SO i purchased a machine on ebay because i wanted the limited edition case it was in. So i have a mobo 24gb ram and a 980x extreme cpu . i installed it all into a normal windowed case with a new thermal take 430 watt psu. I have 1 6pin adapter to use what kind of card can I use would like to stay nvidia was thinking gtx 1060. This will be the girlfriend / visitors pc maybe some gta 5 but mostly just some world of warcraft gaming. And just normal everyday web browsing and some youtube.

1060 ftw. That's what I'd do. I forgot how much of a beast the 980x was, 6c12t monster in 2009 or so when it came out.

1060 due to the PSU. Would say 480x otherwise, although may be splitting hairs.

980x was a heck of a CPU. Think they were over $1000 when first released... Should still hold up well, esp if OCed. Dat cache...
