Here's my revise of his build.

- The CPU is about $100 more and better (Quad-Core)
- The GPU is about $100 cheaper and better (4GB of memory, GDDR5 is overkill*no game actually runs in GDDR5*)
- Two memory sticks instead of one

Choice of memory seems weird. Planning on upgrading later? If not then you should just get 2*4GB instead of 1*8, because there are two memory channels in normal PCs, you're losing out on bandwidth by not using them both.

What would you recommend for memory?

Heh, didn't mean to discredit anything - nor did I say that some persons opinions are logically sound, just that it's probably futile to try and change some people's opinion.
If I helped you out, be sure to throw me a +Rep!

System before Graphics, but you could also consider the fact that card I threw up double the Memory number of the AMD card.

How much would you hate me if i responded with, "Oh yeah? Well everyone's entitled to their own opinion"? xD


On a more serious note, I was wondering what programs I should use to overclock an CPU (I have an AMD on my desktop, and an I5 on my laptop). I've been avoiding overclocking these babies for years now, just because i'm like legit terrified of doing it.

Also @Pulse when are you planning on purchasing your parts? If it's not urgent you could wait until some big sales occur to either save money or get more powerful components

Get out, i'm seriously going to ask Psi to ban you from this thread. We warned you plenty of ****ing times and people are legitimately looking for help here. If you want to spread crazy ******** do it anywhere but here.

Also @Pulse when are you planning on purchasing your parts? If it's not urgent you could wait until some big sales occur to either save money or get more powerful components



Most likely summer time, I plan on getting a job right after exams
