http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/qth4GX - What are your thoughts on the build? Also, what graphics card should i get, the one in the build or http://www.amazon.co.uk/SAPPHIRE-AMD-Graphics-Card-DDR5/dp/B00IRTXPBM/ref=lh_ni_t?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE the one in the build is more expensive but faster, will i be able to notice the difference between the cards? Will the PSU be enough?

I would go with the Sapphire card because they only work with AMD, however if you can afford it I would get the Vapor-X version of the card, I have it only my 270X and it runs cool and quiet. Also these are more expensive options but they will help, go with the fx6350 it is an overclocked 6300, and the higher end version of the mobo, the asus m5a99fx pro r2.0, the newer chipset will help with the overclocked cpu.

Already bought everything apart from the GPU and the PSU. Why is the Sapphire version of the r9 280 better?

It is just a better cooler in my opinion then the windforce and it is clocked higher the sapphire dual-x and windforce card.

Well i can only get the Dual-X or the Windforce, so is it worth the extra money to get the Windforce?
