PC build advice

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello.

After my old GTX 560 ti died the other day, I decided its time to upgrade my PC. From my old rig I plan on keeping:
- PSU Corsair 1050 hx
http://www.corsair.com/en-us/hx-series-hx1050-power-supply-1050-watt-80-plus-gold-certified-modular-psu
- SSD Samsung 840 (256 GB)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147189
- WD 2TB / WD 1TB

For the new parts I chose:
- i5 4690 3,5 GHz
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116989
- G1 Gaming R9 390 (8 GB, DDR5)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125792
- 16 GB Kingston HyperX Beast (1600 MHz)
http://www.amazon.com/Kingston-1600MHz-PC3-12800-KHX16C9T3K2-16X/dp/B00A771ZLO
- GIGABYTE GA-Z97-HD3, DDR3
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813128715

The reason I did not pick a K version of i5 is because I am on a budget and simply don't plan on overclocking. My question is if this mobo is ok for this kind of build. If you would recommend a better more expensive board, what would I gain with it. (I chose it because of my budget)
Also, I'm planning on playing at 1080p. Would a r9 380 be a better choice or should i keep the r9 390 as a future proof card?

Thank you

Hi, too bad your GPU died (how btw ?), the upgrade parts seem good but:

-The RAM seems a bit expensive for the listed frequency, you could get a ddr3 2133/2400 kit at the same price or buy a better looking/cheaper kit for less cash

-The GPU is nice but you should choose another aftermarket model (http://www.computerbase.de/2015-10/neun-radeon-r9-390-x-partnerkarten-test/4/), gigabyte quality is meh, maybe you could even get a refurbrished 390x from amazon or something

-Maybe you should take a look at the skylake offer for the mobo/cpu

You could get an i5 6500 and an asrock z170 pro4 or gaming k4 and the 390 is 28% faster try to get .xfx R9 390x from newegg at 350usd which is slighly faster but if your budget does.t allow you a 350usd card get either an used 290 or a new 390

If I got it right, the 390 is the same as 290 which means you may get a used 290 with a very low price and get almost the same performance and you can get a better cpu.
