- Hi, I would like to build a high end gaming pc, but i am not v…
Well, what do you know I actually had a pcpartpicker list for someone not long ago for a similar budget. Now while this is by no means "overkill", you can definitely get away with a much cheaper CPU (an i7-5820K instead of the i7-5960X) if it's mostly just for gaming, and still have like 70-80% of the performance for heavy video rendering stuff, if you're into that.
Either way you'll easily get something that crushes through any game at 1080p/1440p max settings and way beyond 60 FPS. 4K is even doable at 60+ FPS, some games might need a tiny bit of tweaking but it's hardly a problem.
Also, when you're at this kind of budget, I'd really reccomend a 144hz monitor if you don't have one already. 60hz just doesn't do high end cards like the GTX 1080 justice.
And if you've got any other specific needs / preferences, just lemme know.
thanks a lot man, really appreciate it.
No problem man.
Also, consider the i7-5820K instead of the i7-5960X. The money you save can be put towards a kick-ass gaming monitor.
what's the difference between the two? and would dual monitors be worth it?
The 5820K is a 6-core while the 5960X is an 8-core. Their stock clock speeds are pretty similar; and although the 5820K has a slightly higher stock speed, the 5960X will generally overclock better being a higher quality chip.
For gaming, there won't be any difference in like 9 out of 10 games. Only super CPU intensive games will show some difference, but it's pretty marginal. I previously had a 5820K that could do 4.2Ghz, then switched toe a 5960X which is now at 4.5Ghz (can do higher). But most of the difference I'm noticing is probably cause of the higher clock speed. I play a lot of GTA 5 which is very CPU intensive, and while it does seem to use more than 6 cores (to some extent), it's not a huge difference.
But the important thing is the 5960X costs like 3x as much, and you're only REALLY going to see a difference for video editing and rendering. So unless you're very picky about that, get the 5820K and put the money you save into a good monitor instead.
Another thing is, I bought my 5960X used for a really good price, and IMO it's not really worth the full price. For gaming alone and most tasks the 5820K is a much better value.
Dual monitors is worth it if you find a way to take advantage of it. I have 3 myself, my main one for gaming, and two cheaper monitors on the sides where I keep steam, spotify, skype, chat windows, chrome, etc open. Just don't buy TWO of those expensive gaming monitors, that's kind of pointless.
alright, ill take that into account. you've been super helpful to this pleb, thanks a lot. ill probably get the 5820K
my pc friends got hard ons from that build
No problem man. Hit me up if you need some more tips.
Are you getting the entire razzle dazzle including a monitor, mouse, keyboard, etc? Or just the computer itself?
jsut he computer. i already have a monitor, keyboard and mouse
A budget of $3000 is way overboard. You can get a top-end gaming rig for half that.
Best way would be having a parts list, which many users here could suggest if you asked for a lower budget, I'd bet.
the thing is, i looked at parts and i had no idea what i was looking at. i dont wanna buy something way overpriced, and i dont wanna buy stuff that doesnt work together
>Top-end for 1500
Well, for his needs. If you're starting out your first gaming PC with $3000, you're doing
it's gonna be christmas gift from my parents, they said the budget is 3k. they wanna reward me for helping out in the home business daycare
since they know ive been wanting to get a nice pc for games. neither of us really know what a monster pc costs so they just threw out a number
