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.
Yo so what if you just kept the r9 390x, and added it to this:
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
If you just mean the components maybe something like this:
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.
Ah ok mb :)
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.
What about something like this?:
Here's an idea to build off of:
You could consider Intel as well.
Do you need a sound card?
How does this look?:
How much are you willing to pay for new parts?
I don't think the H81 chipset supports the i5 2400.
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.
He just means what country they are from.
I find this hard to read, maybe you list links to the parts you have?
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.
yeah $10 cad sry it's 1am.
& thanks for the info - I'll keep this stuff in mind when I make my decision on the psu.
Sorry, but what is "yellow exclamation sign as tray icon"?
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?
Is 600 CAD your budget?
Here's an idea to work off of:
The gpu actually comes with a free, ok psu on newegg so that might be worth considering.
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
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.
ok what do you think of the build I posted?
I would go with the cpu, get this, or this motherboard, and just go with the ram you selected and oc it a bit for good measure.
If no os or peripherals:
This looks basically perfect - as long you're someone who prefers the atx form factor.
You could surf all day on ebay for used and new variations of that asus board (option 3)
EDIT: Hold up, you want a z97 motherboard that supports ddr4 ram?
Yes we need to know this!
Also, what happened to the 1600x?
but why Haswell? That's like 2013
The 2600 has no igpu
Looks good, you could also do something like this:
Or go with a 2200g and upgrade to a 1060 or smth in the future.
Is there any reason why did you selected a haswell chip?
What will you be using the processors for? Gaming? Streaming? Video editing?
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.
I mean if money isn't an issue, 2080 ti sli is an option.
For a case, I kinda dig this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/dgndnQ/
You're welcome - I'll try to respond if you have any more questions.
Because it's just $5 more idk
Ok it's a great parts list, like Mr. Battlefield said - most changes would be nit picky at this point. Good job.
Do you already own the gpu or do you need to buy it?
