What are you asking opinions on? Cause you already bought it.

idk just wanted general opinions, preferably on peripherals and on the 360mm cooler I chose.

also you can ask opinions on stuff you've already bought, the name of the thread is "Parts List Opinions" not "Un-Purchased Parts List Opinions"

Generally this is a forum for opinions about parts before purchase. Our opinions won't matter because you already purchased the parts and therefore aren't going to switch them out.

The first build is fine, I don't see anything I would have changed out. Solid parts all around. If you're doing any upgrades to the second build, the R9 480 will be nice.

well actually I could still swap them out technically but I see what you're saying. Do you think I should hold out for the 1080 or just snag a 980ti since they're going down in price a bit?

i'm actually excited for the 480. I might snag a 980ti for the second build depending how much they go down in price.

I'd say just go with 1080. Gives option for 4K monitor and only a bit more than the 980ti.

Two 480s crossfired beat a 1080 for less price.

hmm alright not bad. im just trying to wait for the 1080 to become available again.
thanks for the input I hadn't looked into the 480s for down the road.
