Building My First PC, Please Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: 2D and 3D Animation, Gaming(GTA to heavily modded Minecraft to Rainbow 6), Photo and Video Editing

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): I have a guess at a list but for sure I will need a new keyboard and a monitor, I currently have no parts of the build bought; didn't want to mess it up. I want to play at 1440 or higher. The faster the refresh rate the better. I'm looking to spend no more than 2500.00

 

Here is my guess at a list

When your internet adapters are more than your CPU :)

 

Not sure I understand that.

 

Can definitely shave some money if you wanted to,  like losing the soundcard as well.  And Windows, my god don't pay them.

 

That case... Are you more interested in form than function?

 

You're under your budget, but you could repurpose so much of that money into actual performance.

Firstly, that is a weird build. 3600 in a $2500 budget. U can easily add in a 3700x and a 2080ti in that kind of budget.

22 minutes ago, Rej900 said:

At that point, just get something like this. (Good audio, integrated 10gig Ethernet, and inbuild wifi)

Originally I chose the AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor, I was also having issues finding a good match between the motherboard and the case. It kept having USBs that were going to be non functional.

Good Idea, but I dont see a 2080Ti that will fit in with my price range.

"The ARCTIC Freezer 34 eSports DUO CPU Cooler may require a separately available mounting adapter to fit the ASRock X570 CREATOR ATX AM4 Motherboard." not sure about this warning also not sure if that will be enough memory. I could be wrong.

If you wanted to, you can keep the original Hyper 212. The arctic will perform better as it has 2 120mm fans, I'm really confused on what that warning message is.

$500 motherboard?  Cut that to $200 and you can afford the 2080Ti.

 

500GB NVMe for $150?

 

I'm at a loss.  So much money spent on things that don't add performance.  Least you recommended the Windows key.

I went off the motherboard based on @VEXICUS's suggestion, and I went for the 970 Pro as OP had it in their original build. They listed 2d/3d animation, and Photo/video editing. The speeds will help with those workloads.

$150 to spare. U can even upgrade ur CPU to r9 3900x. The Mobo that I have included has onboard wifi. So no need of a dedicated card.

Also, the GPU that I have added is one of the best 2080ti's out there (honestly it looks dope).

Windows keys can be had for $10-15 from sites like eBay, scdkeys, kinguin, etc.

 

Good luck & Enjoy.
