Bad at picking parts need help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

so i made this list i have 4000 aud limit can go a little over 

https://www.pccasegear.com/sc/qBd

 

What i am looking for is a gaming rig that can handle streaming and gaming like COD, Overwatch and all fps types. could you see any improvements i can make and will all my parts be compatible or not(new to picking parts hard to figure this out) 

 

What i don't  want 

to scared to go water cooling(call me a baby but the risk is always there)

 

 

What i want

little bit of RGB 

room for future growth so full tower

 

Really need help weighing in if i am missing better deals or any parts with better performance. Mostly want clarification if all the parts could fit in and compatible for this build and is there any tips and tricks for this.

 

Thanks for reading

Not really

The Ryzen chips have given intel a strong competition. Their prices are infinitely better for what you get compared to the intel equivalent.

there is a marginal FPS gain with intel, but that is also with a 2080Ti. ryzen 5 3600 is currently the price/performance king

Great to hear lol

 

Regarding that, what resolution and refresh rate do you play on?

First, you have to realize that intel will be changing motherboards this year.  It’s not the best time to go “all-in” for intel.

 

Ryzen right now is beating intel on all metrics - really not the right time to be an Intel fan-boy.

 

You budget allows for a 2080 super, AMD 3600, 2 tb nvme 16 GB 4000 hz memory, and a good motherboard.

 

Remember at a certain price range, you have to purchase such things as better monitor and other peripherals.  That is unless all you plan to do is run Cinebench and FRAPS all day long.

Both are just overkill examples of what you could get, I personally would save on some things to get a nice monitor, speakers/headphones, mouse and keyboard, but if you already got those you could either go overkill anyway or save some money.

shouldnt you go for an all-in-1 water cooler at this point?

Good air coolers like the D15 or DRP4 are on par with  mid range air coolers.

No reason to do so, and he said he doesn't want to. And for the Ryzen system it would barely make any difference.

Not to be rude, but this statement alone tells me you really should do a LOT more research before spending that amount of money.

 

Ryzen has come up over the past 3 years or so, and not to have seen them means you're lacking a LOT of information about the scene.

 

Definitely take the advice of the peeps here, but before you pull any trigger I'd lewarn more about what you're buying.

 

Good luck and enjoy whichever way you go!

you have 350 to spend on improvements or peripherals.  I included a decent monitor for the build because you do need a decent monitor for the price.

came up with this build. good yeah nah

 

 

Both builds that I and @Slottr posted are better.

That GPU is too expensive for a 2070S, you can get a 2080S for the same price. The motherboard is also too expensive, it makes no sense to spend almost double on the motherboard than on the CPU in a build like this. The PSU is also too expensive, 650W is more than enough, the Corsair PSU(either RM or RMx) in the builds above is a better deal. The RAM is also too expensive but maybe justified if you really want the RGB, and if you want 32GB you should get the 2x16GB. The SSD is too small, no reason to get only 256GB on a build this expensive. The cooler is also too expensive, you can get similar performance for almost half the price with the bequiet! DRP4, Deepcool Assasin III, Cryorig R1 Ultimate and others, and it is mostly unnecessary to use such high-end cooler on a 3600. Also the 3600X costs too much over the 3600 to be worth it, 90AUD for a better cooler that you won't use and a minimal clock speed bump at stock isn't worth it.

Is there a reason why you really want to have a mechanical drive?  The larger an SSD is, the faster it becomes.
 

The 3600 is the same as the 3600x, except the 3600x costs more.  The 3600x is literally a rip-off - especially since you are replacing the cooler.

 

You really like that thermaltake case.  It is a rip-off of a Lian-li.  I’m curious if there is something special about the case which is different from the Lian li.

 

Except that it is not available till December,  I see nothing wrong with the power supply.

 

What made you want to increase memory to 32 GB?  For Amd builds, speed is important in gaming performance.  Get 3600 Hz memory.

Actually no.  You’re wrong.  On the same website, you can’t obtain a 2080s for that same price.  But I do agree that he should get a 2080s.

Why does it make no sense?   
 

Look at your own forums here?  Where are most of the problems and complaints coming from?

 

Motherboards.  People cheaped-out on their motherboards, a few years pass and now they have problems.  Sometimes they have them even earlier.

 

Motherboards help determine the NVME performance, USB performance, WIFI performance, sound performance, overclocking performance, stability, power distribution, fan headers, water pump headers, and more.

 

What does the CPU (APU) do?  Run Cinebench?  Help support the graphics card?

 

Which is easier to replace? The Motherboard or the CPU (APU)?

 

In addition, CPU(APU) quality is the same across the board.  Motherboard quality varies dramatically.  
 

A better motherboard is easier to build a computer with and easier to maintain and troubleshoot.  One of the advantages of a DIY build is that you don’t have to use crap for your motherboard!  Otherwise, one might as well buy an HP!

 

If one was really limited in money, then buying the cheapest mobile on the market makes sense, but with a build this expensive?
