Also, I went with the GTX 980, for the three DisplayPort 1.2s and HDMI 2.0. This means it will work with a 1440p 144Hz monitor, 4k 60Hz monitor and 4k 60Hz TV, with room for one more DP1.2 peripheral, or I can use the DVI.
Certainly a future-proof rig! Hope you're getting the GTX 980 with 3 fans, it looks like a monster!

Most everything listed has great reviews. It's a bit pricer than I orginally wanted, but with Christmas so close, some of my lower end first picks were sold out. All the parts should've been here December 6th, however the tracking data is really scary, as I've counted 6 stops in 3 days! Maybe today... and intact :|
This will be my 3rd PC build in almost 20 years! I'm not happy with DRM and the new security stuff embedded in the HW and SW. I'm asking a friend to burn me a legit copy of Win7 (also a first in 20 years lol, since Win95b at least), and teach me about it on his laptop, as my current OS is WinXP on a 12 year old Dell laptop. I just don't wanna register with MS or get constant, incremental updates at all :| Updating HW and SW drivers is a careful business, which will hopefully go well, and in order.
I'll be back here soon, and let you all know how well the build goes. This is my Chirstmas present, to myself, as I'm leaving my home of 40 years on the 17th :( Still don't have a place to live, yet...
