I am a seasoned computer builder. I want to build a gaming capture rig, cough this actually is going to be more powerful then my computer by a tiny bit.
I want to build a watercooled microatx Amd computer. There is my problem. I will post what I was thinking.
Mobo: Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131942
CPU: AMD 8370E
GPU: Powercooler r9 270 turboduo with a watercooler http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814131545
ram: 16gb DD3 1866 Dominator Platinums
Using OBS and Dxstory for capture/Streaming
Here is the issue that board will work but it is a old board no new micro atx mobo for FX line. Okay fine and dandy but no usb3 front connector and only Sata2.
Would it be a better idea to go with the A10 7850k and a newer board or go with the 8370E and that older board?
On a side note I plan on using the GPU as well as CPU for encoding so capture cards with encoders on them are pointless and not as powerful. Here are my 2 choices for capture cards tell me what you think would be better or if you have a better idea suggest it, though it would have to be pci express 1x without a shroud.
If you have any questions post them and if you want to know parts of the build you can ask too.
