Hey all I'm currently looking into having my own PC custom built. The list of options is endless. I'm looking to build a beast that will survive for the next couple of years at least, so I'm including some top-level hardware. I'm not savvy enough to know everything about this so I'd like to ask these questions. NVIDIA GTX 1080 vs AMD equivalent? Everyone is praising the 1080 for it's glorious performance, while others claim there's AMD cards that match the performance at half the price. What would you recommend? Is there an amazing GPU combo I should consider? CPU: Intel vs AMD I'm looking at the latest Intel i7 6700K 4x4.00Ghz CPU, and again some tell me an AMD processor is just as fast, for less money. Thoughts? Air vs Liquid cooling Liquid is obviously more expensive, but is it worth it? What's the difference between 1150,1151 and 2011-3 Mobo sockets? Is one preferable over another? RAM-wise, is 4x8GB better than 2x16GB? Also is any RAM as good as the other or are there better performing brands? Thanks a lot for your help!
So I'm saving up currently and I'm planning on building my first rig, I have an idea of the parts I'm looking for within my budget and the stores locally around where I live, will these all go together, fit into the mobo and the case? Plus I heard you needed an anti-static armband or something, how does that work? Here's my lovely spreadsheet.
