Need a adapter just to run the monitors.

They fit but you need to buy faster 3000 memory not 2400 to help the processor performance.

The case only comes with one fan so you need to add a couple for the front of the case.

Most people don't need a extra USB, and a cheap sound card is really no better than built in sound.

32GB of memory for just about 25 bucks more than the 16gb you listed.

2 IPS monitors.

If your going for the white LED then move the original front fan to the top back blowing out and add 2X 140mm to the front.

The coding program is also going to use your processor so unless your using close to the 16GB now their no reason to add more. If you can game and code at the same time your a much better man than me!!!!!!!!!!!

adding another pair to your existing ram can make it run slower as the two kinds are slightly different

Not if you set the timings and speed the same, very bad information.

https://be.pcpartpicker.com/product/nL7v6h/fractal-design-meshify-c-tg-atx-mid-tower-case-fd-ca-mesh-c-bko-tgl

Those cases only come with one front fan and one back fan so add 2 X 120mm fans to the front.

@1080p that your playing the 2070 should be all you need.

Video cards are not the place to try to future proof. you will need to upgrade the card in a few years anyhow. The cards released in a couple years will just spank the cards out today.

The i5 9600K is still the king of pure gaming, much faster than a AMD 2600.

About 22% faster till you get past 6 cores that gaming don't do.

Saves you over 100 bucks and the RTX 2060 has a bit better performance than the 1070. You could up the SSD size to hold all your games.

You need to add 2X 140mm fans to the front of the case.

Overkill on the power supply but will allow for overlocking and upgrades.

It's old and probably not enough for that processor under load.

Adds just a bit to the price after you add the fans to your price but adds the tt RGB fans everywhere in the case and on the cooler.

You have a 7 year old processor and a old video card. The processor was not really good when released.

Personally I don't think the 2080ti is worth the extra money but your free to add one they are having a rather high fail rate depending on what memory comes with it. This is way under your budget so plenty of money left.

Case comes down to what you like and you can adjust the storage as needed.

For the best streaming experience you need a dedicated gaming, editing, rendering PC and a dedicated streaming PC or it will kill your performance.

The 3000 has better timings so really no difference.

And you can always make it cheaper.

Their not worth the extra money for nothing when you can OC to the exact level. Their nothing else to discuses. I could care less if their binned when they had to add 30 watts to clock it at the 0.3ghz faster speed.

Why would the need to add 30 Watts for 0.2 base and 0.3 turbo increase.??

The much lower priced 2600 is the better buy between the 2 nothing you can even say about that.

Their tested but still better bin is questionable since the can both only do the same thing. Having to add a extra 0.04 volts to get the same overclock is not really what I would call better binned.

If you look at the specks they had to go from 65 watts for the 2600 to 95 watts to the 2600X just to get a extra 0.3ghz.

Don't think that is better binned it's just AMD crap to make more money. Reminds me of the 8350 125 watt. and 9xxx with their massive 220 watt power draw.

Better bin is questionable since the 2600 and 2600X both hit the overclock wall in about the same spot.

Im also maybe getting into streaming, so thats why I looked into the ryzen cpu's.

That puts you in a bad place. If you don't get into streaming your cheating yourself out of better performance not getting the i5, if you get the i5 and get into streaming then your screwed again.

Streaming CPU R7 2700 or 2700X don't get the 2600. Better off spending the money for what you need now instead of be disappointed and buy another processor

For the 0.1 faster clock speed of course!

The only stupid question is the one you don't ask if you don't know. My favorite saying. "I have never heard a stupid question BUT I have heard a lot of stupid answers".

Yes you can but No you cant.

You will need to reinstall windows with a motherboard change.

If your board is working their no reason to buy a B450 they will be no performance change at all. That PSU although not the best quality is fine for the build you have.

Yes a video card.

If you notice what you need depends on the size of the project so without more information hard to say. Up to even 128GB of memory.

Also the 3 poster says this.

processor with at least 4 cores (each product of the current ANSYS product line uses 4 cores with no additional charge. Additional cores can be utilized with HPC licenses).
