Hello

 

I'm in need of advice for a PC build.

My budget is 1300€ with the monitor included.

I would mainly use this PC for content creation, such as photo/video/audio editing and architectural rendering and some light gaming. For heavy gaming I gave a PS4...

I want it to last and be reliable.

Can you please help me decide on components and advise on certain areas?

 

Motherboard: 

Gigabyte Aorus Elite - 190€

ASUS TUF Gaming Plus - 215€

 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X

(around 300€ in my country)

 

GPU: I am a bit torn between GTX 1660Ti and RX 5500XT and RX 5600XT

I found a good deal for Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 5500XT 8Gb Nitro - 275€ that's a steal...

RX 5600XT 6Gb is around 300-320€

 

PSU: Corsair TX650M/EVGA 650GQ

(between 85-95€ in my country)

 

RAM: DDR4 16GB Kit (2x8Gb) 3600MHz

I was thinking about Corsair Vengeance LPX? 

 

SSD/M.2:

Samsung 970 EVO 250-500Gb

( between 80-110€ in my country)

Seagate Barracuda 1Tb SSD 

(around 120€ in my country)

 

CASE: no clue, but I'd like a case that has a glass door and 2-3 fans.

 

MONITOR: curved, adjustable stand, at least 27" and maximum 200€

 

Thanks a lot.

What's your country?

I'd go asus tuf (unless asus prime is cheaper)

5600xt or 2060 (see if you can find evga 2060 ko, it's great for content creators)

Txm 550/650

3600 c16 if possible, c18 otherwise. Doesn't matter what brand, you can get the cheapest

Samsung is overpriced, see if you can find silicon power a80 or sabrent rocket

 

But with a country and a budget i can make a more personalized build

Hi, 

Unfortunately, I could not find the brands for the RAM you recommended...also 3600MHz RAM options are around 7-9 different models all above 100€...

Do you think 3200MHz would be sufficient?

GPU: 5600XT and rtx2060 are similar price range but I heard that AMD CPU works better with AMD GPU. Is that true?

As I mentioned my budget is 1300€ with a monitor included.

Could you please advise me further?

 

Thanks.

If 3600 is much more than 3200, then get 3200.

It's a myth that amd cpu works better with amd gpu. Currently, i would recommend nvidia gpu, as amd is having drivers issues.

The closest country that I can find is Germany and I used Amazon Germany for the parts and pricing in Euros.

Why two separate 1 TB HDDs instead of one HDD with 2 TB?

Thanks for the recommendation! I will look at the prices in my country as I have searched Amazon Germany before too and for example the AMD Ryzen 7 3700x is around 360-380€ in Germany and in my country it's 295€.

But I will do a research on the products you suggested.

Thanks :)

2nd drive will serve as a backup of the first HDD.

 

That's the logical way of dealing with data.

That's the problem with opinions. Opinions are usually NOT based on facts. Very subjective. 

 

Just saying...
