Upgrading my "old" i7-6700k pc :)


Hi guys! 

Thanks for taking the time to help me out a bit :) I do have a deeper understanding of computers, been handling them ever since Windows 3.1. But I'm nowhere near an expert as it just changes so darn quickly these days..
I'm a streamer with currently 300 something followers, but I see my pc maxing out sometimes. After overclocking my i7-6700k to the safest max I've gained some room, but still.. It's not perfect. More details down below!

Budget (including currency): €2000

Country: Netherlands

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 

  • OBS Live 
    • Greenscreening and transitions are the worst part right now
  • Canon EOS software
  • Minecraft (Client only, server running in the cloud) with at least optifine and a texture pack
  • Beat Saber (VR) on Oculus rift (CV1) with 3 sensors
  • Spotify
  • Chrome (gotta need that RAM) 
  • Chatty (IRC style chat for Twitch)
  • Photoshop
  • Adobe Premiere Pro
  • Adobe After Effects
  • Discord

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I'm currently rocking a solid pc for a couple of years now, but it's giving me a liiiittle bit of struggle. 
CPU: i7-6700k (Overclocked to 4.6Mhz)

GPU:  Inno3D GeForce GTX 1080 Ti ICHILL X3 Ultra

RAM x2: Kingston Technology HyperX FURY 16GB 2133MHz (Total of 32GB)

MOBO: Asrock Fatal1ty H170 Performance <---- Biggest mistake tbh

PSU: Antec 0-761345-05075-3 power supply unit (750 Watt)

SSD x2: Samsung 250GB 850 EVO (One for Windows, One for VR games)

Storage: Toshiba X300 5TB (Just general storage)

Case: NZXT H500i Midi-Tower - weiß Window (Love love love this case!)

AIO Cooler: NZXT Kraken X62 (Thinking about the new Z serie with display)


As a streamer (even a small one) I am rocking a poop ton of external hardware so I absolutely need my USB ports. 

Sound: Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 with XLR Rode Podcast microphone

Sound 2: Logitech G933 headset

Camera: Canon EOS D7 through USB (No canon cam link yet.. )

Screen x2: DELL Professional P2416D 23.75" (yeah yeah I know, low fps but it makes up in the 2k format for me..) (I am open to suggestions outside of the build)

VR: 3x Rift external sensor

VR: Oculus rift CV1

Keyboard: G. Skill Ripjaw RGB Mechanical

Mouse: Logitech G502

Extra: Fingerprint reader for easy login

Extra: Xbox wireless dongle


So already with a usb 3.0 hub i'm rocking a solid 11 usb ports. That is without any usb stick or external HDD

Probably just get a 3900X + 32GBs of 3200mhz CL16 RAM, and maybe some X570 board


total is like under $1000 for that stuff


no need to upgrade the GPU if you have a 1080ti

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...



What is your budget/country for your new PC?


what monitor resolution/refresh rate?


What games or other software do you need to run?
