Have always played computer, but I've never built a PC before. To be honest, my brain swirled around when doing the research. I think I have a solid part list, but would like comments and suggestions to help me further (as it is with the first attempt, I continue to doubt my choices).
PCPartPicker Part List: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6Csvn7
CPU: Intel Core i7-9700K 3.6 GHz 8-Core Processor ($357.95) CPU Cooler: Corsair H115i RGB PLATINUM 97 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($149.99) Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON ATX LGA1151 Motherboard ($179.89) Memory: Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32 GB (2 x 16 GB) DDR4-3000 Memory ($169.99) Storage: Corsair MP510 240 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($43.99) Storage: Corsair MP510 960 GB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive ($124.99) Video Card: MSI GeForce RTX 2060 SUPER 8 GB GAMING X Video Card ($409.99) Power Supply: Corsair RMx (2018) 650 W 80+ Gold Certified Fully Modular ATX Power Supply ($94.89)
What i would like to get as a end resault is a computer i can use for open world games (would like to play VR at some point) as well as CAD design and simulations. budget i would say around 1500$, with out case (maybe designing/making my own or the Corsair Crystal 680X)
Some Noob questions:
I see alot of builds in here that dont have a CPU Cooler, is it needed for this type of build or is it only for higher spec builds?
GPU, there are so many version of them.... the reason i picked the Super was that it has 8g and the other versions got 6g, but is it worth the price difference?
I picked rtx 2060s and had a plan to upgrade to 2 of those and 64gb ram later on, but looks like you cant run them linked, or have i misunderstanded somthing?? if you cant is the rtx 2070 worth the much higher price?
Tanks alot for your time and response.
