I agree with all of this. The 5700 XT is awesome, too. Here's what I came up with:
PCPartPicker Part List
Looks awesome! That will be a great combo. I gave you faster RAM (RGB too! It's on sale), more storage, and a slightly lower wattage PSU that will still be more than enough.
Yes, actually. I had to double and triple check the motherboard manual online and that's the way it's supposed to be.
32GB is likely going to be more than enough, but it depends exactly what applications you are using. Then, you can invest as much as you can into the CPU.
I would definitely recommend waiting for AMD's new CPUs to release July 7th. they have more cores and more threads than Intel's offerings at the same price point and they are supposed to surpass Intel in performance across the board.
That AIO liquid cooler will fit in the case without issue. Are you going to be overclocking? If you're running at stock speeds, the stock cooler included will be more than enough. Thermal paste is included with either of these options so you don't need to buy it.
Whether you want a high end GPU is completely up to you. I always say get the best you can afford.
Your docking station will work, but you might lose some performance if you plug your monitor into the docking station while your gaming.
The only thing I might recommend is waiting a few days until July 7th when AMD will be releasing their new Ryzen CPUs which are supposed to surpass even Intel's offerings right now. I would do a bit of research there and see if it would be worth waiting in your case.
Very interesting, thanks for sharing!
4 cores can handle all of that? Is the Quadro doing most of the heavy lifting? I've never seen an i3 in a server like this before. Very cool build.
Oh yeah, no problem at all. The 2080Ti is the most powerful gaming graphics card out there right now. And the 9900K is also the best gaming CPU out at the moment. You can't really get a better combo.
Whoops, yes. July 7th.
Looks good, but I do have a few suggestions.
The 2700X is a great CPU, but AMD will also be releasing their new processors on July 7th so it would definitely be worth it to wait a week until then to see what they have to offer. NVIDIA will allegedly be doing the same towards the middle of July, but it's up to you if you wanted to wait or not.
The only other thing I would suggest is getting a bigger SSD. They're getting so cheap nowadays that I usually recommend getting a 1TB normal 2.5" SATA SSD for right around $80. The M.2 will be a bit faster, but in my opinion, having 4 times the storage might be worth it.
I kept the list very similar but I opted for the 2700 to leave room in the budget for faster memory and a better power supply. I also switched the SSD to a more reliable brand, in my experience.
Those are all high quality components, I see no issues. I would get a higher wattage power supply, though. I'd do at least a 750W, but preferably an 850W. You have some power hungry components.
The new Ryzen CPUs are also coming out on July 7th, so I might reccomend at least waiting until then. They're supposed to be comparable to Intel if not surpassing them by a fair bit.
Waiting until June 7th (when AMD releases their 3rd gen Ryzen chips) might not be a bad idea. If you really wanted to wait to see how NVIDIA super does, then you can.
If you don't want to wait, you could always get a nice X470 board with a cheaper CPU in there and then decide if you wanted to upgrade when Ryzen 3rd gen launches. Same with the GPU.
I love to see 4th gen i5s still going. Nice build, looks very cool.
You've given yourself a lot of room to upgrade, nice work!
Your B450 board should be compatible with 3rd gen Ryzen chips and 650W should be plenty to power a high end card. You have a lot of room in your case, too.
It's awesome to see X79 still in use. Nice build! That 4930K is still a great CPU.
I love specific purpose built rigs like this. Nice work!
If all you're doing is gaming, it shouldn't be too bad. Worst case scenario, you could grab a used 7700K and you'd for sure have no problems.
Looks pretty good! Just to let you know, new Ryzen Cpus will be coming out on July 7th.
I'd also look into getting a different brand SSD. I usually for for an ADATA, PNY, or TeamGroup when I'm looking for a cheaper SSD.
Keep in mind there aren't any prices out for AMD X570 motherboards for the 3600 yet so I chose a decent X470 one to roughly estimate the price.
You could use your monitor for this rig, but I would recommend upgrading. This machine is capable of more than just 1080p 60FPS. I'd get a 1080p 144hz panel or some kind of 1440p monitor to go along with this.
Everything looks good!
After having personal experience building in that case, I would reccomend something else considering the components you're putting in. They'll all fit, but it might be a little cramped and hot.
Take a look at this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/p8x2FT/nzxt-h500-black-atx-mid-tower-case-ca-h500b-b1
I agree, I added one to the list above.
