Hello guys,

Okay thanks dude. Yeah I’ll be honest I know it’s overkill for my gaming needs but wanted a strong cpu for the streaming. As me and a friend are seriously perusing YouTube content creation

No ssd? How about a 500gb ssd and add a hard-drive later? Maybe a MX500 or something that have a dram.

The Gigabyte p650b power supply hasn't got any reviews and looks suspicious. Gigabyte have been known to have some real stinkers when it comes to power supplies in the past (hercules for example). Paying a bit more for a Corsair TXM for example would be a much safer choice.

 

I'd also change the ram to a higher speed, 3000mhz would be a much better choice and only costs a tiny bit more (Or less maybe, since 89.99 isn't particularly great for 2666)

Okay yeah sounds good. I’ll change the power supply. Any ideas for the ram?

I’ll go with the RGB thanks a lot dude. So would this all work then if I changed the ram to 3000, changed to the Corsair power supply and removed the hard drive and added ssd?

I’m gonna use the Corsair txm mate. Would there be any bottleneck with my cpu and gpu. Not sure what is actually means but I’m hearing the word a lot.

Either one of these cards would be faster for only a little more. Better price to performance on both. The 5700 is the faster one, although it has a blower cooler.

Yes and no, but mostly yes and no again. For your games not really 100+ something.

It's a bit louder, and would run a little hotter.

Hey guys. So I’m looking to build a pc. I have designed one I think is good, however just need some advice on it. I will be using the pc for gaming and video editing and rendering. The games I play aren’t really very demanding with the highest spec game being fortnite. I’ve built a mid spec pc so that if I did decide to play  other high end games then I would still be able to. Can you look at the design below and tell me if everything would fit together and make sure there isn’t gonna be any problems or bottlenecking??? As I hear this term a lot. I don’t really want to spend any more because it’s quite expensive as is. But if there is anything seriously wrong I will make the adjustment. Here is the rig;

 

CPU - AMD Ryzen 7 2700 processor with wraith spire RGB LED cooler (£188.98)

Graphic card - EVGA GeForce RTX 2060 XC Black Gaming, 6GB GDDR6, HDB Fan, Graphics Card 06G-P4-2061-KR (£299.99)

Motherboard - MSI B450 TOMAHAWK Socket AM4 ATX Motherboard for AMD Ryzen Processors (£89.99)

RAM - Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4 3000 MHz C15 XMP 2.0 Enthusiast RGB LED Illuminated Memory Kit - Black (£86.49)

Power supply - Corsair TX-M Series 650 Watt 80 Plus Gold Certified PSU (UK) Hybrid Modular Power Supply Unit - Black (£74.99)

SSD - Western Digital WDS500G2B0A WD Blue 3D NAND Internal SSD 2.5 Inch SATA, 500 GB (£56.99)

Case - NZXT H500 – Compact ATX Mid-Tower Case – Tempered Glass Panel – All-Steel Construction – Enhanced Cable Management System – Water-Cooling Ready - Black (£69.98)

Would you be able to leave a link for me to check it out. I think one is priced at 339 and one 389. I wouldn’t mind upgrading to that if it’s needed. The pc previously was 867. I can go s little higher if needed

The 5700 is priced around £339 whilst the 5700XT is priced around £389. I would recommend either above the vanilla RTX2060. RTX2070 super is faster than any of the graphics cards I mentioned but it's also a good bit more expensive than the others.

 

Also, with respect to your processor choice (2700X) - have you considered the 3600? It's 6c/12t as opposed to the 8c/16t 2700X but it's also been shown to outperform the 2700X in gaming and most content creation work. Just wanted to mention it.

Okay I’ll get the 5700xt as the graphics card. Also I was only going to get the 2700 not the 2700x. Do you think it would be better to downgrade to the ryzen 5 3600 and upgrade the gpu to the 5700xt. Also I’ve just seen the pc build you posted. Would that be better ? Or would my build be better if I made the changes you mentioned. Just to let you know, I’m not planning to do any overclocking
