New Build (First PC)

Budget (including currency): $1,500 US

Country: USA

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Maybe Streaming but mainly gaming.

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): 

My first pc, I have everything except for the pc tower so I was wondering what parts I should get that will run well and last me a while.

I also want to build my own gaming pc for the first time

You're really just gonna highjack someone's topic like that?

 

@KermyWormydo you have any specific features you need like wifi, or just best performance per dollar? Favorite color?

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed 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 mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

For budget of $1,500 you can get a high end pc gaming rig.

This is probably the best move, but it's worth asking what kind of monitor is going to be used.

 

@KermyWormy What kind of monitor do you have?  If it's just a regular office monitor, you could still get a very good tower and a real gaming monitor for $1500, but I WOULD NOT go with just a regular office monitor if this is your budget.  The main appeal of PC gaming is quick input, high framerate (refresh rate) and high resolution.    Makes everything far more immersive, and none of that is gonna happen without a nice monitor.

The sign is a subtle joke. The shop is called "Sneed's Feed & Seed", where feed and seed both end in the sound "-eed", thus rhyming with the name of the owner, Sneed. The sign says that the shop was "Formerly Chuck's", implying that the two words beginning with "F" and "S" would have ended with "-uck", rhyming with "Chuck". So, when Chuck owned the shop, it would have been called "Chuck's Feeduck and Seeduck".

For 1080p gaming, a RTX 3060 is plenty of gpu. I also went with 2TB of M.2 NVME SSD storage.

The Phantom Gaming 4 boards are generally crap. Better off just getting an MSI B660 board like the A-Pro for less.

There is just no reason to get it when the MSI B660 already has a better VRM for less money.

I/o is basically the same, though does the b660a offer unlocking power limits? iirc most z690 should have an option to just yeet power limits out the window, theres also ram ocing but pretty pointless unless you run somewhat extreme freq (4500+)

Yes you can unlock power limits on the B660/M-A Pro.
