My planned rig, how does it look?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I've slowly been putting together a build for my next gaming PC.  I'm on a fairly tight budget so I'd like others to take a look at what I've got here and see how it holds up.

 

EVGA GTX 670 Signature 2

AMD FX-8350

Kingston HyperX FURY 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1866MHz

EVGA 500 W1 80+ WHITE Power Supply

BIOSTAR TA970 v5.3

Deepcool Tesseract SW Mid Tower

Cooler Master V8 CPU Heatsink

Crucial MX300 275GB SSD

Seagate Barracuda 2TB

Windows 10 Pro

What is said budget? Because an 8350 is not the best of ideas.

I was looking around $800 but anything less than a grand (CAD, that is).  I was originally planning on getting an FX-6300 but thought an 8350 would give me a more desired performance boost considering I was saving a lot on the parts I already have.

I would wait for the new Ryzen CPUs to release at the end of this quarter and this Is why:

 

even if you plan on keeping your current CPU, which really isn't horrible per say, but there are better options, then the price will be lower on all of the other CPUs especially with them being as old as they are.

Where are you getting the GTX 670 from?

Personally I'd hold off for Ryzen, it's my assumption AMD will under cut Intel to stay competitive which in return will put their previous products even lower. Ryzen is expected in Q1 so not far off could be in the coming weeks!

More like for the whole build, because I know that my remaining parts will total to about $650.

For some reason I never thought of that.  I guess that is the better idea, I'll see what the prices are like once Ryzen launches.
