with some motherboards it is as easy as changing a number in the bios, testing for stability, and calling it a day. Might not be the absolute max overclock but just changing the multiplier is stupid simple. Then look into tweaking voltages accordingly. the option to overclock is nice to have smile.gif

Any comments/critiques that can get it back down to around $1000 would be great.

Show your work, as your albegra teacher once said, if you're going to suggest a build!

I got rid of the i5 and put in the i7 4790k for future proof ..and I will look into guides on overclocking as well.

Looks like I won't be able to get down to $1000

Currently it's at $1258~ which isn't too terrible.



Final thoughts? smile.gif

The 120GB SSD is woefully inadequate. Get at least a 250GB, like the one I linked earlier for $25 more than your 120GB.

I'd get a 4690k over a 4790k. 100 bucks cheaper and you only lose like 2-3 fps in games smile.gif You'll never know how games will develop, but I think you'll be able to use a 4690k for at least 3 years and still be fine. Even a 2500k for 1080p gaming today is fine when overclocked, so there's a lot to save there smile.gif You won't notice the difference between a 4690k and 4790k

People just bashed the i7 4790k price point and cant even think before typing........ i recommended the i7 4790k because of only one thing "ONE THING" it freaking turbo upto 4.4GHZ that means he doesnt need to overclock at all he will get an overclocked performance with out overclocking, OFC the best option is the Xeon but its a 3.3GHZ CPU and he cant/wont overclock so getting a CPU that can turbo to 4.4GHZ will be an easy choice for people who wont overclock its that simple.


Overclock.net cant get over two things the hate of laptops and the idea that they are getting closer to desktop performance "and getting cheaper at the same time" plus if some one recommends something that has never been said before then it must be banished by Satan

Thanks.

I know it's about $100 more but I'd honestly rather get the 4790k just for future proofing alone.

Overclocking is a fun experience you should try it but if the choice was between an overclocking i7 and non overclocking i7 at the same frequency i would've recommended the non overclocking one because it will save you around 100$ but to say the truth getting a 4.4GHZ right of the box is really nice + by pressing two buttons you can get all cores to turbo to 4.4GHZ easily or even 4.5GHZ with out even changing the volts which makes it a lot easier and safer!

Hope you enjoy your new build and congrats smile.gifthumb.gif

If you're not going to Overclock, why get the K version of the CPU?
You could save $30 just by switching from the K to the Non-K version.
4690K - $240 @ Newegg
4690 - $210 @ Newegg ($225 -$15 Promo up until 5/22)

Since you're not overclocking, you could probably get by fine with a cheaper motherboard too. Same socket, just a different chipset.

Optical Drives (DVD Burners, etc) are also available on sale for as little as $12. Check your promotional emails, they're usually in there. If you're looking to shave off some dollars, spending the full $20 on one isn't a smart move.

Check some of the posts in this thread, there was an entire discussion regarding that.

I might be open to overclocking in the future and for only $30 more I think it's worth it.

Also, I realized I have a perfectly good Blu Ray optical drive in my current PC so I can just use that. smile.gif
