First Build Plan. Any Suggestions?

better build. way better gaming performance for 300 less. 

the 1060 is useless now to buy new. you have the 2060 or 1660ti for same price and way better performance. 

Rig 1: i7-9700k OC'd to 5.0ghz all core | EVGA XC RTX 2080Ti | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 4x8gb | ASUS PRIME Z370-P | Asetek 550LC 120mm | ADATA 480GB SSD & Toshiba P300 3TB | Cooler Master Masterbox MB500 | Win 10 Home | Logitech G910 Orion Spectrum, G502 Proteus Spectrum, G933 Artemis Spectrum Snow Wireless Limited Edition, Corsair MM300 Mouse Pad | 2 MSI Optix Curved 27" FHD Monitors 

 

(before i sold the WD drive and MSI gpu - https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/11946219 171 gaming. felt good.)

 

Rig 2: i7-7700k Stock clocks | MSI Armor GTX 1070 | ADATA DDR4 2400mhz 2x8GB | MSI Z270 A-Pro | WD Green 240GB SSD & 2TB Seagate HDD | Thermaltake Core G21 Tempered Glass Edition | Win 10 Home | 2 HP Omen FHD 144hz 24.5" Monitors 

 

Rig 3: i7-6700 | GT 730 & GT 645 OEM | Some random DDR4 2133mhz 2x8gb sticks | OEM Dell Mobo | WD Black 2TB HDD & Toshiba 1TB HDD | Win 10 Home | 3 27" Dell FHD Monitors 

 

Rig 4: i7-4770 | EVGA SSC 1050ti | Some random DDR3 ram 2x2gb and 2x4gb sticks | OEM Dell Mobo | Stock Cooler | 1TB WD Black HDD | Win 7 Home 

 

RIP

The motherboard is straight up overkill. A regular Asus z370 strix will do just fine. Use that extra money to upgrade the gpu to a 1070

Hi. So I am about to get a job and am planning on building a decent $1500 gaming rig. Here is my current parts list:  https://pcpartpicker.com/user/NerdBot2021/saved/4mqGGX Any suggestions, comments, or past experiences with these parts I should know about?

 

It depends what you want the PC for? gaming, streaming, workstation ect. For anything you should remember is DONT FORGET TO PUT THE IO SHIELD IN haha the amount of times I have done this haha.

Okay, thanks. I will probably still go high than a strix because I would like the error output and onboard power buttons. But downgrading to a z370 is a great idea.

I really want the power of an i7 cause it would have hyperthreading, but thanks anyways.

I would suggest the following:

CPU: AMD Ryzen 3, 5 or 7 3rd Gen because of the better price: performance ratio

GPU: RTX2060 or GTX1660 because of the GDDR6 capabilities and as you have a $1,500 budget for gaming, a better GPU would be better than a high-end CPU

RAM: For performance, a single 1x16GB would be better for performance

Storage: For Gaming, you'll need more storage than 500GB. I recommend a Seagate Barracuda 2TB (256MB Cache) for storage and games but for the boot drive, use an M.2 SSD (SATA is cheap, NVMe is better but expensive)

I know it's silly but I am set on an Asus motherboard, for their bios.

Oh okay, I'd say the motherboard is a bit overkill, you could save some money and maybe get a slightly better GPU or something, not that the GPU isn't good cos it will handle almost all games just fine but might be worth a different motherboard. Also, 32GB RAM is a bit overkill 16 GB will be just fine for all games, I've never really encountered a game that's needed more than 16.

The Z390 AORUS MASTER is just as good as any Asus Strix motherboard, even when overclocking. Asus boards are overpriced, it just isn't worth paying more for the BIOS, even if it is a bit better.

the only asus boards i would say are worth getting on z390 are the maximus gene, apex and extreme

 

all the others are just straight up overpriced

i mean, fat 4 vs 12 with doublers (yes asus, doublers), what do you expect?
