  1. Best answer
    Ditch the FX8350 for a FX8300 and the sabertooth for a m5a99fx board, and with the savings, get a r9 380.
    Or get an i5 4460 with a gigabyte ga-b85m-ds3h-a mobo and get a r9 380.
    Don't get that PSU. I am assuming it's the 500B. Get the Seasonic 520w or antec 520w.
  2. the asus pro or evo mobo?
  3. Whichever has the features you need. They're both good. The FX8300 can be had with a cooler bundle on Tiger Direct for $95 if you have a visa credit/debit to pay with, otherwise it's $120.
