New Build Questions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi, I am looking to build a new PC and was looking for some guidance as far as parts go. I currently have a 1070ti that I would use so I don't need a GPU. No fixed budget but under $800 is ideal. Casually play games like Fortnite and Minecraft but really just want something to run Inventor (CAD) and do school work. 

 

Thanks

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:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

EVGA G3 thread, BR/BT threadSeasonic Focus thread, S12II/M12II thread, Userbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions

Would 500w and no extra CPU cooler be enough for OCing and potential GPU upgrade?

When it comes to current gen ryzen, applying PBO is usually easier for the same result, and the stock cooler will carry it as for wattage, you can power basically any PC with 500 watts, so don't worry about it.

Alright, are there any specific features that need to be worried about as far as motherboards go or are most x570's around $120 similar enough?

you won't find any boards around $120, that one's the cheapest. The price gaps between boards are around $10, with wildly varying quality, until you get to $180 or $190, then the boards are about the same quality until about $250.
