    Go with intel an i5 4690k or i5 6660k. 650psu evga
  2. are you sure the graphics card alone takes 500 watts according to amazon in my country.
  3. the card will use around 150 watts, a 500 watt power supply is required to run a system with the card.
  4. First off, give me a budget for your build, I can put together a much better one! :)

    You don't want to get an AMD CPU as they have poor IPC, which is essentially how much each core can do at once.
    They are also less optimized than Intel in most games.
    Is there a specific case you want in your build?

    NONONONO.
    DO NOT, get this build.
    For $20 more you can get 16GB of DDR4 RAM, which is quickly becoming the norm.
    The founders edition cards also suffer from thermal throttling, and are quite loud. See here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXUo1S55ZUM
  8. Give me 30 mins, I have to go do something but i'll be right back to get a build for you.

    Ok instead of saying do not get this build why not just say dont get the graphics card and get 16gb of ddr4.

    Because that's not all there is, you can get the same quality power supply for cheaper, and that motherboard is overpriced atm. For the same price there is a better alternative.
    I could go instead of saying don't get this build: change the motherboard, RAM, power supply and graphics card, but that's 60% of the build.....
