The x99 option is your best option - by far!
And go for the i7-5960x if your budget can swing it.
Is the 5930k with gtx 980ti worth getting over my 2600k gtx 770?
both are about 75% faster in general benchmarks.
thanks, i think i made my choice than!
Hey, I like the thread, as I had the same question. I've just bought your recommend set with some slight changes:
ASRock X99 Extreme4
Intel Core i7-5930k
SSD 128GB for OS
2 x 2TB SSHD Seagate (in RAID 0)
16 GB DDR4 Crucial 3000MHz
Gigabyte GTX 980ti 6gb
Cooler Master CM 690 III Closed
Coolermaster Hyper T4
Just installed everything and realized the rendering is twice as fast as on my 2.8GHz I7 MacBook Pro. The result is slower than I've expected.
Any tweaking recommendations?
