need help with a new build

rasfsfsd
 Share

my budget is AUD$2000-$2200

the build will be used for streaming (not often), editing (adobe) and gaming. gaming will be the main focus of the build 

i prefer if it say a nvidia card as i may end up with a g-sync monitor.

i also need some rgb led fans

i was given the case so i dont need one

This should be more than enough for all your tasks. Plenty of cores for the streaming and editing, and a fantastic GPU for pretty much any game. You could downgrade to a 1070/1070 Ti if you wanted to save a couple hundred dollars. Both cards will perform great at 1080p 144Hz. You can also downgrade to a 250GB SSD if you want to save a nother $50 or so, but extra SSD storage is always great to have.

So you want RGB, if you want an addressable LED setup pay attention to the Mobo LED pin connector. Make sure it is compatible with addressable LEDs. This way you can either but compatible kits or build your own with APA102 LEDs and a Arduino(or Rasberry Pie).

If you go diy you can get far brighter and smoother color transitions than any kit. Not very plug and play though, it is quite involved. For the time being I would shower ever for a 1080(or 1080 TI if you score a middle of the night deal... $480 for my TI)

 Def. an i7-8700k paired with a Z390 RGB Mobo. PcPartPicker can help you make sure it is all compatible.

  That should get you rolling in the right direction.

No, but you can get a wireless adapter like any one of these.

No such thing. I picked it because 550 watts is pushing it, in terms of being too small, and that 750W unit was the same price or cheaper than any 650W unit, and it's very high quality.

alright sweet. thanks for the help i wil look over the build and change a few parts. last couple of things. will the board let me overclock if i ever need to. and is it worth going up to the 2700x

It's not terrible. My first time I spent a lot of time doing research. The hardest part is making sure everything is the same type of led. That and learning how to upload to Arduino or Rasberry Pie if you have never done that before. The alternative to doing any programming is get a controller that has all the effects you want, find out what LEDs that controller used and just buy your own strips of LEDs. It is a lot cheaper. Just be aware the pre set controller may only allow up to so many LEDs due to programming. There are a ton of tutorials but I will tell you honestly, it is time consuming and you couldn't spend not than a set if you mess up. But that is the price for knowledge sometimes. 

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed doing my own but I also have an electrical background too, so. I recommend doing some research on it and seeing if it is what is right for you. I ultimately went on to make my own Christmas lights and program them to music so learning this has much larger possibilities too.

Either way enjoy the build!

That board has 2 50/50 LED connectors and one addressable. Not sure why on earth you would both giving it a 50/50 connector when sb2812 and apa102 LEDs exist. Overall though it should work. I have never worked with MSI's LED controls. mostly ASUS and some Giga. However it does list many companies that it is compatible with so I don't see why it shouldn't work.

Here is a link to how I bypass the limitations put out by the MOBO LED controller when using the on board controller and not an Arduino. Keep in mind you have to power it as they state from the PSU.
