runesmite14Such as GSync, or PhysX.

AMD has FreeSync, which is just as good, if not better, and the monitors are 50-100 dollars cheaper.

And you can run PhysX on CPU, although not many games support full out PhysX. Not many games can use it as a core function, as it's not very optimized for even nVidia GPU's.

I can see a few reasons someone would want an NVidia over a AMD. Such as GSync, or PhysX. However, if neither of those terms rung any sort of bell in your head, you're probably fine going with an AMD GPU.

And no, I'm not giving you an Nvidia GPU because an Nvidia GPU costs more than the AMD GPU of equivalent power.

I'm 14, doesn't mean I can't build a decent PC. Why only an nVidia graphics card?

I wouldn't be going on a forum filled with young children to ask for advice on PC building. I'd look for professional help.

Two people that are present now, are "professional".


@OP, go with Randoms build. It'll be best for you. No need for an nVidia GPU, don't know why anyone would get one, unless you're looking at the 970/980's. (Which your not, your budget won't allow that.)

This is what I'd recommend.
Considering that you do have a microcenter about a 20-30 minute drive from you, this means that you can save some money by going there.
