Default Re: Thought about building a new system

Ok I basically just upgraded my current build thats a few years old now with the following:

1 x ($299.99) CLUB 3D royalKing CGAX-R928X7O Radeon R9 280X 3GB

1 x ($114.99) G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 1866

1 x ($109.99) Intel 530 Series SSDSC2BW180A4K5 2.5" 180GB SATA III SSD

Everything is getting transferred to a 1 x ($59.99) LIAN LI PC-A05FNB Black Aluminum ATX Mid Tower...which is super nice and all aluminum for the price.

And I'll be looking at a 1 x ($149.99) ASUS VS248H-P Black 24" 2ms HDMI LED Backlight display instead of an old 720p 32" TV.

Also saved $235 or so scoring black friday deals.

Passed on a new CPU/motherboard setup as BF4 doesnt seem to care about older CPU's, benchmarks I saw showed maybe 5-10% difference at most between my quad core Phenom II and some of the latest i7's. Maybe next year I'll step that up and add another R9 280X in crossfire, but this should be fine for now.
