First computer build, need help picking gpu

Hey guys I am building a computer to run intense games on maxed out settings at 1080p while also being able to stream and record videos for YouTube at 60+ fps. I will be playing games like overwatch, arma3, the next battlefield,squad etc. I am having trouble picking between some gpus and need some help from you guys to finalize this and order the parts so I can get to building. Can you guys also let me
know if these specs will fulfill what I intend to do and if not what I can add to make it so

Here is my build so far: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/kTDMqs
Idk whether to go with
-regular nvidia GeForce gtx980ti straight off their website
-EVGA gtx980ti sc acx2.0
-Asus strix gtx980ti sc

Also since these cards are under nvidia will I still get all the nvidia recording features with all of them because I heard the built in recording program with nvidia gpus (shadow play) is really good and doesn't drop your fps while recording which would be really important for me to get max performance and be able to record my games nicely.

Thank you guys for taking the time to read this and any help would be appreciated :)

  1. Best answer
    I would go with either the EVGA or ASUS card because of the better aftermarket coolers. It depends on what look you want between the two cards. Also, with both of the cards you will be able to use NVidias shadowplay and other features.
    Hope this helps! :)
  2. 1) Case isn't available anymore.
    2) I would get the Gigabyte G1 GTX 980 Ti because of the color scheme. xD Well, it performs as fine as other cards listed.

    These 3 look pretty good
  4. Yea the case isn't on pcpartpicker I'm getting it off amazon that's why it shows up like that there but that's the case I'm getting, do you think my build is strong enough to be able to do all those things I said?
