Gotta be honest with you, this is my first build and I didn’t go into a lot of detail tuning it, as I’m not entirely sure how to do all that. So, I have no idea what those things are that you’re asking for. Wanna explain how I would do that? Sorry, I’m a noob. As far as the RAM speed goes, I just went into the MSI command center (I think, or else I might’ve done it in the easy BIOS) and set it to the XMP Profile which runs the CPU faster and let me set the RAM to 3200.

It is note RGB, at least the one I have. There may be a different version, but I am not sure. It is red backlit, though, which matches my colors more, so I am okay with it. It is a very nice keyboard in my opinion.

I would recommend getting a dedicated GPU as soon as possible with whatever build you do. They are much more powerful than any integrated graphics can be. I have an MSI Nvidia 1070 Armor. It is a very good card for what I do. Most MSI cards will do good for you. Their 1050ti Aero ITX has good reviews and a great price. Just something to keep in mind.

This should work pretty good for you.

I prefer MSI for most components, so I changed the motherboard to an MSI one. I have the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC in my PC and love it. The BIOS is really easy to navigate and customize. I am not very familiar with Gigabyte. This particular board has good specs and supports some good options for upgrading later on.

I went through the compatibility list for the MOBO and picked out some Corsair RAM. I just like Corsair best and think it performs the best and is the best quality.

Switched to M.2 for the SSD. Only a couple dollars more and is more convenient to install... no SATA data/power cables to deal with.

Changes the case to a cheaper one to allow more budget for the internals. This is a really good case anyways. I used it and, for the price, it is really high quality. Cable management is pretty good and the durable feel is very reassuring.

More powerful, newer, and modular PSU. Great for future expansion and upgrades. I have the 750W version of this same PSU and it is built so well. I love Corsair.

Hope this helps you out. Take what you like from this build and apply it to your vision for your build. Good luck! Have fun building!

I adjusted a couple things for you.

First change you will notice is the RAM. I looked up the compatible RAM with this board and couldn't find the G.Skill sticks on there. So I replaced them with these Corsair Vengeance LPX sticks. According to the chart, these will be able to run at full speed too.

Next is the SSD. No real big reason for changing other than that I like Crucial and WD drives. It is entirely preference.

GPU change is kind of the same thing. I like MSI a lot, so I go for their parts more often than other brands.

PSU is a new model that is fully modular, so that is really handy. I have the 750W version of this PSU and it is really nice and high quality. My understanding is that you can't go wrong with Corsair products.

Hope this gives you some more ideas. Good luck!

As you can see, it is $80 more than I was wanting to pay and there isn't even a TENKEY. Since I do mostly video editing, and there are a lot of hotkeys in the TENKEY, I need a keyboard with that feature.
Have you got any cheaper suggestions?

I was steering away from Seagate. Several friends of mine have had multiple Seagate HDDs and they all died pretty quickly. I’ve also seen some negative reviews online for them. That drive doesn’t need to be crazy fast as it’s just storage. All my apps will be loading from the SSD.
The fans are a 4 pack. So they’re not really too expensive. I’ve gotten the case and like it a lot, plus don’t really want to go through the hassle of sending it back. But I’ll hang on to that tip for future builds. I hadn’t thought about it like that before. I'm a noob :P
I don’t really understand what you’re talking about for the RAM. What is a QVL list?
GPU was an EBay deal. Lightly used, so still with all the packaging and plug covers and such. I was really happy I got that.
Thanks for the tips!

Ok. No problem.
I am somewhat new to PCPP, so I am in the "honeymoon stage" as some might call it. I love designing new builds. I appreciate the challenge of tight budget builds. I am new to PC building in general, really. I have been ordering parts for my first build and should have them all by next week to build it.
Have a nice day, or night, or whatever time it is where you live!

I just looked back at his post, and I read the description of his uses and peripherals required wrong. LOL. It had rendering in the options for uses as well as the other peripherals in the list of options. In my defense his formatting was difficult to read.

Clear formatting:

Budget: $850
Location: US
Use: BO4/Fortnite/PubG/LoL
Peripherals required: Keyboard
Operating System required: Windows 10

BUT, instead of tearing my build up, why not just design one yourself? I don't build much and made some honest mistakes with that one. :P

If you can design a build he would like, then design it. Don't tear other peoples builds down and provide no alternative.

