Hello, fellow enthusiast. I'm looking to buy parts for my next pc. I have a mouse, keyboard, and screen so there's no need to worry about those items; basically just the tower. No optical drive, but I will need the operating system. Budget is 1000. Please include a liquid cooler, and overclocking would be nice to add. I don't want to air cool. :) Color scheme would be most appreciated. I want to run games in ultra closest to max frames as possible. Good luck!

A $100 liquid cooler and a $100 OS will leave only 800 bucks for the actual PC..

My humble suggestion, you decide whether the water-cooling is worth getting a lesser GPU.. -- After all, its your PC :-))

A Tomshardware EDITOR RECOMMENDED Motherboard..

Bechmarks have suggested a +4 % performance in effective speed favoring the 390..

http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-970-vs-AMD-R9-390/2577vs3481

A Tier-1 R9 390 from the GPU TIer-list.. scroll down to the R9 390 section.

A GOLD-AWARD & VALUE-FOR-MONEY RATED case on OVERCLOCK3D and 9.75 RATED on PCGAMEWARE.CO.UK..

Hope this helps.. :-D

I don't know. I like the 970 due to lower power outage. :( And the windforce version looks so sexy.

Trust me dude, get the 980 Ti.. All you'll ever need in the future would be a bad-*** display for that MONSTROUS 980 Ti..

If this helps u decide, 980 ti vs 970 benchmarks..

Budget is 1000. 980ti is way out of budget.
