I was thinking to do one myself not long ago. This is what I came up with (although I'm still waiting for the Skylake lineup to be fully revealed before deciding what to buy):
Don't consider the workstation-class CPU, I've been doing some video editing lately and I thought some actual horsepower would come in handy.
For gaming pretty much any i5 would suffice (and cost a good 100€ less so you could buy a better GPU as the 960 is barely mid-range).
...And I thought this thread was dead and forgotten. Well, not really forgotten. It's been amusing until it lasted.
And thanks for bringing it back to life
nothing beats 980ti. not even titan x. you're still the same.
I am happy with my 980ti. I'm just pointing how much I underestimated Amd. Infact, I am playing with 2880x1800 Dsr at 75hz and and 2500x1406 at 60hz on demanding games.
Also, I actually listened to you about buying 1440p monitor. But am actually waiting for 4k displays to come. A 32 inch 4k with no AA would probably be fine in high settings. No 1440p and 4k monitor came in my country though. So I'm deciding to buy a Gsync monitor instead of just 4k.
You shoild have known that i was actually bitching more than what i was doing just to waste time. Never bought 970 But i tried to troll too much it it went wrong Anyway, nevermind about that. Shit happens.

This is unacceptable!!! You have 24 hours to come clean and apologize and be all like "Sorry Andrei, won't happen again.. I messed up.. wanted it to be green.. etc"
If not I will do my own investigation and will show no mercy for the unfortunate soul. I already have a list of suspects.
