800$ Upgrade

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I have a little over 800$ to upgrade my pc all I want to upgrade is my CPU, Motherboard, and Ram.

I obviously would like an i7 cpu but the chipset, still unknown. I need help with this because I have been thinking about this for a while. I plan on gaming, recording videos, streaming, video editing and rendering, and 3d animation and modeling.

You live by a Fry's or microcenter? Their current 5820k prices are $319

 

with a ~$200-$300 motherboard + $100-$150 ram, you're looking at ~$700-800 after tax.

 

For $800, i don't think you can get much better than that, considering current skylake i7 prices

 

 

This is exactly what I just bought this weekend.

 

5820k - $319

Corsair DDR4 2666 16GB (2x8) - $89

MSI X99A Gaming7 - $250

 

totaled about $700

 

You could put in another 16GB of memory, for quadchannel 32GB to round out your $800 budget.
