    okay. let me start off by saying that I am in the midst of building my own computer as well (over months of research, and have yet to buy all the parts, left 2) and aiming to have it last for 6 years (my previous build lasted for 7). I would say (based on prices in the UK), go with the 1070. If you're looking at VR, hands-down GTX 1070. SLI configurations aren't really supported that well even after so long. even without considering VR, I would still say 1070. I mean, GTX 1070 beats the Titan X according to nvidia CEO, or around on par with it. The price difference between the 1070 and 970 isn't much either.

    Secondly, don't splurge on your other parts. If you really want your build to last long, don't overclock if you aren't planning on doing your due research. get a locked i5-6600 processor is more than enough. 8gb ram (with 2 spare slots to upgrade to 16), and good air cpu cooler such as the coolermaster 212 hyper evo. single ssd 256/500gb with hdd. this general build won't cost a bomb, great in price-performance, and durable. One big variable i didn't mention here is your motherboard, now thats up to you.

    Note again, cost is based on UK prices.
    I splurged as a reward to myself, and if you guys want i can post my pcpartpicker build here. Chill out!

    Also, the GTX 970 will not future-proof your system. and its only good at 1080p.

    Your exactly right the 900 series is great.

    Are you saying 1080p is bad because its not. It just depends on what your doing.

    1. Condense your replies into 1 post.

    2. umm, I'm only saying it's only good at 1080p. i didn't say 1080p is bad. it's just not sufficient at 1440p. Its like, GTX 980 is only good at 1440p. that doesn't make 1440p bad. its just not sufficient at 4k. please don't twist someone else's words.
