hate to break it to you, but if you're putting the money down on a 980ti, you want to put the money down on a nice monitor. Cause it will be wasted on a cheap 1080p monitor.

I would never in my life put that PSU in this rig. Like ever. In fact it is insufficient for whatever you want to do with this build. Try something like this...

it's actually GA-Z97M-DS3H

http://ca.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/download-center.aspx?ck=2

go there. Download the right driver for the part number I provided. restart computer after your done. Test the performance. If it's still not ok fixed we can try other solutions. Also could you give me an indication of what kind of lag spikes? Like FPS? Maybe run FRAPS (software) and see when this happens?

honestly the best one is the one that GAROLDonPC linked you. For the price point it is probably the most efficient and quiet. Use that (his list is good as well)

Another common misconception about water cooling is that it is quiet. Unfortunately it is only as quiet as the fans you have installed on your radiator. There are many great quiet air coolers out there, I will take a look and get back to you.

yes. Please install AMD Catalyst software. It will do all updates for you.

I know man -.-...

Since you don't understand what I'm saying I will make it more clear:

a SINGLE 120 MM FAN / A Single 120 MM Radiator is probably not going to get you much better temps than a good air cooler. And then you run the risk of leaks. IMO go with a real inline water cooler or go air.

which do nothing for cooling the cpu... I'm talking about that 120mm rad / fan water cooling setup. btw your GPU is missing in the newer updated version :P.

a single 120mm fan / rad isn't really anything worth buying, you can probably get the same results on air. Seems like a decent price though..

the metal bracket they speak of is the part that holds the VGA ports / HDMI / Display Ports / DVI ports together (the back of the card). Installing the graphics card is probably the easy part of any build. you can't really screw it up.

Metal bracket has nothing to do with the motherboard but yes most cards do come with this "metal bracket"

The only way to overclock the CPU is for it to be a "K" series chip with a "Z" series motherboard. We aren't overclocking the motherboard, just the CPU.

Try this but change your SSD as Horusrogue said. For what you are doing, an I7 upgrade will not give you enough performance per dollar spent, I used the savings to buy you the best graphics card on the market.

Well generally the use of a "z" series board allows you to overclock (this is the main feature). A "K" series chip is unlocked meaning it can be overlocked. Non K series chips cannot be overclocked. Another main feature being SLI for the "z" series. Although I wouldn't really recommend the SLI route for most people.
