rate this rgb build

Recommended Posts

That PSU is real expensive compared to the rest of the build, you could definitely spring for less wattage at least. That model is also overpriced, it's tier C on our forum's tier list (click my PSU in my signature below to learn more) so maybe get a Corsair CX or something instead.

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)

 

Feel free to critique my website. I am but a young entrepreneur.

you could get better performance with a slightly lower end motherboard and a cheaper ( but not cheap ) PSU and put the money to a better graphics card ( rx 580 or something similar )

I'd suggest a better performing cpu for Photoshop.The 2700X includes an Aura Sync compatible RGB cooler.

 

Ryzen cpu do better with faster memory.

 

A more powerful gpu will improve gaming and Photoshop accelerations. If you have more budget a more powerful gpu would be better. Something around a Vega 54 or GTX 1060 seems to be the sweet spot.

 

I believe that a less expensive case with Aura Sync compatible RGB is a better fit.

 

As others have noted, there is no need for a 650W psu.
