Please, i honestly would just buy 2 980 ti if were in your position lol, the perf gain all cpu-limited/RAM limited would easily overcome another setup where, with the same money, you went for a single GPU a squeaky new skylake or kinda new devil canyin setup with some other 'gaming-meh' stuff
well I am serious. I'm not a hardcore gamer as I used to be, in fact I don't even have a desk nowdays, my pc sits under my TV, connected to it, and I play everything on it with an xbox 360 gamepad. I just happen to like high detailed graphics, and I'd like to keep running them on high settings with a good frame rate in the future.
maybe I could say screw it, I'll buy 2 gtx 980ti (wich I couldn't, because the cheapest I found was $630 with shipping) in fact from a different perspective it sounds like a good idea. but who knows, maybe tomorrow my old i7 or my ram or who knows what will become a bottleneck (in fact as of now, cooling and the lack of a ssd are big issues) so idk, it's a matter of balance, 2 980ti would be overkill for me, and I have these other computer issues to resolve.
and it's not like my mother gave me $1000 to spend in gaming, it's my money, that's my budget, and upgrading my pc is a priority, but the less I spend, the more I'll have left to do buy other stuff
