My second (or second-and-a-half) build. Upgrading from a PC I built that I've had for way too many years who became known as Old Faithful and then Frankenfaithful when I kept swapping things out.
This one's definitely meant to be a dream rig, but not TOO over-the-top pricey, and quite future-proofed. Or at least near-future-proofed. I've got a lot of spare cash at the moment, but am looking at what'll be cheapest longterm, for when I don't.
As such, I debated a lot between say, the 5930K and a 58-, or the 980 GTX and the 970, as the improvements are so small compared to how much the price jumps. My eventual conclusion was that the lifespan of the higher-end ones will be longer. Especially with like... 4-way SLI if needed down the line.
The plan is to add another SSD and another GPU soonish, and possibly more down the line, hence the over-the-top PSU. EDIT: Oh, also more memory.
Looking mostly for any glaring flaws, as well as possible opinions on better choices, or whatever ya like, really.
P.S. Frakking hell, I love that I found this site. Takes SO much of the headache out of things. Lets ya get to the fun! Made me offer to build PCs for like everyone I know.
