Or an AMD FX processor would be goo too. You can get 8 cores for £117.49!

No it all depends on whats the other hardware is in the computer. I'm just recommending an i7 for the graphics card you have. Don't go for Xeons as they are more meant for servers or big rendering projects (films, etc...)

750 or 850 RMX from corsair

Yes, as long a s you have around 16gb of ram and a new i7, it would easily do that.

i5, but I would use a Skylake one.

Yep, I agree. A 6700k, 16gb ddr4 and a single 1080 would be good, but you could still go cheaper

Yep that's a pretty good CPU there. If you wanted something better go for the new architecture like a 6800k or even a 6900k if you want to go overkill. To be honest you could save some money but I need to know what resolution you will be playing at (1080p, 1440p or 4K?)

I know it is a bit more than your budget, but go for a i3 or i56 and a 940M graphics card with 8gb of ram. My friend got this asus and it is quite good; https://www.amazon.co.uk/ASUS-X556UB-XX039T-15-6-Inch-Notebook-Black/dp/B01FE6HST0/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1471437565&sr=8-3&keywords=asus+940m

I would do what @Chillsabre said and get the MSI motherboard. To really future proof this computer I was also recommend getting a 2TB hard drive too, and if you have the extra money upgrade it to a WD Black instead of a Blue.

Well it would reduce the chance of a bottleneck sufficiently, and it would allow both cards to release there full potential. Overclocking the 6600k would just allow it do things faster, not to be able to do more things at once. I would still recommend to overlock the 6700k if you are going to SLI two 1080's. 6600k has 4 core and 4 threads, so having to have the two really powerful graphics cards and having to process things from a game may bottlenecking your graphics cards. The 6700k has 4 cores and 8 threads, so It can do more at once, and If you overclocking it, this is where you see an advantage of having 8 threads. The 6600k in my option is more for single cards like a single 1060 or 1070.

Yes go for Ubuntu Lightweight, helped boot up speeds and shutdown speeds. Use Firefox as a browser. That should keep it going. Try to get 4gb of ram if you want to use it, if not 2gb Is fine ;) good luck

The processor fitted in the machine is the best in the range with the same socket (I belive) so if you want to upgrade, you will need a new motherboard and cpu and cooler and maybe even power supply.

To be honest, this computer is never going to be fast due to its single core single thread cpu. I had a machine simular to this and it is very slow and it even had 2gb of ram. There is no chance of cheaply upgrading this pc to be able to play HD video without stuttering or even the computer being remotely fast. Take out the hard drive and psu. That's is the only reusable parts of this machine. Sorry about the bad news.

Thats only if you are water cooling though with a AIO pump. I know you are loosing 1 USB 3.1 ports and a couple of USB 3 ports if you choose the Asus, but i believe it will be worth the sacrifice ;)

The Asus board has a onboard water header, crystal sound 3. Also I am going for the Z170 Deluxe for my build. The Z170-A also has 5-way optimization. I would say, i do prefer Asus products to MSI, but they are still both very good companies.

This is my opinion but I would rather spend a bit more In future proofing rather than spend less. Just get a Asus Z170-K or something like that. It'll serve you many years I'm sure. Also wait until nvidia releases it's pascal GPUs as the price of your new R9 390 should go down because of competition. ;)

My personal opinion is to go for a EVGA or As Rock, but in the end it depends to cosmetic, features and price. I found it hard to choose between Z170 Sabertooth and Z170 Deluxe, I ended up choosing the Deluxe as the board was apparently separately watercooled and it had more features

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Which of these is the best for a gaming build?"

  • 41 months ago
  • 1 point

I would go for a Z170 series board, ATX by Asus. You choose what one you need as the A differs to the Plus (e.g usb 3.1 and dual gbit ethernet). For my build I went for the Z170 Plus, by Asus. Presumably you are going Skylake, so you will probably want DDR4 for proper futureproofing.

Good luck :)

In my opinion I think that PSU is OK, I would recommend changing the cooler to a NZXT Kraken X41 (for mounting on exhaust fan). The pre-applied paste that comes with the X41 is good, but if you want to change it got for some Arctic MX4

Yeh it's about 8cm, I don't mind not having the side pannel on so there's no restriction on height of the cooler. Also I turned my laptop on this morning and noticed a weird smell from the HD bay. Upon opening it up, the HD smells kinda burnt but still works perfectly fine (no weird noises, etc...)

The CPU is a Intel celeronD, (single Corr, 3.46ghz) It's not a custom PC, it's a old HP I got of my friend which came with a rusty cooler. It's a mini itx board, socket 775.
