okay, solid point. the 980 i can stick with. Also, the motherboard you posted is also good. I often forget, only certain pieces can go with certain...other pieces.Well no.. The 980 vs 980 ti is almost a $250/$300 difference by itself. The 980 ti is overkill for 90% of people.
The motherboard you posted was for an x99 platform. That would add an easy $400-$600 to your price just for the other components.
The main go-to is the z97 chipset (which I posted)
If you went with what you posted, you would be nearing $1650
okay, that would is something im willing to do. 100$...i can throw that on np. What was it specifically you were talking about?If he wanted to spend another $100 for an 850 evo would be good. I tossed in a 2TB hybrid (8GB ssd cache) that I've been selling in my shop lately, and they are pretty fast.
One thing, is a 2 TB hard drive...large enough? i dont have...a lot on my computer. microsoft word, excel, a few steam games that installed, and a few blizzard games. i have no dvds on the computer, and my itunes i guess could take up some space, but i only have like 500 songs. I take it 2 TB is good?
is a saphire 290x better than a 980?I bought my Sapphire 290x 4gb for 299.99 just as all the AMD 300 series news was starting. Now the same 290x is retailing for $50 more. Might want to wait a few weeks for prices to stabilize, even for the 300 series cards.
