              Thank you!


              It's my first custom build in almost ten years...which is coincidentally around the same time I got into console gaming exclusively. I know earlier I had added pictures of my rig to the original post and now I don't see them here. I will try to get those put back up for all to see.


              All in all, i'm extremely proud of this build. I had people tell me that I could still do a budget build with Intel & Nvidia parts, and still be able to play games (H1Z1/LoL/Arma/MGSV:TPP) & stream, but when I mocked up a comparable Intel/Nvidia build to what i'm running now, my AMD rig cost about $500 less at the time parts were purchased (going through pcpartpicker.com).


              I've always been a die-hard AMD supporter for most of the time i've been building computers, networks, etc etc...but I also believe in going where I can get the most bang for my buck, even if it means going with Intel for any kind of extended period of time. So it baffles me as to why AMD people are looked down upon. Intel elitists? Possibly. All I know is currently i'm running almost all of my games at high or ultra high settings and still running at least 60fps and no lower than 50fps while streaming. Just imagine what those numbers would look like if I actually managed to get around to overclocking?!

                  You should be proud of your build. You will always have those from Intel saying you can do better with intel parts..Not true ,An I have an Intel cpu .I had always had AMD

                  builds since my first one with an AMD Duron ,good ol socket A   But after my last AMD build with the 4800  I wanted to try an Intel cpu ,and have been with Intel since now with my 4770K .But building AMD systems is much lower cost and easier on the wallet and still does just as good as the Intel counterpart. I just wish AMD would have released another FX chip instead of holding on to the 8350 and the 9570  until Zen comes out . Now I am hoping that Zen delivers everything it promises to .If it does,BAM! I will switch back to AMD in a heartbeat . So I completely understand where you are coming from ,although I myself am not a Intel elitists hahah I just happen to like both companies.And I still use a AMD gpu . Again, nice build and always be proud of your builds and ignore the haters
