i've been thinking along time about choosing nvidia or AMD, I'm going for AMD.

 

Soo, i've remade my build:

 

Corsair Obsidian Series 750D - Fulltowermodel

ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z Republic of Gamers

CoolerMaster Silent Pro M2 850W

Asus R9290X-4GD5 ( Might change this later )

AMD Black Edition - AMD FX 8350

Corsair Hydro Series H100i Perfomance Liquid CPU Cooler
Samsung 840 EVO Basic - Solid state drive (250GB)
Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 (2TB)
Corsair Vengeance Pro Series (2x8GB just to be sure )
Samsung SH-224DB ( DVD-Drive )

 

Edit:pffff, the noise.. I better wait.... http://www.youtube.c...h?v=QQhqOKKAq7o

Why a HAF X? They are just dust collectors (I have 3 mates with HAF series cases lol) Look at a 650D or 750D

Get a H100i

FX8350 (it will be beneficial) 

Decent 990x board

You won't need 16gb for gaming, look at 8gb

How many watts is your PSU?

Can i keep the stock coolers on the 750D? Or do i need others?

If I were you, I would go for GTX 780 which already has non-reference cards on the market. If you want the 290X it would be wise to wait for non-reference ones.

Well, I've got to wait till late november till my paycheck arrives. i've heard the non reference coolers will be available by that time too ;)

Thx for helping anyway :D

I already do own BF4,

Is the 8350 Much better than the I5 4670K ? I am not really known with AMD processors, and they use alot more power right ?

Also, is AMD from the same quality as intel ? will it last just as long? Won't there be any problem ?

I am sorry for my uncertainty hehe..

If the diffrence is not big, i'd like to keep the Intel.. but if it iss i'll switch to the 8350

And is the 290x not worth it ? I'm willing to give out a little bit more money just to be sure.

And the 290 does not have Uber/quite mode etc.. dont know if it's worth it.

The availability of the 290 will also be bad i heard, so will i not run into problems if i want to get a second 290 later?

@coen113, A non reference card? Do you mean a Costum GPU ? Like one with 2/3 fans instead of the stock cooleR?

I'd like to, but i'm not so sure how long it takes till they are available.

There's not much of a way to determine quality between cpus. They're all high quality and that's not an issue. 

The 8350 will likely use a bit more power than the 4670k but will also perform better for BF4 and gaming in general.

The 290x isn't worth it considering the 290 is pretty similar but a bit cheaper. If you're not in a hurry, wait for aftermarket 290/290x's and plan later. The stock cooler is loud.

Most people who say they will sli/cf don't. Don't worry about getting a second 290 unless you're 100% you want to.

Yes, non reference meaning one with an aftermarket cooler.

The stock fans are fine.

The 8350 is better than the i7 for gaming.

8 cores > 4 cores.

 

Also little point in getting the 290x. The 290 is quite a bit cheaper with similar performance.
