but is the 5820k more powerful than the 6700k? and that is a mid tower case, will it have plebty of room for x2 1080s and maybe liquid cooling?

For gaming, no not really. Arguably, an i7-6700k is unnecessary too, but I'd get the 6700k instead of the 5820k (or any other 6+ core CPU). The higher clock speed of the 6700k is its winning point. Regardless, the GPU will do most of the 'heavy lifting' for your FPS.

If he was adding an M.2 with 2 GPUs, then probably yeah, but without the M.2 the real-world performance is hardly affected. It only sucks when one of the GPUs run at 4x.

I'm not as sure about the relative overclocks. From what I recall, 4.5 for the 5820k and 4.8 for the 6700k tend to be normal?

I'm mainly focused on the price difference, so it's weird to see a 5820k being recommended for gaming.

Here's something to consider for a white/black build. Has lots of room for expansion, awesome case, and will perform on par with what you chose for 100 dollars less, which is money you could either save, or put towards new peripherals or more to make the computer look even better like sleeved cables or LED case lighting

Generated by PCPartPicker 2016-11-13 22:37 EST-0500 Updated part list. went with a 650 watt psu since 750 would be overkill. 2tb hard drive for a few dollars more than the 1tb :) . i should have stated that beauty is pretty low on my list as no one will see the case plus i just dont care, give me a plain black box with grates for airflow for all i care. the only thing im still unsure about is the cpu. i am interested in future proofing so a i7 6700k over the i5 6600k makes sense. the only draw back to the 6700k is itll take me a little longer to save up the money. i am patient so that is fine with me.

What happens to that power supply when you overclock the i5 and the GPU?

Uhh you could do SLI and overclocking on a 550 watt PSU if you don't mind be super close to hitting 550W from the PSU. WIth overclocking and a single card he will have PLENTY of wattage.

could you suggest a good water cooler? and do you have to change out the water often how does that work? sry for the

Not him, but Arctic's Liquid Freezer 240 is pretty quiet for a closed loop liquid cooler while still cooling better than all other 240mm rad ones. You don't need to (and in most CLLCs, can't anyway) change out the liquid.

That one is of terrible value. For about $10 less you could get a HSF which murders it. Also for about the same price you could get a better AIO cooler.

Non sense. All of these builds provide plenty of wattage. This has already been proven to you.
