No Speccy Thread, so here you go.

I built my desktop back in 2012 and haven't touched it since. Only just now is it starting to become noticeably weaker with newer games.

I'm really only interested with 1080p at this point in my life and along with a much better case I'm going to buy a GeForce GTX 1060 6GB.

Is this a good buy for my needs and should I upgrade anything else? Maybe the motherboard?

Thanks for your help guys.

1060 6gb is maybe a bit overkill but it probably shouldn't be bottlenecked by the CPU anyway, future proofing I guess

Based Dell Precision.

>> No.57374518

Not it isn't, it's only more cores, the single core performance is basically identical to the Core2quads if they are OC'd

I had a Q6600 that died, bought an FX 8320, got worse fps in some games and slightly better in others, but overall a little worse. Finally upgraded to a 5820k and holy shit was it an actual upgrade.

FX 8320 is NOT an upgrade from a C2Q, it's a sidegrade at best unless ALL you do is encoding or something which can use the extra cores in the AMD.

I use a lot of Sony Vegas and Hrandbrake transcoding, so it'll be good, I know the 8350 is a shit with a 1252 tdp, but it's almost 4x faster than my current pc without an OC. Plus, it will get rid of my CPU bottleneck on GTA V, the only modern game I play.

I'm waiting for 4K 120/144Hz monitors, hopefully HDR too. CPU is OC'd to 4.7GHz and does a fine job. I almost feel the itch to upgrade but there's really no point, the GPU bottleneck hits hard at 4K.

If you bought a gigabyte Z97 on cheap or something and 4790k it would be sweet, skylake hasn't brought us much.

>> No.57376872


im kinda on fence between 4790k and 6700k

im going to US soon and since hardware is way cheaper there, im thinking about buying 16 gb RAM and a motherboard + CPU combo

but im kinda illiterate about CPUs and Motherboards, so im clueless

>> No.57376903

If money is a thing and you want yo go fast, get a Z97 and 4790k, if you have the monet for DDR4 and wanting something a little newer, get the Z170 chipset and 6700k, the 4790 does slightly outbench the 6700k a little.



>> No.57376938


thanks anon

really appreciate your help

just one thing, can i use my current Motherboard with 4790k?

>> No.57376963

I think you can because it's the same socket, but you couldn't crank up the multiplier and overclock it, which is what the 4790k is all about.
