My first pc build - gaming and streaming - $2500.00 budget

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi.  I am building my first pc.  I will be using it for gaming and streaming to twitch from the same pc while also capturing video for youtube videos with the capture card.  I will also use it for video editing and web design work.  I plan to game on a 27" 1440p 165hz monitor with two 23" 1080p 60hz monitors to the left and right of the main monitor.  I want the stream quality to be really good.  My gaming sessions are likely to be 12+ hours at a time so I want air flow and the cooling to be a priority in the pc.  I do not know if I will be overclocking but I do want the option to in the future if needed.

 

I have made a few posts here on the forums to try to put together a really good build.  What do you think of this?  Any recommendations of different parts? 

 

Thanks!

Check for intel M.2 the intel 660p, got one 500gb for 85$CAD a week ago. Might want to check for an AIO cooler, I'll let more experienced builders gives argument on this one, since I'm not sure those are really better... But u can slack on the 3200 Ram, ryzen do scale with faster ram, but intel doesnt really care, found some 3000 for 170$  CAD, 30$ right there for some fans if there's none included with your case!

Thank you for the recommendations.  I will look into that but I am pretty set on the samsung 970 plus ssd now.  I also want the 3200 speed ram.  It is only a little less for a lower speed.  The case does have fans.

The Dark Rock Pro 4 looks nicer. If you don't mind the Noctua colour scheme then switch back to the D15.

 

A 650W psu is enough. 

 

WD Black NVMe SSD is a good SSD and the 500GB version is not much more than the 250GB 970 EVO.

Thank you.  I do not mind the look of the d15.  The performance is the priority with the pc.  I am really leaning towards using a seasonic and someone here recommended a seasonic prime and the 750w is about the same price as the 650w but I will keep that in mind.

 

I will look into the wd ssd that you recommended.  Thanks.

The NH-D15 is a suboptimal choice as the outer fan in its normal mounting position typically overhangs the out two memory slots. This restricts modules in those slots to 32mm. Not a factor in the initial build, but does restrict options should a memory upgrade prove necessary. You might consider the Dark Rock Pro 4. It has sufficient clearance for Ripjaws V memory modules in all four slots. Performance differences are marginal.

 

If you would like to save a bit on the psu the SeaSonic FOCUS PLUS 850 Gold or Corsair RM750x (2018) would be excellent choices.

 

If budget permits, you might consider replacing the 2TB hdd with a 2TB ssd.
