    Thanks. I am trying to keep my build as close to $500 as possible. Anything around or under $150?

    I'll consider it thanks. Can you recommend something close to $130? because on amazon that card is about $30 more than you listed.

    Would 500w be enough for that card?

  13. If you're willing to use Jet.com (ancedotally, I've used it with no problems) there's a popular deal right now on r/buildapcsales for an R9 380.

    Go to: https://jet.com/product/GIGABYTE-Ultra-Durable-VGA-GV-R938WF2OC-2GD-Radeon-R9-380-Graphic-Card-980-MHz-C/7ddd8106c5514f6ead9e73fabe0c333f

    Add it to cart and enter promo code: SCARYMOMMY2016

    Bam, R9 380 for $143. You can save more if you waive the free return, though I don't recommend it.
