First PC build need some help in New Builds and Planning Posted February 21 2 hours ago, lee32uk said: The op is here for advice on a pc. Maybe he doesn't know what parts are best suited for his needs. It is easy to go on pcpartpicker and select the most expensive part. Anyone can do that. The fact is we should be giving advice on what is best for the op's needs. If he wants to ignore it and buy a 5950X then that is up to him, but I stand by my comment that it is stupid to spend nearly £900 on a cpu if you are just gaming. We don't even know what the op is using the system for, so not sure anyone can suggest a build yet. @IAmJuice What is the pc being used for ? Fact is we should be giving the OP advice based upon his needs and wants. Yes he is free to do as he pleases, but calling his decision to go with a 16 core Stupid because it is your opinion is that having a PC that is more powerful than necessary is wrong. Stand by your comment... but recognize that it is your opinion and nothing else. So it is your Opinion that that choice is "Stupid". The same "stupid" logic the OP is applying here is applied everyday by you and me and billions of others to a multitude of other life decisions and is not called stupid. Next time you buy anything other than a used compact car, a used low end smartphone, a house with any more space than absolutely necessary, a hamburger that costs more than a Mcdonalds cheeseburger, a beer pricier than a keystone light, a pair of shoes other than from walmart,... think about how "stupid" your decision is.
