New PC / Upgrade | Your Thoughts

Optane^
 Share

Hi all. I'm going to be upgrading my pc in the future so I threw together a list of what I'm looking for and if you have any ideas.

 

Purpose: Streaming & Gaming. My current PC doesn't have any sort of "flare" it's just black and well, black. I want a white build & some RGB so that's what my parts are based around. My current 4790K is struggling with streaming & gaming so I want something with 6 cores. I went for the 8700K because i'll probably lock it at 5Ghz and then I should be fine. I'm not a huge fan of AMD so I'll spend the extra cash.

 

I'm gonna use my same GPU right now because I'll probably tear it down & paint it.

 

As for my case, I have a Fractal Design S that's just too big, i wan't something just a little smaller but I'm not sure if everything will fit so I might re-use that case... Haven't decided.

 

Let me know what you think & if you have any EXP with any of these parts.

5GHz OC on an 8700k is building an oven, not a PC. You will want to delid if you go that route.

 

Also, Western Digital is a nice company and all, but Samsung SSDs are faster.

You may not "like" AMD, but they've got Intel beat both with stream quality and value. Might want to consider a Ryzen 7.

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

Well, WD SSD is because it's white & fit's the theme honestly. I also don't think i'd notice a difference between the WD & Samsung. Anything is faster than a HDD. I think the 8700K is just a placeholder for the 9900 / 9700 because I still havent seen enough temps / anything of the 9900 yet. I dunno.

I've never had a good exp with AMD so I want to stay away. I'll spend the extra since I've never had one issue with Intel with mine or client PC's. Most of the PC's I work on with dead CPU's are AMD & I'm not exaggerating, either. To me it just seems like there HAS to be a reason AMD is cheaper. I think Intel has more powerful cores, AMD gives you more cores. I dunno, I just want to use Intel for this build / any future builds. Plus, streaming isn't my focus, it's just a once in awhile thing when my friends want to watch. Intel is the king of gaming.

My first PC had an AMD A10 (and it was an HP laptop), which died within a year. I thought I'd never buy AMD again, until I got a Ryzen. Now I may never get Intel again, reinforced by how terrible our PCs are at work
