hello im helping my friend build a gamming lapto today
im using xotic pc as they have a laptop im really liking for him.
its between the titan 002 and 012
as they both support ddr4

these laptops are easly up gradable even the graphics cards that there are two of
we want this laptop to last as long as possible without upgradeds.
so i have a few things to ask.
heres the laptop for refrance
http://www.xoticpc.com/msi-gt80s-titan-sli002-p-8751.html

first are 2 gtx 980m's that much better then 2 gtx 970ms that its worth $600?


other then the poorly optimized batman game are there any games that need more then 10gb of ram to run?
i was planing on 16gb but the fact batman needs 12gb to run well makes me think in 4 years 16gb may be the minuim. also dose anyone see needing faster then 2133 anytime soon for gaming?

is a / NVMe ssd that much faster then a normal ssd? its official speed is listed as 3 times faster but does it actually achieve this in the real world

getting extra copper cooling sounds good but it also might just make it pointlessly annoying when it comes time to upgrade should i add it?

is the IC Diamond Thermal Compound worth the extra money over the stock stuff?



now a few things for those that have used xotic
for the love of god what is the mystery gift? im sure it changes but i cant find one video showing an example of what he might get. andi have to choice between the mystry gift or a handful of msi accessories.


are any of the bounce services realy worth it?
