you can reduce hdd to 500gb if the extra 17 dollars is a real problem.

if you also want some production value in your cpu you should consider switching to ryzen

press the pcpartpicker icon above your partlist to create a nice formatted list that you can copy paste onto forums, don't have to go through all of the pain of writing manually. if you are going 1080p then something thats 900 dollars could easily kick ***. you're only doing gaming so you don't really need the 1600x, you could slightly downgrade your graphics card, and get a smaller ssd and a 1tb hdd and you'd probably be able to cut off a lot of money.

  1. Noice.

  2. AMD is legit kicking the *** out of intel right now. the only thing intel has on AMD is its G4560. To be honest, if the refresh rate of the monitor he's getting is below 100Hz it might not even matter which cpu he gets with the GTX 1080ti. the 1070 is already satisfactory with 1440p, so he's going to get well over 60fps with the 1080ti, might not even see the extra frames with anything below 100Hz. It'd be a cheaper better solution if he went with any of the Ryzen equivalents of i7.

(i realize i was very bad with phrasing at #2..

7700k is slightly better than r7 at gaming, so he'll get a 5-10 fps lead with the 7700k, but the 1080ti will kick ass either way, with a screen under 100Hz, he might not even see the extra fps.)

  1. Motherboard is honestly fine! Will work perfect with windows 10! (it might not if you get it used off of someone who bought it before the release of windows 10.)

  2. May I ask why he doesn't want to go Ryzen?

  3. What resolution is your friend's monitor?

  4. 1tb ssd? thats pretty hot

its not that great at video editing, processing, cpu heavy games.. etc.

the fx series are the lineup of processors that were meant to be successors to amd's athlon and phenoms, and try to combat some of intel's cpu's at that time. they gave intel some competition, fx series usage died out, and now most people use ryzen if they choose to buy amd :p

  1. yep!

  2. the fx series in general overheats very easily, its warmth made itself a meme, :p. its clockspeed and classification as a 8 core def improves the fps in games, but there's a reason why its half the price of the 7600k, and that's because of its dysfunction in production and lower fps boosts. (4-5 fps compared to the g4560, with only 800 aud budget i can probably assume the screen you own is 1080p at 60Hz, so with that 1050ti the extra 4-5 fps would be a minimal increase that you wouldn't notice.)

they don't get a notification if you don't directly respond to your message, because if you comment in your own thread it counts as another suggestion to your own question.

the pentium g4560 has 2 threads 2 cores, so it basically acts the same as your average four core. it's also more recent and it's (somewhat) relevant to the lesser i5's, including the 7400!

"Some Intel H110 chipset motherboards may need a BIOS update prior to using Kaby Lake-S CPUs. Upgrading the BIOS may require a different CPU that is supported by older BIOS revisions." if you go to your local hardware electronics shop you'll be able to flash your mobo for 20 bucks. the mobo might already be shipped with a bios flash, or it might not work :p

the cpu will burn down your house with the 212 evo while giving you a 4 fps boost

the motherboard is as old as the local grocery store

your ram is in the lower end range of the lower end range

and oh my god the g4560 is 20 euro more expensive than it should be :p

if you have the extra money to buy a low tier ryzen 5 it might be worth it if only for the production value, in example, if you wanted to do video editing, processing, rendering, and/or playing cpu heavy games along with your average genres, then i'd suggest getting the ryzen 5. but if you plan to only do gaming, then the pentium would do.

the g4560 has a stock cooler that comes with it. case comes with a few fans too :p with the extra 20 bucks you have i'd either invest more in the case, and you can get a cheaper 560 to get some case fans or rgb.

ram is terrible, cpu and motherboard need an upgrade too. i'd recommend grabbing a ryzen 1600/1700, the best price to performance ratio am4 motherboard you can find on the market, and any cheap 16gb kit of ram that's at least 2400 memory speed.

minecraft is not heavy at all, just get

  1. GTX 1050 ti

  2. Pentium G4560

  3. DDR4 8 GB RAM minimum

and you should be set for 144fps gameplay with explosions around you and be able to play any other game should you decide to expand into other genres.

i think you'd be able to downgrade the psu, get an inactivated version of windows on microsoft website (or pay less for the 64 bit version), and go for a 1TB hard drive and upgrade to 2TB or SSD later.

(if you wanted you'd also be able to cut corners on the cpu by going 1400 and overclocking that 1400 to match 1500x, but i didn't include it in the list because it would have a major impact on performance.)

unplug power outlet and press the power button a couple times to discharge.

plug and unplug all of the cables that are connected to your moniter, check if you're missing any power supply connections, or mismatched connections, plug your power outlet back in, and see if it turns on correctly.

if it doesn't you may want to go on to another computer and check compatibility of all parts manually.

i would rather just overclock the 1400 to 1 up its intel counterparts than pay the premium to overclock those intel cpus.

didn't think much about the psu, it works and it won't explode. + full modular psu's are a bit expensive, and i wanted to stay in the midrange of their budget.

you would probably be better off with a 16 gb kit of RAM in the future, and a newer generation gpu like the gtx 1060 that will have longer lasting driver support, newer technologies, and be better + cheaper.
