Ryzen 7 2700X/RTX 2060/1080p 60fps Build

Any tips to alter my part list or does it look fairly solid? This will be my 2nd PC build ever. I'm trying to stay around $1500 as I still have to get a gaming chair. What would you guys recommend for a solid gaming chair? Also in my notes it says that my NVME M.2 shares bandwidth with a SATA port do I need to worry about that? I don't plan on using any SATA SSD'S or HDD'S. I see that my MOBO has dual NVME M.2 slots so in the future if I need more storage than 1TB which I don't think I will unless game installs get absolutely massive then I will just grab a 2TB NVME M.2 drive.

  • Better quality keyboard and monitor
  • You don't really need NVME, unless you're pushing large files through the PC, and it isn't really cost effective (when it comes to mass storage)

M.2/SATA-disabling: You've got 6 SATA ports available, 2 will disable with the M.2 SSD (this is normal) and you still have 4 available for a ton of more storage in the long run. Just check the mobo manual to see which SATA ports are disabled are avoid them when installing additional storage devices.

You can do way better than 60fps with your parts list or the below setup. With a 144hz refresh rate panel in the bag, the RTX 2060 is capable of hitting 144fps or averaging around 90-120fps in demanding games on top quality settings. Speaking of displays, swapped this out for a VA-144hz MSI panel. This ones GSYNC compatible for butter smooth frames + elimination of screen tearing/judder/etc.

If gaming is the only purpose at hand (not streaming or running other multi-core/multi-threaded workloads), consider a faster single threaded i5-9600K. The faster the cores the better the gaming performance + greater sustainability and performance increase with in-game down-scalability.

I had the ryzen 7 2700x selected as I want to stream on this PC I was told that this is the best price to performance cpu to get in order to stream from the same pc I am gaming on as the i7 processor's and i9-9900k are 100s more expensive than the 2700x. I have also been told that I should get an 8 core cpu if wanting to stream as the 8 cores vs 6 cores is better for streaming. Then again couldn't I use the new technology integrated into the rtx cards nvenc to stream on obs or would that hurt my game performance? If I could use the nvenc without massive frame dropping then I would get the 9600k as I won't be gaming in 1440p or 4k and intel cpu's produce higher fps because of the faster single core performance. I just don't want a choppy stream and I heard that 6 core 6 thread cpu's will produce an unwatchable 1080p stream.

A 2700X should be fine for streaming 60fps 1080p, especially with the extra cores and threads of ryzen. Ryzen is also a much better price to performance than Intel. I’m going with a 2600X myself.

For streaming and gaming simultaneously, definitely stick with Ryzen 2700X as the i5s/i7s will trade blows.

Graphics encoding (nvenc) will affect games from maxing out with preferred visual quality presets (affecting FPS too, although limiters can be applied). CPU encoding (x264) with an 8-core multi-threaded 2700X offers plenty of processing power with lesser CPU-bound performance hits, making for the better and faster bitrate render solution.

Bottom line, if you want high-quality streams, x264 is the way to go and the 2700X delivers with little compromise.

By comparison, when analysing gaming performance, both the 2700X and i5-9600K are not that much different from a real-world observable perspective. The i5 at stock will possibly allow for an average of 5-10fps more in games, something the naked eye is oblivious to. Hence not much is lost in terms of gaming performance as your setup with a 2700X and an RTX 2060 is easily capable of playing demanding games above the 90fps mark (scalable to 120fps depending on game/settings). Where the 2700X outperforms the i5 (very noticeably) is those extraordinary 8 physical cores with 30% additional SMT performance for a fraction of the cost when compared to a similar structured alternative from intel (i9-9900K). At this point nvenc is pointless, unless OBS dedicated specifics can partially/less-collectively make use of GPU encoding practices at a minimum whilst maintaining the CPU X264 encode principle as the primary.

The 2700X back in action:

I will be doing my build with the 2700X and using x264 on obs. Thank you for the detailed and in depth feedback even though I have built a gaming pc before I don't know much about pc technology but I am slowly learning.

I was meaning to suggest earlier - with the total cost brought down around $70, it would be a good opportunity to put some of those proceeds towards additional case fans. It's not entirely necessary considering the case already comes with 2 pre-installed fans but judging by your case choice I'm assuming you're all about "airflow" efficiency (me too).

Maybe x2 of these PWM 140mm ones: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/byjJ7P/arctic-p14-pwm-728-cfm-140mm-fan-acfan00124a

there are more premium units available but these do the job just fine at a minimal cost. I have the same case and mounted the 2 pre-installed fans on the rear and top for exhaust and purchased 2 additional 140mm ones for intake at the front. Makes for a solid air volume shift with the front mesh!

I will definitely consider additional case fans as I chose this case based off of people saying it had great airflow because of the mesh on the front of the case.
