You sir are one heck of a deal hunter! +1
Yup, for $2000 gaming pc 2070S is fine but 2080S would be great imho. Hence I said "should" not "must".
But what would you have done?
But what would you have done?
Since you're asking, then let me answer XD
I assume you paid as much as listed here (except the 2600x)
I agree that you should go with lower priced cpu, like 2600 ($120) or even 1600AF ($85) as I dont think the 2600x made sense unless you get it cheaper than other two I mentioned above.
The 1650 aren't the greatest value at $160 to put it mildly, should've gone for 1650S for the same price. I'm a sucker for b450 tomahawk so I would've choose that instead. For $150 you could have a cheaper 1tb SSD with a 2tb HDD.
A mesh version of the P400 I think will give a better front panel visual with those fan installed. But before that, if you could afford those fans then you should consider getting a minimum 80+ Bronze or even Gold PSU. Some non modular gold one can be as low as $55. Because as I understand it better efficiency needs better component thus hopefully a more reliable psu.
Great build! It looks stunningly beautiful! Congratulations!
Nice clean build!
Tho I'm curious at how much you really paid for the parts coz the list's pricing are not that cheap to be a bargain tbh.
I'll just say it: get an ssd.
Nice build! I think it is better to stick with single 360 rad at the top on that case, as having another in the front could potentially choke your intake.
Great value build! You sure strike a great deal on that 580 and hdd.
I wonder where you lived and when exactly did you build this pc. Those price in the list are just off the chart, either you build it in 2017 or you lived somewhere in which pc part pricing are ridiculous like where I live.
I see, gotta agree that it looks great
Great value build!
But I have to say that 500Gb NVMe for $99 listed here are a bit too much for a value oriented choice IMO, so I hope you paid less than that.
Great build! That is some excellent cable management going on! Also props on the rational of the hardware! That is a very well balanced pc for your purposes!
That being said, I hope you paid less than $130 for the power supply cause thats a bit too much IMO.
Nice build! Altho I do hope for some parts you paid less than what's listed here; namely your case, hdd, and clc. I also dont think you will need 32 gb of ram for the game that you mentioned in the description, even basic creative works doesn't need that much ram as far as I know. It would serve your gaming needs better if you get faster speed and tighter timing memory instead.
It might be overkill, but your component are pretty well balanced! Nice job!
800$ including the PC and accessories
800$ including the PC and accessories
You meant to say that your tower with monitor, mouse, keyboard etc costs 800 total? That is a great bargain!
Great build, man! Have you thrown a Kame-hame-ha at that puppy to see if its holds up?
That is a great clean build!
May I know your primary usage for this pc? Because I think an NH-D15 are a bit overkill for a 2600 and instead you could get a 2060 if you primarily gaming or a 2700x / 3600 if you primarily doing creative work on this pc.
Ah, I see you are a man of culture as well
That is a great, clean build!
Gotta agree that the helios 300, especially ones that configured as yours are one of the best value right now. That is if you can get one at around 1000-1200 USD, shame it is priced at ~$1800 in my place.
Just curious, if you can actually buy a larger battery model for that puppy, will you still getting this model with added internal storage instead?
Great build with great value! You sure nail the fine balance between gaming and productivity.
That being said, I think it will help aesthetic quite a bit by choosing a black themed card instead.
Your case has a PSU shroud and I dont see any custom cables in your partlist so non or semi modular PSU with good stock cable should do, they usually cost around 70 bucks for gold 600+. Heck I even saw an evga gold 650 full modular for 70 bucks here in PCPP.
I dont see you have any other expansion card, so a b450 (cough tomahawk max) motherboard should do just fine. That is $50 price reduction.
So adding it up you could get a 2070S for similar budget, or possibly a 3700x if you strech your budget by around $10 and if you value more core count for productivity as I see you have 32gb of ram. Again, all of my prices reference are PCPP pricing.
You're welcome. Thank you for listening and trying to be a better person.
Great build, senpai!
Nice build! Your cable management could be better IMO.
Also, if you are gaming at 60hz then honestly you can save even more bucks by getting 2600 and cheaper ram. Other than that, your component selection are well balanced IMO.
It is at LEAST a mid-tier. Sure you can say it is subjective, but then there are a lot of people who saw this as their dream machine. Please be grateful, not every person who wants their own computer can simply get one.
Dont make the sky as your only comparison, it is simply endless and you might fell while you're busy looking up above.
You sure very lucky to get the cpu and mobo at that price, altho your 2070S and PSU are a bit too expensive IMO. I'm suprised that stock cooler could maintain 60c under load, any plan to OC? Also what monitor are you using rn?
Great build! It looks gorgeous!
Although I wonder why you didn't opt'd for 2080ti for that kind of budget.
Great build! That friend of yours must be really happy right now.
Even tho it is only one picture, I can imagine how beautiful this build is.
But still, for $1700 tower (assuming thats what you paid for), you should get at least 2070S and 3700X if you going for AMD which is a 8/16 CPU. You can even go for 2080S if you really toned down everything else by another notch.
But as long as you're happy with it then I guess that's good enough, isn't it? Cheers!
I think you should avoid 5600xt for the time being, simply because all the bios update thingy and unstability issues. 2060 at $300 would have much better value imho.
Nice build for your first!
I think for your first build you should pick a more cable management friendly case, this one sure have a gap at the top (presumably for rad) that expose your cable a bit too much. Not to mention it's a bit on the expensive side as well. I also have to say that you might paid a bit too much there for a 1660S at $260 and for your psu. You could easily get a 2060 if you opt'd for cheaper case and psu.
But as long as you're happy then none of that matters. Cheers!
I see, that budget make more sense for 2070S
Pretty sure there is white themed 2080S, isnt it? White case are not uncommon either.
Great build with great story!
I hope you paid less for the 2060 than listed here, considering a 2060 can be as low as 300. Also, for PC building I think the best way to shop are all at once when new hardware arrive, just to avoid buyers remorse of getting your parts obsolete or getting much cheaper when you're halfway done.
I hope you paid less for the 2060 than listed here, because $370 are frighteningly close to 2060S.
Great build! It looks spectacular!
Although for $1800 you should be able to get 2080S and 1TB of nvme IMHO.
Great build! I really dig your hardware composition. 2070S really is the most expensive card that still have reasonable value.
Out of topic, but I guess you really enjoy a good view of sunset from that room isn't it? Referring to pic#2.
Uhh, any chance you could post the picture of your PC's gut?
Although I think you spend a bit too much for the psu, ram, and case of that class, assuming price listed are what you paid. You should be better off getting a 1tb nvme instead.
I'm pretty sure that is a GPU anti-sag thing, not another GPU in the 1st pic.
Great build, although I would call it beautiful TBH. LOL.
I can only see a single case fan in the rear which I assume is for exhaust. Care to share the temps?
Great build! It sure looks fantastic!
But I think you paid a little bit too much there for a 2070S, a psu, and a 32GB kit of ram, assuming price listed are what you paid for. You should be getting a better cooling instead IMHO, and / or upgde to 2080S by going for cheaper RAM and PSU.
Of course I dont know which one is your old parts, so yeah. Cheers!
Although I sincerely think it will be better at this price point if you forego the cosmetic (node pro and vengeance ram) and getting a 3600 instead, assuming listed price here are what you paid for.
Great build for your first time!
Altough I do feel like your motherboard and psu choice are a bit too expensive, assuming the prices on the list are what you paid. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I though you supposed to get that cool as stock cooler for 2700x.
