How old is the G20? Because since you already have it, you might just be better off with the new GPU.

1 year old but it was the best one i could buy at the time with i7 intel, 2 TB hard drive and a 760 2 GB graphics card.

And that will probably perform swimmingly for the better part of the next five or so years as long as the PSU can support a 980.

What resolution are you going to be playing at? Because unless you are gaming at 4k the only reason to have 2 GTX 980s is bragging rights.
