Best Performance/Budget friendly GFX Compatibility.

Hey guys i was wondering what the best budget friendly/performance Graphics Card i could get compatible with these components that im upgrading.
CPU: FX8350 8 core Vishera from a fx4350 quad core.
MOBO: Sabertooth 990fx from an Asus m5a97 r2.0
RAM: 8gb ddr3 Ripjaw x series, looking to add 8 more of that.
POWER: Thermaltake tr2 600w 12v. Not sure if i should upgrade that or not.

Also, should i wait to put lets say a gtx 750 ti in my pc with my new cpu using the old MOBO or should i wait till i have all my new components? Looking to also get the best fps i can with smooth gameplay, soon to be upgrading to Google Fiber and i was also wondering what the best Monitor i could get would be for a reasonable price. preferably 100-150 bucks.

Thanks a lot!

    ditch the sabertooth
    keep the 8350
    you don't really need 16gb of ram, do you?
    Go for a GTX 960

  2. thanks a lot. i thought about just getting a high end gpu instead and kleeping the mobo i had but i figured it was sorta dated. dont need 16g just want it for streaming/recording purposes cause i use shadowplay
  3. I'd just upgrade to the 8350, gtx 960 and get a hyper 212 and oc it on your current mobo. It seems dated becasue that mobo has been around for like 5 years because AMD still lacks in getting new socket types and manufacturing processes.
