  1. First time PC Builder, but interested and fascinated by PC's and the way you can mod, design, and overclock the cr@p out of it. Idea behind the PC; upgrading my current PC ( 8GB DDR3, i5 - 3570k, GTX 650Ti ), to something that could contend with the heavyweight AAA titles that are coming out for the next 3-4 years, before needing to upgrade. Moreover, im thinking of putting my toe in the water and indulge into CPU overclocking, while trying to get something that stays relatively quiet. What I'm thinking of, in terms of specs, all fitting inside of a Fractal Designs R5 (with or without the window) chassis; Asus Z97 Maximus VII Ranger - w/ i7 - 4970k - w/ Corsair H75, 2 x Kingston HyperX Fury DDR3-1600 16GB Kits - w/ Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX980Ti Samsung 850 Evo 128 / 500 GB SSD + WD Red 3TB HDD All being powered by an EVGA Supernova 1000 P2 ATX PSU. http://au.pcpartpicker.com/p/XTmB6h - Forgot I could do that. All of which, is open to suggestion, of course. Anyway, to why I'm here, a couple questions; Q1) Major one, which would add another $300 or so; Z97 or X99? This is a primary GAMING pc; not productivity, in terms of rendering or production. Q2) I know the R5 case comes with two fans, but would you suggest any fans, or cpu coolers, that would help in maintenance of safe operating temperatures of the PC? If the CPU cooler is fine, and the stock FD fans aren't that great (heard they're ok), what would you suggest instead? Q3) I have two SSD's - One for the OS (128), and another for games - is that suggested, or should i boot it all onto one SSD? Q4) Should I go SLI with another G1 Gaming 980ti? Money aside, of course, cause i know 1000W should be able to handle two in SLI. Q5) Suggested 4K Gaming monitor, or wait for a decently priced 4k IPS panel? Any help you could throw my way would be GREATLY appreciated.
