First PC build! Need opinions!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Here's a list of stuff I'll be doing on the PC:

Livestreaming xbox gameplay

Rendering gameplay

Recording gameplay from xbox using a elgato

Web design

Coding

Web browsing

School stuff

Playing mine craft & recording it

Budget: $1200 Canadian (less the better)

The parts I choose:

Evga gtx 750 ti 2gb

Corsair obsidian 250d

Corsair rm750 760w

Corsair vengeance 8gb

Msi b85i

Intel core i5-4670k

Samsung 840 pro series 128gb ssd

Corsair air series AF120 quite edition

I'd like the build to be QUITE that's why I went with a more expensive psu. I want the build to keep to a red & black theme. Also it's a MicroATX build because I don't have space for a huge case. & I plan to use the default cpu cooler for awhile seeing as how I don't plan on over clocking! Also for a hard drive I plan on just getting whatever 1TB one is on sale at my local store

Please give me any feedback or suggestions!

There is no point in getting a b85 chipset with an unlocked processor, get a Z87/Z97 chipset board. Also, use pcpartpicker.com

Minecraft is heavily CPU based but i reckon it should be fine. I would probs change it to i5-4690k devils canyon but a z97 board is slightly more expensive but that is completely up to u. Depending on how much money you have left at the end to spend i'd get another 4 or 8GB of ram since u would most likely need it for rendering/editing.

still had the 4690k in my ppp and was too lazy to change it with a cheaper, locked i5 lol. But the 20bucks for a Z97 board are also available.

If you plan not to overclock why get a K cpu your probably better off with 4690, btw do you need windows or have you got it?
