Define expensive please? and as said already there is no need to buy a top of the line board
Some of the chaper X99 boards cost less then the more expensive Z170 boards does so saying all X99 boards are expensive is not really true

I just bought the new Ggiabyte X99 Ultra Gaming myself as i have no need for a Rampage or Godlike class motherboard


Its not the cheapest X99 board out there but looking at how much motherboard you get for the price its actually a pretty good option

Edit: its also cheaper then the Asus X99 Strix or at least it is here in Denmark.

EVGA is hit and miss after x58.

What should I look after, regarding a X99 board?

How much did you pay for that? The board I looked at for the 6700K would cost me 800 DKR. Thats why I think the X99s I found were a lot more expensive, but I havent looked at it in depth either.
Also, will it hurt my general gaming, if I choose a 5820K over a 6700K? And I will I even be able to feel any difference?
I'm having a really hard time figuring out, if I'm wasting my money with a CPU/Mobo/RAM upgrade over a GPU.

800 kr is about the cheapest and lowest for a motherboard you can get and i would not recommend a motherboard that cheap

The Gigabyte X99 Ultra Gaming is around 2500 kr which is a lot yes but is way less then the 4500-5000 kr the Asus Rampage V 10 Edition and MSI Godlike Carbon boards goes for
Its not even the most expensive X99 board form Gigabyte that would be the X99 Designare EX at around 4000 kr

If you want a cheap X99 board something like the Gigabyte X99 UD3 or the X99 SLI is around 1600-1700 kr
But you do get what you pay for in that case

I would say about 2000 kr will get you a really good X99 motherboard that has most if not everything you need
Its more then the 800 board you looked at yes but the quality of the board is better and you get a ton more features.

Its probably annoying having to explain it to me, but could you explain why I would need to use that kind of money on a motherboard? What do I miss out, by getting a cheaper one? I've never bought a motherboard that costs around 2000 DKR, and to be honest, they've never failed me.

You're paying for component quality and features mainly. More expensive motherboards usually have better, cleaner power delivery to the CPU. Better components generally means more overclocking potential.

I see, thanks. I think its crazy hard to choose between these things. I mean, I paid around 150-200$ my current board, and I've never had problems with missing features and I think it OC´ed alright to be fair.And I'm not that big a overclocker to justify paying 200$ more for a board, to squeeze out 1-200 Mhz more.

Some of the reasons for the much higher costs of X99 are

CPU´s with 6/8 and even 10 cores on X99 vs only 4 on Z170
Quad channel memory on X99 vs dual channel memory on Z170 and also higher amounts of total RAM allowed
28/40 PCI-E lanes on X99 vs 16 PCI-E lanes on Z170 which means support for more then two video cards and/or PCI-E / M.2 / U.2 based SSD´s

All of the reasons above are why X99 boards cost so much more
More features means a higher price and even more features on X99 means even higher cost

There is nothing wrong with buying a cheap board if you dont have high demans or much to spend
But if you do want more features and better quality then sory you are going to have to pay more

Again there is no need to go out and buy the most expensive board you can find
But if you want more features you are looking at a much higher price range then 800 kr.

Thanks for explaining it.
I won't need to sli. I'm not interested in participating in that horrible lottery that sli currently is.
I can't see that I would need quad channel memory, since everything above 16 gigs, for my need at least, is hugely overkill.
I can definitely see the advantages in more cores, I just don't know if 4 is more than enough for streaming and gaming.

Then you dont need to upgrade your CPU motherboard and RAM and you might as well keep your old CPU motherboard and RAM
Looking at the system under your sig i would say what you should upgrade is the PSU as its 9 years old and the CPU cooler as its really not that good of a cooler nor is it very quiet

If you feel the 290 is too slow and not enough you could upgrade the video card as well
Upgrading the CPU motherboard and RAM will not give you very much benefit when it comes to gaming.

But shouldn't I consider upgrading the CPU, when some games causes a 100% load?
