I am building a gaming rig should i go with a 5820 and overclock it or go 6700k and overclock it slightly. Assuming no price variations on either choices.

The 5820k is the superior CPU in terms of performance and features unless you need integrated graphics for some reason.

Intel Core i7 4770k - 2x Geforce GTX 780 - MSI Z87 MPower Max - Corsair H60 - 8GB Avexir Core Series MPower Yellow + 4gb no-brand DDR3 - Corsair Obsidian 750d - AData XPG SX900 256gb SSD - Seagate Barracuda 3TB (7200 RPM) - Hitachi 250GB 2.5in HDD (3200 RPM) - WD HDD 160GB extracted from iMac via black magic (no specified RPM) - ASUS VG248QE 144HZ 3d Vision Monitor - Logitech G602 - Ducky Shine 3 TKL - AKG 172 HD Headphones - Xperia z2 - Sony Noise canceling earphones -  Nikon D5200 With Bundled Lenses - Windows 7 Home Premium - Blue Snowball iCE - Acer Aspire X with a broken case, AMD A6, and Raijintek Aidos CPU heatsink

Assuming you are unwilling to overclock and use a single gpu in today's games: 6700k

Assuming you are willing to overclock and use a single GPU in today's games: 6700k

Assuming you are willing to overclock and use two or more gpu's in ANY games: 5820k

Assuming you are willing to overclock and use a single GPU in future games: Likely 5820k.

They trade blows depending on the game. Some prefer more cores and some prefer high performance ona single core. I have a 6700k because arma 3 is single threaded and the enterprise CPU memory architecture is a problem in that one game but generally it's not going to make much difference for gaming.

i am getting a 980 ti ftw so need for the integrated, and planning on adding an additional card down the line i guess than 5820 is my best bet. Thanks Everyone.

Run at stock speeds -> 6700k

Wiling to overclock -> 5820k

Long-term better -> 5820k

 

If you plan on running two gpus in the future (2 or 3 years from now) than get the 5930k.

Huge delta between 5820k and 5930k. btw what do u guys think of nvme m.2 for this build??

Idk, if you think the performance bump over a standard SSD is worth the price premium.. Then yes. 

I myself am happy enough with my 850 Evo and wouldn't benefit much from the speed increase.

5820K

 

Should there even be any second thoughts?, its literally the same architecture as the 6700k + 2C/4T

No, no its not.

 

It's the same architecture as the 4790k + 2c/4t.

Haswell-E is a different architecture, it is newer than the Haswell Refresh, with some refinements and additions, memory controller, cpu extensions etc

 

dont forget it has more L2 cache per core, aswell as more L3 overall

This: 

 

To be fair, I run a 5820k, but use it for media production. It runs 3.3GHz stock and I have it stable (AVX stable) at 4.4GHz. 

If all you're doing is gaming, save yourself a little money and go with the 6700k.

If what I'm posting has already been posted, I'm sorry.

Alright guys. Pack up your shit, this guy is the boss. 6700k is haswell-E now. Whatever you say, boss. Thank you for correcting my obviously correct statement and contradicting yourself in the process while still believing you're correct.

Your an idiot if you think multi-threading isn't going to be even more utilized in the future (Like those single thread theorists)

a 6700k vs a 5820k, both at 4Ghz = Same per core gaming performance (there is no significant jump in architectural optimisations, so a 6700k isnt faster)

6700k and 5820k are NOT the same god damn architecture.

6700k haz slightly faster single core performance at the same clock speed.

I love it. You've contradicted yourself. I'm fucking done.

4790k @4ghz single core = 5820k @4ghz single core

 

And this is only a generally correct statement, because you still have to take into account cache.
