For 200$ you can get this Intel "upgrade"

you are on the newest generation then, but the CPU is only slighty better or even on par

I think it would be best to search ebay for the latest CPU+MOBO combo (or separately) which supported DDR3. Should be Haswell-Refresh if I remember correctly. Don't get a DDR3 Sky Lake MOBO.

Look for a Z87 or Z97 MOBO and as a CPU try i5-4670K / i5-4690K / i7-4790K / i7-4770K

  • you could go cheaper on the MOBO, but you would lose the aesthetics
  • I went on the newegg site and it says ~320$ for the RAM, but going with 3200 RAM should fix the price
  • 2TB SSD from Samsung is a big budget eater, you can definitely save some cash here. Like 120GB SSD / 240GB M.2 + 1TB SSD or a combo with HDDs, many possibilities, but 2TB Samsung SSD is the most expensive
  • GTX 1080 is dead because of the GTX 1070ti. An overclocked GTX 1070ti will get you on a GTX 1080 level, but will cost less
  • the PSU got a 9/10 on JonnyGURU, but that was back in 2011. Maybe you are lucky and a PSU-expert will read your thread and tell you if this unit is still ok, or if it is missing (nowadays) basic features.
  • overall, a lot of saving potential which could get you a GTX 1080ti and a R7 in the end, but it will look a lot different

I can only tell from my own experience that the difference between CL15 2133 and CL15 3000 (same RAM, without and with XMP profile) was like 6 frames in Battlefield 1 (Intel machine GTX 1070 1080p high settings) ... but 114 or 120 fps wasn't an issue for me.

  • I'd say in general:
  • better have 2 than 1 stick
  • CL15 or lower with DDR4
  • the higher the better, but not higher than 3200
  • Intel is fine with 2133 2400 2666

please correct if something is horribly wrong there

  • 120GB is plenty for windows and firefox usage. Games belong onto the 2TB HDD
  • following your logic, he should buy a GTX 980ti now. new things may be costy, but the GTX 2070 will not only have ray tracing but more power in general than a GTX 1070 (benchmarks will show. look at that: 2080 twice the power as 1080), so you profit both ways (my GTX 1070 was 480 EUR)
  • when I did the build there was no 20$ mail-in-rebate for that SeaSonic unit, so it is easy for you to compromise my build and PSU choice now.
  • there is no freaking reason to downvote that build
  • I don't take sh from people who advise to get the X version of a Ryzen CPU, but on the other hand don't build with Intel K CPUs. And even if I think that's plain stupid, I am not going to put a thumbs down on it, because we live in a society.

Is there a person/website with benchmarks for every single (or the most common) MOBO-RAM-CPU combinations? I would be interested, looking for something like this for long now. With single and dual channel RAM benchmarks would be nice, too.

  • CPU: you already chose a Z370 and an aftermarket-cooler, so I upgraded the i5-8600 in your build to an i5-8600k
  • cooler: the Hyper 212 Evo will keep your CPU cool, but the Mugen 5 will allow for a nice overclock
  • MOBO: a couple dollars more to get all those sweet features. The shield for the ports (don't know the real name), nice optics, blin-bling, on-board WIFI
  • RAM: went down to 8GB, took the money from that to upgrade other parts. 8GB is cool for gaming and the MOBO let's you add another 2x4GB in the future (if you need it). Also 2800 CL15 is a bit faster than 2666 CL16
  • SSD: I know it is the cheapest on here, but it works pretty well.
  • GPU: there is no need to pay those extra 57$, just for Strix. The MSI Duke is damn fine aswell.
  • case: I didn't change it, because you chose it. The one I usually recommend is the Fractal Design Focus G
  • PSU: 550W is minimum for this build. Overclocks do need more power, but a 750W PSU will never be useful if you don't get dual GPUs (or get a full AMD build with R7 CPU and RX Vega GPU)

  • MOBO: These MOBOs are almost identical, the Bazooka offers a RGB feature though, I had money left to spend, so I put in those euros to sweeten up the MOBO
  • RAM: If you step up the RAM to 16GB, then you will have to go down on the GPU. But maybe you can put that GPU money towards RAM and a HDD
  • case: it comes with 2 silent white-LED fans in front. It is great to build in and is good bang-per-buck. Some people go for even "cheaper" cases, but they forget, that those cases sometimes only have 1 fan in the back and that this fan is crap most if the time.
  • case fan: correct, that fan is for the back as an exhaust

announced prices are RTX cards... with a technology they have been developing for the last 10 years. They now have to cash in.

GTX cards are just improvements of the previous generation. If the price of the new GTX 2060 won't be between the current price of a GTX 1060 and GTX 1070, no one will buy it.

Or we will get a new crypto boom and gamers won't get the new cards at all.

for your current GPU a 75Hz monitor is perfectly fine for gaming @1080p high settings

when playing older games like CS:GO you can easily hit the frames to make use of a 144Hz monitor, but not AAA-Titles

it is only small things, like the PC Pro offers the newest USB 3.1 Type-C port, or a RGB header

but let's be honest. The PC Pro has black PCB, and the A-Pro has brown PCB

  • let's put it that way
  • 3.7 GHz for 62.50$ = 16.89$ per GHz
  • 3.9 GHz for 82.00$ = 21.03$ per GHz
  • the difference of 0.2 GHz is 5.13% in this case
  • the difference of 19.5$ is 23.78% in this case
  • so, you pay 23.78% more money to gain 5.13% power
  • to me, that's a no no
  • If it is personally ok for to pay the extra 20$ to upgrade to the 3.9GHz CPU, then do it.

nah, just the GPU

GTX 1070ti would be nice - it hits 120+fps on 1080p high/ultra settings

so even if your monitor is only 60Hz, you will have years to come to drop below those 60fps (Witcher on Epic settings and jokes like that are a different story)

You already own this machine? If so, get a better GPU, that's it

Or is this a new build? If so, what is the budget? 1100$?
