I’m very satisfied with this build but it’s very pricey.. If you guys could recommend me anything that would be cheaper but not slower that would be great.

Note: All the prices are from Newegg (Canada)

Thank you so much! :)

    That’s a pretty nice build you have there =P

    The FX8350 has almost the same gaming performance as that of the 3570K (although the 3570K is a bit better) and the HD7970 can indeed let you play all games smoothly on max settings on 1080p. It can actually handle triple monitor setup if you wanted to =P

    here is an HD7970 gaming benchmark:

    yes, but i would go with a i5 3570k instead of the fx unless you doing some serious video editing. intel is much better for gaming.

    But I’d say it looks good. Good gaming computers will be expensive, and there isn’t really a way around it… I’d say as long as you choose smartly, your computer will be as good as the money you put in. I don’t know about the 120 GB Hard Drive though, that might not leave as much room as you would like if you want to play multiple games, have programs, and etc. as it might slow the computer down. It’s been said that having a lower HD space can affect the efficiency of the computer overall, and in my experience that’s true with my 50 GB hard drive. I had maybe 10-15 GB left, downloaded some games and now it runs slower with only a few GB space to spare.
