Hi all, appreciate what you guys do here.

I've got the monitor, mouse and headphones covered. Otherwise I need a rig suitable for video editing (specifically colour grading in DaVinci Resolve) and gaming (in the evenings ;) ).

Any further info needed, hit me up. thanks again. Budget is 1500-1800 pounds.

Hey Ajcardiac,

Thanks for taking the time to assemble that parts list. I'm running your picks by a friend, they're saying the performance difference between the GTX 980 and the GTX 970 is marginal enough that it's not worth the price difference. What do you think?

The GTX 980 is in odd position and I don't often recommend it. Unless it is discounted, there is some credence in your friend's statement.

However the GPU above is a 980Ti and that is probably the best card for price/performance.
