I want to invest on a rig that has a i7 4790k + GTX 980ti combo. I would like to cheap out on everything else. I request your help (Canadian Prices).

Hey guys, I want to splurge on a really good processor (i7 4790k) and GPU. Given how much the GTX 980ti costs, I would like to cheap out on everything else possible. I would appreciate any suggestions and help.

I would prefer it if I was given the prices in Canadian Dollars.

I do not require, peripherals, monitors, keyboard.

This rig will mostly be focused on gaming and streaming.

Edit:

I have a $500 (CND) Dollar budget for everything else. If you can build it with that or less, I would appreciate it. You may go a little beyond that price range, however I am looking to cheap out since I am planning to make an investment on the GPU.

$500 Canadian for the budget, you may or may not go beyond that budget. My goal is to save as much as I can. I edited the description.

Your expectations are absolutely way too high. You are going to have so many bottle necks.

Totally agree. And I knew he meant $500 for everything else, he really could have a balanced system instead of one that is going to cause more of a headache because a H97 can't handle a 4790K and a 980ti

Enjoy the bottlenecks. There is a reason you don't see people putting Titans into a cheapo build
