That pc would be terrible for gaming, especially since there isn't a gpu. I would definitely recommend going used for your budget. Getting a used system(actually pc) for about 75-100 with at least an i5-2400, or any cpu that came after that was an i5 or i7. If there are any missing parts, like the drives, harddrives can be found for cheap. Lastly, you could always try getting a used 1050/1050ti, or a gpu even older, like an r7 290.
its a pc
I would recommend at least a 120 hz 1080p monitor for your pc specs.
Really Good pc! I really like how upgradeable and futer-proof this pc is.
7700k, or 8700k?
So you haven't done any overclocks?
My question is, how did you get such a hefty overclock on that 120 mm cooler? I would recommend you make sure your voltage is above the recommended amount and check your temperatures.
well it is a very good system in terms of upgradeability. He has a very good cpu, so an upgrade to even a 2080ti would not bottleneck the cpu, and he has a very good quality and high rating powersupply. He has 32 gb of ram, so he won't need to upgrade that for at least 4 years.
That is such an unnecessarily expensive pc but I love it!
And what would that be?
Like gaming, editing, streaming, schoolwork?
So what is the main use of the pc?
I like how you chose that APU. It definitely serves you well for what it used for.
That is one of the most clean pc's i have seen in a long time! +1
Well, giving him an rx 570 would have been cheaper, and is nearly 2 times more powerful, but you have him a very good pc. +1
Thank you for your information. 4 cores seems to be plenty.
This is such a beast of a pc. I think a feature is coming your way soon. +1
Lol all those dislikes. What I was saying is that to take his gaming and streaming to the next level, he could upgrade to a cpu with more cores.
so a graphics card isn't necessary for the systems use?
so why such a terrible gpu?
All that is left is a cpu upgrade an you got yourself a killer system for gaming and streaming.
how is the case?
What is the cpu clocked at? I will be honest, the Alphacool is not aesthetically pleasing, but it seems to do its job well.
I like how your sticking to 7700k. It is still a really solid cpu for gaming and most things. When the time comes, you can upgrade.
I wouldn't call it imbalanced. I mean he did spend a lot on the cpu, especially since the cpu costs more than that gpu! But, the 1060 is a very capable card, so it isn't going to be a bottleneck in any way.
What is your job?
How long did it take to save up for this?
A CPU upgrade would be good, but the pc is still a beas
Nice build for the price! +1
Not to mention that there are evga motherboards if you wanted to go all evga.... Lol.
really sweet pc. Good job on the cable management! +1
Beautiful build that is very nicely done. The only thing I would recommend is trying to vertically mount your gpu, as that way you can show off the rgb that it comes with. If thermals get too high on the gpu, then just put it in the default orientation.
I will be honest, for the price point, you don't have the best performance possible, due to your cpu. You should have spent less money on the power supply, ram (8gb is enough for games), and the motherboard choice is not very smart. You could have had the ryzen 5 2600, which would likely get you about 90 fps on high settings on PUBG, and triple digit fps in fortnite. Nonetheless, the system is easily upgradeable, thanks to your psu and motherboard. Next, you really need to upgrade with an SSD, and a better cpu.
Thats a nice pc. What is the clock on that Threadripper?
what are you planning on replacing the rx 560 with?
ya, a 1080ti blows the rx vega 64 out of the water, which was the most high end graphics card from both companies. We will just have to wait and see how AMD's new graphics cards compare to the 1080ti.
so which hardrive is the boot drive ;)
ya, it can be found in almost any monitor for cheap. G-sync monitors start at like 300 dollars.
Trust me, even a 600 watt psu would not be overkill.
I have to add on to that. A 1060 is a beast of a graphics card. But as of now, I would recommend an rx 580 instead, as it is a beast as well, with similar performance, but at a lower price.
Its epic but you need to upgrade the monitor to take advantage of such high end hardware. Its looks great!
I would say that before you upgrade to an rx 580 or higher, I would upgrade the power supply with a higher wattage. Amd cards use and require a lot more power then their nvidia counterparts.
Dragon Warrior, i accept your opinion. But the cpu won't be working at the frequencies he wants the cpu to run at, while staying at 85 degrees.
Beautiful setup! +1
Could you mention what monitors your using?
Well that is the main problem. The cpu can throttle at those high temperatures, and end up performing worse.
Nice build. Could you post more pictures?
battlefield 1 is really cpu dependent, not gpu.
Well what game do you play? With your gpu, you can get some really good fps on at least medium settings at 1080p. I feel that the cpu might be the bottleneck in the system.
i beg to differ. The 1050ti is very similar in performance to the 670, and the 1050ti is a really good gpu for 1080p gaming.
i would say that you tone it down a bit on the overclocks on the Vega 11 chip. You should try to stay under 75 degrees for your cpu.
