Next feedback on my PC build before I buy the parts

Hey everyone, I'm in the process on building my first PC. I want this PC to be able to play most games at high graphics and also be able to edit videos quite fast on it.

  1. If your video editing you should be going for a 5820k instead of a 6700k. It comes with 6 cores instead of 4 is much faster when editing videos.

    A 980 Ti is overkill if you just want to play on high graphic settings. Unless you have a monitor that's 1440p or better, you could go cheaper and still be perfect.

    You are wasting money on that power supply. Platinum is only saves a bit more energy than gold and costs double the price. It will never pay that extra amount back in your power bill. EVGA SuperNova G2 750w is more than enough power for your system and is one of the best PSUs on the market right now.

    Thanks for the feedback! I should have went into more detail about the gaming/video editing. This pc is mainly gaming based, but I will be editing on it from time to time until I save up to build just a editing computer. I am in the process of buying a 1440p monitor in the near future as well. I did change the PSU to the one you recommended. Thanks again!

    No need to save up money for that editing computer, the 5820k does an excellent job at that and gaming. It's only slightly below the 6700k but it overclocks better.

    Sweet thanks for the info!
  5. Yeah, no problem. Just remember that you need an LGA 2011-v3 motherboard for a 5820k.
