that'll be fine for all those things. you won't get the frames you want on fallout 4 though with that gpu if you want to play on ultra you'll probably get fps dips in high too.

Yes he will, just turn down god rays, SSAO and some of the shaders and he should be fine. Barely noticeable changes for a significant boost in performance.

You could upgrade to a 390x, switch to a cheaper motherboard and a Xeon E3 1231v3 (locked i7 without integrated graphics)*, upgrade to a 4790k, step up to a higher end psu, get a bigger ssd, get a nicer case, or get a better cooler. 

 

 

*I'd consider switching to a Xeon E3 1231v3 to be more of a lateral move than anything else -- i.e. now games will benefit more from an overclocked quad core, in the future games may benefit more from a quad core with hyperthreading, or they still may benefit more from an overclocked quad core....It's still kind of a guess at this point which case will be the one to actually occur. (you could argue the Xeon would be better as DX12 aims to spread the load across cores more easily, and that consoles also have eight cores....but at the same time, there is a reason why games are still mostly bound to single core performance, and that's because spreading the load equally isn't always all that easy to do, and it can be extremely time consuming to do).

390x seems great and all, but just because of bias due to my friends, id like to stick with Nvidia cards made by EVGA. Also really like the whole Nvidia graphics program thing they have. Im sure Radeon has something like it, but I like Nvidia c:

 

Would upgrading to a 970 be worth it? And also in the build you sent me I realized that he build I made had parts that were kinda expensive, when I could just get other ones cheaper, so thanks!

Unless you need an Nvidia specific feature, I would honestly go with a 390 just because of the extra VRAM. AMD and Nvidia make equally good products, and right now, both of their drivers are kinda trash. And if anything, switching to a 970 is a lateral move at best (performance will be similar to a 390 at 1080p, albeit it will run cooler and be more efficient, but that's a trade I would gladly make for the extra 4gb of VRAM).

If I were to switch to the 970, would it work @ max settings for the titles ive listed, as well as other popular games?

 

The radeon IS another 130$, and im not looking to get TOO serious with gaming, just games like the ones ive listed.. so if the 8GB compared to the 4GB isnt THAT much of a difference id be happy with the quietness of the 970. 

 

So a few things:

-is the upgrade from the 960 to the 970 worth it?

-if it is what else should i change with the graphics card? (is there any better prices for the same performance on my other parts/better compatibility etc?)

 

EDIT: Another thing I plan on running is SFM which is pretty memory intensive I think, so if im going with the 970, hopefully the 4GB will be enough.  Maybe im completely mistaken and SFM just works better based on the amount of RAM you have, not really sure.. last time i got really into the whole computer building thing was when i was dreaming of building one back when the GTX 600 series was the latest and greatest

Where the fuck do you live that an R9 390 isn't about the same price as a 970... 

 

If the 970 is really that much cheaper, then go with the 970.

Yeah, im just gonna go with the 970.. Is my build fine for it? Is there anything I should improve? Maybe you know of some parts that will work better/the same for cheaper? 

 

And will the pc run nicely on a 1440p monitor?

Of course your build is fine for a 970, yes it should be fine for a 1440p monitor on the games you have listed.

Tysm <3 so you think there's anything I could improve? Or any parts that are cheaper and would work just as well?
