    I don’t personally have any experience with them, but their nickname on these forums is Deepcool/Deadcool.

    Here is a decent build made with pretty good parts, good for many years to come. NVMe SSD will give you pretty much the fastest boot time you can get. There's also no unnecessary features like rgb etc as your use case seems to lean to having a more subtle pc.
     
    And... ITS ONLY 500USD! what a great time to build a PC.

    star_pilot475 reacted to ManyCoresGuy in Do I need a RAM upgrade?   
    Depends on what games you play. Also if you tend to multitask, i would strongly recommend going to 16GB. Chrome on its own uses a lot of memory (Assuming you use chrome browser).

    Get a R5 3600 on a b450 instead, better CPU and better value.

    star_pilot475 got a reaction from Nik schaad in laptop upgrade info needed   
    As long as you know your laptop supports more ram and you have a slot open on your motherboard, I'd recommend the upgrade. 4GB of ram is barely enough to do anything anymore, another 4 would probably help a lot. 
     
    edit: one reason for upgrading would be multitasking. 8gbs would make it so you can have multiple tasks running without your laptop freezing up or acting slow. (Although if it does, it s because of the CPU)

    star_pilot475 reacted to NunoLava1998 in Ready to buy?   
    It's compatible, but there are some shitty build decisions:
    Get a 3700X, 3800X or 3900X, don't get the 9900K; costs more, more heat, no CPU cooler included, etc etc. 750W isn't needed H150i isn't needed 4400MHz memory? WTF This will perform the same (if not better) for the same money:

    That's as close as I could get it, without greatly sacrificing on parts. You'd have to save up and buy an HDD later on if you need more space.
    Most parts are available on Amazon for a couple pound more.
     
    Honestly, I'd strongly suggest buying used. Your budget doesn't really allow for a decent system.

    star_pilot475 reacted to lee32uk in Building my first PC, any advices ?   
    If you swap a few things around you can get a better screen which is Freesync but also supports Nvidia gpu's. The B450 Tomahawk MAX is a good board and there is a separate wifi adapter included. The Crucial ram is great value for money, as is the Sabrent Rocket SSD and Arctic Freezer cooler.

    I’d go for the 3600 and upgrade your cooling if need be down the line. You always want to go for more performance than flashy looks with an AIO. Maybe you can pick up a Hyper 212 or something like that for cheap to cool the 3600.

    Don’t bother with the 9900k. It’s about the same price as the 3900X but at this point not worth it. (In my opinion, others may disagree) 
     
    This would play every title you throw at it at ultra settings with fantastic frame rates. Do you need a monitor or peripherals included in the $2500 budget?

    You can pull off a pretty ballin' rig for $2500. Made some changes for you, went for a black with hints of RGB aesthetic. The 3900X will give you some future proofing, that’s why I left it in. Beefier CPU cooler to match the theme of the build, faster ram, more ssd storage, different case (again to match theme, but you can change it to whatever) and a different power supply.
