    Default This all look compatible to you guys?

    It's time to finally upgrade. I tried to just upgrade my GPU but it's not quite enough. Basically I'm building the system around my already purchased nvidia geforce gtx 980 (I think it's a basic reference 4GB) .... the $550 one.

    Here's the rest I have in mind. What do you think?

    Thinking about purchasing.....

    MSI MSI Gaming Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION

    MSI MSI Gaming Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

    Intel Core i5-4690K
    Intel Core i5-4690K Haswell Refresh Quad-Core 3.5GHz LGA 1150 Desktop Processor BX80646I54690K - Newegg.com - Newegg.com

    G.Skill TridentZ 16GBx2 DDR4 3200
    G.SKILL TridentZ Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Intel Z170 Platform / Intel X99 Platform Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-16GTZB - Newegg.com

    ....

    Will that processor work on this motherboard? Any thoughts? This is mainly for gaming and movies

    Thanks!

    PS - any advice on storage would be appreciated - especially if it takes advantage of features on that mobo.

    MSI MSI Gaming Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
    MSI MSI Gaming Z170A XPOWER GAMING TITANIUM EDITION LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard -- $299.99

    This is a lower priced motherboard that might meet your needs:
    MSI MSI Gaming Z170A GAMING M7 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com
    MSI MSI Gaming Z170A GAMING M7 LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard -- $204.99
    TechPowerUp Editorís Choice 9.9 rating -- $189.99 after $15.00 rebate card

    Do you want or really need the more expensive board's features? If yes, go for it. If no, will the lower priced board meet your present and future needs?

    I'm partial to MSI motherboards because their hardware is second to none and they have a phenomenal user to user support forum. HardOCP has criticized the MSI bios layout and organization even though it covers all the bases, but in a somewhat awkward way.

    Check the MSI memory compatibility list for to see if this memory kit is compatible with each motherboard model.
    Check the G.Skill configurator to see they have tested this memory kit with the motherboard models that you are considering.
    If G.Skill or MSI says that the kit is compatible with your new motherboard you are good to go.

    If the memory kit is not listed as compatible in either of the lists, find another kit that is compatible in at least one of the lists.

    psu:
    Are you planning on using your old Ultra 650 psu?
    No offense but most Ultra brand power supplies are not very good.
    The power supply is the most important hardware in your system, check out PSU 101 - Power Supply Primer for detailed suggestions.

    With the upcoming holiday sales, you can frequently find a high quality power supply with excellent sale prices, but some of the sale prices are only good for one or two days. Snuz and you lose.

    A 650 watt psu might be OK, but you won't have room to grow.
    You will be better off with a 750 - 850 watt power supply.
    The following link is for highly rated EVGA and Seasonic power supplies in the 650 - 850 watt range.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...00%20600014101
    Other companies such as Antec and Corsair offer some very high quality power supplies. You won't know which are good and which are bad until you've read psu reviews from the best psu review sites.

    Are you thinking of upgrading your monitor?
    I recently bought the following monitor and using a 27" WQHD (2550x1440) IPS or similar monitor is a no brainer.
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824236294
    ASUS PB Series PB278Q 27" 5ms (GTG) WQHD HDMI Widescreen LED Monitor 300 cd/m2 80,000,000:1 Built-in Speakers, Height & Pivot Adjustable -- $419.99 (sale prices might drop to the $380 - $400 range) If you don't need a monitor that pivots to portrait mode, you can probably save $50 or more with an equally good monitor.

    Many users have been very happy with the Korean made, 2nd tier monitors, but warranty support is virtually non-existent, unless you don't mind spending $125 or more to ship the defective monitor back to Korea. There are threads in some enthusiast web forums dedicated to the good, the bad and the ugly with the Korean monitors.

    Filtered list of monitors with:
    • Filter: Search Within : pivot
    • Recommended Resolution : 2560 x 1440 (2K)X2560 x 1600 (2K)

    Default Re: This all look compatible to you guys?

    The devil is in the details with Skylake, but this is nothing new.
    My P35 motherboard had some either/or selections when choosing which pci-e slots I wanted to use.

    But now, when it comes down to setting up your drives.....

    After reading the MSI Gaming Z170A XPOWER user manual's storage specifications on page 16, I revisited Intel Skylake / Z170 Rapid Storage Technology Tested - PCIe and SATA RAID *updated* | PC Perspective where it all started to make sense, but now I've got a headache.

    There is also some good information in the user comments at the end of the PCPER article.

    Living on the bleeding edge has its drawbacks.

    Living on the bleeding edge has its drawbacks.
    lol yep it does doesn't it.

    Maybe I should take a step back and re-engineer this whole project. I'll need a little time to digest what you've provided. I'm not against starting from scratch again, except that I did already buy the GPU so that's gonna be the heart of it.

    Is it still too early to consider 4k rig? I've read that it might be. Maybe allowing for that kind of expansion later could be desirable ... then again, maybe this video card isn't the best for that plan. It's kind of an afterthought for me. But to answer your questions 'yes' I have considered newer power supplies and a new monitor. Shopping for a monitor looks like it too could be quite an effort. On the other hand, the prices sure have come down since I last bought one - more than 7 years ago.

    I researched the Haswell processor I listed was well respected for my needs and thought I read it was backwards or forwards compatible regardless of the lack of sense it makes LGA 1150 LGA 1151..... I don't have to go Skylake, but thought the DDR4 might be cool to have. Then again, it looks like it wont do me a WHOLE great deal of good. And could even cause me some headaches (being newer and less tested etc)

    I'd like to be able to play around with OCing so I really want an unlocked processor. And a mobo that is OC friendly.

