How does my build look?

mxk
 Share

I've been chugging along on an older amd a8-6600k and a gtx 960 2gb for some time now with ultra low settings on csgo, and I want to upgrade so I can actually play the other games in my steam library. Christmas is coming up and my mom told me if its all I ask for, I'll probably get it. I want to stick with the 9600k and z390. The things I cheaped out on are things I plan to upgrade, which is the cpu cooler (gonna get a kraken in the future) and SSD. If I have to I'll take out the sleeved cables and put red tape over my power supply cables until I get $27 for the actual cables.

 

 

**NOTE** The parts that I change a lot is the GPU and CPU based on how much costs at the time

get a slightly cheaper case and fans and a cheaper 1070ti, use the money for an 8700k, 240gb ssd or slightly better cooler.

csgo, gta v, siege, pubg, the crew 2, assasins creed. Playing on 144hz. Doing some light editing. If I was doing any more than just editing 1080p60 csgo clips together with effects then I would buy ryzen, but I'm not doing more than that sooo

Is the monitor free-sync? What model is it?

I was thinking about doing the cheaper case, and there is an evga 1070ti ultra silent for like $40 less so I was probably gonna go with that. The case, I wanted the rgb ambient lighting and control over nzxt stuff but I mean I can buy a hue thingy in the future with the kraken.

Has freesync, but I don't really care for it to be honest because If i'm running high enough fps it's gonna be smooth regardless.

you can get a cheaper dark rock pro 3/4 or NH-D15 instead to save some money.

I'll probably go with the dark rock pro 4. Noctua is great but the look of their stuff kills me inside. Usually i'll take performance over looks but for some reason that poop/coffee brown kills me inside.

In any event you should get a case that actually has airflow

at half the price of an 8700/K the R5 2600 is perfectly fine for gaming

Going to want a 240GB SSD at minimum

NZXT's fans are overpriced, and the Kraken is an overpriced meme for it's cooling performance.

Better off with an i7 8700 in most cases vs an 8600K, price with the cheaper board should end up about the same.
