1 - Are the parts compatible?

2 - Can the build perform 60fps while on Ultra/High Settings for most games?

3 - What games would this not be able to run 60fps while on Ultra/High settings? (Excluding games with relatively poor optimization)

4 - Are there cheaper and more efficient parts that can replace the above?

  1. Best answer
    Yes it will perform 60 FPS ultra/High Settings On "MOST" games. WHen Overclocked 4+ Ghz

    Only game refusing to let it run on dual threads is Dragon Age Inquisition (Even though this cpu could chew threw it if allowed)

    A lot of gpu for that cpu, but still great for gaming, all you need to do is increase graphics settings/resolution, and decrease settings that the cpu does (such as shadows in some games) And it will give you a prettier experience in games.


    Now the only thing I have to Complain about is the PSU. It is not enough wattage or good enough quality to run a r9 290.

    Get a PSU from Antec/XFX/Seasonic thats 600+ watts. Only some Evga/Corsair Units are good quality such as the b2/w2 series from evga.
  2. Also when gaming, do not run anything in background or it will hurt the dual core cpu a lot.

    I suggest throwing in an i5/i7 later when you have the funds to, but as of right now that pentium when overclocked is a beast.
