    you're better off going with an i7 8700 and B360 board instead of an 8600k with low-end cooler and motherboard. thermal paste isn't needed either. the monitor has displayport and HDMI cables already included. get a PCI-e WiFi adaptor instead.

    Are you sure it comes with a display cable because I didn't see it state that and I will try. Are my parts compatible and I have seen good reviews on my CPU Cooler, think I should upgrade?

    The 'puter is meant for gaming and maybe some light rendering. I've already bought the cooler, GPU and motherboard on sale. The cooler is definitely overkill, but got if for cheaper than the 120mm version, so win-win i guess? Might switch out the motherboard for a Z-version and get the i7-8700k? That might end up in a gpu bottleneck tho. Reason i chose the i7 over the i5-5600k is because i'm not confident with having a overclocked cpu at all times, and the i7 is faster stock.

    Agreed however if you want to save money and downgrade you can barely tell a difference when gaming.

    Heyo guys, so i'm going to build my first desktop beauty in a couple of weeks and have some questions that needs solving. I got the final partlist right here. And no, please don't flip your shit when you see the case. It's literally one of the 3 cases i can pick up in my local store, and it's the best choice i've got atm. Might buy the mesh front if temps get problematic. I'm debating with myself if i need the G2 powersupply, or just go for the 20$ cheaper GQ version. Heard the G2 version is a safer bet, higher quality and longer lasting? And also, the riser cable is for bling only, got it for free from a friend.


    Anybody of you pro's see any flaws in my list?

    Are you using this for gaming or rendering? Also are you on a budget because if so and would like to upgrade the rest of your pc the i5-5600k unclocked is good for gaming but when overclocked can compete with an i7 for much cheaper.

    Yes, all of those parts are compatible. And yes, the H500i is a nice case, from a company well known for making cases that allow for tidy cable management. As for the monitor, I am running a 1070 with a 1ms 1080P 144Hz monitor, so a 1080 will probably be fine. However, if you want to get the most out of your 1080 or 1080 TI (whichever you decide to go with), and still have a 60+ Hz monitor, I'd recommend either a ~120Hz 1440P monitor, or a 240Hz 1080P monitor, since high refresh rate 4K monitors are LUDICROUSLY priced. As for possible downgrades, an 8600K is great for gaming, even when not overclocked, and a 1080 or 1080 TI is also great for gaming, so we don't need to change those. And yes, you will get the most out of a FreeSync monitor if you have an AMD GPU. If you don't want to think about it too much: just target the refresh rate of your monitor, and don't bother with FreeSync.

    Think I will stick with the 144hz 1ms 1080p with the gtx 1080 and upgrade my monitor in the future since I can literally not spend anymore money.

    I could downgrade to a 1070 ti and have a lot of spare money to upgrade my monitor etc but I am thinking a 1080 would be better in the long run.

    ...well, I was crazy. It was a previous list that I made showing, not yours. Now that's sorted out... it's good. The 8600K, when overclocked, can match (or possibly even beat, if you get lucky) an 8700K. Based on the reviews, the CPU cooler and motherboard seem ready to handle overclocking, so that's nice. The memory kit is 16GB AND dual channel AND at a high speed, so no need to change that. I'm assuming that storage will be enough for you, the case looks solid, and the power supply will definitely be able to handle your parts, since that PC but with an 8700K will draw at most 550W.


    No major complaints. I'd say go ahead and order this.

    Thanks for the feedback, so you think everything is compatible seen a few posts about people ordering the wrong things and I don't want to wait if I forget to order something. Making sure I get wireless adapters, any cables needed etc. I went for the H500i because of the built in RGB to save money on aesthetic's and the cable management. I might be going overkill with the 1080 since I am going to be using a 144hz 1ms monitor that can only play 1080p which I am fine with but can happily downgrade to upgrade other parts but I would like to keep it for future monitor upgrades etc. Its a freesync monitor and sometimes I have heard stuff about screen tearing with nvidia gpu's but apparently it's fine when freesync is off, any input on that?

    My bad, thought you forgot the randomly generated bit, haha. Trust me, the possible downgrade in aesthetics and water cooling support will be worth it for the upgrade in performance. Nothing to complain about here, really. Some other people might be a bit more critical than me, but I don't see anything terribly wrong with it.

    My bad updated the link, have a look now.

    I assume you have all the other parts for your PC? Specifically, the CPU, CPU cooler, motherboard, memory, storage, case, and power supply?


    The peripherals and wireless adapter are fine, though.


    P.S, after looking through the UK version of eBay, I found some 1080 TI's for a bit less. Go with those, unless I'm seeing things.

    Could of looked around a bit more but I love the model and the watercooling system, if so I will definitely go for the 1080 ti. Yes the PCPartPicker has everything apart from the GPU have a look.

    Nah, that doesn't matter, screen tearing will happen anyways. If you can't afford, you can't afford. It ain't that big of a deal, but it's nicer, I think. Living with some old LG monitor for the past 9 years.

    I can avoid screen tearing but turning down the Hz?

  9. Just now, Yifti said:

    Freesync puts out screen tearing for AMD GPU's. G-sync is the same but better for Nvidia cards. G-sync helps very much as well as freesync, but G-sync is way better.

    If I am on a budget is that monitor still good or not?

    I know you said on a budget, but if you can add 200$ that would be great. Getting a 1070ti without a G-sync monitor doesn't make sense. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dell-S2417DG-Gaming-Monitor-Nvidia/dp/B01KZIOSSQ/ref=sr_1_41?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1536956055&sr=1-41&keywords=g+sync+monitor&refinements=p_36%3A428448031

    So expensive for a 24 inch, not looking to spend that much on a monitor, is a 144hz 1ms monitor not go well with a 1070 ti ?

    So £1500 for the tower, monitor, keyboard, mouse mat and wifi adapter ? You already have a mouse ?

    At the moment everything apart from a cpu fan adds up to around adds up to 1.25k GBP and the monitor being 211, kb being 70 and mouse being 48
