Is it possible?

Budget: $1000

Location: Boston

Use (Gaming, Rendering, etc): Gaming

Peripherals required (monitor, keyboard/mouse, etc): Just the PC parts, I have a monitor, Windows 7, Mouse and Keyboard already.

Operating System required: None, I already have Windows 7 that will only go on this new rig.

Requirements: Get me a PC that will run Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 at 60fps. :)

I only need a cpu, motherboard, ram, hard drive, video card, cpu cooler, case, psu, and case fans for airflow.

Kinda new to this but why does everyone pick the i5-6600k instead of the i5-4690k? Isn't the i5-4960k better in most ways?

i5 4690k was best i5 CPU couple months ago, but i5 6600k came out recently, and it's newest technology, it supports ddr4 memory, and it's overall faster i5-6600k vs i5 4690k.

Wow lol. A couple of questions.

  1. How does the Radeon R9 390 compare to the Nvidia cards and which card does it compare to? The 970?

  2. Does it matter if I go with a LGA1150 socket motherboard vs an LGA1151 in terms of performance? Will the ram be faster if i get an LGA1151 cause the ram will be DDR4?

Thanks!

  1. All the manufactures don't really matter. They just offer different styles of cards and how they are made, etc. The R9 380 is better bang for your buck. If you would go with GTX series you should always go with the best like the GTX 980 or the GTX Titan. Those are for really high end computers. For your situation I would go with the R9 380 or the R9 390.

  2. In order to go with the LGA1151 you need to get a Skylake build. The processor I used in the build I gave you is close enough to the i7 I am pretty sure. You can overclock it sure to make it just borderline with the i7, but I know nothing about overclocking. So I wouldn't suggest it. You would always go to different parts to try it, but you would have to research it.
