2011-3 broadwell-e or 1151 skylake?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Well the winter months will be here soon after my doing open house for my kids tells me i have to prepare getting ready for a new build. So here is my issue. I'm looking for a computer that will:

1.Gaming 1080p
2.Stream for twitch.tv 1080p
3. Content Creation |Graphic Design|video editing 1080p
4. VR - Mostly for my 7 year old son. He has Williams Syndrome so i was hoping that may give him an edge in helping his eye hand coordination.

I will be making a build from scratch.
Slight overclocking 24/7

I'm not sure if i would want to go for SLI either because from what i'm told if i even go Skylake i still won't have full x16 x16 performance.

Any input would be much appreciated

Please consider I don't even know if i would have to consider a stronger power supply with the 2011-3 or would i be alright with RM750i if i when that route.....

Going by all you said a Z170 sounds like the better platform to go with

And you dont need a 750 watt PSU for a system that only has one video card
You said you had a PSU already if its a good one and it can do more then 450 watts you dont need to buy a new one.

You would have right be doing a considerable amount of video editing and encoding to make the X99 platform worth your while. You also don't need 32 PCI-e lanes for SLI. I personally wouldn't want to run SLI anyway. It's only really useful for 4K gaming and you've stated you're going to game at 1080p.

Decide between an i7-6700K and i7-5820K and go from there. The X99 system wouldn't cost too much more, but Z170 will give you everything you need. If you're worried about streaming with fewer cores, you can use Quick Sync to take some of the load off the i7-6700K and make use of the integrated GPU. You don't have that option with X99, but you also have more processing power overall. I don't think there is a wrong decision here.

4 core Skylake with slower ram beats 6 core Haswell with faster ram in SLI, but 6 core Broadwell might be different.

I would say 6700k on Z170 is where you want to be. X99 stuff is probably overkill for what you plan to build and do. IIRC 16x16 vs 8x8 on SLI doesn't yield much FPS loss or gain in any specific way.

A big system with i7 and SLI as said previously probably doesn't need 750 watts. Reviews from PCs using these newer 1080/1070 cards are only pulling 400ish watt maximums as a total system draw. Depends on your exact plans but a solid 600 Watt will probably handle even 1080 SLI.
