    • Looks fine to me. Only suggestion I have is to pick up a cooler since those chips run a bit warm. The Hyper TX3 or Hyper 212 is a great choice. Also gives you some cooling headroom in case you want to overclock the chips a bit. If you need to reduce budget, you can step down to something like a 500W PSU. EVGA's 500 W1 runs under $38. That RX470 is so efficient that you can probably even get away with a 430W PSU TBH but there's not a huge price difference between 500w and 430w. 
    • I plan on building my first PC(amd) for light gaming and Web browsing. I just need a a quick review and suggestions on the hardware that I have chose. Whether it's overkill or under powered, but every time I post a question about the hardware Intel fan boys raid and immediately resort to talking down and shaming me for mentioning AMD. So please be helpful. Here's my hardware list. CPU: AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz 8-Core Processor w/ wraith cooler w/ MSI 970 GAMING ATX AM3+ Motherboard  ($189.99 for bundle) 
      Memory: Kingston HyperX Fury White 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory  ($44.91 @ Amazon) 
      Storage: OCZ TRION 150 120GB 2.5" Solid State Drive  ($43.30 @ Newegg) 
      Video Card: MSI Radeon RX 470 4GB Gaming X Video Card  ($199.88 @ OutletPC) 
      Case: Corsair SPEC-01 RED ATX Mid Tower Case  ($39.98 @ Newegg) 
      Power Supply: Rosewill 550W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply  ($54.99 @ Newegg) 
      Total: $573.05
       
    • Well, I would recommend you get started on our recommended workstation builds http://www.custompcreview.com/pc-computer-builds/recommended-workstation-pc-builds/ I'd aim for either a mid-range or the high end build to start with and pick up a workstation graphics card to go along with it. Probably something like the Quadro M2000 or M4000. 
    • Sweet build you got there. That Phanteks EVO with the tempered glass looks awesome! Definitely need a bigger desk. Can't even fit properly sized speakers, haha!
    • What's your budget?

    • To maintain a good consistent FPS I would recommend a better CPU of i5 MINIMUM.
      I'd also upgrade your gpu to the 1070.

    • What Sam is saying is 100% correct. Your GPUn needs attention. Ensure you get the 1070. It's got much better performance than the 750ti

    • Hey mate.
      It's a decent rig due to your above average graphics card. What resolution do you play on playing??
      If 1080p you may get between 35-40 fps which is playable.
