Best possible, Non Overkill Gaming Rig/Setup (Dream build)

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Well,

I attempted (on pcpartpicker) to make the best gaming rig that isnt super overkill, but is still extremly powerful.

It would work for anything from gaming to website servers, minecraft/ other game servers, or almost anything else.

 

This is my dream PC. ($5000~ USD)

Swap those corsair axi's out for a 1000w p2 from evga, it's like half the price and will work better with a low wattage system like these. That's my only suggestion if you can afford a build like that. Axi is a waste of money in my opinion.

Unrealistic dreams are unrealistic. I find that for me personally, it's much more fun to think about what you would actually go out and buy if your current rig crapped out on you. In my case, that would be this:

I dont understand how this isnt overkill. 64gb of RAM, 5820k, 1500w PSU. 

 

 

And why go with Zotac 980s?

 

1: RAM for vid. editing or for servers

2: 5820k Perfect for gaming, servers, vid editing, etc

3: 1500watt becuase fuck logic

4: Zotac because the colors match the mobo and RAM but you could go with any 980s

Well, my current rig is an ATX build in a mid tower, and I've never put anything in it in its 5 year lifespan that couldn't fit in that ITX build. As I said, this is for me personally. That's also why there's no mass storage drive.

or pretty much any reliable psu 1500 is way too much even for expansion later on. if you want to have titanium rating and good reliability then get a seasonic 100w.

Yeah I understand that though.

Fairly sure an evga p2 is still going to be better than any seasonic psu. How much would a titanium cost?

like i said, fuck logic. AX1500i is an amazing PSU. Yes I would probs like some other evga 1000 watt or something better but I think the PSU is a subjective decision.

In my opinion, this would be best for a $5000 budget. 

 

The 5960x has been added instead because its obviously a monster of a CPU.

32 GB of RAM is enough. You do not need 64 GB.

Having a HDD for storage is in my opinion, essential.

A 1000w PSU is enough.

The fans have been replaced so that you can have the same performance as the ones you have listed in your build. Just replace the color rings to make it white and bam.

I've added a NXZT Hue controller so that you can customize it to your heart's content.

 

If you are planning to buy this in the next few years, wait for a new series of GPUs, such as the 300 series from AMD.

Also please keep a friendly tone at all times. Have a good day/night.
