I'm about to pull the trigger on this. My plan is to overclock the g3258 for as long as possible (perhaps even liquid cool before too long), eventually move into some crossfire action (hence the psu choice), followed by upgrading the cpu (most likely a i5 4690k).
Do you think this is a good plan for budget gaming?
What kind of results can I expect?
