PC Build idea

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want a PC for gaming and maybe sometimes for streaming. I plan on playing rainbow, forntie, csgo, rocket league, and modern warfare. I prefer intel over AMD. My budget is around $1,600-$1,700 USD. I also need the monitor, keyboard, and mouse included in that budget.

Why do you prefer intel over amd? amd has intel completely beat if you want to stream and game.

Honestly I don’t know. I have friends who have PCs and they told me to get intel over AMD. But then again I don’t know about PCs

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 threadSeasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

ditch intel and go with amd 2600 cpu then spend more money on other things like a good mobo $150-$200 mobo, 3600 2x8gb ram, 500W psu, then dump lots of money into the gpu

What kind of games?

It's only around $1100 for an R7 2700/3700X + RX 5700


I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

This looks good, although I'd recommend a Phison E12 drive for 10$ more, instead of a SM2263XT or whatever that is. He could honestly step up to a 2070S (CUDA), or get a half-decent CPU cooler (such as a Fuma 2) instead of the crappy stock AMD cooler (yes, the and cooler is better than an intel cooler, no, its not better than a 2 heatpipe 80mm tower cooler (deepcool gammax 200t).

 

For peripherals, OP: I'd recommend you go into an actual store and try them out, else, I like corsair, so a Corsair K70 and M65/M55 are good choices. Logitech makes nice mice, but bad keyboards imo. Steelseries makes good headsets and mice, not sure about keyboards. Stay away from Razer tho.

Zen 2 is better than zen 1 at this point for the money.

 

OP, what resolution and refresh rate are you looking to game at?

$80 difference from what I can tell but its all use case scenerios and how much cash one is willing to spend.

i like to save money! save money where you can and spend more money where is needed. but 1500ish i guess the 3600 will do ;)

I’m assuming 144Hz and I’m not sure about resolution. Again I’m a total noob when it comes to PCs 😕

I'll go with a part by part breakdown and explanation why.

Ryzen 5 3600 - best 200$ processor, 6c12t, and good out of the box.

Thermalright Macho - one of the best CPU coolers at the 50$ price point. Very quiet, and good performance.

X570 Steel legend. The ASUS X570-P has like 0 features, albeit a decent VRM. This also has a usable VRM, but has more other features. Buildzoid says its decent.

Ram - it works I guess. Fast too with XMP

SSD - TLC SM2263 Drive with dram and a heatsink. It's a SX8200 Pro with a heatsink, and comes in at the same prices as competing Phison E12 drives but with a heatsink. 1TB should be more than enough for 5-10 large games and files. You can always get another drive.

2070 Armor - great value at 425$. Basically a free upgrade from 2060 super. CUDA gives you better support for tensor flow, and you get the Nvidia NVENC encoder. In general more features than a 5700XT. in addition, it has a good cooler.

Meshify C - Great case, good airflow, compact, good build quality. Glass too

PSU - 80+ gold, it works

Monitor - 1440p 144hz is best combo of refresh rate and sharpness. VA is just as good as IPS imo.

Keyboard - K70 is all metal, and its rgb, and it comes with a cool metal volume knob. Good keyboard. I like MX reds/linear switches

Mouse - Good all-rounder mouse, and its cheap. 

 

@Mayo if you have any questions, just ask me.

on it. I'll edit this post when I'm done. Do you have any brand preferences for peripheral;s? 

At this point it doesn’t really matter, but the 2070 super was a graphics card I was aiming for.

For fps games just get a 1080p 240hz display

3700X is just a better value than the 9900K

Can buy the CPU cooler, and 2TB hard drive later.

The RX 5700/XT has 80-90 of the 2070 super's performance at a lower price, and will work fine for 1080p/1440p gaming.
