Default New Build

Ello peoples, was just hoping that one of the build gurus could go over my build and give a second opinion haha. I think I've got all the right things, in terms of compatibility. Cheers

Intel Core i5-4590, MSI GeForce GTX 760, Corsair 200R - System Build - PCPartPicker Australia

Also, I picked all the parts from CPL to save on shipping costs. That's why I've done that

Cheaper RAM from CPL.
Crucial 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory (CT2KIT51264BA160B) - PCPartPicker Australia

20 dollar cheaper R9 280 if you want to go that route.
Gigabyte Radeon R9 280 3GB WINDFORCE Video Card (GV-R928WF3OC-3GD) - PCPartPicker Australia

I would go this route instead of the H97.
ASRock Z97 Anniversary ATX LGA1150 Motherboard (Z97 Anniversary) - PCPartPicker Australia

Also no real point in spending the 12 extra bucks or whatever for 100MHz. Won't really see the difference.
Intel Core i5-4460 3.2GHz Quad-Core Processor (BX80646I54460) - PCPartPicker Australia

Thanks for the advice PP, I've used all of those parts except one, which is the graphics card. The GTX 760 in all the youtube benchmarks I've seen, beats the R9 280 by at least 10-15 fps. During explosions, it's even more (BF3 and 4). But thanks again

Youtube, not reputable. On all reputable sites that compare the 280 vs the 760 the 280 is at least 5fps more than the 760 besides in a select few Nvidia titles. Honestly the only reason I would chose a 760 over a 280 is due to the NVCodec for streaming or recording gameplay. It has pretty much 0 impact on performance whether you use Shadowplay or OBS.

This might sound arrogant, but I've had a hell of a time using AMD for the last 2 years on my laptop and I do NOT want to have to go through all the bs on a new gaming rig. I've been wanting to try out nVidia for a while, and so I would simply like to use that. I may use an AMD card later though

Understandable, just wanted to let you know what's up. I use Nvidia cards for two reasons. Drivers, and NVCodec. Although I was just offered a cheap 295x2, so we'll see what happens lol.

That's the issue I've been having, drivers from AMD are a pain.

Pretty much been an exclusive Nvidia user since uhhh.....2010? I hardly ever use PhysX even when it's available. Now Gsync, that's something I can't wait to jump all over.

^ Its horribly optimized when on the higher settings, but it makes things look pretty.
