Here is another version if you want, either way, I would get the GPU in this one as it is about the same cost, but better overall performance:

For flat out gaming, this crushes it. The problem is that you sacrifice nice bells and whistles for raw fps. You only get a semi-modular power supply with only bronze efficiency, there is no SSD, only a 1tb hard drive, and no operating system which forces you to use something like r/softwareswap or get a student licence (if you are a student) or licence from work. On the bright side it has a cool black and white theme and will crush any game you throw at it. You just have to figure out what you want more: More fps, or Ease of use upgrades.

Why the nvidea graphics card ? And what about OS? Peripherals?

MAybe because he wants lower power usage?

I was directing that at the OP so he could actually say why.

This is usually the reason for wanting an Nvidia card over an AMD card.

  • 51 months ago

The reason for the Nvidia GPU is because the GTX 980 Ti is fairly better over the R9 390 which is what I would have proposed. The reason I picked Windows 10 is because it supports many types of hardware, supports Dx12, and it the latest OS. There is no peripherals because none were stated as needed.

I didn't comment on your build.

And 390 xfire is better than 980 Ti

At this budget you should be looking at Nano crossifre

I would definitely not recommend CF Nanos. Not a good call at all. Yes in some games they work well, but they use ALOT of power, don;t work super well in many games, and have driver issues. I'd personally have a single 980TI.

You again -.-

Crossfire is fine. Whats wrong with it?

The cards don't scale well in most all games and use alot of power. Nano CF is not usually an advisable setup.
