>>52681749 That's why you overclock it, you tech-illiterate retard. The 4790K was designed for babies like you who don't know how to get into their BIOS and need a fast clock out of the box. People with a functioning brain can go in and adjust two values themselves.
>>52681749 >For gayming, it'll be mostly worse due to its single-core performance still better than amd, and a few fps is just stupid to worry about >For rendering, it'll negligible because most high-end software is GPU-based with cuda cores. maybe he doesnt use high end software
Let me let you anons into my world so you can see the turmoil I'm in.
I have $515 on my Amazon account, and I have $755 on a special Best Buy thing I was gifted.
I'm trying to build a PC with these two sources of money. The problem is that Best Buy doesn't have a huge selection, and even when they do, half of it is inflated. Trying to put a build together in this way has been a nightmare for the past two days.
The 5820k is a sever-grade processor built for sever-grade functions.
I will never understand why game-kiddies or 99% of consumers buy it. I'm a heavy-duty power user, and I struggle to fill up 5 threads. The times when I DO maxout my hyperthreading, I'm limited by GPU's vram, not the CPU.
>>52681946 Yup. The 4790K still uses cheap, shitty TIM. It's just 10% LESS shitty than the stuff they used on the 4770K. Intel have to save the half a cent per chip it'd cost them to use solder instead after all.
>>52682003 Yeah, they won't let me just buy some gift cards with it. At this point, I'm considering buying the 5820K, monitor, SSD, keyboard, and mouse at best buy, because it would add up to about $750
and then on amazon, buy the GPU, case, RAM, PSU, heatsink. I can only get 1 8gb stick of ram. god.
This is what I have so far.
Best Buy > 5820K = $399 > GA-X99-GAMING 5P motherboard = $309 after tax it's like $750, basically all of the money
Amazon > single 8GB ddr4 2133 stick = $38 > NZXT Source 530 case = $85 > GTX 950 FTW edition = $150 > CM 212 EVO cooler = $30 > EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W $89
after tax, I have like $60 left. could maybe squeeze in an EVO 850 SSD. can't afford a monitor. I'll be stuck with my fucking 15" LCD. I have a HDD, too.
The only thing I can see doing is moving that $85 case over to Best Buy because they actually do stock it, giving me about $145 on Amazon, and picking a X99-A, which they do sell on the marketplace(best buys online shit). god fucking dammit that wouldn't work either because it'd cost too much. fuck fuck fuck

>and realized it wouldn't work because i didn't even account for a motherboard
that's basically everything from Best Buy that even has the possibility of not being inflated
Amazon > GTX 950 = $150 > 16GB DDR3 1600 = $70 > some case $50-$100 > EVGA SuperNOVA G2 650W = $89 > nice keyboard = $75 > mouse = $30 and that'd eat the amazon money. mouse i could maybe get at best buy. who the fuck cares. I'm fucked this shit will never work.
>>52682464 it doesn't even matter. the stuff that i'm actually interested in that they actually stock and will price match is already within $5 of the same price so I really don't give a shit at that point. like i said, their selection sucks ass as it is.
>>52682544 what exactly is wrong with something like this http://www.bestbuy.com/site/ibuypower-desktop-intel-core-i5-8gb-memory-1tb-hard-drive-white/4757106.p?id=1219638966081&skuId=4757106 ? he could use all the amazon money to replace the psu or gpu or whatever the fuck else he doesn't want from that but it's a good base to work off of
>>52681816 >>52682183 >>52682337 >>52682463 desu OP just get a 6600K, automatic save of $150 and then with a cheaper $150 motherboar,d you just said another $150. put that $300 into a couple of monitors and a nice keyboard and mouse. there, you have everything and the CPU is still fast. the 2500K is super popular and owners love it because top-tier i5's are always the best bang for buck top end CPUs. it's the same with 2600K guys, too. unless you have a fucking job/career editing video or something, you really don't need a damn 6 core i7, and no it won't be more future proof. you'll use this rig for like 5 years, maybe 6-7 years tops. by then you'll build a new rig no matter what the hell you have inside. we'll have like fucking graphene carbon nanotube fuck CPUs by them and idgaf what CPU you have from 2014-2016, it will suck ass compared to whatever we have in 2021-2023, guaranteed. i say get a 6600K and have fun with the last silicon based chip you'll ever buy. >>52682687 >$700 for a i5-4460 and gtx 750 lmao what a joke
>>52683194 I would edit this by taking out the 212 EVO, taking out 1 8GB module, and using that ~$70 for a really nice cooler. 8GB is fine and you can just drop in another stick anytime you want. Also, if possible I'd probably get a slightly nicer case just because. That case is popular and would do the job but since you now have like $250 to spare... $100 monitor, $70 keyboard, $30 mouse or trackball if you're god-tier... you'd still have enough to add a $100 case that'd last multiple builds instead of some budget-build $50 thing. If you can't find a better one on Best Buys garbage site then don't sweat it.
don't know if I'm the weird one here, but idk why we're putting in a GPU at all if all OP is doing having fap fests to Artificial Academy 2. That $150 could go into something else like a nicer heatsink or a really fucking killer keyboard, or just a fleshlight to aid in his AA2 fap fests. >>52683290 am I the only one that thinks this build really isn't that impressive? like a 4790K is great, but a 950 is just the bang for buck GPU, nothing crazy about it. everything about this build is solid, but not crazy or noteworthy. p depressing to think what $1200 gets you these days family
>>52683323 i actually agree with this. if artificial academy is the most intensive shit OP is playing, just use the integrated graphics. even that 950 will be major overkill. artificial academy runs on the integrated graphics of my old sandybridge 2520m laptop at almost full settings 1080p with high frames. no fucking doubt a 4790k with even better integrated graphics will be perfectly good at max settings. The GTX 950 will be outdated by the end of this damn year when Pascal and Polaris are released. This is a big year for graphics cards because of huge requirements by VR. I wouldn't advise ANYONE buy a GPU until Polaris and Pascal GPU's are out. Fuck OP, you'd be fine with even a 4690K. I almost guarantee you'll see no difference in performance unless you're actually utilizing the HT on that 4790K. I always say to get the i7 to be safe, though. Developers might pull their heads out of their asses and optimize their applications in the future. You want to get the best CPU possible. GPU is an afterthought unless you're mostly playing games like a faggot.
