Hey all. I've had the 'pleasure' of being stuck with an AMD fx series processor for around 8-9 months, and I've had enough of the complications. It was my first build, being a budget build ($850), I used AMD based processor and graphics card. Now I believe it's time for the good stuff! This build will be primarily used for games such as Battlefield 3 and 4, ARMA III, Planetside 2, and the newer Assassains creed games. My budget this time is around $1600 this time, giving me the option to go with an Intel based system. Here's what I had in mind for my build.
- MOBO: Asus Maximus VI Gene
- CPU: Intel Core i7 4770k
- COOLING: Corsair H100i
- RAM: Gskill ripjaws (8Gb)
- SSD: Samsung 840 evo 250gb (Already purchased)
- HDD: 1TB WD Black edition 7200rpm
- GPU: EVGA 770 4Gb
- CASE: Corsair 350D W/ window
PSU: Corsair RM750 80Plus gold
.. And some fans. ;p
Feel free to give me some opinions outside of my budget; Whether it's AMD or Intel. To spare the time of criticism, I have nothing against AMD. And I know BF4 will be optimized for AMD based systems, But I want to go a different route with this build. Cheers!
