    If you go TR4 you'll basically be just going with the 1900X+Mobo ... which covers nearly the entire budget. Honestly I'd say in that case going with the 2700X is probably better unless you absolutely need Quad Channel Memory support.
    For AM4 at that budget for CPU+Mobo I could really only suggest the 2700X along with a few of the top tier boards. Should also get a good aftermarket cooler. Maybe something like a Dark Rock Pro 4 or performance equivalent if you are looking to air cool.
    For 1151 Coffee Lake CPUs ... 8700k+Top Tier Board+Cooling solution fits inside $1000.
    For 2700X you could go with something like this:

    Cooler @ max is ~8 Decibels louder than the Dark Rock Pro 4, and the benches I've seen put it in the same performance tier.

    Make the damn 15" models a little thicker, fit a real cooler in them and a bigger battery.

    If the PC stands still at one place then you dont need to screw it in at all.

    Heck, it doesnt even have to be inside the PC, not even standing upright.

    rtpb5642 reacted to porina in Is It Even Possible to Build Cheap Anymore?   
    It is more difficult, I'll give it that, but I think where there's a will, there's a way. It does alter the value perception of some things.
    I think the Intel-RTG combo CPU is interesting for a mainstream gaming system. And because each GPU part is attached to an Intel CPU part, you can be sure the miners wont touch it as ROI will take forever.
    While no reasonable person likes spending more than they have to, I don't think it really impacts high end system builders. A few hundred local currency units here or there isn't going to be felt as much as on a budget build. Xps are still available from nvidia it seems, at the same price they have been.
    Was only looking recently, typical used 980Ti is about 2/3 the cost of a new 1070 if you can find one, and they're about same performance level.

    For some reason the ram is showing up in the "other" section.
    I stayed on the lower side of the budget. With the remaining budget I'd get a ssd, more ram, or a R5 1400.
    Edit: Also it looks like the motherboard doesn't have the greatest of reviews. I'd look for a similar board for ~$60-70

    rtpb5642 reacted to Bouzoo in [Possibly fake] AMD losing 100+ dollars on every vega sold   
    This shouldn't matter in the end because I've yet to see a Vega card that is selling below $600 (or $649 for that matter), and that's in the US. God forbid you look on other continents. You can bet AMD is not losing money. 
    Someone will correct me if the unicorn exists.
