Hey everyone, I'm about to order ALL of these parts, but I need to see if there is anything else I need to fix.
You should try to get the sticks of ram in a two pack that way they have been tested to work together. Idk if that particular set comes in a two pack but most do.
Also I'm sure you've heard this before and it is entirely up to you but the 980 is alot more expensive than the 970 for a slight performance boost just saying.
It might be cheaper to get 2x8gb or ram, you might be better going for 2 gtx 970s instead of a 980 and you might be better going for one that isn't from evga, I've heard a lot of complaints about their cards. May also want to go for an 80+ gold power supply, a faster ssd (samsung 840 evo 120gb for example) and case that has front panel usb ports. Aside from that it looks good to me.
I liked your first build better with the exception of the PSU. The PSU in the 2nd build is better than the CX.
The Z97-A will give you a much better experience the the PC Mate.
Basically put the Asus board and the D14 in the 2nd build and you should be good.
That CPU cooler is extremely loud
ROTFLMAO..... Really???? or JK?
