I am looking to do one gaming rig for my girlfriend and myself. I am looking to run Aster on it as Softxpand is not compatible with Windows 10. I'm not sure if an i5 6600K will be enough to run this setup or if I should go with the i7 6700K. I have done this with an i7 3770K. It seemed to work well but I didn't do much stress testing as I didn't have a great gfx card for this.
Anyone have any experience with these types of setups?
This would be good advice except for the fact that he is looking for and E5-2680 V1 That is not compatible with 2011V3 sockets (like you suggested) He would need a motherboard that supports FCLGA2011 socket which is a X79 socket. The motherboard you listed is socket FCLGA2011-3
I was actually looking at this one, GA-Z170X-Designare. I love having either a dual bios or bios flashback offered by asus. I also wanted to go for the pretty colors and wanted to throw in as many usb 3.0/3.1 ports as possible while maintaining the 7.1 onboard sound card.
Well like i said, Ive done it before with my 3770 but I didn't stress test. I guess i may have to but i'll get the program and stress it or search for videos. I was having a hard time last night finding some information.
Dual setup on a single system can be a hassle. First, you have to setup virtual machines and in can, or will, take considerable amount of time depending on your level of knowledge setting up virtual machines. Second, you have to have a powerful hardware to push your dual gaming on one CPU (and I'm talking probably SLI/Crossfire setup), meaning it'll probably be expensive. On the flip side it can save you a lot of real estate gaming on just one system.
