NEW Gamin/simulaton Rig suggestions

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello Everyone looking for a suggestion here.I am planning on to assemble a Gamng/esxi machine.

CPU: AMD 3900x/3950x

MOBO:X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3

RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 64GB (2 x 32GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Desktop Memory Model F4-3200C16D-64GVK  

GPU: 2070/2080 Super

I already have a ssd and hdd from old machine to use.

Case:Fractal Design Node 202 Case+750W PSU

I want this to be as minimal as it can be in terms of space.

 

Looking for suggestions here or your feedback to how I should proceed.

 

Thanks in advance :)

Cut the RAM to 32gb and invest it in the GPU imo. you can always add more ram, but a gpu needs to be replaced outright.
From what I know those 32gb sticks may cause issues as well, I understand that it's an itx build, but smaller isn't better for the heat many of these components will output.


CPU: Intel core i7-8086K Case: CORSAIR Crystal 570X RGB CPU Cooler: Corsair Hydro Series H150i PRO RGB Storage: Samsung 960 EVO Series - 1TB PCIe NVMe - M.2 Internal PSU: EVGA 1000 GQ, 80+ GOLD 1000W, Semi Modular GPU: GeForce RTX 2080 GAMING X TRIO RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 32GB (2 x 16GB) DDR4 3200mhz Motherboard: Asus ROG STRIX Z370-E Gaming

Do you need the PCIe slots? Why not ITX?

only need one for GPU rest is compute power needed ....plus mobo has TB3 so i can expand on some peripherals if needed

Your suggestion for ram makes sense...looks like i will run one stick for time being then....can you explain on what issues  with those ram sticks.

Also what GPU you recommend?

I'd probably do something like this personally:

TL;DR it splits the ram bandwidth which kills CPU performance, and that's if your motherboard is compatible.

 

Using 1 ram stick will also kill CPU performance, there are some small form factor builds that use micro-ATX that are a bit bigger, but will get you the better cooling capacity and 4 ram slots for better performance. You'll save a lot more money as well for just a few inches of increased size.

 

For GPU, just get the most expensive one you can afford, and not a penny more.

Hey Thank you ... the only reason i chose Asrock X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB3 AMD X570 AM4 Mini ITX was due to TB3 port on it, so i am a bit future proof in termos of expansion.

 

Also confused between 2080 super and 2080 ti ... its 20-30% performance bump what do you think ?

ahh that makes sense... i was just rying to make a portable+performance PC :)

that is the reason why i chose that mobo, having TB3 helps for expansion
