Makes sense. This might be the first console ever for me.
I've seen many people reporting problems with the Gaming app on various forums, it's buggy as hell. MSI may fix it some day but now it's best to uninstall it and use the Afterburner.
Try to overclock that RAM, I've seen benchmarks where DDR4 2133 and 2400 limited Skylake performance a lot in some CPU intensive games, not just in 3DMark. That's the reason why Haswell was faster than Skylake in some launch reviews, reviewers used slow DDR4. Fortunately most games tend to be GPU limited, so your memory shouldn't be a bottleneck in those.
Release bios: it seems like Gigabyte has made several updates to the bios:
Very disappointing performance vs. 1080.
I wouldn't go with Westmere Xeon, even though the price is so low and it would help with the video editing. Xeon won't give you much more gaming performance and you need a lot of CPU power to truly take advantage of 144Hz screen. In some games you could see a massive increase in the minimum fps with a modern CPU. 6700K likes fast memory, 3200+ MHz is a must at current relatively low prices. 5820K isn't that hungry for memory bandwidth, it's fine with a quad channel...
US: MSI Gaming X Europe: Palit GameRock/Jetstream and Gainward Phoenix. All of these are very quiet and max out at around 70C if the case airflow is good.
Gaming X has superior cooler, it has gotten a lot of praise for being cool and quiet. Strix isn't awful but it's noticeably louder. Both of them will boost to over 1900MHz at stock. Take the MSI.
Unless you're on a tight budget I'd suggest buying a 1080. Cheapest custom card is 669€ in Europe: Another option is EVGA ACX 3.0 for 679€ 1080 will be comfortably faster than oc'd 980 Ti, 15-20%.Edit: I know even the cheapest 1080 is overpriced. It doesn't have a great price/performance value, but if you want...
Reference card may be limited by the pcb and bios. Of course it's possible that Pascal simply cannot do any more than 2000-2200Mhz, no matter the cooling or power delivery.EK will provide blocks for Asus and MSI custom cards but not for Evga. If you want to buy an Evga card, you have to go with reference pcb.
