pcpartpicker.com/p/Z4LQf7 - Use this link. I stole Kober's part list and swapped stuff out for a better price. Since you wanted a better price to performance ratio, that is.

You could stick with the Intel side, but it's about $150 more expensive. Personally, I advocate for Intel stuff at the moment, but it's your call.

If it's the one that Kobe' linked, then yes.

GPUs come with pre-applied thermal paste, and it's usually done relatively well. As for the CPU, I'd buy some AS5 or Mx-4 and apply it instead of the cooler master paste they provide. There are multiple guides on how to do that.

Due to the massively decreased seek times on an SSD, compared to an HDD, the loading times are vastly shortened. While you could purchase a separate SSD for games alone, I wouldn't recommend installing games onto an SSD meant for OS installation. You want to write to the OS drive as little as possible.

Games don't utilize all of the cores, but with the way that Windows works, it will benefit to have more cores. In any case, more threads, the better off you are, for the most part. It also saves you quite a bit.
#10282 - MrTwinkles (06/28/2014) [-]
Ok, so what do you think about the size of the ssd? I want at least to put the os on there though you said games run better when they are on there. Can you elaborate?

Might want to go with an AMD 8350 instead of the 4670k if you're not that interested in pure performance.You'll have to change your mobo, but stick with Gigabyte or ASUS.
#10279 - MrTwinkles (06/27/2014) [-]
I'm a little worried about an AMD processor because I heard that although they have good performance for the price they use a lot of cores and I've heard most games don't fully utilize more than a couple cores

If you're not overclocking get the cheapest mobo you can find. GPU is way more important than CPU for playing games, get a 770 and a cheaper CPU. SSD is only going to effect your load/boot times and they are very expensive. RAM is all the same stuff except some is rated to run at >1333Mhz, might be worth getting some rated for 1600Mhz because they are not so expensive. Motherboard will not effect performance what so ever, look for a motherboard that has the features you need. You could run that system off a 600 watt PSU but I think 750 watt is the right choice so you can upgrade other parts in future.

It's a 4670k.. He'll be overclocking.

The fact that he made this post suggested to me he is not confident about these things.

The Obsidian Series (which the Corsair 750D is one of) are some of the best cases out there at the moment. I whole-heartedly and highly recommend anything from the series. The 750D has very good airflow, and more than enough cooling capacity to go as far as even a custom loop. You will not be unhappy with it.
The GTX 760 is good, yes, but the 280X is slightly better and cost roughly the same.
User avatar #10229 - kober (06/27/2014) [-]
Note: R7970 = 280X
