    It's nice, but I think I'm going to add another 980 for SLI really soon.

    Very nice !! I noticed EVGA GTX 980Ti but only a EVGA 550W PSU should consider more wattage as 980Ti requires minimum of 600W PSU.
    As other mention about potential SLI and upgrade , i myself do like EVGA products.

    Hi there.

    Nice one - but I think as someone else pointed out you should consider a bigger PSU.

    My experience in Engineering is having estimated the requirements for your needs is to get the next size up -- running a slightly larger unit at say 50% is far more beneficial and efficient to running a smaller one constantly at say 80-90%. It will generate less heat too --- the amount of heat from that rig would probably heat my house too in the winter !!!!.

    I get better fuel consumption for instance in a 3 litre BMW running at a leisurely 3200 RPM in 5 / 6 gear than someone in a 1.5 litre car running flat out at 4400 RPM. !!!! (Gas / Petrol -- not Diesel BTW).

    Cheers

    Really i see an EVGA 550 G2 in the second picture of the first post. As it is not enough for that Graphics card, definitely won't be for SLI of 2 of those cards.
