Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, So my brother asked me to get him a new PC, since he's using a Macbook and he knows I'm better than him with PC stuff, He'll mainly be using it for gaming and SOME college work, His budget is 1500$ CAD, and he has a 1080p 60hz monitor, Here's the build I made for him,  Any suggestions on what I should change? (Btw He loves RGB)

 

 


My custom loop 5000$ PC:

 CPU: Intel i7 9900k Motherboard: Asus Prime Z390-A RAM: 32GB (x4 8GB Modules) Corsair Dominator VideoCard: Asus Nvidia 2080ti HDD/SSD: 1TB M2 Samsung EVO 970 Case: LianLi O11 Dynamic (White) Radiator: x1 Corsair Hydro X Series XR5 360 Fans: x6 Corsair LL120 RGB Tubing: Thermaltake PETG ID: 13mm OD: 16mm Fittings: Bitspower Throughout Waterblocks: CPU: EK-Velocity RGB (Nickel+Plexi) VideoCard: EK-Vector RTX 2080ti w/ Nickel Backplate (Nickel+Plexi) Reservoir: Bitspower Touchaqua Sedna Front Plate Options: Corsair Commander Pro, Corsair RGB Controller, Custom Sleeved Cables for CPU, ATX and PCI-E

Does he already have a monitor? What resolution and refresh rate is it?

I would suggest getting a cheaper case, cheaper graphics card, and using that saved money on a better monitor.

He's getting a 144hz monitor soon, so it's fine :) , although should I get the XFX or MSI?

Both kind of suck, honestly.

If you can afford it, go for a pulse card from sapphire.

Most cases are easy to cable manage nowadays. It's not worth the extra $70+.

If you don't overspend on the case, and rgb fans you'll be able to easily afford it.

I would suggest not getting the msi x570 MPG boards, they're rumored to have some terrible VRMs

X570-P or the TUF from asus, or the aorus elite from gigabyte. though with a 3600 you really only need a B450-A Pro/gaming plus/tomahawk.


CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700@3.8Ghz Heatsink: Gelid Phantom Black GPU: Sapphire RX 5700 XT RAM: Qidian DDR4 2x8GB 3000Mhz mobo: Biostar X370GT7 case: Fractal Design Define C PSU: Superflower Leadex Gold 650W

I'd personally go with the elite, or a good B450 board
