Thanks, everybody, for the responses.

I live in Florida, USA, and I will be at 1080p. The parts that I listed are what I have to work with.

There are a bunch of used 7970s and 7950s on eBay for around 180-250 USD, check some of those out, and also a i3 or i5 will be up to you because it depends on the game you play. Get an ivy chip so you do not have to pay as much for the mobo, and check out the ASRock Z75 Pro 3, amazing price and a great mobo, I have one. The i5 will be quite a price hike for you though, so you need to decide if you NEED it for the games you play.

I know this is none of my business, but why do you have to sell the CPU, motherboard, RAM, etc. - you're going to take a huge loss on the original purchase prices, and gain a new PC that is less capable - and yet you still have $500+ cash to spend.

I guess I'm confused about the motivation to sell existing equipment - if it's because you need money, then sell off the GPU and one of those SSDS and get a cheap GPU (think GTX 750 Ti) and just suffer with the lower gaming performance and less storage (maybe play less, work more). Sounds like money is tight, I wouldn't spend -anything- on technology, save the rest for food and rent.

also you can combine the xfx psu with the 2nd or 1st rig and put a fx 6300 and a 760gtx
