First PC, no clue whatsoever.

Hi,

 

Im a playstation guy from the Netherlands, but im tired of playing at 30FPS...

 

So I decided to build my own PC as a nice hobby project.

 

My 3 demands are:

 

- Most games should run at 144FPS on 1080p. (Just got a new MSI MAG241C monitor)

- It should last me for atleast 2 years before upgrading. 

- VR ready would be very nice. (Might be something I wanna give a try)

 

For the looks, I like red and black.

 

I have no clue for any set price yet. 

 

Tips would be very welcome.

 

Thanks

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

here is a quick list I made:

ryzen 5 and 1060 6g (no 580's on the market) if you want a better gpu you can go with a 1070ti or 1070

vr ready

16gs of ram easily upgradable if you ever need more

everything is black and red

 

extra fan for a push pull set up(cheapest one i could find)

If I pick a case with an USB-C port (So I can hook up my MacBook and such), would that change anything else to the configuration?

You should be looking at an AMD gpu as you have a FreeSync monitor. A Vega 64 is the best you can buy at the minute on the AMD side.

Some of this build look fine, but he did say he wanted to game at 144 fps... so you are going to need a little more beefy GPU. I haven't seen a price point set yet by OP but I would lean more towards something like this.

 

 

As you can see mine is very similar to yours, but for the FPS requested he will need a beefier video vard. The 1070ti is the best value in that area atm. The rest is just components I would use if building this for a friend. FYI HDD where he lives are stupid expensive... they wanted like 150 for a 2tb drive....

Im not sure if its worth using FreeSync to be honest, havent heard any great stories about.

Yes, very expensive. We can buy AMD here. I think Newegg delivers some.

Yes definitly 144 fps. 

 

As for price, I dont want an over-expensive PC for the purpose it serves. 

 

Are there any options for me to get components cheaper in other countries?

After you calculate shipping... probably not

Then why buy a Freesync Monitor ? You could have just gone with a standard 144Hz screen without Freesync.

Best looking monitor with 144hz in lower price range. I could've saved 50 bucks, but im gonna be looking at it for sometime so it better not be ugly.

I would still suggest an AMD gpu though, even if you can only afford a lower end RX580 etc. And you should use Freesync as you will get a smoother gaming experience with it, as it should mostly eliminate stuttering/tearing.
