I need help building a PC

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello all,

 

I would like to ask for some help in creating a new PC. I need help with my parts as I'm not sure if they are all compatible so your replies would be appreciated greatly.

 

This build will be mainly used as a gaming PC for all new triple A titles. I will be gaming at 1080p until i get a 1440p or 4k monitor, for now i would like to reach 60fps at ultra in 1080p. Will this build be able to do it? Secondarily i will be using it as a school homework station with some occasional video editing and photoshop use. Your recommendations are welcome and appreciated.

 

These parts are what i think I've decided on so far with cablemod cables...

 

CPU: Intel core i5-6600k

GPU: Nvidia gtx 1070 (need help picking a card but I want it to be a 1070)

Motherboard: ASUS Z170-AR

RAM: 2x8gb or 4x4gb of DDR4 at fastest clock speed (fastest clock speed and whichever works better as in configuration for my CPU choice)

PSU: Any recommended 650 watt fully modular

Case: NZXT S340 Glossy black

 

Thankyou.

That looks great :) I would personally recommend an EVGA 1070, depending on your budget, either SC or FTW. I would also recommend an EVGA power supply because they offer a great warranty. The rest of it looks solid!


Please quote me if you are replying so that I get a notification. Also, mark my answer as "correct" if I've answered your question :)

If you're gonna use it as a workstation, Why not pick the I7-6700k?

For PSU, EVGA G2 Supernova 650W is a great power suppy.

For RAM go with 2x8GB since you can upgrade later on.

Videocard is mostly what you like, but i think the EVGA 1070 SC FTW gaming 3.0 is a great choice

I would suggest any 2x8GB DDR4 kit. Clock speed and latency numbers will not make any noticeable difference in real-life usage.

If you plan to game at 1080p, go for the GTX 1060 (I particularly prefer Asus and Gigabyte), it can handle any game at 1080p Ultra and 60FPS, if you want to go for 4k or 1440p in the future without having to upgrade your GPU, go for the 1070 (not that the 1060 doesn't handle 4k and 1440p, but the 1070 is better)
