Help with choice. Upgrading PC

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello,
I've got dilemma with some choice.
So i have choice to buy
GTX 1070 or 1080 <<<<<<<<<<<<< Asus Astrix or MSI ? and why? please
CPU 6600k or 6700k?

I've got money for both setups, but i was thinking if its worth to spend money as I'm using only FHD monitor...and not planning to change monitor in near future

I'll leave my buy list, as well advice me motherboard and rams if its good choice.

Neither the 1070 or 1080 are worth it to me so I won't comment there (Nvidia shareholders, CEO and managers disagree with me of course and thank everyone for their purchase).

 

The 6600K is a quad core, the 6700K is a quad core with HT so unless you need the extra cores due to multi tasking you are better off getting a 6600K.

I agree with Liranan in that you should hold off on your purchase for a little while. The new 10 series cards are pretty awesome but supply and demand problems are jumping the price up far too high as almost all retailers are out stock (as you probably have noticed) and await the next shipment. I suggest you wait until the market for them stabilizes a bit unless you simply don't mind paying extra.

In order to determine the best components to buy you need to describe what you intend on using the system for. If you want to use it as a gaming system then a 6600K is a good value and the money saved versus the 6700K could go towards the 1080 instead. I am currently in the market for a similar setup myself and I feel a 6600K overclocked and a 1070 would be enough. However that 1080 is mighty tempting if prices are more reasonable.

At what resolution? if you are going to play at 4k get a 1080, if you are going to play at 1440p or 1080p get a 1070.

About the processor well... I've owned i5 and i7 in all generations and I can say that I would never trade my i7 for a i5 if I have the money to spend on a i7, many will say the difference is minimal but yeah... I can notice that difference, especially on MMO or Cpu bound games that put good use of the HT on the i7.

Sry I thought you might upgrade on the future to a different resolution. Anyway if that is the case I would recommend you an i7 and a 1070, usually in MMOS you will find them cpu bounded, maybe not that much in shooters but if they have big cities with many characters like in World of Warcraft or similar you might find out that the i7 is better in those particular kind of games. You will be kind of future proofing if you choose an i7 that is for sure. Hope it helps!
