So I saw a deal for a 980x on eBay, and I was wondering if a 5600 xt would cause a bottleneck, and if so, I am open to suggestions for new gpu’s

It would have to be a hell of a deal for it to be superior to a Xeon X5670. What's it gonna run you?

 

As for bottleneck, it depends entirely on the game and  performance target


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

980X at 4.4ghz will feed a 5600XT but i would go no higher in spec for a GPU unless you game at 1440P+

I7 980x is a good CPU but not one I necessarily reccomend.

 

If you already have a motherboard (or find one under $50) then X58 is good. However, as the person above said a X5670 is just as good once overclocked and far cheaper. Even a X5650 on a good board offers amazing performance.

If you are going to overclock it (like, 4.2+ GHz) then the bottlenecking will be limited. It'll be OK at 1080p but becomes less of a bottleneck at higher resolutions.

 

If you are NOT going to overclock it heavily, pass on it. Stock performance is atrocious by modern standards.

 

Same goes for the Xeons mentioned above. The i7-980x is far easier to overclock but that's about the only material difference. Both are overclockable to just as high of GHz, just depends how much effort you want to put in.

Yes I do plan to oc and probably game at 1080p

Also I will check out the xeons mentioned

If you are overclocking, like you mentioned, then that's the best route. Those things overclock like mad, I believe the X5675 is one of the best.

And just to make sure does it support buffered or unbuffered ram?

Depends on the motherboard

X5675 is (on average) the best bin for the price. Though most of these chips will do 4.2-4.5, just worse bins take more voltage to do so. The Westmere-EP chips also have better IMCs than the i7s AFAIK. Certainly better than the quad cores.

For X58, unbuffered should work same as with any other system. For buffered/registered you'd need 5520. Only 5520 board I know of that can OC is the EVGA SR-2.