This is what I would do:
That's a good idea!
The card AMD announced is going to be an equivalent to the RTX 2070, apparently. If you're planning on a 2080 Ti, there isn't going to be anything faster for a while longer.
Since you're on an older platform, you wouldn't be able to just throw a 9900K into your system. it wouldn't be compatible. The fastest CPU your motherboard can support is the i7-7700K, which you might have to buy used since they aren't made anymore. I see them on ebay for right around $300.
If you wanted something soon, I recommended the Ryzen 2600 combo because it will come out to right around $500 when all is said and done. You might be able to fit a Ryzen 7 in there, even. If you're willing to wait, I'd definitely recommend going with 3000 series Ryzen since it's so soon.
Another thing to consider is that Ryzen does not have integrated graphics, so you will not be able to run all of your monitors unless you got a different/additional graphics card.
I agree. Ryzen is an awesome platform, but you'd be better off going with a more workstation oriented chip like a Threadripper.
If you're willing to wait, it might be worth it to hold out until July 7th when AMD releases their new CPUs. The top end Ryzen 9 3900X is going to have 12 cores 24 threads for $499 which would be awesome for you at this price point and help you out with editing.
That all depends on how much you're willing to spend and if you want to keep the parts or resell them since they're brand new. There are some newer parts out right now that might be worth upgrading to but it all depends on your budget.
Here's an idea, at least. My monitor recommendation is going to depend on your budget and what games you're going to be playing:
If you're streaming, either go for the 2600 right now or wait for the 3600X in July.
I mean it's all up to you but I'd be impressed if you noticed a 0.1FPS difference in gaming. That's without streaming, too.
Where'd you get that number from? The 2700X and the 2080 should work perfectly together.
How would you feel about a Ryzen 7 + RTX 2080 combo?
I'd go with this one.
You're right, I didn't consider that. Here's a better motherboard with 8 SATA ports for the same price:
A lot of CAD programs work best with Intel/NVIDIA. If this were a gaming rig, I would have chosen very different parts. An RX 570/580 would be much better value for gaming, for sure.
Specific part recommendations as far as brand, not really. I think the build guide I posted above is great for the money as well as all the other guides. My recommendations would be completely based on how much you want to spend, because you can really spend as little or as much as you want.
You have a 4th generation i5 as a processor with 8GB of RAM. You also don't have a solid state drive, just a 1TB HDD. The monitor you have is 1080p 60hz which you could keep if you wanted along with the keyboard and mouse.
In fact, if you're logged into a Microsoft account on your desktop right now, you might even be able to transfer the Windows 10 license so you wouldn't have to buy it.
The i5 you have is old, but it's not awful. If you really wanted to, you could throw a graphics card in. But after that, you might need a new powersupply. And then you'll probably want an SSD along with more RAM and then it might turn into an entirely new build anyways.
The amount of monitors you can push depends entirely on the graphics card.
Yes, the graphics card will fit into any PCI-E graphics card slot in the future. The VEGA 56 can run up to 4 or sometimes 5 displays.
Looks pretty good. I just changed a few things and put it into an actual list so it's a bit easier to look at (versus just a big line of text)
I wasn't sure exactly what Carbide case you were looking at before so I didn't include it in the list.
Those are some pretty outdated parts and the prices are quite inflated since stock is low.
Here's a much more modern and powerful build for $300 less that will chew through any task you can think of.
Let me know if this is closer to your budget and if you have any questions about it.
You could get this pretty quiet with some adjusted fan curves:
If you're not sure where to start/how much to spend, I'd definitely check out the Build Guides that PCPP does. They're pretty nice and they'll give you a good idea of how much you might want to spend and what you can get.
I took their Great AMD Gaming Build and added a monitor and Windows assuming you're starting from scratch.
That's a pretty good deal. Those are last gen parts now, so this was the closest I could get with current gen components. This one does have 32GB of RAM though.
I think a Ryzen 5 2600 with a decent B450 motherboard would work great for you:
They're very similar, but it's your call. If you have the money, go for the 2070. If you want to save some cash, get the 64.
For sure. Otherwise, you can upgrade all the way to the 7700K if you wanted on that motherboard.
I agree with this. I'd choose the Vega 64 over the 2060 for sure, but it looks like the 2070 would be better value.
