Advice on my first PC Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys, I'm rather new to the PC building community, and I've assembled a list of parts of the PC that I would like to build. Any suggestions would be greatly accepted, as I would like some advice on my list. Here is the part list:

My only requirements are Asus Aura Sync compatible RGB, and black/red black parts.

Thanks in advance!

The gigabyte graphics card may throw a wrench into that plan


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

i'll probably just turn off the rgb or keep it a static red. Thanks for the suggestions though!

Why not downgrade the cpu to a 3600/3600x and go with an rtx 2070 super instead? unless youre doing rendering or anything you wont really notice a difference with the 3600 vs 3700 and even for that its pretty good. The only reason i say to sway from amd gpus is that nvidia has a much more stable driver and a better feature set as opposed to the amd cards. it would also be slightly faster.

Thanks for the suggestion, I may do that as 3600 still offers really good gaming performance, but I do like the 8 cores of the 3700X for streaming.
