So I just started building my new computer but I'm at a stand still. I have no idea what I should get for my CPU. I have already bought my motherboard I decided to go with an Intel based one here it is http://www.msi.com/product/mb/Z87_MPOWER_MAX_AC.html#he... So basically what I'm going to be doing with this PC is Recording, Video Editing, Live streaming and playing games on at least high settings at 1080p.
I know the new Intel CPUs are coming out tomorrow but i don't know if i want to get an i7 4790k for I think it's $340 or save $100 and go with a newer i5? I want to save money but I also want something that is going to last for a couple years so my question is, Is there a huge difference between the newer i5s and the new i7s for what I'm trying to do?
I have been making youtube video for over a year now and it's gotten to a point where it's basically like a part time job with the money I'm making so I figured I would invest into a better computer that would allow me to make better quality videos so basically I need to be able to play games at high quality 1080p and be able to record them at 1080p to what i have now just isn't working so if anyone can help be with this I would appreciate it.
Sorry for any grammar errors I'm using a really tiny laptop to type this and I just gave up half way through on trying to correct some of the errors
The more and faster ram you have, the better it is for editing. 1866 is good, but maybe 16GB
Raid doesn't work on SSDs. But you can partition a 240GB to get 2 x 120's.
Water coolers are usually nosier. Noctua air coolers are the go.
You only need 650W of a R9 290. The AX760 would be fine.
Forget about bitmining. It's not profitable now. That's why R9 290 prices have dropped.
Thanks for the response I already have the motherboard I got it for for free same with the r9 my buddy was really into bitcoin mining and he had a bunch of stuff left over and he gave me both of them although I was looking at some of the z97 motherboards but I figured the one that he gave me would work for a couple more years until I decide to make some upgrades
For the power supply I heard that over time they degrade not sure if that's correct or not but I was told by my buddy to not go under 800w not sure if that's just his opinion or if that's like a fact
