5820k > 6700k in most cases exept single core performance :o

 

Single core is what it's about unless you're doing a bunch of video editing.

GG on that video editing.

 

Anyone who uses pcpartpicker could easily make something better for the same $ though.


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

4790K FTW! i also have a EVGA gtx 960 4gb SSC

 

my system its close to perfection, now i am saving for a intel 750 series SSD to add up to my shitty 1tb hard drives.

and maybe another 8gb stick to add up to 16gb.

Hey Guys, the writing on the video about :
Cooler Master 350 should be US$60+$11.21 Shipping NOT $46
EVGA 960 SSC 2GB minimum US$189 NOT $46

Amazingly, your bottom line is more or less correct. Who is editing this video ? Who calculate it ? Why is Linus's Script flawed

Did your guy who did the pricing just copy / paste $46 into everything in the first PC or is there some sort of joke about PC parts all being $46 in the US?

 

The motherboard is close at $47.99, the the case is almost close at $62.16 and the graphics card isn't even close at $169.99.

 

 

Funny thing is, the total actually went off the real prices, you just didn't say or show them.

As displayed: 70+46+37+46+46+70=$315

As actual: 70+48+37+62+170+70=$457 (Which is real close to the $453 you put as the hardware price).

Not sure why the GTX 960 suggestion when you get a r9 380 for the same price, and better performance...

 

Also, for the 1k build, 390, and 290x are also viable choices.

 

For 2k build, if this is "just for gaming", 6700k would have been the better choice, better single threaded performance than the 5820k, also 32gb of ram is overkill for gaming, could just be left with 16gb, and save the money for a m.2 storage drive.
