Which motherboard is better for the buck and works best with this setup?

Motherboard: ASUS ROG X99 Rampage V Extreme ATX w/Wi-Fi 802.11 AC 2.4/5 GHz, Dual Intel GbE LAN, 4x Gen3 PCIe x16, 1 PCIe x4,1x M.2, 10x SATA 6Gb/s

OR

BanditPlunderer,

 

With this Intel Core i7 Processor you are showing only the ASUS Board can be used for it, having a LGA2011-V3 socket.

2011-v3 see here http://www.asus.com/...PAGE_V_EXTREME/

 

Other board shows as Socket 1150 Z97 will not work for that processor and older DDR3 RAM  http://www.newegg.co...N82E16813128700

 

ASUS board will work well,has the newest DDR4 RAM, good manufacturer and quality.Can take a look at other ASUS boards, make sure fits socket 2011-v3.

 

Try NVIDIA for chipset for graphics instead of AMD shown, IMHO.

Thanks for the help, but why do you suggest Nvidia over AMD when the  Radeon R9 295X2 runs adequate and is less expensive? I like Gigabyte, is there one that is runnable with the processor I plan with?

Gday.

Hope you  don't mind an enquiry BanditPlunderer?

What type of computer are you building, a high end gamer, or a workstation for photo/video editing?

I'm a gamer and book nerd, not a tech nerd. I could take the time to learn about PCs, literally both of my brothers are tech  geniuses, but yeah I'm the unfortunate Aspergers and occupy myself in history and Science fiction books, you know, the loner child. I'm finally getting a job soon and am planning on the BIG ONE; this'll be a entertainment PC I wont be buying a new GPU  on for a while. This forum site has been very reliable and quick to respond for me so far I love it.

Thanks for the feedback.

An Intel i7-4790K is as high as you need to go.   the link is for in store pickup only.   saves about $50 compared to elsewhere, useful if you are within reasonable driving distance of one their other stores.

I will configure a build this evening for your consideration.   

Before deciding on the GPU, AMD vs Nvidia, you will need to decide what monitor you have, or are likely to buy in the near future.   Look up G-sync for Nvidia and Freesync   for AMD.

This is a custom build I'm getting pieced from the popular link CyberPower. My younger brother purchased his custom build from there.
Hm I'm thinking I want to swap the Intel for AMD and keep this affordably for gaming; I know this changes my thread nearly, but is AMD A10-7850K 3.70GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Quad-Core APU w/ Radeon R7 8GCN Cores Graphics the best AMD Kaveri processor AMD has to offer and will it suffice with my idea GPU? What are the pro thoughts on this-
My monitor choice was chosen because of my choice in AMD, I like to keep things organized and so I even organized brands in the bulk of my customization. The monitor is supposedly Freesync available and is the Acer XB270HU - linked here: http://www.macmall.c...CFZOLaQodxzUAFQ

Also  I don't know if this is worth noting, but  I went with a lower range water cooling for the rig.
Corsair Hydro H90 140mm Liquid CPU Cooling System w/ Copper Cold Plate - Enhance Cooling Performance  (Single Corsair Air Series AF140 Quiet Edition 140mm High Airflow Case Fan)

Is the ASUS motherboard mentioned at the top of my thread still compatible with the AMD shift? I haven't ordered yet, the plan is it'll be weeks from now hopefully before September around my birthday so I still have time to think creatively.

Sorry for the delay. You will need to give a link for your total build before we could make comments.   

Your selected monitor is designed for use with a Nvidia GPU as it has G-sync components. 

Your Gigabyte MB from first post is Intel, not compatible with AMD processors.

 

Here is a an Intel build to look at, without a video card.http://pcpartpicker.com/p/9RBMdC

The posted image would be the build, but I'm going to switch the processor out for AMD.  Okay about the monitor, I've changed it to the BenQ XL2730Z  to which most definitely supports freesync and more!

Nope, been doing some research and trying to word my reply  so you don't think I am dismissive of your efforts, or rude.

both systems are being wasteful of your money as they are way over the top for a gaming rig.   having the most powerful CPU will not increase your gaming performance.

For gaming Intel beats AMD, even the i5 4690K the best AMD CPU, > The only fact we can draw from the results is that the AMD FX-9590 is inferior to Intel’s Core i5 and i7. > http://www.xbitlabs....0k_5.html#sect0  Please do more research.

 

You will not use more than 8GB or RAM, @ CPU default support speed.

 

Using any aftermarket heatsink/cooler, will void your warranty, should you need to RMA the CPU and Intel become aware of the fact, they may reject your claim, the same applies to overclocking, so you do them at your own risk.

 

750W PSU is more than enough for any single GPU and a fully loaded system.

 

The case, 2 bay PSU, 3x HDD Hot Swap Bays,  can't see the need, and you are adding $s to the base case included in the build price.

 

Today's on board sound is very, very good, so I would test it out first before adding a 3rd party solution.

 

I won't keep bashing on, if you want more help let me know, I can add things like Keyboard/mouse to my first build if you wish.
