AMD makes great CPU's.You guys are making a mighty fine argument toward a 1080, maybe I'll just wait on the 490s.
Tax season is when I do my builds.
You're not missing anything by getting 780's over 290's IMHO.IDK man just like the phenom 2s I have a fondness for AMD gpus.
And I've had alot, HD 7770, 270X 280X, 290X.
I'm still kicking my self for getting these 780s over 290s.
Zen sounds good. I jumped ship and snagged a 6700K on black friday. That way I can still use Win7 rather than Win10 + Zen.I'll probably end up doing a new build if I get a 1080 lol
+1 the 1070 is a really good card from what I read!I think something like a GTX 1070 would be a better idea than two RX 480's. One GTX 1070 is cheaper than two RX 480's, and it offers better performance too.
I'm not sure if a GTX 1080 would be worthwhile for you to buy. Really depends upon what resolution you're playing at, and what kind of games you play (whether you play more or less resource intensive ones for instance) for the most part.

I ran a 6850, 7850, and a 280x, all sucked vs Nvidia EXCEPT the 6850. That thing killed my 550ti somehow.
But maybe I'm comparing apples to oranges here pitting higher end GPU's to lower/mid tier ones...
