NEW BUILD - Final Thoughts?

 Share

Living in The Netherlands and a budget of 1700€, I decided it's time for an upgrade. I can wait for RDNA3 GPU's and perhaps prices of older generation will drop even further, who knows...

 

Here is the link for the build: https://nl.pcpartpicker.com/list/V933jZ

 

My doubts are essentially GPU / Monitor.

Games: COD MW II, Overwatch 2, FIFA 23, F1 2022, (DIABLO IV & GTA VI when they come out).

 

Below are the cheapest versions of RTX 3070 / RTX 3080 & 6800 XT / 6900 XT:

  • INNO3D GeForce RTX 3070 TWIN X2 LHR - 599
  • ASUS TUF GAMING RX 6800 XT O16G GAMING - 669
  • Asus TUF Gaming RX 6900 XT OC 16G - 740
  • INNO3D GeForce RTX 3080 X3 LHR - 799

 

Below are the cheapest versions of 1440p monitors:

  • LG 27GN800-B 27",   2560 x 1440,   144 Hz,   1ms - 248
  • Asus TUF Gaming VG27BQ 27",   2560 x 1440,   165 Hz,  1ms - 279
  • MSI Optix G273QF 27",    2560 x 1440,    165 Hz,   1ms - 289
  • HP X27q 27",    2560 x 1440,    165 Hz,   1ms - 329

 

White build (already got the case).

Thankyou!🙂

Liquid cooler on a 5600X is really not needed, you could save money and prevent potential future headaches. 

 

Do not get the LG monitor, you want something that is height adjustable in that price range. Asus looks good.  

 

In terms of GPU I am currently in a similar boat, hoping RDNA3 is within my price range. But 6800XT is a good choice right now.

Location: Kaunas, Lithuania, Europe, Earth, Solar System, Local Interstellar Cloud, Local Bubble, Gould Belt, Orion Arm, Milky Way, Milky Way subgroup, Local Group, Virgo Supercluster, Laniakea, Pisces–Cetus Supercluster Complex, Observable universe, Universe.

Spoiler

12700, B660M Mortar DDR4, 32GB 3200C16 Viper Steel, 2TB SN570, EVGA Supernova G6 850W, be quiet! 500FX, EVGA 3070Ti FTW3 Ultra.

The 5600 and the X aren't gonna make a difference worth paying for.  It's the same chip and with a good cooler you can Set the frequency to the same frequency as the X.  Not to mention both chips are faster than any GPU needs them to be, especially at 1440p, so any small 2% difference in theoretical framerate would never even show up due to the GPU being the bottleneck. 

 

IDK what you I/O needs are but you can get a cheaper motherboard too and not notice a difference.  Motherboard aesthetics hardly matter because you can't really ever see it without looking really hard when the PC is finally assembled.  This one still has heatsinks where it needs them and has onboard wifi and bluetooth.  mATX in an ATX looks totally fine because with the GPU in place you can't really see the bottom of the motherboard anyway, and having less black PCB in your white case might actually look better.

 

The 980 SSD is also way overpriced for a DRAMless SSD.  You can get double the space going with a crucial P2 for only $50 more, or just get a 1tb P2 and pocket the $25. 

 

The liquid cooler is also kina expensive for a basic 240, a deepcool AK400 comes in white and would suit you aesthetic nicely, for $30 less while still providing more than enough cooling to OC the 5600 should you ever need to and being very quiet.

 

You'll also want more intake fans so you can have positive pressure, the case only comes with one fan for intake and one for exhaust, so adding 2 for intake will give you great airflow to both the CPU and GPU, and give you positive internal pressure.  The P12 has an excellent blade design that moves a ton of air and they are quiet, despite being cheap.

 

The GQ850 is only $5 more than the GQ750, i'd take the headroom for that.

 

This is also a better, newer 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".

With your input I managed to do this: https://nl.pcpartpicker.com/list/wsZrPX

 

  • Upgraded the monitor for an IPS Panel;
  • Changed Mboard;
  • Changed MotherBoard;
  • Changed SSD;
  • Changed CPU;
  • Changed Cooler.

- Cooler, it might be overkill, but the MasterLiquid ML240L V2 RGB would look perfect and smoother in the case for +30

- 5600X is +34

- Samsung 980 is +17

- Asus ROG STRIX B550-A is +20

 

 

So this makes 100€ diference overall. Let's say I'm ok with it. Is it good overall? for the next 5 years?

Yeah dude, at least that long.  It’s gonna faster than any game could need right now, and should still be able to play anything at good settings for quiet a while.
