New and Final System (for a while), Getting Married

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
So the time has come. I am getting married next year. This will probably be the final upgrade that I do for a very very long time. I enjoy gaming and streaming.

I have two systems laid out and I am curious if the performance advantages will be worth the price in the long run. Maybe you guys can suggest a better system, but here is what I have come up with on my own. Basically is it worth the extra cost to go with the more expensive one vs. the less expensive one. I will be gaming at 1440p.

System #1:

Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Extreme7+ LGA 1151 Intel Z170 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157627

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117563

GPU: SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 390 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202164

RAM: CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB 3000Mhz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233863

Hard Drive: G.SKILL Phoenix FTL 2.5" 240GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231922

PSU: CORSAIR CX series CX600M - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139048

Case: NZXT S340 Black - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146190

Total Price After Discounts: $1,018.93


System #2:

Motherboard: ASRock Z170 Gaming K4 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157634

CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819117563

GPU: SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 390 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814202164

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB 2400Mhz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231886

Hard Drive: G.SKILL Phoenix FTL 2.5" 240GB - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231922

PSU: CORSAIR CX series CX600M - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139048

Case: NZXT S340 Black - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811146190

Total Price After Discounts: $932.93

So basically I was curious if it would be necessary to go with System 1 over System 2. I don't overclock anymore (besides RAM profiles). I Game at 1440p and stream a little.


If you guys have better suggestions let me know thanks.

I'm not sure, but I'd like to mention here that the Cooler Master V550 is a higher quality PSU than the CX600M and is only $5 more after the rebate:

I'd still go with K processors, even if you don't plan to overclock...should help protect future resale value better....wink.gif

If you could scrounge up another $100 or so on top of this, you could swap out the Fury for a 980Ti.

Whatever you do, try to maximize your GPU.

You're welcome. I should mention that I could recommend PSUs that cost less, but I didn't because I didn't want to downgrade you to a non-modular PSU.

I am spoiled by my fully modular psu at the moment. So going to semi-modular is kinda heart breaking. The PSU cover on the case helps though.

Selling my current system for $1700 (monitors and all its already sold, he is picking up this weekend) so I am just trying to recoup some money while upgrading at the same time.

The i7-6700k also has a significant stock clock sped advantage over the non-K. Personally, I'd spring for it...wink.gif

Some PCI lanes, BIOS features, overclocking capability, and no fancy GAMING ARMOR or LEDs. biggrin.gif
