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/

Comment reply on Forum Topic "How many fans does my motherboard support?"

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.

  • better RAM for a bit more (3800Mhz CL14 instead of 3600Mhz CL16)
  • not sure what the 2x drives are for, so I replaced it with a PCIe 4.0 drive (also adds 500GB more storage)
  • cheaper PSU

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.

  • better MB
  • slightly faster RAM for $5 less (if you don't want RGB, you can get a good DDR4-3600 RAM kit for $70 - just note that the max XMP speed on the MB is 3466Mhz, so you'll have to set it as an OC speed instead).
  • cheaper GPU (w/3 fans instead of 2 and slightly higher boost clocks)

  • cheaper PSU

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)

  • 2x the RAM (also faster and dual channel, because 2933Mhz+ dual channel RAM )
  • NVMe (faster) SSD with 2x the storage for $3 more (imo the 860 evo 250gb is a really bad deal because a similar preforming drive (MX500 250GB) is $17 cheaper)

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.

  • Ryzen CPU/motherboard
  • cheaper RAM
  • more HDD storage
  • NVMe SSD (also cheaper)
  • cheaper GPU
  • 80+ Gold PSU (imo it's a bad idea to buy an 80+ bronze PSU because there's almost always an 80+ gold PSU on sale for around $60-70)

Try this:

  1. Download Linux (Ubuntu or Mint, they both have GParted) and flash it onto a USB drive with a tool like Rufus.
  2. Boot the Linux USB and open GParted.
  3. Go to Device > New Patition Table, select gpt, and press OK. (This will erase the entire drive)
  4. Right click the empty space > New Parition > NTFS > OK, and then in the box that appears at the bottom: Right click > Apply All Operations > OK.

I used those steps to make a bricked USB drive work again, so it should work on an SSD.

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.

  • The 2700x comes with a stock LED cooler, so an aftermarket one shouldn't be needed
  • An X470 motherboard is a must have for a 2700x (because it adds extra features that makes the 2700x faster, such as Precision Boost Overdrive)
  • faster RAM for $1 more (3200Mhz is generally a minimum for an R5 2600x or R7 2700x)
  • cheaper SSD
  • better GPU (that will also have raytracing in the few games that support it)
  • more efficent PSU for slightly more
  • cheaper Blu-ray drive (It shouldn't be needed unless you watch (or burn) DVD/Blu-ray movies a lot, but I left it in the list in case you do)
  • 144hz monitor (the GPU should be able to play games in 1080p 144fps, so I added a monitor to match that)

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/

  • faster RAM (2933Mhz+ is needed for Ryzen)
  • cheaper/faster SSD
  • white PSU to match the white theme of the build

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).

  • At this point, I'd go Ryzen over Intel. Better value for money.
  • X470 motherboard
  • cheaper RAM
  • cheaper SSD (also NVMe)
  • I chose an RTX 2070 since you were unsure about the GPU and it fits best in your budget.

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.

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.
