Besides Dark Souls 2, I haven't spent much time on any game that has released this year. Mainly spent a bunch of time going back and playing older games like Mass Effect and Skyrim. What are your feelings on this?
For all the people saying you don't need more than 8gb of ram, don't listen to them. We are reaching that point where 8gb is borderline and 16gb is the way to go to make sure you arn't bottlenecking yourself. Also future proofs yourself. Otherwise, cool beans on the build.
You may want to get a different type of 970. I haven't heard anything about twin frozr, but I have heard that msi and gigabyte cards are doing well compared to the others. Just keep in mind that the gigabyte cards are longer.
It was fun for a time, but the multiple enemies for difficulty thing and reuse of the same enemies reskinned lead to me being very disappointed. They missed the mark that dark souls 1 hit, and I hope Bloodborne rejuvenates the franchise for me.
