Question The 5-year rig

Hello, I'm new here so I'll try to not make this long. As the first thread states:

Quote:
• Where are you located? - Romania
• What is your budget? - 1900-2000 Euro
• Will you need a monitor, keyboard, and/or mouse included in that budget? - No
• Shall you be requiring an OS? - No

• What will you be using this rig for? - Everything from 3D animation, video edit to everyday use
• If gaming, what resolution will you be playing at? 1920 - 1080 and higher
• Will you be overclocking? - Probably
• Do you need a full build or will you be reusing some old parts? - full build
I need this to keep me all good for about 5 years, mostly because this is a budget a lot over what I can afford (by this i mean I have an income of about 200 euro ) so I need this to be as good as it get's in that price range.

With that said this is what I think is ok, please help me with advice, pros, cons, anything that you think is acceptable.

CPU:
i7-4930K
CPU Cooler:
Xigmatek CAC-SXHH6-U02 Aegir SD128264
Motherboard:
Asus Rampage IV Extreme (maybe Black Edition)
RAM:
G.SKILL - DDR3 16GB ( 4x4GB ) RipjawsZ 2133MHz CL9 XMP
Hard-drive:
Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card:
EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 Superclocked 2GB
Case:
NZXT Phantom 630 (Matte Black)
Power Supply:
Corsair Enthusiast Series TX850 V2, 850W, [80 Plus Bronze]



All the best,
Deeds

I'd downgrade to 4770k or even 4670k, and then get a beefier GPU. I reckon the 4770k might be ideal. You could even fit in a 780 Ti.

If I change the cpu I'll need to change the motherboard too. Would that be better?

Try and get a solid state in there too with that budget. It would be rude not to.

The 4930K is the last processor in that 'line' as Haswell-E comes next year, which is the same pin config but afaik completely different motherboards, so you won't be able to go anywhere else with that CPU/motherboard configuration.

That will be the next step, SSD, then maybe more ram, then wait for money to appear so I get the titan

Also, since there has been no competition from AMD in the high end market during last 5 years, CPUs have evolved rather slowly, ~15% per generation.

As such my current CPU is 5 years old and I still don't really see a reason for replacing it.

So are you saying that either way 4930k vs 4770k it will still be good 5 years from now?
