First off, unless you are absoloutley certain you need 32 gbs of ram (if you're doing somewhat intensive editing or such), Id reccomend getting a set of 16gb (2x8) of 3600 ram (I'd reccomend the Trident Z Neo kit as they're designed specifically for Ryzen), as 3600mhz is the sweet spot for 3rd gen ryzen. Also, you only really need 16 for gaming. For the mobo, I'd reccomend grabbing an x570 board as it will have a more robust feature set most likley (and support for pcie 4.0 incase you buy an AMD gpu or nvidia gpu with support for pcie 4.0 further down the line). Also, I'd reccomend more than 500 gbs of storage. I made the mistake on my first build of only buying 512 gbs of ssd storage and nothing else, and it was a nightmare trying to play more than 4 games at a time. Heres a list that sums it all up.
If you have any questions, feel free to reply to this comment!
Alright, thank you!
They're probably trying to reach 144 hz in more demanding titles, which the 5700xt is pretty good for!
I've looked over the build and made a few corrections. I've created two potential parts lists, the only differences being the platforms and ram.
List 1: Intel (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tNsfdm)
This is based off the list you posted above. I made a few corrections here and there to save money for the same performance (SSD, Ram, Case, Periphrials). The 9900k is better than the 9900 because it's faster off the bat, and can be overclocked higher if you'd ever like to mess around with overclocking.
List 2: AMD (https://pcpartpicker.com/list/tTjQdm)
Based off the intel list, the only change is the Cpu and Motherboard, along with the previously mentioned intel changes (Except Ram, Ryzen prefers faster Ram). The 3900x and 9990k are very neck and neck. The 3900x being a 12 core 24 thread thats great for both gaming and multitasking (If you ever want to stream or do creative work in the future) along with matching performance at 1440p and 4k to the 9900k. Its only real downfall being its 1080p performance, but with the dell monitor, that wont be an issue.
If you have any questions about any of the changes, let me know! Additionaly, if you have an extra 60-80 dollars after you've ordered everything, I'd suggest buying a cable kit from Cablemod, it really provides a good pop of color, though its purley cosmetic.
https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/pmJCzN Most of this should work with Mystic Light, feel free to ask any questions.
What kind of programs do you use for music production and editing? Do they favor single or multi threaded performance? If multithreaded is more useful for your functions, then I'd suggest using an AMD chip, like the 3700x.
Heres an AMD build while im at it: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/K4Gmk6
Liking the background, great build!
Looks good to me, I'd reccomend something along the lines of the new gtx 1660 super, as you dont need a lot of horsepower to run most 1080p tvs at hotels.
Liking the background, great build! Thoughts on the 2070 super?
This was actually more of a challenge then I expected, but I think it worked out well!
Its only 60 bucks over, which can be remided by changing the case or removing the fans, but I think this is a good baseline. The 2060 super and 2700x should be able to preform 1080p 144hz with ease, and the 2700x can be easily overclocked on the b450 strixs good vrms along with the 360mm aio. You could definetley do better on performance, but I was going more for looks on this build.
About the amd chipset error: How am4 works is that all motherboards made before matisse (Ryzen 3000 series) will need to be bios updated to work. To do so, you would need a 2000 series or 1000 series cpu to update them. Motherboards are now starting to be updated out of the factory so they are comptabile, but thats not always the case. If youd like a motherboard that would just work, I'd reccomend either a x570 board or looking for a b450 board from msi with the word MAX is the title as that should already be factory updated.
Additionally, I'd make sure your motherboard could support two nvme drives at full speed. Not too fammilar with how nvme works and Id just make sure you arent wasting money.
Ram: I already have a kit of 16gb corsair ram, so I was planning on buying another kit to fill all dim slots and get 32 gigs.
Case: I prefer the black case or a grey one as all my components are black or silver (Nitro+ has a silver back plate, despite it appearing white.)
Gpu: Personally, I'm just not a fan of the pulse's design, I don't like the red as I prefer rgb to be able to customize the look.
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/3d23b8 there we go, just another monitor option.
