Zen is made by AMD which will be on a different platform (AM4) as Intel is currently using LGA1151 on their new CPU's so it won't be easy to get a Zen CPU to upgrade. The main reason I suggested Zen is because of the amount of cores, which will help in streaming.

Try this, if your streaming heavily I would either recommend getting an i5 or waiting for AMD Zen. If you don't upgrade your CPU you could also downgrade the GPU slightly and get a better CPU which may help Star Citizen gameplay

  1. You won't need thermal paste with most CPU coolers like this one. They are mainly for companies which makes a lot of PCs or if you want especially good cooling

  2. The CPU cooler isn't great for such an expensive build. If you want a good air cooler consider either this or this or alternatively you could get an AIO water cooler.

  3. That's a whopping SSD. I would get a 250GB SSD and a 1-2TB hard drive which you could easily get for around half the price.

  4. The PSU is very mediocre for such a build

  5. Unless you specifically want the case fan, it's not really necessary as I think the case comes with case fans.

This is without windows and a monitor as you could use the trial version (meaning it won't be very customisable) to save up and buy a key. This PC will handle VR pretty well, however a lot of the items are subjective to you, like the case and RAM

$2000. This powerhouse should follow the overwatch colour scheme really well. The Motherboard, GPU and CPU Cooler are all LED lit so you can choose whatever colours you want, which in your case is black, white and orange. I also put fans in there which might be nice to add more colour, or maybe even custom PSU cables. It should follow all of the things you wanted.

I hope you like it, it seeems really awesome to theme a PC in overwatch colours.

This is the best I could do with an i5 6600k and GTX 1070, but has a monitor that is only 2560×1080, which is still great, ultra wide and 75Hz, meaning you should he able to see 75fps as your system should be able to reach it any day of the week. All of these parts follow a black/Red colour scheme and are some of the best! I hope you like it :)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Help Me Finish This Build!"

If you were going for a Black/Red theme, for a motherboard, I would chose either the MSI Tomohawk AC as it comes with intergrated Wi-Fi connectivity and good overclocking capabilities, or if you wanted SLI (however losing intergrated Wi-Fi) I would choose one from this list

For a GPU, I would choose one from either this list (NVidia) or this list (AMD) as they are all VR capable and fairly cheap.

If you wanted a network card if you went for the SLI MoBo, I would chose one of these for wireless networking (if you didn't have Ethernet)

Hope this helps! :)

The hard drive(s) go in the back, and there are two slots for it. SSD's can either go in the front where there are two slots below the optical drive tray or one in the back behind the motherboard. It'seems a good case and easy to build in, I would recommend it :)

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Where To Upgrade My Pc?"

What PSU do you have and SLI with 960 ' s wouldn't be as good as a single GTX 1060 (which I would recommend as it is similar in performance to a 980 and similar in price to a 970 and on a newer chipset). You could get an SSD but it would be hard to put the OS onto the SSD without doing a clean install I think. And you won't necessarily need a new motherboard unless you get a new CPU or the motherboard breaks. I personally think you should either get a better PSU if it isn't good or get a newer graphics card like the GTX 1060 or GTX 1070

How's this? The CPU may be a bit over the top so you could change it to a i7 6800k which is similar and cheaper and spend the £100 on something else

If you can ask him to show benchmarks of it then that could help. It doubt it was used for Bitcoin mining, but it wouldn't hurt to ask.

The i7 2600k will probably be better for what you need, however it is used so you are risking it not working. If it isn't working, does the person allow returns or does the site have a refund policy if the item isn't what was specified (like eBay)?

The R9 380X doesn't perform on par with the RX 480, the R9 390 does. The FX 6300 is getting quite outdated and the socket will soon be obsolete. MisterJ's is probably the best without buying used because the i3 6100 beats the FX 6300 in most gaming situations, has good SC performance, and has good upgrade potential because the new Kaby Lake will also be on LGA1151, which is the same as Skylake.

That is a nice parts list! If you wanted to you could change the CPU cooler to the NZXT Kraken X61 which I think is slightly better and quieter. And the M.2 problem shouldn't affect you unless you are going to have multiple M.2 drives or SATA Express drives, which you aren't as the HDD is SATA III and the possible future SSD will probably also be SATA III

That is quite a low budget, this is the best I could do. It should be able to play most games, but might struggle on more demanding games like GTA V on high settings. I chose the cheapest case because they are really subjective and your budget was low

It is currently good value, what I would do is extend the price history to 2 years (or so) and see if there were any price drops among all retailers or if it has been at a lower price for a long time then it might be worth waiting. You could also go for the gigabyte equivalent which is the Gigabyte GA Z170X Gaming 5 if you wanted because that motherboard is practically the same

That's a great build. I know you've already purchased it but if you want to overclock and push your i7 further it might be worth getting an AIO cooler or even a custom watercooling loop. Also, I would recommend either of these because they are slightly bigger, have a better resolution and the same refresh rate. And it would probably be best to have an i7 if streaming and rendering videos.

EDIT: Just realised you're Australian and I put the monitors as US, scrap the monitor thing I put, the one you chose is great, or this one is practically identical but a bit bigger

Those are both pretty good. You don't need the CRYORIG H7 because the stock cooler should be fine unless you want to for aesthetics or something. I would recommend a 120GB SSD with either or both the builds because it will greatly speed up boot up times and game load times. The RX 470 will probably equal the R9 380 in performance but both are great cards. The PSU isn't the best but it should be good, instead I would recommend this for the i3 and this for the i5 if you could get them for a reasonable price. Otherwise, both are great builds.
