Cheap yet still fast: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/pxKcCJ/ (If you are willing to order from the US I would strongly suggest getting this one instead: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07RCM6DXK/)
Also, if you haven't built the PC, I'd suggest getting a cheaper CPU and using the savings to get a 2700x instead of a 2700: https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/MsWfrH/ for the CPU and https://de.pcpartpicker.com/product/bddxFT/ for the CPU
It would improve the CPU speed as well so possibly.
Also, what is your CPU/GPU usage in game? It would help determine what is most worth upgrading.
I'd suggest getting a faster RAM kit like this one: https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mcH8TW/ (EDIT: It sold out seconds after I posted this.) https://pcpartpicker.com/product/z3VD4D/
It means that PCPP can't check if the CPU cooler will block the RAM slots.
You'll be fine with you current build, the Wraith Prism cooler isn't large enough to cover the RAM or the RAM slots.
Looks good imo. Only thing I would change is switching to a cheaper RAM kit like this one (unless you want to keep the first RAM kit for its looks): https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mcH8TW/
That MB has 2 fan headers (and 1 has to be used by the CPU fan). If you want to add more then 1 case fan (like you want to) you can use a fan splitter such as this one (2x 1 to 2, $7) or this other one (2x 1 to 5, $6).
If you haven't bought the parts yet I would suggest a more balanced list like the one mark5916 suggested.
$2 is a placeholder right now. (Saying why violates the CoC).
I didn't notice the RAM issue, thanks! I edited it to include a different RAM kit.
The 2070 will work fine with the 3600 and B450 MB.
I'd go with a modified version of the 1st list:
PCPartPicker Part List
What I changed:
afaik 2 fans is good but 3 fans is better (it's only the single fan GPU's that you want to avoid unless you're building in an SFF case). I don't have temp tests though.
I also thought I wouldn't need an SSD but I bought one anyways for a new PC and now I want to buy some for all the computers I have. Load times can (usually) be measured in milliseconds instead of seconds and even webpages load faster.
Costs slightly more but this is what I would change:
If the case hadn't been purchased yet I would have suggested a cheaper/smaller case instead (because you have an mATX motherboard and an somewhat expensive ATX case)
Slightly under 400:
Stretched to 450 (better CPU and MB):
Kinda suprised this worked tbh:
Slightly over, I hope that's fine.
or if CPU > RAM:
Without knowing what this PC is for, this is what I would change:
$20 more but a lot better:
If you need this list to be the same cost as your original list, you could swap the SSD for an MX500 250GB or the RAM for 2x4GB DDR4-3000 (instead of 2x8).
Costs a little bit more, but is a lot better:
VRAY's rendering engine won't run on an AMD GPU.
I would say to wait; with the RTX Super cards and 3rd gen Ryzen coming out, you could get the CPU/GPU cheaper or get better preformance for the same price.
Your part list is private but since the power button won't respond, it sounds like the mobo is DOA. Do any of the debug LED's light up?
Rumors say 10-15%. But the 3rd gen Ryzen CPU's should still be faster and cheaper.
Good/small/powerful 9900k+2080ti build that keeps the RGB down to two brands while staying just under $5000:
If you can wait until July 7th you can get a cheaper 9900k or a 3rd gen Ryzen CPU.
The RAM I picked is the same speed, and the SSD will be faster beause it is NVMe. The RAM I picked is also not tall, so the cooler should fit fine.
Can you recover them through TestDisk/PhotoRec?
It's almost the best you can buy, but this is what I would change:
I see it now
$100 cheaper while keeping the white theme:
I used those steps to make a bricked USB drive work again, so it should work on an SSD.
My best guess would be a RAM issue. Do you get any errors if you run memtest86+?
Total cost is somewhat over $1200 but it would be a good 1080p144 gaming PC. If you want to bring the cost down (closer to $1200) you could swap the case for a Thermaltake Core V1 and remove the speakers from the list.
For a confused mom it ended up a decent build list, although it would be improved without reaching the budget ceiling:
Also, are you going to need other peripherals besides a monitor (like a keyboard/mouse/headphones/speakers)? If so, I could add some inexpensive (yet still good) peripherals to the list.
It's a good deal for a Tab S3, most of the open box eBay listings for a Tab S3 are $30 more.
If you're wondering how well it would hold up: I have a Tab S2, it's a great tablet and can definitely handle gaming (I can usually get 45-60fps on medium settings in most mobile games) or movies (I've tested it up to 1440p60 and it didn't lag while watching videos). I'd get the Tab S3, but the only thing holding me back are the glass backing and that the Snapdragon 820 is only a quad core.
If you want to go to the top end of your budget, you can get a lightly used Galaxy Tab S4: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/113772990353
Or, if you can stretch your budget, you can get a new Tab S5e: https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B07QBB1YV1/
I improved the build, but I'm not sure where to start to lower the price down to $3000 again:
Unless he needs 64GB of RAM (for something like editing 8K videos) I'd suggest lowering the amount of ram to 32GB.
Since he wants custom cables, here's a good set that would fit the PSU and match the white theme: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07L66WTY7/
Almost all X470 motherboards should be compatible with Ryzen 3000, but might not support PCIe 4.0 (all X570 boards will support PCIe 4.0).
If you can wait until next month to build a PC, the Ryzen 3000 CPU's and Navi GPU's would be worth getting instead.
edit: it got featured! :D
No, Intel SSD's work normally with a AMD CPU.
These are the instant rebate deals if you don't want to look through the list for them:
Really old products:
Slightly cheaper and a lot better:
Oh. The PSU and GPU sales ended right after I posted the part list.
Better and $20 cheaper:
I've used WinDirStat a lot to find out where my storage is going. Helps if you have some large files or backups you forgot about.
If you want to use a cleaning program, Disk Cleanup comes with Windows 10 and can clean a lot of junk. Just remember to select "Clean up system files" when it asks you what you want to clean up.
