Thanks! I'll definitely keep the 980 around till the market stabilizes - Since this is also my primary build though I'd like a more powerful card for the 1440p 144hz monitor at home :)

Yeah we actually just play L4D2 and BL2 when I'm traveling with it so I'm pretty much at 144hz. But still gotta get the high frame rates at home on AAA titles at 1440p since this is also my primary build :)

Haha I would offer to sell mine but I wouldn't be able to shell out the extra to get a 1080 or 1080 ti. I haven't even been able to find any in stock anywhere, although I've seen some selling for $1000+ on ebay.

Thanks. I'm hoping it does stabilize at some point but yeah I shouldn't be complaining too much about the 980. It's still a pretty good card. I can get 60-70fps on high settings at 1440p in bf1. But I'm sure Farcry 5 and upcoming AAA titles will be a challenge but let's see..

Thanks! Checked out your build. I'd definitely recommend a ghost s1 so you can put an AIO or some more case fans for the OCd 8700k. I've seen some people do mods on the CPU cooler in a Dan Case to get more airflow but I'll test the system out some more this weekend and see if it's necessary :)
