My current build is

asrock 970 extreme 3 motherboard

Corsair tx750 psu

Radeon 6450 GPU

AMD athlon ii x4 945 denab

Cooler master hyper 212 evo

Kingston hyper x 8g RAM

LG Blu ray drive

Sandisk extreme II 120gb

Windows 7 Ultimate

750gb & 1tb Seagate HDD

The things I will be changing are the GPU to the R9 280, CPU to the FX-8350, and RAM to Gskill ripjaws X 2133. My BIOS is the most recent 1.80. Any precautions or things I'm missing?

It most definitely supports the fx 8350 & 8320 but that's as high as it will go. Found a great deal on one today actually and going to get it. 8320 for $105. Good enough for me! Also found an R9 270 for under $100. Notice I'm not trying to max stuff out here I'm a budget builder. Hence AMD. There is one more issue That I keep going back and forth on which is the RAM and I will post it in the another string but I'd still like to hear thoughts. I know G.Skill should be the way to go but everyone says go with the X ripjaws. Those Mushkins have a better latency, read AND write than both G.Skill! And on top of that the sniper series got better than the X 2 out of three. Love to hear anything and everything!

Oh I put it in the build but it was so small and crappy you probably missed it. I just have one stick of Kingston Hyper X 8g. That's why the graphics card is so crappy. I was upgrading and in the middle the old computer just died so I just got stuff. So out of the 3 types I listed, what do you think?

I did notice the amount of ram,but for your ram did i mean what speed and maybe partnr (can be found with cpu-z->spd tab) so you maybe could get another one to make it 2x8gb.

From those three you linked the snipers.
