Build Plan Thread Recommendations (Please read before posting)

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


Planning my first build ever!


Would love some feedback on the system i have parted out, some is chosen from reviews/budget reason, some of it is cause i like it. :)


Have a budget of £800 GBP


My aim is mostly for gaming, but some little picture and video editing too. i would say 85% gaming.


Will be using one monitor to begin with, but may move to more later.


I do wish to overclock in the future but will buy better cooling for that as and when i can, its not an immediate want but i wish to retain the ability to.


I have keyboard and mouse etc already and a new monitor is not included in the £800 budget 


Parts list is here https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/PmGfw6


Thanks guys

Only a minor change, diverted some funds from the RAM for a better PSU. Besides the Corsair has lower latency timing at CL15, probably won't make a difference in real life usage but its nice to have I guess.

I am from: Indonesia

My budget is: 600 USD

Am I building now?: in the next month

My build is for: Gaming mostly (I am getting ready for cryberpunk 2077 yeah its still a long way) and occationaly 3D modeling (Solidworks and Autocad)

I want to game at: 1440p highest framerate that I can get

Do I need a monitor?: already have it

Do I need peripherals?: already have it too

Situational notes: Im stuck with the option between ryzen cpu 2700x and intel cpu i7 8700k

Here's my build idea: (PCPartpicker build)

Build notes: I already got some few part in advance 

-Croyrig h7 quad lumi

-GTX 1070 ti

-Gskill tridentz 16 gb 3200

-Samsung SSD 860 evo 250

-Seasonics Focus gold 650 Watt


So I'm in a little dilemma here since either i wait for the ryzen 3000 series or just grab the 2000 series. I really prefer the i7 8700k for my build but since there is the mds issue and i dont really know if it will affect me. I am also open to other option so that i can get the best out of my budget.

I am planning on building a fast pc capable of any office type word I need to do, but also is capable of running any game at high settings with high FPS. My budget is around a $1000 usd and right now I am deciding on the final parts.


I am currently deciding wether I should get an Intel i5 9600k with a EVGA geforce rtx 2060, or save money by not having to get the gen z motherboard and get a ryzen 7 2700 or 2700x with a Rtx 2070 graphics card.


Which option do you think will give me a better result for what I’m trying to accomplish?