Thanks for clearing me up. I will now try a different build. Hopefully one that doesn't suck. :P

Since you are gaming, I went with an Intel processor. They have better single-core performance over Ryzen CPUs. This is overclockable on this board, I believe, so that should give you some flexibility in performance.
I got a well reviewed air cooler. You could definitely upgrade to liquid later on, if you wanted to.
I could not find black and blue components very much, so I got RGB ones that could be set to blue light. This is a good, powerful motherboard.
Good, blue, Corsair RAM. Nothing else to say really.
SSD, HDD combo. both WD Blue. I prefer WD over other brands. They are reliable, quality parts. Although you may find that a Samsung SSD performs better, I honestly don't know though.
Mid-priced 1080ti. MSI is a go-to for me on most components. They usually get good reviews and make good quality products. You may be able to remove the shell and paint some of the details blue for some cool custom looks. I am going to try that with my 1070 Armor GPU once it comes, but I am painting mine red.
Black and blue case! Good company and well reviewed model.
Good PSU. Good reviews.
Windows 10 because there's really nothing else to game on. :P
All that and still a little under budget, so you have some flexibility.

Went with an AMD CPU as they are generally a little better for rendering and that type of work yet still perform fine for gaming. If you could expand your budget a bit, you would see a huge improvement in the Ryzen 2600.
Cooler is included with the CPU and will do good for starting out.
MSI is my go-to for motherboards so I found a good, mid-range model of board for this build.
One 8GB stick of RAM, upgrade it to 16GB as soon as your budget allows.
I wanted to fit an SSD into this build, but just couldn't get it to work right and stay under budget. But this HDD will do good for you, for now.
MSI is also my go-to for GPUs. I don't really know why, but I just like them a lot. a 1050ti will get you started and will do good for you for a while.
Great case! just bought this for my own workstation build.
Good PSU. Don't skimp on this part of your build. If it fails, then the whole thing is cooked.
Windows 10 obviously.
Got one of the cheaper IPS panels I could find. Should work good for now.
Looked up Logitech keyboard and mouse and got some okay looking ones. They should get you by until you want something bigger and better. PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant

I chose an Intel build as that is better for gaming. Its single core performance is better than Ryzen by quite a margin.
The Cooler is well reviewed and price sensitive.
Motherboard is a good one. MSI get a lot of good reviews. I just bought the B450 Gaming Pro Carbon AC for my Ryzen workstation build and it is fantastic.
I got one stick of 16GB RAM so that you can eventually get three more and upgrade to 64GB if you want. If you don't ever see yourself using that much RAM then two sticks of 8GB RAM would be just fine and would have better initial performance, I believe, since it would run dual channel.
Good, cheap SSD for the OS. Good secondary storage drive. Some people like Seagate better since it is usiually cheaper, but I have had a lot of friends say, and seen some reviews say, that they fail much more frequently than WD.
I couldn't squeeze a 1080 in there with the budget, so I dropped down to a 1070. Still a good card, though. I just bought this for my workstation as well. 1080 would be an upgrade option in the future.
Great case, especially for the price. I just got this exact one. It feels really solid and has good cable management options.
Well reviewed, modular PSU.
Windows 10 Home OS, because is there really anything else? :P

I do editing and other multicore jobs myself so I aim towards Ryzen (more cores for less cost), but for gaming I think you probably have a good pick here.
If I were to change anything else here is what the build would look like:

While I have not used Gigabyte myself, I have heard a lot of people steering away from them. I honestly do not know why though, but I like MSI a lot. So I got a MSI board for you.
I might change the RAM. If you ever want to max out the capabilities of that board and CPU, then I would get 1 stick of 16GB ram instead of 2 8GB sticks. Then you will be able to fill all four slots and use all the potential of the CPU and MOBO. If you don't think you will ever need that though, then I would leave it like this.
Also, got a cheaper case that still has a tempered glass panel. I have the acrylic version and it is a fantastic case, especially for the price.
I also added a well reviewed, modular PSU with the excess left over from the cheaper case. You will appreciate that when it comes time for cable management.
Hope this helps!

I second this! I add it as a custom part, but it should be in the database anyways.

I use mostly external storage. The 2TB storage is temporary storage while I work on projects and then everything gets transferred to external RAID configurations. As far as the SSD goes it’s just running my OS and Software, I won’t be storing anything on it long term.

The SLI is mostly dreaming. I honestly don’t expect to be doing that very soon and won’t need it for a while.

