Exactly mate future proofing il be grabbing one of these end of the month as well
Yes, but you won't be using your computer for more then 4 years.
Atleast i don't, mine is almost 4 years old. time to sell it to some kid and i will buy a new one for 900€
I could spend more, but i rather have a motherboard that is fitting like a glove with the CPU. Sometimes it will be fast, but will outrun the rest of the computer.
It need to be like an engine, working smooth.
Stuff that is on the computer that won't do anything because nothing can handle it won't do good.
It won't cause a big problem but it is just waste, he could spend that money on a power supply.
Power supply is 750W and Ram is 2x8GB sticks. Might aswell stick with the i7 4790k as I have it myself and it is a pretty good CPU, noticeable difference in most games!
Also, why shouldn't I keep with the i7 and go down to the i5 that will be worthless in 1-2 years when I could just got for the i7 and be good for another 4+?
Rather just spend the money now then and get it out of the way then spend more in the future fixing a fuck up
Anyway, it aint for me, just building it for a friend and thought I would get some final advice or a stamp of approval
