No Budget, But Cost Effective.

I'm going to be streaming, recording, and gaming all at once (Fall Out 4, GTA V, CS:GO, G Mod, etc.) I need a PC that can handle this with ease. Its also going to also be used for some video editing and basic Photoshop things. I want a build that can can handle my requirements but still be as cheap as possible without giving up performance or bottle necking things. Planning within a year of the build for SLI or Crossfire so keep that in mind.

I look forward to your ideas =D

I can make 22 part lists with the vague info provided. then see him/her reply ito each, "I don't need this, that or that", "this case is too big for my deak/shelf", "I do/don't want LED fans", "I need a headset", "this list is a USA list and I live in insert country here where the pricing is different and these things don't even exist on the market" etc. the guidelines are there so people don't waste each other's time. you're right likely, but I don't wanna guess.

i have never done a part list for this typ of use, but i would go with something like this. There will be no issues running all your request with the i7 5820K and there is room for SLI with 850W PSU

You need to cut one of the 390s off but it's there for proof of concept. That for me is the cheapest way to do everything you want to do well without looking tragic.

On this motherboard, the dual GPU configuration will suffer frame-pacing issues, performance bottlenecks, among other issues...

You're routing the second GPU's communication to the system over a PCIE 4X 2.0 slot hosted by the chipset here. REALLY BAD IDEA. The communications link from the chipset to the CPU, is equivalent to a 4X 2.0 link, and is also responsible for handling all disk , sound, network, USB I/O etc. You're going to flood that link with GPU communications.

Expect garbage results.

Thanks for the info, I would never normally consider a dual graphics setup on a low end chipset/board but not for that reason so it's good to know.

I can see now, I knew they had PCIe 3.0 so assumed the other lane would be.

I don't think you can guarantee that this particular xfire solution is better than a 980Ti in every game. It's certainly a potent combination of cards given a single cards ability at 1440p if this is the desired resolution. I wouldn't trust it to run 4K at this point though. That said I wouldn't build a 4K PC yet so there you go lol

yup. 4k isn't too viable yet. for adding another 390 down the road I guess that's not bad. I wouldn't start out with two of course.

I wouldn't even plan on two, but it's what he wanted lol

it is, but the increase in heat and power consumption is double for the same performance, when drivers and crossfire is working at that. it is never advisable to take two gpus that offer the same performance and cost as the stronger single card. goes doubly in this case as the 390 itself has the same or higher power use than a single 980ti. then you have a setup with no room to add more gpu power, is much louder and case temps are much higher. and for the times when crossfire isn't gonna work, which will be plenty, this setup is a waste of money.
