New gaming PC order tomorrow. Any suggestions?

1 minute ago, K3ther said:

Before I order the parts I would like to get an educated opinion about this build for mixed use: Gaming and all the Adobe environment + Web development.

 

I am flexible with the budget but I defo don't want to spend more than £2.2k/$2800 at max.

 

Planned GPU: https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2070-super/

Nice build but for web development I suggest bumping ram to 32gb

Don't need an 850w power supply, the ssd is overpriced and you won't be needing an X570 board.

 

Can get MUCH more for your budget

But for 3rd gen Ryzen don’t you need an x570 board or another am4 board with a bios update or else it won’t boot?

There are B450 boards which are updated out of the box, such as MSI's MAX boards

No, there are plenty of B450 boards for example that are Ryzen 3000 ready out of the box

Yeah, I agree on finding cheaper components (not cheapest components).  

 

You can find a cheaper PSU of equal reliability and capability.  Cheaper NVMe drive (a regular 970 if you want Samsung).  Something like a ASUS Tuf X570 if you want X570.  And if you check eBay you may find someone that has a bunch of Corsair SL fans they're selling new and freshly pulled from AIOs.  Those may still pop up, but they may not now the mining craze is over.  

 

Edit:

NVM those are 140mm fans.  I was speaking about 120mm.

Honestly, kinda poor budget utilization. You can get a lot more for your money without sacrificing any reliability or quality. A big overspend on a lot of the parts chosen.

Even this is overkill in many areas, but you are getting a whole lot more for your money.

Thank you all.

 

You just suggested a more powerful CPU. Can I use the stock fan?

 

plus

 

I don't have the money for the 2080 super. That's why I linked this: https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/graphics-cards/rtx-2070-super/ - is it a good idea to order it from here? 

 

---

 

This is the build according to my preference and based on feedback. I don't want to change the noctura/case/psu combo - I just choose a less powerful PSU from the same brand.

I'd still spend less on the case and get one with better airflow and go for a 2080S at the very least, but that is just my opinion. Otherwise it looks good. The Crosshair VIII Hero should only be bought if it is not affecting your GPU purchase decision. If you are getting a 2070S because you are spending more on your case and motherboard then it makes absolutely no sense.

I still don’t see the point in the a lot of these parts. Motherboard is still wildly overpriced, and hindering you from getting a better GPU

I thought that.  It's just the 510 is very closed off in the front and then only has a 120 vent in the back and one 120 in the top. The 710 has "more" air flow, but is still very restricted.

As others have said your initial build was too expensive for the performance you'd get out of it.

For under £2.2k you can get basically everything in your build (3950X, 32GB 3600/CL16 Memory, X570 Board, PCIe 4.0 SSD, 2080 Super, fully modular PSU). To give you the best recommendation, I think that it'd be helpful to know what's important to you. How much gaming/productiviy are you doing? What kind of games (competitive e-sports titles, graphically demanding AAA titles or others?)? How intensive is your prodictivity workload? Do you want synced RGB over all components?
