I built a gaming computer in 2004, and got a laptop in 2010. The laptop is finally starting to show its age when it comes to higher resolution gaming, so I think it's time to build a high-end tower again. I want a system that will squash any modern game at 1080p, and still hopefully be a threat when the Oculus Rift goes gold. A lot has changed since I've done this, so I'd like to know if anyone has any comments. Specifically:
-Is the motherboard I chose adequate for some moderate overclocking at some point in the future? -Is the 1000W PSU over/underkill if I plan on overclocking and eventually adding another 970 for SLI? -RAM modules and frequency... I have no clue what, if any, difference is present. -Am I overpaying for things like the HDD , RAM, PSU, etc, when a cheaper alternative would be just as good?
