    1. You don't need the 5960x. There are a very select few applications that will ever need that sort of power.

    2. That SSD is overpriced for what you're getting. You're better off with a Samsung 850 Pro.

    3. 2, R9 295X2s are cheaper than 3 980s, and better. It's not practical to have 2 of them, 1 of them will already max out most games, but since you have no budget, why the hell not?

    Good build if you don't mind the cost.

    Yeah, except for the fact that the SSD is completely impractical. Unless you're going to be extracting files larger than 150GB, you will never need the OCZ SSD.

    Hell, even the 850 is impractical.

    Well you certainly don't need most of that just to game at 4k. Regardless of how much you spent it will be due for an upgrade in a few years time.
