X99 Component Picking With A 3 Grand Budget & I Need OCN Help!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
A friend of mine wants to upgrade to X99 from Z97. He has a GTX 980, 860 Watt Seasonic, 240MM AIO cooler, 750D & peripherals. He wants to game @ 1440P. He needs a monitor & other goodies. He wants to upgrade to Pascal, but I suggested another 980 & spend the other 2500 across the build. He will be using the 5820 also.

MSI X99A-SLI Plus

5930k

G.Skill Ripjaws4 16GB (4*4GB) DDR4 2400

Acer XB270HU

 

$1620. I'm assuming he has a ssd/storage.

 

Stick with the 980 and wait for Pascal.

I would grab a X99 board of his liking and get an E5-1660V3 off eBay. It's unlocked and 8core.

5820K & he likes that board. How about USB 3.1 Type C & it's future connectivity?
