DON'T get a cheap GPU. As LTT showed in this video , the i7 6700's integrated graphics OUTPERFORMED the GT 730 which is miles ahead of the HD 6450. So, I would say spend like $50 and go for a HD 7750, HD 7770, and HD 7850 area GPUs which are relatively cheap and provide great performance for budget titles. :)

I'm guessing it is the motherboard. CPUs rarely fail if ever while motherboards are at the highest risk IMO of getting fried especially since it is exposed and could get shocked form anywhere.

It is the only part that I or my friends have ever fried (It was my friend's MSI H81M motherboard. One of my friends CPUs overheated but that was because his little cousin overclocked high 4690k to 5 volts so it wasn't DOA and damn that must've hurt)

I would recommend telling ASRock or the place your purchase the motherboard from (Newegg, Amazon etc.) about this, they will likely send you a replacement one quickly.

GTX 970s used go for $180 which is tempting considering that the cheapest RX 480 is $230.

Ok. In GTA: V there are 4 levels of settings: Normal, High, Very High, and Ultra. On my HD 7870, I get 55FPS everything on "high". Does this change any of your thoughts?

I have a really old 900p monitor (Plasma I believe; made in 2008) so I need a replacement for this eye sore. But I will definitely consider your idea.

How about an i3 6100 w/ a RX 480 (or similar GPU) running:
GTA: V
1920 x 1080
Very High Everything

This is my situation 90% of the time ATM

I have the same PC (not my main rig OFC) But I was also going to pimp it out a bit with more RAM ans an R7 240/GT X10 so I could create a COD: BO2 for my little brother to use with me. I love this kind of **** too.

Get a better CPU as your first upgrade if you edit and record for YouTube. A $180 i5 will be a decent upgrade while not breaking the bank. Other than that, +1.

Try looking at cable management videos on YouTube and begin to manage those cables. Look to do them when you have a decent amount of time as good cable management will make your PC 10/10.

You need a Z170 motherboard to overclock. My motherboard is only a H110 motherboard. So no, I haven't/can't overclock my CPU on this motherboard.

You should have "skimpe" on your CPU cooper and have gotten an i5 4690k. It is only $40 more so you would have had $35 for a CPU cooler. And you can get more performance in the future. +1

Overclocking the GPU is a lot easier than overclocking the CPU. When you OC the GPU, you don't even have to restart the PC to change the clock. +1 for a great build.

This claims that an Pentium G3258 @ 4.8GHz outperforms a i3 4330 by a small margin. If you do the math, a Pentium G3258 at 5+ GHz will probably match a Skylake i3 6100.
