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.
I'd honestly go with a used 1070 over the 2060 if you're on a budget. Then, use the money you save on some more RAM.
Looks great! The 2600 + 2070 is an awesome combo at your budget. I would look into 3200 MHz ram, though. Ryzen likes fast RAM.
It was sitting around for quite a while, I forgot exactly how much I bought it for. It was going to be used in a build that never got finished.
Wow. This is my first time seeing this case, that's incredible. You did a fantastic job with the loop(s).
Wow, awesome value! You did a great job with the part list.
I would HIGHLY recommend grabbing an SSD. You can get a 120GB one for right around $20 and it makes a huge difference.
If you look at the top, it adds up the TDP of all the components in the list. It's not a perfect way to calculate, but it's a good starting point.
According to PCPP, your build will draw 369W of power but you always wanna have at least about 150W/250W of headroom. 369+250=619 and I rounded up to the 750W in case you wanted to overclock.
Very nice looking build and great choice of parts!
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
I made a few edits to your list:
The P7/9 are really made for full custom loops so if you don't want to tackle that I'd recommend the P3.
Otherwise, I filled up all your RAM slots, got you a bigger radiator, and a whiter color scheme overall. There's also a bit more in the budget now if you wanted some speakers or a nice desk etc...
If you give me a budget, I'll throw a list together for you with my recommendations.
I would also HIGHLY recommend replacing your power supply. Usually, I think people worry too much about their power supplies but Apevia is a pretty bad brand and 400W is just barely enough to run this system. I would recommend at the very least a 500W 80 Plus Bronze certified unit.
So the top 5 is:
guitpicker007 - 138
Sensible_Systems - 56
Vairfoley - 30
Skemble - 24
Khaosix - 22
Eltech - 20
Is that right?
Just took a look at some of your builds, they're pretty sweet!
