Hello everyone, 

I am planning on building my own 1st rig and done some research of this and that. But I am not that confident so I am reaching out to you people of the PC Master Race. 

 

Here are the specs that I personally choose--

 

CPU: AMD - Ryzen 7 2700 3.2 GHz   or   Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz
Cooler: I will be using the cooler stock
Mobo: MSI - X470 GAMING PLUS ATX AM4
RAM: G.Skill- Ripjaws V Series 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200Mhz Memory
SSD: Samsung - 860 Evo 250 GB
HDD: Western Digital- BLACK SERIES 1 TB 3.5" 7200RPM 
Video Card: MSI- GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB GAMING X
Case: Corsair Carbide SPEC- 06 
PSU: EVGA - SuperNOVA G2 650W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular
Fans: Corsair SP120 3-Pack 

 

Monitor: ZOWIE XL2411P 144Hz 24 inch e-Sports Monitor 1920 x 1080 (or any decent gaming monitor that have 144Hz g-sync 1920 x 1080)

 

Questions:
1. Will there be any issues like bottlenecking?
2.Should I get 2700x or 2700? (really prefer Ryz 7 2nd gen and its a good price compare to intel that needs a cooler)

3.Is it okay to get 1080 Ti 11GB GAMING X or should I get 1080 version instead?

4.Do I need higher WATT on the PSU? (For safety purpose)

5.What am I missing?

 

Thanks in advance and Happy gaming...

PS. The country that I live in have very limited parts and these are the only parts that really match my preference.

Go with the 2700 and a better cooler, that you can pverclock it to about 4-4.2 GHz for max performance and stick to the 1080ti or go with a 2080 which is about the same performance

and make sure that you ram is compatible with your mobo, because ryzen sometimes has problems with some ram

don't waste money on G-sync, you don't need a 1080ti for a 1080p monitor


What budget/country? What do you need the PC for?

I edit my posts a lot, Twitter is @LordStreetguru just don't ask PC questions there mostly...

What is your budget/country for your new PC?

 

what monitor resolution/refresh rate?

 

What games or other software do you need to run?

1. not really

2. 2700, 1700 is pretty cheap these days, consider that one too with something like a artic freezer 33 esports one

3. 1080 ti is marginally better

4. you could even go lower

5. Zowie has a high rma rate, be aware for that. what is your budget and location? I'll make something myself then

- Note that in any system, there will always be bottlenecking, just depends on how bad. You should be fine with a 2700X/2700 + 1080 Ti. RAM is fine too.

 

-It may be more worth it to spend more for a 2700x for the better stock cooler and higher clock speeds.

 

-Either a 1080 Ti or 1080 is fine, note that the 1080Ti may have an inflated price due to low stock, and you should consider an RTX 2080/2070 too, assuming they are at a reasonable price

 

-650W should be enough but increasing to 750W won’t do harm

 

-Thermal paste. If you’re overclocking, Thermal Grizzly Kryonaut. If not, then something like Arctic MX-4 will do.

 

-1080/1080Ti are overkill for 1080p. You might want to look at 1440p 144Hz monitors without G-Sync, as most of screen tearing is eliminated with 144Hz. Unless you only do esports(like csgo),  then a 1080p Gsync TN 240hz monitor might make more sense. For 1080p 144Hz, a 1070Ti is sufficient for most games, maybe 1070 or even 1060 6GB.

If all you want to do is game at 1080p 144Hz, a Ryzen 5 2600/2600X and a GTX 1070 will be great, and won't cost as much. If you want to go for 8 cores, the 2700 is a great CPU. And if you want a better GPU, I would recommend a 1070 Ti over a 1080 or 1080 Ti, since it performs almost as well as a 1080, and is considerably less. And like I said before, a 1070 is all you need for 1080p 144Hz. Your PSU is fine.

F@H Team Rank: 42                                                              A single, faster GPU is better than two slower ones in SLI

1: not really

2: 2700 is my prefered pic, saves you money and to reach the same speed you barely need to do anything

3: 1080 TI is a good pick but idk if its great for 1080p

4: nope

5: nothing i can think of is critically missing here. someone mentioned thermal paste but that comes preapplied so dont bother buying any, especially not with the stock cooler

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally)...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

Hello everyone, 

I

Apart from the budget as you didn't mention it i would say this:
1.No
2.2700 if you don't care about overclocking(also a b450 mobo would be nice if not overclocking)
3.RTX 2080 or Vega64(depending on the price you find it), 2080 would be futureproof, vega is on par with a 1080 but amd cards age much better due to drivers. Both futureproof and more than excellent choices for 1080p gaming(vega56 or 1070ti would also be great choices for that monitor).
4.No, but would advise to go for a Seasonic Prime 650 for a bit of better quality and more room for upgrades.
5. If you can increase the budget go at least for the 4TB version of wd black cause it's new and has enormous cache of 256 mb
6. I d prefer the Asrock Taichi instead of the MSI gaming.

*I edited cause i quoted all of your original post.

What budget/country? What do you need the PC for?

Hmm so i'll just go with 1080 version?

I live in the middle-east...   --hmm Mostly gaming with High-end games maybe some productivity too who knows.

Then buy a Ryzen 8 core, but if the 1700 is way cheaper just go with that, performance difference is maybe 10%, Ryzen 3000 is likely to be a large jump

The RX 570/580 GTX 1060 are all fine for 1080p, if you need higher graphical settings get a used 980ti, GTX 1070 or 1070ti(same performance as a 1080 with a 5 second OC)
 

Should get a case that has a mesh front so it actually has airflow though, like a fractal focus G, or Silverstone RL06, or Coolermaster H500 Mesh
