Hey guys!

So I already have a case (HAF-X) Power Supply (850 watt Corsair modular) Cooler etc. All the parts I neeed are below:

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/jTpmBm

Intel Core i7-5820K 3.3GHz 6-Core Processor
$373.95 $373.95 SuperBiiz

MSI X99S SLI Plus ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard
$194.99 FREE $194.99 Newegg

G.Skill Ripjaws 4 series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4-2666 Memory
$249.99 FREE $249.99 Newegg

Crucial M500 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive
$203.78 FREE $203.78 NCIX US

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 4GB Superclocked ACX 2.0 Video Card
$349.99 -$10.00 FREE $339.99 Newegg

I will get the SSD/CPU/Mobo from Microcenter ( I have one near me) so the cost will be a bit cheaper.

Any thoughts on what I may want to change? My budget is around $1k-$1200 or so.

Thanks!

It looks pretty healthy at first glance. Is this going to be a primarily gaming computer and if so, at what resolution?

Mostly gaming. Eventually I would like to move to 4K but that will not be till my current monitor dies. I have a BenQ T24IW.

Crucial seemed to have great bang for the buck, especially @ $169 in Microcenter for 480 GB. Any reasons why Crucial would be a bad choice?

Thanks!

I'm not 100% when I will move to 4K. I am thinking it will be 3-4 years before I do that. I will most likely start at 1920 x 1200 until this monitor dies, then I may go 27" at 2560 x 1440. I think 4K will take a while before monitors become reasonably affordable

Man, I don't think I've ever had a monitor die on me. I've retired them, but die, if it makes it past that first 3 - 6 months then it's likely going to last a long, long time. Hell, not too long ago I tossed out a old Dell 17" 1024x768 that I had for something like 10 years to free up some space.

*2560x1440 is more res then 4k. It would also be more expensive then buying a single 4k monitor.

Talking about triple screen. Not sure what happened there.

Thanks guys! I wanted to go DDR4 since I will be keeping this rig for at least 5 years. How much of a performance boost will I see with a 9+0 and 5820k?

There is no AMD equivalent to the 5820

I'd suggest a 8310/8320e for $110 and overclock on budget. For pure power go intel

2011-v3 is currently a very viable socket in the long run as the currently available motherboards should support newer CPUs with only a BIOS update.
DDR4 can also be found at the current DDR3 prices, which is good enough for a transition.

And yes, there is no AMD alternative to this setup as of now.

Have you had your morning coffee?

He is talking about one 16:9 2560x1440 monitor, which is about 45% of the resolution of a 4k display.

How is 2560x1440 higher rez than 4k (3840x2160)?

I was talking about 3 x 2560x1440 (triple screen).

Not sure what happened there. Might of been a case of getting posts mixed up, which happens sometimes if I have a few I'm involved in.
