Yeah, that board is compatible. Try finding a board with a 990FX chipset though. Most 970 boards can't properly fuel the 8-core FX chips.

So, I'm not quite sure what category this post should be in, but this was my best guess.

 

 

Anyway, on to my question: For somebody who isn't looking to run Triple-A titles, or games at max settings, would this be a good graphics card?

I'm not a performance junkie. Anywhere from 30-60 FPS is good enough for me. 

 

Here's a list of parts I plan to put in my build:

16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 (RAM)

AMD FX-8320 (CPU)

Corsair Builder Series CX 500 Watt (PS)

ASUS Xonar DG (Soundcard)

Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SataII SSD (Storage)
Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H (Mthrbrd)

 

[{What my graphics card *was* going to be: EVGA GeForce 950 2GB}]

 

Apparently, that card is absolute garbage.^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

 

Keep it around $170. Saving is not an option for me.

i dont really beleive  that the 750ti is a good buy anymore. it costs to much when newer and similarly priced cards deliver much better preformance and value. look at the r7 370, the r9 380, the gtx 950 the gtx 960 for better price to performance.

well save up for a 380 or 960 there is not point in buying this card if because it just looks stupid in this build you need more power

This video card should be fine, I'm currently using a GTX 780 and it works fine (I also don't play AAA titles at High or Ultra settings). I play older games similar to CS:GO most of the time. It's slightly better than your card but the difference wouldn't be much.

I'd think the difference wouldn't be much. Yeah sure the card is better but the difference in frames wouldn't be THAT astounding

Is the sound card really needed ? No onboard Audio (too lazy to google) ? You might be able to drop that to save a few bucks.

AMD FX-8320 (CPU)

Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD3H (Mthrbrd)

 

 

Those are not going to work together. AMD FX->AM3+ , Intel Haswell refresh/Broadwell->z97

 

 

Edit: For the graphics card around that price point, i'd look at the 265/270(x) or 7850/7870 (2GB), 280(x)/7950/7970, 285, 380. Or if you like NV, the 960 if you can find one for the right price. The 950 isn't "garbage", it simply is a little slower than AMD's price-equivalent offerings (especially from 200 series).

 

7850=265=370=cut down Pitcairn

7870=270(x)=370x(Chinese market only)=full Pitcairn

7870xt=super cut down Tahiti

7950=280=cut down Tahiti

7970=280x=full Tahiti

285=380=cut down Tonga

380x=Full Tonga (but too expensive for this bracket)

 

Tonga and Tahiti perform very similarly, but Tonga chips have Freesync support and are a little more power efficient. Both are more powerful than Pitcairn even in a "cut down" form.

 

I'd personally look for a 4GB 285/380 if you can find one in your price range. Both are more powerful than even the 960 (not by much) and should be under $200. 2nd pick would be for any Tahiti chip. They use a 384bit bus so you have 3GB cards minimum which is a nice fit for the power.

 

Only Tonga chips support all the newest features like freesync from this list. If that doesn't matter, I think the Tahiti based GPUs are the best bang for the buck.

 

If you want to run NV, again, the 960/950 aren't bad choices.

Dude read some benchmarks. The 780 crushes a 750ti...Like my 760 gets good fps in all games at medium to high (Except Star Citizen) and a 780 would get like 20 fps more in all triple a titles then my 760 if I'm right. Just my buddy with a 770 gets like 20-60 fps better than me in games like CSGO. (well I get 200 which you shouldnt really complain about but still.

Mind putting this in layman's terms? I'm rather confused by this xD

Also, could you link me to a chip that will work for this motherboard?

Somebody tell me if this will be compatible with my processor:

I'm retarded when it comes to figuring out the more 'detailed' stuff in PCs. I do basic stuff.

 

Thanks.
