Because all you need for 1080p is a 1060.

These parts will definitely last 5 years. However, what resolution will this pc be used at? Because if you're going to be just at 1080p, you'll be sitting comfortably with a gtx 1060.

Sure i guess it leaves a bit of an upgrade path. But imo if he wants an upgrade path, he should go for ryzen since they'll be using their socket for a couple of generations (rather than just 1)

yes i know that but it'll never get too loud on aa non ocable cpu. however, you can bring the temp a bit down and asthetics look better with a customer cpu cooler so not a big deal.

My bigger issue is the motherboard he selected.

Also if you go for a b360 mobo yo could get a 250gb ssd and a 1tb hdd or just a 500gb ssd.

You would need to swap out the gpu for a slower one. - And I don't think that would be worth it.

So at first, due to your budget, you'll probably need to stick with 2x4 (8)gb of ram until you can upgrade.

Np :) - by 'higher end psu', I meant higher quality. Also, the r5 1600 or 1700 is worth considering over the 2600 even though it's the last generation because you can get a b350 motherboard (which can still overclock) without worrying about it needing a bios update. Also, matx is worth considering since it's more portable and compact.

(tbh the reason I added the 1700 instead of the 1600 is because the 1700 comes with an rgb fan which will look really good behind the tempered glass).

Ok great!

  • I think this would be max performance even though it has 8gb of ram. However, in the future it would be worth getting the kit again so you can have 4x4gb of ram.

Before I recommend anything, what resolution will your monitor be at? Also I found the way you mentioned peripherals a bit confusing. Do you mean everything except the monitor, keyboard and mouse? Or everything except the monitor - just need the keyboard and mouse?

No problem. I realized ryzen g cpus would probably be better. Not as good as i3 + gtx 1050, but with ryzen you can simply sell the cpu later on and get a ryzen 2 cpu or something and a better gpu.

For AUD, I would definitely say it's a decend build for under a grand. However, I would consider waiting on the hard drive (or getting a 500gb one) and spending 15 more bucks or so on a better wifi card. - It would be nice to have one that you can hook up to the motherboard.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First Build, How Did I Do?"

I would go for the classic 1600 or 2600 and a b350 motherboard. If you get the 2600, make sure the b350 board is 'ryzen 2 ready.' You have a good point regarding the socket: http://www.tomshardware.com/answers/id-3383121/long-socket-am4-current-socket-type-amd.html And no, brands do not substantially affect performance in the 1050 ti market. However, regarding things like 1080s, if a brand fails to cool the card well, it might slightly under perform.

I would recommend getting the 8400 instead of the older 6600k. Also a 1070 is overkill for 1080p. Consider saving some cash and getting a 1060 or 580 or going for 1440p.

I don't believe going for the i7 2600 would be a smart way to go. In fact you could probably save money by selling it for $100 or something and getting the i3 8100 and a much cheaper motherboard.

I would recommend this: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/9q4NnQ/ for a psu. The supernova nex series are really good. But the g2s are about as good as it gets. If you ever want to check out how well-made a psu is check out johnnyguru's reviews on them. For example here's the article on the 650w g2: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story&reid=429 And here's the final score: http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=429

Yeah they're wrong when speaking solely of 1080p. If you were at 1440p, 8gb might help a bit. For example, here's a video comparing the two rx 480s: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JjTUtUF6gxg. Hope that helps!

Here's what I would change: -I would recommend an ssd. - No cooler, this is because the cpu comes with one. - No thermal compound the cooler that comes with the cpu has thermal compound already. - If you went for the i3 8100 then you could get a less expensive motherboard and $80 ram that would be at a slower frequency but that would be ok since ryzen cpus are more affected by slower frequency ram. (Note the i3 outperforms the 1300x which usually outperforms the 1400).

That's all - what do you think?
