    Core Component Upgrades (Urgent Help Needed)

    •• Hi,
    i'm looking to upgrade the cpu, mobo, gpu and possibly psu for my current gaming build. ••

    •• first off, here's the build
    htt p://p cpartpicker .com/p /1Upv O
    (remove spaces, mpgh doesn't like links to pcpp for some reason)
    there is no gpu because my his iceQ 7870 was defective. i'm open to suggestions for this one but please read the rest of this post ••

    •• performance expectations: i like to game. i always try to push my games graphics while keeping a good gps (45+). usually run them about 80 to 90% maxed out so think high out of very high on arma 2 dayz. i will be playing a lot of these new titles like AC4, DayZ SA, etc. (Not BF4) ••

    •• finally, my budget. since i'm still under my parents roof i still get pretty good christmas gifts so i'm probably gonna save the psu and cpu for then UNLESS i need a bigger psu for the gpu i get. as for the gpu and mobo i need to shoot for less than $450 ••

    •• now based off of my current build, lets put together a budget beast (: ••

    Are you wanting to stay on AMD for the processor?

    i would prefer to SOLELY because of the price of intel. if there is a good i5 out there for gaming that can bundle with a mobo for a slight discount, i'd be open to suggestions.

    I think you should get a amd fx 8350 Proccessor for around 200$
    Amazon.com: AMD FD8350FRHKBOX FX-8350 FX-Series 8-Core Black Edition: Computers & Accessories

    and a r9 280x for about 300$ its going to be a bit more pricey but way more performance
    Amazon.com: Gigabyte R9 280X GDDR5-3GB DVI-I/HDMI/2xMini DP OC Graphics Card (GV-R928XOC-3GD): Computers & Accessories

    thank me if i helped you
