looks good to me, if you already have an HDD then just get the SSD in the buid and use the one you already have, no point in switching over everything to another drive when it's already on the first one,

I GTG for the night, pretty late over here and i'm at 7% battery on my laptop. Message me and i will respond in the morning, I hope your build goes well.

The CPU cooler looks like a Hyper 212EVO with 2 corsair LL fans with RGB on white.

EDIT NVM it has 2 Heatsinks. Maybe the Noctua NH-D15? With the same fans?

The 1700 which is better for streaming is about the same for gaming, but you give up the readability of the B450 and X470 mobo's since they have to use B350 and X370.

Gigabyte is more known for making good motherboards, but this GPU is pretty good. If you really want to be sure, spend a little more and get the EVGA Black, It's the best you'll get for it's cheap price. Also, dont forget you can Overclock stuff, so dont spend more for a higher clock, you can do it yourself. The Cooler you have will support that CPU at 4.4 or 4,5 GHZ with idles of around 30-35 Degrees C, which is hot, but not too-too hot, especially when OC'ing. The In Game temps will probably go to low 80s or 70s.

I dont see the case for MATX.

Oh the 1000D has 2 cases inside one, oh

Im poor lol :PPPPPP

Looks really nice, though it would be a pain to fit a custom loop into the second part of the 100D.

This has a case more to my liking and better RGB on the RAM,

If you want to go cheaper, and are just gaming, 16 Gb of ram is perfect and 32 GB is useless.

https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-8086K-vs-Intel-Core-i7-9700K/m516988vs4030

They are about the same, though that's because the 8086K is already pre clocked to 4.0 GHZ, with a nice cooler getting to 4.5 or higher with the 9700K should be pretty easy. Plus the 9700K cheaper.

The 8086 I think comes with slower ram too, so that's something else to take into consideration.

No Never EVER get 8gb ram in this day and age

Nowadays my 8b PC is getting 30-40% used with nothing that wasn't important open.

When i upgraded old PC from 8 to 16 it jumped 10-20 FPS higer adn only ~15% was used on the home screen

wow 10TB? Geez that's alot...

Anyways, I get what you are saying about panda theme, but if you got the Fractal design, it has a much sleeker polygonal type mesh front for that difference and it is still white.

This, IMO, is the best case EVER: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/xBVD4D/fractal-design-meshify-s2-white-tg-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-mesh-s2-wt-tgc

I love the case, it's beautiful, but he wanted the other case because it was small and portable.

Also, if you get the CPU at that price, why not get the 9900K?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First Time Build"

Beautiful, my only complaints are

1: The ram doesnt need to be that fast, that's maybe a .005 second difference over 3200 ram and it's much more expensive.

2: You will need much more storage to hold anything worth having these days, The OS, Destiny 2, And Red Dead Redemption two alone will fill that HDD, an extra 2TB should be enough.

3: For a white case, I prefer the H700, it is much sleeker and doesn't have the ugly black part in the front as the Enthoo has.

The fractal design R6 white TG USB-C is also pretty good.

Nice Intel build, it is pretty good, though getting an 9600K 9th gen is cheaper and has just 3% less performance, the 9700K is only around 50$ more expensive adn has quite a bit better gaming performance, and after an OC it will run very well at 1440P

Keep the 2080, 144hz at 1440p is hard, but at the right settings the 2080 will be enough to get you there,

looks good, but the extra money for the 2g's extra vram on the 1070 IMO would be a good choice because it allows for more bandwidth for the higher res while gaming and editing.

true,

that was just my way of thinking, though IMO 8K dollars just for 8K gaming is a little much, he has to have something else he does for his job for it to be worth that.

true, but i though the bandwidth of so many cores would help with FPS

If you get a custom loop or really nice cooler, OC'ing a little shouldn't be too hard.

It's a 6fps loss over SLI titan, for around 2.5k Cheaper,

I saved money by going with a weird 4 monitor setup, but It may still be too much for the GPU's

If you just want something to game on, why not get an external GPU? you can get a razer core X for 2-300 and a 2060 which will actually run RL at 1440p or even 4k.

With this build, the best you are going to do with games is 1080p at medium-high settings, depending on what you are playing.

This may or may not be a better use of the budget, you choose.

For 144hz 1080p the 2060 would be fine, but at high settings on some games probably wont get the 144hz mark.

For that the 2070 is very good.
