    Upgrading some stuff

    Hello, I had bought a pre-built computer about 2 years ago and a year ago I bought some new parts. The old one had the GTX 760 and I upgraded to the 970, the CPU was i5-4440 and now I've upgraded it to i7-4790k. The most thing that bothers me is the motherboard, I mean, it feels like it's not as functional enough as it should be, it's the MSI B85M-E45, it feels like it's not future proof, what motherboard would you recommend if I ever wanted to SLI 970's(I've been thinking of doing that) and what PSU is fairly good for a SLI config. I've got the EVGA NEX650G And is it worth upgrading to a DDR4 motherboard? If so, any good ram sticks? Would appreciate if you could drop Amazon links since I'm a refunder myself haha, can get the things for free.

    My current setup looks like this:

    Motherboard: MSI B85M-E45
    CPU: i7-4790k
    RAM: 2x4GB RAM STICKS(too lazy to open it up to see what brand it is, but I assume it's not bad)
    GPU: GTX 970 4GB
    Cooling: Corsair H100i
    Case: Corsair 750D(dunno the reason I actually bought it, it's damn huge, it was like 180quid, bought it from Amazon and SE'd it anyways so)

    Why would you redirect to a forum from a forum... He posted here because he wants help from here...

    @Desl1me
    Your build is solid,
    http://www.amazon.com/MSI-DDR3-2600-.../dp/B00K23BZTA
    Personally I like that Mobo and its great for OC'ing. You could even run 3 GPU's in SLI with it.
    Also if possible could you add me on skype: mpgh.windoge10
    I really need to ask you something RE amazon.

    EDIT: any 2 more matching sticks of ram would also be a good upgrade for years to come

    Thanks and good luck with the upgrade!

    So I assume DDR4 is not worth upgrading to? Thanks!

    DDR4 doesn't make a big difference at all, ddr3 is fine.
    Could you please add me on Skype. Thanks
