Forum Topic "$400 Office Build"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

Would getting a different case leave enough room in the budget for an SSD? I guess it really depends on how much storage space is needed, because removing the 1TB HDD would also leave room for an SSD.

Both of the systems already recommended are good in different ways.

If you want to go for the Ryzen setup, it's going to give you slightly lesser performance today, but can be easily upgraded just by throwing in a GPU.

The Intel setup will perform better right now, but if you want more performance, you're going to have to change more parts. You'll likely need a better CPU to keep up with any other GPU you'd want to put in.

So really, it's up to you. There's no right or wrong answer. Either build is good.

I would say she probably doesn't need the integrated graphics of the 2200G. A Kaby Lake Pentium would do perfectly. After replacing the CPU, I had enough room in the budget for an SSD which is going to make the computer feel so much faster versus having a normal HDD.

I would HIGHLY recommend having an SSD versus a normal HDD. The computer is going to feel so much faster. Get a smaller, cheaper SSD for now (like a 240GB) and throw in an extra 2TB HDD later. That's my opinion.

I'd go with a WD HDD, IMO. But yeah, no significant disadvantage performance wise for your motherboard.

Forum Topic "Loud, fast fan with no display on monitor"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 12 months ago

It's either the RAM or the motherboard. Have you tried putting just one RAM stick in? If neither RAM sticks work in any combination of slots, then it's likely the motherboard. If you have a friend who can loan you a stick of RAM to test in your machine, that would also tell you for sure.

If I were you, I would try the onboard sound first and see how you like it. I left a little room in your budget to add in a card if you want later. I'd read up some reviews on a good one.

There's no 1060ti. Next step up is the 1070, which is unfortunately out of your price range.

250GB might not last long, but it's always very easy to add in another HDD. Save a bit of money now so you can get your most important components first. Once you run out of space, grab a HDD.

Forum Topic "Looking for a PUBG build"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 1 point 13 months ago

The RAM from your old build is not compatible, unfortunately. Your old build is DDR3, the i7-7700 takes DDR4.

3GB of VRAM will probably only allow you to play at 1080p for a bit longer. 6GB of VRAM would be a much better investment.

4GB VRAM is the sweet spot nowadays.

Forum Topic "Final opinion check before i buy and build"

Vairfoley 30 Builds 2 points 13 months ago

You really don't need a liquid cooler for an 8400. It's a locked CPU, so you won't be doing any overclocking and there's no need for a cooling solution like that. The stock cooler should do just fine.

After removing that and the 2TB HDD (you can always add that down the road to save money now) I was able to upgrade you to a 1060.

That processor is awesome, but you are sacrificing 3GB of VRAM on your GPU and 8GB of system RAM. That build also has a smaller SSD lesser PSU, and an unreliable hybrid drive.

I'd go with the Ryzen + 1060 6GB if I were you, unless you can try just buying the CPU and MOBO off of him because those are nice.

At this point, I would say a system overhaul is due. You'll definitely be able to keep the CPU cooler, HDD, case, and PSU.

What kind of price range are you going for?

Good partslist, but at your budget, I would definitely recommend 16GB of RAM over 8GB. Games nowadays can eat that up pretty quickly. Maybe get a slightly lower budget PSU to make room? Or possibly a cheaper motherboard? It's up to you.

Welcome to the world of custom PCs! Always exciting building your first.

I wouldn't worry too much about the motherboard since you have a locked processor and aren't overclocking. Just find one that looks nice and has enough USB ports, audio ports, etc.

For your GPU, I would recommend the 1050ti 4GB edition for that extra GB or video memory. It will benefit you more in the long run, I believe.

Also, I would do some research on Ryzen processors vs your Intel for streaming. The extra cores Ryzen offers can help a lot with that, and Adobe suite products as well.
