Well, I apologize for doing so. My sincerest apologies to anyone who took my misinformation seriously.

I have since learned the 390 is better. I will not be updating the build, as I am currently working towards getting my gaming comp and don't have much time to be on here.

Thanks bud. I have since learned more about AMD and have improved my knowledge about GPUs. I don't appreciate the comment nonetheless. I had a bit of misinformation and was just confused.

Not muted actually. Simply took a break and did some research on AMD and NVIDIA. I have since learned AMD is better.

I have since learned more about AMD and agree with this statement.

If you'd read more about h110 vs h170, you'd realize that it does. http://www.gamersnexus.net/guides/2099-intel-chipset-comparison-z170-h170-h110

I recommend the GTX 960 or 950.

MY MISTAKE. I was thinking of HDDs, RAM has MHZ. Anyway, my point is the same. 2133 MHZ will soon be the standard.

CAS levels are almost unnoticeable if you're just gaming (the main purpose for this build). The RPM of the DDR4 memory sticks, however, make a major performance in the long run. Soon enough, 2133 RPM will be the standard for performance. Great for future proofing.

Sorry, but the 390 just can't beat the 970. The 390 suffers from heating issues, causing it to run at a reduced clock rate after being used for about 1-2 hours depending on how graphically intensive the game you are playing is. The 970 does not struggle with such issues. The 970 also has great gaming features; such as shadow play. The 390 doesn't. The 970 has better drivers, so the games you play won't be absolute horse **** when you first play them. The 390, however, does not. Yes, the 390 beats out the 970 in short term benchmarks, but the 970 maintains its performance.

You can get a 750 ti then, it has around the same performance as the 950/370 for the same price as a 370.

In short term benchmarks, that is. The 390 heats up quick and will reduce it's clock speed in order to maintain a stable temp. This highly reduces graphical speed.

DO NOT GET THE R9 390; the GTX 970 beats it like it's nothing. The 970 can run at higher clock rates thanks to it's... well... ability to keep itself cool. The 390 will heat up FAST, thus forcing it to run at a reduced clock rate (less graphics speed). The 970 also has better drivers, so the games you buy WON'T be absolute horse **** when you first play them! You're also going to want to get a 1tb hard drive if you want to actually store games... or really any big files tbh.

I can see that you already purchased this, but let me make some corrections in case anyone actually wants to buy this PC. The GTX 960 beats the R9 380. The myth that the 960 can't handle 4gb of VRAM is just a flat out lie. The 960 can run at an amazingly high clock rate as well, the 380 will heat up easily though, and will be forced to run at a reduced clock rate, thus reducing graphical speed.

Get the GTX 950. It's much better, it can run at a higher clock rate than the 370. The 370 has heating issues, so it will be forced to run at a lower clock rate once it reaches too high of a temperature. The GTX 950 also has better drivers, so your games won't be absolute horse **** when you first play them.

I recommend the GTX 950 instead of the 370. The 950 not only has better core clock, but it stays at a low temp almost all the time! The 370, however, will easily heat up and be forced to run at a reduced clock rate in order to maintain a stable temperature, thus slowing down your computer.

the b150 platform is mainly for those who wish to use the 6th gen CPUs for business purposes, and can't overclock the 6600K. If you want to overclock, then get a z170 mobo. If you don't, get the 6600 and an h170 instead. Maybe add a kingston 120gb ssd as well. Other than that, great job on this build.

Yep, no problem. Make sure to look at the hyper 212 evo as well, switching to it will cover the costs of switching to the 4690K.

960 beats the 380 definitely. I'd recommend switching to a 4gb 960. I'd also recommend switching to an intel CPU like the 4690K. You don't really need that high end of a cooler either, just get a hyper 212 evo. You'll get basically the same cooling for much less.

I recommend getting a single GTX 970 instead of dual 380s. You'll run into games not being compatible with crossfire, HUGE temperatures, and eventually having to switch to an NVidia card.

This isn't really what you NEED to game at 4k. I'd say you only need a single 980 ti to game exceptionally well at 4k.

I'm not saying it to that extent. I'll admit, the wording was a bit weird on that. What I meant is that people will have opinions and people will have other opinions. Sometimes people hold an opinion so close that it becomes a core belief. I think this applies to you, and others. Not trying to insult you or any AMD fanboys out there. I just kind of wish people would be more open minded to others' opinions.

I don't believe the 4460 has a turbo mode. What I do know is that it is clocked at 3.2Ghz (I think)

The performance is admittedly better. I'd compare the 390 to a man on steroids after a week without steroids (playing a game for a while) and the 970 as a man who works out regularly, but stops for a week as well. The man with steroids can't handle almost anything he was doing before, the muscle wore off. The man who had natural muscles was able to get back into his routine and only have a bit of a minor issue, not being used to the stress as much as before. I personally believe that the 970 is a much better card, but some people just can't be helped, so I'll let you have your opinion.

Good. You can still buy a 4690K and just not overclock, just run it on turbo mode. That will put it to the max that will not affect the overall stability of the cpu.

It's good, it just cannot beat the 970 in long term situations.

In terms of overall worth, I'd say your other build is more bang for the buck, but if you want to have a lower budget, stick with this. This build is fine, it'll just perform a bit worse than the other. To save a bit of money, I'd recommend switching to the cooler master hyper 212 evo. It provides basically the same performance as the one you have there, for much less.

Don't worry, I fully understand you. If you're using 7 then at least use a lower priced part to represent 7.

Even with good airflow the 390 will heat up fast. The 970 is fine until it goes into the last .5 gig, and you won't even need to use more than 3.5 gigs of VRAM if you're just running at 1080p.

It's fine if you want to have a 1600 RPM memory instead of 1866. Most motherboards require you to overclock your memory to achieve 1866 anyway, so you'll end up just running at 1600 most of the time anyway.
