            Gaming on intel built in graphics, not going to lie, I haven't see that too often.

             

            Personally I would go for an A10-7850k and that's NOT just because we're on an AMD forum lol

                Gaming in built-in graphics is not a choice. it's a limitation :3

                Hopefully i'll grab a 370 and a Qanba Q1 to play games before fall

                    Might want save a little more for a 390. unless your running duel 370 you will probably quickly regret not spending a little more on a 390. i made that mistake with the last gen Asus R9 270X. Even though I ended up getting a 2nd Asus R9 270X for the crossfire, I kicked myself the whole time for not spending the few extra bucks on the 290. I ended up getting duel 290's so the money I spent on the 270's was ultimately wasted. Well I ended up building a "redneck" pc out of my 270Xs and some wood molding laying around for fun, but still. haha

                        for that i need to upgrade my PSU+display+casing.

                        but yeah you're right. bigger is always better

                          I disagree... for a budget GPU the 370 (270) is better than you think as long as your CPU is good. Im running a 270 with an i5 and can play games like BF4 and witcher 3 and GTA V with no issues. Sure they may not be maxed out but the look pretty good.

                              I never said they weren't good, I'm just saying for the price vs performance it's worth saving the extra bucks to get the 390. Then with the 390 you "future proof" for a while and can throw in a 2nd when the prices do the big drop here in about a year or so and really be set for a while. Then ultimately upgrade everything else around it piece by piece.

                        why not go with a R9 280X with your I3 4160 ? It would be a good match unless budget doesn't allow it .In single player games it will be fine but in some multiplayer games, like BF4, it will bottleneck. It depends on the game if it will bottleneck. You could always go with it now and upgrade your CPU later if you want some extra performance.Just something to think about But clean out that cpu cooler first an foremost
