So it was my Birthday and I made out with a Logitech c525 and a Line 6 TunePort Ux2 for my PC. But I also made out with $260 cash....maybe more as I still haven't seen my pops yet.
So I need some guidance. Been thinking about Xfire 7850s, a better 1 card solution, or newer PSU (I'm tempted to bite on this - http://www.overclock.net/t/1434592/newegg-seasonic-x-650-gold-69-99-ar-fs/0_20) But I have a Antec TP3-650 that can handle the Xfire 7850s just fine. Maybe a Kraken x60. Or some how find a 27in 1440p monitor for $300! I also have been using a desk that isn't really made for computer work..and the chair is horrible. Both are Thomasville furniture...but 20 years old. My ass hurts tongue.gif

OK you spend my money....rig is below.

Knowing myself I'd upgrade both the chair and desk before your buns go flat but you're looking at someone who sits 14 hours a day lol

Get a 7970 for sure. I just got mine and I can't believe how fast it is.

Truly impressive. I can finally play crysis 3 maxed with 40-68fps

I would go with a XFX 650w power supply- $80

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817207014

A MSI HD 7850 TF- $150

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127663

That sets you back $230 not counting $20 in rebates but we won't count on them now. Now depending on what your pops gives you I would get a decent office chair with the remaining seeing how they can be had for $80-$100 because the arse will appreciate it after hours on gaming.

You also could sell the old PSU to recoup a little cash to go towards your chair.

A used 1440p. I have a Qnix QX2710, and it's worth it's money 2-3 times.
I'd get a monitor like this one over a new GPU any day.

Save up for a new GPU later. It's a shame to have a bad-ass rig with a crap monitor... (That ASUS isn't crap ofc, but a 1440P pls is just... epic)
