Indeed. I think it's time to get some more games.
I'd go with an ITX case. It's what I've been using for the past 3 years.
I loved my 980 TI until it died. It really is a great card.
If you're near a micro center, they usually have ones in stock. They have the FTW3 in the boston store for around $800 last week.
Cable management is glorious.
I am going to piggyback off this. I am having a similar issue with my PC as well. When I start playing a game, within 5/10 minutes, my screen will go black, but I can hear in team speak and still speak to them. Only way I can fix the issue is if I do a manual reboot. I've already reinstalled my drivers and tried most of the suggestions people have said out there. Has anyone else had this issue and been able to fix it. My current setup is...
CPU: i5 4590 3.3gGHz
Motherboard: ASRock - H97M-ITX/AC Mini ITX LGA1150
Memory: Corsair - Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1866 Memory
