Don't take my advice unless someone verifies it, but I think the replacements below would save you on the order of $100. I think 750W would be good enough for you based on the PCPartPicker list.
This PSU: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JW7M3VX/
This RAM + SSD combo (faster RAM for the 3600X, albeit not RGB, and the same SSD): https://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails?ItemList=Combo.3924620
I have this monitor and love it. It is only 120hz though.
It's a little black antenna with to two wires coming from it. Should be in the bag of parts that came with the mobo.
If it really didn't come with one you could get this: https://www.amazon.com/Eightwood-Antenna-Connector-Magnetic-Wireless/dp/B07JVDNDCR/
Upgrade to Windows 10 for free. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/accessibility/windows10upgrade

Make sure you have drivers for peripherals that can take advantage of them (ie mouse/keyboard) windows will usually get a default one that works, but you can usually customize your stuff a lot more if you get the one from the manufacturer.
Have fun gaming :)
I think that this would be a good option: https://www.amazon.com/Matrix-RP-17-Performance-Gaming-Laptop/dp/B091YCSW3F/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=Matrix+4800H&qid=1622680281&sr=8-1
Ryzen 7 4800H 8-cores 16-threads CPU
32GB of 3200MHz RAM in dual-channel
17.3" QHD IPS 165Hz screen
RTX 3060 GPU
1TB NVME SSD
Available with a smaller 15.6" screen if you need a more compact notebook...
Since prices for components are extremely high now, especially prices for GPUs, a pre-built Gaming PC would be a better value choice, and this is a good one: https://www.amazon.com/CyberpowerPC-Xtreme-i5-10400F-GeForce-GXiVR8060A10/dp/B08FBK2DK5/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Gaming+PC&qid=1613033141&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFWOU0yU1JaSzRWMkomZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAwOTM4ODgxMjc2TkJCSVlVTkJUJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTEwMjU1MDNIMzQxNDcyUFlERk0md2lkZ2V0TmFtZT1zcF9hdGYmYWN0aW9uPWNsaWNrUmVkaXJlY3QmZG9Ob3RMb2dDbGljaz10cnVl
Q: is your SSD large enough to hold everything currently on your HDD?
Yes: you are looking at "cloning" your drive. this keeps all programs installed avoids windows install etc. resources can be found here (video) and here (text)
No: Install windows from scratch on the SSD, use the same license key you used for the previous install and call support if the key gets rejected
I have one of these, and i love it
It's a little pricey new. I got lucky and bought one second hand that is in great condition.
Use code triple15 for $30 off
Windows could be had for free if you just go with the unactivated version. Just gotta download it from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10 and prepare it to an USB stick. Then during the installation skip the activation.
I don't really see paying for Antivirus to be worth it either. There are free software, but like common sense Windows defender (the Windows 10s own antivirus) and free version of malwarebytes antimalware should be all that's needed. And like ublock origin on chrome for blocking ads.
Could also get 4GB version of RX 480, the 8GB version is only better with a few games at the moment, meaning you get to use slightly higher texture quality.
R9 290 for sure.
Though EVGA.com has B-STOCK GTX 970's for $250.
I don't really expect anything new for that price range for some time. Maybe $20-30 price cuts at some point or something.
Unfortunately right now is a bad time to buy computer components. While what your asking to do on a computer isn't demanding on the computer the low range of computer prices is higher than normal.
Here is some links to some cheapish PC's. Might not be great deals but it will give you a idea of prices...
^^^ This I am curious about, it's pretty much right what your looking for. It's in your price range and will likely do what you want. Though it doesn't have a paid for version of windows. You would need to buy a code online (20 bucks if you know where to look or less). I would also bring someone with you to check the computer if you can or find a way to verify the GPU (1050ti) as it's value is 80% of this build or close to that so you want to know 100% it works.
Something like these is what you want.
If you have powerful enough wifi in both locations, are willing to deal with some input lag / compression artifacts, and you have a laptop, then you might want to consider leaving your desktop at home and using a service like Parsec to remote connect to it. I won’t make a sales pitch on Parsec or anything, so here’s the link so you can judge for yourself: https://parsec.app
Are you buying in US?.. if so then you can buy this..
This should easily run games at 1080p.. in future I would recommend adding another stick of 8GB ram in this to make a total of 16GB..
ASUS Micro ATX DDR4 LGA 1151 Motherboards H110M-K https://www.amazon.com/dp/B017UL7NKQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_EXXQD93Y5TQSZPNFP2JG?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
This motherboard should be compatible with the 7700k. I don’t know if you also have a cpu cooler but lga 115x coolers are pretty cheap and the 7700k doesn’t run stupidly hot
The gpu will be a bit difficult to get. Scalping has put quite a dent in the market. I’d recommend aiming toward in order of worst to best case for the price: 1050, 1050 ti, 1060 3gb (not the best, I’ve owned one but beggars can’t be choosers), 1650, 1650 super or gddr6. I’d highly recommend finding one in the used market, either it be Facebook marketplace or Craigslist. I wouldn’t spend more than 300 for the 1060 and to the right of that list or 200 less than for the left. Assume 100-200 respectively for each. It’s been rough but the worlds been crazy.
yep I came here to say this. Alternatively if you will be constantly traveling, you could get a GPU brace that firmly holds it from both vertical and horizontal movement like this one: https://www.amazon.com/Antec-Graphics-Anodized-Aerospace-Aluminum/dp/B089NRZKW5 and just mount the base of the brace to the case so it cannot move.
Acer makes one of the better 1440P IPS editing displays. Their H257HU has extremely good response times for such a pixel dense IPS display.
Almost 1000 ratings on Amazon with a 4.5 star average, it's the premier product for your purposes. $300 to boot, can't really beat that.
Just had a write-up on my research for someone over at r/suggestapc. That should definitely help if you're willing to look at some rigs between $1000-$1500.
For $1000, I would go for the HP Omen 870-213w. i7-7700 NVIDIA GTX 1070. $1,055.55 on sale at Amazon.
I'm using the MSI Optix MAG27C and I love it.
It's 27", curved, 144hz w/ 1ms response time and I love it. Great, crisp colors, perfectly bright, and great for every use I've thrown at it. Right now the MAG271C is $296 on Amazon.
I don't see any major differences between the MAG27C and the MAG271C.
I know aoc makes one... I think it's one of the cheapest 1440p monitors. Doesn't look like it's that bad, depending on how close you are to your budget
Which particular one? And what's your budget?
The 27" 1440p 144Hz monitor I would recommend buying now is the Nixeus EDG27S v2
The 32" 1440p 144Hz monitor is the LG 32GK850F-B
Both are US prices and the LG is only discounted by $200 until 16th March so if you are looking to buy now I wouldn't wait, it's crazy value. Both are great but at the same price I think the LG is a bit better as you said you are looking for a bigger screen.
Let me know if you have any questions!
Yeah, the graphics card to RX 570: https://jet.com/product/GIGABYTE-Radeon-RX-570-DirectX-12-GV-RX570GAMING-4GD-4GB-256-Bit-GDDR5-PCI-Expre/6e487fa411ac42499eb9e806c3e3d77e
Use the spring15 code on that, so it's like $163 before taxes. RX 570 is like twice more performance than the RX 460.
B250M ones: such as https://pcpartpicker.com/product/KWjWGX/asrock-b250m-hdv-micro-atx-lga1151-motherboard-b250m-hdv
Btw, are you from US? There are some great deals on Jet.com for the G4560 for example, free shipping and 15% off with code SPRING15 https://jet.com/product/Pentium-G4560-Processor/27ecae4d467b445f969180bbf4e718d4
Get the i5-7500 for like $170 from jet.com using code triple15.
I'd also get an EVGA GQ 650W power supply there for like $63, quite a bit more reputable than the Rosewill.
Make a 2nd order for it to use the triple15 code again as it's 15% off (up to $30 savings).
In the ~$1100 build I made:
i5-7600K can be overclocked to reach something like 4.5-4.8GHz quite easily.
The motherboard actually supports 3000MHz RAM. Your B250M motherboard will limit the RAM speed to 2400MHz, it will work, but just have to run it a bit slower.
GTX 1070 is a decent upgrade from RX 480, like 30% better.
> For example I know I can't cheap out on PSU so I selected the more expensive 80+ Gold Corsair RM
Yeah, quality PSU is worth paying for, but I think I'd get like the EVGA GQ 650W for ~$62 from jet.com with code: triple15
It should be good enough PSU for anyone, so I don't really see it being worth it to pay more for the RMx.
>I'm playing Hearthstone, Warcraft TFT, CS:GO so other reddit users have told me RX 480 is more than enough, but 1070 is better value?
Even just like a RX 460 or GTX 1050 are enough for that. RX 480 and GTX 1070 are cards for demanding new games.
If you're only playing those games or some other easier to run games you could seriously just spend like $500 on the PC or something like that.
Nah it's cool your build is kind of looking like my build lol.
Yeah the RX 480 is better definitely.
Here is a cheap one on jet:
This is the one I have as well and it runs great!
Also use the TRIPLE15 code on this to lower the price to $160. There is probably an ASUS rebate too that can give you some money back in a couple of months. The jet code only does a maximum of $30 off per order. So try not to go over $200 per order or you will not get the maximum discount possible.
So buy this rx 480 separately.
Yup, except for the stores listed.
Like OutletPC adds shipping costs that aren't listed so Newegg is cheaper. And the CPU should be gotten from Jet.com with the code like we talked earlier.
And for power supply you could also make a 2nd Jet.com order to get a EVGA GQ 650W. $62 If you use the triple15 code the second time. Could also add the SSD to that same order to save money
Found this too, best deal I've seen on a gaming laptop in a while.
GTX 1070 should be your only option.
$337.31 With Promo Code: TRIPLE15 and Opting Out of Free Returns and Paying by Debit Card
or this model
$359.65 With Promo Code: TRIPLE15 and Opting Out of Free Returns and Paying by Debit Card
If you're into doing rebates you may wanna check if that one has one otherwise https://jet.com/product/ASUS-Dual-fan-Radeon-RX-480-4GB-OC-Edition-AMD-Gaming-Graphics-Card-with-DP-14-H/fbf04dad92cc4935b9430feded6104d7 has a $20 rebate.
You could have a 1060 6GB for the price of your Radeon.
Your motherboard is litteraly twice the price of the one recommended in the blue build.
You really should invest in a better screen to be honest. Depends on what you wanna play, but something like this for fps is a beast (you won't regret it) : https://jet.com/product/AOC-G2460PQU-Black-24-1ms-144HZ-HDMI-Widescreen-LED-Backlight-Gaming-Monitor-B/b735404cde2e4ca7b6a9c95b48aef3f6
Hope I helped you (i'm pretty new to this section)
Is the optical drive needed? Planning to use DVDs?
Have you got an SSD already? I'd 100% get one. Like it could be fit in to this budget too by going with a cheaper power supply and dropping the optical drive for example.
Use code triple15 @ Jet.com
EVGA GQ 650W, modular, gold certified: $59 https://jet.com/product/EVGA-Corporation-210-GQ-0650-V1-EVGA-650-GQ-Power-Supply-120-V-AC-230-V-AC-Input/ec087483d16642c2bb28e3eff4ec5ee2
And 240GB SSD from PNY for $55 https://jet.com/product/PNY-CS1311-240-GB-25-Inch-Internal-SSD-SATA-III-SSD7CS1311240RB/52417256ff3a4502b68d7902aa40f227
No probs! :)
According to EVGA's specs: http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=120-G1-0650-XR
You should be a-okay to run it at 100V. I would look into /r/buildapcproxy to get the prices you want, although warranties would be tough. :X I know there's a huge selection when it comes to parts in Japan. It's too bad prices are higher than the US. :( Good luck!
If one decides to go with GTX 970 I'd be tempted to go with the $250 B-STOCK cards from EVGA.com http://www.evga.com/Products/ProductList.aspx?type=8&family=GeForce+900+Series+Family&chipset=GTX+970
GTX 970. Is the Nvidia card that has the same performance. Cheapest I've seen is this one. From EVGA.com B-STOCK: http://www.evga.com/Products/Product.aspx?pn=04G-P4-2977-RX
Usually GTX 970 is around $310+.
Yea, i5-4590 is slightly better.
Wifi card, for example: http://pcpartpicker.com/part/gigabyte-wireless-network-card-gcwb867di
For Nvidia cards at good price: EVGA B-STOCK GTX 970 $250
It's a solid gaming build, you might want to look into the Ryzen CPUs if you're not completely wedded to Intel.
The i5 7600 is the next gen but the price point down from the i7 version. The i7 will benchmark ahead of the i5, but is more expensive. You can run comparisons here. I included a Ryzen CPU for you to look at, but then obviously motherboard etc will need to change, I can run up another build for you if you decide you like the look of Ryzen.
Do you know what power supply your old PC has? Power supplies are definitely worth spending money on, as they can trash everything you've built if they crap out in the wrong way. There are tier lists that will give you a good idea of what is good and not so good. You don't want to go below tier 3 ideally, especially when you're spending this much money, you're entrusting it all to your PSU.
And you're welcome! Happy to help.
All you have to do is put the greater than sign to the left of the sentence. It's on the same key as the question mark.
>Like this. Sorry since you still can't see it directly lol.
My favorite way to quote things is just by clicking a button above the reply box. I do this by using an extension called Reddit Enhancement Suite.
Being a hardcore gamer only thing that is good enough for me is the 1080p 144hz monitors and better.
https://jet.com/product/Acer-GN246HL-BBID-24-inch-Wide-Screen-LED-Monitor/0d71c51df29b4d3da77fbea292536537 don't forget to use the code: triple15 for 15% off.
I'm really loving 144Hz monitors. Even if the PC couldn't deliver 144 FPS all the time. I play a lot of esports type games like Overwatch, LoL, CS:GO, Rocket League where the 144Hz refresh rate can really matter.
So that Acer is entry level product for a proper gaming monitor. Uses the older DVI connector for 144Hz, doesn't have displayport.
Note 144Hz needs to be set manually in Windows, by default all the gaming monitors are 60Hz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LML-bKLwgtU
So that Acer is entry level product for a proper gaming monitor. Uses the older DVI for 144Hz, doesn't have displayport.
>And also would you suggest it needing an alternative cooling system or will stock be good enough?
Stock should be enough, even if it doesn't look very sexy.
I think the options are $175ish for RX 470 4GB from Jet.com using the code "triple15",
or spending more to get the GTX 1060 6GB https://jet.com/product/Geforce-GTX1060-OC-Version/ab4357a2dab045439387b435693c7a74
I have a couple dacs as it is (fiio e7, and Firestone Audio Fireye II USB DAC/Headphones Amplifier). I'll keep an eye out for a better dac though - pushing to a Qinpu Q-2 Hybrid Integrated Amplifier, then to another one -Dayton Audio DTA-100a Class-T Digital Amplifier 50 WPC (Black) (the q-2 only has 2.5w amplification, I think it's really just to feed through for tube sound).
the dac currently using https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002BFH1X6/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It's fine, but the general opinion is that the 4gb 960 isn't worth it. You're better off saving money and going with a 2gb version or stepping up to a 970. It is a decent price, but I would say only go for it close to the $200 mark.
Edit: just saw this on /r/buildapcsales http://www.evga.com/Products/ProductList.aspx?type=8
Yea, here's a good deal on GTX 960. http://pcpartpicker.com/part/evga-video-card-04gp41962kr
Or even cheaper on jet.com with that code. https://jet.com/product/EVGA-GeForce-GTX-960-Graphic-Card-122-GHz-Core-128-GHz-Boost-Clock-4-GB-GDDR5-PC/3ada3f3f5eb14e6f8ceb81ae838991c3
If you want Nvidia you should go with GTX 970 instead. It will cost a bit more, but is much more powerful than the GTX 960.
GTX 960 is weaker card than my 4 year old HD 7970 / R9 280x.
For example https://jet.com/product/ZOTAC-GeForce-GTX-970-ZT-90101-10P-4GB-256-Bit-GDDR5-PCI-Express-30-x16-HDCP-Rea/e7f49c84a9a34b4f87f40cfe506e5491
That one with the sale code should be pretty good deal.
Yeah that power supply will work worldwide, you are just gonna need a cable for it to work. If you order the psu in Germany it will come with the right one though.
I know the EVGA G1 won't be able to do it due to the 20A 12V rails.
The PS 1000 does 83A on a single 12V rail.
The only thing to keep in mind is that you need to use two pcie cables. Essentially this is a crossfire card and each 8 pin power connector should be a separate cable.
I've never owned a 295x2 and I'm no expert on PSU's but this is what I got from googling away.
I guess he could just save the hassle and throw in two GTX 970's.
GPUshack is a fucking bro. 3 GB card, 120 dollars.
Also, Benchmarks for the i3-4150
The 7950+i3-4150 is MORE than enough to kill the games he wants to play at 1080p, 60fps.
I looked for another source. Passmark puts the FX-4200 at a price/performance ratio of 54.7 and the i3-4150 at 42.8. Hardly the 50% you were claiming. In the multithreaded CPUMark test, they are pretty even although the i3 is still better. But, the i3 has almost double the single thread rating (which tends to be more important for gaming). Comparison
They can't figure out how to install windows, but they want to build their own PC? Newegg's how to build a pc videos explain everything really easily. If they can't put the hour in to learning how to assemble the parts and install windows from a USB, they should buy a prebuilt. A brand new 4GB USB drive shipped from Amazon is $5. They'll probably get more use out of the $5 thumb drive than an optical drive unless they want to burn a lot of CDs. If they don't have a PC to begin with, sure get an optical drive to avoid the hassle of going to the library or borrowing a friend's PC.
> !EDIT: I also didn't know this is press your luck! lol
I didn't either. Gloves are coming off.
>SFA, but the way you type just shows how much of an unintellectual you really are "jeez, why are so many people like this" Yes, we are smarter than you.
No you are not. If you were you wouldn't have a build downvoted to -8 with various people listing what is wrong with it. You wouldn't have made a monstrosity like that. You wouldn't be arguing about a 120mm being a bad choice. I wouldn't calling you out right now. You wouldn't be shifting the goal post. You wouldn't be making this the hill you die. Do you what a intellectual would do here? Admit to their mistakes and move on and/or ask how they can improve, not double down. Calling yourself smarter than u/Potato_Plays844 is a very bold claim that is false.
>Sure I admit that air cooling is better but a $75 AIO vs $20 HSF obviously not the one I picked I picked one that would fit in the case but the ml240l is much better than the gammax https://pangoly.com/en/compare/cpu-cooler/deepcool-gammaxx-gt-rgb-vs-cooler-master-masterliquid-ml240l-rgb
You did pick a $75 AIO and he showed that a $20 HSF out did it. The case supports up to 280mm AIO's. That is not a review or benchmark or really anything. All that does is compare the two cooler specifications.
It can be anything. If possible check that RAM modules sit in their slots firmly. Bad connection can cause troubles.
After that check BIOS settings. If it doesn't have an option to save all settings to disk or flashdrive, make a photo of every page in it. It will help you to undo anything if needed. Now resetting BIOS to default settings may help. It's always a good idea when you install new components like CPU, RAM etc.
Check BIOS again and set up everything you need there.
At this point it'd be a good idea to benchmark RAM modules. Better do it not in Windows though. Booting from USB drive with memtest86+ can help with this task. Wait untill all tests are finished. If there's no errors your RAM is not defective, it's stable at default settings.
Next go back to BIOS and find an option to enable XMP profile for the memory. It's important to make RAM running at effective speed. It may introduce instability or incompatibility. So be ready to undo this if something goes wrong. Now you can run memory benchmark again.
If RAM is stable in benchmark then boot into windows and test performance there. With any other benchmark, games, programs in your usual scenarios. If your system is still sluggish then try different XMP or manual RAM overclocking options in BIOS.
First, use the following link to build a bootable usb for windows OS.
You should wipe all of your drives using disk management and/or another bootable usb with DBAN (https://dban.org). I SAY and or because i dont believe you can wipe an SSD with DBAN.
After the wipe and fresh OS install, immediately grab any vital updates for Windows and drivers for your devices. Lastly I'd recommend heading over to ninite.com to save some time on program download and installation.
The NH-D15 is one of the best air coolers if not the best air cooler. You can go with a AIO liquid cooler like this one instead of a custom loop. If you want to keep your current cooler, you may want to try repasting the cpu or trying liquid metal.
If you plan to record video and do post production, you should look for SSDs with a very high TBW (Terabyte Written) rating: Those last longer when you write a lot of data onto them.
Reading a lot of data? That doesn't matter, any SSD will do.
I won't make recommendations but I will say this: I'm using Samsung, Sandisk, Crucial and Western Digital and I don't have problems with any of those drives. The Samsung drive is almost 10 years old and still works fine. The Sandisk one is uh, five years, the others are two years old. All still very fast and no error readings (You can read about the "health" of a drive using the software from the drive's manufacturer).
This one is a true classic. The MX Series by Crucial. 54 British Pound. That's alright, innit?
Definetly! There you go: https://www.amazon.com/TP-Link-Bluetooth-Wireless-Browsing-Streaming/dp/B084JPFKQ5/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?dchild=1&keywords=pcie+wifi+card&qid=1627110274&sr=8-8
If you have any more questions, just ask them!
This would likely let you play at 1440 at lower fps, or reduced resolution at high fps. Having an 11 year old monitor myself, you should consider whether your next pc will potentially be more powerful.
This monitor is my planned upgrade currently and has a lot of favorable reviews with a good price.
This would work amazing: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/Kj747X ($1395, without wireless wifi card)
2x8gb 3200mhz cl16 memory
512gb nvme m.2 ssd
Great airdlow case
So it would be a little bit over budget with a wifi card, I hope you wouldn't mind.
Wifi card ($20): https://www.amazon.com/FebSmart-Adapters-PCIe-Cards-PCIe-FS-N600-Basic/dp/B071NZ6DL9/ref=mp_s_a_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=wifi+card&qid=1626026053&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEyR1UwWDZVV1I1NU1TJmVuY3J5cHR...
I hope I helped you with this!
Yes, they can be synced inside the Msi Mystic Light software from Msi. It's inside the program called Msi Dragoncenter. The fans need to be plugged into the argb header (so not the rgb header) and then they will show up in the software just like the ram!
If the case doesn't come with a controller (but it should), get a splitter: https://www.amazon.ca/MICRO-CONNECTORS-3-Pin-Addressable-Splitter/dp/B07Z1338XY/ref=mp_s_a_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=argb+splitter&qid=1625329659&sprefix=argb+spli&sr=8-3
Alright cool, I made this list for you: https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/nyFpcT ($4389 cad)
It won't get better than this for gaming, you can drop down to a 6800xt or 3080 aswell. This is the most high end graphics card you can get right now. It also will look amazing. The list is white Corsair rgb themed. I'll list the specs here aswell:
Ryzen 7 5800x (8 core, 16 thread processor)
4x8gb 3600mhz cl18 white memory
240mm white aio
1tb nvme m.2 ssd
Corsair 4000x with 6 white argb fans
For the 850 watt powersupply, get these nice extension cables: https://www.amazon.ca/Antec-Supply-Sleeved-Extension-Length/dp/B07C6CLXW8/ref=mp_s_a_1_4?dchild=1&keywords=psu+white+extension&qid=1625072032&sr=8-4
If you drop down to a rx 6800xt graphics card, it'll be under 4000. I hope I helped you with this!
I’d probably go for it. Since you have an rx 570, I’d probably advise you look for a free sync monitor which basically helps with screen tearing at higher refresh ratesvs without using freesync.
This one on amazon is a very good deal.
You can get a 1650 super for less then 600 here it's about 460 so a little over your budget but if you save up for a little bit it's there
This one is also a decent option if you want something cheaper.. this one has the same specs, just the processor is cheaper..
Hey! I made you a list for your budget.
I7 10700k (8 core, 16 thread processor)
2x16gb 3200mhz cl16 memory (32gb will be perfect for streaming)
Case with tempered glass side panel
And the capture card ($90): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08J5MQ6D3?tag=pcpapi-20&linkCode=ogi&th=1&psc=1
Where are you based? For your needs you don’t NEED a better CPU, but it sounds like you can afford it. If yo want some suggestions let me know. Are you near a microcenter?
Ram is definitely cheaper if you buy two sticks. Here is a link: TEAMGROUP T-Force Vulcan Z DDR4 32GB Kit (2x16GB) 3600MHz (PC4-28800) CL18 Desktop Memory Module Ram TLZGD432G3600HC18JDC01 - Gray https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08MDZ9YFR/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_M4PCGGB8THK8G83DYV28?psc=1 this is actually better ram than you have here at a cheaper price!
Also for the case Phanteks is great bang for buck. I would suggest Phanteks Enthoo Pro Full Tower PH-ES614P. It’s about $100.
Otherwise I would argue this is pretty solid. Enjoy your build!
I did a little digging and the drive is SMR, from what I was reading SMR is much slower. I found this CMR HD instead:
What do you think about this for speed of read/write as well as safety of the data?
You might think about external depending on your needs. Amazon days are coming june 21st, 22nd. Most retailers will be competing for your money so you may be able to pick up a great deal then. https://www.amazon.com/Toshiba-HDTB420XK3AA-Canvio-Portable-External/dp/B079D3D8NR/ref=sr\_1\_4?crid=256EKC9KPYSJV&dchild=1&keywords=2+tb+external+hardrive&qid=1622715578&sprefix=2+tb+exter%2Caps%2C188&sr=8-4
Hmmm. What is the difference between that one and this LG 34GP83A-B 34 Inch 21: 9 UltraGear Curved QHD (3440 x 1440) 1ms Nano IPS Gaming Monitor with 144Hz and G-SYNC Compatibility - Black (34GP83A-B) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08DWD38VX/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_7M28R9E515HMSZXGDR55?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
So I see you’re in turkey so I checked some sites there. The best I could find was a gt 1030 for $114 usd on amazon tr. It’s not a terrible price considering the current shortage and your location. I would also recommend upgrading your ram to 8gb and getting a ssd instead of hdd if you can. https://www.amazon.com.tr/Asus-GT1030-2G-BRK-NVIDIA-GeForce-GT1030/dp/B0789CF1KM/
Most single fan 1650s don’t require external power. Asus is one of those brands that sort of tricks you, their dual fan models require external power but their single fan models dont.
I just came across this 1650 super: MSI Gaming GeForce GTX 1650 Super 128-Bit HDMI/DP/DVI 4GB GDRR6 HDCP Support DirectX 12 Single Fan VR Ready OC Graphics Card (GTX 1650 Super Aero ITX OC) (GeForce GTX 1650 Super AERO ITX OC) (Renewed) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08Z8M8WRF/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_YE9DWQEVSDEZFMAXD7ZM apparently despite the picture looking like it has external 6 pin power, it doesn’t.
Edit: sorry, that card does have external power

I don't have this exact version, but I have the dual fan black led version. But from benchmarks the cooling difference isn't much. Keeps my 2700x very cool.
Pc building is hard right now, I think a console would be fine if all you want to do is play Minecraft. You won’t have shaders but it will play it perfectly. Also you don’t need 800 dollars minimum to play minecraft, you can’t upgrade your laptop but you can get one for around 350 dollars that will play it .
Here is one specifically made for minecraft
And here is just one that will run minecraft but I’d recommend getting a stick of 4gb ram to put in it to make it have 8gb of ram, watch a tutorial on YouTube
The a pro b550 didn’t need it well mine didn’t I also had this same question MSI B550-A PRO ProSeries Motherboard (AMD AM4, DDR4, PCIe 4.0, SATA 6Gb/s, M.2, USB 3.2 Gen 2, HDMI/DP, ATX) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B089CZSQB4/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_MMN7EHK2ETA29Z67S0ME
This helped a lot bro thank u so much🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 I think ima end up going with this one what do you think?

Building a PC right now is hard because GPUs are insanely expensive, that's 'cause stock is low due to Covid and demand is extremely high...
I'd suggest getting this pre-built PC instead: https://www.amazon.com/CyberpowerPC-Xtreme-i5-10400F-GeForce-GXiVR8060A10/dp/B08FBK2DK5/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?dchild=1&keywords=Gaming+PC&qid=1613324584&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUEzS08ySUVMU1lDTTdZJmVuY3J5cHRlZElkPUEwNDE5Mjc1MUtST0ExOVpURjQ4TyZlbmNyeXB0ZWRBZElkPUEwMDIxNzMxTjFWSFVaVTIzQlpQJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfYXRmJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
You don't need a new motherboard. All you need are some fan splitters. Each fan header on a motherboard can support up to 4 fans. There are fans splitters like this 2 pack of 1-to-3 PWM splitters for less than $10 that would let you run all your fans. https://www.amazon.com/Splitter-Computer-Extension-Converter-TeamProfitcom/dp/B07F8LV1BY/
Very easy and quick to install yourself too.
Go to www.pcpartpicker.com You will get an idea there. this is the one I’m gonna build keep in mind that the price is without the core processor it’s a budget which is pretty good for a starting pc and if you just want to upgrade over time. Second link is the processor in getting
Was looking at this proccesor. is this ok? Again how would this handle a game like rocket league. Sorry for all the questions.
you can get a cheaper gtx 1050 ti
preferably this one: Amazon.com: Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 Ti OC 4GB GDDR5 128 Bit PCI-E Graphic Card (GV-N105TOC-4GD): Computers & Accessories
Welcome to the world of PC gaming!
Not a bad list at all, but here are some recommendations:
Just an FYI - the Scythe Mugen Recv B is normally around $48. It’s way overpriced at $78. If you wanted another cooler in the less than $50 range that is just as effective if not more, look at the Thermalright ARO-M14O.
Re-read your post, the PNY XLR8 CS3030 is very common and well priced in Europe:
The Corsair Force MP510, and Patriot VPN100 are also fairly common there.
The Fractal Design C has many variants, some are mATX which is too small, some are standard ATX which should work without too much difficulty.
You're welcome, best of luck on the build.
When connecting all 4 case fans, be sure to connect the 2 front intake fans to the motherboard and the 1 rear and 1 top rear fans to the PSU via molex. This way you have speed control of the 2 front intake fans from your BIOS. I'd personally not use the fan that comes with the case and hang on to it as a replacement fan but you could totally put it into the top rear of the case if you prefer to do so.
Oh and if you must have speed control of all 4 case fans, simply buy this $5.38 splitter. It's totally not necessary but some people like to have speed control of all case fans.
Hello! I have a lot of questions. Thanks for your help :)
I changed/added the r7 CPU, MSI motherboard, Memory, adata storage, and rosewill PSU.
For the monitor, it seems like this one is the only one I can find available at a reasonable time and price that is similar to the one you suggested. Is this a good substitute? I don't know much about monitors at all, so I appreciate the suggestion.
As for the motherboard, it seems like the MSI one doesn't include wifi. Is there something separate I need in order to connect my home wifi to the pc?
Also, for the Rosewill case- is it a hassle to have different programs/brands when it comes to managing RBG? I originally planned for an asus/corsair build so I could have it all on the same program.
Lastly, I picked up the 3060 ti TUF already. It's the only piece I have purchased and planned the rest of my build around it.
Overclock if basically means getting more performance out of the system, like tuning for a car’s engine. I wouldn’t recommend it for first time builders.
The wraith prism comes with the 3700x so you don’t need to buy anything else.
The reason I said don’t get the one in video is because it is not priced well. You don’t see much of an improvement over the one that is included with the 3700x.

This is probably your best option right now very similar performance for cheaper.

Also for the monitor I would say either go for Alienware 25 Gaming Monitor - AW2518Hf, Full HD @ Native 240 Hz, 16: 9, 1ms response time, DP, HDMI 2.0A, USB 3.0, AMD Freesync, Tilt, Swivel, Height-Adjustable https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0733YCKM5/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_fabc_czkTFb34E3QPM

That’s why I left 50 extra dollars so you can put that into a monitor that is around 400 which can run at 240hz :)
Ok here’s a list that I did it’s right under 700 but here’s a case from amazon that is small and fits everything inside of the case it’s small a nice
Here’s the list
Hope you like it :)
The motherboard has to be inverted because of the way it's designed...
But rotating the motherboard does not, in any way, impede airflow.
SolidWorks, correct me if I'm wrong, is fairly CPU heavy I believe, so you'll want a powerful CPU -- the i7-6700K is the best in the enthusiast grade stuff. This build combines it with an R9 380 graphics card, and a high-quality PSU. I'd modify the build slightly -- swap out the ASUS motherboard for the cheaper Micro ATX gigabyte board https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0165YUDTM, which will fit with the case.
Then, if you want more disk space, that gives you room to upgrade to the 480GB SSD if you wish. Windows is $85 on Amazon currently, so this build would put you around $1025. A solid build that will edit very well and handle most games on medium to high at 1080p. If you want more gaming pop, consider the RX 480 when it's back in stock.
The merchant link on pcpartpicker for their 3770K is broken for some reason. It's available on Amazon for 360 pounds new or 250 pounds used right now. This is the best Windows Xp Intel quad. It's also fairly safe to hunt for a deal on one at Ebay, Ivy Bridge CPUs are very durable.
Acer's Version of Prebuilt Gaming PC
1070 Version on Amazon
Get the EVGA GQ instead, it's better than the NEX and costs the same. I think the 750W version is 79.99 if you have Amazon Prime.
With a video card that powerful, may as well get a 144+Hz monitor. The guys over at /r/monitors will be able to help a bit more, but for starters, this will be an expensive, but fantastic, monitor for you.
EDIT: put an Amazon link to the monitor
This is a really good build for the budget. Only thing I would change is the RAM as 2x 4GB leaves no space to upgrade to 16GB which might become more necessary soon (and can be for some games like Civilization VI or the Wii U 'Cemu' emulator at times already). Amazon.de have a great price going though for an 8GB stick of 2666mhz RAM for €55, might be best to even pick both up now at that kind of price.
Also a suggestion for the case is the Sugo SG13 if you want to go as small as possible. It's the case I use for mine and is excellent; only 7" tall and the exact same dimensions as an A4 sheet of paper. I can't find it in Germany but Amazon UK do it for £40 (€45) - most items from Amazon DE to Ireland cost about €6-8 delivery so I am sure Amazon UK will do something similar to Germany. https://www.amazon.co.uk/SilverStone-SST-SG13B-Q-Sugo-Mini-black/dp/B00T85E9U0/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1501580212&sr=8-2&keywords=sg13
I used amazon Deutschland since I don't know where you're ordering from
The mobo is an msi pro carbon mini itx which is a great z270 mobo for your 7700k. The case has a nice side panel and tons of cable management room for a mitx case. Fortunately for you the 1080 you have only has 2 fans which is great for a small build. Everything else is compatible as well although if you don't want too much of a hassle installing the psu I'd go fully modular. Your psu also works as well.
The case doesn't have any slots for internal optical drives, so getting an external one like this one would be your best bet.
Windows 10 can be purchased from Amazon and installed via USB drive, btw. I personally like using that option better than the CD.
Amazon has an Asus version for$365,
ASUS GeForce 6GB Dual-Fan OC Edition VR Ready Dual HDMI DP 1.4 Gaming Graphics Card DUAL-GTX1060-O6G https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B01JHQT1SE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_EgrTzb8WF1TKD
Or this from New egg at $350. https://m.newegg.ca/products/N82E16814125879
After shipping, they're both about the same price. How do I decide between the two or does it matter?
