My psu is from the Carbon series, which is on a black list on the power supplies, i would rather not risk putting my new parts to the pc with a psu listed on a black list.
Why bother asking for opinions now if your not ready to buy in the near future ?
To me it seems like your perfectly "content" with your setup minus the vga.
If you feel like you need a better card for under 100 bucks.
Check into the nvidia GT700 series, evga and zotac have some cards that will would be on par with its GTX counterpart.
That hexacore I use to own that, be cautious if you oc you know how to.
It will hit 4,0ghz on a artic or zalmin heatsink fan with decent grease that I showed you earlier.
However it will burn out faster if you "DO" oc it 24/7 and the cpu is running at 60%-100% daily with whatever you do extensively.
Do some homework about knowing when to look for good deals in the year.
Most members that have been here long enough will post about deals throughout the year.
Best of luck on your future computer builds.
