I see GTX 1060 in a build for retail price and I cry, so beautiful, so natural.

your build pretty good. Just be aware that the GTX 1070 prices are really high due to Crypto-currency mining.

The GTX 1070 is far more powerful than the RX 580. Around 20-30% in games.

Overall your build is soild.

However your monitor choice is not good.

Your build is more geared to 1440p or even 4k gaming.

Get a higher resolution monitor with above or around 75HZ at 1440p at the least.

Your correct on the 1500x, but I think the GTX 1060 3GB would be better for gaming.

R5-1500x vs 1400 when OC will be pretty similar, the stock cooler are very good for around a 3.7GHZ OC.

Consider your ambient temps.

Also consider the GTX 1060 3GB over the 1050TI.

Consider a Z270 motherboard to overclock.

This build is solid.

But I would consider Ryzen R5-1600 or 1500x build with a B-350 motherboard.

Also the RX-480 and RX 580 are out of stock in most places. IF you can get them, get the RX 580.

If you can not consider the GTX 1060.

since your consider video editing and workstation purposes, I suggest considering the R5 RYZEN CPUs.

Pretty Good, you should be happy and be able to play most games above 100HZ easily.

You can check the RYZEN cookie cutter build on YouTube. It is kind of of similar and also has benchmarks.

If your going OC the R5-1600 and the X version perform the exact same.

Both can handle a RX 580 , GTX 1060 ore even the GTX 1070.

the OC 1600 + 1070 would be excellent even at 1440p.

Ryzen would be a definite upgrade in terms of quality.

Less stuttering and low frame rates. Better temps.

Just idea but you could get the R5-1600, B-350 motherboard and also upgrade you GPU.

It you can not get the RX 580, check out the GTX 1060 GB. They should be restocked in few week hopefully when the Cryptocurrency FAD dies down.

Your build is pretty nice, however I would cut down on the case and some other corners and get the GTX 1080ti over the 1080 at the price point of your build.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "First PC"

That is good CPU, if you can stretch your budget get the R5-1600. You do not really a aftermarket cooler as the stock cooler can let you OC well.

You can overclock any Ryzen chip and both x370 and B350 motherboards. it is a fully unlocked platform.

Given the price range a Single 1080Ti would better, single GPU solutions are better and you will not have to worry about games being optimized for SLI.

You will not have buy a new PSU and redo all your cable management also.

This is good, only thing you can consider is faster ram if it is in your budget.

You be excellent at 1080p with your monitor and should be able to run nearly all games at ultra.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Help please! Moving to PC from console"

  • 32 months ago

Nice that your moving away from consoles.

However your mother board does not support overclocking and your CPU is a k series that is intended for OC.

You will need a Z270 board for that.

You should consider the following

R5-1600 CPU

https://pcpartpicker.com/product/mV98TW/amd-ryzen-5-1600-32ghz-6-core-processor-yd1600bbaebox

And B-350 motherboards

Good choices, however I would get faster RAM as Ryzen really benefits from it. better framerates .

Also consider a RX 560 or GTX 1050 over the 750TI.

If you want ultra setting, yes that a good idea.

But you may want still buy a good cooler to OC the i7-7700k to maximize the frame rate.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "AMD vs Intel/NVidia?"

Any B-350 board with VRM heatsinks,

I like the

MSI B-350 tomahawk

Gigabyte - GA-AB350-GAMING 3

ASRock - Fatal1ty AB350 Gaming K4

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Should I upgrade my CPU or GPU???"

  • 32 months ago

Overclocking the CPU will mean that it can draw the maximum amount of frames when paired with any GPU, Since you have a great modern i5

RX 580 or GTX 1060 for 1080p Ultra settings

OR GTX 1070 for 1440p ultra settings

This also means better averages and lows when compared to a non OC cpu.

Your overall system is fine,

The GTX 980Ti is equaled to the GTX 1070.

The best upgrade would be to your GPU to a GTX 1080 or 1080TI.

  • 32 months ago

Get a new gpu, RX 580 or GTX 1060 is next step up.

A Gtx 1070 would be major upgrade.

Also do you have the cpu Overclocked?

Comment reply on Forum Topic "AMD vs Intel/NVidia?"

There is no reason to get the R5-1600x over the 1600 as they OC the same and perform the same at around 3.7GHZ to 4.0GHZ.

Some of my favorite coolers are Noctua - NH-D15 and the be quiet! - Dark Rock .

However for budget to midrange coolers

CRYORIG - M9a

Cooler Master - Hyper 212 /LED/DUAL FAN/

Scythe - Kotetsu

Thermaltake - Riing Silent 12 Red

MSI - CORE FROZR

The Ryzen build is better,

The R5-1600, can be OC and has better performance in terms of the 1% lows in nearly all games.

This means you have higher minimum FPS and less stuttering and better frame times.

Also saw you mentioned the GTX 970, if you have that, use that till GPU prices get lower on the new stuff.

The RX 580 vs GTX 1060 are virtually equal both win some games and lose others.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Want to OC but need a cheaper MOBO and CPU"

  • 32 months ago

His best option would be the R5-1600. IF your going for OC and have to buy a $40-$50 cooler,

R5-1400 + $50 cooler = around $ 210

R5-1600 has good stock cooler = $209

More cores and more L3 cache. Both have 65watt TDP.

Good build, have you considered the R7-1700, as your getting the NH-D15 you will be easily able to OC it to perform just a good as the x version.

You have a decent build and good GPU, the biggest upgrade would be to a Overclocked 7600k and new motherboard.

Or a R5 Ryzen build and B350 motherboard. For R5 get the 1600.

Get the G4560. It equals the i3-6100 or is around 5% less in games.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Did I Get A Good Deal? $135 i5-3570 System"

A pretty good buy,

The CPU is still pretty strong.

A 4GB RAM, SSD, a 430 watt PSU and RX 1060 3GB.

Some that may be choices are

NZXT - S340 (Black/Red) ATX

Azza - SIRIUS ATX Mid

Phanteks - ECLIPSE P400S TEMPERED GLASS

Corsair - 500R Black ATX Mid

The idea here is to get cut a little on the physical looks to get more performance.

The R9 390 and 390x had better coolers and slightly lower TDP but your right it depends on the cooler, the XFX, Msi and wind force are good.

Since your going the more work station route.

A R7-1700 Ryzen build would be better.

Comment reply on Forum Topic "Decent Ryzen 5 build under $1000?"

My advice is get a cheaper case and get the R5-1600

Comment reply on Forum Topic "R9 290x on a 550w PSU?"

A RX 570 or GTX 1060 3gb is around the price range.

Just remember the R9 290x get hot, very hot.
