the 3400G would probably be better. For handbrake getting a medium ground between cores and speed is best, So i'd go for a 6 core like the 2600X or 3600

Hello! SO i've put together a little list for you, and also have a few pointers.

1:If you want large amounts of storage, get more separate smaller drives, it helps with clutter since not everything will be on one drive. 2: I really recommend getting a Dedicated GPU, it will give you better color accuracy than the onboard, as ell as better performance on photoshop/lightroom (this is optional, no forcing) 3: The monitor here is a widescreen monitor, so he will have more screen real estate. It might seem like overkill, but he will love being able to have more than 1 thing open at a time and still be able to see them.

It would be more than enough for this build, though it is a very inneficient PSU, getting a new one would probably be better.

You also want faster RAM for the Ryzen Series, 3000-3200 MHz probably.

And more stroage, for anything, as storage is a pain nowadays since everything is like 100 GB

That's actually really great for Adobe, I have the CC subscription, and It's a Pain to store everything on one drive, so the spread is great.

A couple suggestions, Getting a 3900X from AMD will give you more cores. Then I'd get some faster ram (3200MHz) And a larger PSU, because you are running some high end hardware here, I recommend 650W for you maybe 750 if you really get into OC'ing

To be honest, you have to plug in the chargers anyways (which is a Cable), so why not just go with the Glorious Model O? It has a really light cable, so It will feel like a Wireless, and you can also get a mouse bungee which helps to unclutter your desk.

EDIT: If your willing to spend the money on the LEADR, why not get the Logitech G-Pro Wireless?

Than maybe it's a motherboard problem, since the BIOS is connected to the motherboard?

If you are getting a post at all, that's good, but not getting into BIOS sounds like either

1) Your CPU is shot 2)Motherboard is having Problems 3) Your RAM's having trouble and is running slowly

I don't think it's the GPU, but you said it freezes, so maybe?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need help please"

Well, the CPU he had is better and is overclockable (bonus with that AIO) ;P

In my mind, Corsair ram is, like, second best behind G.Skill, so they may be the same, but I would always go for Corsair over Team, they have a reputation for good RAM modules.

I never said that Z390 are future proof, intel sees to that nicely (though the B450 and X470 boards will be backwards compatible with the new ryzens)

Also, I have no freaking Idea what the heck phases are on the motherboard xD. I'd think though that more phases is better, but maybe less= less to go through = faster?? I go for higher watt CPU's in case it's needed so you aren't scraping with your OC'ed 9900K and dual 2080Ti's using 530 watts of your 550 Watt power supply.

And also, (and i will stand by this) EVGA is a VERY good brand that produces very high quality PC components. I say this because me and my dad got a new EVGA 750 watt GQ PSU and it runs like a BEAST :)

this looks nice, but you have to take into consideration: That CPU cooler is really expensive, does the OP really need RGB? and also he probably used an external HDD for a reason, probably for easy transport, I'd keep that on there so he doesn't get confused and buys the wrong hard drive.

Also, that SSD brand is not as good as crucial, Samsung, or WD. Corsair is NOT a dedicated Storage Company, and it not their strong suit either.

The PRO has better performance than the EVO slightly.

I'd go for a Crucial P1 NVME SSD for only around 120 USD for 1TB. very good budget SSD.

Corsair I don't really know about, but WD and samsung have MUCH better reputations as Hard Drive builders than corsair, and I'd go with WD/Samsung over Corsair for hard drives anyday.

You want a SSD ASAP

You want a cheaper case as well, so a H500 from NZXT would serve you well, and the H500i version has built in RGB you may want to look at :).

For RGB in that case you can just get some strips and cut them to the size you want and put them around your build how you like them

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Powerful PC Build"

Hmmm. I really dont understand what the heck you are doing coming into this forum, saying your build is the best than not doing half the stuff the OP wants.

Here's a list of what you are doing wrong. Take this with a grain of salt as it will help you in the future :)

  1. You are getting only 32 GB of ram when 64 would be better for Rendering and Workstation products
  2. You are spending $500 dollars on only 500gb of storage that is meant to speed boost slow hard drives when you could spend that on 3tb of NVME high speed storage like the Crucial P1 and have some left over.
  3. Anyone can come in with a build and say it's the best, and technically speaking, other than the storage and memory, the specs ARE the best, but even though the OP said "no budget" He will still want to save money , and putting in 2 of the most expensive GPU's ever that will only offer a 5-10% performance increase is useless, not even noting that he wanted 4k in high framerates, and even though you have a 240 hz monitor here, I dont see 4k, so taking those GPU's down to 1 maybe 2 GPUs, and nothing above 2080Ti's, i'm sure if you ask the OP (and i may be wrong) He would rather save 2500$ than get maybe 10 or 15 FPS more on a game. the PSU is a little overkill, but is good for the price. For storage I'd get rid of the optane and go with pure SSD and a large HDD for backup.

