New Build Planning

It's been awhile since I've had a decent PC so I thought I'd jump right back in.

 

$5000-6000 as far as budget goes, over in Australia so shit can be expensive here to begin with.

 

So far this is what I have looked at in terms of a build.

 

 

CPU - i7 5820k

Cooler - Thermaltake Water 3.0 Ultimate - with 3 Noctua NF-F12 Industrial 2000RPM PWN Fans

Motherboard - MSI X99S Gaming 9

Memory - 32GB G.Skill DDR4

Storage - 4x 256GB Crucial MX100 SSDs

GPU - GIgabyte GTX980 G1 Gaming

Power Supply - Corsair AX760i

Case - Corsair Graphite 760T

 

Keyboard - Corsair K95

Mouse - Corsair M65

Headset - Sennheisser G4ME ZERO

 

Monitor - AOC U3477PQU 34inch Ultrawide

 

This would roughly be $5500 for where I am.

 

The other option I have looked at is going with a 4790k instead.

With the 4790k I can get 2x GTX980s and a 4K monitor for the same pricing.

 

Any thoughts are welcome.

Thank You

Mainly gaming, but also video editing and some photography work.

Go with the 4790K, MSI Gaming 5 motherboard, 16GB DDR3 (1600/1866MHz is fine) 

 

The performance gain from X99 isn't enough to justify the price in your case. It's only really worth it if you're going to be doing a lot of heavy editing and such that needs the extra cores. Whether you just keep the money you save or spend it on another GPU or something is up to you.

So something like this would be the finished build. With possibly a second gpu to help run the monitor.

Or a single card with this monitor is the other option.

That would be alright. Though the parts you mentioned would cost me around $3300. As stated in my first post I'm in Australia. So things like Newegg, NCIX, Amazon, etc. are not viable options for me.

 

It sucks not being able to get them for cheaper prices, as even the cheapest reference 970 here costs $420.
