I have a Hitachi 2TB HDD and a Crucial 275 GB SSD. I would recommmend a SAMSUNG with higher storage for the SSD, and a liquid cooler. My PC runs too hot with this little Noctua, I have a Corsair h100i pro on the way. Otherwise I’m hitting like 90C while gaming and 40C idle.
Thanks for the advice. My PSU is only two years old but I’ll play it safe.
Haha thank you, I see lots of green everyday
Looks awesome, but a few questions.
Is the cable extension mod just for making cable management easier? And what does the power supply bracket do?
I think you should use only one 1080 Ti, one is plenty and the benefit of one more isn't that much for it to be worth it.
Absolutely. I'm currently in the military, at advanced training, I bought a decent laptop since it's not worth it to have my desktop shipped.
My classes should end around July and I'll have some good money saved. Hopefully a lot of new cool **** will be out by then.
Ahh yes the one from the Nvidia site, I'm guessing it will be out of stock for awhile huh?
Nice, I hadn't heard about 2070 or 2080. I wasn't planning on doing this upgrade til about July, thank you.
I've never overclocked before and I'm not sure how to do it. Could you give me some pointers?
I hadn't considered doing that, how much of a boost will this give me?
Maybe could you recommend a few that are under 1000? I don't play on spending any money for awhile, the army don't pay us much as a young private lul
And I'll be here for a damn while
Isn't the last one the one I was planning on getting?
Geez could the pictures be any smaller?
Looks good from what I can (barely) see.
My PC runs it just nicely. Here's my specs.
Manage those cables
Great build but that keyboard funky XD
I love the roleplay here. Do you have a mini credit card that you bought this all with?
You've got a sexy voice mate.
They're all updated.
It's set to find DNS server automatically. I'll try that but which one? There's a 4 and 6 version.
Well this is news to me. I'm not very good with keeping to date, I'll be sure to be more mindful. Just looking at the specs of the Ryzen, would this build be suitable for it?
Thank you for the advice. Would a 1050 or 1060 be safer?
Oh god this took me so long to figure out what you were saying, that part was just the copy paste from the template. It looks really confusing okay.
Here you go
Yeah I could have put an i5.
Yeah I overshot the PSU a bit, I'll tone it down.
Motherboard...ehh I hate choosing that part more than anything.
Now for the case. If you look at several images of an AV rack, they are open and exposed to air, not great for a PC without a case. The PC is going to put in the rack, and hooked up to a projector. Now if I had a picture of his AV rack, and it was a closed rack, I would remove the case. However, I don't know, so I can't assume.

Okay so...this is a lot to look at. You can spend $2000 and get it to run anything. I'll seriously cut down on the cost here. It's disorganized and wayyyy too much money, I'm going to assume you don't care what you spend, so I'll still make it good.
Took some fans away, YOU DON'T NEED THAT MANY.
Changed the motherboard, it's so effing pricey!
Changed the CPU, $1000 CPU? Yeah no.
Changing your storage, it's so disarrayed I barely know how to approach this. 2 SSD's and 2 HDD's will do just fine.
Not touching your peripherals.
Good monitors, won't touch those.
Now that I've removed a lot of stuff, the wattage has been greatly reduced although it will take a lot to power the 3 monitors, so I'll change it to an 750W.
Cheaper optical drive, it's a disc reader, not a GPU. Get a cheap one.
Knocked $3000 off, but honestly, there's still a lot of unnecessary things, but I won't touch it.
I don't know the dimensions of your AV rack, so you may need to adjust the case accordingly.
You need to tell me more than just that cause I don't know if you need an OS, monitor...etc. I'll add them on since you said everything. Also, you need to choose your own peripherals, that's up to you. Otherwise it's just our suggestion.
Mouse comes with the keyboard, and the headset is what I use, it's good. I can't really fit it under $1000 cause you need "everything" but I'm sure you'll update me somehow.
Need OS? Peripherals? Monitor? Make sure you tell us everything. This here are the main components, if you need an OS and anything, I'm gonna have to change it to probably an AMD build.
You didn't buy much storage for a PC built for storing things although I don't think those kinds of files will take much space. Good build.
If you're going to be dealing with large file sizes, get 2TB instead of 1TB. It's worth the extra couple bucks.
It's better to layout everything you want, makes our job a bit easier.
Main specs are the same as above, just a few differences in RAM, PSU, and case.
You want to get a CPU that's around the level of your GPU, don't go hard on one area and neglect the others, otherwise you'll bottleneck your system.
This is my PC right here, minus the SSD. I can 1080 60fps all the games I have. I don't have a 4k monitor/tv so I can't tell you that but I'm sure it would be just fine med-high settings.
That would be a little more feasible.
However I recommend that you don't do upgrades in small amounts. It saves you money in the future. It's more cost benefit to make a larger purchase for the long run, than several small purchases in the short run.
Especially when the stuff you're upgrading to isn't very good either.
CPU cooler fans last until they break. But obviously, reapply the thermal paste when you're rebuilding this PC.
I would upgrade to an i5-6500 and a GTX 1060 3GB.
I can't really tell how bad the bottleneck will be just from looking(in most cases), but you should get a better CPU, and a 470 instead if you can buy it.
Looks good! However, I would get a PSU with a lower wattage output, say around 450-500W.
Your GPU doesn't change the monitor resolution or the FPS like that, I could have a 1080 and set my settings to 720 30fps.
I could do a gtx 1050 for 1080 60fps as well, but if he can spend the money if he's not going to save it, might as well buy the card now instead of having to upgrade it in the future.
Looks great! Do you have a price range? Going to overclock? No need to spend the extra dollars on the unlocked processor if you're not going to overclock.
Also possibly choose a cheaper case if you want to save money. There's plenty of black mirrored cases for less than that.
You've started off very well here.
I already forgot what I changed, I think the RAM and the PSU.
Yes that's fine. I have pretty much the same specs except my card is the 6GB version and I can stream just fine. Your internet is also a factor in this so make sure that's square and dandy.
Since you said to keep it around $2k, I can make improvements to your list, and make it more powerful at the same time.
Your CPU can be changed to the 6500 locked CPU if you're not going to overclock.
Changed to a cheaper black case
Lower capacity SSD, the OS and your games should go on here, you don't need that much unless you really really need it.
GTX 1070, if you have $2k to spend, you should settle for something better. Even a 1080 could be fit in here, but I refrained.
Removed 2 of those fans. Why do you need so many?
I didn't touch your peripherals since I assume that those are personal preference, but I would go for cheaper headphones ;)
I didn't make a list for you, but if you get cheaper headphones and a cheaper mouse, you could squeeze a GTX 1080 in there. It will save you money in the long run if you can spend 2k now.
Just for upgrading in the future, that's all.
I would opt for a higher PSU wattage, perhaps 400 Watts?
I have to agree with Czex. Your "High End" build with the 6500k and 1060 is $1500+, 600 dollars more for less storage, more RAM, and an unlocked processor compared to my build. Not to mention that the PC in question is on sale. Also the cases are rather plain and boring.
Another way you could stand out is by building your PC's really well. The build here is kinda messy.
Yes just put them in the PC Part picker list, and it will tell you.
