    I think I'll get a PCIe to M.2 card for the 3rd drive but I presume it'll only ever use 4 lanes regardless of whether it's connected through the PCH or via a PCIe slot.

    Worthwhile upgrade for GTX690?

    Hi guys

    1. Would an SLI configuration of GTX980s be a worthwhile upgrade from a GTX690 in your opinion?

    Or

    2. Would even x2 GTX970s still be a decent and worthwhile upgrade?

    It's not particularly that I can't afford a better card it's the noise issue that I'm wary of. I don't want fans screaming away in an effort to keep things cool. ;)
