First Time build, multipurpose PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm finishing up the school year and I'm looking to do my first PC build in the next month or two. There's 3 things that I want this PC to be able to do:

  1. Basic Video Editing (I'm going to be making 20-50 minute videos teaching college physics).
  2. Basic 3D modeling (Nothing insane, just 3D printing and similar levels of complexity)
  3. Gaming and Streaming (Again, nothing insane, I just want to be able to play with moderately good graphics and have the option to stream and/or screen record)

I have the following build put together by the LTT guys as a sort of jumping off point, but I don't know enough about computers to know if it will be sufficient. Trying to stay relatively close the price point of $500 but if that isn't possible then that's fine:

 

Core i3-9100F  https://geni.us/vMkLoN

8GB DDR4-3000 dual channel kit https://geni.us/hMyhd

MSI B360M Bazooka https://geni.us/ZShL

Corsair VS 450W https://geni.us/8H4eB2Q

Deepcool MATREXX 30 https://geni.us/ZwByV

GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER https://geni.us/vkQetf

Patriot Burst 960GB https://geni.us/kp12k

 

I need help figuring out if this build will be sufficient for my purposes, and if it isn't, what parts I need instead to get it there. Also if there's any new parts that are just better but at a similar price point, it'd be nice to incorporate those. Monitor suggestions are also welcome.

 

Thanks for the help!

 

EDIT: building in Seattle Washington, USA

AMD is a much better route to go on all accounts. You get more cores and will leave enough room in your budget for quality parts.

If you are buying in the US:

Much better PSU and faster SSD, and more cores, huge help for 3D modelling. Cheap but good GPU, and a case with decent airflow and an understated look.

 

You wouldn't be able to use DDR4 3000 in your original build anyway, B360 and B365 are locked to 2666 max. 


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 - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (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

If you edit in Premiere, you should grab something with Intel IGPU, but AMD is a better option for the price overall assume you game less than you work. Depends on workloads, 4 cores is kinda fine but I would go 6 cores cuz windows is sh*t.

The iGPU cannot compensate for 2 more cores and 8 more threads. The 1600AF will wipe the floor with any i3 and most i5s in editing. Especially when a dGPU is present

I'm not disagree with you, but sometime going Intel is not so bad, and he mentions he play games too so single thread performance is better on Intel(unless you go ryzen 3000) and Premiere is still favor Intel at some points so..

That's not remotely true. The i3 he's looking at has 25% lower single-core performance the the i5/i7/i9 CPUs that actually perform well in games. In reality, the 1600AF would be much faster in games AND in Premier since it hasn't favoured Intel for over a year now. Adobe have updated it and it's currently performing MUCH better on Ryzen

I combined a few things from both the suggested builds and swapped out the storage for something with a bigger cache but otherwise similar. Does this look good and do you think I'll need a CPU cooler?

 

EDIT: forgot the case
