This was my 1st custom build. I was willing to take my time and save in order to get the parts I really wanted. After much reading, asking questions here, and tons of Reddit trolls, this is the build I came up with for myself. The 1st and 2nd benchmark pictures are of the 3DMark Firestrike test results, the 3rd benchmark picture is of the 3DMark Firestrike Ultra(4k) test results, the 4th test picture is of Unigine Heaven benchmark with EVGA Precision X up just to show the GPU core clock & temp under load. (I am amazed at how cool these 980s run) All in all, I am extremely pleased with this build.
