Maybe when you get the 880, I can purchase your old parts. =)
Well the 760 will be the only old part, and I got some plans for an HTPC with it

But if you end up with the PS4, you will basically just subtract the cost of a high end GPU from your build. If you end up changing your mind down the road then all it would take is the GPU.

For any PC gamers that still read this thread, the 970 and 980 were announced today. The 970 will feature a total of 1,664 Cuda Cores and 4GB of VRAM at a price of $329. The 980 will feature 2048 Cuda Cores along with 4GB of VRAM as well. The 980 will come in at a price of 549.

Looks like as soon as I can, I will be putting a step up request for my 760 with EVGA and I will more than likely get a reference card as I will more than likely SLI it in the future. Decided to do the Step up with my 760 as I don't see myself building an HTPC as I had planned till much later and by that time, it will be basically useless.

Very nice, 350D is one my favorite Micro-ATX cases. And if your only gaming, that is a very well balanced build.

I am currently in the process of building a NAS too, I just ordered my drives and have the RAM, case, PSU, cooler and UPS at home. Just need the board, proc and SSD and it will be up and running. The last three parts will have to wait till next month

I just purchased a new 4k TV and unfortunately my 780Ti doesn't support 60Hz 4k over HDMI. Would anyone be interested in it? It's a super clocked EVGA model, very little use.

ok, I've been playing PC games more lately and I think it's time I upgraded my video card.

Specs:

Dell Studio XPS 8100
Intel i7 870 @ 2.93GHz
6GB RAM
Thermaltake 600W psu
AMD Radeon HD 7770

I'm not sure what the best card I can get with the setup I have. This computer is 99% for gaming. I've been playing ARK and would like to get into DayZ and H1Z1 type of games. Not a fan of FPS games.

May even dabble is live streaming on twitch. lol

edit: I would like to keep it under $500

One other thing, I'll have to look up the dimensions of my current video card, but whatever it is, is the max that will fit in the box.

At that price range, I would go with a 970. For the price, it's a damn good card.
