New Gaming PC - Tips

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey all,

 

I've made a PC configuration below and I would love to have some opinions on it. My intention is to build a gaming PC, which I can also use for AI training, that will allow me to play all games for the upcoming 5-ish years on ultra settings with 1080p and 144Hz. 

 

PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/PrvQjp

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 3700X 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor
Motherboard: MSI MAG X570 TOMAHAWK WIFI ATX AM4 Motherboard 
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws V 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3600 CL16 Memory
Storage: Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive 
Storage: Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive 
Video Card: MSI GeForce RTX 3080 10 GB GAMING X TRIO Video Card 
Case: Fractal Design Define 7 ATX Mid Tower Case 
Power Supply: Corsair RM (2019) 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply 
 

Notes:

  • The Zen 3 AMD CPU's will be announced soon (early october), if they would be available in the nearish future and similarly priced I probably will swap my current choice for such newer CPU. 
  • The PSU is currently 750W, depending on the new CPU power demand this could go up. I'm not sure how much margin I have here? 
  • I live in Europe, so the prices given by PCPartPicker and not representable for me (eg. I can buy the X570 board for 220 euros). This build would cost me around 2000 euros. 
  • I know the 32GB RAM is overkill at this time (RTX 3080 is too for 1080p gaming), I mainly choose this because I want to be future proof and because Flight Simulator already recommends this amount of RAM in their game. It's only 30 euro difference between this and 16GB RAM of similar specs for me. 
  • I didn't choose a PCIe 4.0 compatible SSD because I don't think it's yet worth the price premium. 

 

Looking forward to your opinions!

This looks like a decent build but I suggest getting a better cooler such as a U12S or a NH d15 because the stock cooler is barely fine for that CPU.

Even without overclocking?

I mean that is what i suggest, a new cooler will go a long way for not that much money. Like it would probably be at 80-85 degrees stock at full load.

I'll definetly take a look, probably have to see what cooler the stock Zen 3 CPU are going to ship with.
