    Welp, it's settled.

    Said fuck it. Went with The 980 Matrix. The cooler rubs me right in each direction.




    But, since I got that. I can't decide if it would be more worth it to start a new x99 build, or just leave it like this and upgrade my 4670k. If I upgraded, I could get a full ROG layout, but would it be worth it? That's the question.

    Should have waited and bought the 980Ti, comes out in a couple of days.

    I would say X99 isn't worth it and if you can hold out for a year or two for the Skylake (1151) architecture to drop and save until then, your system will be beast!

    That's what I'm doing anyway but to each there own.

    I just couldn't do that 2GB vram anymore. Plus that was on sale for 484? Any where else it is at the very least 600 it would appear. Plus refunding is a builders dream. Just can't decide what i want the cables to be, what color. Either straight red or black and red, orrrr maybe a Red black, grey.


    ti is going to cost well over a grand I think. I can't force myself to do that high. PLus I mean, ROG is just so fucking sexy. The cooler is just insane.

    Fair enough, I would go just Black & Red.

    980Ti cost US$799 according to reports anyway.

    Well. Could still change my mind, actually could just sell that 980 and get a refund and blow it on that. Feel like my CPU will be a bottleneck.
