Hello,

 

In a moment for stupidity I went ahead and bought a new system last night. I could still cancel (I just need to let them know in about 15 hours) but could you let me know what you think of the system before I decide to go ahead with it or not? It's for P3D and for video / After Effects rendering. 

  • Intel Core i7 6700K at 4.6GHz
  • Asus Z170-A
  • 32GB (2x16GB) Corsair DDR4 Vengeance LPX Black, 2666MHz, CAS 16-18-18-35 (can't find faster memory at 32GB)
  • 6GB EVGA GTX 980
  • 2 x SSDs
  • 1 x HDD

It seems like a great system and I’m sure I’ll be happy but I just want my mind put at rest as it is £1500 worth of kit.

 

Thanks for reading,

 

Mike

All good, but would definitely change for faster memory.  Go 16gb if needs be, but I would be wanting 3000mhz stuff at the least

Yeah I agree here.

 

Lower it to 16 GB (plenty enough anyway) and go for higher frequency RAM. You will get slightly better performance out of this.

If they can fit Skylake specific RAM, GSkill Ripjaw V or Trident Z Even better.

 

I notice its the GTX980 not the 980Ti, pity you couldn't afford the later.

Thank you all! Will give them a call tomorrow and change the RAM.

 

And it's the 980Ti, not 980. My fault.

 

Appreciate all your comments.

Great then. 980Ti is an awesome card. I have one sitting right behind me ready for my build. EVGA Classified.
