New Build Help

RyanCyan
 Share

I'm about to start ordering parts this week, but I just want some input from here.

 

My buddy is selling me his i5, cooler, and a nice case for $115, so all in all, I'll really be spending $520

 

Please let me know if i should make any changes or get different parts for the build.

Also, what is some good thermal paste I should buy? I've never dealt with thermal paste, so I'd appreciate some recommendations on it :)

 

Thanks

improvements based on what you can get new.

 

swap SSD and PSU out to save and invest the extra into the rx 580. 

 

this is purely what you can get new

 

 

edit: why are you getting a B series mobo on a CPU you can overclock?

yeah. 450 watt is plenty for most builds. 

 

if you are getting a 1080ti and 2700x/8700k you will be cutting it a bit close. 

 

there is allways the 550 watt version of the PSU

but honestly 450 watts is fine

look at the used market for people selling Z170 or Z270 motherboards. that will be you best bet. no point spending way to much on a retail board. (overpriced as the boards are not being produced anymore)

Why are you getting a 7th gen 7600K, get an 8350K instead (if you MUST stick with Intel).

because, if you read his post, his friedn is selling him the CPU.

 

 

personally i would get a new Ryzen 1200 (yes its 1,5 years old at this point, but its still 550$ budget king)

Alright, but why should I get the 1200 over an i5 7600k?

newer plattform with CPUs for the same Mobo untill 2020.

overclockability on B series boards

 

pretty much the same game performance unless you spend the extra and overclock the 7600k. 

 

btw, get the rx 580 as GPU is pretty much allways going to be the bottleneck at this budget tier

I am going to stick with the i5 7600k, I don't really plan on overclocking.

So if I get the rx580 you sent with my i5, I'll be golden and I won't run into any issues?

Yes, that will be good.

 

Do recommend spending the little extra on the faster Ram and saving on buying the Inland SSD

Awesome, thank you so much for your help. I will probably end up doing that.
