    Upgrade Advice for my current system

    Hello guys,

    I have some kind of a funny problem, I need to spend around 1700€ in 2 months for my PC or someting else.
    So what would u guys recommend for my current rig?

    CPU: intel i7 4930k
    Mobo: Black Rampage 4
    GPU: Asus 780ti DC2OC
    Ram: 16 GB GSkill Ripjaws @ 2400mhz
    PSU: 850W Platinum beQuite Dark Power Pro 10
    Case: Thermaltake Core V71 I like it but, the stock chassis fans are way too loud (3x 200mm fans) I want to change them and add 1 fan. Any tipps on these things?
    Cpu cooling: H100i Corsair
    256gb SSD Samsung evo pro and 1 TB HDD dont need more.

    Im currently using a 1080p display I want to upgrade to 1440p or 4k.

    If just to spend money, then go for it, but performance wise I would just do the PSU and sli 2 x 980's or Titan X. The performance on the new 5930 is not really going to give you the upgrade you would expect, for the money you are going to spend.

    Don't buy a Titan X unless you have the money to buy two and a 4k panel.

    Second 780ti.

    Or wait for Q2 this year for R9 390x and get two or one of those.
    Say hi to the next generation.

    the 980 is coming out as 980TI whit 6gig mem.
    but when im not shure.
    that is IF you are going to upgrade it.
    the 4K panels are locked to 60H.
    1440P you can get to 144HZ whit g-sync.

    I would buy a second GTX780Ti, too. Beware that you may require a PSU upgrade with it (or you may not, it looks like a sorta borderline judgement call).

    I've found NZXT 200mm fans to be very quiet, but haven't tried any other 200mm fans.

    If your fans keep blasting at full speed while your temps are low then you might do better with a fan controller.

    Another reasonable (bang for the buck) upgrade would be installing a second identical Samsung SSD in striped RAID - whenever you see one on sale.

    well a SSD for games will boost your load time on it ( for example FPS games ) between maps/loading time.
