    I say it's worth every penny I am also building the same exact motherboard and and cpu I thinks it's perfect for anything you WANa throw at your pc as far as gpu I'd rather get the 780ti it has 800 more cuda cores than the 980 meaning More frames in a game, but I think that build is perfect I will be purchasing my parts next weekend

    Time to go super PC I guess. Would I run BF3 @ 1080p at over 100fps?

    I would say yea but the 780ti has 800 more cores than the 980 so gives more frames you might want check that out to decide the gpu.

    Actually the 980 out run the 780 Ti Performance wise. IT has more CUDA Cores but its more clock speed, more vram, more pixel rate, more render output processors for less power.

    I guess 980 is more 4K ready.

    I"ll get my new PC, and I'll give you some feedback on how the new Maxwell GPU works maybe that would help you decide.
