#3660 PC Build Thread in Hardware

I ended up never upgrading my build from 2015, and a lightning strike near my house somehow killed my pc a few nights ago. I’m trying to see if I can recover the data from my harddrive, but anyways I guess now is a good time to upgrade. I’m in college, so I won’t really be seeing my pc too often, but I’m looking for a build that could sustain games like warzone at 1080p 144hz. My family also uses my pc, but not too demanding other that my dad, which he’ll use it for virtual machine. I’m also wondering if I can just put off buying a new gpu and instead use my 960 till I can save up for a better card. However, with a new gpu, my budget ranges from $800-$1000.

oh I didn't think of that lmao. Is there any news about gtx 20 series or volta happening in 2017?

What are the other options than skl-x? I know about kabylake-x, but that's only 4 cores (based off a quick google search) and I need the additional cores if I plan to single pc stream.

#2187 PC Build Thread in Hardware

I know zen is a thing now, but by the time I have enough to buy the parts, it would be best to just wait for skylake-x.
Vega isn't being released until 2-4 months from now, and with the prices of nvidia being lowered, I think I should just buy the 1070 now.

Though my question is, will my current hardware, which I posted in #2182, be able to support the 1070? Or should I just hold off on buying the 1070 and continue to save up until I can buy the parts I listed in #2186 (obviously with the successor to 6800k).

You know about the whole EVGA 1070/1080 VRMs catching fire/exploding?

Your current PSU would be fin. 650W is definitely overkill though.

And that's just because it's cheaper than the 450W atm.

If you insist.

I'm not going to explain bottlenecking again. Depends on the game. In TF2 your CPU is already the bottleneck.

What do you mean "wait until you have nough to buy every part"?

Originally I was planning to save up for this:

But I realized that I won't be able to buy all the parts until around late summer/fall or so, near the time Skylake-X or whatever the successor to Broadwell-E is would be announced.
So I opted to just buy the gtx 1070 now, as I'm getting very low FPS in games (not tf2), and a new PSU, as my current one isn't very good.
Then I would just continue to save up and buy the i7 7800k and the rest of my build.

murkscribeI'm not setsul, but I question why you would get a processor, when you can get the same performance for less with newer processors, albeit at barely better levels.

It's not a new build. The build I posted is the current build I've owned since 2015. What I'm asking is if I can upgrade the gpu, 750ti to 1070, and psu, shitty corsair 430w to evga g3 650w, without causing any problems.

While saving up for my new build, can I just buy and replace my gpu and psu in my current build now?

My current build that I own right now (built 2015):

I plan on replacing the 750 ti with a 1070 https://pcpartpicker.com/product/Tv38TW/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-8gb-sc-gaming-acx-30-video-card-08g-p4-6173-kr

And replacing the corsair 430w with the new EVGA G3 650w https://pcpartpicker.com/product/y88H99/evga-supernova-g3-650w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0650

Will it cause any problems or bottlenecking? Or should I just wait until I have enough to buy every part and build it then?

I read about how the nh-d15 can have some clearance issue with the gpu on some mobos. Will it have issues on the asus x99-a ii? If so, will the nh-d15s with dual fans be as good as the d15?

#2114 PC Build Thread in Hardware

just another quick question, will the 1070 handle dual 1080p 144hz monitors well? I'm going to make my current monoprice 144hz monitor my secondary and buy a benq xl2411 for my primary

SetsulDepends on how you define "a lot better" and how much Voltage you're willing to dump on it.

I'd expect something like 4.4 vs 4.6 on air.
If a few percent more or less make a difference for you either get a 5930K or 6850K or wait for the 7800K.

well those two are out of my budget haha so I guess 6800k will be fine for me. Is there an advantage to using a water cooler over air cooler (corsair h100i vs noctua d15) to overclock the 6800k to atleast 4.0ghz?

Setsul#2109

Well if you want a slower CPU, sure.

yeah it is slower, but the people who are recommending the 5820k over the 6800k are saying that the 5820k overclocks a lot better than the 6800k. is that true?

Well that's kind of difficult to say, considering it's not released yet.

750W is overkill, unless you're going for multiple GPUs.

Q3/Q4.

should i wait for the 7800k?
when would the 1080 shine over 1070 besides playing games at like 4K ultra?\

edit: ive searched some shit up and a couple of people are saying to get the i7 5820k instead of 6800k or 7700k. should i get that instead?

Yes, a bit.
Anything that uses more than 8 threads.
You will probably regret buying one right before the Zen release though.
Don't forget the added mobo cost.

i'm an intel/nvidia fanboy, but how much better is Zen from the 6800k? i might consider it.

this is my 6800k build if you wanna look at it:

I'm saving up for either a 1070 or 1080, but idk which one to get.
Also do you know when the 7800k is coming out?
