Im a new user, and it isnt spam. I am just saying I think he can get more for the money. KingNothing303 is spending $2k on a custom built machine and you want to put an i5 in it with only 8gb of RAM? Its a waste. The SSD is unecessary, but it doesnt hurt since hes spending that much money. He can also get a better case for that price and I would recommend a higher watt PSU for the price.

Personally this is the setup I would get, or something similar. The setup killerx525 posted isnt bad, I just feel you can get more for the money and save a bit. This setup is about $1700.

I want to start with the fact that I am an AMD fan at heart, but for the money, if he is going to be gaming, the one that Killerx525 listed is much better, the i5 is much better for gaming than the i7 (depending on sources of course) and the GTX 770 is a more powerful card than the 7970 (The card I use) and as far as RAM goes there will very rarely be a need for more thatn 8 gigs either way if you're going to go with 16G you're better off with 4 sticks of 4Gigs

 

Both builds have their advantages, but honestly if I had 2 Grand Killers build is what I would go with, though maybe a cheaper keyboard and monitor (I like cheap with good performance)

Well, Im still partial to that system build, but numbers and specs > opinion so the i5 build is better, but not by a lot. I honestly dont think he would even see a difference depending on what games.

The i5-4670k will rip apart the fx-8350 in raw performance even though it has half the cores. 750W is an overkill for system that only has 1 graphics card and the Thermaltake Smart M's build quality is rubbish compared to Seasonic and the efficiency is only bronze compared to gold. The GTX770 is roughly about 5% faster then the 7970 and more efficient in terms of power consumption. The monitor that was chose uses a TN panel compared to the MX series which uses an IPS panel, resulting in better colours and viewing angles. Also the K95 is an mechanical keyboard rather then being membrane meaning better experience in typing and gaming.
