Wanted a future-proof/resistant gaming rig capable of running current releases (e.g. Fallout 4) in High/Ultra mode in 4K. Back and forth between i5 and i7 choices, and back and forth between SLI 970's and single 980ti. Up'd the processor for multi-tasking work app's. GTX-980ti FTW is a beast. Corsair case probably overkill, but room to grow. ASUS monitor ranked #7 in independent ranking of best 4K monitors, and I'm extremely happy with it. All-in-all, great part choices, I think. No install issues, no RMA's, no dead pixels, etc. Highly recommended otherwise as a first-build. And probably for more experienced builders. Comments appreciated.
