Not sure if you've found an answer yet, but an XFX R9 270x is 130$(on sale atm, 170$ regular), and is a great GPU, you might can find better, but that's what I've seen as the best currently.

I would've sprung for just a 760 or 770, and gotten an I3... although you did say you were upgrading later. +1.

How does the 290 run, like temp wise? And also, with that budget I would've upgraded to an I7, understanding that people will argue and say, "Omg, an I7 isn't much better than an I5..." But just my two cents :) +1

Indeed my friend, I kinda, I go for what's best for me, unless I get into the 200$ range for a processor, I stick with AMD, sure single core performance is lacking, and other things are lacking, but they make it up with extra cores and easy overclockability :)

Idk, just thought about it, and I wasn't sure about the I7, but great server build nonetheless.

Couldn't you have gotten a Xeon, and bought a 30$ GPU and saved a little bit of money? +1.

Both consoles have 8 core APU's clocked at 1.6 ghz (XB1) and 1.75 ghz (PS4) But I believe that this build is still slightly better to consoles, as it has stronger cores and 8 cores for pc games isn't very utilizable.

Comment reply on Akumen's Completed Build: Medivh

This was after the XB1 was released, same with PS4, so I'd assume it's better, cause It doesn't run on an apu.

FOR EVERYONE SAYING POOR CPU CHOICE, READ THE DESCRIPTION. THIS WAS BUILT IN 2011 AND HE'S JUST REUSING PARTS, AND PUTTING IN NEW ONES. Seen 3-4 comments saying "poor cpu choice"

You seem to underestimate the power of his components. He can easily play FC3 on ultra and get playable frames, Crisis = different story and BF4 is light on AMD cpu's and graphics.

The EVGA's version is said to be extremely noisy when under load, I'd recommend ASUS or PNY.

You could look at the PowerColor version of the R9 270, it has better specs than the 750ti and is even cheaper! Although the 270 is a bit of a power hog at double what the 750ti draws.

In real world terms, there's no such thing as "Single Channel, or Dual Channel" they are both terms that we use but actually have no effect, the only thing "Dual channel" does is increases bandwidth by such a minuscule amount it doesn't even matter. In some benchmarks "Single channel" is faster than Dual.

I understand this is just used for Stock monitoring, but couldn't an I5,or an I3 been sufficient enough? :P, unless he intends on later turning this into a gaming machine, it's sorta overkill, but regardless +1!

Dual channel doesn't help as much as people say it does, in some games/apps single channel works better, it's really a matter of preference and price point.

No Problem, I really love Gigabyte's versions of Gfx's, because they are tri-fan and stay really cool and only make a little more noise!

And also, the I5 outperforms the 4130, or and of the 4k series in near enough everything, this isn't the most "budget" build out there, but it's oriented to what he wants and how much he wanted to spend

You should get the Windforce (Gigabyte's version) of the 970! Also great build man! Cheers +1!

It's a lower end gaming rig as he states because the 750 ti Limits what things he can do, yes it's a great gfx card for the price, but a 770/970 is what he should upgrade to and it'll be considered a gaming rig, heck even a 270/760 is good.

How is the processor and GFX Card? I'm wanting to get the same ones in my Christmas build. I assume they are top notch!

He said it was a GTX 560 used from his previous build but is going to upgrade to a 970 when he's gets the money.

Yeah, understandable, I'm not a PSU master yet, I only know that the 95% of people on here use either EVGA or Corsair.

Question, did you seriously pay 120$ for 500gb of HDDS,you couldve saved 60$ to buy a 760 and still gotten 2x as much space, nextly you could've gotten a corsair or EVGA psu with a gold/bronze efficiency rating, other than those you did an ok job with parts.
