New builder who dis?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Alright so I haven't built a gaming rig yet but a friend asked me to make one. He hasn't given me a budget yet but I played around with PC part picker and I've made a few configurations and I would greatly appreciate some advice.

Rule number 1, dont start without a budget


The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros

All of them are flawed

 

All of these CPUs are overclockable, yet not all the boards are. Intel require Z, P or X chipset (Z370 and Z390 for 8350k), AMD Ryzen requires B and X.

 

Single stick of memory means you're limited to single channel, effectively about 60% the bandwidth of dual channel (runs with two or more sticks on these platforms). Bad.

 

Weak cooler for the 8350k

 

Kingston A400 and other DRAMless SSDs are all the slower bunch of SSDs, and SSDs slow down even further and degrade faster as they run lower on available space. With current prices anything smaller than 240gb is unacceptable for a gaming rig imo

 

PSUs are all rubbish

 

and I haven't checked pricing and performance on individual parts yet. Will comment further when you actually have a set budget

2400mhz single channel ram with Ryzen that's a big oof. 100% of the gaming builds I do today especially Ryzen have atleast 16GB 2x8GB 3000mhz ram especially now that it's so cheap.

Uh, this build is around double the cost of OPs.

OP didn’t give a budget. 

 

Just merely showing him what other possibilities there are.

Why 2400G? Do you need the integrated graphics?

Why a X470 board for a lower-end Ryzen 5?

Dual channel is good, but you can get 3000mhz RAM for about the same money

SSD are faster the more space you have, 120GB is what people hate themselves because Windows already eats almost half of that

3GB VRAM gonna be a bit of a pain to game on

Corsair VS is trash, and why the heck is it that expensive anyway

 

For that money you could do easily do this

Nothing too flashy, but this is a CPU step up and a comparable GPU to your 2400G Ryzen build for a better price:

 

I included a particularly cheapo case, which I don't particularly think looks great, but it does cost almost nothing, has USB 3.0 and a panel, and includes both intake and exhaust fans for those real budgeters.

I apologize for not including a price point and more detail... I've definitely learned A LOT from all of you and I'm going to implement these changes and post back my results. Thanks to all of you for your help!

When you post back please either post the permalink (left above the build list) or use the [bb] button (center above list) and paste the result. Makes it much easier to review the builds, especially on mobile devices.

I think this is a pretty solid improvement... I was going for $600 usd for a lower end gaming rig I started a ryzen 3 1200 3.1ghz with an overclockable board, 3000mhz ram in duel channel(it might suck to upgrade later but it wasn't in the price point I sought after), a better cached ssd, and a better suited card (the zotac gtx 1060 6gb to avoid bottlenecking, and a better power supply by corsair  with 80+ bronze. Thoughts?

Swapped GTX1060 for a RX580, performs a tiny bit better while having 2GB more VRAM

Also swapped out the PSU for something much better. 

Its about $20 more, but at least you won't have to care about the PSU for a couple of years when you want to upgrade.

Alright I've also revised the I-3 8350k build and it'll be a higher end intel build... I'm not entirely confident on this one so criticism is encouraged.

You overpaid for the PSU, and the i3 only has 4 cores.

9400F, you get 6 cores, you can't overclock it so the stock cooler would suffice (although still recommend to get a cheap air cooler, Noctua is the among the best brands)

Cheaper RAM, Intel isn't as sensitive to high speed RAM as AMD Ryzen so 3000 is perfectly fine.

Swapped out for a better motherboard as well since the CPU is now a 9th gen.

Seasonic PSU once again.

GTX1660 Ti beats the RX590. You can fit in a RTX2060 as well if you want ray-tracing but that is still a bit of a mess.

Ryzen 7 stock cooler is good enough for OC, you OC the 2700 to the same speed as a 2700X and it will leave the 1800X in the dust.

32GB of RAM is overkill unless you're editing videos/rendering or some other heavy workstation stuff

RX 590 is well beaten by the GTX1600 Ti

1660Ti is a pretty awful card for a $1000 build.

1700x and Vega 56

 

or

1600 and 2070. 

 

For both builds, you should overclock to around 3.8-4 and that will help a lot.
