Yeah, there isn't a very wide selection in Egypt and everything is overpriced. Thanks for your reply. Though, are you certain that this graphics card would be sufficient for my needs?

My previous system had R9 280, so yes. Chose it because it's much cheaper than R9 380...

Well, there is a problem. R9 280 is out of stock, and I couldn't find anything close to it in performance and price. Suggestions?

I see. Btw, you said "That shop has a very strange selection", so I assume there were items you were looking for but didn't find. I can search in other websites in local shops so, if you had found what you were looking for what build would you have choosen?

PSU and SSD selection is quite rare, SSD and CPU prices seem huge. Also cheapest (and only) CPU air cooler is http://www.elbadrgroupeg.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=62&product_id=642

I would change that liquid CPU cooler to air cooler, if easy.

Had to change stuff to be within budget. Is this fine? Is the CPU underpowered?

Edit: Also, according to the website's Facebook page, the RX 480 is coming out soon and will cost 2xxx EGP (probably gonna be 2999), so might buy that instead since it'll be a while before I buy everything anyway.

That LGA1151 bundle is not offering good price/performance ratio compared to LGA2011-3 bundle IMO.

For 2999, RX 480 is much better choice than 380X.

Performance-wise, how will it benefit me? I decided I won't be overclocking.

Hexa cores have much better ability to multitasking and will last much longer than quad cores.
