So im looking to build a new rig and my friend has offered his two 4gb gtx 960 gpus and will sell them to me for $200 including shipping as he lives in auckland and I live in rotorua is it worth getting for that price or should I just get a single gpu (recommendations) pc would be mostly gaming but also handling large photoshop documents the plan is at least 16gb ram and decent cpu to accommodate. Also what would be a good psu for a 960 sli build ? Will post my build list later

Well, it'd be OK. You're not going to find anything nearly as good for that price – at that price you'd be looking at a 1050 or less, and they're roughly equal to a single 960. A single 1060 6 GB would probably be about as fast as 960 SLI, but that's about $500. (Note that, despite the name, 1060 6 GB and 1060 3 GB have got different GPUs as well as different amounts of RAM.)

 

For a PSU for SLI, I'd suggest a 650 W model. I haven't looked at any specific models recently.

Looks pretty good! The only thing I'd really question is the case which is only listed by two stores, both of which are out of stock.

 

The other thing I'll mention is that you can probably get a PSU that's about as good for a bit less, for instance https://pricespy.co....t.php?p=2342874 or https://pricespy.co....t.php?p=4159385 There's probably other reasonable ones around that price too. Unless you specifically want that particular one for some reason, for instance because it is full modular.

Fair enough. You do realise though that if you can save about $40 by getting the RAM from Playtech or Paradigm PCs? On the other hand, send CL an email with your product list (or use the price match form on their site), and they'll probably match the price – and even if they don't, it'll probably be a lot closer to the list price than their normal price.
