well what sort of games do you play?
the expensive part here wouldbe the graphic card if so.

Level 7
i like games like LoL and GW2 but i also wanna play more games like bf4 bless and other games you can play just because of the art work

look at the price of the 280 or the 290 ati cards.
or nvidia if you are going whit that look at the 780 ( it have the new arcitecture gpu cpu ).
you would need a 750w psu.
amd or intel based pc??
intel look at the i5 or i7 ( last one is hyper tread ( lga 1150 )
platform ( if newest ) z87 motherboard ( lga1150 ) whit that socket.
amd is stil not out whit a new gen cpu yet so the mobo is stil on the pcie 2.0 exept of one board i know of ( sabretooth mobo ) that have a pcie gen 3 on it.
how mutch ram?
ssd as a minimum just for os and a few smal programs only i advise minimum a 120gig.
what sort of form factor mother board do you want?
sli/xfire option???
over clocking?

Im leaning more towRds the amd cards becuase of coin minning 8 gb is fine I agree with thw ssd any form factor and im up to the idea of dual cards
I would also like upgrade ability unless im going with a mitx I can also give old parts in the fiance pc when I upgrade I want to start learning how to oc better so some basic oc

Level 14
psu. single card 750w. dual cards 850w.
what cooling solution are you going whit?
air or the closed loop?? ( corsair h70 for example ).

I was thinking closed but that's why I am asking what's better office per performance ratio in my budget

Level 14
this is a build whit out OS ( windows ) and case ->
there you have a m-atx board whit sli/x-fire option on. ( ROG as asked for )

Level 10
At 1100USD, options for a gaming machine are fairly limited. CLICK ON THIS. Those parts are fairly good. If you find it in the forums, Flank3r made a thread benching the A10-7850k. Compared in games against the i5-4670k with an R9 270x for graphics, there was normally a difference of just 1-5 frames, sometimes in favor of the 7850k, sometimes in favor of the 4670k.
Say hi to the next generation.
