So I have a serious buyer willing to buy my computer for $500, maybe $510. I am selling everything in my current build beside my PSU, Case, cooler, and SSD.
-he is getting my old rosewill challenger u3, and my old 600watt PSU
Here is what I am looking at buying for my next build
AMD FX-4130, Asus Radeon R9 270X - System Build - PCPartPicker
I would say its a good upgrade. very slightly better CPU, a better GPU, better ram(the 1866 is also the cheapest so double win!) and better mobo.
-NOTE I need a mobo with a 2xUSB 3.0 IO connector, keep that in mind before you make recommendations.
should I change the GPU to Newegg.com - GIGABYTE GV-R927XOC-2GD Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
? I get BF4 coupon which I could sell for at least $20 (already own bf4) but I don't want something too loud and too hot, especially when summer comes around and I haven't bothered to set up the AC yet. there aren't too many temperature/noise benchmarks online for the card so maybe you guys could help.
also I wouldn't worry about too much PCB sag, you can prevent this by having your power cable to the GPU slightly pulling up.
