Hello, boys and girls, welcome to the last episode System Builders Guide for January 2015. We’re officially into the high-end market now, having dewlled enough in the peasantry of the sub-R20,000 builds. Once again Intel rules the roost here and a few price drops make the Core i7-5820K and the X99 platform all the more viable for enthusiasts, especially if you’re not afraid to shell out some cash for decent DDR4 memory. One change was made across the rest of the board though – dropping Nvidia’s GTX 970. Although the card would have been a straight recommendation here, recent issues with the mixed memory pools still deserve some investigation, particularly after Nvidia’s promised driver patch to fix any lingering issues. AMD’s Radeon R9 290 takes its place temporarily, though you can be sure that Nvidia’s will return in the March edition of the System Builder’s Guide. On to the builds!
