[CH][1080p] - Gaming Beast / Video Rendering / Photoshop - Approx. 2k€

Hello everyone

First of, I am new to PCPARTPICKER.

Probably the best site I came across, ever since I decided to build my gaming PC.

I've decided to go with a Skylake Build.

My Budget is around 2k - doesn't matter if it's a little more or less.

Mostly I'm looking for opinions and things I could do better on my build.

What will my built be used for:

  • 1080p Gaming (all kind of Games really)

  • Video rendering (Sony Vegas)

  • Cinema 4D

  • Lightroom 5 / 6 - mostly for Time Lapses

  • Maybe a little streaming

What am I looking for in my build:

  • Kills every game in 1080p?

  • Silent => Please Case suggestions - I really can not decide...???

  • Future Proof - I think I might upgrade in 3 Years with another GTX 980 Ti - Is that smart?

  • Preferably a simple / smooth case. No need for anything fancy with special LED FX. Window would be nice though

  • Also I prefer INTEL and nVidia, but I'm open to suggestions otherwise...

Here's the list: PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

It's a little expensive but I recommend the phanteks enthoo pro. Amazing budget case. For a really sleek looking mid tower case the 450d is really nice also.

..and that case really is silent :3?

Well any case would be silent if you change the fans. Which you look like you are buying. :3

So far I mostly looked into the Fractal Design Series as well as an NZXT Source 340 or something similar.

Um well its 100 over but legit i think if you save a bit more money you will have a freaking killer system http://de.pcpartpicker.com/p/ptZjrH

um Yeah honestly this is the best for what you will be doing even though its a bit over. You will have 32 gb's ram that are compatible together, a titan x for killer everything, and an amazing case. The only thing i would do later on down the line is add that h100i back on, its just a bit to pricy to put on that list as is now. fully modular psu, a slightly cheaper mobo with the same features pretty much. Ditched the fans for now, you can get some later on to improve air flow. and added a mid tower as you probably wont be fillling it up to the max. hope you like it if you have anyquestions feel free to ask. :P

Why would I get a Titan X, if a GTX 980 Ti is almost performing as good? Not sure on that :/

It squashes the 980ti in anything rendering based and graphic based like rendering and the such. Also it does out perform the 980ti by a small margin. Point in case the titan x is far better for doing actual work then the 980ti would be.

Well, I know that. However it's not like I'll be doing professional work :p

I'll mainly use this my future computer to play games. Cinema 4D is more like something I do just for fun :)

So I think I'll save that money^

Idk what you're talking about they are great psu's. I have never had an issue with them nor has anyone I know had an issue with one of the nex series.

Again I have never had nor heard of anyone I know having a problem with them, you have solid evidence but take in the fact that production changes occur more than you would think. This post is a year old, I can almost positively say that the problem has most likely been fixed. But good on you for pointing that out. :P

I hope it has, but until EVGA say they changed things, what do we have to go on?

Their GS and G2 versions are good as are XFX, you can certainly find a better quality PSU for less money.

I would get a good air cooler instead of a water cooler. It will perform about the same, it will be considerably cheaper and wont destroy your build if it fails.
