other recommendations: I'd suggest the b350 over the b250.

you also won't ever need 32gb just for gaming. Going for 16gb will be fine.

also think you should add an SSD for your operating system.

 

Decent spec gaming machine - especially with the 1070ti

Especially because the B250 isn't an AMD board

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Thanks!!

i guess 32gb is too much ?, and an ssd would be nice but i feel like theyre really expensive, but it would help with load times

getting an ssd and 16gb of ram will be cheaper than no ssd & 32gb of ram

It's not just load times, it's general usability. Once you use a system running off an SSD you'll never go back. Worth the price premium.

Cheap is very selective. What's your max you want to spend. Once you give yourself a budget, you work within that number.

The current problem with Ryzen is that, Some AMD B350 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Pinnacle Ridge CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions. 

 

So you can really screw yourself here if you don't get lucky / don't wanna deal with the headache. I don't like AMD..

 

2,000? In that case....

A H100i with a locked cpu ? Huge waste of money right there. Same goes for the Z370 chipset. Not needed for a non 'K' cpu.

Winter is Coming.

What do you need for that $2000 ? Just the tower ? If so what monitor are you going to be using ?

Depends if you go Intel or AMD. At the minute Intel is way overpriced (At least here in UK) so Ryzen is currently better value for money. Then you need to decide if you want to overclock the cpu or not (Or have the option to).

If you want something cheapish then the MSI B450 Tomahawk or Gigabyte B450 Aorus are ok. 

 

Is a monitor part of the budget ?
