Description

After three and a half years of saving my pennies I have finally built the rig of my dreams. I spent a whole day building this, very slowly and methodically, and everything worked perfectly first time. I have yet to overclock as I haven't the need yet, I'll be upgrading to SLI before I need to overclock. But she purrs like a kitten and is the love of my life. Nothing below 35-40 fps on even the highest gfx settings. I couldn't be happier.

Why did you pick that PSU? Newegg reviews aren't exactly appealing... Its not at an incredible price, and its not modular. So why?

How did you feel this build did? Performance wise on games? Any thing you would do different? I am building a similar build which is why I ask.

I am especially curious about your build because I am choosing between the 5820k, and the 5930k. Do you wish you had the extra power?

Sorry, now it's built I frequent PCPP a bit less. The power has been fine for me so far, I haven't seen very many issues at all. For example, I've had Adobe Premiere, Jasc Paint Shop Pro, VLC Player and Wolfenstein: The New Order all running at the same time over two monitors and didn't actually experience any lagging at all.

The price difference between the 5820k and the 5930k is far greater than the actual visible difference in performance - at least I would conclude that. I don't have a 5930k, but since I'm not noticing any lagging or loss of performance with what I expect (and what I expect is "when I open this program I want it to open instantly and execute functions instantly - and with games only have as minimal a loading time as possible") - I can't imagine the 5930k would be much noticeably better.

Save the money you spend on the CPU and get a better video card. The GTX Titan X has just been released, nudge nudge wink wink.

Good luck with your build brother!
