New Gaming PC - Hoping to make sure everything is compatible

 I would greatly appreciate any feed back on the rig, compatability, functionality, or any response at all, I'm pretty happy with the components but I'd be open to any advice. I'd also like to buy it all on Amazon if i could.

 

Price Point - less than 1500 USD:

PCPartPicker shows this build to be around $1300 after mail in rebate

 

Intended Purpose - Gaming mostly I dont need the most top of the line just something decent enough for the price

Reason - I'm ready to move away from console gaming and get the experience that I've gotten a taste of on other people's gaming rigs and I think this rig will look great

Monitor - For now I'm going to use my 4k UHD TV but later on I'm thinking that I might upgrade to a dual monitor 1080 or 1440

Extras - I'm only planning to use a wireless usb keyboard mouse combo(I'm really leaning towards corsair k63 mechanical keyboard with the lap desk and 2.4 ghz wireless mouse

 

Parts list - 

Microsoft - Windows 10 Home OEM 64-bit

EVGA - SuperNOVA G3 750 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Corsair - SPEC-OMEGA RGB ATX Mid Tower Case

MSI - GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6 GB GT OCV1 Video Card

Samsung - 860 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive

Corsair - Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-2666 Memory

Asus - Prime Z370-A ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

Cooler Master - Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler

Intel - Core i5-9600K 3.7 GHz 6-Core Processor

What on earth is wrong with your formatting. The top is horrendous.

  • I'd get a better case.
  • Don't get the G3 PSU, go for the G2.
  • Don't get that CPU cooler, it's trash.
  • Get a better GPU.

Personally I'd wait for CES and see what AMD has to bring to the table. It's kinda foolish to be buying anything with the announcements so close.

This is a good build. I would do this one.

 

Money saved in CPU to put more money toward GPU. You could also probably go with a better case like the Fractal design Meshify C which is an excellent case with numerous areas of airway flow.

Trust me, this rig wont do 4k, very few rigs can. This could play ultra 1080p or high 1440p

Yeah I'm honestly not dying for the highest graphics (as sinful as that is yo say lol) I've been gaming (essentially minecraft and torchlight 2 on the lowest settings) for years on a 12 year old Asus laptop and everything else has been console so honestly 1080 would make me very happy and I wouldn't know what to do with myself at 1440 lol. Thanks for your help!!!

Welcome to the forum.

Sorry about the formatting, I'm doing this on my phone and my formatting was great before I submitted it but of course everything shifted because I'm on my phone and it looks ridiculous, sorry lol 

 

But my only thing is I'm really digging the case (I know that's like pc building rule #1 not to do that but I cant help it) but I'll check out some other compatible coolers, any recommendations on GPUs?? I kinda got overwhelmed by the choices.. thanks for your help!!

The RX580 is basically on par performance wise, significantly cheaper, and comes with two free games.

That does sound like a sweet build, even if it is a little more money... but I'll have to think on it, I honestly dont really need 4k it's just the TV I have now and in my room I dont really have space for a desk so I'll have to use the TV just for now and maybe later upgrade to a nice dual monitor display or something.. thanks for your help!!!

If you're just looking for a basic gaming build, go with the 2600 build @Herman Mcpootis had, much better value imo

Yeah I liked that one, the only thing is I know it's kind of silly but I really do like the majority of my components if you think they'll do decent.. I did look into the cooler you suggested, but will it be compatible with the board in my original build?? Also I would be open to suggestions for the PSU and GPU because i didnt really know what to do for those... but everything else I kinda like as long as there will be no problems with compatibility?? I really do appreciate the suggestions, sorry I'm too focused on aesthetics lol

I wouldnt go anything near what you had in your original build, it was pretty unbalanced. I wouldnt go past 550w, and for gpu I'd aim for the 2070. 1070ti if not. No problems with compatibility

If I were to upgrade later wouldn't it do good to use a higher wattage PSU since it's not that big of a price difference?? But for the GPU, is there a specific brand or model you could link me to?? Sorry I'm not very versed in the the GPU stuff... I guess since graphics arent at the forefront of my mind ya know??

If you're not an overclocking enthusiast or going for nvlink there's no point of anything past 550w. For GPU EVGA, Asus, and MSI are the better of the bunch. I personally prefer EVGA for their CS.

Yeah I'm not planning on overclocking if I can avoid and still play my favorite titles with decent frames at mid-high settings but wow the 2070s and 1070tis from those brands are really really high... but I'll look into the psu thing, I really appreciate your help with all this though
