  1. I built a pc to my sister and it has only Rasdeon HD 6950 and core 2 quad 9400. Both of those GPU:s are a huge upgrade.
  2. My basic reason why i need a new keyboard is because mine is simply worse. Mouse would be also nice but i have logitech g502 and i think it's going to be good enough.
  3. Can i get the answer for the question i answered. Wich mobo should i get. (:
  4. i7 5960x is the i7 version of the e5-1660 v3. And btw all E5-16xx Vx cpu:s are unlocked (i own e5-1620 and it is unlocked)
  5. Also good overclocking would be nice because that cpu is unlocked.
  6. I'm going to get a Xeon E5-1660 V3 and i have few options for mobo. Asrock Fatal1ty X99X Killer (246€), MSI X99A Mpower (252€), MSI X99A Gaming 7 (264€) or Asrock Fatal1ty X99X Killer USB 3.1 (270€). My requirements for mobo are ATX form factor, DR. Debug, red/black/(yellow) theme and a good mic output. My absolute max budget is 270€.
  7. Also Xeon E5-16xx v3 CPU:s are unlocked so you can overclock E5-1620 v3. For me that would be easy choice.
  8. I would go with Xeon because it is a bit more powerful than i7. Remember that you need a mobo that supports Xeons so it needs a C-starting chipset. Luckily there are new ones from Asrock and Asus. I5 is not a choice. I have i5 6600k oc:d to 4.5 Ghz and it is horrible experience to do video editing. Luckily i'm upgrading to Xeon E5-1660 v3.
  9. Quad core with HT is not enough for me because i multitask a lot. Also i need 40 PCIE lanes because i'll get two more furys in future and i also use pcie wifi. I need min. 6 core with HT but best is 8 and above.
  10. There is no option for E5-2650 nor E5-2660 v3 (that i would buy over any of these)
  11. I mainly play on my PC but also stream, do video editing and 3D rendering. Wich one of these xeons is the best choice? Please don't say that get an i7 5820k and oc. So choices are E5-2650 v3 for 280€, E5-2676 v3 for 320€, E5-2670 v3 for 360€, E5-2683 v3 for 370€ or E5-2667 v3 for 400€? My absolute max budget is 400€ but i would like to go under 350€. My main requirement is good gaming experience. BTW my gpu is R9 Fury. I can't find much gaming benchmark scores for these CPU:s so if you know any (not game debate) tell me. (:
  12. I have only one 250gb ssd and two crappy 5200 rpm hard drives. And my ssd is full and i don't want to put anything to hard drives because it takes ages to load anything from there.
  13. Try changing the post FX value in the settings from ultra to very high or if you have very high turn it to ultra. That setting sometimes causes random low fps and maybe low gpu usage.
