Hello. Im Nik, im new here nice to meet you all
Im planning to make a major update from my current phenom ii X4 955 BE system.
What im planning to keep from my current system.
SSD : Samsung 128GB 830 Series
HDD : 4 TB WD BLACK
GPU : GiGabyte Radeon HD7950 3GB
PSU : Corsair TX Series 850Watt
Sound Card : Creative Sound Blaster Z ( I have Logitech's Z5500)
Cae : Cm HAF X
So what i need is Ram - Cpu - Mobo.
What i need from my pc ?
-no1 Future proof(As the current system i have lasted- I will upgrade after 4 years)
-Handle everyday tasks easily.
-Handle 4k resolutions-video streaming-gaming smoothly.
Should i go for amd set or the new devil canyons?
Or It would be worth waiting till the next gen of cpus -rams?
I am thinking to spend around 600 eyro (800 $ - 475 Gbp)
this is a very nice build. if you can afford an i7 by salvaging older parts do it. if it comes down to i5 vs FX 8 core i would lean towards the FX chip (mostly because you mentioned streaming). but for moderate gaming and every day tasks anything over an i3/FX 6300 will do (to be honest)
Thanks for the replies!Appreciated! I think i will go with plywrlw's second combo with i7 4790k cause its new and as i see very powerfull. I will stick with Hero V2 motherboard and 8 gigs of ram(2x4) corsair vengeance.
Here's my shopping cart( I live in Greece) http://prntscr.com/476zh9
( And i will get all those programs and watch dogs for free )
1 more question. Should i go for 1600mhz or 2400 mhz ram since they are too close to price.
As long as the voltage on the 2400 isn't too high (Intel can get funny above 1.6v) get that. You won't see a massive difference either way. I don't have massive experience with high speed, high voltage ram on a Has well and I'm on my mobile phone right now so can't look anything up but if anyone with more experience of this wants to contribute I'd be very grateful!
(Intel is going to be better, but a bit more pricey)
What are you using this for specifically? You should b able to manage with 8GB of RAM from a reliable company (G.Skill, Corsair etc..) if you are not video editing/rendering. Looking at about 60 euros for standard 2x4GB.
