I am a former computer technician and interested in building systems. I am a huge AMD fan but one that will admit that Intel has the advantage at the moment (Zen may change that). Right now my main system is powered by an AMD A10-7850K overclocked to 4.56GHz with a R9 290 overclocked to 1.05GHz from the stock overclock of 1GHz.
I play various different games including Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward, and a ton of Steam games. Also just started running Forza 6 on PC. Runs at 60fps on my current hardware at 1440p.
