Looks like they also have the 8086K for just a bit more. If I hadn't got a deal on an 8600K not too long ago, I'd probably pick one up.

Which desktop Intel CPU is the current "sweet spot", i.e. almost as powerful as the top CPU but 30-40% less expensive? Or have the economics of CPUs changed over the past few years? My ancient desktop finally gave up the ghost so it's time for a new build.

Also, how much DRAM are "enthusiasts" putting in their builds these days,. i.e. non-gamers or professionals who need the most powerful machine but still want great performance? 16 or 32GB? I can probably figure out the rest, e.g. PS, SSD, video, etc.

Only people I see putting in more than 16GB are streamers and people that also use their builds as workstations for some industries (video editing, photoshop, etc)

And of course people who don't need it but want to big-dick their pc specs.

Probably going 8400/8600k i5. The i5 8600k is a 6 core/6 thread cpu with passmark benchmark of 12,835, compared to i7 8700k being a 6 core/12 thread cpu with passmark benchmark ok 15,997.

Concerning ram, however much you can afford I suppose... I would go 8+ if you are gaming. the 10$/gb is kind of hard to swallow though..


(Corrected 8700k cores/threads. My mistake, must have been looking at the i7 7700k, good catch)

Heh. Not a gamer at ALL. Nor much of a streamer. Or anything too intense. But I have been known to have 6-8 Firefox tabs open at once, while watching TV in Windows Media Center, while working on a largish spreadsheet, and maybe some large PDFs open. 16GB should probably suffice if that's what most people are maxing out on, but tempted to go for 32 (I'd also like the eventually get around to doing some editing of old family videos). Do you still install sticks in pairs and are there usually 4 slots in better ATX MBs, so I can get 2x18 and still have room for another 2x8?

That was my guess, one of the top i5's. I'm also looking to keep the average/peak power use to a decent level and I'm guessing the i7's use a fair amount. Are both i5 and i& good at reducing power usage when idling or doing basic stuff like spreadsheets and surfing?

Also, I'm leaning towards getting another Gigabyte MB since I've had amazing luck with my current one (nearly 12 years of nearly daily use--yes, you read that right, 12 years with the same PC!). Are they still considered among the best? Again, not a gamer or huge streamer. I'm sure they're all good, I just have good experience with Gigabyte.
