New build i7 4790k maybe?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello here,

First i'm very sorry for my poor English, I 'll do my best to make you understand me.


I think to change the CPU since i have a 144htz monitor and a GTX 970 since 1 week. I mainly use my computer as a gaming station. I play Arma3 mainly and some others recent games. I was thinkig about a i7 4790k with a Z97 motherboard like Asus Maximus 7 hero. I have 1000€ to spend for CPU, Mobo and SSD. Do you have any advice for me like maybe think about X99 socket or something like that ?

...if I had €1000 to spend on CPU, mobo & SSD now to upgrade I would go with X99 even for gaming machine - seems more "future-proof"

something like this maybe:

I would probably get an X99 too, X99 is simply more fun. That said the 4790K on a nice Z97 board would be better in game, especially as you are only running one GPU. Then you might also be able to get a really fast/large SSD.

That system 3m3k picked out is pretty nice, though I would go with an Asus X99-Pro or X99-Deluxe. wink.gif

Asus X99 Deluxe was my original choice but then I saw it going over the €1000 budget and swapped for the MSI SLI board.biggrin.gif

The performance in games is very similar now, when X99 has been on the market for like 2 months - not saying it will improve for sure but I think it's a good guess.

The other reason I would chose X99 over Z97 at the moment is if you decide on Z97 platform you get top of the shelf chip,mobo and ram and there won't be anything else for 1150 socket so no other upgrade options than replacing everything again.
When you go with X99 you buy the "2011-3 basic package" and you are able to upgrade CPU for something like 6930K or other speed demon in the future, faster RAM ....the last gen 2011 lasted long time

Lastly if you decide to do other things than gaming on your machine there is much more potential in X99.

Watch out for those Samsung SSD's as there was some issue with decreasing performance for older data but they released some firmware updates lately that supposed fix this...
