Ok that makes more sense to me. Have fun with your new PC :)

It's kind of weird to see a SSD is even more expensive than the GPU in the system. I wonder why :).

I agree. There's no need to spend $70 cooler on a locked CPU. Extra money can go for a larger capacity SSD.

Stuffs are quite expensive in Australia! Nice build.

it's also more expensive. If you have money, get a 850 pro. Otherwise evo 850 is a great choice

Oh I mean space between your case and the wall. It would be better to have some space there

I've never taken mobo seriously as I do with CPU and GPU but what you said really opens my eyes. I always thought i3 isn't ideal for gaming compared to i5 and i7.

I think you should leave some space at the rear because it's where air exits the case.

But shouldn't it be better if you get an intel i5 instead of i3 since i3 is a bit old right now? I mean I have an $80 mobo and it still runs quite well.

Can you explain why you chose the mobo to be more expensive than the CPU? And also why a $80 portable drive?

Wow it's amazing to fit an 980 ti into $1300 build. How's that mobo doing so far?

I don't know where the B products of EVGA came from. Are they refurbished or something? And they only come with 1year warranty Yeah it's pretty hot, but only in Witcher 3. BF4, Witcher 2 and Metro get only 80-85 max.

Oh you haven't picked it up yet? Then I suggest you might want to check the price of GTX 970 for better price/performance. If they don't have it then the GTX 980 is a great deal for that price:)

Wish I had known this before. I already bought a R9 290 for $239 and I'm pretty happy with it. Only issue is the temp upto 94C with Witcher 3 :(

Where did you get the GTX 980 for $350? That's definitely a steal!

Personally, I would have gone with an i5-6600 for $100 less than put that extra into the GTX 970, but it's just my opinion, you had great choices there too. I'm particularly interested in how well the GTX 960 4gb version performs in games. Could you please share some of the benchmarks in Valley or Firestrike? Thank you:)

I doubt that too. And he has the idle temp is 10 degrees. Either his room temperature is like 5 degrees (which is apparently freezing) , or there's something wrong

Yes but I think you should do some research about your GPU idle temperature. It shouldn't be that high even if with an AMD card. Ideally around 30-40ish

Well my R9 290 is at 37-39 degree C at idle and goes upto 80 under load. I'm not overclocking or anything. Are you overclocking your GPU?

AMD cards on idle should only be from 35-42 (I actually made that up but around 40ish is good enough). If you're running 52 degrees on idle then you might be having a problem.

I'm a bit short of money now so I unfortunately can't upgrade to a new case. I'm thinking about getting the define r4 on black friday :)

Are you running them at stock speed? Those FPS are impressive and even higher than my R9 290 and as I know GTX 960 isn't that powerful (please correct me if I'm wrong)

Just curious why you chose the GTX 960 other than GTX 970/980 for this price range. Other than that the build looks awesome.

I like it when people did some research about what they're going to buy and honestly that's the best part of building a PC. I also like reading the explanation how you came up with the list. Pretty nice build you have there. I'm just curious but did you really get 78fps in GTA V at high/ultra. I have an i5-4590 and R9 290 but I don't think I have that high avg, maybe around 70 but it never drops below 60fps. I would really appreciate if you can post your firestrike score or valley/unigine benchmark uphere. Thank you:)

I do see people said that a lot but most of the time the GTX 970 performs really well sometimes even outperforms the R9 390..

He actually has 12gb of ram. I expect a higher quality GPU at this price range like a GTX 970 or GTX 980.

I'm considering the Corsair Spec 1,2 or 3 but I can't tell any difference between them. I'm willing to pay no more than $60 since I'm still a college student.

Still they produce a lot more heat than NDIVIA cards and I own a R9 290 myself. It tends to run up to 85 degrees under load.

Yeah. I personally prefer Intel CPU with AMD card to heat up my room during winter :)

Like I mentioned I didn't realize I picked up the wrong case so that's the consequence. I'll upgrade to a better case soon:)

Quieter and less heat production I guess. People have their own taste :)

That moment when you realize the keyboard is even more expensive than the mobo, cpu and almost matches the GPU. Also, why liquid cooling for a low end CPU? Not to mention only 120gb? You should have done more research if you're on a budget. You could've get a decent build for this price. I5 and GTX 970 is much more powerful.

Actually I just did a little research. It seems that Witcher 3 is also CPU intensive. I7 pulls up 10fps more than the i5 in novigrad town.

I doubt it because when AMD cards are known for heat production and it only stutters in witcher 3. I have already updated my drivers. It happens occasionally, still playable but I just merely want to get rid of it. :)

You don't have much room for mouse movement do you. Great built but that moment when you realize your monitor is more expensive than the GPU itself. Maybe it would be better if you spend more on the GPU but it depends entirely on you. Have fun with your new PC :)

It's not a good idea to pair a high end GPU with a medium CPU. "Bottleneck" may not be the right term. Correct me if I'm wrong but some games demand both GPU and CPU power and the FX-6300 is not really powerful enough to handle intense games IMO. Better choice would have been an i5 with R9 290.

Comment reply on Matt.xv's Completed Build: Venom

Is that Battlefield 3 or 4 you're maxing out? Imo I would spend $60 on the case and put $100 more on the GPU to get R9 390 for much better performance. But if that setup is running well for you then congrats!
