Absolutely, although it wouldn't be necessary on the last build considering that it has an ac adapter included.

Also, that isn't the best adapter out there, as it doesn't work with the latest ac wireless standard. I'd recommend something like this.

This will be a fantastic build for you. R7 for the streaming performance, GTX 1070 will blow away any game you throw at it in 1080p and do very well in 1440p. Kept it in budget as well.

Gonna go with a Ryzen build for the streaming and editing performance, as those are more heavily multi-threaded workloads. Able to fit in two GTX 1080 Ti's in SLI at launch price.

No real opportunities to put in those dope RGB lights though.

Potential Issues / Incompatibilities

NZXT Kraken X62 Liquid CPU Cooler and AMD RYZEN 7 1700 3.0GHz 8-Core Processor are not compatible. NZXT Kraken X62 Liquid CPU Cooler and ASRock X370 Taichi ATX AM4 Motherboard are not compatible.

Might not be worth going over for. (Theoretically, he could buy it and then go through customer service with NZXT to get the AM4 mounting brackets when they come out at the end of the month, but that sounds annoying as ****.)

I believe you said you already have the Nano S. In that case, go for this for a media center.

If you don't already have the case, go for an i5-7500 to stay in budget.

I'd highly recommend the RX 480 over the GTX 1060 in that price point, as it's showing better benchmarks after the release of the ReLive drivers, as well as the growing number of games being released that utilize DX12.

You don't need the H7 as your temps will already be fine, but if you really like the aesthetic, I'd recommend the C7 to save yourself a couple bucks.

The G2 is a far superior PSU to the NEX, check out JonnyGURU's reviews.

Updated your motherboard to an ATX form factor just so you don't have to worry about standoff placement during building.

The i2267Fw is $50 cheaper with a lot of the same specs, but if you need the inch, go for the i2367Fh.

Saved you $100 with the GPU upgrade and monitor change. With an extra $200 in the budget, you could still grab a 1070.

Not OCing is completely fine, but if you buy a 7600K and don't overclock it, you'd be wasting your money. You'd save money and lose nothing by getting the 7600.

You'll probably get a much better build if you go with a brand new Ryzen chip or the brand new 1080 Ti, but I won't recommend them on principle yet without proper benchmarks and reviews.

Basically, I'll check back on this tomorrow and probably recommend a 1700X/1080Ti build.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "BEST $1300 USD SETUP"

I'd highly recommend changing out your CPU, then. There's absolutely no benefit to having a 7600K if you're not overclocking, so you should step down to one of the locked chips.

The i5-7500 is the best value chip, you won't notice the base clock difference with the i5-7600, although it does have a noticeably higher boost clock, and it still fits in your budget. Also, you then don't have to spend the extra on an aftermarket cooler, as the bundled stock cooler is perfectly adequate for cooling a locked chip.

Not sure why you're interested in dual channel, as the performance boost is negligible, but it can be thrown in.

Went over by a bit to accommodate the unlocked i5, the 1070, and an IPS monitor that will actually take advantage of the budget. If you only want to play at 1080p, feel free to go back in budget with something like an AOC i2267Fw (Note: 144Hz IPS displays are stupidly expensive, so a 1440p60 panel is the only one that makes sense really.) that won't really take advantage of all the 1070 can do.

Unlocked Kaby Lake i5 under a Cryorig H7 on a great ASRock board, necessary RAM, boot/OS SSD and some mass storage, a great card in the 1070, and a nice deal on a case with a top-of-the-line power supply.

Great 1440p IPS display for the price, OS included.

Some super questionable part choices.

A Z170 motherboard? That chipset is both only useful for unlocked processors, and would require a BIOS flash to be used with a G4560. It gives absolutely no benefit over a B250 board, and requires the hassle of a flash.

16GB RAM on this budget, for what purpose? 8GB is all that's necessary in a gaming build as no game will take up more than 6 or so. Unless he's streaming or using a memory-intensive application, more than half of that will sit unused.

