quick question for new build..

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so i plan to build a high end system this summer but have one major noob question..

i want a high end gaming rig (1080p @ 60fps with the ability to step up to 4k) and the ability to do some minor video editing (corel videostudio x8). I plan to put a Pascal Titan in it.

here is the question, how will these two processors/mobo setups differ:

skylake 6700k with a z170 mobo vs broadwell-e 6900k with a x99 mobo?

i realize the price diff is huge but that's not a concern.. what i want to know is how the extra 4 cores will help with gaming? is there a benefit to the newer tech z170 mobo over the x99? also (noob question) why is the clock speed slower on the 6900k (3.2ghz) vs the 6700k (4ghz)?

thanks!

the extra cores would ONLY help with things other than gaming. the x99 setup could actually yield worse gaming performance while guaranteed giving you better video editing performance.

Any graphics card that you get from Nvidia will use the nvenc encoding for the drivers (any driver over I think 338 or so). Visualstudio x8 is still set up for CUDA encoding so you will actually have 0% GPU usage since HW Acceleration will not work while encoding making the processor do ALL of the work. So if you stick with that program you will definitely need a good CPU to make up for the lack of support with nvenc.

You will need to get VS X8.5 or go with a new program to utilize the HW Acceleration and nvenc.
