Updating system

 Share

Hi all

I am looking to update my system on three parts cpu ram and motherboard cpu and ram are about 5 years old

What I have now is 

16gb ram

Corei7 I do believe it is a 4700k I will get the exact specs later

 

 

Here is some parts that I will be putting in it

Gtx1060 pci-e x16

Soundblaster audio card pci-e x1

10gb nic pci-e x8 please note that I do edit and program off a server and that's why I need th 10gb nic 

 

Possibly going to be in the system 

2nd gtx1060 this would be to get up to 8 monitors on the go

Usb 3.0 card for my htc vive or the wireless adapter if I get that

 

 

Also what I plan to use it for

- gaming 

- blender 

-unreal engine 

-video production 

-programming 

- docker programming 

 

I would like to keep this under 1000$ cad

And I want at least 16-32 GB of ram

Any suggestions

get another 16 gigs of ddr3, maybe a 4770k or 4790k

have you looked into the vega linup and 1070 ti?

I would get something like the schiit magni and modi as it will give better audio then a sound card.

See part of the problem is that the motherboard is kinda bent due to an issue with the case aka slightly longer stand off and PCI cards don't fit in the last two slots also if I use one of the pci-e slots it locks out two others no matter what type of pci-e card I use in it

32GB memory, no need for a sound card, onboard 10Gb LAN. Make sure case will accomodate ATX motherboard. If not, get a new case.

That is a tempting motherboard here are some problems 

 

The network uses 10gb fiber

 

Every motherboard that has built in audio that I have had has noticeable static that's why i have the sound card

Most modern motherboards isolate the sound circuits. The one listed uses separate pcb layers along with pcb shielding.

 

Sadly, I don't think there are any motherboards with a 10Gb fiber optic connector.

Now I am also considering running this along side my current rig that way I could spread the workload between the rigs using synergy to control the two that could help a lot
