Or are you just trolling, because nobody is that stupid.

I've got MSi GTX 970 Gaming 4G, imho, there's only one bad thing is 3.5Gb+512Mb. Not so good for 4k but on 1080p all games are plays well on max\ultra settings. And about psu, i can recommend you to read this thread.

i would go for Radeon R9 390x, price is like GTX970(at least in my country), but performance is something between GTX970 and GTX980

What is wrong? If you're on a budget, go for AMD, compared to nVidia or Intel, the same price
CPU or GPU will be less powerful than AMD.

Depends on which gen it is, might be actually good price.

IMHO, if budget is concern, one should always go AMD. No matter what, no matter what you do, unless they are synthetic benchmarks, common user won't notice the difference in performance. The one and only problem to look for if choosing AMD is the TDP rating, on some of their CPU's it's just horrible.

When choosing, always check the benchmarks and get a CPU in your allocated budget which offers best bang-for-the-buck, same goes to GPU's. Everything other is rather irelevant nowdays, especially on budget builds, excluding PSU, don't ever buy a no-name one, active pfc is a must, and at least, silver+ efficiency.
