There is free speech and there is being an annoying twat. This user is exercising his right to the latter.
You don't think I'm going to post here sober, do you?
I have embraced my Benny Franko side. I'm sleazy.
join the 2010s with your storage capacity.
If you're willing to wait, new advances in GPU's might drop the price of the current cards when they come out.
Otherwise, I've had great success with HP pre-builts. I got a 980ti and i7 for like a grand, and didn't have to put it together myself.

I would advise against building a gaming computer right before the 14nm GPU node products are released here in a few months.
I appreciate the input of both sides of the "wait a few months" debate. However, my current machine is pretty bunged up and poses a risk of blowing up in my face Real Soon Now(tm).
As for Thork's "bleeding edge" versus "smart money" argument - it's not an unfair one. I know I'm overspending, but I'm comfortable with that. Being a wacky nerd, I'm sure I'll find ways to push that machine to its limits one way or another.
You're not kidding. I'm surprised it's lasted as long as it has.
The only thing I'd change is your storage. Get a PCIe SSD if you can. Add more drives later if you need more storage. The difference between 100MB/s and 750MB/s is well worth the extra money.

You need a very specialised use case for transfers faster than 100 MB/s to be worth any amount of money.
