A very FINE piece of work there kid....

BUT...on the second thought...u should have gone for the GTX 690 instead of GTX 760 (GTX 690 out-breaks the 760)...

But still....nicely done...

I guess I thought the higher the number the better lol. But does it seem Kind of future proof? And if anyone was wondering the final price I believe it was just short of 1400 which seemed reasonable to me but at the same time maybe I was jipped lol.

Best solution

if you can drop down to an i5 4670k use the savings for a higher end gpu. if you can wait a few weeks to order the newer nvidia maxwell gpu are dropping.
