Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everyone,


I've started getting my parts in for my first PC build and they are as follows:


Corsair Carbide 678C computer case

Corsair 850w power supply

Asus ROG Strix F-Gaming B550 motherboard

Western Digital Blue 500GB M.2 SSD


The computer parts I'm wanting to get are as follows:

What I'm needing help with now is deciding on a graphics card. What is a well built, keeps cool under load and quiet or low noise and have 8gb graphics? and thats reliable. 


Thanks for helping.

Why do you need 8GB VRAM? Most games don't need more than 4.

A 3800x is basically just a 3700x so buy that, and turn on PBO along with a Noctua cooler like the NH-U12S.

For the graphics card probably something like a 2070S or a 2080S however if you can wait until Sep 1 (20 days) NVIDIA will be launching their next gen graphics cards then and it's really soon so I would wait if I were you.
