I'm sure with intel build it more expensive.

I saw videos about fx 6300 runs BF4 very good.

And i'm also concerned about the comparison with the 4670k while it's quad core, still very good recommended CPU for gaming.

Also I like MSI gaming motherboard because it has killer E220 fast networking to reduce the ping because I need this feature.

Many advs to the intel build, though AMD build is cheaper by approx $178 ... so very big difference though.


I did this selection after a decent average experience search from Google, YouTube and forums.

750 watts is way more then you need for a GTX 770 if you are not going to SLI you can go with a 550 watts PSU, Even if you want SLI later the Cooler Master V700 is also a Seasonic PSU just cheaper and with a better fan

It's for SLI and overclock possibilities ..

isn't 750W enough for these two actions?

Yes it is but the PSU you picked can be found cheaper in its rebrands, or you can go for the EVGA SuperNova G2 which is both better and cheaper

Perhaps switch to a Corsair H60 or even a Cooler Master Hyper 212 for cooling, and used the saved money to bump up that CPU to a FX 8320? I'd rather a 8320 at 4.4-4.6Ghz(probably what you would max at with those two coolers) then a FX 6300 even at 4.8Ghz, especially if you plan to go SLI down the road, as the 8 core would handle two cards much better.

If you can put $5 more towards memory, I would go for this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231468 it is at a higher rated speed, and Battlefield 4 is one of the few games out there that benefits from faster memory.

The 4670K is the faster CPU, but Battlefield 4 runs nicely on AMD CPU's due to its use of up to 8 threads, so a 6300(or 8320 if you go that route) will run it like butter thumb.gif

because i understood that seasonic is one of the best and XFX is producing with their fundamentals components or using the same components .. similar process, not sure.

That would be correct, I didn't even catch that. OP, if you plan on SLI, that board doesn't support it. Perhaps switch that h100i out for a Hyper 212, and used the saved money for a better 990FX board and a 8320, and just get better cooling down the road if you decide you need it. A hyper 212 should push a 8320 to 4.4-4.6Ghz though, which is more than fine thumb.gif

I don't even want to open that can of worms. wink.gif Lets just say that either CPU will be good enough for 90% of games.

EDIT: Let me restate a bit. Intel may be better in a few choice games, but AMD will still play them just fine as well AFAIK.
