Time for my 5th DS build (3 desktop, 2 laptop) as my Velox 6700K with 1080 is holding me back (although is still purrs like a kitten).


Budget:
5K-6K

Usage:
primarily 4K flight simulation with MSFS and P3Dv6(?)

Put together this system...

Boost Processor: Stage 2: Overclock CPU - Up to 5.1GHz on All CPU Cores
Boost Graphics Card(s): - No Thanks, Please do not overclock my video card(s)

Priority Build: - No Thanks, Ship Within 10-15 Business Days After Order Is Successfully Processed

Thoughts? Should I go for the i9-13900K?

The proc IMO will be just fine for the next 5+ years. Ditch the overclock! It will turbo up to 5.1GHz whenever the need arises, and the heat generated by running full bore all the time may well shorten life span.

You're gonna have some fun with this system.
