Forum Topic "intel --> Ryzen"

LightningProd 1 point 1 day ago

The general advice on PCPP is to buy a Ryzen 5 1600 from MicroCenter ($50 with a motherboard) and a good X470 motherboard if you're planning on getting 3rd gen Ryzen. But for your uses, a 2700x should do good (and you might not need to upgrade to 3rd gen).

I'd say it would do very well, it has a 16 thread CPU and a powerful GPU.

Forum Topic "first build. advice wanted!"

LightningProd 1 point 2 days ago

To address your concerns:

  • Gigabyte Windforce GPU's should be good, they are somewhat cheap for 2070's and 2080's and have much higher clock speeds.
  • The warning is that SATA ports will be disabled when an M.2 drive is used. This won't affect the performance of either drive. (It could be more cost-effective to buy a 1TB M.2 drive and dual boot. instead of installing them on separate drives.)
  • You shouldn't need to buy thermal paste, coolers usually come with a little thermal paste.

  • the i7-9700K isn't much more then the 8700k, and it has 2 more cores instead of hyperthreading.
  • I chose a 240mm water cooler instead of the 2 extra case fans, it should cool the CPU better.
  • DDR4-2133 is slow and not a good idea to purchase. Generally, you'll want at least 2666Mhz for Intel and 2933Mhz for AMD. I chose 3000Mhz because it was only a dollar more then 2133Mhz.
  • Much cheaper NVMe SSD
  • 2TB HDD. I've heard that Barracuda HDD's are generally good.
  • A good 2080 wasn't much more then a 2070, so I chose it instead.
  • The PSU has identical specs to the one you picked but is cheaper.
  • OEM Windows 10 Pro is a lot cheaper then the full edition.
  • Chose a better monitor, it has a higher resolution and 11 more FPS. 1440p @144-165Hz should be good to get all the performance out of the 2080.

The RAM, SSD, and PSU are cheaper, and I replaced the 1080p144 monitor with a 1440p165 monitor with G-Sync. (If you can't spend any more then $2370, you could downgrade the case from H700i to H500)

x16, x4, and x1 are the amount of lanes (more lanes = higher speed), so yes.

Almost all expansion cards are designed for x1 slots (and shouldn't benefit from x4), so havign the GPU on x16 and the adapter on x1 is the way to go.

The NVMe slot should disable the PCIe x4 slot and the 3 PCIe x1 slots, leaving you with only the x16 slot for a GPU. If you want to use CrossFire, a PCIe SSD, or an expansion card (like PCIe to USB or PCIe to SATA), then you would need to switch motherboards.

The SATA disabling should be fine, you aren't using any SATA HDD's/SSD's.

Is the monitor plugged into the motherboard or the GPU? The CPU doesn't have integrated graphics, so you have to plug it into the GPU to get something on the monitor.

Forum Topic "New Monitor"

If they were the same price, I'd go with the MSI monitor for the full G-Sync and smaller bezels. (Also, the ROG monitor has a lot of reviews saying they got a bad one)

Forum Topic "New Monitor"

LightningProd 1 point 9 days ago

I'd suggest the ROG Strix monitor because it is cheaper then the G-Sync 240hz monitor I first found, although it is only G-Sync compatible (not full G-Sync). Full G-Sync includes features like OCing and factory color calibrating, although OCing shouldn't be needed on a 240hz monitor.

Cheap 240hz monitor without G-Sync (but it does have Freesync, so it might be compatible with G-sync): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/nyMwrH/ ($270)
