Yep it's an obscene amount of ram
8gb is fine

Now then, What about a PSU? 750w, 850w, 900w? I'm actually indifferent about it being modular or not now, because for me, the cheaper, the better. And hopefully the cheap price doesn't mirror its quality.

Don't cheap out on a PSU, it's the most important component of any PC.

That is very true. You can buy some pretty cheap PSU's, but they are not reliable and do not have the safety features the better PSUs have. A cheap PSU can take out your whole system if it goes out. The better ones have all kinds of safety features built in to keep that from happening. Plus, remember that every component in your computer depends on the PSU to power it. As Boozad said, that is the last place you want to skimp and save a few dollars.

Don't buy AMD cards. They have a very high failure rate. I see alot of Radeon type users on the BSOD Topic having issues with their AMD type card. If you really need a low budget then it's your best choice. But remember, low money = bad products and high money = good products. You always get what you spend on.

Twice the memory won't mean much unless you are playing at 4k...

I'd opt for the least expensive 980 you can find....find one with a rebate, donate blood or plasma

I think donating means free no? But seriously, my Ti was not an investment I regret.

Yep it is a commitment going for a 980
Luckily prices are dropping by black Friday possibly only a few drops will be needed instead of a few gallons
