Updated Build Plan, advice please?

Budget (including currency): £750

Country: United Kingdom

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Rocket League, Racing games. Star wars games e.g fallen order, squadrons. Adobe Creative Applications

 

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): 

 

Peripherals will be upgraded later.

 

1080p75hz atm, upgrading next year.

 

Parts List:

 

Ryzen 5 3600 (Purchased)

Be Quiet Pure rock slim (Not sure about)

Phanteks P400A Digital

Aorus X470 Ultra Gaming

Nvidia GPU budget of around £300

Sharkoon SilentStorm Cool Zero 650W

Samsung 860 Evo 512gb

1tb WD Blue HDD

 

So, I don't know what motherboard to get. Some say that the one I chose is not great if I want a better CPU, I don't. So should I change it?

 

Also I don't know what GPU to get, it has to be Nvidia as I use Adobe premiere aswell as After Effects and they work much better on Cuda. Any suggestions? I'm open to buying used

 

So, I'm wondering, should I spend £305 on GPU and go with the cheap cooler or spend an extra say £15 and get something like a Pure Rock 2?

 

Any other suggestions are welcome too, but I would really appreciate answers to my questions.

 

Thanks guys

I can't speak on the motherboard for AMD. I've not messed with them. Why not use the stock cooler? I've heard good things about them.

CPU I9-9900k, Motherboard GIGABYTE Z390 I AORUS PRO WIFI, RAM CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB 3000mhz (2x16), GPU ASUS ROG STRIX GeForce RTX 2070 8GB, Case Geeek A60 Plus, Storage CORSAIR Force Series MP510 1920GB NVMe, CORSAIR FORCE Series MP510 960GB NVMe, PSU CORSAIR RM650x, Cooling Asus ROG RYUO 240, Displays LG 34UC98-W 34-Inch, 32 inch curved that I can't find the model number for right now, Keyboard Corsair K95, Mouse Corsair Nightblade, Sound AT2020+ USB Mic and Headphones

stock cooler is fine, board is fine for a 3600/3700x/5800x probably. card-wise, a used 1080ti would be a monster, for new cards a 2060 ko would be best regarding things that are actually in stock atm

I purchased the CPU used on eBay. It didn't not come with stock Cooler. Also, I want it to be quiet and I imagine that the stock is quite loud.

 

I'm tempted by a 1080ti but I worry about it not having the nvenc encoder aswell as it being 4yr.

 

Will game performance be bad if I'm recording while playing?

in that case a 20-30 dollar tower cooler would be fine, the 3600 is very low power and doesnt need anything fancy. something like a hyper 212, gammaxx 300/400, etc.

 

all nvidia cards since kepler (i think) have some type of NVENC encoder. though the most recent turing NVENC is the most efficient, pascal's isnt bad either and you can still find used 1080tis that are about 2-2.5 years old with warranty left over. a 2060 would be fine though; good for 1080p, good for video editing, latest NVENC, all that. using the NVENC encoder has a negligible effect on gpu performance which is why its so useful for streamers

The system that you have picked out already appears to be really good. I would recommend a decent air cooler of anything with a 120mm or 140mm fan if you can fit it in the P400A since you plan on doing video editing to keep temperatures down.

So obviously the 1080ti is better in game performance.

 

Do you really think I could get one for £300?

 

If so I think I may just go with that.

 

Oh I should have mentioned before, I will not buy the rest of the parts till November 27th as it's black Friday then and there should be done deals.

Thanks, yeh hopefully prices drop so that I can afford a better cooler.

in the us i can get one for 350 bucks or less shipped to my house, so i'd assume that you can find a local deal on one at least.
