    New PC Build

    If we are talking Intel only k and x CPUs are unlocked. But all Amd ryzen chips are unlocked and the x is just a factory over clock and a better cpu box cooler. So no point investing more money in the x models. I just took @TH3R34P3R s build and made it a bit more red and black + rgb ram. Couldn't find any red and black gpu. What is up with msi? More expensive now. I call it the "bling-bling tax" PCPartPicker part list: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/MV4n4q Price breakdown by merchant: https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/MV4n4q/by_merchant/ CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 2600 3.4 GHz 6-Core Processor (£141.82 @ Amazon UK) CPU Cooler: ARCTIC - Freezer 33 eSports ONE (Black/Red) CPU Cooler (£28.99 @ AWD-IT) Motherboard: MSI - B450 GAMING PRO CARBON AC ATX AM4 Motherboard (£120.69 @ CCL Computers) Memory: G.Skill - Trident Z RGB 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory (£124.11 @ Amazon UK) Storage: Crucial - MX500 500 GB 2.5" Solid State Drive (£61.98 @ Aria PC) Storage: Crucial - MX500 500 GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive (£62.99 @ Amazon UK) Video Card: Gigabyte - GeForce RTX 2060 6 GB GAMING OC Video Card (£369.98 @ Novatech) Case: NZXT - H500i (Black/Red) ATX Mid Tower Case (£97.99 @ AWD-IT) Power Supply: Corsair - CXM 550 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply (£70.68 @ Amazon UK) Monitor: Asus - VG248QE 24.0" 1920x1080 144 Hz Monitor (£209.99 @ CCL Computers) Keyboard: Corsair - K70 RAPIDFIRE Wired Gaming Keyboard (£104.99 @ Scan.co.uk) Mouse: Corsair - M65 PRO RGB FPS Wired Optical Mouse (£34.54 @ Amazon UK) Headphones: Kingston - HyperX Cloud II 7.1 Channel Headset (£69.99 @ Amazon UK) Total: £1498.74 Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available Generated by PCPartPicker 2019-01-17 18:47 GMT+0000

    New "high end" rig

    Don't wait until summer. My guess is we are talking August or September so 7 or 8 month down the line. I would not recommend to wait for hardware unless it is literally only a month or so. There will always be the next big thing half a year from now in technology. If you have decided what to get you might want to post your pcpp list here to get some feedback. There are people here who know random shit and they might save you from a bad vrm design or case / cooler dimensions not fitting.

    Does this build fit together?

    What games do you intend to play at what resolution/refresh rate. You could get it cheaper. Amd ryzen 5 2600 would be my suggestion. And I would not dump my money in an aio water cooler at that price point. Consider rx 580 8 gb/ gtx 1060 6 GB, whatever you can get for the lowest price. What is your max budget in your target currency (you are from Sweden?)? Do you need any Peripherals?

But the PSU is in stock and decent, and the 1060 has a lower Power consumption compared to the 580 for roughly the same performance.

    1st Time to Build PC

    Budget? Games only? What games? Resolution and refresh rate?

    New "high end" rig

    SLI is a waste of money in most cases. You don't get double performance, most of the time way below 50 % increase. Game dev. support is poor and there are other issues (in the past it was micro stutters if they are still a thing). If Nvidia is keeping its launch cycle we wont see a new GPU gen until late 2020, hopefully they get some pressure from AMD to push them a bit but probably not. So I am talking getting a 2080 that will fulfill your needs for the next 2 years, probably more and than just buy new. It will probably be cheaper and better than going SLI in a couple of years. And the 980 launch price was 550 $ the 2080 699 $, so not double, more like 25 % increase. No way of me knowing if you can see a trend here, but i doubt and hope they wont double the price.

    New Build will it work?

    I would not add the 2600X, just the cooler. Because the X is just a factory overlock for 45 £ and a good cooler and 3 min bios messing costs around 30 £ and you have a good cooler. Is mATX a must or are you ok with standard ATX? And usually the 2 or 3 fans a case comes with are enough if you do a budget build. No reason to build a wind machine I would rather have the CPU cooler and save the money on extra fans and RGB strip. I figure your budget is ~750 £? I don't know what the PSU costs.

    New Build will it work?

    Do you already own that board? The PSU is not in stock, try to find a EVGA G3 or Corsair TXM. Does this case come without fans or do you just want massiv airflow? Maybe get a CPU Cooler and OC the 2600 to 2600X performance

    Planing PC for my girlfriend

    Did you try turn it on again? Sometimes a Motherboard does this first not a boot thing. Also, try to only use 1 Ram stick in different slots. Sometimes a Slot is dead or might need to be reseated
  10. I would suggest a gamble to you. It is rumored that the upcomming ryzen 9 might be a 16c/32t chip. And it comes on the AM4 socket. If you get a B450 or X470 (if you need SLI but i don't think so) Motherboard paired with a first gen Ryzen 7 for now. Wou wont be to disappointed with the performance. It is still a capable 8c/16t CPU. This Build comes around 500 $ cheaper and you can swap the 1700 for a 3rd gen Ryzen this summer. The Noctua D15 is a overkill Cooler but we don't know heat performance of Ryzen 3, same for the 750 W PSU but i choose to leave a bit of head room. A 650 W would probably still be plenty. Also EVGA G3 > G2. This is somehow the gamble/"future proof" build. But even the upcoming Ryzen 7 are rumored to be 12c/24t so you would probably see threadripper performance for less money. If you don't need the extra PCIe lanes or quad channel RAM i think it is the better approach.

    Finally think I got it

    I am just going to ask questions here. Do you know what benefits you get from that 300 $ motherboard compared to a 180 $ mobo? Do you know why you need 2x m.2 ssds? Do you know why you take a 2700x over a 2700? Do you know why you need a 2080ti and 2080 won't fulfill your needs? (but I suppose you already bought that one?) Also the 4 ram stick issue, but it has been addressed. If you have good answers for those questions, I would say, go for it. But if not I would happily answer those for you and help you save a couple of bucks
  12. Manderis

    $5k budget build

    Any need for 10bit color? I doubt you need the premium of the 2080ti, the 2080 will be probably sufficient depending on how much vram your projects need. Pudget hardware recommendations for Premiere Depending on the upcoming reviews the Radeon VII with its 16 gb of hbm2 memory might be a great value for 699 $

    New "high end" rig

    I would suggest going with a 2080. This card will manage every game out there right now and be good for 2-3 years. If you don't feel like it fits your needs anymore sell it and buy a the next Gen gpu, maybe second or third highest tier (speaking nvidia 4080 or 4070 if they keep the name scheme). They will probably be a lot better (compare 980 vs 2080 and you see roughly double of the performance) and changing a gpu coast literally 5 minutes if you have never done it before and have two left hands. Someone who knows what he is doing will only need a minute.

    Need input on these specs

    I would probably try to save some money everywhere and would try to fit in a 24", 144 hz, free sync, 1080p monitor. Investing in the gaming experience. You would maybe have to step down a gpu tier but your overall setup would match better. Just out of my head go ryzen 2600 and save 80 $ on cpu, 40 $ on a cooler and 60 $ on the motherboard, take the 10 % or so performance hit and buy a monitor with the difference. You could save some more on case and ssd. Maybe even get 1440p gaming. When I am at home I will make you a config. But maybe @LukeSavenijehas something for you
