$400 budget to play overwatch at max settings or pretty close

Hi, my goal is the message title. I was looking at buying these:

https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboBundleDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.3262621

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137076&cm_re=AMD_Radeon_RX_470-_-14-137-076-_-Product

But I dont know if the card will fit, have enough power supply or if the cpu will bottleneck the gpu. If u could answer these or give suggestions for reaching my goal, I would appreciate it.
Thanks in advance for your time

Edit: I don't need an OS, Monitor,Keyboard, nor Mouse and looking for U.S. sites that can ship

    CPU will definitely bottleneck that GPU. It's an AMD dual core. There's a reason that machine is under $200.

    That will do what you want it to. There's a few things in there I'm not thrilled with like the PSU and the lack of an SSD, but that's what you'd get for the budget.

  3. Thanks for the replies, is there an amd option for cpu? I kno amd is usually alot cheaper than intel
  4. No, that CPU is below the minimum requirements of what overwatch needs by like 30%.

    This is about the minimum you want for OW at max:

    out of the question. 5 year old teach.
    they have got nothing to compete with.


    unless you can wait a bit longer for ryzen which launches for q1 2017.

    Not really, at this current time, AMD hasn't made a new CPU in 4 years.
    They're cheaper because they're also worse.
  7. And I will add to the above: Any AMD CPU that you want to put in there will be at least $100. You'd want to start at least at the quad core variants of the FX line, which start at $100.
  8. Alright thanks just gonna pick the cheapest one as the solution and go from there, and see if I can find my own way to save a lil more
