First build in 12 years (looking for any suggestions)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): ~$1900

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Preparing for cyberpunk (will be the most intensive game ill be playing.)

Other details This is the current selection of parts im looking at https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Morale56/saved/#view=2TMqpg

I want to get into water cooling. as a beginner in this area, and the set up costing a decent bit of money, i decided to look at getting a kit instead of buying every part individually. 

If i enjoy the water cooling aspect ill invest more into it. The kit i found is https://www.ekwb.com/shop/ek-classic-kit-p360-d-rgb.

 

Let me know if you have any suggestions. im looking at buying this in the next few days, so i will have it before i get home from deployment.

I suggest waiting until the fall when the new stuff comes out. You're going to lose a substantial amount of performance buying parts now.

Replace Ryzen 5 3600 with Ryzen 5 3700x

Replace RTX 2070S with RTX 2080S

Amazon is having a stroke right now so the CPU cooler costs like 3x more than it should, it should be like $70 but something like this works just fine as well so you can really get anything.

(But the one I recommenced is much higher quality and will be much quieter)

If you read his post, you will see that he's coming back from a deployment. He may not be around in the fall to buy new PC parts. Just let him enjoy it.

Meaning it will be in his house while he's gone, not so he can use it before he leaves.

If he knows about the performance hit, it might chance his mind.

Ouch.. ill definitely be around in the fall. im only in the navy.. sitting out here on the longest underway in modern history..

 

anyway... i think the link i gave was bad, as it should be listing a Ryzen 7 not a 5.

heres a new one, and ill update the original post.

Seems like a good build overall, although if you can wait a few months (tbh closer to the holiday season maybe) then new GPUs from Nvidia and new CPUs from AMD are slated to be released.  I don't know when fall is, I don't live in a temperate region :P  It's summer all year round here.


QUOTE ME IN A REPLY SO I CAN SEE THE NOTIFICATION!

When there is no danger of failure there is no pleasure in success.

Yup, it's solid in terms of CPU + GPU choice. If you want to go the custom loop route you can, just bear in mind that it takes a lot of maintenance and possibly spare parts, and I'm not sure if you can get overnight prime delivery in the middle of the Pacific. :)

I won't go over step by step everything that I see that can be improved with your vs my list, but just keep in mind that mine will perform much better while being ~400 cheaper. (Due to the better graphics card). If you can wait around until the fall, it would be a great jumping off point to tweak it for your needs with the new hardware. If you want to go the full RGB route you can check out the Corsair HydroX series which look super cool.

Thanks for the suggestion.. one option would be to lower the cost of my GPU and then spend the money on the new gen when it comes out.. i dont have a gaming PC at this time (been a console gamer for the better part of 6 years), so i cant just wait. a definite maybe though!

Have you used any of the Corsair HydroX products? i cant exactly watch videos reviews or anything out here, but what ive read is that they are pretty stuck into their own ecosystem. which might not give the greatest flexability.