I did read the article on PCs for C4D, but based the choice of CPU off of you explaining that you use other programs as well. I think overall, this will perform better than the 8700K. It’s single core performance is good anyways.

Check out this comparison:

http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-8700K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-TR-1950X/3937vs3932

The single core speed is not hugely slower for the 1950X compared to the 8700K. It has turbo that will boost it to a good single core speed.

I’ve not built big budget PCs before. But I’ve researched a lot as I am working on building my own workstation desktop.

Instead of the Intel i7 8700K, I chose an AMD Threadripper 1950X. It has many more cores which makes it much more powerful. In production based builds you need to look more at the multi core performance over the single core performance. Most production apps will be doing multiple processes at once which utilizes multiple cores at once, where games are generally played on one core.

I’ve heard good recommendations about this Cooler. But it would be a good idea to ask for others opinions on those. I’m not super knowledgeable there.

Motherboard is a well recommended TR4 mobo.

I put 64GB of RAM to get you started, it’s upgradeable to 128GB should you so desire.

OS drive is a well recommended, fast 1TB SSD.

Data Drive is also a popular brand large capacity 7200rpm HDD.

I added a second GPU for SLI since it was within budget.

I chose a popular, good looking, functional case. If you don’t like the black and red, there is an all black version as well.

PSUs are not my strongest knowledge point, so I would recommend asking for others opinions in that area. But I chose one based on recommendations I’d had in cheaper builds. There may be better options out there... probably are actually.

Windows 10 Home. Could do Pro if you so desired, there’s some flexibility in the budget left over.

I’d ask for recommendations on Case Fans to see if you want some additional ones in there.

I hope this at least gives you some ideas and helps your decision.

I don’t know your budget or currency, so I did a medium budget in U.S. Dollars.

The extra fans are to replace the ones on the radiator and the back of the case.

500GB SSD is a good in between place balancing capacity and value.

2TB HDD gives plenty of room for storage and the extra drive space and support from the motherboard will allow for future expansion.

I do 4K+ video editing, that's what the 16GB+ of RAM is for.

What fans would you recommend?

Thanks for the PSU tip. I hadn't even thought of that.

I feel like I've heard some negative feedback on the G2 and G3 PSU's. I could be entirely wrong though. A good alternative is the Seasonic Focus Plus Gold 550w.

Other than that (and that could even be completely wrong) the build looks really good. Although I also hear a lot of people prefer the Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM. But I hear the Ripjaws are good too.

Just because one has more ram than the other, does that mean it’ll be more powerful? How do I know I’m getting more horsepower for the price?

I know it’s way over budget and it’s only a 1060 3GB, but it’s the best I could come up with. There may be a cheaper Intel route, but I don’t know it. The only other thing I could recommend is going with a 1050 ti until you can upgrade to a 1070 ti later on (or 1170/2070 whatever is out next). I don’t know how feasible a good quality computer would be when half the price is a GPU and the budget is only $650 to begin with.

I think you should invest in the other stuff that you won’t be replacing soon and save up for the 1060 or whatever your choice would be.

If 144+ is super important to you, then cut back on the board and invest more in a 1070 ti or 1080 ti if you can find a discount on one. You could also cut back to a 250GB SSD to give a little more flexibility. I don’t know how well a 1060 would perform aiming for 144+. I’ve never used one. It may work though, you would just have to ask some more knowledgeable people than me. Good luck!

If it’s just the pc itself, no additional peripherals or monitors, this one could be okay. I am no expert designer though, I just saw 0 replies and tried to come up with something.

Obviously, the CPU is a very good one. Super powerful and well rated for gameplay.

The cooler is one that I’ve seen a lot of people using and enjoying quite well.

The Motherboard is also a popular pick to pair with this CPU. It has a bigger, better chipset than the average board. Upgradeable to 64GB RAM eventually, if you so desire.

The RAM I chose has good marks. A lot of people recommend that type. It’s also what you had listed above.

SSD for operating, 7200rpm HDD for fast storage.

Good card that should be able to get you to 1080@60+ easy, possibly even 120+fps.

Cheaper priced case that a lot of people really like. I’m planning on getting it for my own build. It’s got 5 fan mounts and I’d recommend getting 2 fans for the front and maybe another for exhaust out the back along with the included one.

Big, modular PSU that gives headroom for future upgrades.

I don’t know if this helps or not, for all I care you could throw the whole idea out as garbage. It’s my best try at something for you.
