Building new I7 system

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

It's time for that "big" upgrade and I want to built my new system based on your tips and suggestions.

- First - 8 GB rams DDR3
- Motherboard I7 support that overclocks and supports my current GPU.
- I think my current PSU will hold up,but I'm sceptical.

Let the tips and suggestions roll in.

If you're going with a new system, I'd go skylake. Hence, no DDR3 but DDR4. I'm assuming you have limited budget and hence want best bang for your buck, so I'm going to go by that.

Should last you quite some time considering you invest in the best that gen and keep with it until it does not work as intended. Also, have upgraded a few things to better help you take advantage of new technologies. Also, If you prefer AMD for your graphics, you could go FuryX and should get comparable results. Only, that I'd go with a screen that has freesync rather than G-sync.

An I7 5820k is usually less than $100 more than a 6700k setup but gives you 6 cores/12 threads. It's a much better buy.
post #5 of 12
OP, what will you primarily be using it for and how often do you upgrade? If gaming and you intend to run a single GPU, I'd go with the 6700k.

that is way overkill and not value at all :/
1- i5 6600K will suffice.
8GB DDR4 will suffice and he can always add the 2nd stick later on if his needs did grow

R9 390 is Better value than GTX 980 Ti , the 980 Ti is so overpriced .


for psu I think he can buy cheaper , there are very good quality psu for 62$ Seasonic S12II
and if he want to buy higher quality also SeaSonic 660W 80+ Platinum for 80$ still cheaper than 100$ price range of the EVGA. (SS-660XP2 )

I think the EVGA p2 is not good ? not sure , but at least it is not in the list.

just wait , I believe shilka will come he knows more than me in this. am no expert in psu.

What is your budget?

 

What online shops do you normally use?

 

If you are on a tight budget what I would do is look at some last gen hardware such as a socket 1150 motherboard with a cpu like the i7 4770k. If you are keeping your current gpu it will work with any motherboard.

The P2 is the same as the G2 its just binned higher so they sell it as a p2 but other then that they are the same psu. Also that list is over a year old the p2 he recommend isn't on that list because it was made after that list was created. It is actually one of the best psu's available.

just wait , I believe shilka will come he knows more than me in this. am no expert in psu.

1. Proof ? I suggested him that because he requested for it in his first post. Besides, If you look at his rig, you'd see he tends to ride out the system he built which was the best until the system is no longer sufficient for his need. Logically, it'd be better to go i7 rather than i5 going forward due to DX12. This is not even launched and it shows this kind of variance, and things are going to just get better.Proof
2. Again proof ? Did he send you a PM saying he would only use it for strictly gaming and nothing else ? Because I can't seem to find it.
3. Good Value, yes but not best performance. See point 1 to see why I recommended what I recommended.

What I suggested is a really good model as pointed out by ozlay.

U ℅ trident yourself again .
U talking that the OP didn't say only gaming and yet u suggest a rig based on the idea that dx12 will use more cores hhhhhhh
So u did the same u assumed that his goal is gaming !!


If we will agree his goal of this rig mainly gaming then ur link is pointless because i5 still stand best value and the link doesn't show anything about hyper threading vs no hyperthreading so it is pointless

And still stick to i5 coz i7 will be waste of money .


If he want it for gaming + other reasons let's say rendering or stuff like that then i7 6700k is stupid idea in opinion if he can afford i7 5820k same cost and perform better .
So the i7 6700k sort of silly but in my opinion right now .
