That video card will be a nice upgrade to your rig. Because of the age of your PSU, it might be time to consider replacing that as well. 

 

I'm sure someone more knowledgeable than I will be along with some solid answers, but in all honesty that's a perfectly reasonable upgrade for your rig.

Ducktape! Everyone should have it in their house :p

^ that as well.

There is a clear difference between 30 and 60 fps, though some may not be bothered by it, for the most part. I honestly don't care if I get a solid 60 FPS 100% of the time, like some do. However, I'll also add that games do look better on PC when compared to console releases. A friend of mine own's a PS4, and both Far Cry 4 and Dying Light do not hold up nearly as well when compared to my PC. There are graphical options that are not reflected on the PS4 (though you have to look closely for them). Also, the draw distance is absolute trash on the PS4 when compared to PC cranked on high, or max. The draw distance, and detail from so far away makes a HUGE difference in my personal opinion.

thinking of going with

CPU: Intel i5 4690k

Mobo: ASUS Maximus VII HERO

RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8gb C13-5708   PC12800 DDR3 1600MHz

GPU: MSI GTX 970 

SSD: Crucial MX100 Series 512gb 

PSU: Corsair CS Series CS750M 750 Watt  (if I want to add a 2nd GPU in the future)

Case: Probably the Rosewill THOR V2 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147053&ignorebbr=1&cm_re=PPSSBGDRYLXVJN-_-11-147-053-_-Product

A few changes I would personally make would be the following.

 

Mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130779 (or at least something much cheaper than the Maximus series. I doubt you need any of the extra "bells & whistles" that you're paying a hefty premium for.)

 

GPU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150696 (same price as the GTX 970 you're looking at, but a much faster card. Also, I own a GTX 970, and I totally would have sprung for a 290x if the cost was similar at the time I bought mine.)

 

Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147185 (Much cheaper than the one you linked, but just as functional. There are literally dozens to choose from that would be cheaper, and not total junk.)

 

Generally, if you're going to go with a SLI or Crossfire setup, do it now. It doesn't make any sense to spring for a second video card in a year or two, when a new generation of videocards at that point in time would probably be a faster solution. Also, unless you have the need to run an eyefinity setup, or you want to push a 4k monitor, there is no real, current, reason to use more than one video card.

I had fun for about 3 month straight. I've also been back a few times since, but I don't see anything in the expansion that interests me enough for the box price. 

 

I'll probably check out the expansion at some point when it's on sale, but that's about it. 

OP, you will be better served long term if you save a bit more and spend at least 600-800 for a decent budget build. That or just break and buy a console if you require immediate gratification. 

 

Delayed gratification is preferable, IMO. I just don't think you have the willpower based upon your prior purchase, and push for a build based upon a dismally small budget. 

This news makes me a saaad panda. 
Looks like you missed the deal they had last week ($10). I still think the game is completely worth the price of admission.

The OP indeed needs to pick up a history book or 2.

 

Even today in our "enlightened" world only 40% of the world is considered "free" and this number is dropping. Keeping a narrow 1st world view of democracy and freedom is a position of ignorance against the tides of history.

I'm fairly sure he has bigger issues than that, since I'm not quite convinced he really knows what "tyranny" means.

Wit the exception of House Dres' slaves, each faction's people seem to be getting treated fairly by their rulers, and not oppressed like they would be under an actual tyrannical regime.

Out of all the comments, up to yours i havent felt a need to respond, but yours really takes the cake. Saying that its not tyranny when one over lord makes the only choice as to what happens. All 3 factions are controlled by one person, yet you seem to think its not tyranny, because some of the people are treated alright........

You are describing a dictator, not a tyrant.

So, basically you want someone to tell you why the game is the best thing since sliced bread. To top it off, you wish for this person to hold your hand and tell you how to play the game.

All of this, of course, is due to the fact that you do not wish to research anything your self.

Maybe this game isn't for you? Or MMO's in general, for what it's worth.
Unless there is a serious advantage to using more than 4 cores, I highly doubt there will be a performance hit to those with a decent i5, or equivalent.

