Any Areas I Could Save a Little on this Build?

 Share

Hey guys,

 

Im planning a new 1080ti gaming (and a little content creation) build. I feel like I may be overspending a little on my build however, particularly on storage. Am I looking over or overpaying on any areas?

Thank you for the help!

What are you using it for?
If you only do "a little" content creation, there's no need for 32GB of RAM.

Do you really need NVMe? SATA is cheaper and still fast.

You've spent $100 on fans.

Switch to a R7 1700, get a EVGA SuperNOVA 550 G2/G3 and cut down on the RGB.

Be nice to each other boys and girls. And don't cheap out on a power supply.

Primarily gaming at 1440p144hz

but I also render videos in 1440p and photo edit in Lightroom

I picked NVMe after seeing videos regarding its performance. However, if it's not necessary for better load times I may go to SATA

I definitely want RGB fans (Overall an RGB build) and I picked those due to the Hue+ ecosystem. I might not need that many fans however.

Personally, I'm looking for fastest single core performance. I don't plan on streaming or rendering large files so I picked the 7700k

Ideally I'd like it so that the power supply fan doesn't run. Will 550 allow this?

RGB is kinda the theme. While I won't be spectrum cycling all day, I like the customizability!

Well, you could save the extra $5.00 by not getting the AS5 thermal paste, since the NZXT X62 already comes with paste.

Plus, AS5 isn't the best option nowadays -- better of getting a tube of MX-4, etc.

 

The particular G.Skill TridentZ RGB kit is the more expensive one; there are other TridentZ RGB, and Corsair RGB kits for cheaper.

The performance difference would be quite minor, if any.

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/gGFXsY/gskill-trident-z-rgb-16gb-2-x-8gb-ddr4-3000-memory-f4-3000c16q-32gtzr

 

You've got a Samsung 960 EVO M.2; M.2 drives of that tier are going to be in that area for price.

 

Dont' get the EVGA NEX power supplies -- they are not as good at the G2 / G3 versions.

As suggested, for a single GPU system, a 550W will plenty.

EVGA G3 550W for $60 -- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/sMM323/evga-supernova-g3-550w-80-gold-certified-fully-modular-atx-power-supply-220-g3-0550

EVGA G2 650W for $89 -- https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9q4NnQ/evga-power-supply-220g20650y1

 

Make sure the EVGA PowerLink is COMPATIBLE with your ASUS GTX 1080 Ti. 

IMO, this is completely unnecessary if are getting custom sleeve cables, or have black flat cables (which is what the EVGA PSU's have).

 

 

EDIT:

The NXZT S340 doesn't have enough space for a push-pull fan configuration for your radiator, with the ASUS GTX 1080 Ti.

If you put your radiator fans at front of the radiator, you won't be able to see the RGB LED's anyways.

(Used my own S340 elite and X61 as reference)

I'd drop the RAM down to 16GB, get an MX300 1.1TB SSD and a 2TB Seagate Barracuda.

You save $26 on the storage, and over $100 on the RAM.

What sort of content creation are you doing? Usually, multithreaded performance is a better choice over single threaded performance.

 

Then I'd up it to 650W. The reason I changed the power supply is because the EVGA NEX series aren't a good pick.

 

You've gone for a RGB theme but that's cutting into your budget. I'd cut down on the RAM and storage.

7700k is a horrible choice. As is spending over $300 on RAM for "a little content creation". PSU is absolute trash. Spending $100 on fans is laughable, an absolute waste of money.

Just noticed this has 460X, get 570X or NZXT S340 Elite

No reason to get a 570x over the 460x. S340 is a trash case compared to similarly priced alternatives.

While I have considered Ryzen, I'm actually considering sticking with my current 4770k in this build. It's free and allows me to wait for Coffee Lake.

I went with 32GB because I wasn't sure if 16GB is enough I currently have 16GB in my PC and didn't want to see a bottleneck on my 1080ti.

As for the PSU I went with the first one PCPartPicker recommended over 550 watts. What makes it so bad? I'll definitely change if it is bad but I'm not sure how to judge the quality of it.

I don't know how many fans I'd need so when I actually purchase, I'd cut down the number of fans.

I've seen the 460X. It's very cramped.

It's bigger than the S340 that you recommended.

But the S340 is cheaper so I'm fine with it, would recommend the P400S over the 460X though

The S340 Elite is around the same price as the Rosewill Culinan, which is the 460x without the Corsair branding. The 460x is not cramped at all for a single GPU rig. Even a dual GPU system would be fine. In fact, the NZXT H440 is the same size as the 460x, H440 is just like 7cm taller. My H440 is more than big enough for my dual GPU set-up and a custom loop if I wanted.
