looking for help to optimize my new pc build

Budget (including currency): about 3000 euro's (excluded monitor)

Country: The Netherlands

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: programming, 3D rendering and big boi gaming

Other details 4K, at least 144HZ

List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/VWKhKp

Hey everybody,

 

I'm looking to build a new PC!

I made a list of components that seemed good but I was wondering if there are better parts for this build and if there would be a bottleneck.

Also i'm not sure about the cooling if this will suffice.

thx in advance.

Nice. I wonder at using a 970 Evo and 980 Pro. Given the price difference I would suggest two 980 Pro.

Ok

To me DDR5 is currently an useless cash sink.. 

And I think there's a lot of room for improvements 

 

- DDR4 board first, cheaper and much cheaper RAM

- Better cheaper cooler (no idea why the U12-A is more expensive than the D-15..)

- Unless you have a specific need, a 1TB boot/software PCie4 drive is enough

- Your case was a bit midrangish for such a build, I suggest a more premium one

- With the saved cash, you can then upgrade to a 3080ti (which is the best, once the useless overpriced 3090 is put aside 🙂 )

- Now you need a bit more power, so a 1000W PSU

 

Eventually it ends up cheaper (with a Netherlands located list, yours was US..)

Recommend these changes... The H7 Flow has better airflow, and allows for more case fans, etc. etc. I added the 3 140mm fans for the front of the case, which should be mounted as intake fans. You can move the pre-installed front fan to the top-back of the case. 🙂

I think this will perform as well as most other posts here and is cheaper. 6900XT trades blows with the 3080ti and has far better availability and price:

i don't know much about GPU's, but wasn't the 3080ti better for 4k? Also would the 3080ti be more future-proof?

No more than early 2400MHz DDR4 is present proof... sure at one moment you'll have to upgrade, but DDR5 is still not that better than DDR4, and super pricey

3080Ti is a tad faster, maybe 5-10% for 20% more money, so not a great deal imo, and the difference isn't large enough to make the Ti lasts for really longer, I mean both would be obsolete together in 3-4 generations (like a 780 is currently, still works but not great)

Yes, the 3080ti will get you 5fps more at best and -10fps at worst when you spend an additional 250euro. I don't think it's worth it one bit. I was thinking of the 3080ti myself until I saw how much cheaper the 6900XT is when you basically get the same FPS.

No such things as future-proof hardware. All hardware is gonna be outdated no matter the marketing budget nor what popular youtubers use to make their computers. No way of telling how well a generation is gonna perform in the long term, but we for sure now can know that their relevancy will be greatly expanded thanks to upscaling technology like DLSS and FSR.

Personally I now have my first ever Radeon card and I'm far more impressed with it than when I was with Nvidia, especially comparing ReLive to Shadowplay.

Some software has noticeably better performance with DDR5. Check the benchmarks for your workflows.

So everyone has suggested the i7 instead of the new gen i9 is there a particular reason for this?

I don't think that is an accurate assesment. One posts liked the OP build. One post suggested a different i9-12900K build. One build with an i7-12700K and another with an i7-12700 were also suggested. 

 

There is little performance difference between the i7 and i9. You will need to check benchmarks for your rendering software to decide if the i9 makes more sense.

Ah yes It seems i drew the wrong conclusion thanks anyway, everyone here has been really helpful in the decision making process so far. Thank you so much 🙂

Not a fan of the case. Airflow is not as good as a mesh front model.

 

Outer fan of NH-D15 overhangs memory area. Little point in using RGB memory modules. The outer fan may have to be raised to clear memory.

 

Rather than the NH-D15, you might consider an AIO. A z63 or z73 would complement the fan lighting, provide better CPU cooling, and expose the memory lighting.

Will be plenty powerful for a good few years.  Guessing you brought the NZXT Fans to match the AIO Cooler you picked.

I would recommend this. I only went with DDR5 as it was a similar price to 3600 mhz c16 ddr4, and the motherboard was not too much more than a ddr4 one. Obviously in the future, you could upgrade to faster DDR5 later down the line when it is released (the mobo supports up to 6400mhz)

I wanted to build it in the NZXT H7 elite. But after hearing it has 0 airflow I decided to go for a different case.

Not a fan of the plastic front piece on the case.

I'm not sure ether, but i think the H7 flow would cover the rgb to much.
