get a case and good power supply for starters. next would be an SSD. last a cpu cooler so you can overclock your CPU well.

i'm not sure if i've answered you well, though.

try to be more clear in what you are asking. try telling what you have now.

  • I'm just throwing in an idea on what you could do but maybe someone else can give another suggestion. And you do not have to be rid of your current GPU either. You can still keep the R9 280 if not need to upgrade.
