For the videocards im thinking of MSI 980ti lightnings. Or is there a better choice out there.
The MSI Lightning cards are massive power hogs if you are going to overclock them.

If you are going with those you really should go with a 1000 watt PSU.

So, ill.go with the evga supernova p2 along with the 2 msi lightning cards.

For cpu upgrade ill first see how this will perform. maybe if it really bottlenecks i will consider upgrading it.

The brand new Corsair RMx is a tiny bit better and also cheaper as well.

On the other hand the EVGA does have a longer warranty which is 10 years on the EVGA vs 7 years on the Corsair.

Up to you which thing you like more but you wont find better options then those 2 in that price range.

AMD wins at 4k, not sure why you'd switch to Nvidia unless a fanboy told you to.

Im just looking for the best setup here. If AMD is better at 4k i could go for a 3 way crossfire and it will be cheaper than the 2 nvidea cards.
