Need tips for build

Budget (including currency): 3500 US

Country: US

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: I wanna stream FPS and RPG games

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): 

I already bought the case because it was the original reason i wanted to start building a pc.

Seems like you should be able to fit a better GPU into a $3500 budget system.

 

Power supply is excessive.

 

You could probably use a board that costs hundreds less and not notice a difference. 

 

128GB of RAM doesn't seem necessary for gaming and streaming, you're not doing workstation stuff. 

Corps aren't your friends. "Bottleneck calculators" are BS. Only suckers buy based on brand. It's your PC, do what makes you happy.  If your build meets your needs, you don't need anyone else to "rate" it for you. And talking about being part of a "master race" is cringe. Watch this space for further truths people need to hear.

Screen grabs are difficult, especially on mobile devices. It also doesn't provide enough detail. Post the hyperlink found at the top of the build list or use the BB button and post a BB formatted list.

 

From the motherboard memory support page (bold added by me):

"Ensure that all memory modules are from the same validated memory kit. Do not mix DIMMs from different memory kits—even if they are the same brand and model (e.g., two DIMMs each from two different memory kits). Mixing and matching DIMMs can result in a failure to boot and compatibility issues. In particular, the stability of a system with mixed DIMMs cannot be guaranteed when XMP (Intel)/D.O.C.P (AMD)/EXPO (AMD)/AEMP/AEMPII is enabled. For example, enabling XMP (Intel)/D.O.C.P (AMD)/EXPO (AMD)/AEMP/AEMPII to speeds above DDR5 4800MHz or above DDR4 3200MHz could result in an unstable system."

 

The PSU is beyond overkill. An 850W ATX 3.0 compliant model is sufficient for most current GPU. Certainly more than enough for an RTX 4070 Super.

 

80+ ratings certify electrical efficiency. Not quality.

i think ill switch it to a 4080 super

 

should i change it to 850?

 

what would you recommend for another board?

 

should i just do 64 or 32?

Consider a memory kit with EXPO profiles instead of XMP. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pqcG3C/gskill-trident-z5-neo-rgb-64-gb-2-x-32-gb-ddr5-6000-cl32-memory-f5-6000j3238g32gx2-tz5nr

 

I'd suggest an 850W or 1000W ATX 3.0 PSU with native support for the 12VHPWR connector.

What is your resolution ... 1080P, 1440P, etc ... ?

There is a lot of room for improvements. You can get a 4080S with this budget and you don't need 128gb of DD5 unless you want to do professional video editing, but then you'll need to change that CPU to a 13th/14th gen instead. because not only the X3D chips suck for production work, but also good luck getting 128gb and 4 sticks of RAM working with this processor.

 

I would opt for 32gb of CL30, 13600/13700K/13900K( if you're going to be doing any video editing and productivity, otherwise you can go with the X3D chip), And an Arctic LFII instead of the current AIO. The 990 Pro or the SN850x Black instead of the 980 pro. And your Motherboard pick is needlessly expensive. This would be a 4K gaming PC, but still pretty great for lower resolutions.
