Hey pcpp, im looking for a new build that i will be able to stream to twitch and game on ONE computer. I have no favorite brands, Intel or AMD or Nvidia for anything, i dont care.

Some things i would like:

NVMe boot drive mATX Form factor (I already purchased the Thermaltake Versa H18 TG) 16GB of memory minimum, dual channel preferred. Modular power supply I do not need peripherals or a monitor, i have them already.

any suggestions are welcome! Please note: i already purchased the Thermaltake Versa H18 TG, so please use that case.

My budget is $1250 CAD or about $1000 USD.

NVMe boot drive

Why? It has no advantage over a decent SATA SSD when it comes to boot and load times.

Cause NVMe drives like the HP EX 920 are insanely cheap and also 2x faster than SATA ssds. Will pay the extra $20 for the NVME without an issue. Purely personal preference

They are not any faster when it comes to load and boot times which is really all that matters in a gaming build. Sure they are faster in synthetic benchmarks but that is not a realistic workload.

Why pay more for something that won't make any difference?

I’m liking the Vega card. And 3200MHz Ram, like it a lot. Will keep in mind. Why the WD Black nvme drive tho? There are cheaper ones and I’ve heard the 250gb model doesn’t perform as well.

PCPP can't tell between NVME and SATA m.2 drives, so idk

If you want to find nvme drives sort for “interface: M.2 M key”

RTX isn’t really a selling point for me, but I can’t deny it’s a good gpu in its own. Only issue here is the mobo, I would rather have 4 ram slots as I’m hoping to upgrade to 32gb eventually.

I game and stream from one PC and this here is my build. I want max performance and a quality stream so I play medium to low settings in all my games and it works amazing.

Love the rig, unfortunately I’m on a much tighter budget than that
