Is my build good?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Budget (including currency): ~800$ (22000₴)

Country: Ukraine (prices are somewhat higher)

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: All the games! Incl. cyberpunk. And programming/office work

Details:

I'm content with this build, just very nervous, I've never built my own PC before. Is there anything wrong?

Keeping in mind that I want to upgrade the GPU next year to hypothetical RTX 3060 / AMD counterpart, to bathe in the rays 🙏

I couldn't find my case on partpicker, but I'm going with a cheap ~50$ case with built-in fans

The SSD is just extra for games, I already own a good SSD+HDD

 

I'll also need a cheap 1080p/120-144Hz monitor. I can sit about 70-80cm away from the monitor, not sure if 27 inches would be too much.

 

Thank you for your help!

P.S. Do they include thermal paste with cpu?

yes, but it's good to keep a tube in hand for maintenance anyways

depends on the games u play, imo

some games i play with black borders to allow me to see more things in a smaller area

some games are more immersive when playing on a big screen

 

build looks ok

things i would improve:

- maybe a decent air cooler to replace stock cooler, not needed but it's nice to slap a big heatsink on and run at low RPM. just make sure your casing can fit it


Things I need help with: *new* Need help from "G-sync Compatible" monitor owner(s)

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

 

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.

Looks good, though I'd first check if you can find a B450-A Pro Max or Gaming Plus Max for cheaper, either to fit a 2060/5600XT in, or (if you're certain that you're upgrading to Ampere/RDNA2 next year) a better power supply, like a Corsair TX550M for example.

I'd go for 24" at 1080p.

Yes, it's preapplied on the stock cooler.

Looks very reasonable, will switch to it. Though I'll stick with 1660Super for now. Concerning PSU, will it really make enough a difference?

Only has 2 slots for for HDD/SSD but I guess I can just leave one of the SSDs loose, otherwise looks good.

That can always be added later, will keep in mind though.

Thanks!

The MWE Bronze v2 is not bad, but I don't know where upcoming GPUs will be at in terms of current draw.

I mean, GN did a video iirc where they ran a 7700K and a 1080Ti on a 450W MWE Bronze v2, but it's not something I'd personally want to do long-term. I'd be a lot more confident in a TXM, or a be quiet! Pure Power 11 500W, just to name another option.

 

But, in short, the PSU you picked will run a 1660 Super fine and should run even higher-end current-gen GPUs alright. If you're on a really tight budget, it's not the end of the world if you can't get something better.
