So how much %usage do you think I'll be at with running 2 games and streaming at the same time? Because my current conceen is just the cpu usage as well. I bottleneck around 95% when i play h1z1 alone

I currently have an i5-4690k and am just trying to figure out what differentiates my current cpu against this i7-7700K. They both have the same amount of cores so why does the i7 you recommended make a difference? Sorry still learning alot of new things here haha

So I don't need a hexa core cpu? Curious about the differences between quad vs hexa i7s

Edit: should I care about what exact motherboard goes with this build too? Why did you specifically choose that mb?

So my initial attempt was the HDD removal. I took that out and it booted just fine. What does this mean? That I should get a new HDD?

I only plan in helping it increase my ability to stream, would it make a significant difference?

I'm attempting to be capable of streaming myself playing MMOs while running other apps as well. I drop frames when I play Blade & Soul so I assume I'd be dropping FPS while playing Black Desert Online. What would alleviate that?

So I'm getting the feeling that air cooling isn't good for this cpu ^; but I have no budget, I'm just not knowledgeable of watercooling and I know I don't want to attempt and somehow mess my computer up so yeah! Any tips for air?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "More RAM = ???"

Yeah when I stream+ play blade and soul I hit around 7gb usage so it would probably be my best bet to get 8gb more of RAM. Do I have to set anything up or will my system recognize that I added another RAM stick after putting it in?

thanks for the info, I'm still a bit of a newbie as this is my first build but how would I control the fans in the case?

yeah I thought so, so there's nothing close to the 390 other than the 390x? It just rises up to the 980Ti's after that?

The motherboard is good for bang for buck z97. PSU is also in good range however be wary of the possible faulty brand. Seasonic/EVGA are generally more reputable.

Thanks, I really did want to make this a good start-off for me. I just needed clarification on if I should do this or that haha. Should I start learning how to OC now? Any tips or recommendations to learning how to OC?

PSU seems a little overkill, you're pulling a wattage of 356W unless of course you plan on upgrading.

So the gpu is added, change of storage because I had an issue with seagate previously, a couple bucks more for guaranteed problem-free storage. And a suggested psu.

If you don't overclock then you can bear with the minimum and not have a cpu cooler, since you want to keep it under $380 then I would just stick with what you have now, not seeing anything that sticks out like a sore thumb. Everything is pretty much bang for buck.

So I added the xfx to see how much wattage you would pull. I noticed that the wattage hikes up to about 494W. You typically want a PSU that holds 100 more than what pcpartpicker says it'll pull just so that your whole system doesn't boom. Also, hearing from my friends that have owned corsair psu's, they're not for the long run. EVGA/Seasonic are reputable psu's so try looking for a 550-600W if you're comfortable with the prices. Everything else seems pretty good.

Have you thought about overclocking? If not, then a cpu cooler isn't necessarily needed. I can give you my recommendations of certain parts that can be changed but it all depends on if you want to overclock or not.

It all depends what you're trying to play, what fps you expect, etc.
