I'd go for a new skylake i7 6700k 16 ram ddr4 (since is not alot more expensive than ddr3) and a gtx 980ti (even SLI if you got the money)

Based on what I've read here, I've composed a small shopping basket on Novatech.

Please bare in mind that PC components cost a lot less across the pond. I've also left out the case, as this should be user choice. However I do recommend cases by Corsair/Cooler Master.



The total cost of this build in USD is around the $2100 Mark.

I'd recommend the i5 over the i7 for gaming. Unless you're going for bragging rights. I've got a friend with a 980Ti in a 4690K rig and it's perfectly capable for ultra gaming at 2K(1440p).

I also don't think it's justifiable to have a hard drive over 2 TB; unless you really want to install your entire Steam library.

Additionally, you don't need 1300 Watt to run this system, you're just wasting money.

If you're referring to games like Mad Max, with the Ivy Bridge i7 3770 as recommended, according to Steam. It doesn't mean that you need an i7 to go ape shit when it comes to graphical fidelity.

Again, I'll bring this back up.

He has no problem running GTA V on ultra, with 2x MSAA. GTA V, in my opinion, is probably the most CPU intensive 'Next-Gen' title currently on the market.

Additionally, according to this site. The new Need for Speed will work perfectly well on an old sandy bridge i3. However, EA hasn't actually released any requirements themselves; not on the Origin store page of the game anyway. So I'd take this source with a pinch of salt, but the requirements they list seem reasonable.

Finally,


Although this counteracts my argument for a 6600K, I still think the adoption of new technology, i.e. consumer grade DDR4 memory, is worth the extra money.

Go for the DDR4 option and think about doing multitasking or video rendering with a more pwerful CPU or even going ape shit with some games...if not then cut from the CPU and go for an SLI setup

AMD is better, because it's cheaper and more powerful
