Do it it's a very good card, sure you could get the rx480 for the a similar price but the Sapphire rx470 looks cool and stays cool under loaf which is what you want
Awesome bro, battlefield 1 looks the business. Apparently the AMD FX 6300 isn't good enough to handle BF1, but we'll see. Good luck on your build, it is an expensive hobby but totally worth it. The GTS 8800 got sold to a dude online for around $20NZ probably so he can heat his room, that thing got crazy hot, been thrashed and overclocked to hell.
Thanks man! The RX 470 is a beast and it runs really well with the fx 6300, had no problems yet but haven't really worked it too hard, been running Lego worlds on highest settings, Minecraft, euro truck sim 2 on ultra, audiosurf 2 on ultra and trackmania on highest settings, hasn't had any problems at all
that is true, but there are some really cool cases available if you are willing to spend extra bux
I would love any suggestions as to what are great games to play and because I'm raised by consoles, what a good controller would be, I'm mud on the keyboard and mouse!
That is weird, we were just watching Star Wars Episode VII this morning.
Thanks, they are indeed and the RX 470 stays cool as a cucumber! the old GTS 8800 got so hot you could literally cook a potato on it!
We used Rustoleum sunshine yellow. It's great because it adheres to plastic quite well.
Haha yeah we kinda got carried away with the whole RGB lights deal and forgot about the budget for a bit.
I love it! The girl one looks cute also
Yeah plug that sucker in son!
Nice set up bro, I have been planning a similar build for weeks now, going with the SW Blue Tesseract case, same PSU but going for the AMD FX 6300 and a Deepcool Maelstrom 120T water cooler so I can OC that biarch. GPU is the sapphire radeon 480 8 GB. Your MOBO looks better than my choice, I might shell out a few more coins and get that.
Going for that black and blue themed console killing machine.
