Whoever said 750$ for a HD 7970 is too much, keep in mind it's AUS, they have a different currency and they have a much smaller customer market to have lower prices... It's same with Canadian price. Always 20% more than US. (approx.)

My PSU is a bit overkill, but I got a decent deal on it, and I will definitely use it on my next build.

How has this thread turned into a " MINES BETTER THEN YOURS ". Again what a joke. I'm done on this thread now. I feel bad for the OP, he's new to the build and a new member and gets treated like this. Wow. All I see are bunch of jealous hypocrites. I'm out.

This build I made is my first. I'm not exactly a vet. I made a few mistakes on my build, the PSU was more than I needed, and I kind of wished I bought some GPUs with better cooling. Anyway, next time I wont make that mistake. I also had pretty much a worst possible scenario with RMAs. 1 bad CPU, one DOA motherboard, 1 DOA case that was bent by a fork lift, 1 bad stick of ram. Half the build was DOA from Newegg. Took a whole month to get everything worked out.

You can never have too much power wink.gif. As for your cooling, just get yourself a wc loop going! thumb.gif

How does he have better money management than most adults when he does all that saving, to go blow it on an overpriced rig.

I know someone that bought a 980X when they first came out and now he feels terrible about it, as he was young and naive when he did it.

He sees barely no difference in performance on another mates gaming rig which is a 2500K that he paid like 1300 for. the 980X itself cost that much.

At the time he had been on this mission to get the most pricey hardware, and once the novelty wore off he realised he should've kept his i7 950, there was nothing wrong with it..

a lot of negative comments will arise when money is essentially being wasted in the eyes of many.

It's his money, why do you care? If you haven't noticed, this is overclock.net, not budgetrig.net. Some have more disposable income than others. Even then why do care?

What makes you think he saved anything? You have no idea what money he has, or makes unless he stated it and I missed it in the thread?
