  1. yes it is great for now and good for future gaming.
  2. If it gets worse in the future, should i just SLI the 970
  3. Best answer
    yes if you see that in future you cannot play at ultra settings anymore with gtx 970 then you can go for sli but i dont think you will require another card in the next 3 year if you play at 1080p plus make sure your board supports sli.
  4. The only thing I would change is the PSU. It doesn't have a favorable review.

    Stick with Antec, Corsair, Seasonic, XFX or EVGA right now.

  5. yes the cm thunder is not a great PSU you can choose from antec high current gamer, seasonic, super flower, resowill capstone, xfx, evga b2 and g2 , corsair ax/hx/tx these are all quality psu for a gaming pc.
  6. No the corsair cx and vs are average PSU not at all good for a gaming PC and for overclocking.
