    hi guys some time ago i made a thread like this but it was nvr 100% sure what things I would get, well i guess i got all narrowed down execpt 1 thing cooler!

    MOBO:
    http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/291189/asrock-990fx-extreme3.html

    PROC:
    http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/320015/amd-fx-8350-black-edition.html

    MEM:
    http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/284488/corsair-vengeance-lp-cml8gx3m2a1600c9.html

    GPU:
    http://tweakers.net/pricewatch/387009/msi-radeon-r9-280-gaming-3g.html

    my previous case & 750W unused Corsair PSU will be reused + 2x 750GB Harddisk's although I could always swap them out for 2x1.5TB

    since I game on a 50" fullHD tv which is also my primary screen, it'll prolly handle all current games and most newer games @1080 +30fps +max settings, maybe even throw in 2x4AA or atleast FXAA right??

    Games I'm dying to play GTA5 / WatchDogs / Dead Rising 3 / Dead Island 3

    So lets say I leave all un-overclocked to get low as possible temps
    sound/noise wont be a problem for me since i have bad hearing & tinnitus
    (but my GF shouldn't get upset by blazing sounds all the time)

    hope this is enough info for you awesome guys/gals to help me decide :nerd:

    O and last but not least I want advice... in theory I could wait with the build until GTA5 gets released BUT this coming winter I would like to play obviously , so if any1 think there will be some awesome release in the pipeline soon which surely would have me postponing the build like a really really good price/performance new type GPU??

    edit: I will b adding just 1x 3TB HD for now and in future get a SSD for OS

    Personally, I'd ditch the AMD CPU and go Intel. If you'd already had an AMD mobo then fine, just upgrade the CPU but since you're upgrading both the CPU and the mobo I would definitely go Intel.

    Your gfx card is fine, and should OC pretty well if my 280 is anything to go by (I get 1175/1550).

    This isn't too much above your budget on CPU and you get get a half decent H97 mobo for very reasonable money.

    In regards to the cooler go for this

    Id say go for an AIO watercooler. Its quiet and effective.

    Zalman full copper heat sinks. I have used them constantly and they are perfect for cooling.

    They are big though, very big.
