You don't really need any playback software. Google CCCP for all MKV/MP4/AVI/ect and DVD playback needs. As far as I know Bluray playback still requires paid software because of the codec licensing BUT I could be wrong as I acquire all mine digitally anyways.

also, do you think i should just go with the 980 or would i get significantly better performance out of 2 970s considering it would only be 150 dollars more or so.

Personally I would stick with one 980 so you can get another one later.

Well for one, it's not an Asus. The biggest key difference being the M.2 slot. They're the only ones on the market offering a gen 3 x4 slot which will make a substantial difference pretty soon in SSD speeds.
