  Hey guys, so i've already had a post about a gaming pc that I am going to make, I was thinking, why not add the extra 200$ and get an even better setup, so I don't want to go into detail TOO much...

 

  But basically, I want a pc that can run games at a steady fps, at pretty high settings.

 

  Here is the build I have ATM, which is my build that I have on my other fourm.

You don't have any storage?

 

And this is just the tower for $1200 correct? If so, give me a couple minutes.

Storage?

 

e: get a WD or Seasonic HDD one with the amount of storage you need and if you want an SSD get a Samsung 850 EVO or a Kingston SSDNow

Oh, well I edited my post. Just remove the 1TB Caviar Blue and upgrade the SSD to a 250GB 850 EVO (unless you're fine with 120GB).

ah that makes sense. Just to make it easy for you and us just find what you have and mark it as purchased if you want to share your build later,

I just went for a 4790K. It doesn't matter if you pick the i5 4690K anyway but I thought, why not? Chucked in a SSD as well:

considering that the cheapest fury is 80 bucks more expensive that the cheapest 980 according to pc partpicker links, i think u should go with the 980. I think the performance is better for the fury x though, but 80 bucks!

the two cards...

There are other ways to get the price down//stretch your budget.. if you have good credit you can get a card or two with cash back (chase freedom $150 back after 500 spent, $25 more if you add someone to your account). There are also sites that offer substantial $ off for your first purchase (cough jet dot com).

 

I think your build looks pretty good otherwise.

but thats to many hoops to jump through. I really think for a $1200 pc, u should get a 980, and not a fury. It just makes more sense.

Too many hoops if you're lazy. Signing up for a credit card takes all of 5 or 10 minutes and you can have it expedited for free usually. Seems worthwhile to me to save a couple hundred bucks unless you have money to burn. The jet dot com idea could be viewed as a hassle, but it doesn't take that long either. My cpu took like 14 days to arrive, but my graphics card arrived in 2 days.. Just depends where they secure stock from.

Well if you're a teenager then yeah you're kind of just stuck with what's out there. You could still try to take advantage of say the jet dot com deal though. Saves you like 50 bucks on a more sizeable purchase. Entirely up to you though.
