Default New build!/Upgrade!

So a friend made an offer of $775 to me for my computer, hes coming to check it out tomorrow but I told him the specs and stuff.

What do you guys think of me selling my computer without my SSD/HDD for a small upgrade?
Intel Core i5-4460, Sapphire Radeon R9 280, DIYPC Shadow-H01-BK - System Build - PCPartPicker
Really cool case I think... DIYPC Cuboid-R Black USB 3.0 Gaming Micro-ATX Mid Tower Computer Case w/1 x 200mm LED Red Fan x Front, 1 x120mm LED Red Fan x rear -

My research has shown me that the i5 is a bit better in games than my OC'ed FX.
280 is obviously a bit better than 270x
$100 in my pocket.


Intel i5 4640 - XFX R9 280
Corsair Vengeance 8GB - Samsung 850 EVO 250GB Seasonic 620W PSU

Use an extra bit of cash and get a 960.
