Need Help With My PC Build

#1SigmaNinja117Posted 7/12/2014 3:08:19 PM
Hey, can you guys let me know if this is a good PC build? I need it primarily for streaming, but it needs to be able to run games at above average settings. The parts are in the picture below.

Also, I have a few questions:

1. Is it better to get 2 4GB RAM or 1 8GB RAM?

2. Is GDDR necessary for my build?

3. Should I go for AMD or Nvidia? I've heard pros and cons for both.

4. What about the SATA HDD?

1: either way, doesn't make enough difference to effect performance.
2: on that rig, won't effect performance to a considerable degree.
3: AMD tends to run hotter and their drivers aren't as optimized, however they're cards are generally at a lower price, so take your pick.
4: the sata is considerably faster, but whether or not to have one is decided mostly by budget.

1. Depends on how many slots your motherboard has and whether you plan to upgrade by adding more.
2. No.
3. Nvidia.
4. If your motherboard supports it, do it.

Always go with two sticks of RAM if doing a new build. Then you can run in dual channel and still upgrade later if you want.
