Hello,

 

So I recently decided to build a new computer and I was wondering if I can get some feedback and also if it would be good for medium gaming(nothing to hardcore because I don't want to push it to much)

 

GPU: AMD FX-4350

PSU: Corsair 650w

GFX: Nvidia 750TI

Mobo: MSI 970

Ram: PNY 4gb(x2) 1866mhz

Case: Coolermaster HAF 912 Mid-Tower

 

This is the build I'm currently working on, at some point in the future I'll upgrade the processor either to the 8350 or the Zen(even though that will require a new motherboard) when it comes out. I was also thinking about switching from AMD to Intel with the i5 or i7 depending.

 

Is this a decent build for running most games on mid-high with some settings lowered like shadows and things like that which will require a heavy resource pull from the GPU?

Hello there, :)

 

Welcome to Bleeping Computer. Hope you learn a lot here.

 

For medium gaming, the Nvidia 750TI is a bit low on video RAM. I recommend for medium gaming a minimum of 4-5 GB (3 GB bare minimum); however, I suppose if you do lower some GPU settings, it may work out.

 

I assume you meant CPU here instead of GPU:

"GPU: AMD FX-4350" - No biggie.

 

If you have tested some on Can You Run It, then you might be in good shape if the tests are good.

I would recommend FX-8XXX CPU right now as they are very cheap.

For GPU, AMD RX 460 is much better than outdated GTX 750.

Corsair PSU is what model?

Yeah, but this is only a 2 GB model... unless you obtain the 4 GB model, it would be low on effectiveness (about as effective as the GTX 750, but with a faster memory bus and improved caching).

There is more to a video card than VRAM. For one thing, the RX 460 has a different and 2 year newer architecture. In some use cases, the RX 460 performs 50% better than the 750. Additionally, the RX 460 has nearly double the transistors, and better API support (DirectX12 and Vulcan).

Without the need to be overtly technical, I did mention above, "but with a faster memory bus and improved caching" for sake of referencing similar things of what you had just said; however, I understand what I said was a bit ambiguous.

GPU: AMD FX-4350 weak for the price, low cash ram and only a 4 core the AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core is only $15 more and has 4x time the cash ram, way better over all cpu.

GFX: Nvidia 750TI i can get this card used for $60 still a good card for the price,thinking of getting one my self.

PSU: Corsair 650w should be fine.

Ram: PNY 4gb(x2) 1866mhz should be good.

Mobo: MSI 970 normal PCI slots are a in weird spots but should be ok, bin a wile since i did chip-set research so can't say anything their, chip-set just as important as the CPU.

 

And agreed with others on the topic of video card ram, that isn't what i look for when im looking at video cards its the bus bit width and over all memory speed.

 

Btw your missing parts like hard drives, dvd rom, dvd burner and cooling whats up here.
