  1. I'd go with an Asus X99-A/U3.1 and the i7 5820K, can recommend them myself. You will benefit from the two extra cores in almost all productive software.
  2. I don't think the Z170-AR exists, it's not even listed on the ASUS website.. There was a Z97-AR where the only difference to the Z97-A was the color scheme. Could be an error on the PC part picker site.

  4. Yeah, it's wierd. I'm not sure about the taxes, but I think if I buy something from the Netherlands I need to pay taxes aswell.. Maybe do a quick google search.
  5. The german Alternate site offers this pre-build machine. https://www.alternate.de/ALTERNATE/Gamescom-2K15-PC-W10-64-PC-System/html/product/1214408?tk=8&lk=6706

    Acer vs Asus

    That may be true for their low-end products, but they do have very good high-end stuff. I can't complain about my Acer S7-392 ultrabook and XB270HU at all.
  7. Yes, with the X79 boards you're only able to use socket 2011 CPUs like the 4930k. It will hold up fine for a few years.
  8. What's the motherboard you bought? Running SLI will give you about 80% more performance if the game has good sli support, with bad support about 40% more and if the game has no SLI-support at all, you'll be getting the performance of a single card, obviously.
  9. With only one 980Ti you won't get 60fps in some games on ultra details + AA. If you want to replicate the buildlog Linus did, only with up to date components, it'll look something like this: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i7-5930K 3.5GHz 6-Core Processor ($499.99 @ Micro Center) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Nepton 280L 122.5 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($94.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: Asus X99-DELUXE ATX LGA2011-3 Motherboard ($439.99 @ Mwave) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) DDR4-2400 Memory ($244.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Intel 730 Series 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($238.89 @ Amazon) Storage: Intel 730 Series 480GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($238.89 @ Amazon) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($689.97 @ B&H) Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card (2-Way SLI) ($689.97 @ B&H) Case: Corsair 760T White ATX Full Tower Case ($149.99 @ Micro Center) Power Supply: Cooler Master V850 850W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply ($163.98 @ Newegg) Total: $3451.65 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2015-07-28 11:54 EDT-0400 But this would be expensive due to X99, DDR4 and SLI, and as previously mentioned, you could look into something like this, which is more than half the price: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant CPU: Intel Core i5-4690K 3.5GHz Quad-Core Processor ($199.99 @ Micro Center) CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Nepton 240M 76.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($99.99 @ Newegg) Motherboard: Asus Z97-AR ATX LGA1150 Motherboard ($149.99 @ Micro Center) Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($80.99 @ Newegg) Storage: Samsung 850 EVO-Series 500GB 2.5" Solid State Drive ($177.89 @ OutletPC) Storage: Seagate Barracuda 3TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($74.99 @ Newegg) Video Card: MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti 6GB Video Card ($679.95 @ Amazon) Case: Corsair 750D ATX Full Tower Case ($129.99 @ Micro Center) Power Supply: Cooler Master VSM 750W 80+ Gold Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply ($80.98 @ Newegg) Total: $1674.76 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2015-07-28 12:14 EDT-0400
