$1500-$1600 gaming rig

  • Budget: $1500-$1600 (if necessary, you can go to $1750 if the total price goes down to my budget potentially because of deals that I will find this week or during Black Friday)
  • Location: USA
  • Purpose: gaming (GTA V)
  • Theme: black/white
  • Peripherals: none

Preferences:

  • CPU: 4790k - currently $300 at Newegg
  • CPU cooler: Kraken X61 or H110i GTX
  • Motherboard: able to SLI in the future; also see my SSD needs for this. I'm thinking about the SLI Krait for $85, but does it have a good M.2 slot (950 Pro) OR enough for 2-way SLI + the best PCI-E slot (for Intel 750)
  • Memory: 16GB of Corsair or Kingston HyperX
  • Storage: Seagate Barracuda 1TB for a custom price of $35
  • Storage: either the Samsung 950 Pro 512GB or Intel 750 400GB (please choose one and tell me why it's better)
  • Video card: 980 with reference cooler (love the look) or a 980 Ti (no EVGA ACX/FTW models because I really despise the design)
  • Case: NZXT H440 (White/Black)
  • Operating system: Windows 10 - set as FREE
  • PSU: either a really good gold certified or platinum

Thank you so much!
