516 - Sasha's Computer Build

#20
Since we decided in chat to switch to the more widely supported CPU, here are my updated recommendations for what is affected by that change...

Processor is now the Intel I7-7700k ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01MXS...=cat5tv-20 ).

The Motherboard is switch to an ASUS ROG MAXIMUS ( https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01JCX...=cat5tv-20 ). This has great sound built in, and M.2 port to keep the same SSD for the host OS, and a great little debugger built in to help diagnose problems. Well worth the few extra dollars compared to alternative comparable motherboards. Plus, free mousepad. The RAM then becomes a single 16GB stick from Kingston ( https://www.amazon.com/Kingston-Technolo...B01D8U2BX2 ). I chose this since 16GB is the minimum for VR and this leaves you 3 open slots for more memory later. Going dual-channel (with 2x8GB) isn't going to net you enough benefit on performance to justify it. Keep your extra slots open for later use. You can go with a simple Thermaltake air cooler ( https://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Conta...=cat5tv-20 ) that is advertised as silent. So that should help some with sound output. And since the CPU, Mobo, and Cooler saved extra dough, upgrade the GPU to a 6GB memory one ( https://www.amazon.com/ZOTAC-GeForce-ZT-...=cat5tv-20 ) for an improved VR/4K experience.
