You'll get good performance but I wouldn't say the same.

How would it be cheaper than a 4790k+Asus ROG Maximus VII Formula+32GB ram for $500US?
Same performance, unlikely when it comes to streaming/broadcasting.

For most generations, an i7 is about 40-50% more performance than an i5.... I'd hardly call that the same.

You mean 40-50% more performance in multi-threaded synthetic benchmarks which look great on paper but amount to minimal (if any) real world gaming performance differences.

But the i7 would reduce his performance loss via streaming with HT

6700K 1130 USD vs 4790K 500 USD?

I would take the 4790K but you are definitely getting ripped off or just building a system irregardless of price because even if I choose the way too good parts it comes down to this for 6700K:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor ($483.00 @ Centre Com)
Motherboard: Asus Z170-PRO ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($289.30 @ Newegg Australia)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($179.00 @ Umart)
Total: $951.30
Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available

That's good 600 AUD cheaper than what you had there and can it be made even for less. It's 32GB RAM too, not 16.

Plus that extra 20-25% MT power from HT is not worth the extra +100 USD. And if he does need MT power better build a E series system with X99 and 6800K or 6850K or their predecessors or a Xeon.

In gaming the gain can be quite large. Not only in benchmarks.

My friend is the one that selected the parts he wanted as per first post. I could make it cheaper myself with changing parts up like you have.

However these are the specific parts he wanted & you will find it being a stretch to find cheaper.

ASUS Maximus VIII Formula Motherboard
Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB (4x4GB) DDR4
Intel Core i7 6700K

Anyway have given said mate an update about the 4790K being the seemingly good choice to go per the responses. If he changed his mind & doesnt want it anymore, might even nab it myself! Replace my X58 System or use for something else tongue.gif

Hate to break it to you but... faster CPUs get better framerates. That's it I said it. It's witchcraft I know.

Agreed, that mobo he wants is overkill and costs almost 3x what a normal Z170 does XD I guess he goes for looks over cost. Just grab the 4790K system if it's a good deal in AU. There really isn't much difference compared to 6700K. It's 1 generation apart and they can clock about the same.
