Power isn't much of a problem, since it's my brother's PC, and he can handle the lack of eye candy. I just looked up an i5 and it blows my budget sky high. 960ti...that's another twenty thousand. PSU, yeah, no shit, I'll have to think that one out, thanks fleet.
Jac, I personally have a i7 4790k overclocked to 4.4 ghz, with a 980ti it blows all of the games out of the water, but since this comes out of my pocket, it means I can't afford those...and i also have to pay a hefty Bike EMI this month.
AMD is super cheap. So I can get good configs, yeah, I don't think they'll be able to handle Intel levels but I also have to go for an AMD mobo, so I dunno. I'll have to think that one out.
I want my brother to get to play the Witcher 3 and AC:Syndicate it's his birthday coming up so I thought it'd be a good idea.
