SOS - Please help me with my build!

dbBrant

Budget (including currency): $1864.16-$1871.06

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: Gaming, Recording, Editing, Etc. (eventually streaming)

So, I live in the United States, and need to get my system list together entirely. For context, I used a Desktop my dad has built that was used by my mom, and we never upgraded it. It is still in it's Nearly original state. Currently uses DDR3. He then got a 2010 Mac mini for me for Christmas and I've been using that since (what I am posting this on rn), and then he was like, "Get a set of parts together," to me and that as he gets the funds, he'll get them one at a time.

But all I've gotten was the case because it's been stuck in place since like 1-2 years. I finally got around to it and am stuck on the Storage. It currently costs around $1864.16-$1871.06 and will be used for Gaming, Recording, Editing and maybe Streaming like Twitch eventually. You want the Specs to help out, go wild but the SSDs in it are not gonna be final, since one is too expensive, and the other may not be the best for gaming, dunno. And if you wanna help any further in this matter, I'd also like some help with finding out if all the parts are compatible with each other.

I also have the Magic Mouse there for a reason and that's personal reasons 🙂 Don't make it too expensive tho. Anyway, here is the list.

little mis matched.

 

1000 watt psu when you need 400?

 

Why use a CPU with integrated graphics if you are going to use a graphics card?

 

spend around $100 on PSU

You don't need a fancy liquid cooler for that CPU. Any air cooler will be fine, even the one it comes with.

 

If you're using dedicated graphics, get the regular 5600, not the 5600G. The 5600G doesn't support PCIe Gen 4, so pairing Gen4 storage with it is a waste of money.

 

You're buying way too much power supply. You can save money by getting a smaller one; even a 650 watt power supply is overkill for that machine.

 

 

I sold my soul for ProSupport.

Went with Intel for this build, as for the money it makes the most sense. If you are using it for productivity tasks as you say, this will be much better than the 5600G you chose. It has 12 Cores and 20 threads. Perfect for streaming or editing and fast P-Cores for Gaming.

 

Provided an acceptable cooler that should be just enough for the 12700KF. 

 

Went with a modern Z790 motherboard that's packed with features. Has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. 

 

Having two separate NVMe drives is not really necessary. One NVMe that's 2TB will be fine. This is one of the best drives for the money right now.

 

Absolutely no reason why a 3060 is in an $1800 build, easily slotted in a 4070 Ti which is a beast for 1080p, 1440p, and even 4K gaming.

 

Wasn't clear in your OP if you already have the Cooler Master HAF XB EVO, if you do then the case choice doesn't matter. If you don't have it already and haven't purchased it yet, I think this is a better case with a 5.25" bay for your DVD drive.

 

A 1000W PSU is also not needed for this build, and especially not your previous build. This is a Tier A unit and provides plenty of power for all your components.

 

Not sure what the HDMI Switch is for, but left it alone. However, while I understand the Magic Mouse is preferential, it's not really designed to be used on Windows. I recommend getting a proper gaming mouse instead (might as well get a nice Mechanical Keyboard while you're at it too).

 

Also, I would opt for Windows 11 Pro with this build because it works better with 12th Gen Intel. You don't need a retail key, as you can get a $15-20 OEM key from a key reseller. If you need a link to one of those let me know. All you would have to do is create a bootable USB drive on another computer (really easy to do).

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.
