New Gaming/Video Editing PC - advice on my parts list

Go to solution Solved by Noob1337,

The power supply should be fine.

But what I really should point out is your CPU of choice

I would recommend getting the Ryzen 7 3700X with a beafy CPU cooler and overclocking it slightly.

 

Its a similar case to the Ryzen 7 1800x and Ryzen 7 1700x

i'm still rocking my Ryzen 7 1700x at 1800x speeds!

 

 

Hi all

I'm new here, looking for advice on a hopefully pretty solid parts list for my new gaming/video editing rig.
I always build my own rigs, but it is 6 years ago when I completed my current rig and it is time for a replacement.

Goal:
Overall very solid rig with a price point around 2000$ (I live in Switzerland so it is the currency CHF, but it is about the same as $ at current rates). Used for video editing (lots of 2k GoPro vids) in a project (up to 100 per project) and Gaming. Looking to buy also a new 2560x1440 monitor to bundle with 2 Dell 1080p monitors as a 3 monitor setup. I don't play a lot of AA titles, but I want the capability.

Here is my current list, please advice if I overlooked some compatibility issues. For the GPU, I want to go either RTX 2060S or 2070S, I currently have a great deal on a Gigabyte 2070S at least for Switzerland, so it might be worth to get it.

I have the whole build in this gsheet, but if you prefer to read in bullets, I copied it in the text below
 

  • AMD Ryzen 7 3800X (AM4, 3.90GHz, 8-Core)
  • Gigabyte X470 Aorus Gaming 7 (AM4, AMD X470, ATX)
  • Gigabyte GeForce RTX 2070S Windforce OC (8GB)
    • current deal is for CHF 489 instead of CHF 546
    • I know the Gaming OC version is better but doesn't have the deal and comes in at CHF 580
  • Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro (2x, 16GB, DDR4-3200, DIMM 288)
  • Samsung 970 EVO Plus (1000GB, M.2 2280)
  • Corsair Crystal 570X RGB
  • Corsair RM850 *2019* (850W)
  • As a new monitor I consider: ASUS ROG Swift PG279Q (27", 2560 x 1440 pixels) or Dell UltraSharp U2719D as alternative
    • as written above, bundled with two 1920x1200 Dell monitors on each side


So yeah, I'm looking for some advice on whether this is a solid build or if I should change some components.

 

Three things I'm especially unsure:

1.) Power Supply - I found the Corsair RM850 on a website and also got recommended the Seasonic Focus GX (850W). On this website there are so many more but to be honest, I have absolutely no idea what PS would fit my build the most, be it brand, type, watts.

2.) Should I upgrade to a X570 instead of a X470

3.) GPU - well I was aiming for a 2060S but giving the deal above, I think I gotta go 2070S

Appreciate any feedback.

hey man - thx.

I know that the 3700X is as good as the 3800X but the price difference in Switzerland is 25$ only. I had initially the Noctua NH-D15 Chromax cooler on my list but was told that the stock cooler on the CPU is good enough, what do you think?

 

Any feedback about the MB? I'm looking at different Gigabyte X570 now, Aorus Ultra, Master or the ASUS Rog Strix X570-F Gaming.

I made some adjustments, just to give you more input:

 

All prices from digitech.ch


CPU: AMD Ryzen 3800X - 362 CHF

Motherboard: Asus Prime X570-P - 189 CHF

Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB 2x 16GB 3200MHz CAS 16 - 176 CHF

Storage: WD Blue m.2 NVMe 1TB - 105 CHF

Video Card: Gigabyte RTX 2080 Super - 699 CHF

Case: Corsair iCUE 220T Airflow - 105 CHF
PSU: Corsair RMx 650 - 99.50 CHF

 

Total: 1735.50 CHF

 

I would usually suggest to stick with the 3700X, but in your case the price difference is so miniscule, might as well go with the 3800X. Saved some money overall and went with a 3x fan 2080 Super instead of your 2070 Super.
