As long as you use the 840 as your main drive - your system will be great.

Regarding the parts list you made it looks great. You could go micro atx if you want but that's more preference.

It looks great - no outstanding problems; though I will say compared to the stock cooler, the dark rock pro might not be 100% worth it.

Not in the build I have because the motherboard comes with a wireless adapter. (That's what the AC means)

Also, most motherboards (including the one I have) come with wired wifi/ethernet.

Ok I would still recommend an ssd as it's so much faster, but if you don't want to get an ssd, a hybrid drive will work ok.

For gaming, you should definitely invest more towards the gpu than the cpu. Also, at the present time, games tend to favor clocks over cores which is why I selected the 9600k.

& just to note - make sure you put the OS on the ssd and use it as the main drive.

The difference would be a slightly higher quality sound output.

Assuming you wont be doing audio production, you really shouldn't need one as the motherboard's built-in audio is more than enough.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "What do the letters mean on AMD CPUs and more."

If you mean r3 vs r5 vs threadripper, the names just describes levels of performance/price/the audience the specified cpus are made for. So r3 is like budget, r5 gaming, and threadripper's for different sorts of workstations.

It's similar to intel's naming scheme. In fact, I would argue AMD's is less vague.

& Yes it's normal for the CPU to do that, it has boost clock so that when the cpu needs more power, it can get it.

What you do to install windows on an ssd in a new computer is you put the windows 10 installation media onto the usb then open that on the laptop while using the ssd as the main drive. Then with the installation media you can install w10 on the ssd. You can later configure the hard drive as the storage drive and stuff.

You don't need a sound or video card because the 2200g has a built-in graphics processor. Also, the motherboard has sound output.

Ok thanks - if I go for the 2200g build I'll get the BR; however it's quite possible that I'll go for the pentium + 1050 which will draw ~150W.

So in that case would you recommend the cx450 over the evga 500B? (evga ~55 CAD, cx450 ~65 CAD)

Is it really necessary to upgrade to that tho? Does the jump from 100W to 150W in pc power consumption really require another $20 for a psu?

What will you be using this pc for, what is your budget, and what aesthetic things are you striving to have?

One definite change would be the ssd, there are better options, such as the adata su800

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Advice wanted (i am nub, with research)"

With the parts you currently have, I'd recommend something 1440p or 4k with good color accuracy, ips and 120ish+ hz for the monitor.

Regarding price saving, you could downgrade basically everything if you wanted to, but I don't know what you want & at what resolution + what your budget is.

Ryzen 2 might be a considerable option, you probably dont need the cpu cooler as amd's cpus come with decent ones, 32gb of ram is overkill (at that price point), you could probably get a 500gb ssd, & pretty sure the motherboard has built-in 1mbit/s ethernet.

Yeah, as kschendel said, it comes with a 'good-enough' cooler to begin with. If you want to oc a bit and temps aren't the best then sure invest in a nice cryorig in the future. Since the price is so close to 800, there's no reason to compromise other parts for a cooler in the build i suggested.
