Some of you may have seen my previous issues i have been having with my PC, to eliminate them i have decided to upgrade a lot of parts mainly due to getting a new case and everything will be moved over anyway. But I am not so sure on compatibility and reliability so i would appreciate any help given.
I want to get a new processor and was originally going to go for the AMD FX 8350, But i am looking at doing crossfire in the future so would this keep up with it? if not is it worth going for the 9590?
My current GPU is a spahire r9 280x (dual) I would like to do crossfire as hopefully this will save me money long term would my current card be able to do crossfire with a saphire r9 290x? and is there any issues with crossfire? I have heard bad things about it.
For the motherboard I am looking at the Asus Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 AM3 + 8 channel audio ATX motherboard, it supports crossfire and looks like it supports the CPU i am looking at and it has good reviews so should this be good?
Also stock cooler is not included in the 9590 and the 8350 is not meant to be very good, so i was looking at the Coolermaster Hyper 212 evo, would this be good enough? I do not really want to get anything with liquid.
I also like my PC to be quiet so i am going to get the NZXT h440, which does not many air vents, could this cause problems?
and lastly I am thinking about getting windows 8, could this cause any games not to work?
Thanks for any advice given and hopefully if this all works out i can finally get into PC gaming
