New Build

Recommended Posts

I found this thread very helpful when building my PC:
https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/1034327-build-guide-recommendations-megathread-update/

One thing that stands out to me is that you're spending $90 on fans. I'm not sure if you're using a pre-existing case but if not you might be better off buying a new case with fans preinstalled. Heck, the cost of the fans alone could get you a case with 3 fans included.

Otherwise I went the AMD route so I couldn't much comment on this build.

get a 3600+B450 gaming plus/A-pro/tomahawk instead and a 2x8GB kit. why do you have an SSD that costs so much?

Budget route AMD

swap Motherboard with Asrock pro 4, GPU down to 1660ti, Rmx to CX 2017 ( 550w is fine, can do 650W). better case?.

I don't know what you mean AAA games like. i would referring to BF5 and such level. even with Ryzen 3 and RX570, it already run smooth at high/Ultra setting above 60fps 1080p of course without Ray-Tracing. so i guess 1660TI would be sufficient enough. but since you can afford $1.2K build plan, i highly suggest you using Build Number one.

 

      and for tips. never buy F processor. without Igpu its better with AMD. most of people go for intel because they render faster for Adobe optimization. yeah you would lose some frame rate. but the upgrade of the motherboard is far more better. but if you insist going with intel then go with non-F and with K. seriously F not worth.

second, is since you have money just go straight with Dual-Channel. it double the bandwith. for cheap Ram go for Oloy or Team Vulcan. all rams are same anyway IMO.

M.2 SSD? we have Intel 660P, sabrent rocket, Crucial MX500. Evo series. just pick equally with your budget. although i prefer Intel 660P 512GB or 1TB. your pick for 100$ WDB 512GB is OVERPRICED.

Do you need RTX? no, then 5700XT. if it yes then go for 2070 Super.

there is list for psu here PSU TIER LIST

Better power delivery. It's going to allow better overclocking and support for better cpu's if you ever plan to upgrade.

 

 

but too expensive and X570 mobo not worth unless you use the power PCLe lanes. which in gaming not matter

RMx better than RM with same price.

even stock cooler AMD can do mild OC.

Intel 660P is better than silicon SSD

and 500$ for gpu is insane

No. The 660P is much worse than the silicon power A80.
