First PC build

b2c0nb0y25
 Share

I am looking to build a PC for 3d modeling and light animation, gaming, and streaming (possibly). I am looking at about $1500 and would like to play at 1080p 144hz. Also, I would prefer matx and I have a mouse and headset (Razer and Logitech respectively) but no keyboard or monitor. I don't exactly know  if this is possible with my budget, but Any help or recommendations are greatly appreciated!

$1500 USD? 

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

Yes, but that is a soft budget, I could go as high as $1750

I realized your price point is basically perfect for my PC, so I copied that. I chose an 8700k instead of 8086k since it's more cost effective, and went with 32GB of ram for modelling, but if you think you need only 16GB you can get half to lower the budget. The case is also subjective, I thought it looked cool but it's up to you.

Thank you, my one possible issue is that I don't have a keyboard or monitor, but I will be a little while before I have the budget anyway, so a bit more saving won't hurt.

If that's the case you can save on the immediate expense by getting half the ram and no hard drive, then buy those later. You can user that money for peripherals instead. (also since you're not doing photo or video editing you can go a little cheap on the display.)

I do have a hdd in my laptop, but I'm not sure if it will work in a desktop, and you make a good point about the ram. Thank you so much!

Yeah it'll work. The SATA connector is a standard.

I was looking at an AMD system, partly because it's cheaper (generally) would there be any draw backs by going with a ryzen 7?

It's pretty good for the non-overclocking route, but 3D software loves ram, so faster DDR4 should be a priority.

No huge drawbacks really, you could get an 8 core CPU and save some cash. It's slower in gaming but for productivity tasks it's usually superior.

It's a great system for modelling.

How much slower would it be? Would it still be able to support 144hz?

since your not ocing and are mostly doing productivity i would instead recommend a ryzen 8 core cpu and no aio this will save a few hundred dollars

with the saved money i was able to 

  • upgrade the gpu to a 1070ti
  • upgrade the hdd to 4tb since you said you might be streaming
  • include a monitor(144hz) and mechanical keyboard
