Glorious 4K Media and Gaming Big Red (monster-packed)

This computer will last throughout the ages beating any computer that defies this king of kings.

The reason for 16GB of RAM is because I've noticed that even 8GB seems to be enough for very large and high-end tasks, so maybe double that would be able to withstand anything thrown at it, even media rendering.

Sure, the 8350 isn't the best of the AMD, but it sure in hell isn't the worse. It doesn't have hyperthreading or better core performance compared to intel, but it sure does have the ability to do a ****-ton of gaming, streaming, and a whole lot more at the same time. It's also extremely easy to overclock with this motherboard, water cooler, and CPU combo.

    Swap the 8350 with a similar price i5. You get better gaming performance with the i5 however you would get better rendering and stuff with AMD

    I would rather have at least a 6-core Intel processor because a quad core is barely enough to do gaming, streaming, rendering, and some high-end things all at one time (mega-tasking). I do love Intel's performance, but I think the 8350 would do a better job for all of this compared to a regular 4690k. Also, with the water-cooler I've selected, I'm sure it can get the CPU overclocked past 5.4GHZ as the H60 got my 8350 to 5.4GHz max.

    Ok fair enough.
