Should I Wait For Amazon Prime Day? (and newegg equivalent)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So this is my first pc build I have ever done. I have built plenty of computers for my friends and family but this is the first one I will build for my self.

My question is given my current build I am going to get --->

 

Do you think I should wait for these days or just order it now? I have been waiting so long for this and I kinda don't want to wait longer than this if I do not have to.

And feel free to rate the build and offer any suggestions if you would like. I am open to any ideas you guys may have!

Thank you!!

Get the cpu now since that's not going on sale after being released last week. That specific power supply might not go on sale, but other 750w golds might.  Everything else, it doesn't hurt to wait.

If you live in the US and have a Micro Center nearby, buy your CPU and motherboard from them if you can.

I would go for a different case personally I had the NZXT H500 and the airflow is terrible, if possible find something with a mesh or more open front panel with better intake. I've used this case in a few client builds and if you pick up a couple extra 120mm fans for intake in the front it's a very solid case.

What about the Meshify C? I have been looking into that case as well. I am familiar with the p350 I am just not a fan of the style. I am more of a minimalist type of person

The Meshify C is my go to case! I've used one for about 6 months now and love it. You will need to buy two extra case fans in order to get the full 3 intake fans in the front because it only comes with one on the rear and one in the front. But it's a very solid case with amazing thermals.

Id remove the cooler and just stick with stock is more then adequate your not gonna be overclocking on a b450 board anyway with the cash id go for the 3700x

 

like the performance gain for cooling with a 80$ heat sink is nothing compared to the performance gained spending a bit more for 2 more core 4 more threads

with a 3600 a decent B450 board is enough for overclocking.
