Pcpartpicker check, someone help

I am new to computers, I ordered a laptop from IBuyPower back in 2013 and am looking to do my first PC build. I have done quite a bit of research on my own but am still very confused and don't know whats the best bang for my buck. I am mainly concerned on my choice of cpu/mobo and gpu. I play league and battlegrounds and watch youtube and every once in awhile a few other games that aren't that tasking. Any advice would be appreciated.

This is the list I have so far.

Are you planning to do some overclocking as well?

no reason to get 7700k and z270 over AMD r5 right now unless you're going for insane fps in competitive games, worth it to save the money on an r5 1600 and b350 board which you can still hit 4ghz with and get a 1080 with the money saved

Putting together what I would currently build for about that same price

Welcome to the forum!

 

For your list:

  • You have a last gen CPU, it's not much more to get a current one.
  • You have an H series motherboard, which doesn't allow for overclocking. Either go with a Z270/Z170 board, or don't get the K series CPU.
  • I'm not sure how good that PSU is, might want to replace it with something else. Google "updated PSU tier list" for a better understanding.
  • If you ever plan on changing motherboards or moving to another system, don't get the OEM version of Windows.
  • Only get the fans if you're going for aesthetics, they're not really needed for cooling.

As @Willis1414 suggested, AMD might be a better option. What's your usage?

 

Also, please check sub forums in the future. This is in the wrong one. Should be in New Builds and Planning.

Ryzen 1600 or 1600x would be amazing value and same performance for what you are doing, and a great pair with a gtx 1070.

 

buy cheap windows 10 key from kinguin.com

What I would do.

 

You could even drop the cooler as the am4 stock coolers are pretty good and you should be able to hit 3.8-4.0ghz on it.

 

Windows 10 can be bought for cheaper off of kinguin.com as @CostcoSamples said

 

The fans are nice, but I'd personally recommend some from the likes of Noctua, or be-quiet if you don't like Noctua's color schemes. would be quieter and perform better

 

I've used the PSU before and only had good experiences with them!

@zacmaxbrown Overclocking is extremely easy nowadays and is a nice way to get free performance out of parts, can do it in a matter of minutes if you just want a conservative overclock, as always, google/YouTube are your friends here.

I dont plan on overclocking because I have no clue what I am doing. I will look into the PSU tier list for sure though. Thanks for the welcome and advice I will make sure to ask my questions in the more relevant forum next time. I appreciate it.

So then sure, lets over clock. I am pretty much just trying o figure out if I am spending too much on the wrong things for what I plan on doing. I just want to build my own PC and play at decent FPS and decent graphics settings for some games.

If you're not overclocking you'll only see a slight boost in performance over the cheaper 7700.

did you look over the pcpartpicker list I put together? it replaces the cpu and motherbord for an r5 1600 and b350 strix which are both very high quality and performance. that costs less than the 7700k alone and performs to within a few percent of it. I also upgraded the graphics card from a 1070 to a 1080 which should be plenty for 1440p 144hz or even high settings, not maxed in all games, 4k 60fps

I will look into the Ryzen chips for sure. Thanks man. The windows key I will be sure to do as well. Do you think that the gtx 1070 would be a better choice for the price than the rx 580?

@zacmaxbrown 1070 is a large upgrade over the 580 in most cases, also the 580 is hard to come by due to the boom in cryptocurrencies happening right now.

Yeah I've looked into it but thats another 400 dollars added onto it when I am pretty much here to look into if I am spending too much lol

Okay perfect I will look into the different CPU then for sure. I'll do some looking around for a good 1070 as well.

The original build doesnt include the price of the 1070 you added, as it is currently unavliable, so its almost the exact same price
