Seeing that the new Radeon cards drop at the end of this month for $199 I'm just going to wait till then to get a new card, and then I can have one of the newest greatest cards out there! Depending on how the cooling is on that card I may or may not look into a water cooler for my system. But I highly doubt I'll really need to run much of an OC on the RX 480 from what I've seen. I may actually save up and get a second one to run, because they run AWESOME in crossfire. Once I get that new card, I'll just need to get my 16Gb of ram, and up the speed on that (I have 1600 right now, MOBO can handle 1866, can OC to 2400, doubt I'll get into RAM OC though) And some new drives. After that It's gonna be saving up and buying components for a new PC.
My next build I'd like to run:
CPU: AMD FX 8350 Black
GPU: Radeon RX 480 X2 (Crossfire) or other newer cards if applicable.
RAM: 16GB Corsair (hopefully) 2400 DDR4
PSU: Corsair 750 modular
I can do every one of those upgrades to my current PC except the CPU upgrade (have to run DDR3 RAM though) , because I have a FM2+ MOBO right now. (I CAN however get the A-10 7870k, but Idk how much of an "upgrade" that would be) In all honesty if I run water in my system (even if not) I can OC my current CPU eventually and most likely get as much performance as I'll need, but I really like the 8350.
If I DO keep my current MOBO after I get my other components I'm gonna get a nice slick Corsiar case. I really like the Carbide series. There's one on sale right now that I REALLY want, has the hinged full side window with the finger latch, PSU/HDD cage cover and it looks slick af. Only thing that bums me out is no 5.25" bays. Not the worst thing ever but I like being able to run discs if I need to.
ANYHOW that's all just talk for now. I'm definitley getting some version of the RX480 when it drops though.
This post was mainly to show off my (recently completed) Vault Phones headset. The special colored wires are the only things I need now to complete the whole "set"
So here's the reveal I guess? The headset was supposed to be a darker, more Vault-Tec colored blue than what they were but that's the problem with shopping online haha.
This doesn't look any different but it was chrome before, I used yellow headlight tint to give it a "golden" appearance.
