Planning for a new build within $800 to $1000

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Everyone,

Im planning to build a new pc for moderate gaming. but I'm gonna use it mainly for photoshop and minor premierepro/AE edits.

 

I have a basic understanding of things work inside the PC & I'm planning to stick with INTEL because of placebo reasons.

 

if you can help me build a new PC from scratch, i would really Appreciate it.

re sacrificing a lot of performance by going with intel. at this price point amd is the way to go. For about the same price you get 8 cores instead of 6 and 16 threads instead of 6.

 

If I were you I would really consider this:

 

 

The mobo may need a bios update, if you go with this you must check that it is ryzen 3000 ready. That is if you do not have an am4 cpu with wi

You know this build you posted is just a universal downgrade compared to the one you quoted right?

 

Worse PSU

Worse Ram

Worse storage

Worse GPU

Worse CPU (you can argue clockspeed but threads are more important)

you know that I was trying to keep it  under 1000$. and that I added something the other build did not have, a decent cooler.

the ram is not worse, intel unlike amd cpus do not benefit that much from high speed ram.

the cpu, gpu, storage and psu, are worse, I agree, however it was the best you can do for under 1000$.

The ssd provides good boot speeds, the cpu is good (the best you could do), the psu does the job (amd it is reliable) and for what he is planning on using the pc, a 1660ti is enough.

the other build did not even have a decent cooler!

The i7 8700 build is a lot better, it'd be better value add a 212 Black and similar cooler to it and go a bit over the 1k margin than do the pretty meaningful downgrade across the board you've made.

 

There's good value and there's cheap, no point in save a little more if you're getting considerably worse.

I was trying do a build in his pricepoint, with well known brands which are known for reliability.

There's no reason to follow the price limit literally if you can reason why spend more... Forum is for debate and keeping an open mind is beneficial, it's part to explain OP what is good value and what isn't.

 

Also your statement is false on the account Kingston is a shitty brand for SSD, without mention you chosen a pretty mediocre Power Supply regardless of branding... just to name some of the wrong choices.

 

I think deep down all you wanted to make was squeeze that bequiet! cooler in there with low effort on what you were pricing cut to accommodate it. That wasn't a smart move but you can always learn from it.

Then you only need to change the GPU......

Also 4$ and 10 cents isball that much to care about?

Except they do benefit from it.

 

Also you payed more for worse Ram, so i dont see why you would do that.

Its a worse PSU. 

 

Jusy fyi, the cxm and cx are two rather different PSUs.

He is 4$ above 1000$...... You dont need to do a universal downgrade to make the budget work.

True, tho the drp4 isnt neccesary. And you can make the stock cooler work.

Sorry if came off as a bit rude. 

 

But here is something worth noting about reliability and companies.

 

Just because the sticker on the box come from a brand you deem reliable, doesnt mean it is. 

 

Companies arent reliable, the induvidual parts are. As such one should disregard the sticker and just get the best you can afford.
