    matter of opinion, although i think the same.

    to your question, nearly anything can run cod on max. This should be able to. btw. stop playing cod, if I hear people saying their playing cod I imagine 12 year old little russian faggots.

    Cool
    You can get an I3 a cool case all that for 300 but if you want to play bf3 (min) or mw3 (max) u ill have to drop almost 400 on a gfx card.

    Not really worth gettign a 500 PC if you can save do it if you cant well its up to you.

    Matter of opinion? No. Nvidia have a longer life span and less heat is generated. No perks with AMD.

    + 7000 series absolutely killed Nvidia's 600 series in power.
    + More frequent driver updates these days.
    + Game bundles.
    - Your so called "longer life span" is unproven and a matter of your opinion.
    - As well as the 'generating less heat' thing... UNPROVEN.

    I'm not a fanboy of either company, but i'm sick of people sticking up for Nvidia just because they used to destroy AMD.
    Things have changed.
    helt ensam.

    Well for CPU's...

    So yeah, life span can sometimes be strange with AMD's...
    Power isn't everything.
    You get game bundles with Nvidia - for instance I got MLL with mine.

    LOL.... Just because an AMD CPU frys doesn't mean an AMD GPU will...
    You do know that AMD is the same as ATI for GPUs... AMD DO NOT MAKE THE GPUS - ATI DO.

    They just do business under AMD because AMD bought them out.

    And yes AMD CPU's run hot because they have more parts than Intel CPU's, we learned this during my computer course.
    That video is not logical at all, there is no heatsink. Tests can't be considered true until they are done in a logical everyday environment.

    Moral of the story is: AMD GPU's are not AMD CPU's... Stop comparing the two!

    Power isn't everything.
    Bullshit... You're telling me a gamer cares more about energy efficiency than raw power?.... No!

    Nice! I'll stick with Bioshock Infinite, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider & Crysis 3 though...

    I know they're different, just lowers the reputation of AMD personally.

    I don't even know why you guys are getting so off-topic, the OP asked if his build is good, not if AMD or NVIDIA is better.


    OnTopic - I'm pretty sure so.
