Improve my PcPartPicker List!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm a bit of a noob to this forum - despite watching LMG videos for the last year.

 

Here is my PcPartPicker list - I dont want to spend any more than I already am and it will be used for light-medium video editing and 3D modelling in 3DS Max and Maya. Gaming is not the intended use, but I can't help myself from a little of it.

 

I would be grateful if people could have a look at the list and recommend better products for it.  - Thanks!

Thanks, I've got rid of the thermal compound and upgraded to the 840 evo.

How important is it to get the evga psu? It's an extra £40

Do you plan on overclocking the cpu ? If not I would suggest a Xeon cpu.

I heard of somebody getting 6GHz on the 4790k - not that the cooler is anywhere near that level so I think I should be able to get about 4.5GHz. I don't *need* to overclock - 4GHz is plenty for vegas 13.

I had a look at Xeon E3's and was surprised - I always thought that they were far out of budget but they're actually around the same price. Given that the specifications are the same - only with a lower clock will a Xeon be a noticably more powerful processor?

I think 6GHz is probably with extreme overclocking ala 8pack style. 

 

The Xeon is basically equivalent to a locked i7. I think you can get a slight overclock on it, but obviously not as much as you would with a 'k' cpu.

 

It is pretty good value for money though, as it is priced not much more than an i5. You don't get onboard graphics, but as you have a dedicated graphics card that isn't really an issue.

 

This has Hyperthreading just like the i7 and is nearly £60 cheaper. It will boost to 3.7GHz in turbo mode -  http://uk.pcpartpicker.com/part/intel-cpu-bx80646e31230v3

 

If you want to overclock, and can fit the i7 4790K in your budget then go with that. If not then the Xeon is a good alternative
