    Should I upgrade anything in my PC?

    Here is my build:


    GPU: Saphhire R9 390x (Triple Fan, OC)
    CPU: i5-4690k
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB, 2133 MHz
    Mobo: MSI Gaming Z97
    PSU: EVGA Supernova G2 650w
    Cooler: CM Hyper 212 Evo
    Case: Phanteks Enthoo Pro M
    SSD: Samsung 850 evo 256 GB
    HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM

    I mainly game at 1080p however planning to go 1440p. A friend told me that a 390x is already overkill for 1080p and that I won't have any issues at 1440p, but I wanted to get some advice first.

    Yeah, that's more than fine for 1440p gaming. Might lag behind a bit if you want to run modern titles in ultra though.
    Although if you're happy with 1080p gaming just stay there, maybe upgrade to a 144Hz monitor.

    Already have a 144Hz monitor, but I thought about getting a 1440p one soon

    Not a bag GPU but should sell it and buy 1060 or 1070. 1080 if you wanna run 1440p with practically no problems. Everything else looks good ��

    Newer titles will have you turning a few settings down at 1440.
    But overall the specs are good, I would just work on the aesthetics if thats your thing

    I was hoping to go all red but the sapphire was on such a massive discount on black friday that I couldn't say no, especially to triple fans.

    Any particular reason you didn't want to go with water cooling?

    a better gpu/cpu can never hurt.
    but no you don't really need an upgrade

    I believe the cooler master is just as efficient as budget water coolers. I'll be upgrading one day to a proper water cooler with pipes and an external pump, but that will be when I go 4k
