Well I don't know AMD's side of things, but I wouldn't expect that motherboard to be very good for overclocking at that low of a price.

 

I did have something else to say too; that PSU is a rip-off at that price. Here's a better one at an even lower price right now:

It's the 550W XFX TS Series, which is a SeaSonic S12II inside (not high-end, but still very solid and still better than any Corsair CX Series PSU).

 

Are you trying to keep this under $1,000?

Regardless I would also suggest a bit more of a PS.

650 watts or better so you're not on the edge of maxing out your power draw. Better to have more power than you need when it comes to power and 80+ gold at least.

http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-power-supply-120g10650xr <<<<< that's a better choice. wink.gif

I'm sorry but that particular PSU is even worse in quality.

 

Why 80+ Gold though? I'm just curious because the 80+ Certification has nothing to do with the PSU's quality or its output capacity.

 

Also, unless he overclocks the hell out of the GTX 970, his power consumption will never be high enough to justify the extra cost of a 650W PSU.

my max is 1200 anything over that i cant do
post #26 of 59
get the psu two cables suggested and think about upping the SSD size. I have a 120 now and I only have 20 gigs of space left with only 2 games installed and a few other things. Everything else is on my HDD, I am in the market for a bigger SSD as their prices are way down.

That heatsink will get overpowered by that cpu in short order with any decent bump on an AMD, they run hot.

What games and resolutions will you be playing? Do you really need 8 cores? You could do a 6 core with some better parts and have room to OC with this. >>> http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kjthzy

i want to be able to play the lastest games resolution is 1080p i chose the 8 core just in case i decide to start streaming or rendering videos

TwoCable will be faster on this propably but:

Brand and 80plus does not matter. You have to look for every psu individually and the nex series is a pretty bad one from evga. Very similar to the cx series from Corsair.
Take the EVGA Supernova G2 550w. Propably one of the best 550w PSUs and 550w is more than enough. This build will hardly use more than 400w and as long as the op does not use 2 GPUs 550w is enough. For everything!

@OP
How about intel? The 8350 is a pretty good cpu but an i5 might be the better choice for gaming and AM3+ is already a very old socket.
