Did I not give you great suggestions back on post #2 and #4 ??????

None of us here will give you recommendations on cheap hardware, we are not about that

For 1 video card, I recommend the 850 P2 or G2.

I sincerely apologize. But what I'll do is grab the 1000w P2 so I can have so breathing room in the other-worldly event that I further upgrade to a Titan series later on... Again, I'm sorry for any misunderstanding or trouble. You guys are honestly a great help, and I appreciate it.

Hi,
Well even a titan z requires a 600w or greater
The titan x super clocked shows 600w as well
So that is a lot of breathing room

850w P2 is fine especially if only one gpu is going to be used

I got a 1200 P2 just in case I wanted to eventually sli 2 titan z's or x's but santa would have to awful generous to accomplish that task

This is indeed interesting this one dropped in price 120.us

Scratch my idea on the 1000w, I'm picking out an 850w. Still doing a GTX 970 though. Technically I COULD pay for a 980/Ti, but mom would have more than hissy fit about me spending that much. She's not real enthused about me wanting a 970 either (or another GPU in general) since I already built the machine and want a different card already. Mom, I get crappy performance out of the GT 610. Of course I want a better card...

Yep a GT610 is a joke in comparison
I have one still in the box never used it did not fit and wasn't worth sending back it was so cheap.

I ended up with a GT640 and now it's sitting unused because now both machines have 980's in them

Thought about putting them up on ebay but what a pain to do so :/

I didn't have much in terms of a budget, so the GT 610 was the way I had to go. Overall I had a 400 budget, and now I realize I probably should've waited until now to build it sine I have a lot more to spend. But... I was determined to build a machine to prove myself to my friends that I could... It's a step up from my old 256MB card I had in my old Dell though xD

I didn't mean anything bad for buying one hell I have 1 too
Both of the GT's I have sitting around now are 1gb cards so they are limited in usage but the machine they were going into was a limited space or mini case.

Its fine I just thought at the time I bought it, that I was going to get like 1080p, 60FPS with it. xD

At least you got a 2gb
I had a 220w power supply to work around at the time so 1gb was it and even that was 80w over 220w
Live a learn we all do that

That's why ebay was created to sell used stuff

One thing I never liked about the 1000 P2 was the red video cables, easily cured with the custom cable set. It is now my backup PSU
