Hello everybody I’m new to building PCs and wanted to start building one for my very first time. I was wondering if anybody would give me feedback on the parts I have chosen.

The main use of the computer would be just gaming mainly and regular surfing of the web no streaming or any of the sorts at the moment.

You use it for just gaming as well?

You would switch the processor with a Ryzen 7 3700X or Ryzen 3800X, if you were VR gaming, streaming, video editing, rendering, etc., and go with 32 GB of ram.

More CPU cores and higher clock rate is better, you could also up the ram speed to 3600.

The air CPU cooler is a good one and will last for years, if it gets louder, just put new fans on it.

What exactly is overclocking? What I’ve gotten from it is to get better frame rates. Is there anything else?

  • 29 days ago
  • 1 point

In computing, overclocking is the practice of increasing the clock rate of a computer to exceed that certified by the manufacturer. Commonly operating voltage is also increased to maintain a component's operational stability at accelerated speeds.

I saw you added an ssd and the barracuda internal hard drive why is that? Is the ssd card not enough?

  • 29 days ago
  • 1 point

SSD - Benefits. Solid state drives deliver faster load times for games, applications, and movies.

HDD is considerably cheaper than SSD, especially for drives over 1 TB. The SSD has no moving parts. It uses flash memory to store data, which provides better performance and reliability over an HDD. The HDD has moving parts and magnetic platters, meaning the more use they get, the faster they wear down and fail.

Thank you for your replies I appreciate it I also wanted to know and make sure that none of the parts I’m getting are really overkill for the build.

Also, do you think getting the Ryzen 3500x like you chose on the build you put out would be enough for Vr Gaming later on down the road? Or would I have to upgrade later on.

When you say go with 32 gb of ram you’re talking about the memory sticks that go on the motherboard right? I plan on getting 2 8gb sticks now and upgrade or just keeping an eye out on what deals there is as I buy the parts. But forsure upgrading the memory sticks once there is the funds of course.

32 GB of (Ram) Random-access memory. Is for more memory intensive programs, such as, graphics design, rendering, video editing.

16 GB will be fine for gaming. But, who knows what the future will bring.

Your build is good, just change the odd component in certain places that can give you a large improvement in performance e.g. 3600 MHz RAM the Ryzen 5 3600 instead of the 2600X and the RTX 2060 Super instead of the RTX 2060 and you can get a 30+% boost in performance. Whilst saving yourself money on the power supply & SSD etc..

Thank you for commenting I appreciate it I really like the second build you out. Is there any motherboard that you recommend that includes wifi?

  • 29 days ago

Both mobos in his build already have wifi.

Test19 is correct the Taichi comes with build in WiFi, this isn't one of the cheapest, it's one of the higher end boards but you are getting quality for your money. If you wanted a cheaper recommendation then perhaps another ASRock board:

Oh no thank you I totally mislooked that. I like both builds nonetheless. I was wondering if you could give me a bit of education on the radiator cooler.. does it already come with water or do we have to put water into it how does that work?

  • 28 days ago
  • 1 point

OK, when it comes to using liquid & radiator cooling in a build this is usually broken down into two segments. First off, you have what's called "open loop" cooling. This involves buying either your own radiators and hard/soft tubing & fittings and creating your own custom cooling loop or doing the same thing just with buying a kit with all the pieces included, this is all open loop cooling and called such because your loop is open and you fill it with coolant, (usually distilled water and some form of colourant).

What I have included in your build falls under the second segment, this is called "closed loop" cooling. This requires what are known as AIO (all-in-one) coolers. This is called closed loop because you get your AIO already sealed and filled with coolant and it remains permanently closed. AIO coolers require less maintenance because you never have to change the coolant, they are also cheaper than buying all the parts required for a custom open loop.

Would you say the taichi is better than the MSI ?

  • 28 days ago
  • 1 point

I'm perhaps a little biased to answer this question, given that the Taichi is my personal favourite X570 motherboard. However, trying to take an objective stance, I would still say it is better than any of the MSI boards right upto the Godlike. Realistically the Godlike probably is better, but then given how much it costs it pretty much should be, but I don't think any of the other MSI boards are, even ones which cost more than the Taichi.
