I have this question too. Is it your personal rig too? Gaming, etc?

I may be wrong, but my understanding is that OP is running a form of RAID, and in RAID, you typically have a copy of the data on another drive, in case the first drive fails. The less drives you have, the higher probabality that all drives fail at the same time.

Think he was being sarcastic. I'll be honest, that cable management isn't good. Try routing as many cables as you can from the back. I can send you pics of my PC if you want some reference (or just go online and look at how people cable manage their PCs.)

https://uk.pcpartpicker.com/list/zFbnZR So this build comes in at 935 BP, without the 2TB hard drive. So I would guess that the total before taxes etc, would be 1000 BP. Now this build does have a R5 3600, and an X570 motherboard. And X570 motherboards are pretty expensive right now. Zen 2 launched about two? weeks ago now, so still relatively new, and not many budget friendly options out there. You could take an B450/X470 motherboard, and update the BIOS to support Zen 2, but since you do seem somewhat new to building, sticking to the plug and play route may prove easier for you. You could opt for the R5 2600, and a B450 motherboard, which would put you well within your budget. This would be sufficient for your needs, though the R5 3600 does have some impressive performance improvements. I would say that an R5 3600 build for you budget would be possible in another month or two, once the prices have kind of settled a bit.

These old LGA1155 are actually pretty good. I have an i5 2320, and an i7 2600K. When paired up with my RX570 8GB, the i5 2320 was a slight bottleneck. But with my 2600K, I've been running games at 1080P 60+FPS no problem. It can most definitely run Minecraft, Terraria, CS:GO, you name it.

Hi! Sorry for the very late reply, haven't been on PCPP in a few days lol. What is your exact budget? 800 USD or 800 british pounds? And what resolution and settings? Either way, for the sub £/$1000 range, you're probably looking at a Ryzen 5 2600/X, RX580 or equivalent, and 16GB RAM as your performance components. This should be able to run the latest games of any sort at 1080P, 60+ FPS. I can put up the rest of the parts list once I know your specific budget.

Well besides the creative title, everything else looks neat af. Since you seem to be doing a black and white theme, have you looked at using Chromax parts / fans? Also, in pic 12, what was that iPhone doing there?

(Sorry for being late to your question) What sort of future games? If they're also strategy games similar to ones you mentioned, this would definitely be ready, and possibly a little bit overkill. For your needs, a Ryzen 5 1600 and a RX580 would do. And this would cover you if you ever feel like playing modern AAA titles at med-high 1080P.

I don't think my motherboard is scrap because of the tiny damage. It's just that there is no power whatsoever flowing through the motherboard. So the power switch does nothing, jump starting the PC doesn't do anything. Not quite sure what the issue is. One theory of mine is that the 24 pin connector on my PSU doesn't actually touch the other pins in the motherboard. Like the 24 pins on the motherboard are too deep so it's physically impossible to make the connect. I plan on testing that by buying some jumper wires and manually connecting them.

I see. Any hiccups at all? I spent a good four hours building, an hour spent on just installing my H105. Long story short, a tiny part of my board was damaged. And now my computer won’t turn on. Still troubleshooting, though it’s now 1AM and I have yet to figure out the problem.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Good GPU for CAD"

I am a student (high school). Though I may be able to get away with using a consumer card like the GTX 1060, isn't there a performance advantage? As Allan stated, "With that being said, there are a FEW openGL viewports out there that do require workstation drivers to enable all functionality and unlock the full performance available from the GPU for the viewport. Here again, it's a racket to sell a GPU at a higher price, but this time, there's actually a performance advantage being purchased for that pro price point. Solidworks is a good example of this." I will be using Solidworks, so would it still be advised that I go ahead and get a Quadro?

But would having more threads have a performance advantage here? Or would four additional threads not make much of a difference?

So this is my current parts list. Do you see any potential bottlenecks or any possible/potential incompatibilities with Solidworks?

Well I could, but I'm trying to build a workstation that isn't for gaming. I will be learning/needing to CAD, so I need a desktop for that. And what's holding me back is my lack of knowledge for GPUs that are ideal for CADing.

Hi Allan, thanks for taking your time to write this response! The main software I will be using will probably be Solidworks. Forgot to mention that. I do know that gaming GPUs can run Solidworks (my friend has a Razer Blade with a 1060 and runs Solidworks). But like you mentioned, I read that some software require workstation GPUs to fully maximize performance. And just curious, what's your work desk setup like? (Especially interested in seeing the 5 monitor setup lol.)

Yeah I don't expect my workstation build to game. Going to be exclusively for CAD/any other rendering or design work. Thank you for the recommendations! Will look into it!

Went ahead and updated your build. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/6zdkV6 With tax, it should squeak in right around $1000. (Now if you don't calculate tax, there's a small chunk of money for you to play around with. Maybe more fans, or another drive, etc.)

I've considered getting a Sliger mITX case, I just don't know which one. The SM550 or SM560. It appears that the difference is small, just that the SM550 is 1.3L smaller and can only fit two slot cards. Any thoughts?

16GB of RAM and no GPU is kinda off putting. I'd just recommend perhaps a low budget GPU like the RX460, or heck even a 1030 (though there aren't any good looking 1030s if aesthetics are going to matter). Though I have to remark on the really nice casework. Love the gold, fits in really well.
