Does my soon to be setup look Ok?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So hopefully in a couple of months I will be building a custom pc that will be used for gaming and video/picture editing. I am pretty tech savvy, but when it comes to certain computer parts... I am not the best person to ask. So here is my list and if there is something better that might be just a few dollars more or even less let me know please! P.S. I also put Amazon links for everyone :)

CPU – i7 6700k 4.00 GHz (https://amzn.to/2UHD2yL)
MOBO – MSI PRO Series Intel 8th Gen LGA 1151 M.2 Z370 (https://amzn.to/2OdGSx2)
RAM – Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (https://amzn.to/2U0YbXO)
GPU – MSI GAMING GeForce GTX 2060 6GB (https://amzn.to/2W9D9DA)
SSD – Samsung 860 EVO 500GB 2.5 Inch (https://amzn.to/2Tfm2OL)
HDD – WD Blue 1TB PC Hard Drive 7200 RPM (https://amzn.to/2H8XQaU)
POWER SUPPLY – EVGA SuperNOVA 750 G3 80+ Gold 750W (https://amzn.to/2CFNIEw)
CPU COOLER – NZXT Kraken M22 120mm All-in-One RGB CPU Liquid Cooler (https://amzn.to/2JnmRpk)
WIFI ADAPTER – Asus PCI Wireless Express Adapter (https://amzn.to/2W4Lad4)
CASE – NZXT H500i White & Black (https://amzn.to/2FlFJ3O)

6700K is not compatible with Z370. Z370 is compatible with everything CoffeeLake to current.

 

Another thing to note is that you chose DDR3 which is not compatible with the 6700K or Z370. There are exceptions to this, however your selections are not exceptions.

Use pcpartpicker to make lists. It will tell you what is compatible

Then what should I replace the CPU, should I do AMD, maybe? Also I added the wrong RAM to the list, I made this on Word a little while ago and I changed the ram because of it being ddr3. I will fix that

Uh no

 

CPU – isn't compatible with the mobo
MOBO – kinda crappy for that price tbh
RAM – is for a different platform and too generic
GPU – a ripoff considering what it is, you could get a 1070Ti or an used 1080 for that amount
SSD – same as graphics card, a Crucial MX500 beats the shit out of it and costs like what? half the price? haven't seen samsung prices in a while
HDD – ok
POWER SUPPLY – overkill for those components, there are better, like a G2 or a Focus Plus
CPU COOLER – shitty and expensive, can't wait anything else from NZXT though.
WIFI ADAPTER – I don't personally recommend it, go for cable if you want speed and stability
CASE – oven type, sealed with no way for air to get inside, another straight ripoff but again not surprised at all.

 

now the build, you could go either a midrange 9th gen which is still in the bad price/performance range or a ryzen 5 or 7, I take you're looking for a midrange pc for games and stuff so a 2600 with a 1070Ti could be what you're looking for, add a B450 board to that, a 550W power supply, you don't need a cooler so it's cheaper, 3000MHz memory on dual channel (2 8GB sticks is the standard for games and multitasking nowadays)

OR the 9th gen that would include a i5-9400 and a H370/B360 board (since the CPU is locked anyway) 

I'll let the others get into pcpartpicker and list specific parts


ASUS X470-PRO • R7 1700 4GHz • Corsair H110i GT P/P • 2x MSI RX 480 8G • Corsair DP 2x8 @3466 • EVGA 750 G2 • Corsair 730T • Crucial MX500 250GB • WD 4TB

It depends on what workloads you plans on having. Is it Adobe suites? Are you planning on using plugins and what kind of load types have? Another is factoring in what your budget is.

 

You are going to have to be more specific in your planned use case because it could benefit you more to go Intel or AMD depending your workloads and what is most important to you. Also the same can be said for the GPU in regards to AMD and NVidia.

I will be using most of the Adobe programs + Vegas Pro. And some gaming

Intel or AMD?

 

the easy way of choosing would be:

Intel if you want to game, render in 3D or CAD, compress files and stuff like that and want the best performance, it's more expensive than AMD

AMD if you'll game and do multitasking (having multiple programs running at the same time), it's usually cheaper

Which one? The original one or the one you made and I edited

the one you edited

 

didn't knew what case so I just chose one with nice airflow, check if it includes fans otherwise you should add at least 3, two intakes at the front and one exhaust at the back

120mm fans are the standard but 140mm ones tend to be quieter and perform better

I think this is my final decision, pcpartpicker says everything is compatible and it is all within my price! If there is anything that is not compatible that I will want to change but everything else I want to keep.

Nice

 

1. Personally I'd choose a 110i GT/X over a new cooler simply because of the price/performance ratio, you'll be paying like 20 more bucks just a refreshed look, also the pump on the older models was better

And the fans... I dunno, at least for me looks overkill, I mean you get two fans with the cooler that will push air through the radiator from the front part of the case course (top mounting is horrible in general) and have two top exhausts (and no rear fan for neutral pressure)

2. au contraire to popular belief, the graphics card temp will not increase by 10C because of the front mounted radiator, you'll get like 2 or 3 degrees more which is OK for a graphics card that can work perfectly fine up to 90C

3. cooling is about efficiency and depends more on how the case is built than the amount of fans, my pc has only 3 fans, everything works smoothly, noise is barely audible and temps are great but that's because the case is huge, yours will be smaller thus having 2 fans on top will work better than having a single rear fan like me

 

The graphics card will blow most of the heat through the rear so don't worry if the case and cables gets a bit hot on that area
