Is this build worth the price tag?

 Share

Budget (including currency): No budget as of this moment

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: VALORANT, Streaming and Editing. 

Other details just looking to see if this configuration is a fair price for it being through NZXT

No. You could actually get a better performing system while buying scalped parts. They're up-charging you $10 on the CPU, the case is terrible for the price, you're getting way too expensive of a motherboard for this tier of system, the memory is overpriced, the AIO is very overpriced, that PSU is known for blowing up, and no one actually pays $120 for a Windows key.

This system would perform better, have higher quality parts, and cost much less. A GPU isn't included, but you can get a scalped card on eBay. You've got ~$1000 to get a GPU, so either a MSRP 3080 10G if you can get one, brand new RX 6700XT from an AIB, or a scalped 3060 Ti or, if you get lucky, maybe even a 3070. If you don't want to build it yourself, drop $50-100 off the price to give to a local kid to build it for you. Add $10-20 to get a Windows key off eBay/some other key reseller and you're golden.

Im really trying to sugarcoat it /s but id still describe it as a complete flaming pile of trash, esp with that psu

 

Sad excuse of a gpu for this budget, atleast 3060ti or 6600xt, pref 6700, 3070, or better. The cpu is ok though id reccomend a 5800x or 12600k for futureproofing reasons

 

Case is a pc bake oven, expect your gpu and cpu to constantly overheat to sht with the sidepanel on, get a better case prefferably one with mesh or perforated front that allows for better airflow

 

Board is stupidly overpriced and uneccesary, get a b550 instead like the a pro, tomahawk, steel legend, or extreme4. Only reason to get x570 is if you wanna use the chipset pcie 4.0 lanes for things like more than 1 gen4 ssd, dual gpu, etc.

 

Tiny rams for 120$, get some cheaper rams like ballistix if you intend to oc cause theyll do 4500+ cl18 but for a more balanced speed 4000 cl16, if you dont intend to oc then dont even bother and get the cheapest rams possible

 

Decent ssd (sn570) but dramless so not good for sustained r/w, get a drive with dram like crucial p5, silicon power a80, etc.  Sata ssd or whatever that adata thingy is can just be thrown away as sata ssds are pointless unless you want good value 4tb or 8tb ssds

 

Aio is completely uneccesary and terrible for its price considering arctic liquid freezer will annihilate it performance and noise wise. Get a cheap 4 heatpipe tower cooler instead

 

That psu is a blow up hazard, why tf is it even an option ffs. Literally anything other than sketchy chinese psus are better than  that blow up hazard, gamers nexus has made a vid on these psus blowing up if you dont belive me

 

Windows 10 pro is like 20$ on cheapkeys sites like scdkeys, for that particular site theres a 30-40% disc code in the intro of tech yes city vids

haha. this about broke it down for me. thank you 🙂 Did some research of my own on the parts and most of it is terrible from what I'm reading. Gonna take the above comment and purchase the things it has. Thank you both.

One thing to mention is that the Scythe Fuma 2 might not come with the LGA 1700 bracket in the box and may need to be purchased separately. that's how it was for me about a month ago when I built an Alder Lake system. It's a great cooler, even for $70 after the cost of the mounting mechanism, I'd just look into seeing if you can get the mounting hardware either with the cooler or if they will mail it to you for free like Noctua/Arctic/CM/etc.
