My First Build

 Share

Hey, how ya doin? Good?... Me too!... Anyways, I'm completely new to this forum, and I would just like your thoughts and/or suggestions on a rig I'm looking to build. The only parts I'm still missing is the CPU cooler, some fans, and the monitor. The budget was like somewhere around $2,000 USD if that matters. For it's uses, I'm going to be playing every type of game possible, web browsing, maybe eventually try streaming, and some fiddling with word and stuff.

how about 3950X? i dunno about the mobo. i think 970 is kinda expensive with other competitor. Sabrent and Intel offer balance between quality and price. that doesnt mean 970 bad. it just f** expensive.

nah, the 970 evo offers good value but the 970 pro is overpriced af, I would suggest the corsair MP510 as a better and cheaper alternative though

the 3950x costs about 250$ more than the 9900k and is a bit worse in gaming, if what OP is doing is only gaming and streaming the 9900k is a  more than capable cpu

first of all. the 970 evo/ evo plus is terrible value right now. 

you could get cheaper ssd, cheaper motherboard and then you can affor 3950x. its like 1% worse in gaming but destroys 9900k in any other means. And for streaming and for the future 3950x is better.

for streaming if you don't use nvnec you are an idiot, i stream from time to time in 1080p max settings and have no cpu load and the performance drop is extremely low.

Then the 9900k overcklocks like a demon, at 5.1-5.2 you can get a amazing performace.

the NVENC is on gpu not in the cpu dummy. to use NVENC you hate to have nvidia gpu, the cpu doesnt matter in that point.

And yes intel cpu's overclock better and i9 9900k is like 1-3% better in gmaing. I dont care if i have 150fps or 145 fps. i care about streaming at highest settings while playing AAA games.

that's what I said, I have no cpu load because i use nvenc, he chose an RTX 2070 SUPER, so that's not a problem.

Then the  number say that the performance difference is a bit more that 1%, of you are an AMD fanboy go on but there are some things that just make more sense, I wouldn't tell anyone to get a 9400f insead on a 3600 at 190$ or a 10940x instead of a 3950x but in this specific case intel is better

idk, intel 10th gen will be op in all senses, over powered (TDP), over powered (5.3 GHZ) and extremely over priced.

Ahhh I had no idea you had a magic ball that could see the future.

Even though a lot of rumors are pointing to lower pricing...

Who cares about TDP?

I don't because I have an overpowered liquid cooler, but some people do.

Lower pricing, meh... LGA 1200 will be useless and I find stupid that intel decided to change socket, AGAIN for no reason, seems like it will be somewhat competitive with zen 2, but still, 14nm.

PSA: No, I didn't waste all that money on computers, (except the main one) my server cost $40, the intel NUC was my old PC (although then it had 8GB of ram, I gave the bigger stick of ram to a person who really needed it), my laptop is used and the second PC is really cheap.

I like tinkering with computers and have a personal hatred towards phones and everything they represent (I daily drive an iPhone 7, or a 6, depends on which one works that day)

Any air cooler over $100 will easily be able to handle the higher TDP, and any build of $2k will have a more than adequate cooling solution.

Intel always changes their socket every couple of years. It's not like AMD doesn't change theirs.

AMD's nm isn't the same as Intel's nm.

That is true, intel 14nm is more efficient and better than amd 14nm, and intel 14nm is on par with TSMC, but 7 nm is more efficient, it consumes less thus it runs cooler

Thanks so much for all of your feedback, it's very much appreciated; however, I think I'm going to stick with what I've got. I think the i9 will be more than powerful for whatever I end up doing. And for around $170 I think the ssd will be just fine as well. Anyways, sorry I couldn't respond earlier, and thanks again!
