The University of Sydney is running a 10-15 minute study for gamers of all ages examining the relationship between personality and video game use. You can also find out your gaming personality profile. https://sydneypsy.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9WtE0LKWzw4yvBz WARNING: Some participants have found that the survey website doesn’t work with certain ad blockers.

I've viewed these forums intermittently over many years, thanks to all the people that continue to maintain the "Parts Guide" sticky, it's great. I'm building a new computer and I've based my build off the builds found in the "Parts Guide". Would you guys mind having a look over it and making any suggestions/corrections? My budget is flexible but somewhere between $1500 - $2000 AUD. I'm definitely interested in over-clocking (although I've never done it before) and hopefully I'll be gaming at 2560 x 1440 resolution. CPU Intel® Core™ i5 4690K $390 MB Asus TUF GRYPHON Z97 $188 RAM Kingston Hyper X Fury 8GB (2x4GB) $99 GPU Gigabyte WindForce 4G GTX 980 $705 OR Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Phantom 4GB $709 OR Galax GeForce GTX 980 V2 4GB $649 SSD/HDD --Reclaimed from previous build-- PSU Corsair RM650 650Watt $175 CASE Nanoxia Deep Silence 1 $129 CPU_COOL Corsair Hydro Series H100i CPU Cooler $159 TOTAL ~$1845 + shipping 1. Is the 650W PSU enough, should I go for the 750W instead? 2. Does anyone have any thoughts on the Z97 motherboards, is there any preference towards a particular model? 3. The GPUs are about the cheapest GTX 980s I could find. Am I better off trying to get the best clock for buck (Gainward) or getting the cheapest card and overclocking myself (Galax)? When I'm done I'll post some build pictures, although I can't promise anything flashy.
Thinking the RMA was going to take 4-6 Weeks... I prepared. 7970 from a friend who said 'sucked in' & to keep it & I'm using 1080p by the way. So Yep, I have a brand new replacement Gigabyte R9 290-OC 1040Mhz With RMA forms showing it's been replaced & Receipt stating original purchase date of original card and 4 Months of (Return ot store) Warranty left, but Gigabyte has a 3yr warranty still active. I have the Original Box, manual, paper bits in the box,.. everything but the Driver disc and the 4Pin Molex>PCIE adapters. So.. as they are still currently without a pricedrop on the new ones, being around $450 AUD, what would this be worth? (Has been put into my machine for testing purposes, which it passed with flying colors, that make it 'officially used'?) Would you personally, use a new pricing method or a near new pricing method?
