I already bought the Graphics card and i just need help with teh motherboard and RAM man
Mike S.
What GPU did you get?
MSI r9 380 4G
Mike S.
ok, do you have a processor in mind?
a lot of people are telling me intel, but they are wayyy too expensive
AMD seems cheaper
so what you recomend for the GPU i have
Mike S.
They are, what parts do you have already?
just started man, i was just gonna upgrade the one i have right now, but my old PC is way to slow for it, so i decided to build a new one instead, just the GPU
Mike S.
.Have you built a system from screatch before?
lol first time
Mike S.
Are you on a budget?
nothing too expensive, but i can go a bit higher than most people, i would say, not including the GPU 500-650
and not including the case

I am a big fan of buying a refurbed business machine and turning it into a gaming rig, would you be interested in that?
ive never heard of it, can you tell me more about it
Mike S.

Highly upgradable.

i dont know, can you explain how i would do this

Basically, buy this machine and drop a sweet gpu in it and you have a great gaming machine.
really? thats it?
i mean, what about the cooling on it
it seems to be looking to die from heat
Mike S.
modern vid cards are very cool.
if that is a problem add a 80mm fan to the rear.
have you done this before?
Mike S.
Yea, I have 5 machines running, only my main rig is from scratch, all the others are refurbed business machines with better GPU and PSU
how do they do on modern gaming?
like new games

I promise you, this machine will smoke all new games with a GTX 970
