Critique my 1440p build
drsmooth posted a topic in System BuildsHello Overclockers! Having just joined I would like to say hi before I ask about my build. I will be using this build for primarily gaming, movie watching, and web browsing. Please let me know if I can save some money without sacrificing quality or performance. Hoping this build will be able to slay Witcher 3 and Battlefield 4 on max settings. I put the 850w power supply in because I plan on doing sli when this build starts to wane on performance. Plan on overclocking the CPU to around 4.0-4.2, nothing serious. Probably will leave the GPU as is. Just going to use my Sidewinder X6 keyboard and X5 mouse since I am so used to them and like them. Thank you.

New Graphics Card Recommendation
Sinikel posted a topic in Video Cards and MonitorsSo i am currently running a Radeon 4890HD (Old, I know!) and I do a heavy amount of gaming. I wanted to see if I could get any solid recommendations for around $200 US that would be a noticeable difference that what I am currently running. (PCI-E Cards only) The card can not be incredibly beefy either due to limited space in the casing and using a smaller motherboard. Any Advice? Games I play: MMOs - Final Fantasy A realm unborn (Beta stages atm) First person shooters - Counter Strike but will eventually play BF4 once released. Appreciate any help!
