Brand new Ryzen processors very soon, if you can wait just a few more weeks there's a lot to look forward to. 


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 - Asus DirectCU GTX 760 - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

i would wait like he said a few weeks, the prices for a ryzen 2600 will drop and you will get a better deal on it. 

 

Let us know what you plan on doing with the computer and we could help you out with a list.

I'm going to assume you want to run 1080p at high refresh rates, since this is your first PC. R5 is a very good processor, but like @fasauceome said, I would wait for the next generation. You don't need a 2060 for 1080p. A 1660 or RX 580 would do the trick for way less money. Please inform the thread on the purpose of the PC so we could better help you.


CPU: Intel i7-7700K 4.2 GHz / CPU Cooler: Cryorig H7  / Board: ASRock Z270 Taichi / GPU: Nvidia 1060 6gb EVGA SC / GPU Cooler: NZXT Kraken G12 with Thermaltake Water 3.0 120mm RAM: White Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 2666 MHz SSD: 2x Samsung 850 Evo 250 and 3TB WD blue HDD / PSU: Corasir 550cx / Case: NZXT s340 Elite White 

Peep out my "About Me" section for some ideas for builds for first time builders!

 

I remember when I hired Jon Hamm to voice a plate of scallops, for 30 seconds.

Not just 1080p would like 1440p 60fps or around there

I found two monitors for around $300, one is a 144hz 1ms for my gaming ($200) and another LG 60hz as another ($99). would the setup look bad with two different monitors?

If it’s around another 4 weeks of waiting I can probably get another $300 towards the build.
