This is an article that i found in a forum:

The CPU is generally something that will make a gaming computer last longer, rather than something that makes it game better - assuming you buy something adequate. There won't be much of a difference, if any for games, between the 6500 and the 6600k, especially if you're using a single GPU.

But going up to the 6700k would prevent CPU bottlenecks for longer than either of the CPUs you're looking at. Plus it would allow you to have other things going on without slowing down games. It's just a better CPU overall that came stay the same speed under a larger workload than the i5 chips. But that doesn't matter if you just want something to work for now.

So ask whether you're investing in the platform for a short or longer period. If you want to keep relevant for 5 yrs (give or take), then the 6700k will give you the best chance of doing that. The tradeoff is that it costs more now. If you want a platform to last you only 3 years (give or take), then the i5 will be fine. The tradeoff is that it will cost more over time but less now.

All that said, if you want to run SLI with two fast cards like the 970, I'd say to go for the 6700k. SLI just needs the CPU to send information to the GPUs faster than normal, and the extra threads will help with that, especially if you plan to play newer games. None of this should be necessary for FFXIV:ARR, though. All depends on whether you want to reach the 5 year mark. I think you'll definitely have a good chance of doing that with a 6700k and two 970s (assuming 3.5 GB of VRAM will be sufficient, though I don't know about that), and building that setup would start to get expensive.


I don't know where have you seen a 6500K because all what Google shows me is i5 6500 non K:p
even if i would SLI my 980 ... i know i wouldn't have to buy a 6700K ... my 6600K would still hold it like a charm (i bet they have share on Intel and try to convince SLI/CFX aficionado to go 6700K and pay nearly double for "tremendous" 1% to 5% difference(obviously a joke)) :laugh:

altho SLI is, as CFX, useless, and "fastest single card solution" is always more desirable. definitive, i had a 580 SLI for a while : back to single card after some time, personal experience? when it work ... it work (not very often) when it goes peanuts (more likely)... it's a PITA not worth the overcost or the hassle.

If u r only gaming it has showed even with the newest titles we seen in 2016 that more than 4 cores doesn't give u an advantage and is sometimes slower.

I had a i5-6600k and now i got a i7-6700k bcs I also started encoding from time to time again so I have a boost here and ofc in all games there is a boost too going from a quad-core to get HT but I think it's mostly frequency and cache that gives the most boost.

If u haven't purchased a board yet does it have to be ROG board could be a Z170 Pro Gaming it's a nice board have the ITX version and it's cheaper than any of the 2.

I usually was a ROG user myself but I didn't really wanted to pay a lot for a ITX board since Asus only has the Impack ITX going ROG which is just expensive so I ended up with the Z170I Pro Gaming runs well no issues.

I want to build a Gaming Machine that at least it should last 3 or 4 years, of course 4 cores CPU can handle 2016 newest titles but what if in 2 years it's not the same, what if in two years i have to upgrade because 4 cores CPU are becoming obsolete? No obsolete but are not powerful enough to handle 2017/2018 new games, we don't know what surprises those years will bring us.

I would imagine if the Xbox Scorpio and/or the Playstation Neo will really pack 8 core Zen processors as some rumours suggest, that this would accelerate the process.

OP said in one of the prior posts, that price wasent really an issue, så I would go for X99 system, simply because I wone ever go midend. With more cores and treads, I feel like the platform is more future proof and also quadchannel DDR4. Ive done that and I will never ever go back to a 4 core CPU, no matter what.

Thanks God, finally someone that said something wise:toast:

I can't just think for 2016 when choosing a CPU.

Hoisted by your own petard (quotes):wtf::shadedshu::roll::p
I know what i wrote.
I bet you know what Crunching means, don't you?

For me crunching is something serious and it doesn't matter if i have to use AMD or Intel, in this case i put apart my egoism and i don't make exceptions if use AMD or Intel in order to help to save a life.

I'm a dinosaur and use i7 4770k and had i5 4670k and for the money I'd stick with the 5 series. I know that's not what you're asking, but in general. Pound for pound it does well and handles sli/crossfire. But if I'm in your shoes, if go 6850 just because

For gaming, for the next few years at least the 8 threads of a 6700k are plenty, and you are more likely to see a benefit from the higher speeds you are (most likely) going to achieve overclocking a skylake

As a maximus ranger owner i would advise the hero board, the ranger is pretty good but wont get much further than 3300-3400mhz out of 8gb memory sticks, the hero's seem to hit 3700+ easier

I'll let you know tomorrow about that, i have to ask a few guys, you know who, i need their opinions.

BTW I would prefer this one:
MAXIMUS VIII EXTREME

go for 6850K, I have x99 platform now and I would never go back to 4 cores as suggested by Ebo. Because you will feel the "strong force" with it. :D All CPU can multitask but 6850K can be HEAVILY multitasked. :rockout:

If not, yes, slap yourself repeatedly until your wallet doesnt hurt from the unecessary spending. There is no need for such a board for ambient cooling. :)
Let's do something better, it looks like you can give me a good tip, because i am a ROG lover can you tell me which board should I buy for a 6700K and take in consideration that i would like to overclock to 4.5GHZ/4.7GHz.
