Hey /g/! I wanted to tell you guys about what i am planning to buy (i want to make a gamer PC). You guys know more than me so... Could you please tell me if all this together will work?
>R9 280X XFX (GPU)
>EVGA NEX750B Bronze (PSU - 750w)
>ASUS B85M-G (Motherboard)
>KINGSTON HYPER 8GB (RAM)
>Intel I5-4460 (PSU)
I still don't which case and hdd/ssd should i buy. Btw, in my country getting new hardware is really hard and expensive, that's why i ain't gonna build the best gamer PC.
While there's a thread open I might as well post mine. http://pcpartpicker.com/p/LKzggs
How long will the G3258 last me if I'm playing more recent titles? I'm going to buy star wars battlefront and I need to know if this is good enough for it and other hand like gta v and shadow of mordor at 1080P
Just go there, find the parts you listed here, and this site will tell you the wattage estimation and the compatibility issue.
The completed builds are also inspirational. You can easily find similar builds.
I had a XFX r9 290x for about 7 months. It would constantly overheat on me. I finally got enough of it and traded it for a 980ti.
Get a strix version. The r9 series runs too damn hot, get a good brand if you must.
Don't buy XFX 280X, they have known VRAM heat issues.
I used to mine dogecoin on 280X cards, I had 8/9 XFX cards die on me, MSI and other brand 280X cards were fine. I even measured VRM temp on my XFX cards and confirmed the VRM heating issue. Spend 20 bucks more and get literally any other brand.
Imo I had that same corsair psu and it broke about a month after having it and I had to go through the annoyance of sending it back and getting a replacement and the other day I went ahead and got a new psu and for a bit more it's much better. This setup can run star wars battlefront at 90+fps on ultra settings FYI.
