Looking for a computer build.

Incredaboy59

Jump to post #11 for my new/final feelings on what build i want thanks.

 

 

 

 

So im looking for a computer build. At first I was just looking at anything but the more I watch videos the more I read stuff here and there, its a bit difficult and can be expensive when choosing with what you see. My current PC which I just bought 3 years ago is: i7-3770 @ 3.40GHz, GeForce GTX 660 with 32 GB of RAM. I want to hand this PC down to my little brother and the $600 pc he has (which was my 1st build ever) i plan on giving it to my nephew. 

 

I game most of the time and do your avg. normal everyday desktop stuff with some MSword and MSexcel but plan on streaming and doing some video editing in the near future for online gaming/mmo's. I dont see myself doing a tripple monitor set up anytime soon but I will a 2nd monitor on the side for when multi-tasking or when i want to throw on my ps4 on the side.

 

The things I am intrested and would like in my build are:

 

-i5 6600k   or

-i7 6700k

- Intel SSD 750 series 400GB PCI Express Gen3 x4 (SSD that I can add to my MOBO)

-Corsair 780T white with white/blue set up

-Corsair 780T Black with black/red set up

-maybe 16GB of ram now and probably add more when I start streaming/editing

-ASUS ROG SWIFTpg279q (but currently sold out everywhere)  2560x1440p

-Single or sli GTX 980 ti or single Titan X now with an option of adding a 2nd one later for SLI.

-Budget is 4000

 

 

Plan on running on 2k (1440p) for awhile until there is more 4k content out there then will teak stuff here and there to be able to run 4k aswell save up for a 4k monitor.

 

At the moment the research I have been doing those pretty much what I care for at the moment. Not sure if I just want to overclock something and pay a little less for the CPU. If anyone think they have a build with the stuff I added or suggestions i'll appreciate it thanks :)

 

1. Budget & Location
USA/$4000.00
2. Aim
Web browsing,MSword/MSexcel, main will be video games and when I start my next MMO i plan on streaming and doing some video editing (nothing too crazy on the editing part). Main games i play/played are Total war series, Dota 2, LOL, CS:GO, different MMO's.

3. Monitors
ASUS ROG SWIFTpg279q 2560x1440p will be my main monitor but plan on adding a 2nd later to maybe watch a movie or anime while im playing a games.Also 2nd monitor i'll add my ps4 on to it.

4. Peripherals
Only 1 monitor now with a 2nd one later just to have something on the side as well to play my ps4 on there.

5. Why are you upgrading?
My current PC i7-3770 @ 3.40GHz, GeForce GTX 660 with 32 GB of RAM which is 3 years old and bought it prebuilt like that I plan on giving it to my little brother and my brothers pc (which was my 1st build ever 600) is going to my nephew and so the new build im going to do is for myself.

 

 

Thank you in advance for your builds/suggestions. I do plan on building this system within the next 2 weeks or so. Could be quicker but the thing is that there are many different types of build that ive yet to finalize on what items i will need.

Budget max would be $4000 US. including the monitor. Would appreciate the cost to be as low as possible but parts will need to handle/run the system good.

I tried to make the theme black and white, tuxedo like, apparently it's very difficult to find parts or I am not looking well enough, the RAM is Silver, which isn't exactly white, same with the GPU, the PSU is actually the Corsair 750/850 RMI, not the RM.

I don't know how much benefit you will get by using the 750 PCI-E SDD, you rater buy a Samsung 850Pro 1TB, for storage space and the performance are going to be enough for that kind of build. If you'd like to spend a litte bit less, i Would Swap the 5930k with a 5820k, the 28 PCI-E Lines will support a 2-SLI in 1vga 16x and 1vga 8x + 4x for The Intel SSD if you like

Edit: added 1TB SSD. Because why not, the budget is a bit overkill.

The little research ive done i heard/read that the PCI-E SSD would run a little faster then the ssd. Not exactly sure how much faster but that was one reason why I added that.

 

Question: If I wanted to go with a water cooling system could I do in the corsair 780t?

Ok think I have had a change of heart. As I look at more and more stuff.....the build I want but is not fully ready is high end so i will have to take it down a notch and start over.

 

1. Budget & Location
$3000 or less. USA-CA


2. Aim
Web browsing,MSword/MSexcel, main will be video games and when I start my next MMO i plan on mostly streaming and maybe some video editing (nothing too crazy on the editing part just some simple/basic stuff). Main games i play/played are Total war series, Dota 2, LOL, CS:GO, different MMO's. Game @ 2560x1440p very easy at ultra or high settings.

3. Monitors
ASUS ROG SWIFTpg279q 2560x1440p will be my main monitor but plan on adding a 2nd monitor or just a decent tv later to maybe watch a movie or anime while im playing a games.Also 2nd monitor or t.v i'll play my ps4 on to it and put a movie or anime or watch a twitch on my 1440p monitor.

4. Peripherals
Only 1 monitor now (ASUS ROG SWIFTpg279q 2560x1440p)($800 value) with a 2nd monitor or t.v. later just to have something on the side as well to play my ps4 on there. Budget of 3000 or less includes only monitor this time, and everything else (you suggest/build) will allow me to game @ 2560x1440p if not at ultra then high settings.


5. Why are you upgrading?
My current PC i7-3770 @ 3.40GHz, GeForce GTX 660 with 32 GB of RAM which is 3 years old and bought it prebuilt like that I plan on giving it to my little brother and my brothers pc (which was my 1st build ever $600) is going to my nephew and so the new build im going to do is for myself.

 

 

Thank you in advance for your builds/suggestions. I do plan on building this system within the next 2 weeks or so. Could be quicker but the thing is that there are many different types of build that ive yet to finalize on what items i will need.\

 

Can be a skylake build or regular build or an overclocked build

 

This Build will eventually go to my little brother and in the future I will do my personal high end build with 3 monitor setup and SLI GPUs.

I am not changing a lot actually. I know it's over 3K but just remove one 980Ti. If you want the most now, you will be better of with two 390s. For streaming, look on how to enable hardware encoding in OBS. QuickSync for Intel's iGPU.

Found this video 

 

 

Anyone else that may have their own build in mind for what I want please feel free to post it as I will compare them and see which one I like and will use.

According to this thread on OBS forums, it is preffered to use QuickSync over NVENC (aka shadowplay). Will look into AMD VCE in a bit.

 

EDIT:

after some more research, I can safely say that AMD's VCE is better than bot QuickSync and NVENC. This makes the quality go like this: CPU>VCE>QS>NVENC. But expect CPU encoding to be too taxing to be worth going for x99 8-core. Skylake is after all faster core to core, clock to clock and overclocks better.
