Pc for gaming and possible streaming

Ezgl

I’m not streaming yet but might be in the future. I will mainly play csgo but might play other games. I know this is overkill. Any opinions?

Budget? Monitor resolution? FPS target? What other games? (Big difference between csgo and say crisis 3)

Budget: around 1.5k

Monitor res: 1080

FPS target: 300+ on best settings (not just for cs)

Other games: r6, gta 5, maybe a few others, mainly csgo tho

  1. Get a EVGA G3 or Seasonic Focus gold psu instead.
  2. Get a Dark Rock PRO 4 cooler instead of liquid (you will thank me later for this)
  3. You can get better or cheaper memory, have a look around.

Overall, you have made good choices.

Alright, thanks. Do you have any ram in mind?

Also wouldn’t an aio be much better for OCing?

Not really. The only way to outperform large air coolers is with a 360mm AIO, which honestly aren't worth the cost associated with them.

Ah, thanks for your assistance.

Cosmin also recommended to choose different ram. Would the G.Skill Ripjaws V be good enough or should I pick something else? (It has pretty good reviews.)

I've used Ripjaws V a few times and have never had issues. If you're sold on RGB RAM modules you'll have to pay for them obviously.

Ah alright, is the Trident Z a lot better though, and is the extra $20 worth spending?

A good 280 mm AIO will also outperform large aircoolers for a decent amount less than the 360mm AIO. But for the most part a large aircooler is the best value for cooling, just dont expect it to get you a higher overclock than a 280 or 360mm AIO. In the end it comes down to if you want to squeeze out as much as you can out of your cpu regardless of value and aesthetics. AIO can very very sleek and sexy but the Dark Rock pro 4 is a very sexy tower cooler as well.

Wait for 3rd gen ryzen launch. You'll be able to get a better cpu for the same or actually lower price when they launch july 7. Just wait for the 3rd party reviews though.
