  1. The PSU would be a EVGA 650 GS. I thought that the stock cooler would be enough unless I overclocked? Thank you for the suggestions about the Rosewill cases but those are much more expensive here in my country. This case is the only one I can afford for its price point.
  2. Do you think I should go for a R9 380/650 watt PSU combo? That way, I would have enough for an SSD and maybe even an extra fan for the case. Based on several reviews, I think this particular case gets very hot unless I have two intake fans. My only concern is that I won't be upgrading in 2 to 3 years so I want the very best. I have seen R9 380 benchmarks and I think it is a good card for 1080p gaming but I really want to play in High, Ultra settings.
  3. I have read A LOT about people debating whether 600 to 650 watts was enough for a R9 390 but I am just too scared at the idea of having my GPU replaced just because I tried to save money on the PSU. Thank you for your feedback, I will think about it and maybe do this if I can overcome my doubts.
  4. Getting a Crucial BX100 120gbs SSD with a R9 380 was the original plan but I think I would rather have the extra performance from the start and maybe just go through the hassle later. Thank you for the idea though, I will try to find some room to wiggle.
  5. 1. Budget and Location $900 to $920. I am from South America but will be purchasing everything from online shops from the US. 2. Aim 1080p@60FPS gaming. I want to get the best performance available in Ultra or High settings. Games I am interested in: The Witcher 3, Civilization V, Tomb Raider, Modded Skyrim, Far Cry 4, to name a few. 3. Monitors One monitor at the moment. 1920 x 1080p. 4. Peripherals I have a monitor, a keyboard, a mouse and speakers. They will be upgraded later on and are not of importance for this post. 5. Why are you upgrading? I have always played consoles.
  6. According to Sapphire's website, they recommend a 750 watt power supply. I wrote recommend like that because in other forums, people have been writing that they have a 390 with a 650w power supply and it is fine. However, don't quote me on that.
  7. I want to see a commercial with parts from this blog being narrated during the commercial. Don't know why, it just came to my head and I think it would be funny.
  8. Don't bother generalizing. There are toxic pc players and toxic console players. No escaping it man. Your best bet is to play with your closest friends if you can. If you can't, play with me
  9. Looks like a good build. A few questions, are you planning on going SLI in the future and are you going to overclock? (That second question seems obvious but just in case) If this build is purely for gaming and entertainment then why not just get an i5-4690k? Just like MountainDrew said: You could save yourself some money if you go for an i5-4690k. Welcome to the forum!

  11. My man, there isn't much to do. Like everyone else said, if you start feeling angry because of what you read in a monitor, you need to get up and do something else. If you want to seriously help someone and that someone is being a jerk, end the argument with: "Well, that's what I think, if you want my help or want to ask me anything, PM me. Have a nice day :)" Show off your blackbelt in not getting trolled
  12. The general agreement is that 8 gigs of RAM is perfect for gaming so, I think you should just go with 8 and if in the future you want to upgrade for some reason, upgrade. What do you mean how "vital" it is? Like, how important it is for your build in general? Was checking out your motherboard just now on ASUS's website and I don't know, it looks and seems great for overclocking. You can always check reviews on other websites and videos. Just in case you're interested, Linus uploaded a good video about power supplies because I think yours is kind of overkill. I may be wrong but, that's how
  13. SSDs from Samsung are considered to be very good and not too expensive. Another thing, what are you going to use this for (gaming, video editing, etc.) do you plan to overclock?
