Hey i am building a gaming rig for my youtube channel - gamingw1thsegger,
Could anyone tell me if this pc is all compatable and if it would be able to run the most recent games

Case - CIT Vantage
PSU - Artic red+ 750w psu
CPU - AMD piledriver 6300
Ram -Corsair Vengance 16gb ddr3
motherboard - GIGABYTE 990XA-UD3
HDD - Seagate barracuda 2TB
graphics card - MSI R7750-PMD1GD5/OCV2 R7750

Will this rig work and is it powerfull enough??
thanks and please no get intel its better im getting AMD as im not rich wink.gif

Just about any game will run no problem. Bot not as well as they could - that rig is very bad in terms of getting the best bang for your buck.

Questions you need to answer:
What is your monitor?
Do you need an OS or peripherals (assuming no)?
What games do you play?
And perhaps most importantly: are you going to overclock your CPU?
What is your budget?

You should look at 256bit card's Like 7850/7870 or the 192bit 660ti to run games decently (Medium). 8Gb of ram is more then enough why spend more on 16gb? Will you be doing video editing, if so no problem if not its a good way to spend money for something you will not use, same goes for the PSU a quality 550w is more then capable to run a single VGA system.

and the psu came with the case but i will replace if need be

Unless you're near a microcenter, Intel will be more cost-efficient for you. Why? They have strong per-core performance at stock speed & locked CPUs you can buy. A big part of AMD's value is the ability to overclock. Without that, you're just not getting bang for your buck. Similarly we'll avoid the 3570k & z77 board recommended by CyGnus since you're not overclocking.

GPU is the next big question. Generally how much you spend here depends on how much you value turning graphics settings up to max. However, I'm going to assume your TV doesn't handle a 1920x1080 resolution. So we won't go overboard here...

Come to think of it, before I get into details, what country are you in? And if you have your current computer up & running you can check your monitor's resolution by right-clicking on the desktop, selecting screen resolution, and seeing what the max option is.

i am on a laptop and i use 1366x768 and my tv goes to 1080x720 max haha

plus the reason i am going for amd is that its cheap and i am not running really high games as i can run most on high now but my laptop runns at like 100degree when i do(literally)

and im not overclocking because of the heat reason if i ever got an aftermarket cooler i would overclock

To answer your questions: Yes it will work (Depending on what speed ram you get, must match your motherboard), but you may be able to get better items for your money.

Case+PSU - Good if the combo you're getting them for is under $110, otherwise check for other options, you won't need that much power. (Less power = Less money)
CPU - Good (You could always step down to the old Phenom IIs if you're short on money, but the 6300 is powerful and you can always overclock it later if you ever need more power)
Motherboard - Good (Fairly good for overclocking, you may be able to find a cheaper board that suits your needs if you never plan to OC)
HDD - Good
RAM - Good, but up to you if you need 16Gb, 8Gb is plenty for most. (Just check the speed matches your motherboard's recommendations)
GPU - Fair, I'd prefer to step up to 7850 or 7870 if you could afford it. Gaming demands much more out of your graphics card than any other part of your computer recently, yet running on smaller resolutions like your current max won't be too hard on the 7750 so you're safe. It should support your current games on max, and newer games on fair settings.

Cooler - You can find good ones for as low as $20, so do think about it, it doesn't have to be a major expense.


What country are you in? (To see what businesses you could buy from)

Are you physically shopping or online? (If physical, what stores?)

Also with any graphics card you buy, make sure it has ports that will work to your needs. Check what ports your monitor and tv have. (VGA, S-Video, DVI, HDMI) You can always get adapters, but it makes life easier to have it correct the first time.

Even with a tiny resolution you probably want a little more oomph to turn up graphics settings that little bit higher.
