I switched the cable out, still the same problem. I connected the monitor with my sister's laptop and no green/purple lines showed up, so I know now that it should be coming from my computer, but I don't know from what component

GPUs seem to drop when competition scales up Example: I bought an R9 270 in April of 2014 for 180 bucks (it was a hell of a deal back then) but now you could buy an R9 290/X if you find a good sale). this happened after the bitcoin craze died down and NVIDIA released their GTX 9XX Series.

In general, especially for GPUs, when a competitor releases a new competing product or new products are released from own company, prices drop Another example would be the FX 8320 and 8350 dropping in price when the new 8320s/8350s came out

the APU includes a GPU inside that isn't really intended for gaming. Since you plan on using a GPU, the 8320 will be better since it has 8 cores,etc. heres more http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/324378-28-versus

I have the same GPU and with Mantle enabled it gets around 40fps w/ BF4 on ULTRA at 1080p I would recommend getting the 8320 instead of the APU you currently use http://pcpartpicker.com/part/amd-cpu-fd8320frhkbox And acquire a 990fx motherboard with that CPU (MSI, ASUS,etc.) Check out my build to see the motherboard i paired with my 8320

at this point i would get a GTX 780. Theyre definitely approaching the 300 dollar mark and if you snag a good deal you can get it for the price of a 770

I have an R9 270 (about the equivalent of this card). That's a heck of a deal, i bought mine for 180 bucks. In terms of running those games, it will run BF4 at Ultra at an average of 50 fps in worst case scenarios on Gulf of Oman,etc. Plus Mantle is being used in BF4 and may be in GTA V although it hasnt been announced yet. http://videocardz.com/49777/list-upcoming-games-support-mantle-api

although SSDs have a low rate of failure, eventually they do die out after a decade (but after that you'll probably want a new one) i would say an SSD shouldnt be a very long term investment and the highest capacity i would get is 500GB

Intel has the upper hand in single core performance while AMD tends to be a bit weaker on that end. Most games will utilize as many cores as possible but in this day and age most games benefit from strong single core performance.

Dang now I have slight buyers remorse. I never really thought about the non K CPUs because they are not overclockable and for some reason the lack of the feature to OC made me look down upon it. But now on second thought, I can see why somebody would pick the more logical route with Intel. Thanks for letting me know, I'll keep that in mind!

I don't want to make any R4 fans mad but the airflow is pretty iffy. There's lots of foam, especially on the non window version, restricting air movement. For airflow I would recommend either getting the Arc Midi R2 or fitting the R4 with some intake fans at the top and exhaust fans at the rear and top

Before taxes and accessories the pc was about 850 not including taxes. I decided to go all out on the case since i knew i would eventually upgrade to high end parts. I too was going to get the GTX 750 although for my purposes i wanted something with a bit more power. So far the MSI r9 270 stays very cool and performs just as i need it to in my games. Sadly i wont be recording for YT because i dont have a recording software like Shadowplay (this is where im jealous of you :P) and i am camera/ microphone shy. But if i am ever presented with the opportunity to capture my gameplay, i definitely will!. My cpu is also performing very well for gaming and browsing. THanks for the comment donut, really appreciate the time you and all the others took to comment on my build!
