Hi, can you tell us a little more about your editting requirements. I ask because you can get much more performance gaming for your money with an RX 5700 XT rather than RTX 2060 Super. The Nvidia card however has much better driver level video encoding.

Example build with Rx 5700 xt.

If you want a system you do not need to touch for 5+ years then maybe something like this will work out, i.e. includes higher tier GPU for longevity at 1080p, obviously once we have a better feel for Ryzen 3xxx desktop CPUs once 3rd party reviews are out.

The MSI Gaming Pro Carbon has a bios flashback button, which means you do not need a CPU to flash the bios, instead can do it with a USB stick. So if the board doesn't have the latest Bios you can update it without significant fuss. Many of the MSI B450 boards have this feature, e.g. Tomahawk and Mortar...

However, I strongly recommend waiting for reviews, only a few weeks to wait.

Out of interest how soon do you want to build? I ask because Ryzen 2 are released on 7/7 and a 3600 or 3600x with decent b450 motherboard like an MSI tomahawk or Mortar might be the match you are after, paired with a capable GPU.

If you can wait until the 7/7/19 for third party benchmarks then do. At present the i9 is probably the best gaming/simultaneous streaming CPU. But teases to date from AMD look compelling, but we need those benchmarks.

Hi there, to help with part selection any chance you can confirm the resolution of your monitor and FPS target. Also, is there a reason for the 32gb ram requirement? 16gb is a very decent amount for a pure gaming machine, hence question. Finally when do you plan to build? Ryzen 3xxx CPUs have just been announced to be released 7/7/19, predictions are that they will be as fast as the intel counterparts and cheaper. However better to wait for benchmarks.

Hi, it is not a bad build and remember you are paying extra for their service and trouble free warranty. If I was to build for < $899 I would do something like this for more balance, the CPU is weaker but still good for 1080p gaming. But more RAM, better GPU and rounded parts.

Hi, depends on how much you value a decent overclocking motherboard. Also, is the i7 a loccked 7700 or a 7700k?

If a non k, then to be honest you'll get similar performance (plus more RAM) buying new as below:

Couple of items, one I forgot to mention, the next generation of AMD Ryzen should be announced next week, so worth waiting to hear how it stacks up. Though CPUs may not be on the shelves immediately. Secondly, I would go for the cheaper of the RTX 2070 vs GTX 1080, they are pretty equivalent performance wise, but the RTX 2070 is newer and likely to have longer term support.

Then how does this look? If you never upgraded to win 10, you'll need a new license for win 10 as modern platforms don't officially support win 7/8.

True, forgot to ask the question why in my haste to do something else. Though might be more prudent to ask OP why if you feel it is necessary.

So I can ask now, OP why do you need Win Pro vs Home edition. You will pay 20% of the build cost (£100 more than Home) on an OS whose features really do not offer much more, maybe remote access.

Can I suggest a better cooler and case. That cooler is weaker than cheaper tower air coolers, and the i9 can get hot. Also, for those power hungry components good ventilation is key and my experience with the closed front NZXT cases is not great when trying to dissipate heat generated by components. At best fans really ramp up to keep components cool making the system noisey, at worst you'll get thermal throttling. It also doesn't have an option for a 5.25" Blu-ray drive so something else to consider.

I would maybe do something like this but stretches budget.

You can really go overkill here if you want to max budget by reusing your existing GPU. I pulled an overkill build together below. I would however wait 1 month if you can to see what AMD brings to the table with its next generation Zen CPUs, which at the very least are going to support pcie 4, so better future proofing. They also maybe cheaper, as fast or faster than current intel CPUs. There is also the whole fuss with the recent intel security exploits to keep tabs on.

To be honest, you are going to compromise other areas of the build if a GPU is needed in your budget, even if you sell you won't get enough to really bring you up a tieror two. So I would stick with it for now and upgrade when money allows. You should look to a card at and above $225 such as a gtx 1660 to see a decent uplift.

Researching online it appears your bottle necks in order are going to be ram amount then storage speed then CPU speed and then number of cores....

This build provides a rounded foundation on those fronts (ram may not achieve rated speeds on AM4 platform, but still it is size that matters more here). Use the NVME drive for current project files and SATA SSD for storage, operating system and applications.

Chose an ultra wide monitor, with excellent colour accuracy, reduces cost of two displays, and in windowed mode can run two apps or more side by side etc. Also, has decent integrated speakers.

Hi, can I ask what speed and size (GB) of ram you have. Also, what monitor and FPS are you looking to achieve? Are there any specialist applications you'll use for homework and finally what processor are you upgrading from (to ensure you see a nice jump).

