    You already build it or ?

    If no then just go with the 1151 socket "Skylake" also might wanna hold on the GPU since they are coming out with Pascal new Nvidia GPU"S


    Edit.

    Skylake:

    Skylake CPU :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-561-_-Product

    1151 Mobo (comes down to what you like but has to be socket 1151 if you gonna use skylake CPU) :http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-876-_-Product

    DDR4 Ram 8gb http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...-886-_-Product

    I am a 25 year old gay woman who has had a crush on an older woman at work and resently found out she isn't interested in me. Oh well, so I am trying to find that woman who would enjoy my company. I am a nice woman who will respect your situation if you want this to be our little secret. I might be up for a threesome, but would really enjoy the two of us. I am gainfully employed so I am not looking for handouts, but I do enjoy shopping and thought that might be a fun first date. I love beach walks, feeling the wind in my hair, and cooking. Want to know more, we can chat through e mails, but must have voice verification before we meet. Still want to explore this? Just reply, I am home and ready : -)

    Still haven't built it.

    I'm not going with a Skylake build as I've heard the 4690k is already powerful enough. I will upgrade to a better GPU in the future such as 970, 980 but in the meantime the 960 should do well with the games I want to play.

    Understandable. but dont buy a 960 if you are planning to buy a 970 or 980 in the future . I always skip one generation GPU's i have 780 ti i skipped the 900 series and buy the next series Pascal which is coming around April "so i heard"

    The next GPU will probably cost more than this build altogether

    I have a 4690k and its totally worth it, you should go for it.



    This is how GTA 5 with ENB performs on my system, with a 4690k and a overlocked GTX 970

    Thanks alot, spent quite a time working on custom settings that would work on Ultra settings, you would definitely not do anything wrong with your current build.
    Maybe 960 to 970 would be good if you have the money for it, otherwise its fine.

    I probably won't be playing GTA 5 anyways, I'm going to be playing games like CS:GO, BO3, JC3, Far Cry Primal, etc.. Eventually like I stated I will move on to a more powerful graphics card when I can. (I'm only 15 so yea)
