No. The 390>970 and 390=980 100% almost 100% of the time at a significantly lower cost.

tomshardware is completely different then. i remember asking for advice and some people even went as far as to saying "dont get amd it will die in 3 yrs" or "even the 960 is better than the 390" .. completely misleading.

Solid build man.

I agree with one of the posters below about the sysbd being a bit on the pricy side for the budget though. There are a lot of features on that board that you are paying extra for but aren't using for this build. That being said... I don't know really what I would have spent the extra $50 - $70 on. Maybe more RAM but even then 16GB at 3k is good enough for almost every practical purpose.

Badass no-nonsense build. I feel you on wishing for the budget for a 980 Ti.

Also +1 for the sweet wall art you have behind your desk.

Yeah I agree but even if he shaved 50-60 bucks off that motherboard and added it to the GPU cost, it's still a gap to the 980 Ti.

I took it as more wishful thinking, than a practical "I should have made the 980 Ti fit into this budget".

My rule of thumb is never pay more than about $300 for a video card. You will be upgrading in a few years even if you got a $600 card today. They just don't make sense except for epeen.

Nice build but put your gpu on the first pci lane because the 1st lane is running on x16 speed the 2nd is running on x8 and the last on is running on x8 as well if you put your gpu on first lane you will have somewhere around 10-14fps increase in games! :) nice build overall though

lot of peopel told me that. but i can't seem to fit it in.. might be my case or the asrock logo..

  • 49 months ago

The logo on the chipset doesn't block a video card. I have an MSI 390 in the top slot same MB.

The 980Ti is going to crush the 390x (not to mention the 390) in everything except 4K, where it's still going to win by the 10fps you cite here. 1440p and below it's going to be 20+fps. The 6600K is not going to bottleneck the 980Ti; at the very least, not by any appreciable measure.

If you peruse here you'll see the stock 980Ti (as well as the MSI Lightning edition) handily trouncing the 390X by 20+fps except in most 4K tests.

Also here

And the stock 980Ti is seen here whomping an OC'ed 290X in 1440P, where the 4GB vram on the 290X is more than sufficient.

Well yeah but it also cost 2x as much as a 390X too.

$340 for a 390X vs $660 for a GTX 980ti.

No argument there =)

If you can afford it, it's a solid boost, is all I wanted to clarify. But I still wouldn't recommend it to most people. In fact I'd only recommend it for 4K ambitions, or if you want to absolutely crush 2K. And if you're going to go 4K, you may as well Crossfire two 390X's for roughly the same price.
