No worries. Gona buy a beefy air cooler from noctua though. Since he has no clue about PCs and wants to keep the PC for a long time I think air cooling will be good. Just need one of those huge air coolers. Gona keep it on stock speeds though.
Which SSD price of mine are you talking about?
With a good Internet connection then you'll be fine. Depends what you want to stream. If you stream games from the PC you won't need a capture card.
Not really... If you wanna save some bucks then the stock cooler will do. You can't really OC the Chip with it tho..
Bitwit made a good how to guide.
Eh. If you are on a budget the 2600X will cut it. But yeah if you have the money lying around the r7 would technically be better...
The 2600X already comes pre overclocked from the factory. If you want you can get the cheaper 2600 and overclock that one to match the 2600X. If you want to OC woth the 2600 I suggest you keep the cooler of this list since the one of the 2600 doesnt really cut overclocks. I suggest to look up guides on youtube on how to overclock.
Nope.. NVME SSDs are more expensive and to be honest the performance difference is not really noticable anyway under normal circumstances..
Ehm no... Basically all modern Monitors use DisplayPort for 144Hz or even 240Hz.
Yeah it sucks because they look really good.. I had a 6 pack and after like 6 months 3 of them started to make a bad noise. I bough Noctua chromax fans now though...
Agreed.. they are soooo good looking... I was pretty disappointed when 3 of them broke...
Well the 1660 Ti is a good card too ;)
Nice build. But you would get some extra fps with faster memory. I think If you are ready to upgrade a 2x8GB 3000 Mhz kit would make sense
How are the fans working out? Did they start to make an annoying grinding noise?
Nice build. But trust me.. If those are Enermax tb rgb fans.. Those suck ***. I bought a six pack and after 6 months they started to make a rattling noise. I am not the only one with this problem.. Shame... they look so good though..
The second 4+4 pin is for overclocking. hardcore overclocking at that.. But yeah.. A single 4+4 pin is enough to power it even with an overclock..
I really do hope you upgrade soon...
How are the temps on the CPU? I have a friend who wants me to build him a system with the 9820X.
This would be a perfect build for your needs. And yeah, building it yourself will save you the hassle with bloatware. Just look out that sometimes the driver CDs that come with the hardware have some bloatware on it.. But you can simply opt out of installing it.
If you are looking into a budget workstation I would rather opt for a Ryzen 5 2600. It has SMT and 2 more cores. It is a much better CPU for heavier workloads.
Well depends at what Resolution. I suggest you look up some benchmarks on youtube. Something like "Rx 570 Apex 1080p benchmarks". You probably want to set the settings to high/medium to get the most fps out of it. I think in fps gamesfps > graphics. But yeah... the RX 570 should hold up quite good in apex
Thanks for the answer!
Yeah something like a 2600 would be nice.. And personally I would go for air cooling..
Well my parents already have a nas they want to set up. But since their old computer with a i7 2600 is gona be "useless" soon I just might clean that one up and use the old one as a plex server. Less complicated, no? Although this would mean 2 PCs standing around. On top of that I'll let my dad do the rest I think since from here on he knows what to do. He is quite experienced with software and everything. He just didn't know how to build a PC. I think he already has a couple of ideas what he wants to with the PC
That is a nice build :D What is that second expansion card for?
The forums on here and r/buildapc on reddit. What issues are you having?
Yeah.. You'll be completely fine. I mean they are both Storage devices.. Just the technology behind it is different. It would be stupid if they wouldn't work in a system together. For example if you have a server running UNRAID you usually use HDD for the mass storage and also have a couple of SSDs as cache drives to compensate for the lower write speeds. All they way up to server grade they combine SSDs and HDDs in a system to get the huge storage potential of HDDs and the speed of SSDs.
Then I must be doing something wrong.. I barely get 250fps with my 1080 Ti..
Yep! It would run those games perfectly. I would look at a 1080p/ 144Hz/ Low response time monitor with Freesync. And yeah.. I think you could hook up your TV to this PC
Performance would be lower. Check benchmarks on youtube
Nah.. Just make sure the Motherboard has all the settings you want and get whatever you feel has great value. The asus one has for sure more features but you need to balance Features and price. Just get the one that has the feature you want and is in your price range. For M.2: there are two types of SSDS: Regular Sata SSDs in the m.2 form factor and super fast NVME SSDs in the M.2 form factor. For regular gaming and everyday use NVME is overkill and not needed (and expensive). A sata one will be just fine.
Usually 400w PSUs have bad quality.. Why cheap out on the PSU? you can re use the PSU in your next build of you buy a good one in the first place
Nope.. you would still need an adapter
check benchmarks on youtube
Ultra. You can run csgo on a damn toaster
Those bottleneck sites are absolute cr*p. The r5 2600 and the rx 580 make a great fit.
I think the card would handle it. Ya don't need an adapter. The video cards has enough ports on the back
Well depends what you are playing and what your budget is.
Im using 2 SSDs and a HDD in my rig no problem.. so noo
Yep! Will run those games great
Check benchmarks on youtube
Yep this would be a perfect mid range build for that :D
NVME is expensive
the image is the other way round and no. THe r5 2600 is perfect for the rx 580. What site did you get that info from? Because they are interpreting bottlenecking wrong..
This would run those game really smoothly at ultra settings 60+fps at 1080p.
Build guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IhX0fOUYd8Q&t=2s
It would handle it quite well since the r5 is a six core.
I would get the AMD build if you want upgradeability.
Well there you ******* have it. there are other builds for higher budgets
Yes.. you would still need to buy an OS like windows 10. That will cost you an additional 100$. And an ethernet connection is on the motherboard. If you want a wireless connection you still need to buy an adapter