True that, gimmie a sec
There you go
Lemme whip something up for you, and you're welcome
First things first, do you plan on streaming at all, or just gaming period? If you're just gaming, id stick with the 9700k, but if you plan on ever streaming in the future, I'd highly reccomend switching to the 3700x from amd, it only preforms 5% slower in games but has double the threads and is cheaper. Additionaly, I'd suggest putting switching the hard drive out for a 1tb ssd and 2 tb hard drive if possible. Lastly, the 2080 super might be a bit overkill, what games do you plan to play? If you only really play esports titles, you could gain a lot of money from switching the gpu to something cheaper. (I.E. CSGO, Overwatch, league, etc)
If you have any questions, feel free to ask
This fits pretty much everything you requested except preferably a nvidia card. The only reason I put in a 5700 is because a) its cheaper than cards from nvidia in the same price range (2060) and b) its faster than the 2060 by quite a bit. Of course, you could always sub in a 1660ti or 2060 if you really prefer nvidia, but I'd personally go for the 5700. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
Here you go! https://pcpartpicker.com/list/vhJqk6
Its over budget by 35 dollars but I don't think that's too big of a deal. The 5700xt and 2700x should be able to reach 144hz 1080p in destiny 2, and definitely in fortnite, on the highest settings (If not, definitely high). Additionaly, if you dont like the look of the flat black cables, you could buy a this cable kit in the future: https://www.amazon.com/CableMod-Classic-ModMesh-Cable-Kit/dp/B07HMFC5M6/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=evga+white+cables&qid=1571272664&sr=8-7
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
I havent personally used it, but I've used other deepcool products before, namley a 240mm aio. From what I've been told, its one of the better air coolers in its price bracket, plus it just looks really pretty if looks are a concern. And the Hdd and ssd could be switched for a 1tb ssd if thats the case. And I adore the Meshify C too, its a stunning case imo.
Your list is very good in my own opinion and I dont think theres much room for change. However, if you can save up another 200 dollars, heres something slightly more reliable and more customizable looks wise. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zT2BPn
Yeah, I more so meant something simple that really won’t go out of style (Fractal and NZXT cases are a good example). One of the cases I was considering was the S2 Vision by fractal. Have you had any issues with Fractal before?
I understand that, I meant more of a case were its aesthetics wont become tasteless in a years time or so. For instance, some of cooler masters more "Gamer-y" cases will look silly in a few years (In my opinion at least).
https://pcpartpicker.com/list/GcMwrV there we go, there's the actual link.
I tried to make something efficent and pretty for you my dude! No rgb as requested except on the motherboard, where it can be turned on if it really bothers you that much. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
So im assuming the best bet from what you and @eesti have said is to either get a 5700xt with some good cooling and a competitve price, or buy a 1080ti used? Ill look into 1080tis in my area to see if I can find any at a good price.
More so just a reliable rgb keyboard that feels nice and is quiet. I was just wondering if anyone had any better suggestions.
That’s not what I meant, I was asking for some keyboard recommendations.
That’s just an issue with using x370 and ryzen 2, my board was shipped with a ryzen 2 bios that’s stable. And it might just be a monitor issue, but the post code made me think it was a post issue
I might try it if I run out of issues, but I saw a few posts online of similar issues where nothing changed. I think it might be a Mobo issue, not sure
It won’t come out though? By striped, I meant the part where you place the screwdriver is all worn out and won’t turn.
Did you buy that zotac 1080ti used, or have you had it for a while and bought it when there was still stock left? I love the pascal zotac amp design lol.
Yeah, if I could find another and scrounge up some money, might buy two strix ones for lols lmao
Alright. There seems to be a bunch of used mining 1070tis around 150-200 on ebay right now, so I think it should be fine???
King Crimson, aka, if time alt-tabbed and then came back after getting soda
Alright, thanks for your help!
Nice build man! Was wondering what the mouse was, looks dope and I was planning on a black and green build to match my new keyboard
Alright, thanks so much!
Either that or maybe a Radeon 7 if it’s good, since it’s basically a 2080 lol
Alright, thanks for the info!
Yo, love the keycaps, what are they? And do you know if they are compatible with Razer Greens? (I have the black widow v2)
How does the h60 work with the case?
Alright, good to know. Thank you so much!
These are pretty good, nice lists! I have some amazing news though. My friend got a new 2070 so he’s going to sell me his 1060 6gb (Evga dual fan) for 25 bucks! I’ve come up with a good list under budget to support it now, but thanks for giving your input, as these seem pretty good and definitely to be taken into consideration if my friend decides to back out
Yeah, I’d like to occasionally stream my games to twitch while I’d play, but not often
Alright, thank you for the lengthy explanation! I’m probably going to go with the 1700x, but maybe the 2700x if I can fit it in my budget
Alright, thanks for your time!