    Just wanted to drop in to say thank you, so far and I'm about to dig into your replies. Thanks Jim!

    Food for thought:

    SuperCombo Black Friday Upgrade Special: Computer Parts, PC Components, Laptop Computers, LED LCD TV, Digital Cameras and more - Newegg.com

    Intel Core i5-4690K Devil's Canyon 3.5GHz Quad-Core CPU + EVGA Z97 Classified 152-HR Extended Motherboard + HyperX Fury 8GB DDR3 Memory + RaindbowSix Seige

    48 HOURS ONLY **Promotion expires at 11:59PM PT on 11/27/15. Limit 2 per customer.
    Combo Discount: -$290.97
    Combo Price: $299.99


    This setup might be an excellent and inexpensive option.
    If the EVGA motherboard is half as good as I think it might be, you could have an excellent setup, but you will need to decide if you want to go with a Haswell or a Skylake setup.

    You might have trouble finding reviews of this motherboard, but there are a fair number of Amazon and Newegg user reviews.

    The EVGA motherboard has an EATX (extended ATX) format so it will only fit in computer cases that handle the larger EATX format.

    The included Kingston memory module (there is only one 8GB module) might not be compatible with the EVGA motherboard.

    As I recall the Haswell processors run hotter than the newer Skylake processors and you will probably need to spend $80 - $120 for a highly rated AIO cpu cooling setup.

    Basically with this setup you're paying full price for the motherboard and the cpu and memory is free.

    Keep in mind that with Newegg you usually have only 30 days to RMA defective components and that they need to receive the RMA'd items within 30 days of the date of your invoice. If you can't build and test your new setup within this time frame you will need to RMA with the manufacturers.

    On an unrelated note, I think that your reference GTX 980 won't be able run some or most games with a 4K monitor, unless you lower some of the in-game quality settings. I'll post links to a couple of reviews from HardOCP shortly that will compare the GTX 980 and GTX 980 TI cards when gaming with 4K monitors and 2560 x 1440 monitors.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Video Card GPU Review

    Now that we have had some solid gaming time with the new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti,
    we will be putting it up against the GTX 980 and TITAN X video cards, in the full HardOCP
    GPU review format. We are including new games, The Witcher 3 and Grand Theft Auto V.
    We also look at VRAM utilization and power and temperature levels.
    note: The first review does not include overclocked gpu gaming results, but the comparison between the reference GTX 980 and the more expensive, higher end GTX 980 TI sets a baseline for the next review which includes overclocked GPU gaming results.


    MSI GeForce GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK Video Card Review

    Today we have the liquid cooled MSI GTX 980 Ti SEA HAWK video card, with features that
    have it screaming to be overclocked. We compare it to the overclocked MSI GTX 980 Ti
    LIGHTNING with air cooling in a battle of premium GTX 980 Ti video cards. We also compare
    it to a reference GTX 980 Ti to determine the full range of GPU performance.
    Other excellent review sites include PCPER and TechPowerUp.

    PCPER has a recent review worth checking out: EVGA SuperNOVA 650W and 750W Platinum Power Supply Review

    If I needed a new psu, the EVGA power supplies that are made by Super Flower and based on the Leadex platform would be first or second on my short list.

    Default Re: This all look compatible to you guys?

    Just like you said, 4k isn't even close to being in the sweet spot for compatibility nor is it anywhere close to being standard. I find myself able to afford to spend at the moment (which normally is NOT the case) so here I am flirting with some of the upper offerings that could be within reach....... This window of opportunity wont last too long. This is one reason I want to lean a bit more toward future proof vs X generally.

    On the other hand, I don't want to get in a situation where its going to be frustrating trying to get it all how I like it (4k scaling issues across apps etc) and all the unkowns that come with 'bleeding edge'

    My heart wont be broken if I can't go 4k display. The monitor I'm looking at(literally) right now is a 1680x1050 native and I've had it for ..... 7-9 years without issues. No matter which way I go, it'll be a significant upgrade.

    There's so much stuff to look into (research)..... when you don't keep up with it. I might just 'settle' on a Core i5-4690K which should do everything I need and still have the headroom to tweak OC. Any thoughts on that choice? Do you think it could be outdated sooner?

    Skylake versus Haswell?

    For me it boils down to possible advantages of some of the newer features and/or capabilities, such as the availability of lanes for video cards and higher end ssd's. If we are not running demanding applications such as encoding or intensive image editing with large RAW files, does DDR4 memory provide a noticeable benefit?

    Check out Intel?s Skylake Core i7-6700K reviewed: Modest gains from a full Tick-Tock cycle | Ars Technica for a not too involved point of view.

    A web search using: skylake vs haswell provides additional useful links.


    Suggestion: It might be best to buy a decent 24" 1920 x 1080 monitor for about $125 for now.
    I suggest getting an "IPS-like" monitor for better picture quality than the TN panels have.
    There are several types of newer monitors that offer picture quality that is similar to or slightly better than IPS monitors.

    HardOCP has a followup review that shows how well the best performing, overclocked, single gpu GTX 980 Ti video card performs with a 4K monitor when running demanding games. Keep in mind that this card sells for $750 and a GTX 980 (non-Ti) card sells for $500.

    I'm working for the phone company right now and they've opened up OT this week and last. So it's keeping me from getting some of this research done. We went in at 9:30PM Sunday nite and worked through to 5PM Monday evening

    I'm gonna check out this article you posted while I can here.
