I would like a stable build for Modded Skyrim, Mount and Blade, Fall Out 3/4, Rainbow Six Siege, Ghost Recon Wildlands, and GTA 5. I would like too use the mini-itx case if possible, I do not plan on overclocking.

I have been reading about many issues concerning DX11 and the drivers for this card. I know there are a great many R9 390 users who are not having issues, and I thought this would be a good place to ask people with experience with this video card, especially since I am building from scratch.rolleyes.gif

Which OS, Win 7 or Win 10.
Which Drivers?
Any other advice you can give to get this build started on the right foot would be greatly appreciated.redface.gif

I did not plan on overclocking, but I see the value in the addition of the "k" series cpu with the Z97. Do you think the 500w PSU is up to the task?
