One TitanX is out of my price range sadly. GTX 970, or 980 is what I'm aiming at.


You've probably already considered this, but if not, keep this in mind:

I use Tom's as my starting point when making a new PC. I do consider other sources and cross refer a lot of reviews on CPUs, GPUs, powersupplies and other bits and pieces. But I find these reviews really helpful in working out what I can get for my money.

My other advice is be disciplined with your funding for your build. Set a limit that you won't exceed and then focus on getting the most bang for your buck on every component. There's no point in paying £50 more for a competent which is only slightly better than its competitor.

And always, always, buy a quality power supply. Review the shit out of that particular component.