This is what I made for 4000$ cheaper, and if OP wants, it can be upgraded with another GPU, more monitors, more RAM, and that Drawing pad he wanted.

You always want to cater to the price, and unless you yourself are willing to spend an extra 2.5K for a 10% performance increase, why suggest it to someone else?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Powerful PC Build"

this build is SUCH a waste of money. spending an extra 150 dollars for only 800mhz of Ram speed is NOT worth it at all, and since only a few games take advantage of Nvlink, that's another $1200 down the drain. The mouse coul be better for the budget, and the keyboard i would change to a Ducky, Vortex, Or Steelseries keyboard.

The ASUS ROG 144hz 4k monitor is VERY good, I'd sped the 1200 dollars on one of those, and then keep the other 2 dell ones. Why are you spending 600 dollars on individual 1TB slow SATA drives? Get a NVME storage, the Crucial P1 or HP 920's are good and less expensive per GB. You don't ever need that PSU unless you are running A corsair 1000D maxed with RGB fans, with the I9-9980XE on a ROG Rampage. Max you need for this is a 1000W or 850 Gold for much cheaper than what you have now.

You also don't need a 14 TB drive. Get a 6TB for cheaper, it won't fill up anytime soon since you have 4Tb of ssd's

Remember to always try to get the best performance you can for as little money as you can. You can still get all teh RGB in this build for much cheaper.

OP would like this build better (IMO) Because of reasons stated above:

good use of the budget and adding in the MAtx case for the MOBO, many people just leave out the case, and te small motherboards look out of place in the large ATX cases. One thing i would do is trying to use that extra GPu budget to try to get a better brand, preferably XFX or Sapphire, as powercolor does not have as good of reviews or performance compared to them. I personally recommend sapphire if you can find one for that price.

I saw the build you had posted in your profile, and it was good except for a few things:

That ram isn't very good, you want to get ram from a brand like HyperX, Corsair, or G.Skill, so I got you 16Gb of cheap corsair ram, ok for your needs.

you spent too much on your HDD, SSD and GPU. I'd just save the money by going with a cheaper 2tb drive,a cheaper 500gb SSD, and a 1660ti, which although is definitely not as good as the 64 for gaming, will have better support with most softwares like Adobe/Avid, etc, and will make your job much easier.

Alternatively, you can get rid of the cooler i added and put in an extra 16GB ram, which would be better for video editing and film production stuff like that.

Also, you have to look at all parts of what the OP wants. If they want Gmaing and Streaming, you want to prioritise GPU and CPU above anything else. In your build above, you spend too much on useless RGB RAM, when you can get the same speed for 60$ cheaper, you spend too much on the motherboard, you don't need a ridiculous motherboard, and that 250$ is a little much for this type of budget in CAD dollars.

If you look at my build below, I went for more functionality than RGB or looks. It has a nice case which is 70$ cheaper than yours, has a 130$ cheaper keyboard, (You really dont need to spend so much on a keyboard for this budget) and a better CPU, GPU, and Mouse. It also has a better PSU as well. You have to learn how to manage your budget for more functionality than anything.

I'm pretty experienced when it comes to this type of stuff, so I know alot about how it works. What the OP wants/needs comes before anything extra. If you have the extra budget room to fit insome cool stuff, great, go for it, but in this instance, we want to keep it on the lower side and not overspend for RGB and pretty cases/peripherals.

This is all constructive feedback, so take it with a grain of salt (or two :P) and just keep building computers.

Again, constructive feedback, not trying to make you feel stupid, just trying to tell you how to get the most out of your budget and how to do this well.

Have a good Day/Night!

Well depends on the game.

He says streaming, so going for a better CPU for 150 dollars more would be better for his/her purposes.

I like this build over Raptors only because of the SSD, it is a brand i recognize, while Inland i have no idea about.

I'd go for this one over raptors, but just my somewhat knowledgeable opinion. :)

Why get 2 headphones when you could get a Pair that listens to music just as well as games?

And also, why get garbagey speakers if you're just going to use headphones for music?

Also, Follow Case5549's advice below

Also, the bump to the 580 would be of much better value (30$ for 130% performance) https://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-RX-580-vs-AMD-RX-560/3923vs3926

the bump to the 1700 would be good for your type of work, but it's up to you to spend the extra 100$
