Okay so right now i'm using FX 6300 and have been thinking of saving up some more to go Intel Kabylake...

But a friend of mine is selling a barebones using his older parts... should i go new or go for my friends stuff?

Get your friend's rig, add an RX480/GTX1060 if you're on a budget, or a 1070/1080 if you're willing to go higher, and you'd be set for a while.

Yes, definitely get your friend's rig. It looks like quite a good deal. With a 1060 6gb, will come out to $650 for a rig that is worth a couple hundred bucks more.

You don't need an AIO cooler for that though. Dunno why he put it in with a non k CPU. You may want to swap it out for a Hyper TX3 and sell the cooler.
