This build will most likely handlle the game at mid to high settings though.

"Completely destroys" is a bold statement and even I side with rx 400 series, but honestly that is ignorant what you just said. If you want my opinion on why i think the an rx 470 or 480 would be Better is to be able to crossfire

That's why I said when it comes down to it, the cpu is just a matter of his preference. I would personally buy the fx 6300, but I know that's not everyone's preferred choice. I made the part list so he could see another possible choice of what he could do with his budget.

Never said that the FX 6300 did beat the intel core i3 6100. Just said in most cases the frames you loose isn't enough to see a difference in gaming unless playing more cpu bound titles like GTA V.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Pc build Max 700"

Okay so I decided to change a few parts because you listed a few games that you play and honestly the i3 6100 is not a bad choice but due it not really holding its after market value and only having two cores, I opted for the AMD FX 6300 because 1) Its a very popular cpu and 2) the only game you are really going to see a a pretty big difference in frame rate between the i3 6100 and the FX 6300 is in GTA V (link so this makes more sense: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4dUCeF2jnU). But ultimately it comes down to preference when you choose a cpu. I also opted for an after market cooler so you can do some mild overclocking on the cpu. I also changed the keyboard for something I know works very well for gaming and is a great deal at the moment. You will also see I added a custom part for your monitor. The reason I did that was due to the fact the monitor I chose for this build is cheaper on ebay than on newegg. And if you look on the link that will take you to the page for the monitor it is being sold by newegg just on ebay (hope that makes sense lol).

I would advise against getting linux and juSt go straight for a copy of windows. Most games dont support linux and run on mainly windows OS.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Is my gaming pc build a mistake?"

  • 36 months ago

I can play day z (Arma 2 mod not stand alone) at medium settings with a steady 32fps on my AMD A10-7400P processor and just the apu itself. So with the setup you have I am going to assume it can play day z okay. gta will be a problem seeing how the game is very cpu bound. So depending on how good the cpu is, the game will be limited. That's why if you watch videos of people benchmarking gta with the same gpu but a different cpu you will see a difference in framrate almost everytime. Bf1 i cant really give you an opinion on it because it is still in beta and with changes still being made to the game you may be able to play it now but that could change. I hope this helped.

It's crazy how fast the rx 480 is selling. As soon as they go in stock they are gone.

May I see pictures of the board and if you could also some pictures of the bottom of the cpu. I kn ow this will sound weird but could you write on a piece of paper next to it "TH3_R3AL_R3D" just so I know for sure its not a photo you pulled from the internet. Not saying you are a shady person, but just to be on the safe side ya know.

Will be upgrading later to zen and I would get intel just to save a little money later down the road so I already have the DDR4 RAM but AMD announced they will be using a new form of DDR4 and I don't know if current gen DDR4 will still work.

Trust me. I would absolutely adore to have a skylake i5 6500 but I am in a little bit of a time crunch and need the build to be cheap and I need to get it pronto. Maybe later down the road I will get it but for now the fx series will do the job.