Minimum vid card is pretty ridiculous, though.
Check G2A when you get a chance. They usually have it for dirt cheap.

Does that make owning a smartphone a further requirement for this game?  I'd have to factor that into the expense of playing.

 

Back in the digital transition era, I kept an analog phone because it cut through all the 'enter your number' digital malarkey, and generally got you connected to a person at support instead of endless menus designed to convince you to give up.

If you have a GMail account you can use your free Google Voice account to create a number and send/receive SMS on your PC. It's limited use, but it would work for this type of purpose. You could always create a throw away Google account, if nothing else.

 

Honestly, I'd never give them my real number. 

I apologize if I came off as argumentative, that was not my intention. First off, you and Quizz know a lot more than I do, I only posted the results I was able to dig up. I honestly like the cheaper route and I have no intention of buying a G-Sync monitor anytime soon. I was just confused by the fact that from what I was able to gather with my google-fu skills I was under the impression that AMD's solution was only going to be directly supported by AMD's GPU line.

Please, correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't the Freesync monitors only made to work on specific AMD video cards? if this is true, whats the difference between Freesync and G-Sync, outside of the fact that Freesync is based off of an open standard while G-Sync is a closed standard?

 


Freesync is designed to work via the DisplayPort standard - so theoretically, any GPU that supports the updated DisplayPort standards can with with Freesync, and monitor manufacturers don't have to include extra hardware, and video card manufacturers don't have to pay AMD licensing fees for official driver support.

That being said, any other video card manufacturer could also work with G-Sync, the difference being that the monitor manufacturer has to buy the G-Sync module from nVidia, and the video card company would likely have to pay licensing fees in order to include driver support.

So GSync right now is exclusive to nVidia, but it wouldn't necessarily have to be that way if Intel or AMD wanted to license it. Freesync is developed by AMD, but has explicitly been made an open standard, and the only thing preventing Intel/nVidia from supporting it as well is for them to include support with their driver.

AMD's FAQ about Freesync states otherwise. 

 

"To take advantage of the benefits of Project FreeSync, users will require: a monitor compatible with DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync, a compatible AMD Radeon™? GPU with a DisplayPort connection, and a compatible AMD Catalyst™ graphics driver. AMD plans to release a compatible graphics driver to coincide with the introduction of the first DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync monitors."

To me it's no different if the reasoning is that you can't use a G-Sync monitor on non-Nvidia hardware in the future.

 

I did a quick google search and I didn't see anything pop up as far as adaptive sync other than the Freesync monitors that will be hitting the market soon.

 

For what it's worth, I do run an Nvidia card and I have been very interested in obtaining a G-Sync monitor. However, I'm holding out till it looks like long term support is all but guaranteed. Plus, I think the prices are a bit too high for my wallet for the time being. If there are going to be monitors that will do exactly what G-Sync does, for less, and supports my current video card (GTX 970) I'll keep an eye out for them.

How about this one? Also 240 gig and for $80.

For instance, the proposed i5-4690k with the motherboard and the 290 for 840 seems like a real winner to me.  I mean, as long as those base parts are good (not familiar with the RAM manufacturer), that seems right up my alley with the ability to overclock if needed in the future.  Would anyone recommend a AMD build over that in that price range?  Is the 4790k worth the 80 price increase?

 

AMD does not have a competitive alternative to 4690k.

I got only 2 comments to build above:

1) That EVGA PSU does not seem...trustworthy to me.
2) 256GB SSD seems low. While you have additional storage of 1TB, many games these days use their distribution sw and won't allow you to download the installation files - ie. Steam, Glyph, Origin etc., thus you will need to store all direcetly on that SSD.

Modern games takes easily up to 25-50GB of space.

I don't know about Glyph, but both Steam and Origin allow you to install games wherever you want. It has been this way for a very long time and it's very user friendly on both platforms.

 

It is completely reasonable to go with a 250(ish) GB SSD along with a large storage drive.
