You can get an i3 and a 390 for less than $600. Just sayin'

An R9 380 is a graphics card, not a CPU, unless you meant changing the CPU in the current build to an i3. :P

That's what I meant, a Pentium and 480 for $600 is not that huge of a thing, you can get a 390 (no point really as the 480 is as good) and an i3 for the same price. Heck, you can maybe even fit an i5 and a 480 in this build.

1060 is like $10 more than the 480 and its much better

the r9 380 actually was only like 220 the thing about my build is i was stupid and decided that look was better than performance

The weird thing is that I posted this a while ago and for some reason I said $600 for some reason. I don't remember why I thought of that number. Sorry :P

EDIT: "GPU Effective Memory Clock Rate", does this mean the GPU's clock speed? If so, damn it's at 5.8 GHz!

The R9 380 is plently capable of handling 1080@60 FPS. Don't quote me on that.

Things I could tell from the pictures:

UPDATE: i have added 2 new blue led fans that are terribly overpowering to the color and its honestly not as hot as i originally posted but that temp would still be ok being that its using a stock cooler i spent too much money on looks and should really go for performance on my next build

This case seems very similar in design to the P400 from Phanteks, which I'm building in now. If you're gonna use LED strips, I would recommend lining them at the top of the case, instead of on the PSU shroud at the bottom. If you can keep them from shining directly through the window, that would be best for balancing the lighting effect. Also, you may want to try at least one of Thermaltake's Riing fans at the front to bring in some better light from that side. Right now, it looks like it's all just intense under-lighting. (Updated pics may help too.)

The G3258 is what I used in my first gaming rig, and even while overclocking, the temps are super reasonable. You shouldn't have an issue.

As far as upgrades, I would say an SSD for your OS should be high on the list.
