I have been making part lists for the past week and just cant seem to settle on one setup. Now I am upping my budget to $1500. Looking for help building a PC that will be used for everything (some gaming, graphics, streaming, etc). I want a white and black theme. Please include Windows 10 Home and a monitor within the budget. Also all white cables and liquid cooling.

Oh my bad let me try again! lol

What do you want out of your monitor? Like response time and refresh rate and stuff? Any specific budget for the monitor its self

Just a decent 24" - 27" monitor will do

Could you by chance increase your budget by $100? Then just get some cable mod cables or cable extensions

The reviews on that 390 don't sound too good.

-Runs very hot, with idle temps at between 55 and 60 C, and Stress temps closer to 70 and 75 C -Fans are most certainly NOT 0 db, and scream when under stress. -Coil whine is ridiculous. I can hear it over some gameplay, even with a noise-cancelling headset.

I don't know what is causing the issue but anytime I try and shutdown my PC it automatically restarts, this problem had not occurred until I installed the new GPU.

Have the shut down issue and cant get it resolved. Have a $300 dollar card that wont shut off, seems like a pretty big product problem that there is no answer for.

Never turns off. Sometimes won't come back on

hot and LOUD. seriously sounds like a microwave.

Yea not many 390's to choose from to fit that particular build idea (aesthetically and physically). Perhaps the non-G1 version would be better. Wonder what happened here with Gigabyte on their 390's. Really dropped the ball. Giga G1 editions are usually top notch stuff.

Yucky NEX.

A lot about it.

Q: Why shouldn't I get an EVGA NEX 650W Gold?

A: Because the 5V ripple comes close to going out of ATX spec under load, along with the 3.3v's bad voltage regulation and 12v's average voltage regulation. For a few dollars more you can get a significantly better Seasonic SSR-650RM at the sacrifice of full modularity or a somewhat better EVGA 750W B2. So the NEX 650W Gold is overpriced for the quality it offers.

As that comment said a Seasonic G 650w.
