changed out a few things - Lesser wattage psu as 750w is overkill even for upgrades because components tend to just get more power efficient. - added a 500gb nvme ssd, nvme isn't really needed for gaming but it is extra speed for only a bit more compared to normal ssds -way better cooler so if you wanted to oc this should allow you to do so or at least stay quieter during load - cheaper ram so i could fit the better cooler but it will perform exactly the same - kept with intel as they perform a lot better then ryzen for benchmarks

lower price but way better performance - 2200g should be about the same performance as the i3 -16gb of ram and faster speed - bigger ssd and still nvme also mobo has a heatsink to help with temps - rx 570 runs circles around 1050 - case is kind of subjective but has mesh and an extra fan to help keep temps down

Little over 200 but it does support g sync so if you dont plan on upgrading the 2060 for a few years the g sync could help when the 2060 begins to not be as well at hitting the 144 fps mark while having things like settings maxed out

Assuming you wont be streaming and gaming then -Dropping to 9600k would just be better for gaming as most games cant use the extra 2 cores and threads - lowered wattage a bit as i think the 750w is a little unnecessary unless were talking about overclocking everything as hard as you can - Lowered ram to 3000mhz as the extra 200mhz really wont come in too handy

with money you save you could either grab another set of those corsair fans or whatever you wanted only changes i made were ones that appeared to be the best way to save some money

Your build uses pretty old parts and such prices went up. this build adds a psu that is same if not better quality and still being compact, better processor especially if he just wants to dabble in streaming as the extra cores will be more beneficial then 32gb of ram, bigger ssd and and nicer case imo but you could change this out

Forum Topic "Wanting opinion on power supply"

Peanut123 1 Build 1 point 16 days ago

Assuming your talking about the one that looks like a little grey box definitely not. the only model i find that runs like that is very old and id be surprised if it can actually even run at 350w as psus tend to lose the amount of power they can push out is less then like day 1. Not sure on your budget but id also maybe try to not get used psus unless they can prove it works and is not years old as a faulty psu could potentially take down the system or other things like ssds and hdds. to stay in efficiency and you want to upgrade a 550w would be pretty well for your system

Because you only have a 6 core and you dont want to oc id reccomend the asrock as the tomahawk has nicer vrms and cooling which is better for cpus like the 2700x and make sure you get the atx pro4 as the matx will look weird in a mid tower

Changed motherboard as it's out of stock and very overpriced where this asrock one is cheaper and most likely a way better power delivery for overclocking, changed ram to a slightly slower speed as on intel especially the extra 200mhz is pretty useless but still kept the rgb, dropped thermal paste as cooler comes with it, upgraded video card as 1440p will be harder on gpu so this build is $30 more then what you listed but the 2080 will be VERY faster compared to the 1070ti and i would recommend checking keyboards from https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/ here as anything $100+ and manufacturers tend to just add gimmicks to increase price whereas here they use higher quality parts for their keyboards manufacturers like ducky for instance are very good quality

Assuming you just want to upgrade every few years i would just reccomend going up to a 2080 as its comparable to a 1080ti and that card is still overkill for 1080p 144hz and should remain very good at that for the next few years as opposed to how your 970 is now comparable to a 1060 and then with the 350 punds you have left maybe use it later on for a cpu upgrade

$20 cheaper and got in an 8 core chip which will be a lot more helpful for streaming then 3600mhz ram. Also dropped psu as even during a full load you shouldnt pull more then 350w so a 650 will keep you in a nice efficency range. Also if that front part of the case is acryllic and there are only the small vents at the top you might be better off with like a p350x and adding in a fan or 2

Also please change out that motherboard. I never really recommend full atx cases as i think its wasted space considering sli is dead and that was a popular reason for them but combine that with an itx board and you might run into issues with front panel connectors and sata cables not being able to reach. for a few bucks extra https://pcpartpicker.com/product/TnhKHx/asrock-z390-taichi-atx-lga1151-motherboard-z390-taichi this motherboard should do well at overclocking the 9900k

Everything Justin said is correct the 2060 is pretty overkill for 1080p 60hz however if you never want to see it drop below 60 this will do that easily. Switched the i5 to the ryzen 5 as they perform roughly the same but it saves you about $30 which you could just save or put it torwards an aftermarket cooler and switching to dual channel for bf5 is especially important

If you wanted to save some money you have the satisfaction of being in the uk and getting the enthoo pro M for less then the h500 which is a nice looking case and you could then save money on fans as its has a mesh front panel or the p350x which has built in rgb and then order an rgb fan as exhuast

Included an rx 580 which should allow for maxing out or almost maxing out games at 1080p and getting 60fps. Swapped 2600x to 2600 as the only big difference is the extra few hundred mhz that could be reached by overclocking the the 2600 and the base clock boost really wont be too noticeable in gaming

Id reccomend dropping the aftermarket cooler it most likely isnt that worth it compared to the stock cooler and drop the ram to 3000mz as the extra 200mhz isnt noticeable in 99% of games just some ways to save some money if you cared to

The build itself seems good but i caution you that the 85 in rebates isn't really the best thing in the world as a lot of companies tend to take a while in sending the money so you tend to have to call and email a lot for them to send it

Need to know more info like budget and use case (gaming, gaming&streaming, work like virtual machines or editing) but assuming you just want to game id recommend a different ssd thats up to date as the 850 evo is older and more expensive so i would recommend an 860 evo as the speeds of pro and nvme rent really worth it for gaming, corsair mice seem to be pretty hit or miss on being liked so me personally i recommend the g403 or g502 if you like the extra weight, and for that much money on a keyboard id maybe look at keyboards from like https://mechanicalkeyboards.com/ as spending $100+ and companies tend to just make their value go up by adding gimmicks where as keyboards on the site i listed will use higher quality pieces but if you want to have an ecosystem like only using corsair/ razer/ logitech i can understand that

You almost have $100 in MIR dont think this really counts as hitting the 1300 mark when companies typically take months to send the money back

about $5 more but i fit in a mech keyboard and 16gb of ram which will help for upgrading purposes as now when u want to ujpgrade all you have to do is upgrade the cpu before gpu. I swapped your keyboard with a mechanical one which feel a lot better then membrame ones which is what you picked however it sacrifices RGB for red leds so if you value rgb you can swap it out however i definitely reccomend mechanical keyboards over normal ones

Edit if you do value rgb https://pcpartpicker.com/product/pJdFf7/hcman-hcman-h01-wired-gaming-keyboard-hcman-h01 this could be a good replacement especially if you know you wont need the numpad so it allows for more mouse space

Most likely has to do with 24in being sweet spot for 1080p as anything larger and you tend to have to sit farther back to make things like text more legible so when it comes to 1440p 27in is the sweet spot and 32in for 4k
