Hello, boys and girls, welcome to the second System Builders Guide for January 2015. Here we’re going into the mid-range builds, which typically offer you much more bang for your buck and a good deal of performance hidden away behind software sliders and BIOS settings to increase clock speeds. This is the second guide to have a AMD FX processor make an appearance and I hope it’s not going to be the last. On the eve of the GTX 960 launch, it’s also pretty surprising to see Nvidia’s GTX 970 come down in pricing as slowly as it has in recent weeks. Is Nvidia sitting on their laurels, knowing they have little real incentive to engage in a price war with AMD? I believe that’s the case, although our readers may say differently (and if you do, chat about it in the comments!). On to the builds!
