Not new, just need a crash course in teh PC world! and some guidance for new PC build.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
So ive been gone for quite some time. Wasnt quite sure where this thread would fit, so im just putting it here. Last time i was active the new Sandy/Ivy bridge cpu's were being leaked so around 2012? That being said, I need a crash course in new pc tech/components and was hoping you guys could help me out with that! Over the last few days Ive been scanning allllllll over this glorious forum for information but right now im working 12 to 15hour days and its making it a major pain to get caught up. Was hoping i could get directed to any particularly good threads here.


Im actually very interested in building A new PC, which is why im making this thread. I know skylake has recently come out and DDR4 is here & Direct X12 is looking promising, I'm just lost and not quite sure where to start really. My old PC specs are here: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/J7F2dC definitely starting to feel dated frown.gif


Im honestly not quite sure what im lookin for haha. Im really enjoying the CM Stormtrooper case from what ive been seeing. But heres A small list of things That id like, although it isnt a requirement, would definitely be a plus.
1)Toolless!
2)PSU cover for the clean look, preferably able to install PSU upside down aswell
3)Case generally being "modular", similar to Stormtrooper drive bays.
4)Full tower.
5) TONS of cable management options! Dont ever want to use a hole saw again!
6) Wanted to try out a watercooled CPU cooler for the first time, so any suggestions would be great.
7)Minimum 16GB of memory.

as for other components, I'm going to be using this build for heavy streaming/video editing/gaming and i'm not quite sure which socket I should go with. Budget would be anywhere between 1100 to 1400USD.



Any and all info would be appreciated!

Streaming and editing would benefit from a 5820K. More cores, more threads. Unless I'm mistaken you need more threads/cores for streaming vs just having higher IPC.

No you don't. I stream on my 2600K with no issues. Sure, in the odd highly demanding game it'll knock your framerate down a smidge but nothing terrible. If you have an Nvidia GPU you can encode the stream on it with minimal to zero perf loss.

Having said that, you can get a 5820K for like 370 USD if you shop around so for that price you'd be a bit nutty not to get the six core. X99 boards can be had for about 250USD for a decent one.
