Windows 7: New Build, Nerd Crisis

13 May 2015   #11

Win-7-Pro64bit 7-H-Prem-64bit

Micro Center has some better deals on cpu's at the moment,
i7 5930k 499.99 which I bought Monday
The 5960x was 899.99

Ha your correct there is no 5920k

But the x99 board is in any variant :)

Option one: Intel Core i7-5820K, EVGA GeForce GTX 960, Fractal Design Define R5 (Black)

Option two: Intel Core i7-4820K, EVGA GeForce GTX 960, Fractal Design Define R5 (Black)

Both seem very attractive in their own regard. The first would feature an Intel i7 5820K with an ASUS X99 Pro motherboard, but only 2.25TB of storage, while the second would only feature an Intel i7 4820K with an ASUS X79 Delukes, but with 4.25TB of storage. I think I'd get more long-term use out of the first, but more immediate well-rounded value from the second. Still, I just don't think I need 4TB of storage yet.

Help? Ideas? Thoughts?

That GTX 960 2GB though they do make a 960 4GB but i would just get a 970 seriously the 128bit bus will just hold you back at least 256 Bit will be smoother and more information can pass through the doubled Bandwidth

You`ll never see a 980 drop to the 960`s price, but that would be a nice dream
