Love the motherboard, CPU, and the cooler! I have to update my pictures soon, but I was looking for a new GPU. How do you like the Radeon RX 480 as opposed too the Geforce GTX 1080?

Compared to the 370 you are running, you will see a little increase but not a lot. If you have a plan to run at 4K then get the GTX 1080. If you game at 1080 and want maxed setting then the RX 480 works great. A friend brought over his 1440 monitor to test the card and the graphics were slow. I game at 1080 on the cheap ViewSonic and it looks great.

the rx 480 can do some games at 1440. doom with Vulkan is a really good example. You can play other games at med/high settings depending on the game at 1440. Also at the moment the price for the 1080 is so high i would rather just get the 1070. However, the 1070 is also having some price problems as well. 4k for the rx 480 is out of the question unless you would like to play csgo, minecraft, wow, league of legends, etc. I was joking on the Minecraft part.

Looks good to me! :) Only thing I'd say is "wrong" is that the PSU is way way way overkill.

Maybe he's going to upgrade it sooner or later.
