Gaming Build Plan

 Share

Budget (including currency): $700 US dollars

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Games Minecraft,  And some others

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

 

Here is what I have so far on the System Builder.

No. Just no. I'm sorry but I'm tired right now and I don't have a $700 build on hand so I won't give you one but I can say with confidence that you should not buy a single part on that list. a higher-end motherboard for a ryzen 3? a higher-capacity fully modular psu for that? a 970 evo is pretty bad, especially for the price. You can get a much more powerful build if you optimize the parts better.

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.

You could go with a non wifi mobo and a 500w psu, is minecraft only planned game to be played? You also could get away with another ssd

Reminder⚠️

I'm just speaking from experience so what I say may not work 100%

Please try searching up the answer before you post here but I am always glad to help

I would recommend something like this as a base instead.

 

 

It's a little over your budget, but you could swap the SSD for an HDD, etc. Maybe find a cheaper PSU.

Thank you for your assistance.  I have not been in the pc parts building since the Athlon Slot A to Socket transition.

Thanks for the parts list.  I am looking up all the items and checking Bios updates for compatibility.

You could, but that would put you over budget and have less storage. His option is nice because it gives you a boot drive for your OS and a couple games, then HDD for mass storage. If you're ok with spending extra money and are cool with only 1TB of storage then send it.
