FX 6300 + GTX 770, or i5 4670 and 760?

Trying to build a less than $1000 build, and I can go either of these routes and make it I think. It'll be mostly gaming, and definitely a dual monitor setup. I need a monitor, but not Windows (assuming I can indeed bring it over from my laptop). Which way would I be better off going?

4670k+760.

Absolutely the i5 with your budget.

You'll probably find people here who will tell you that a 6300 will bottleneck a 770. I personally wouldn't know, but i wouldn't doubt it, and as such would go with the i5. That will probably last you a lot longer, and by the time the 760 starts showing its age you could more easily upgrade it/throw a second one in than replace your cpu. Not to mention that amd is abandoning their fx line for their apus

I prefer to spend about the same on my CPU as I do on my GPU, erring on the side of spending a bit extra on the GPU, budget permitting. A $120 CPU and $330 GPU just isn't a balanced system at all, $230 and $250 is much more balanced.

How will the 760 do in gaming? I'm sure it'll handle most everything maxed at 1080p, but would it do decently in 1440p?

Pretty unlikely that it will perform maxing things out at 1440P. You can still run things well however, it's a mixture of high-ultra settings for most games as of now.

That's fine, as long as I can get in the upper half of settings in 1440p I'll be happy. I'm sure at that resolution, I wouldn't need much, if any, AA for example. Thanks for the input!


Edit: Also, no thanks to the FX 8350. I'm not a huge fan of AMD lately and if I'm gonna pay that kind of money for a CPU I'll just go with the i5.
