    Default Upgrading my rig

    Current build:

    MSI Z97S Sli Krait Edition Motherboard (new)
    Intel Core i5 4690k Processor (new)
    16GB Corsair/Gskill (4x 4G DDR3 1600mhz
    EVGA GTX 760 SC 2GB Graphics Card (Overclocked)
    Corsair HX-650w 80+ Gold PSU

    Going to upgrade to an R9 390 or 390x as I'd like to move from 1080p to 1440p, depending on budget.

    What is your upgrade budget? Cause you should be able to get a FX-8350 and a GTX 970 to be done with the upgrade.

    Budget isn't limited, If I'm only going to get the two of those then that's roughly a $500 upgrade. Since I'm looking at a couple of months, that's more than enough time to save up. Still want an SSD as well though.

    EDIT: Would upgrading from the 6300 to the 8350 basically be plug and play?

    For SSD get a samsung 850. Any size works fine. If you want to spend a bit more then you could get one of the Intel ssd 700 series.
