First build suggestions please!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I have a 1080p 120hz monitor and was hoping to get a solid gaming/occasional CAD rig for US$1000-1200 (plus Windows and peripherals). Is anything way too expensive for the build? Is there a better backlit keyboard and/or mouse for cheap-ish? Any and all comments and criticism would be extremely helpful!

Change the board to an Asus TuF X570. Better VRM thermals and much better firmware/BIOS.

 

Also, the CX-M is worse quality than the CX non-M. Get a CX550 or TXm 550

You're also overpaying for storage. Instead of the expensive Evo and separate low end Barracuda, get a 2TB Western Digital Blue SSD or a Crucial MX500 2TB.

 

You can also get a custom RX 5700 since it's faster than the 2060 Super and usually cheaper

Looks like decent 2TB SSDs are going for around $200, a bit more than what I already have, on PCPartPicker. Any place I should look for them?

I was thinking of going pure 2TB SSD rather than a 500GB SSD + 2TB HDD but I'd you insist on NVMe for some reason then might as well ke p it as is

I'll recommend something like this instead. Much better build for less....

The above list is solid. I'd only add an Arctic Freezer eSports 34 so that PBO can be run to the max

yeah I like @VEXICUS build.  No way a motherboard should be more than the CPU, as in the OP.

Is there something to be said for getting a more recent X570 motherboard for upgrades with future gens? Also @5x5 I was looking at SATA SSDs and they were still that expensive. What price should they be?

An Asus X570 TuF is all you need. As for SSDs - SATA should be 1$/GB or so
