What's the most reasonable CPU to purchase on GTX Titan

Hello,

 

I'm building a secondary gaming PC for my wife, so I do not want to spend too much money on it. I've been researching all day, but I'd love to hear some opinions on my purchases:

From my friend, I've got ASUS GTX Titan 6GD5 (https://www.asus.com/us/Graphics-Cards/GTXTITAN6GD5/) and 16gb DDR3 2400Mhz (https://www.amazon.com/d/Computer-Memory/G-Skill-PC3-19200-TridentX-10-12-12-31-F3-2400C10D-16GTX/B0080FFZ8E/ref=sr_1_fkmr1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1545456328&sr=8-2-fkmr1&keywords=jigsaw+trident+x+ddr3+2400).

What would be the most reasonable build (CPU+MOBO) for this GPU and RAM? I was thinking about getting Ryzen bundle, but it doesn't support DDR3.

 

Since I have 1080ti gaming computer as my primary, I do not wish to spend too much money on it. I want to spend the LEAST amount of money by purchasing used components but make the best use of GTX Titan and the DDR3.

Any idea? I think i7 4790k build is too pricey for my budget. Maybe FX8350? I don't know. Would you throw some opinions on the purchases?

 

Thank you in advances!

With a $100-$150 motherboard you should be good to go, and have a solid system.

A B85 board is pretty cheap if you don't want to overclock although I feel Z87 would be better for that CPU.

Please no

 

Either i7 4770 and B85 board from eBay or i7 3770k and Z77 board, also eBay. Make sure you have a beefy power supply as well, that Titan doesn't exactly sip power.

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad
