Wow. Feels like you kind of just picked the most expensive in each category. Even then I'll legitimately help you save money.

  • That case is WAY too expensive, the NZXT cases are much better and are cheaper

  • you have 2 cpu coolers in that build

  • You seriously don't need a 1000 watts. 750 should be fine

Everything looks great! If you can have a slightly higher budget(say 650 euros or so), you can get the GTX 1660 TI which will have you setting at a better system and you don't have to upgrade for a while.

Hey j.higins,

Nice to know there are many people that are building new pcs(myself included), anyways I have a few points to share with you

  • Getting something like a Ryzen 5 2600 instead is better bang for the bung and will put more money in your wallet to get a 1660ti

  • With that saved money I would get a 1660ti for future sustainability

Other than that everything looks great!

Well It wouldn't be harder to cool, it has been tested by someone else and smaller should be better, since it takes less space, right?

It looks like you don't really need a water cooler. For something like the Ryzen 3, the stock cooler is more than enough and can even get a little bit of cooling even when overclocked. You probably don't need x470 mobo, a b450 mobo should do just fine. I would get the Rx 580 gpu instead because even though it is only slightly worse(by most 5-8 fps worse), It has a much lower price. That's All the advice I have, hope you have a fun time building your PC!

I would just get a B450 mobo, and a Be quiet Air cooler(which is already more than enough), and get a rtx 2080

It looks great, but you might want to exchange that cpu for i5-9600k because it is cheaper and faster, and if you ever change your mind about overclocking down the road, you have the option to if you want

Your build looks good, but the problem is you are going have FOUR pcie expansion slots disabled, for items like wifi adapters, game capture cards and that sort. If you do not use those, your build looks okay

I would go for the i5-9600K because it is about 5% slower but also around a 100 quid cheaper. I would also reccomend getting a 120HZ 1080 p monitor as 1080p vs 1440p is a minimal upgrade, but 60HZ to 120 HZ, that is a really good investment for you gaming experience and your eyeballs.

The RX 580 will not be able to hit high frame rates such as 144fps at 1080p max settings in games like apex legends, fortnite, or semi-graphically demanding games, but it can run above 60 fps easily. Something like the 2070, on the other hand, could be a better suited gpu to hit frame rates such 144 fps

The difference is that they have a different architecture, meaning how they work, but other the performance differences they're not much different.

Also, you psu is too small, if you are getting the K verion of i7-7700, you want to overclock. So you defeinelty need at least 550W to 600W psu. Would also upgrade to a i7-8700k

Everything looks good, but for better airflow you can add one at the top for intake so it goes straight to the cpu. 1 exhaust and 1 intake is already provided from the case

I think you should sell the current ram so you don't have to save as much, and then get the ram I would recommend if thats okay.

and also faster ram, at least ddr4-3000, dual channel( two sticks of 4gb instead of 8gb)

You might as well just get a ryzen 5 2nd gen and get a b450 if you want to start of slow and upgrade down the line

The 1660 ti looks good but the mobo is not recommend for a high caliber cpu like the ryzen 7, a B450 mobo is adequate for that cpu

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Do I need to add intake fans for NZXT H500?"

  • 9 months ago
  • 1 point

Probably not because it would exhaust the air that would be pulled in, with a 2 in 1 out system there would be more air to exhaust thus stays longer in the case and is used by air cooler on your gpu and cpu cooler. But ith a in 2 out system there is the same amount of air push in as it pushes out so the air stays less time in the case and is not used as much by air cooler in the system. I think this is how it works but I'm not completely sure.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Multi purpose build evaluation"

It all looks good but probably don't need a water cooler unless you are overclocking. A BE QUIET! are cooler is good enough. You also do not have a case listed, but I would recommend the NZXT H500i if looking for a new case. BTW make sure to have at least 2 intake fans and have more intake fans than exhaust as that creates a positive airflow, which is better for thermals

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Part List Opinions Please"

  • 9 months ago

The cooler is definitely overkill, you could probably get a decent air cooler for 2000-3000 rupees. You should probably use that extra money to 3 case fans as well( 2 intake and 1 exhaust should do just fine)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Do I need to add intake fans for NZXT H500?"

  • 9 months ago

You should always have more intake then exhaust as it creates positive airflow which is better than negative airflow(more exhausts than intakes)

Since all the RGB parts are from differnet brands, changing colors or effects with the RGB are going to be very hard to sync. If it was all on one brand, there would be one program that sync all the RGB effects together.

If you want to play at 1080p 144hz, I would go with a 2060 for a more consistent 144hz refresh rate on all games.

The Rx 50 is honestly a realty good GPU. I have it in my build and It works great for first person shooters. It gets about 90fps in apex, a 100+ fps in siege, and about 72 fps on pubg at medium settings(every other game listed is at high). I think the only change needed is the rx 580 if you want to make it cheaper.

and when upgrading monitors, your max resoultion shoud 1440p because when 4k is just too expensive and not really worth it when 1440p is really good. You should go for a high refresh rate 1440p monitor when upgrading
