that one guy who you work with isn't that smart then, though ryzen has slightly lower single core speeds (almost insignificant) which is only really useful in gaming, recently amd has been the price - performance kings. Ryzen is significantly better in workstation situations.

Suggested Changes

  • drop the ornata and get a k552
  • VS power supplies are bad, at minimum a cx would be in order
  • I'd avoid that motherboard, even though it looks nice the vrms are not that great
  • Masterbox 5 Has bad airflow, the gap isn't big enough to draw a decent amount of air
  • That ssd has no cache, in most circumstances that makes it slower than a 7200rpm hhd
  • Sadly you're gonna have to spend a bit more on a network adapter, minimum 35 normally to get a decent one

get a different ssd, samsung is more less a apple of ssds, seeing as you don't pay for the value but for the brand name, some decent ssds at a cheaper pricepoint are the mx500 by crucial or the L5 Lite 3D by Team Group.

the mx500 is the best ssd on the market for value, other than perhaps the l5 lite 3d, the tomohawk is potentially the best b450 board unless you want to go batshit for the pricing on a b450 board. 3000mhz is fast enough for almost all people, and most people can't even justify 6 cores so why look for more seeing as most chips at a more premium pricepoint utilize at least 8 cores these days.

Edit: sorry i went keyboard warrior, just got angry that my authority challenged.

1070ti's are a thing of the past at the moment, you'd save money getting a 2060 which also have improved performance (a bit). not to mention all 10 series stock from nvidia is depleting because they've stopped manufacturing, them causing the prices to be jacked up.

Most people can't even justify the 2600 (6 core) so why would you even go ahead with the 1800? (8 core). not to mention pairing such a high tier cpu with a 1050ti isn't a great idea.

  • to be honest, you could probably save some money on the k55, it's a mediocre board
  • unless you're ocing you can stick with the stock cooler
  • depending on the titles, you could probably do at least 1080p 144hz on medium

I'd suggest going onto the pcpp discord for further clarification.

when either a cpu or gpu is too powerful or not powerful enough for the other main component, thus dragging it down. The 1050 is not a powerful enough card for the 9600, it works both ways. Not just for the gpu

Seeing as the 2600 is equal to the 9600k in workload situations, and is 100 pounds cheaper i'd included that. With the stock cooler you can achieve minor overclocks equaling it to the 2600x. As well as that I have decided to add a 256 gb ssd for storage of files used more often, and a 2tb hhd for mass storage.

The pro carbon isn't worth it, versus the tomahawk which is undoubtedly the best value b450 board. As well as that the dark rock 4 is infamous for being a hella beefy air cooler, being a stronger alternative to most 120 mm aio. Excuse me if i'm wrong on that though.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Need a final opinion on my build."

I'm going to round off a few issues with the build and then carry on to make a list: The 1st gen ryzen chips allegedly had a few issues with internal temperature things, meaning you'd be better off 2nd gen The deathwidow is a $40 keyboard priced at 120 You could get a better value ssd (https://pcpartpicker.com/product/fgZFf7/crucial-mx500-500gb-m2-2280-solid-state-drive-ct500mx500ssd4) Unless you're overclocking you should be good with the stock cooler You could get cheaper ram if you do so wish, unless you're getting it strictly for the style of the heatspreader

Would there be any way you could get back to me on the certain model of the video card? Of course you don't need to if you don't want to.

the 10 series video cards are no longer being manufactured by nvidia. thus the price of the final stock being jacked up, it would be cheaper to get a 20 series card seeing as they're going to be supported by nvidia for a while.

the 1700 is too powerful for the 580, it's more tiered towards a 1080 if anything. the ideal cpu to be paired with the 580 if anything would be the R3 1300x. AAA titles are those which would actually be demanding on the hardware, for example Rise of the Tomb Raider. A game such as fortnite would not be a AAA title.

thing is though, the 1700 will bottleneck the rx 580, not allowing near enough performance as it should. Also if you're gonna be playing bigger titles the 1070 card would definitely be recommend, seeing as the 580 won't be good enough if you play anything along the line of AAA titles.
