No experience, first build

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, so I’ve always wanted to build a pc. I’ve never really got into it enough to know what I’m doing or what components I really need for what I want to build. 

 

Anyway, I’m aiming for something that can handle 4K FPS games along with 4K racing games like forza then eventually upgrading to something that can handle VR. 

Along with gaming, I will also be using it to edit 4K videos quite often. 

 

Components

I don’t have anything except for a 

‘be quiet! BGW21 Pure Base 600’ case. I don’t know if the rest of the listed components will even fit in here or if they’re compatible with each other etc.. ideally, the smaller the final cost the better but this it what I got so far. Please let me know any advice.

 

I plan to get (all from Best Buy) [California, USA] 

 

CORSAIR - Vengeance LPX 16GB (2PK x 8GB) 3.2 GHz DDR4 DRAM Desktop Memory Kit - Black

EVGA - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 Ti SC Gaming 8GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card - Black

EVGA - 1000W ATX /EPS 80 Plus Gold Modular Power Supply - Black

MSI - MPG Z390 GAMING EDGE AC (Socket LGA1151) USB 3.1 Gen 1 Intel Motherboard with LED Lighting

WD - Performance 4TB Internal Serial ATA Hard Drive for Desktops

Intel - Core i7-9700K Octa-Core 3.6 GHz Desktop Processor

Total bill with all that stuff is $1,559.93 not including the windows 10 pro OS, mouse/keyboard and a 4K 60Hz monitor. 

 

again, I have no idea if all of this stuff will work with each other or if I don’t have enough gpu or something for what I’m trying to do. I’m open to all suggestions and appreciate the help you guys provide!

 

 

BUDGET: 2K for complete system

I am willing to give up 4k gaming for the mean time if I can't fit it in the budget but I still want to game at least 1080P on highest settings.

If you want to game in 4k, you need to aim higher for the GPU, atleast GTX1080 or better 1080ti. 1070ti will not cut it unless you want to play on low/medium settings.

PSU if an overkill. Get a high end 750W PSU and it will be everything you will ever need. EVGA 750W G2 or GQ model, both are high end 80+ Gold.

Welcome to the fourm,

 

I would definitely start by heading over to pcpartpicker.com and putting your stuff into your build and that will check if your things are compatible. I would also recommend you to open yourself to retailers such as Amazon and Newegg (those are the only online retailers that I personally use) as that will allow you to get more reasonably priced items. Read the pinned post in this section of the forum for the posting format in the future, and you should probably reply answering those questions in the pinned post. (Although the only one you really didn't answer was the budget one.

Might I ask why you’re limited to Best Buy? Amazon and newegg usually have better prices

Swap CPU and motherboard for a r5 2600 + a B450 Tomahawk and then get a better GPU. The CPU and GPU pairing just isnt right for this tier build. Also get a cheaper PSU

Throwing in a much better build for your usecase. 9000 series is not worth it unless you are going all out with the GPU.

Core i9 should never be paired with a 1070 when doing stuff in 4K for obvious reasons. R5 is all related to not knowing what budget he was working with.

I'm trying to stay roughly under 2k I guess. If I can't game in 4k I'll be willing to game in 1080 until I can upgrade later on.

PSU is on sale for $99 right now so might as well get something that could possibly handle upgrades in the future haha

This one is $1825 including the case u already have. so it would be less then $1750.
Let me explain my choices so people can maybe correct me.

 

CPU: the Ryzen 7 2700X is atm the best bang for the buck  consumer workstation CPU.
CPU Cooler: A big air cooler to keep all those cores cold.
Motherboard: I recommend the B450 chipset. Also i put an MSI in the list, many people say they arent any good, but I only have good experiences with the brand.
Memory: any 2x8GB 3200MHz kit is fine. there are lots of brands that hover around that $130 mark.
Storage: This is rather a personal choice, I am a samsung SSD fan, they are the best, but they are a little more expensive. For the HDD I like that little extra performance of the WD Blacks over a $15 cheaper seagate. I Guess storage options are rather personal. But at least get a 250B SSD and some decent amount of storage.
Video Card: The 2080 should be able to run MOST games in 4k at high settings. I dont have experience with these but i did some googling. maybe someone else can give btter advice on this one.
Case: the one u got ofc
PSU: the one you said you were going to buy, rather great deal tho.
