want to make a rig for Premiere Pro and After effects mostly.
I think the following are a waste of money for an edit system, which you should not combine with any other activities. Build a separate system for gaming.
Corsair Hydro Series H110i GTX 280mm Liquid CPU Cooler
-NZXT Hue+ RGB Lighting Kit
-Corsair Carbide Air 540
-EK Single 5.25" Bay Reservoir (Includes Dual DDC 3.2 PWM Pump)
-Noctua NF-A14 PWM Linus Tech Tips Edition 140mm Cooling Fan x3
-Corsair Air Series AF120 Performance Edition Case Fan Twin Pack
-NZXT Sentry 3 Touch Screen LCD 5.25" Fan Controller
-Logitech G910 Orion Spark
-Cryo rig A80 Hybrid Liquid Cooler
That's part of what comes with the i7 5960x. I can sell them. The guy wants to sell it all as a whole though.
My issue is the processor and graphics though, which is what i was asking.
I love my i7-5960X and my new EVGA 06G-P4-6163KR GTX 1060
after effects is currently being redone, to make it more multi-threaded. so currently the 6700k is the fastest, but that will eventually change and some people are using the older versions of AE for better performance with higher core count cpu machines.
for premiere pro, the 6 core cpu is entry level 4k, 8 or 10 core is better when budget allows. i'm not familiar with AUD prices, but it sounds like its a good deal. looks like you would still need several parts besides the gpu to complete the build, unless you already have them or they weren't in the list. so you would have to figure out if you can complete the build and stay within your budget.
which gpu you need will depend alot on how many gpu accelerated fx and functions you plan on using. if you can find a used gtx 780, 780ti, 970 or 980 for a good price, they may work fine. if you got one of those (or something slower) and had bad playback performance, you may still be fine by changing playback resolution to 1/2 or 1/4 for smoother playback. if you want something more future-proof, the gtx 1000 series has some 4k hdr features.
there were no desktop gtx 800 series. the closest thing to it was the the gtx 750 and 750 ti. this pudget article shows the gtx 780ti performing slightly faster than the 980 with premiere. the 900 series had alot of changes that were for games.
The guy wants to sell it all as a whole though.
I'd recommend buying new from Newegg. It might even cost you less without all the stuff you don't need.
But even if it's a bit more, new is still better. If it's broken, you have recourse.
a new cpu on newegg alone is nearly the same price as the entire used package and cpu's have extremely low failure rates. if the OP can go thru the seller to get around non-transferable warranties, it will give him some recourse.
.....with all that cooling gear and a broken part on the MOBO, I would be fearful someone may have heated the living bejeezus out of that CPU and left it in a near death state....maybe it belongs in a PC "hospice". !!
When I asked if a mate could go over to test it out, he said he already had a better offer and sold it.
So yeah, made me think it was dodgy! (especially since he was selling without a psu). I'll definitely keep that im mind about having heaps of cooking gear! ^_^
Thank you so much!
I am lost with which processor to go with and want to get the most out of anything i get. Unfortunately I wasn't able to get the 8core.
So with speed wise, does having say, a 4 core with high speed be better than an 8 core with lower speed? I understand if the speeds are radically different, I saw one guy wondering whether to get a cheaper, older 6 core or a newer 4 core.
I appreciate your response! ^_^

for adobe's software you want to focus on high core speeds first, then more cores. the new 4 core i7-6700k will match or beat many of the slow 8 core xeons. if you want to do 4k the newer 6 core cpu's are better than old ones as they run faster ddr4 memory. best value tops out with the i7-6800k or 5820k overclocked 4ghz+ and memory around ddr4-3000 speeds. after that the 8 core and 10 core i7 cpu's have a major jump in price.

3 months later, I got the 5960x and running a 1060 turbo 6 gig.
Dude, so much better than what I had and life is much easier haha.
Overclock that GTX 1060 on the "Memory Clock" and push it even better!