Guess this is why I asked earlier question regarding interfaces and maybe I should have rechecked. If you have an external usb DAC (which to be honest is better than a PCI sound card since it removes possibility of pc hardware interference) then this will offer superior sound quality compared to the integrated sound from the motherboard. If this is the interface you are talking about then great. But if you are taking sound from the motherboard, see how you like the feed from the digital output on the taichi then if not suited you could invest in an external DAC.

I suggest you drop the RGB extra fans and go with a case with them integrated. The H500 has two 200mm quiet running RGB fans, and space for a 240mm radiator up top. I would not venture too much into the overclocking department due to instability which could interfere with video and audio work. This then frees up money to be better spent elsewhere.

I suggest a matched set of ram, for stability and reaching rated speeds. Chose a class leading low latency motherboard to reduce interference with audio work. Fast NVME drive for operating system, software and current project/s. Large HDD for storage. If budget allows you could add a second 2.5" fast 1TB SSD in addition to the high volume mechanical hard drive storage for storage of effects, audio files, video clips and any games you commonly use.

Finally, look into the home, single user, free versions of AVG and AVAST virus solutions. A quick google of best free anti virus software will give you an idea of what is and is not covered.

This then should be a very sound (no pun intended) platform. Motherboard selected for class leading low dpc latency (reduce lag in audio calls) low latency/cas ram (within cost/performance), well sound insulated case, fast CPU with room to upgrade, quiet CPU cooler with plenty of thermal overhead to prevent fans spinning at high rpm, robust and quiet HDD with good cache amount and speed, then fast nvme SSD for operating system, software and current project/s.

I used a number of articles to support the system design, many suggest anything above 32GB is overkill. Have you experienced production issues below 64GB which warrants the extra? Either way, budget left for more ram, or ram slots available for additional sticks if you are limited.

https://support.image-line.com/action/knowledgebase?ans=214

Chose full Windows license to allow trouble free upgrades or complete system changes without having to acquire new.

Hi, before I proceed with a build suggestion, would you be able to confirm the interface connectors for the optical drives and HDD's you have lying around. I believe your optical drives will have an IDE interface which has been replaced by the faster SATA interfaces on modern motherboards. IDE to SATA adaptors exist for ~$15 a pop. Secondly, do you know the model of your case so can check size suited to components selected.

Looks good, though offered alternative NVME drive, a little more expensive, but faster and significantly higher level of endurance. Went with latest Corsair Rmx PSU, 750w is more than enough. Switched to an asetek based 360mm aio, for better durability, plus comes RGB ready so save on extra fans. Finally, switched for a keyboard I prefer for quality and features.

Finally dropped to a home copy of Windows. Unless you have a good reason for the pro edition.

All in comes under $200 less but equivalent or better performance. PCPartPicker Part List

If gaming at 1080p with high FPS, then video work and maybe streaming then this is an alternative. 1080p high FPS gaming is core speed sensitive, so higher IPC, decent latency and turbo speed is warranted, same for video editting. If you can warrant $50 more...

Also, tbh a Vega 64 is not warranted for 1080p. And unless you already have an SSD, I would recommend one from the off, to significantly improve system responsiveness.

How does this look? Very strong gaming CPU and GPU which offers very decent 1080p performance. Some budget left for peripherals (e.g. mouse and keyboard). I would recommend a Windows license to assure security updates if online gaming and meet Microsoft T&C's. If you do need any extras then I can change items to accommodate.

Hej, to help optimise a system for you could you help by answering the following questions.

Do you need any peripherals, monitor and operating system?

If you have a monitor could you share spec and what FPS and desired graphical settings for gaming?

Hi, any chance you can provide more details on the following to help hone a system suited to your current set up and ensure we don't make part choices which will either be under or overpowered (wasted spend).

What spec monitor so you have, and what FPS and desired graphical settings do you desire for gaming?

Also, which video editting software and rendering engines will you use.

Finally what size of video files e.g. is it 1080p or 4k as this will make a difference to memory requirement 16-32 GB or need for a fast scratch NVME drive.

Single core performance of the CPU is very important for video editting, hence intel i7. Also, added 32gb ram and decent 8gb GPU along with 6TB of storage and 500GB fast SSD drive for software and current project. Anyhow see what you think.

I am not convinced the options presented will offer a significant upgrade for the money spent CPU/motherboard/ram wise. The i7 4790k is still relevant today. Games are only starting to become optimised for multiple threads. Really depends on you main games and whether you have maximised the potential of your current set up via an overclock of ram and CPU. You can take a stepwise approach and get a new GPU, such as an RTX 2070 then upgrade the rest of the platform over time. Also, if not already using, an SSD will dramatically improve responsiveness of system.
