You said that it would be stupid to go with Skylake over X99 and that's a pretty broad statement. I think that's why you have had so much push-back on that statement

By the way, on Newegg, the lowest price ATX 1151 board is less than $80, the lowest price ATX 2011-v3 is $170, I would not say that's minimal although it appears the the 5820k is cheaper right now but that's probably because they running low on stock and are very popular. Another note the performance gains from z170 are there but the aren't that big and are mostly specific to tasks that will utilize all 6 cores.

The 5820k is an awesome CPU and I would love to have one but it doesn't mean the Z170 platform is not a good idea for those who fit in that category.

I mean on this forum, where most people are using overclocked i7s and i5s.

However, I'd still say it's a bad idea to go with Skylake in a budget instance, it still makes more sense to go with Haswell

One last time, you can get an I5 for $180 and mobo for $80 = $260
the lowest price 2011 v 3 is $385 and mobo for $170 = $455 An almost $200 difference ---

How is the X99 in a budget instance better? I guess I am not understanding you very well.

Most gamers would rather spend the $200 on a graphics card I am sure.

Read the last sentence again. X99 isn't good in a budget instance, but Haswell is better than Skylake in such circumstances
post #8904 of 9561
"Stupid" was the key word that made me comment. We can debate X99 vs. Z170 all day and they would be great debates with a lot of good info. But it's small minded to insult people for making a choice that benefits them the most. There is no one platform to rule them all.

C'mon guys...
This is why I was specifically referring to "Top-end" Z170 for a reason...

My point being; if you're currently looking at building a new system, and have the budget for an i7 6700K etc, why not just go for the 5930K? They cost roughly the same, but X99 has more to offer.

When Z170 + 6700K launched, it was cheaper than most X99 options, and it made sense. (especially when it wasn't out of stock)
Now, that isn't necessarily the case, and when you consider your available options, "Why not?"

Lastly, I didn't call anyone "stupid." (tho, it was probably a poor choice of words)

Fair enough. We got off topic anyways, back to the regular scheduled 750D programming...

So sorry to hear that. My condolences to you and the rest of your family. Your system would still be relevant. Unless you'd want to go for the latest and greatest or more cores, the z97 should still serve you well.

Sorry to hear that Sir. It's always tough on a family to lose a close member and especially when it's sudden. Hang in there and I hope you can get to your system soon. thumb.gif
