What gigabyte mobo what ram?

A gigabyte 1150 socket mobo like the GA-Gaming 5 Z97 will work with any Intel 4000 series cpu.

Any DDR3 ram works on DDR3 motherboards

Any GPU works on any PCIe 8x or higher slot (AMD cards can work on 4x+ slots)
all modern mobo's come with atleast one 2.0/3.0 16x slot. But make sure the PSU can keep up with a beefy card the 980ti takes a lot of power.

Brands are irrelevant but what matters is socket on the mobo + the type of ram. Also don't buy a 4790k that is old technology get the Skylake series. Skylake is only lightly faster but the chipsets are far superior + support DDR4 ram. NVMe support is a huge plus but right now NVMe drives are expensive but give it a while.

I would also recommend a Fury over the 980ti if you want a future proofed rig.

Is it really that old? I already have most of the parts, and it'll be a hassle returning them all. This is what my build has

its only 1 architecture old but its kinda weird to buy them.

The Supernova NEX is a terrible PSU
http://www.overclock.net/t/1476935/why-you-should-not-buy-an-evga-supernova-nex650g-750g-aka-g1

Case, ram, storage are fine.

What parts do you already have?

If its just the motherboard + ram + storage I say keep the storage + ram and make a skylake rig.

If you already have the CPU + gpu I say keep everything

I have the mobo already, I'm not sure if I can return it, I bought it about over a month ago. What power supply do you recommend instead of the supernova? Corsair?

A non NEX supernova will be fine.

Corsair PSU's other than the AX/HX series are **** Corsair doesn't make PSU's they buy from the oem and put their logo on it the AX/HX series are top tier but exspensive.

Any XFX or Seasonic psu will work (XFX uses only seasonic OEM, which is above average) and Antec has a few great ones & some bad (they use various OEM's) I am leaving in a minute but I can post a few when I get back.

G1/Nex are **** the G2 are good that is the same as the NEX above.

Gold rating is irrelevant many bronze are better than many golds.


A nice platinum rated one for $84 probably the best around $80 atm and if u fill out the rebate you can get 20 bucks back
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/antec-power-supply-ea750platinum

I believe this uses Delta OEM


Really nice Rosewill Capstone Gold rated 750w (its really high for a gold though) for $80
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/rosewill-power-supply-capstoneg750

Rosewill Capstone uses Superflower oem

Really good rating on Jonnyguru.
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story5&reid=266


Good cheaper one 650w XFX for 65 bucks
http://pcpartpicker.com/part/xfx-power-supply-p1650snlb9

Seasonic OEM

Yes.

But the Fury is a much better card than the 980 ti even nvidia biased sites which use settings biased towards Nvidia like TPU

Tied at 1440p

AMD cards render in higher quality than Nvidia by default as well

Yea but the improvements only really show up at 4k where in 1080p the 980ti beats the fury x and if I do upgrade to 1440p it'll be the same, but if anything I can just add a block or whatever to the card and water cool it.

Except those 1440p benchmarks are not on high AA where the bandwidth of the Fury will shine + the future proofing of the Fury X (Which also comes watercooled & is nice cool & silent).


DX12 supports way better on AMD cards than Nvidia.
Driver support last way longer on AMD than Nvidia

AMD is doing another driver overhaul this month/early december and even recoded CCC from scratch

AMD always had better hardware and the past few years their software been catching up.

Corsair's AX/HX/AXi/HXi, and RMi PSUs are all pretty decent, but hella expensive. EVGA's G1 units are terrible, the GS and G2 units are fantastic. Rosewill's Capstone line-up is also fantastic. 550W would be more than enough for a 4790k and 980Ti rig, OCed. 850W would do for SLI support, so I'd get something like an EVGA 550GS or EVGA 850G2.
