750ti is a nice little card but will not last the test of time in the same way your g80 card did.

Otherwise a smaller drive possibly in conjunction with a 4770K might be better future proofing. I expect SSDs will continue their drop in price/GB over the coming years but CPU price/performance seems to have heavily stagnated.

They jacked up the regularly-$330 Core i7-4770K with a fake $350 price tag, then they "discounted" it to $315--saving you an actual $15 and an imaginary $20.Would like to see the Devils Canyon chips hit retail and I initially specced a 4770K so will probably go with the 4790K.
