I'd definitely go with the RX 580 over the 1050.
If you want value, I'd go with ryzen over Intel for sure. After changing the CPU, I was able to bump up to 16GB of RAM and a better PSU as well.
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
This is what I came up with:
In my opinion, people tend to worry about powersupplies more than they need to. I've had quite a few power supplies blow on me and they have never bricked the system. Any moderately new hardware has plenty of failsafes in place to prevent overvolting, etc. Sure, a bad power supply might not last as long and you should get the best one you can get in your budget, but if it's from a reliable brand you're probably alright.
Going with that 6700K will help you out in the long run, for sure. You could go through 1-2 more new GPUs before having to upgrade anything else. It'll definitely be able to keep up.
Clean build with quality parts. Enjoy!
Sandy Bridge rocks! Nice build!
Looks great. Nice work!
Thanks! I had a lot of fun. I would have liked to go with faster RAM, but I was working on a budget. For right now, I don't think it will make much of a difference in the workloads this rig will be under. Just some light-medium gaming and video editing a few times a year, haha.
I love the paint job. Do you have a picture of the finished product with the 1070? How are the temps on that?
Sandy Bridge ROCKS!
It's actually ITX, but I'm not worried if it looks a little goofy. If you can think of any other cases besides the R6, let me know.
Without any issues.
This is what I'd recommend:
144hz and 1ms really helps for competitive games. The GTX 1080 and the 9600K should have no issues pushing out 144FPS in e-sports titles.
This might be your best bet. You could also look on eBay for used OEM systems with a decent CPU. Then, put in a nice GPU.
Wow, 1080p FreeSync for $200? That's a great deal. Hopefully 8GB of RAM will be enough for most games.
AMD CPU's are a much better value right now, so with $900, I would really recommend a Ryzen 5 CPU.
With Intel, in the same price range, you get 4 cores vs the 6 cores and 12 threads of the Ryzen CPU:
Did you check the BIOS for some kind of setting that disables the hardware warnings? I recently scrapped an Alienware ITX build that used an external power supply. I had to disable a setting in the BIOS before I could power it with a normal ATX PSU.
Great build, nonetheless.
Nope, it's just THAT FAST
Well, if you don't have any use for it, I'd totally sell it. You could probably get $500-$700 for it.
Great deal on all of the components. Can't go wrong with the price. Should work great for them.
You'll likely need to make a Windows 10 recovery media device to boot into the recovery options.
If the system was turned off during an update, that almost certainly corrupted something even if the files look okay to you.
This looks like a good guide. Explained it better than I could have.
I'd try updating the BIOS as a first step. It sounds like it's some freak thing with the motherboard or the CPU.
I wouldn't worry too much about it if you're confident your temperatures are good the rest of the time.
Are you sure there's no little speaker included with your motherboard? I would think there would be. Also, are there any indicator lights on the motherboard that can tell you something? I would take a look in the manual.
Otherwise, it sounds like a GPU error. I have to ask this: are you plugging into the GPU or the motherboard? You have to plug it in to the GPU ports in order to get a signal. Make sure the GPU is plugged into power and all of that stuff, too.
That i5-3470 is still a reasonable CPU. If you ever want to upgrade something like a 1050 Ti or an RX 580 would give you a nice jump in performance.
there's quite a few buisnesses who specializee in custom computer building and they'll be able to help you. I would do some research and see if any local buyisinesses are near you.
Otherwise, prebuilts are an option. You might not be getting as much value, but if you don't want to build it yourself, you might as well.
PC building can be a challenge, but everybody here would be eager to teach you a thing or two and point you in the right direction.
Where about are you located? If you're in southern Wisconsin, I can hook you up, haha.
I'm confused as to what this means. They're now pushing this new expansion but only letting you buy the base game with the expansion now?
How much content do we get in the free version? Just as much as when it originally launched?
Thank you for the detailed pictures. I'm planning to do a build in that case soon and I was wondering exactly how the GPU is mounted and how much clearance there is.
Great build as well!
How are the temps on the VEGA? I can't tell where it's taking air in.
Nice parts choice. I'd definitely look into an SSD at some point, though.
Totally spaced that out. 3000MHz would definitely be a better option.
Very unique build. Are you overclocking at all?
That's true. I did a 2600 build with a B350 chipset not too long ago and I was able to get the ram up to speed right away without any updates, maybe because it was shipped with the updates already installed.
But, with an 1800X build I did, we had to update the BIOS before we could get the RAM up to speed, and it still has intermittent issues.
It might be a good idea to upgrade to 32GB since OP says they're running out of RAM while multitasking.
Maybe switch to a 2600X/2700 and a cheaper cooler?
The 2700X and the 1080 will come out to $720 as well if I'm doing my math right. I'd say a 1080 with either the 2700X or 8600K depending on what you're doing.
I'd say this is a nice starting point. The CPU can be easily upgraded to something more powerful later.
The 2400G's integrated graphics are just slightly less powerful, but it will save you some money and work very nicely with a new GPU when you feel the need to upgrade.
I also switched you to an SSD. If I were you, I'd see how long the 240GB lasts. It's very easy to throw in a standard HDD later.
You could always try and find a slightly smaller radiator, as well.
Would that apply to the B450 chipset, though? 2nd gen Ryzen has been a lot better.
Wow, very cool. Open air cases look really nice when done right.
Everything looks good. Do you know if your software would work faster with a Quadro card? You might want to consider that over the 2080 Ti if so.
You're likely going to have to buy used if you want a good streaming experience. This is what I could put together with what's available through PCPP, but I would search eBay for better deals.
I'd recommend the Ryzen 7 2700X to leave some room in your budget for a better GPU. It's up to you, though. The Ryzen CPU is much better value.
You really can't go wrong with either. I'd choose whatever motherboard has the features you have and a style that you like.
I'd say you might as well get 32GB. Why not? You can do a lot with 5000 CAD.
Everything else looks great, this will be a killer build.
This is probably your best option. You'll definitely have to dive into the used market and find some deals.
Impossible to tell. It all depends on the components and the retailer.
It depends if you want on-board Wifi or not. If you really want the "best" motherboard you can get, you could get the MAXIMUS XI FORMULA
Once again, impossible to tell, unfortunately. If you want 8 cores and 16 threads, I'd go with the Ryzen 2700X which is much more likely to be in stock.
I'm not a monitor expert, so I'll let someone else give their two cents.
At your budget, I'd say "why not" just to make everything match.
What exactly are you using this computer for? Depending on exactly what your budget is, you might get better performance out of a different configuration than a 9900K and a 1080.
He says there aren't any available where he lives, unfortunately.
Either an RX 560 or a GTX 1050 Ti would work great. The 1050 Ti will be a bit better, so I would get that if you can.
Wow, you did a great job for your first build. Looks super clean.
Why did you decide to go with the 8086K over the 9700K? More threads?
