Solved

Looking to build a computer with liquid cooling (Up to date parts) that'll run ultra settings 60+ FPS for all games.

I prefer the computer be around $1,300 to $1,500 dollars maximum, I want it to be a build that last me for years too, (Picky right?). I'm not very good at building computers myself, so I was referred to come here and post and ask for help. I want the i-7 6800k processor and around 16 GB of ram maybe 32 GB if possible. I have a friend that can build computers well he's just busy but he knows how to install everything once I get the parts. A good computer case (Hopefully with extra space) GTX 1070 or 1080 graphics card but I'm not too sure what PSU i should get. So, hit me with your best (builds) shot! Thanks guys!

  1. You'd be beter off getting a 6700k and investing more in a GPU as the 6800k is overkill for that budget, and unless you intend to OC it the 6700k has faster single core clockspeeds too.

    We dont know if you need Monitor or Windows and peripherals in that budget.

    And if you want to go with GTX 1080 then something like this.

    You can get better cooler later if you feel need for it, but even with 212 EVO you can OC easy to 4.5 and keep safe temps.

    So, I have the peripherals and a monitor ( I intend to get a second monitor eventually or maybe 2 same monitors) however, I will need windows for this new computer. My last question is, would I be better off going with the 2nd build so I can overclock? Or will I notice much difference between the liquid cooling setup and the overclocking setup?
    Also would the mid tower case still have enough space to add some upgrades/improvements in later on?
  4. Yes case have enough inside for some upgrades.Bot setups can overclock, ofc one with liquid cooler will OC a bit more but even soo with GTX 1080 you will get better gaming performance. It is easy just to swap new CPU cooler later on if you feel need for it.
