This is the build i have after asking this community a few times for advice, and id like to know if im over buying anything. Such as spending money on a brand when a cheaper version does the same.
How is the monitor choice, and is the r9 280 worth the price jump over the r9 270?
And the case,im not overly attached too, is there one that isnt too pricey (above 100) with good air flow?
Almost forgot, im not overclocking anything, and this is for gaming at 1080p at as high of settings as i can get. Ty for any and all help.

Looks great! Everything is compatible and should work nicely.
The monitor is popular and has good ratings on Newegg.
The r9 280 is definitely worth the price jump IMO.

I edited the build to put in a better CPU. The new 4690 gives you more performance for the same price.
