Also 1440p or 4k monitor suggestions.
How do sli 970 compare to 980?
from what ive read 980 is only 15% increase over 970 for 60% more money
Is bumping against the rules on PCPartPicker?
Bare in mind that if you SLI those 970s you have maxed out your PCI-e lanes, so consider this build almost definitive.
Hmmm... You can save money by:
Downgrading to i5, downgrading to 8GB, and downgrading that PSU. The difference between Gold and Plat PSUs is just ridiculous.
awesome thank you
i did the i5 and psu but the 16gb of ram is good and cheap also i like to run music programs and download stuff so i dont think the 16gb will hurt
Downloading and listening to music doesn't need 16GB (unless you're running a bunch of music programs, which is unlikely)unless your playing games or doing stuff. And why do you need a 4k monitor. You didn't say that you were going to game on the PC.
i want the best of the best so i dont need to upgrade for a while. i invested 1400 in this laptp im on 2 years ago and i regret it so that why im asking yall in this forum for help.
Well, who uses a 4k monitor to listen to music and download stuff?
lol no i was commenting on the 16gb of ram vs 8gb because i do music and movie dls in the backround while gaming
Are you planning to overclock? If not, drop that liquid CPU cooler, use the stock or aftermarket cooler (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/noctua-cpu-cooler-nhu9bse2). For the 4k monitor you asked for, you don't need one unless you really want one. Just stick with a 1440p 60ghz monitor (http://pcpartpicker.com/part/acer-monitor-umhx2aa001). Also, the SSD isn't that needed unless the Windows boot time is driving you crazy.
thank you for the info and as for the ssd would it make my games run better? this is going to be a gaming machine only and i want it to last for years.
Now I take that back after reading an article about why SSD's are better.
i took you advice on the monitor and psu aswell as dropped to the 4690k i5 saved me 200$ almost paid for the monitor.
