Hello everyone.

I don't know what will be a better upgrade in performace, technologie, cost.

My main system is a I7-3820 mobo X79 rampage iv formula, 16 GB ddr3 2133 mhz CL 10, gtx 980 TI, pcie-ssd, sound card, etc. cooling custom water loop.

The main use of this pc : gaming, video encoding, websurfing, HI-FI home theater, office work while @ home. arduino dev, etc.

The main idea is to be ready for VR and also gain some extra performance since DX12 will be using more that 6 cores, easy overclock will be great since my sound card does not like any change on FBS over 110 MHZ the optical signal just keep intermittent.


I have two ideas coming around:

A )

Just Upgrade my CPU to i7 4930K and get it overclock to 4.4 GHZ.
Cost around $ 400

What to reach:

Easy overclock, performance close to 14k on passmark.
Extra cores.
no issue with the sound card.

B)

Upgrade to X99 asus or msi gaming 7 with i7-5820k and get 32 GB ram ddr4 3200 mhz CL 15 or 16
Cost around $ 823.

What to reach:

Easy overclock, performance close to 15k on passmark.
Extra cores
Ramdisc.: 16 GB
m.2 port
16GB extra ram.
no issue with the sound card.

All the ideas are very welcome, since In one mount will be in Orlando for pickup all biggrin.gif
