New computer to replace my old build that is 6+ years old now.
Two configurations I am looking at are X99 motherboard, I7 5820K with DDR4 RAM vs Z97 motherboard, I7 4790K with DDR3 RAM. Both setups with something like the GTX 760 or R9 270X or 280 graphics card.
500 GB solid state drive that I will purchase now/soon to use on my current machine until I get all the parts for the new one. Get 2 x 5 TB internal drives for storage and backup.
With costs being a factor I will have to skimp a bit more on some of the parts if I get the newest stuff compared to the DDR3 RAM setup.
