New PC Build

So with my current PC just unable to do what I need it to do I decided to bite the bullet and order everything for a new PC. I hope you like it, well more importantly me too:

CPU: AMD FX 8300 8Core @Amazon
GPU: ASUS Radeon R7 370 4GB @Newegg
Mobo: Biostar TA970 @Newegg
RAM: HyperX Fury 16GB DDR31866 @Newegg
HD: Seagate 2TB SSHD @Amazon
Case: Raidmax Vortex @Newegg

I feel that the power/performance vs price is really good. Everything should arrive next week and then my system will handle anything I need done. I mean I'm not going to be running VR at max settings or anything so I should be good.

Now I went with AMD over Intel because flat out I really am not happy with what Intel did the other week. They have huge profits yet lay off about 11% of their workforce. For that reason alone I felt I would support AMD as I have done for a long time. The FX 8300 was only about 20 dollars more than the 6000 series models, extra cores for a minimal increase in price was worth it.

For the GPU, NVidia vs Radeon you can do well with either. Just look for the deal that works for you and that is what I did. Actually here and the rest of the field there is so many choices it took me a while to decide on everything.
