    Default So what upgrade next.........................

    So got a bit of spare cash just laying about, i can't make my mind up what upgrade to my PC to make.........

    Currently running:
    I7 4790k (oc 4.8)
    Maximus Hero mobo
    24GB Corsair vengeance RAM
    EVGA Nvidia GTX 970 FTW GPU (oc to i can't remember what...)
    H100i CPU water cooling
    2 x SSD
    1 x 1TB hybrid drive
    800W gold (something or other) PSU

    Do i:

    Custom water cool the whole unit (not got a problem with temp, but would make it look sweeeeet)

    Any thoughts/ideas welcome

    I actually just de-cooled my setup very identical to yours (4770k/970) and selling the liquid cooling and 970 on ebay for pascal 1080. I can see it sticking around for a loong time.

    Ill also pick up a 1440p monitor, maybe one with 144hz as well. "irresponsible power"

    If you're going to get a monitor that's 144hz, make sure that it is GSync. I promise you won't regret it

    Don't worry about SLI'ing the GTX 970. It's a waste at this point.

    GTX 1080 ($599) coming May 27th, GTX 1070 ($379) coming June 10th.

    Performance of ONE GTX 1080 is 2x that of a Titan X.
