Any and all input is helpful,

Thank you

GTX 1060 from eBay will do nicely

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

The combination of CPU and GPU BRANDS is absolutelly irrelevant. A 590 will not work better with an AMD processor, in fact it will most likely work worse due to higher driver overhead (or used to, last time i heard about this was a while ago. THis might be a thing of the past).

I would get a chepaer case and PSU like these:

Corsair CX450M https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FQ648d/corsair-power-supply-cp9020101na

and

Phanteks P300 if you really need the tempered glass https://pcpartpicker.com/product/FCs8TW/phanteks-eclipse-p300-tempered-glass-atx-mid-tower-case-ph-ec300ptgbk

There are probably better cases at the price point without tempered glass.
Get 2 Sticks of ram for dual channel.
and i would never ever ever buy a motherboard with 2 RAM slots outside of an ITX form factor board.


Working on your build. Posting my suggestion in few minutes.

honestly, just go with whatever is cheaper

 

if you want better power efficiency, go with 1060.

What is wrong with only the two ram slots? will it not run as well on two? looking to get an identical stick in the near future.

My recommendation:

  • mobo has 4 slots,
  • dual channel ram,
  • found a low offer for a 1070,
  • more SSD storage, speeds are fine on that, a bit cheaper,
  • cheaper case,
  • cheaper but still adequate PSU

I did not check for memory QVL. I am frankly to lazy. you can if you want to or have someone else do.

Is this still within budget?

it will run just as well until you want to add 2 more sticks of ram ... which you frankly will since 8 is not enough but 16 will probably be enoguh for a long while so you can go with 2x4 for dual channel now and 16 in the future :)

Just saw this incredible deal, the R9 fury is 1070 lever performance (give or take) so that makes this an amazing deal.

Thanks for your input, i already have the CPU and PSU so ill just finish it off with that 4 ram slot mobo, with the dual channel (2x8) ram, the p300 case, and the 1070 GPU. Thank you all!

I got a used asus strix 980ti for $200 off craigslist, and 2x evga 980ti's off ebay for $425.

 

You cant go wrong, you can get them under $250 and much better than a 1060 6gb, which I have also.

 

Then upgrade in the future

 

Edit - if you're willing to go up to around $300 you can get a used 1070ti if you shop around.

 

Nothing wrong with buying a used gpu

CPU: Intel i5-9600k | MoBo: Gigabyte Aorus Elite z390 | RAM: 16gb (4 x 4gb) Crucial Ballistix Sport LT DDR4-2400

GPU: Gigabyte Aorus Xtreme 1080ti | Storage: 500gb Samsung 860 vNand SSD x2 & 1tb WD Caviar Blue HDD

Chassis: NZXT h700i White w/ RGB LED | Cooling: Corsair H100i Pro RGB AIO & 6x Corsair AF120 fans White LED

Screens: 2x 27" Acer HA270 Ultra Slim LED | Peripherals: MSI Interceptor RGB DS4200 Key & D200 Mouse
