Squeeze a bit of skylake, nice PSU.. Could be really nice with an extra $100 or so thrown at it for an SSD, better mobo and case.

Still debating if I should go with the 980 or go with the 960 to buy better components elsewhere. Some of the games I'm interested in are older( total war series, Civ 5) while some are newer ( world of warships, naval action)

Thanks guys

personally i have an r9 380 i got for under 200 usd, and it runs most games on mid-high at 60fps or higher on high graphics settings. you could go with an gtx 970 or if you would be willing to go amd with an r9 390x for around 400 dollars and you should be good on high-ultra for most things http://pcpartpicker.com/part/msi-video-card-r9390xgaming8g and use that few hundred you'll save for an ssd for a boot drive and a better mobo and such.
