Hey /g/, rate my build before I pull the trigger.

Pull the trigger, OP. By that I mean fucking kill yourself you faggot. Go back to /v/ where you belong.
Listen, assuming you're actually being serious and this isn't some elaborate ruse cruise that you're taking us all on, you should really not purchase that. If you really and truly need to play vidya on a laptop for whatever reason and can't have a desktop then maybe consider a laptop with a desktop 980. The performance will be significantly that of a 980m and for a much lesser price because it isn't alienware shite http://www.eurocom.com/ec/configure(2,336,0)ec
you fell for the bait newfags
also none of you are allowed to download this image it is too rare and I have it copyrighted
I don't see a gfx card thread or anything so why not ask here.
I have a Intel 3570k, 8gb ram, and ASSRock Z77 motherboard. What card should I get? Would current higher end cards be bottle-necked by my two year old hardware?
While OP is probably a five year old, you falling for his sloppy bait my kid brother could have called out doesn't put you much higher on the intelligence scale.
He's right ya know? You clearly fell for this obvious and idiotic bait which makes you even more retarded than OP.
Also saying shit like
>you can spend half the money to build a desktop and it will perform 2x better
is a sign that you're /r/pcmasterrace scum and should fuck off back to there
I'm thinking $200? Would that be enough to get a card that lets you play anything current without dropping frames? I don't really care about muh cutting edge gfx and stuff. I do want to be able to stream also, as I understand it though my processor matters more for that, I might need an aftermarket cooler?
A 380 should fit your needs. It's mid-tier, but should be able to effortlessly play every 1080p game you throw at it with decent settings.
You never 'need' an aftermarket cooler unless you OC, but it gives you lower temps (better on your hardware, could prevent thermal throttling if you have overheating issues) and is much quieter. You can find good ones for 20-30$, so they're not that big of an investment. If you replace your cooler you'll also need thermal paste.

well played OP
The difference between thermal paste brands is what, 3 degrees tops? Unless yo uare balls-to-the-wall overclocking it doesn't matter. Besides if you are balls to the wall you'd have a D15 and noctua's paste is the best.
