Wanted – GPU, ideally 980Ti or similar + CPU, mainboard and RAM – i5 / i7 Haswell or higher

Hi all!

I had no luck sourcing the hardware I was looking for over Black Friday (like an idiot I thought there may have been some drops on Coffee Lake but no good).

I’ve since realised that what with Ryzen 2 out early next year, and Coffee Lake probably going to drop in price once supplies improve, I’ll do what I normally do and aim a couple of generations before, because I’m too impatient to wait that long, and I reckon older hardware will depreciate less.

I’m on i5 2500K @ 4.2GHz with a 780Ti at the moment, and want to feel a *significant* improvement @ 1440p since my main monitor is that resolution.

I looked at Ryzen (which has been at good prices) but I’ve been stung by being an ‘early adopter’ on AMD / ATI stuff before, and while I know it’s been out for a while, I’m still holding off until clock-speeds improve, and ideally any niggles are worked out.

So – anyone got anything? I’d prefer K series Intel chips with overclocking friendly (Z series) motherboards. For graphics 980Ti seems like it’ll give me the performance uplift I need without paying 1070 prices – I did own a highly overclocked 980 (non-Ti) in the past and to be honest didn’t feel it was a big enough jump up from 780.
