My Future PC Build

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey there everyone, my name is ArashiG, and this is my first time here actually.

 

I was wondering if I could use some help with a future pc build. 

 

Here's the build: https://pcpartpicker.com/user/thelonelypandaz/saved/#view=TmV9TW

 

The current price for this whole build is $1,546.70, and that's WAY too much. I want a pc that's at least under $1,000, if possible. 

 

If you guys can, leave a pc part or build that can be good for gaming, at least 300 fps, and can run those high-spec games (GTA V for example). 

 

Thanks! ~Arashi

Quick Question: Does the price of the monitor and headphones add into the $1000?

At the current moment, no it does not! Hmm, then again, I could be wrong. (Looking at the monitor)

I hope you're not expecting to run 300 FPS on all games...

 

Anyway, here's some things that you can save cash on:

 

You've paired an expensive CPU cooler and a Z170 with a CPU you cannot overclock. Either get a K-series CPU or get a B150 with a cheaper cooler instead. Speaking of which, you don't even need an i7 if you're only gaming.

 

The reference cooler of the GTX 970 is subpar. At $370 you're overpaying for it when you can get one with a better cooler for $70 less.

 

750W for a GTX 970 is way too much. You'll be fine with the 550W variant of the EVGA G2.

 

For a $1000 build, get an SSD. Makes a world of difference.

you could save $100 since there is no point to water cool your cpu with a non-k, almost $400 for a 970 is a bit too much

for that price you could get a pre-build like this

r9 390's are going for less than $300 on sale with 8gb vram so i would go for that instead

 


if i post a link to amazon try to use the LTT affiliate code to help the channel http://www.amazon.com/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&tag=linustechtips-20

You'll obviously not get 300FPS in all games with this build, but this is, by far, the most bang for the buck.

The problem is that this is an nVidia product and scoring any nVidia product a "zero" is also highly predictive of the number of nVidia products the reviewer will receive for review in the future.

I wasn't wrong. It's extremely rare that I am. I provided sources as well. Different devs can disagree. Further, we now have confirmed discrepancy from Twitter about he use of the pre-release 1080 driver in AMD's demo despite the release 1080 driver having been out a week prior.

You apparently haven't seen his responses to questions on YouTube. He is very condescending and aggressive in his comments with which there is little justification. He acts totally different in his videos. I don't necessarily care for this content style and there is nothing really unique about him or his channel. His endless dick jokes and toilet humor are annoying as well.

Use this as a reference. If you are overclocking this is best for you. If not then consider this:

What would be your recommendation? On the CPU I ment.

As someone already pointed out, the processor + cooler + mobo choice doesn't really make much sense. If you're going with the i7 6700, don't waste over $100 on the cooler for something that can do perfectly fine with something costing under $40 (Cryorig H7, it's better than the 212). I'd also up the DDR4 speed since it actually matters with Skylake--though, you'd need a Z series chipset to use such speed. GPU seems overpriced considering a few short months we get Pascal. PSU choice is fine. Leaves room for SLI in the future if you're into that.

Have you though of the AMD side of GPUS. they perform better for the money. The r9 390 performs better than the GTX 970 for the  same price?

Are you going to be overclocking? If not, the i5 6500 with a decent aftermarket air cooler like the Cryorig H7.

 

If you are, then get the i5 6600K.

Hmm, actually I have not. However, I was recommended a lot instead of the intel.

  1. Replace the Core i7 6700 with a Core i5 6600k to take advantage of the overclocking capability of your motherboard and your AIO watercooling loop instead. With a decent overclock, it'll perform better in games too.
  2. Use the money you save to get an R9 390x instead of your GTX 970.
  3. Enjoy a much more optimized PC.

Or he could keep his parts and the assurance of quality-control with a high-end Z170 MSI board, and get a 6600k to overclock and a 390x instead, seeing as he appears to be willing to spend up to $1600 anyway.

I wonder if there's something in the parts list competition that I can recommend...

His part list is a lot less frugal than his quote, but sure, @Shahnewaz has the best possible build for the buck, and he's left room for the Viewsonic VX 2457 75Hz 1080p freesync monitor and some nice peripherals too.

Hmm well, first, is overclocking dangerous at all, or no? 

 

Well, let me rephrase, is overclocking a good choice? Like what are the pros and cons on it?

the R9 390, for this price range. And if u have a 1000 bucks more get the R9 390x. 

 

If for some reason you can not buy these gpus for 300 or 400, get the R9 380

No, it isn't. You've got to try hard to actually damage the CPU.

 

Yes, it's a good choice. You're basically squeezing extra performance out of a CPU. Con-wise, you're going to have spend more money and have slightly higher temps depending on how far you overclock and how good your CPU cooler is.

Hmm, so from what I'm hearing, more performance, but it'll be hella hot in a room.
