|Hello everyone, |
So i am a photographer and desperately in need of a new pc. I do play games from time to time but not to an extreme level. Aside from photos and games i do a little of video editing but currently not a priority. And silence is kind of important for me. People keeps recommending X99 is better than current Skylake systems generally so i am looking forward towards X99, (also i think its cheaper to get 64gb ram in X99 than skylake)
So the build i had in mind is something like this: (and as i never built a pc before i am looking for custom pc builders in uk or cyprus)
Cpu: i7 5820k
Gpu: Gtx 980 ti (People says i have to go with Nvidia because Adobe doesn't supports AMD)
Ram: Either 32gb or 64 gb kit depending on the budget but intention to make it 64gb eventually.
Storage: M.2 drive for boot, 1x 500gb ssd or intel card ssd card things, 2x 3gb WD black in raid 1 and 128gb Samsung Evo SSd for scratch disk
PSU: Anything +750watt with +80 Gold rating and up (so many choices)
Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster ZX or XZR
Things i haven't decided yet:
Case: if i am going full tower: In Win 904 or Phanteks something Primo. if mid tower Phanteks something Luxe.
I am a sucker for cool looking, brushed aluminium cases.
Mother Board: Again, so many choices and i don't understand whole lot of this techy stuff. May be a standard MSI or Asus x99 motherboard, something like Asus x99A, as i can't see too much reasoning spending a fortune here.
CPU Cooling: As much as i want a cool looking liquid cooling setup i don't think i am going do the maintenance regularly or correctly. Prebuild liquid coolers looks cool like Corsair H105i but scared from leak problems. Might settle with a good fan based cooling system though.
Extras, working conditions and future plans:
Cool RGB led strips
Flashy Ram sticks (ones that slowly pulses light)
Possibly a 2. GPU in next 3 years.
I will use the pc with a 4k monitor + 1x or 2x 1080p monitors.
I will probably OC the cpu.
Please let me know what you think and/or if i missed anything. Sorry for the long post ^_^
