Intel based build advices

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): 650 €

Country: Italy

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Used especially for gaming in FHD, but I would like if it could handle also basic video editing oprations using Adobe Suite.

Other details

I already have a Crucial MX500 that i'm gonna use for OS and also for data store. I dont need the peripherals. This is my first gaming pc, and playing at 1080 p 60Hz, will be fine for me. Also dont need the montor in this build.

I would prefer a Intel based platform if it's possible.

 

Thanks you

Why intel? AMD is much better for editing and basically the same in gaming.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

Hi thanks for the reply. I updated my post, because I forgot to write some things in my first post.

I wanna stay on Intel, just because I always used Intel on my old Laptops and I never had any trouble. 

 

Thanks you

if you are looking for a better "bang for buck" then go amd, unless you can find some good deals on used intel chips

Hi thanks for the reply. I'm not sure, I've always heard that AMD produce more heat than intel. and also had some trouble in the past with drivers on an AMD laptop that I bought. While with Intel I've never had any trouble.

The heat part is incorrect. nowadays, intel actually produces more heat than AMD.

 

also, nowadays AMD has no driver issues on their CPU side, intel has some security flaws tho.

Intel Core I5 10500 - cheapest is 214 Euros

Ryzen 3600 - cheapest is 169 Euros

 

These 2 CPUs are almost identical in single threaded performance and the 3600 is considerably faster in multi threaded performance.

 

Your 9400F will cost you 160 Euros and will be slower than the 3600 in everything.

 

Edit - plus the 3600 will come with a stock cooler that you can actually use.

The GTX 1650 is slower than an RX 570, nevermind the 580.

If you want to stick with Nvidia, go for a 1650 Super, though unless it's cheaper than an RX 580 I wouldn't bother personally, unless you also plan on streaming.

little confused on the pricing in italy but here is what i would recommend

i am aware that the PSU is absolute overkill, but its a 750 watt tier A PSU for 90 euros so i decided to put it in,

Completely agree with that. Ryzen gives you so much more bang for the buck and is much better than intel for multithreaded workloads like video editing.

 

I would say go with a list liike this:

Awesome. What do you think about this: https://www.amazon.it/gp/product/B081WR32CW/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=AOC3G2PBG3IY7&psc=1 never heard about KFA2. Is it good in you opinion? 

I will just play and do some basic editing for youtube videos. For now I'm not gonna stream, but if I would do it in the future, which are the minimum spesc that I need? 

 

Thanks you

Looks like a pretty cheap heatsink, but I mean it won't make that big of a difference, considering the 1650S is a really low-power card. It should work.

For streaming, the 1650 Super should be fine because of its Turing NVENC encoder - that's another minus for the regular 1650 non-Super, it comes with the older Volta encoder on it, which is worse.

 

No problem!

I don't know, that bitfenix has only one review and it also got one star. (facepalm) :)  I think I'm gonna go with the be quiet! System Powe 9 500 W.

 

Is the be quiet a reliable brand? Do you guys think that a 500W could handle all the components?

 

Here's a summary:

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600

Motherboard: MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX B450

GPU: KFA2 nVidia GeForce GTX 1650 Super

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX  2*8 GB

 

Thanks you

You're right, sometime even the most known brand could fail.

Anyway, in case that I'm gonna update the stock CPU heatsink with a new one based on liquid in the future. Which could be a good choice for this CPU and considering also the size of the case ( CM MasterBox 501L) ? In that case, 500 W will still be good, or it would need more power with the new component? 

 

Thanks

if you are going to get more out of your system investing in a B+ tier and above would let you to have more upgrades since they are more reliable, a 550 watt should be enough for most systems if you are curious here is a thread that may help you.

Ok, I'm gonna read it.

One more thing. Apart from the form factor, Is there any noticeable difference between the 

MSI B450M PRO-VDH MAX B450 chosed by me and the 

MSI B450-A PRO MAX AMD AM4 DDR4 m.2 USB 3.2 Gen 2 HDMI ATX linked by you?
