Workstation for a girl

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency):  6500 PLN

Country: Poland

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: CAD/3D Workstation, Adobe, nothing super heavy, gaming

Other details (already have 3800x, bought on sale couple of weeks ago, but can be returned, for women - look is important): 

 

https://pl.pcpartpicker.com/list/FTDx7T

 

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3800x 1500 PLN 
CPU Cooler:    Thermalright Macho Rev.B 73.6 CFM CPU Cooler 230 PLN
Motherboard:     ASRock X570 Pro4 ATX AM4 Motherboard 720 PLN
Memory:     G.Skill Trident Z 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL17 Memory White/Silver 690 PLN
Storage:     ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive 589 PLN
Video Card:     Palit GeForce RTX 2070 SUPER 8 GB JetStream Video Card 2340 PLN
Case:     Fractal Design Meshify C ATX Mid Tower Case White 420 PLN

FAN:      Fractal Design X2 GP-12 (White) 52.3 CFM 120 mm Fan 60 PLN

 

My main concerned is MoBo. I chose it mainly for aesthetic reasons. Is there any better than that in similar price point? Also, in same price i can get 3466mhz RAM, but CL16. Which one will be better. Will there be issues with ram clearance? Any thought? I haven't build pc for couple of years, and i'm not up to date as i used to be.

most people don't know how much 6500 PLN is.

could you convert it to either USD or Euro.


Anything i've written between the * and * is not meant to be taken seriously.

keep in mind that helping with problems is hard if you aren't specific and detailed.

i'm also not a professional, (yet) so make sure to personally verify important information as i could be wrong.

Why mention that it is "for a girl" if there is no reason for it?
I mean, i would understand if you are ashamed of yourself for being interested in a hello kitty themed case and therefore wanna go like "thats not mine tho, its for a girl", but since you arent, i dont get the mention of it. :'D

Dont mind me, im just here to rant.

Because for girls aesthetic and look is often more important than for man. And that's te case here. If i build for myself, i would gladly choose chipper case, no rgb etc to get more performance in same budget.

Thats not the case at all. Aesthetic should always be important. And by aesthetic, i dont mean a pomping case and tons of RGB, but propper cable management and overall decent looks.
Case and RGB is absolutely subjective and not bound to any gender tho.

Ok, you are right. Sorry. 

 

Any thought about the build?

Yeah sorry, kinda went off-topic here :D

Overall a decent one. First thing: Do you need to get it like.. NAOW!!! or can you wait couple more weeks/month? Cause the new nvidias are about to drop in 20 days and the new ryzens are also about to be released soon. So you might wanna wait for them to get released to see if one them fits your setup or to hope that the ones you wanna buy now get cheaper.

If you have concerns about ram clearance, i'd suggest a AIO watercooler for your CPU. It looks better (imo, since you want to talk about aesthetics :P ), does a decent cooling job as well plus gives you another source for intake case cooling. 

And the PSU is missing.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 3800x 1500 PLN 

judging by the PCPP link u gave, this is a ryzen 7 3800x

you can click on the T in PCPP to get a list to copy and paste, makes life easier

image.png.f48ddca39dfcdca0f09c5264ea97bbab.png

 

as others have mentioned, new things are coming out soon, so i recommend waiting if you're building high end system like these

so i suggest returning the 3800x, and see what releases

 

 

but if you insist on building one today:

 

CPU: i would get the 3700x, it should be cheaper and perform about the same, but if the price different isnt worth your hassle of returning the 3800x, the 3800x is fine too

 

CPU cooler: idk how this cooler performs, but should be fine

 

Motherboard: it's meh, how much is the x570 TUF there? do you need x570 features? maybe have a look at B550 boards. here's a list you can refer to

 

RAM: looks ok, not sure bout compatibility with the CPU cooler though

 

others: all looks great, other than PSU, idk anything about PSU, but you can refer to this list


Things I need help with: *new* What can Facebook do to me? Privacy Inquiries

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

@MoonzyThanks for part picker tip!

 

Basically i bought 3800x for the price of 3700x. If the price was regular i would pick 3700x.

TUF is about 150 PLN more, and it was my first choice, but it not match the color scheme... B550 boards cost almost the same as x570, fe that Asrock PRO4 B550 is only 40zł cheaper, which is ~10 $. And Thunderbolt support may be needed int future.  TUF is much better than this asrock?

 

Ram clearance should be ok.

for a 3800x, they're both fine

dont worry too much about it if the price difference is that huge

make sure you pick the right board then, not all board supports thunderbolt, even with add-in card
