MY GAMING/EDITING RIG HAS FINALLY BEEN BUILT!
#1
It took nearly a year of saving up money to get to this point. I know it may not look as good as most of yours' but I feel proud of my first build!

After gaming with a r270x. An rx480 is nice. Keep me posted on that FPS you get playing GTAV. Because with my r270x.... The 40-45fps bottleneck is annnoying. And I know with my current 4790... The game can give me a little more. But idk if it worth it. 980? Or 480?

A 980 wouldn't really make sense, cuz for less money you can get a 1070, which is significantly faster than the 980. 
I'd say the 480 and the 980/1070 are not really comparable, since they are in a completely different class. It depends on what you want to spend. 
The 1070 and the 980 both easily beat the 480 in sheer performance, but not in price/performance.

Good job on the build, congrats!
The only thing that stands out to me is a 5400RPM HDD because it might be slow compared to 7200RPM one for programs installed on it(slower load times, also copying large amounts of data). Otherwise it looks fine.

I just mainly use is as a mass storage drive. All my important programs are installed on the SSD. Besides WD doesn't make a 7200rpm 2TB HD or higher yet. If they did I would have gotten it. But it's still a very quick drive. So as long as I keep it maintained and defragmented, it should do just fine.

It's a very good CPU for gaming. a good quad core is a really all you need. The one I got is not overclockable however as I'm not comfortable in doing that since this was my first build. But even so it'll play many AAA games in 1080p.

The 480 is cheaper than the 1070 but falls short of it performance wise. It does beat the 1060 though, so I'd say it fall in between the 1060 and the 1070. You can still play many games on high setting in 1080p on it but it can also handle 4k if you lower the settings little bit.

I'm trying to aim for late April to join Raccoon Squad officially. I still have to actually BUY the game and train myself a bit in Story mode 1st. I don't want to join in and be all NOOB about controls and asking "How do you shoot again?" ever 5 minutes. Tongue

Nice build, but wondering on why the need for the molex adapter for the case fan? There is a case fan header on the MB. Also, I agree with Randoomon the hard drive, as I am guessing most of your games will be installed on the secondary hard drive and it will bottle neck you performance wise while gaming.

A little extra time for loading the game doesn't bother me.

Also there was only ONE fan header on the MB and there were two case fans. But as it turned out, the big blue fan actually had a MOLEX connection on it as well as a 4 pin. So I didn't need the adapter anyway. But just in case I need an adapter, I have one.
