Need a second opinion

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm just starting my first PC build and I'm having some trouble making sure I have everything I need. I don't know if the power supply is enough but I would appreciate advice to make sure all is well before I start buying

 

My build so far

The power supply should be enough, however I noticed the GPU doesn't have a price. Do you already have that GPU?

I changed the RAM to 16GB (you only need 32GB if you're doing stuff like video editing), added an SSD, changed the cooler and changed the motherboard.


I'm not liable for anything that may happen to you and your PC if you decide to follow my advice. Take everything I say with a grain of salt, some things may not be correct.

You're missing an SSD


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

What is this build for?  What resolution and what refresh rate?

 

32 GB RAM is fine for video editing, but won't offer any benefit over 16 GB for gaming.

 

You need a SSD.

Surprising that isn't true anymore. There is actually a performance advantage to have 32gb over 16gb in gaming. Now if that difference is big enough to justify the cost is up to you.

Thanks a ton for that. I mostly use my of for gaming so the small touches help. And the GPU doesn't have a price for some reason but I found it elsewhere. But thank you for the updated list.
