Hello everyone! So my friend got a job over the summer and he wanted to get a gaming PC. He will be playing games like CS:GO, Sids 5, and really whatever else me and my other friends are playing.
So I just wanted a quick opinion on the parts list here:
So my rationale behind the Pentium is because once overclocked (I was gonna try to OC it to 4.2 GHz), it shows similar performance to run with the i7 and i5 chips. He doesn't really do anything that is heavily threaded so I think this will work. As well as the Z97 board, it is so he can use the 1866 RAM that recently went on sale, also if he wants to upgrade in the future he has the best chipset to do it. Let me know of any other recommendations.
