Hi I am 6yo and i plan to build my pc too, do you think the 430w psu will handle the r9 270? If it does i think you shouldn't overclock the CPU

Oh,though. Then it is even more cheaper, no need of an aftermarket cpu cooler, neither a oc' motherboard. And you can use the saved money to get a better GPU though

An APU, are the AMD's processors with integrated graphics. Their graphics are equivalent to an r7 260 more or less. And you cand add a video card for a dual graphics config. However, Apu's are most used in very low budget builds, for light gaming and web browsing.

In your case, I wouldn't go with an APU. Your budget is nice enough to suit a better gaming build, with more upgradability too.

Also as you see here. Even a low budget cpu with a very discrete card beats the APU in most games.

Most people will tell you, or will ensure that 8gb of ram is a must for gaming!. And it really helps, it's true! However it is not a "must". For the games you're playing 4gb is more than enough. Even the most intensive games like Crysis 3, just recommend only 4gb and 8gb for High-end gaming. I play TF2 on high settings in my notebook U52F with 4gb and no problems at all. I can even open the browser and switch tabs, play music too...

The things is, it is better to make the heavy spending at first then if you think you need the 8gb after trying only 4gb, you're free to get another for $40 bucks.

Hope this helps..

An R9 270 might be overkill for those games, but It'll let you go further anytime you want.

Also the r9 270, for the performance you get at this price is a steal.

I'd rather performance more than I'd rather nicer pheriperals

You cand add thenm later, but as Jason says, you're probably not going to need them. Better not invest now, also his build is very balanced, and it has high quality parts! :D

No dude, I don't have a superiority complex, rather you seem like you have an inferiority complex.

Back to the topic, again I never said a 770 is better than r9 290, all I said was: 770 is better if he's going to do editing, r9 290 if he's only gaming. I just wanted to let you know that regardless of the purpose of this build. And, that's why said:

OP, did not say if he's onto editing too.

I agree with you, r9 290>770 in a gaming build.

I won't reply after this comment, my spyder sense is trying to tell me that Philip is watching us. Happy building!

Oh, I don't seem to know what I am talking about...

Since when does the graphics card matter for video editing?.

Either CUDA or OpenCL , most software benefits from high ends gpu's. Also when did I say, spending more money on Gpu instead of CPU was more wise?

You are the one who is a little clueless.

The 6300 is fine, for budget builds. They doubt about that particular choice, because that procesor for a 1.1k build it's not very money-wise if you expect a balanced pc

Yeah I've heard the r9 290x performs amazing, but for 2 way Crossfire they're a nightmare as most people say, overheating so no overclock capability. I think it's great, but for this build 2 780's are the best deal
