CPU: INTEL 6TH GENERATION CORE I7 6700K
We’re going with the best-darned gaming CPU on the market for our RTS box. It’s only four cores, but we can’t think of any competitive RTS games that need the extra cores offered by Intel’s Haswell-E CPUs. It also includes Hyper Threading, and has a maximum Turbo speed of 4.2GHz. The K means it’s overclockable, but we’d suggest keeping it at stock speed, as you really don’t want your PC to crash mid-match.
