$950 Budget Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Thoughts on $950 build? I think the PSU is overkill in terms of quality, but I wanted something modular.

 

The computer will be used for gaming (League of Legends) and general productivity. The end goal is to maximize performance and reliability per dollar. 

 

I can't give too many use case specifics because it's a build for a family friend that I don't know very well 😀.

Looks solid overall, the MWE gold isn't a standout unit in its class so you might want to save and get a corsair CX650


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

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

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)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It got the same VRM as the Tomahawk. The B450M-A Pro is the one with weaker VRM.
