Upgrading & moving to intel Need advice - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I think you've been given some pretty sound advice here. If I bought an nvidia GPU, I'd go with MSI or EVGA. I'd save my money and consider skylake when you do upgrade. I'm also a fan of EVGA PSU because of the price/warranty. I've also never had a bad one. biggrin.gif The 980 TI will last you quite a while.

You're spending way, way too much on that PSU. I recently got a 650W XFX gold PSU that's actually a rebranded Seasonic PSU for $80 new, and that's plenty of power for a single 980 TI.

There's a recommended PSU list here on OCN. Just look through ~650W units the list, and get one that isn't $200 tongue.gif

I'm running SLI 970s (equivilent-ish to a 980Ti), and for now they are a little overkill, but games don't become less demanding over time. I am hoping they last at least 2-4 more years. Get what you can afford, If you cant get the I74790k then get the I5 4690k. It wont make a huge difference on most games, and you'll save a few bucks. The skylakes (6600/6700) z170 mobos are another option.

Yes i will probably sell it to a friend. but not right now, i was going to sell it if i had to change everything.

but iam still between the GTX 980 and Ti at the moment

Here are some links to get you started in your decision.


GeForce GTX 980 Ti vs 980


Edit: not sure why the price of the 980 is listed as $1,700
