Can you guys check over my build?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, 

 

After many, many revisions this is what I've come to. Do you guys have any recommendations? Will the cpu cooling be adequate? BTW, I want to mount the cpu colling rad on the top, so, if I change the size of the rad I have to change the case. I'm right on the tip of my budget here, I can't really afford to spend even 30 quid more. I'm going to get an SSD in the near future.

Any help is greatly appreciated 

Thanks

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play MTGA & watch anime at 720p...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee! The Cassette Deck!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016

Added small SSD, but as I said I will get a larger one (probably an M. 2) in the near future.

are you basing your choice for that graphics card on the boost clock numbers on scan.co.uk?

(if so then heres the same numbers on a cheaper card (£190 cheaper): https://www.scan.co.uk/products/gigabyte-aorus-geforce-rtx-2080-ti-xtreme-11gb-gddr6-vr-ready-graphics-card-4352-core-1770mhz-core-c)

 

but still, why that specific 2080ti graphics card? wouldnt any 2080Ti do? (im playing devils advocate here, humour me...)

There's nothing "wrong" with the build... but personally I would wait to see what Zen 2 brings, and definitely wouldn't drop £1400 on a GPU, but that's my personal preference.


Please quote my post, or put @paddy-stone if you want me to respond to you, I may not see your post otherwise.

I found that the cards with the highest overclock were the Lightning Z and the FTW 3. They are around the same price except the MSI has a screen on the side. There for, the Lightning Z is better value. 

 

Also, the fact that I can say "my gpu clocks above 2000 Mhz" 🙂

lol, yeah ok I can respect that. It's alot of money spent for bragging writes but go for it if you want.

just bear in mind the extra cost here vs the "ooo lookie, it purdy nice" factor 😂

 

hmm, lets see, what else....

why not go for a 80+ Gold Power supply instead of a Platinum Grade, theres not really much difference in terms of efficiency.

I'm told the Lightning Z needs to have an efficient power supply, every little helps.

Only just saw reply. sorry, forgot to refresh first.

Well I'd personally say 80+gold would be enough, especially with a SeaSonic powersupply.

You dont get better than those guys, and these 2 are cheaper.

That build is all over the place.

 

The Lightning isn't going to give you £300 of extra performance over any other 2080 ti. The Gigabyte Gaming OC has a longer warranty of 4 years, and UK RMA support. 

 

So £260 or so cheaper overall with a 1TB SSD and 2TB HDD and a better cooler. 

 

You don't need a Platinum psu. Not sure where you heard that info from but it is wrong.

I thought as much 👍

 

could he get a cheaper Z390 motherboard? should he stick with the Gigabyte? thoughts?

The Corsair unit will be a lot quieter. 

 

Any of the Aorus boards are fine. If he wants wifi then the one in the spec is good.
