Hello. I’m looking for feedback and recommendations on a build I am planning.
I would like to stay in the $1200 USD range.
I need a rig that is capable of gaming, streaming and video editing. I am a YT content creator for a mobile game. I primarily game on my iPad, but plan on expanding to PC games. So having a single PC that I can game and stream on would be ideal.
My current set up is just not sufficient for my needs. I have been in the Apple ecosystem for several years now and my current computer is an iMac quad core i5 with a GeForce 670 GPU, 8GB Ram. I have already purchased an Elgato HD60 S+ as a capture card, since I will need it to capture my iPad for OBS on a PC.
I plan on initially just using a 1080p 75hz single monitor until I can pick up a better one to actually game on, and switch the 75hz monitor as a second monitor for OBS and chat. I do not plan to OC.
Below is what I am thinking of building. I have built PCs in the past, but the last one I built was in 1998. Much has changed. So any advice is welcome.
Ryzen 7 3700x - More cores to help with streaming and video editing.
ASUS ROG Strix B450- Low cost, Ryzen 3000 ready, plenty of needed I/O
G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 16GB 3200- top speed for board, plan to expand to 32GB in the future
MSI GeForce RTX 2070- same price as 2060 Super but slightly better, NVENC for streaming
Intel 660p Series M.2 NVMe 512GB SSD- boot drive for windows and my editing software
Seagate Barracuda 2TB 7200RPM 256MB Cache- for media and game storage
EVGA BQ 600 W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-modular ATX Power Supply- semi modular, meets the projected 365 watt need of components. I do not plan to do any OC.
