  1. @JM21 Okay, so here's the final build. Going with a 8700k, with the ROG Strix z370-H, 16 GB of Ripjaws V, and the H115i AIO, my question about that is, 1 is it better than the Noctua that I had before? And 2 should I replace the fans that come with it, with the Noctua NF-A14 that I had already planned on buying? Also found a better deal for a better monitor, going to go with the Dell S2417DG 2560x1440 165Hz. Also, the EVGA Geforce GTX 1080 8GB Superclocked card you had recommended. Here's the parts list. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JBTB2R
  2. What would your recommendation be then? What is the difference between R7 1700 and X variant, which motherboard would be good for those chips? Lastly I guess how do they compare to say the 7700k or 8700k? Which Ryzen would be comparable to them? Also if I went AMD route, would the cpu cooler still be okay? And again thank you for the help, this is all rather new to me, and it's a ton of information to take in.
  3. My intentions for this pc are all over the place. I have a older amd pc that has worked well for me in the past but as I start to do more it doesn't keep up. Gaming (from Minecraft to GTA) really just a mix of everything. Video rendering Photoshop Website creation and design Streaming both youtube and twitch Media Server streaming to my Xbox and ps4 (not always running, just on movie nights)
  4. @JM21 I guess the real reason I choose the 7700k over the 8700k is that I'm eager to build it now, was looking at the 8700k at first but couldn't find it anywhere in store or online, then did a search and read sites that said it wouldn't be available til Q1 of 2018, which to be fair I really do not know what means except I'd have to wait 3 to 4 months unless I spent more to get it off eBay. So from what I gather, drop my ram to 16gb (2 8gb sticks) and maybe wait it out till the 8700k is more readily available.
  5. So I am planning my first build, I have some concerns though. Do you think I'll have bottlenecks? Is my cpu cooler enough? Is my monitor good enough? Maybe the parts won't mesh well together. Any advice is accepted and appreciated. Also I'd like to stay in the 2500 to 2700 price range. So please let me know what changes I could make or what you would make.
