Hey PCPP forums. I just have a question that I hope you guys can answer for me. So I am gonna be building my first PC in less than two months and I am so excited about it. Part List HERE ---------> http://pcpartpicker.com/list/LmYLwV So if you haven't already looked at this you will notice that I have the almighty 6700k. My question is though, if I am going to be streaming NON Cpu Intensive games like (CSGO) do I really need to spend the extra money on the i7 when I can be the i5? I only plan on streaming that game in particular and maybe some skyrim SE but that is all, and I don't even plan on streaming for like a year or two from now as I need to get a good mic to do this type of this stuff. So I need your guys input. I want to get the i7 6700k just because it is an i7, but I acknoledge that it will not improve gaming FPS by much. Now I also like the 6600K and I don't hate it because it is an i5, but people online tell me the i7 is superior in terms of streaming. So I am kinda caught in the middle of deciding, and I need to know because I plan on buying my CPU on Black Friday since Micro Center has some good deals till the end of the month where the 6700k is $250 and the 6600K is $180 which is a $70 difference that I could save or spend it on other things. SO all in all I will BE streaming NON-Cpu Intensive games and I dont plan on streaming any of them that are CPU intensive. I would also like to save a bit of money and have an OC processor to get more performance out of it. I don't plan on doing any HEAVY video editing but I do plan on doing some modest editing though. So tell me guys what do you think I should do? Feel Free to ask questions and be on the lookout for my build next year!
