Building a new BI5 computer Part 1 CPU selection

Post by JVH » Tue Nov 17, 2020 7:51 pm

Hi all,
MY current system is long in the tooth and with a socket 1155 it is very limited in cpu choices.
So I thought I would start some threads discussing choices to build a new system.
The first thing I am looking at is what cpu.
Obviously I am thinking Intel so I get Quick Sync.
I am thinking a 10th-generation Core i9 cpu using the socket 2066.
So I am curious about the price to power ratio.
It looks like the chips range from $600 - $1000.

So is it necessary to go bleeding edge with 10th gen?
Or is 9th Gen with socket 1151 just as good for running a DVR.
I see that there is also a socket 1200 out there.

Thanks


My next topic will probably be on motherboards.

IMHO... Get the biggest and fastest that fits your budget.

As MikeBwca said, get the fastest CPU that your budget allows. You can never have too much processing power.

OK, Thanks. I agree.
So I am getting an Intel I9.
There appear to be three sockets available with different chipset support.
LGA 1151
LGA 2066
LGA 1200

Does anyone have any info on the differences and why to choose one over the others?

Thanks

Is the system going to be dedicated to BI?

MoBos/Chipsets with extra PCI lanes and USB 3.0 ports would be less useful. And if you get a 'k' model CPU that can be overclocked make sure your chipset supports overclocking.

The only difference for the sockets themselves is the pin count: socket 1151 has 1151 pins, and socket 2066 has 2066 pins. There is no difference between their performances,