The 1060 3G is outperformed by the RX 480 at its price point in every aspect. The extra GB of VRAM is noticeable, as AAA titles are tending to push 2-3GB nowadays. (4G vs 8G, then, is not yet noticeable.) Also, the 3G has 10% of its cores disabled, leading to lower performance across the board.

Sadly, the 1070 isn't going to be in your price range. An all-in budget of $1000 with OS, a monitor that actually takes advantage of it, and mechanical keyboard is essentially a $650 tower, and a 1070 isn't going to fit in that budget-wise. And, that's in USD. SGD is just going to make that harder on your wallet.

1080p60 gaming, however, is totally doable for you on that budget. Here's a build with a Kaby Lake i5, 8G RX 480, and quality components across the board.

Yeah, the EVGA BQs are never in my builds as they're not very well-constructed units, although for an RX 470 in this build, it's probably worth it.

Although, if an extra $10 materializes, I'd recommend either the XFX or ASUS cards hovering at $155 rather than the PowerColor -- they're not the greatest with QC or customer service.

Best bang-for-the-buck components in the G4560 and the RX 460. Remember, a $650 all-in budget leaves you with a $400 tower.

Monitor is a fantastic IPS display, nicely styled keyboard bundle.

Yes, it is an incredibly dumb idea to use that CPU because the Ryzen series chips come out in literally less than 48 hours. I'm still going to wait on real benchmarks, but it sounds like you're really going to want to wait if you want those cores.

Unlocked i5 (you'd only need an i7 for editing/streaming.) and a GTX 1080. Built-in wireless on the motherboard (the LED can be turned off through ASRock software.) Good value cooler, kept my temps under a 6600K icy cold. 8GB RAM all you need, good value SSD for your boot/OS. Fantastic case (the LED can also be turned off, I think by holding the button for them on the case.), top-of-the-line PSU.

Your friend has to save up to $350 to get a PC with reliable components to run any games, that's just the reality of it.

$200 won't get you a good experience whatsoever. They're recommending old Athlons' integrated graphics -- I'd be surprised if you'd be able to run vanilla Minecraft and have a good time.

Here's the link to the case on Amazon, I'd highly recommend it at its price. Just temporarily out of stock, it'll come back on.

Any DDR4 (288-pin DIMM) RAM is compatible.

All I'd recommend is the i5-7500 instead of the Skylake build for $7 more. (I assume that you meant to put that in.)

Unlocked i5 (all you need for purely gaming, an i7 is only worth the money if you're editing or streaming.) and put it under a Dark Rock 3 on an all-black Gigabyte board. 16GB RAM, a basic SSD that'll give you all the boot/OS speed you'd ever want and an HDD for mass. GTX 1080 to destroy any game you throw at it, black and silver. Beautiful case with a tempered glass panel and a top-of-the-line PSU.

144Hz monitor (note: you're not getting the full capability of the 1080 with this, I just stayed in budget. An upgrade to a 1440p 144Hz panel like a Dell S2417DG would be a great upgrade if your budget increases.), great mechanical keyboard and a solid mouse, threw the OS in there.

Only note that you'll need to move all the standoffs to fit the motherboard in the case, but that's all. No idea how he fit an RX 480 and i5 into this budget, you're not going to get any better than this.

He said "he needs a monitor", so I put one in. I agree that the 5 year old monitor is perfectly fine, but I'm just bein' flexible.

I'd wait on recommending Ryzen builds until real reviews/benchmarks come out, not just from demo numbers.

Whoops.

Geez, you need to make a lot of downgrades to save $100.

Kaby Lake i5, RX 480 8G, and a black/white aesthetic included, with a 240GB SSD. OS included.

Fantastic quality components across the board.

Yeah, "wait for Ryzen" is a bit of a circlejerk, but for these specific needs, it's a good option.
