First Desktop Build AMD + nVidia

 Share

Hi team,

 

I'm currently running a laptop Lenovo Y50 purchased 6 years ago and it has served me well for mobile gaming for a while. Now I've settled and looking to build a Desktop PC.

 

It will be used for moderate gaming, mainly FPS & MMO Gaming and occasionally some Photoshop. I haven't built a desktop in more than 10 years and i'm looking for build adjustments and suggestions for Motherboard.

 

My current wish-list is:

  • AMD Ryzen 5 3600X (Or Non-X)
  • Corsair CX650M Plus Bronze
  • Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3200Mhz
  • Fractal Design Meshify C Case
  • Samsung 970 EVO Plus 512GB NVME + 1TB SSD 960GB Evo (From Laptop)
  • GTX ROG STRIX 2060 RTX SUPER
  • Motherboard (??)

Any adjustments to the build are welcome.

 

My budget for the rig only is around 1300 euro as I need to spend ~300 euro more with tax on Monitor.

 

Thanks in advance!

3600, no point in the x, literally

get G. SKill RIPJAWS 2x8gb 3600mhz ram, and if you cant do that at least use 3600mhz ram

Get the Phateks p300a (or p400a digital if you want rgb fans), and add another case fan as exhaust. 

Get a Sabrent rocket 500gb ssd, Samsung is overpriced. 

Get a rx 5700xt red devil or sapphire nitro+ if you can, otherwise just dont get the blower. Its about the same price as the 2060S with performance that rivals the 2070S

For the motherboard get the MSI b450 tomahawk max

 

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.

Thank you for the fast and great suggestions.

 

I will adjust my build accordingly, one last thing about AMD 5700, I heard it has driver issued still. Any feedback if that's fixed?
