Gaming + Rendering and Video Editing Workstation Build Help

Ok, soo i want to build a PC for gaming at Ultra on the newest titles at 1080p (dont need more than full HD, at most 2K) and rendering in 3ds max + working in after effects and video editing. I kind of need help with the rig i have chosen, to see if someone more experienced than me with this situation could help :) .

My planned rig:

Intel Core i7 4790K or 6700K (I want to have the option to overclock)
Asus Z170 (I am kind of an ASUS fan-boy :D ) or Z97A for the 4790k
Crucial Ballistix 16GB DDR4 or the DDR3 version for 4790k
Cooler Master Hyper 212
R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X (I think i will need the 8GB of VRAM because i will be using plugins that store most of the data in the VRAM, like Element3D and Ray-Fire)
Seagate Desktop SSHD 2TB 7200RPM
EVGA SuperNOVA 750B1 750W
Fractal Design Define S Black
And a couple of 120mm fans

I would love to see comments and reasons, thanks in advance guys :) !

  1. ``Cooler Master Hyper 212`` get the cryorig H7 instead
    ``R9 390X Sapphire Tri-X`` a r9 390 will suffice ..but why not?
    ``EVGA SuperNOVA 750B1 750W`` get the b2/g2/gs series instead
  2. Best answer
    The 5820k is going to be the best option coming in cheaper than the 6700k. It is much better for video encoding, editing, and rendering.

    6 cores vs 4 makes a huge difference.

    Sure I can take your suggestion but how much difference does pixel rate and floating point performance make between these two cards the r9 390 and the x-version?

    You're absolutely right i totally forgot about the 5th gen intel core cpus, yea the 5820k will make a differnce with 2 cores even though i loose 0,7Ghz :)

    it depend on the price of the r9 390x ..if 150$ more then the r9 390 , better have the r9 390 and save 150$ , the performance difference its not so high between both

    Yep but it's good to note that the 5820k uses solder as TIM, so it overclocks quite well. Delid not required.
  7. +1 for the 5820k cores cores cores!
