    My only comment is, why didn't you went with I7 4790 and X99 MB? it is probably just an extra 100 USD given you spend so much already?

    In addition, can you PSU support 2 GTX980? Minimum requirement for Gtx980 is 500-600w. Usually Ppl go with at least a 1000W PSU for 980 SLI setup.

    Just my 2 cents, my rig is much cheaper then yours lol.

    Single Strix (or any) 980 won't be able to keep stable 60 FPS at 4K. For stable 60 FPS (at that resolution) I reccomend a 3-way SLI.

  3. Buy the latest AMD for 4k gaming..

    He already say that he will buy another 980 in a few weeks.

    I believe 980Ti or Titan X is the only single card that can handle 60FPS at 4k. Plus the new AMD Fury card which i read is on par with GTX 980ti.

    Nope. Look at this benchmark. Runs on about 40 FPS.

    If you're rich you can buy 4 GTX TITAN Z , an i7 5960X Extreme Edition.
    But if you are normal , changes NOTHING , this is a very good PC

    Well still, if you are getting a multi GPU setup, I would reccomend you getting a better PSU. I would get the Corsair HX1200i or AX1500i.
  8. Why I stick to the i5 is because given the fact that I will mostly be gaming I dont think an i7 4790 is gonna give me a notable diff, from what I have seen it varies from 0,5%-4% improvement over the i5 4690k in term of FPS.

    Also I will upgrade the PSU for the Corsair HX 1200i it have some awesome features. Thanks guys!

    If by awesome features you mean Corsair Link, it might be worth taking a look at Corsairs forum for Corsair Link. The software for it has some... issues. Not to say don't get that PSU, just I wouldn't buy it specifically for those features.

    As for the CPU, yeah thats a good call for some games you may actually see a very slight reduction in performance on the i7 versus the i5, though all in all hovering around the 0% difference mark FPS wise.

  10. Thats true you might aswell go ahead and upgrade your cpu or maybe get some close liquid cooling if you want to dip into the overclocking world. But for starters upgrading your cpu should be a sufficient upgrade.
  11. There are practically no fury's at stores. It seems like there were not much cards distributed, as said on LinusTechTips video.

    I would actually go with the 4790k as well, just to give you options in the future.

    I did a very similar build and I overspecced the PSU, I prefer to have a lot of headroom just in case (also for future upgrades). I went with a 1200 watt PSU
