Powerful Programmer build

 Share

Hi, hope everyone is well and safe.

I need help building a powerful and fast pc mainly for programming. Other uses will be surfing internet. I am not sure of the specs. This will be a personal pc build. I need help in choosing arts and I would need to know why also. I am learning to do this on my own. I am learning how to choose parts for different uses. I have no idea of budget yet. I am in NYC area. I want to build something I will be very proud of and plan on building more setups. Thx for any help.

Answer a few questions below to help me see what's good for you?

 

(You do realize programming can be pretty easy task to run, but you mentioned 'Powerful and fast'?)

 

Identifying the Rough budget: 

-Is $750  (for the pc) too much?

Is $1250 (for the pc) too much?

-  Is $2000  (for the pc) Too much?

-Is $4000 (for the pc) too much? 

- IS $6000 too much (For the Entire setup)

(I know, reptitive)

 

General questions:

- Are you looking for a setup or just a pc?

- Do you want to game at all?

- Do you want RGB? 

- Performance or asthetic (choose one, this is only if youre on a budget lower than ~$1200)? 

- Special requirments/requests?

(more questions coming later)

 

 

I am NOT a professional and a lot of the time what I'm saying is based on limited knowledge and experience. I'm going to be incorrect at times. 
My build:
CPU: 10700k Oc'd to 5.0 ghz                            GPU: RTX 3070 ventus 2x
Motherboard: Asus z490-v                                Cooler: Deepcool castle ex 120mm
Ram: Team tforce delta 32gb 3200mhz cl16     Case: Phanteks p418r (p360a ripoff) 
PSU: Apevia Prestige 800w

Notes:
Spoiler

To me the 10700k seems pretty underrated. It's a very solid cpu. at 5.0ghz it draws 175-185w under full load. the Asus z490-v is a sh*t teir motherboard, I wouldn't recommend it for anything past a 10600k for light oc's only. Tforce ram is pretty but cpu cooler clearance can be an issue on them, so beware. the RTX 3070 is obviously a great card, but the ventus 2x is just horrible. Don't buy it, not now, not ever. It's flimsy af, you can't increase the stock power limit, the cooler is worse than the one on the 3070FE. If it's a choice between this and nothing, choose nothing. The deepcool castle ex 120mm isn't really on sale outside of prebuilts, but it's a nice pretty cooler, gets my 10700k up to 96c after a prime95 cpu test for 15 minutes. The p418r is basically what it looks like. P360a, slap a few cyberpowerpc logos on it, and you're golden. The Apevia Prestige 800w is bad, but not terrible. Runs respectably quiet and isn't a bomb. More than a lot of PSU's in prebuilts can claim.

Programming can be a super light weight task. 

 

Compiling, on the other hand, can use some serious CPU power. Once you have a budget in mind, we can make a list, as long as you tell us the main workflow of your programming and what you currently use.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

I am looking to build just the pc. My max budget may be $1000. I am currently doing Python and C++, Java will probably come soon. Currently I am using a MacBook Air 11 inch 2013 model. The pc I want to build I wanna run Windows and Linux on it also.

This is a good programming computer with plenty of room for CPU overclocking and upgrades in the future:

RGB is optional, wouldn't be bad if I can include it. Multi monitor display from 2-4, I may set this up using a dock so I can switch between using my MacBook or the PC. I doubt I will be gaming on this but I would not mind. No top hi spec games for sure.

Components in this build were not specifically selected due to aesthetics, these components offer great price to performance. You could remove the GPU in the suggested PCPartsPicker list which would bring the cost down to $ 710.30, although you may still want it for GPU acceleration reasons.
