Budget (including currency): 1.5K CAD

Country: Canada

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Graphic designing, recording while playing slightly demanding games

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): so I’m building a new pc for my friend and it’s my first time building one and actually picking the parts, so I was wondering if these parts will be fine.(they’re going to be as screenshots) I told him everything seems fine but I just asked what the rpm on the hard drive is just in case he wants to load his games slightly faster. He’s ordering the pc in December, around the middle of it. He currently is spending 1.5K on this pc. (that’s the total for all the parts and I’ll update once I get more info) he’s probably going to be playing 1080p maybe 1440 since he is going to use a 1660 ti. That’s all if you guys have any questions just reply, I’ll be checking in every now and then throughout the day

Don't make a parts list now, make a parts list then, because there will be new CPUs on the market and new graphics cards.

 

Also if you ditch some RGB you can get much more performance:

you could still put that 5 pack of fans in this case, but with this setup you get more storage and a lot more graphics horsepower.

A 1660 TI isn't all that good for 1440p gaming, you could get away with medium settings in a lot of games but not with a very high framerate. The RX 5700 in this list is great, and by December, there might even be an RX 6700 which would be even better.

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.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed 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 moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

To reply to the others, wait for the new cpus probably get the 5600x for same price, the gpu for 1440p you probably won’t get to many FPS, seeing that he probably has a high refresh rate monitor, the mobo is a bit overkill, many mobos for much less have more features, only if you want that good asus support than that’s where I would go. Save a little on the mobo to get a better gpu.

Alright thank you so much, he’s seen your post and the part your recommended and he’ll be adjusting his list when the new processors and gpu’s come out
