New pc for a friend

 Share

Budget (including currency): 1000 euros 

Country: Finland

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming (apex, modern warfare, xbox game pass games)

Other details 

existing parts lists: some crappy prebuilt, will use old storages

whether any peripherals are needed: he has 1080p 144hz monitor and all the other peripherals already

 

So i am building a PC for my friend. He has crappy prebuilt PC with 1050 ti which is failing. Hes budget is around 1000 euros. He already has a SSD for system and HDD for games. He will buy a SSD for games later.

I thought something like this: 

Yes he wants that case.

Now i know that this PC will perform pretty well since i have almost identical PC. But can i improve anything?

Tier lists for building a PC.

 

Motherboard tier list. Tier A for overclocking 5950x. Tier B for overclocking 5900x, Tier C for overclocking 5800X. Tier D for overclocking 5600X. Tier F for 4/6 core Cpus at stock. Tier E avoid.

(Also case airflow matter or if you are using Downcraft air cooler)

Spoiler

 

Gpu tier list. Rtx 3000 and RX 6000 not included since not so many reviews. Tier S for Water cooling. Tier A and B for overcloking. Tier C stock and Tier D avoid.

( You can overclock Tier C just fine, but it can get very loud, that is why it is not recommended for overclocking, same with tier D)

Spoiler

 

Psu tier List. Tier A for Rtx 3000, Vega and RX 6000. Tier B For anything else. Tier C cheap/IGPU. Tier D and E avoid.

(RTX 3000/ RX 6000 Might run just fine with higher wattage tier B unit, Rtx 3070 runs fine with tier B units)

Spoiler

 

Cpu cooler tier list. Tier 1&2 for power hungry Cpus with Overclock. Tier 3&4 for overclocking Ryzen 3,5,7 or lower power Intel Cpus. Tier 5 for overclocking low end Cpus or 4/6 core Ryzen. Tier 6&7 for stock. Tier 8&9 Ryzen stock cooler performance. Do not waste your money!

Spoiler

 

Storage tier List. Tier A for Moving files/  OS. Tier B for OS/Games. Tier C for games. Tier D budget Pcs. Tier E if on sale not the worst but not good.

(With a grain of salt, I use tier C for OS myself)

Spoiler

 

Case Tier List. Work In Progress. Most Phanteks airflow series cases already done!

Ask me anything :)

Something like that sounds great.

You might be able to wait a bit for AMD CPU prices to drop due to Intel's 10th gen launch, but really that's a pretty optimized build already.

You don't need a big PSU

 

Desktop:

Delidded Core i7 4770K - GTX 1070 ROG Strix - 16GB DDR3 - Lots of RGB lights I never change

Laptop:

HP Spectre X360 - i7 8560U - MX150 - 512GB SSD - 16GB DDR4 - I lost my pen so I convince myself I don't need it

My suggestion would be to get a better power supply, something like a straight power 11 550 or 600 watt because of higher efficiency rating and the 5 year warranty. Unless your friend is overclocking, you can save some euros by going with 3200 mhz memory instead. Your board will not run 3600 out of the box without some oc tweaking. If he or she is only gaming at the moment, a Ryzen 3 3300X would save you some money and perform nearly as well (in gaming that is).
