I get it, certainly. The reasons I say to buy one are as follows:1) a single GTX980ti is playing many games at near max settings on a 4k monitor and totally maxing games at 2560x1440p. A 3440x1440p is a little under halfway between 2560x1440p and 4k. So a single 980ti well overclocked is going to be perfect in like 95% of situations. And at these resolutions, the need for AA (which is the great GPU and memory crusher) lowers significantly, so you can drop a few settings...
Well there's lots of different inputs and approaches to this kind of budget. All have their merits, and personal preference counts for a lot with this much to spend. That said, if I were in the OP's position, this build is precisely what I would go for, and then I would add a second GTX980ti in about 12 months. One of them overclocked should handle 3440x1440p very well for now, and a 2nd will make it smooth sailing until you need to upgrade the GPU's completely. The 5820k...
Outputting to 1080p and actually rendering to 1080p are vastly different things. The PS4 will render 1080p more often than the XB1, but both are drawing at lower resolutions in some games. Further, the PS4 is frequently capped at 30fps when drawing at 1080p.Rendering at 1080p AND maintaining 60fps with maxed graphics remains out of the league of the current consoles (for major cross-platform releases like The Witcher 3 etc). A solid gaming PC of $1000 will be significantly...
This is bull****. I just bought a GTX970 in Malaysia ... and nVidia doesn't "do" game codes here. Tried chatting with their customer service and emailing. A resounding "NO" is all I got from them. Purchase a reasonably high end card for a few hundred dollars plus and don't even get the only game I truly wanted to play (The Witcher 3) which comes with that same card in a wealth of countries around the world. It's not like Malaysia is a backwater. Intel, AMD, and Western...
In and thanks very much. I'll be getting the game regardless, but this would be nice. Knee-deep in The Witcher 2 right now in preparation for number 3.
Hey Sota ... assuming a resolution of 1080p in your monitor and that you live in the USA, then here's about as good as you can possibly do pushing to the top end of that budget. Dropping any lower sacrifices a fair bit in hardware. It would be awesome if you had $650 frankly, to double the HDD space to 2tb (better value price per GB) and a slightly better motherboard. Anyway, enjoy. PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/qGFKgs Price breakdown by merchant:...
My pleasure. Feel free to contact me again if you need help further, or post here. There is tons of great knowledge and many a helpful person on the forum, when you escape some of the riff raff lol.Good luck mate
Overclocking is not inherently dangerous ... overclocking without knowing what you are doing, and doing the process carefully, informed, and systematically can be. Either way, there's not a lot of need with a reasonable Core i5 or i7 CPU when using a single GPU. It just doesn't do that much in most situations.The i5 4590 is more than fast enough as it is. As for switching the CPU's, there is absolutely zero point buying the i5 4690k unless you are overclocking. None...
I chose the case in terms of airflow, functionality, value, and quality. They make really good cases. Here's one more build, for the budget minded. You wont really lose much if any performance compared with the first build, but it's not as "premium" in my eyes.

2nd option, with a GTX980 but a CPU which won't overclock. Might not matter too much honestly - the rest of the options are essentially the same, mostly because for the few bucks you can save here and there, what you lose isn't worth the price difference.
