Building a new PC, need help with my dilemma

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello everyone!


So I will be building a new PC (been playing on PlayStation for quite a while, screw that I am coming home).

I will be building it around March, becuase I really want to take my time, I love this planning part! :)


This is my 'default setup' http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/sv7HrH 


So the question is;


Corsair 16GB 1866-2400 DDR3 RAM
EVGA Nvidia GTX 980 (future two-way SLI upgrade)
Corsair 16GB 2400 DDR4 RAM
EVGA Nvidia GTX 980 (future two-way SLI upgrade)
Future plans: as mentioned, I will get another GTX 980 and run them in two way SLI mode, in voth cases AND I will get a 4k display later next year and start playing dem games in 4k (I will also get the other GTX 980)
So I know that the first option is more than enough for gaming right now, but with the second being the next evolutionary step, with ddr4 and the entry level 6-core, I will have to upgrade sooner or later.
Also, if you have anything to say about separate parts, I will be happy to hear it! ;)
Thank you guys

Please wait till February before deciding specs for your PC you plan to buy in March... it is much too soon as prices may rise/ drop or newer better hardware maybe released.

Should state what it's being used for. If just for gaming, the bottom one is probably a bit overkill, although since it's a fair price maybe not.


As for the top one, i say go with 1600 or 1866 ram, cause there really isnt a big difference in it really.

Main PC

AMD Ryzen 7 3700x | ASUS ROG Strix X570-E Gaming | G.Skill Trident Z Neo 32 GB 3600 | Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super Aorus Waterforce | Fractal Design Define R6 Blackout

Corsair HX850i Power Supply | Fractal Design Celsius S36 AiO Cooler

Wow Linus wasn't kidding, this is a great forum! :)))


Well I will use it 99% gaming, 1% working xD


Exactly! The i7-5820k is about 50GBP more expensive, so I might as well just get it.

I don't think it's an overkill for gaming... I mean BF4 is the only one benefiting from more cores and faster RAM, but with those crazy games like The Witcher 3 in 2015 that is going to change! And with time, games will start taking advantage of them. Recommended specs for pretty much all AAA games state 'quad-core'. 


What do you guys think about the rest?

I am a bit unsure about the case, Cosmos SE didn't exactly get best reviews, but I just LOVE IT! Looks so killer! :D
