Additional Comments: I have an older Sapphire X850XT from a previous system but am unsure if it better to just get a new one?
I was considering buying a barebones kit from Tigerdirect.com but have heard it is better to buy individual components. Would prefer any suggestions you might have for builds over barebone kits.

If you are going to buy barebones, get it at newegg. You get newer parts from their shellshocker barebones kits, not leftovers. They had both an amd and Intel barebones last week for under $300 each. Both included 500gb hardrives.
