    I added a better quality power supply, and changed the motherboard and case because they were out of stock (Tell me if I am wrong, because I may live in a differnet country than you). Also, a lot of people don't know this, but the correct term is "future compatible," not "future proof."
  2. Hey man!

    Thanks for the answer! Your system looks pretty good but I was kind of hoping for a bit more power so that i can over clock and then eventually add another 980ti for a total beast of a pc! Hopefully that way it will be totally future compatible :D Where a bouts are you from man? Im from the UK and i can pick up all of those parts listed and a little more from www.scan.co.uk for £1684.39 which i think is pretty damn good for a pc this powerful! I have also been having a little play with PC part picker and managed to find all of the parts that i listed, i think that this is the link: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jZykK8

    Please have a look and let me know what you think especially when compared to other systems of the same price tag!

    Good to hear from you MystoPigz!
    Thanks man

    Since you can get all of the parts, that is a great build! This rig will be a beast workstation and will run all games (And probably most future games) at 1080p on maxed settings with at least 60 FPS.
