The most he could ask for that is probably around $800-$700, maybe more if it's a 144hz monitor.
This is a super good edition, really helpful for narrowing down laptop choices since the market for them is so big. Can't wait until more laptops are added.
I'm not really sure about the mousepad but artisan mousepads are very nice. And if you want the best wireless mouse on the market the G pro wireless isn't the best option. For mouse I would recommend the Razer Viper Ultimate.
Which benchmark are you looking at that shows the P400A has bad airflow? Gamer's nexus has a good benchmark and I have the P400A and can confirm the airflow is great. And the RL06 is quite and old case with an acrylic panel.
The P400A digital meets all of your listed requirements. The Cooler Master H500P is also an option.
I would say at that point to just get a completely new CPU and motherboard to chnage to a more recent platform with more uogradability.
The THICC II card has a horrible cooler and overheats quick, the pulse is a much better option. Also, I wouldn't recommend sabrent anymore due to them pulling a bait and switch to where they now ship with Physon E8 memory controllers instead of Physon E12 as advertised.
Why are you getting a blower GPU in the first place? It's going to run loud and hot.
That's exactly what they do all the time, they mark it as on sale and put a bull original price as the original price. They've always done this.
If you already know how to solder it'll be a pretty easy task, but Imo i would get a hotswappable body like the GMMK and put whatever keycaps and switches you want instead of having to solder each and every one.
970 for $90. Wow
It can't be that bad. Bring on the cable management.
I would change the case, get a 2080 Ti, and change the PSU to a G3 or a completely different brand like bitfenix or corsair. And not get an AIO.
That power supply is super overkill, a 550 watt would be just fine. The 5700 series doesn't consume a lot of power at all.
Included keyboard and monitor on the same lis, comes up to around $700.
So you're just going to ignore that mechanical switches are more durable and last more than two times longer than membrane.
P400A or the P350x
I remember this pic from the PCPP discord, very clean build. Now about the Keyboard... ;)
That's a 1440p monitor and it's not even IPS and is more than $2000. That's a horrible deal.
Yeah but that's membrane keyboard, I'd stick to the Redragon since it's a mechanical.
$30 over budget but includes everything as well as an optical drive. Max performance for the price.
I'd recommend switching out the 2600 with the 3600 and getting the B450 Tomahawk MAX and spending the extra $20 for a 2070 super instead of just a normal 2070.
If you mean 2600x would get the 2600 since it's the same thing just not factory overclocked. If you 3600x it's overpriced and there's no point to it. And if you want to keep the 3600 you could always get an MSI MAX motherboard for cheaper than an X570 board.
Oh yeah arguing over SSD's
Switch it with the 2600 and get a better graphics card.
I don't see it sold in normal retailers like Amazon, Newegg, B&H, and OutletPC. I believe that's the reason the dan case and InWin A1 are both on the website unlike the M1.
Smol boi, big performance.
Amazon resellers and wrong topic.
I would change the motherboard to the X570-P Asus Prime due to it having better vrm's and being $10 cheaper. (And the Gaming X's PCB is brown) And I'd switch the power supply to the Bitfenix Whisper M.
What're you using this PC for? And the motherboard can be replaced with something like the X570-P, since it has great vrm's for the price. And SSD where???
If you're dad is just doing simple thing there's no need for a discrete GPU, you can save money by just going with a Ryzen APU and a small SSD as a boot drive.
You should probably just make a completely new build because all of those parts are outdated by today's standards.
Extra $30 left to use on upgrading the monitor or saving up for a GPU.
Airflow is also meh but better, if you really like the look of the LL120 fans then get it.
Just because the H510 has *** airflow and cable extensions would look better anyways.
Okay well I'd change the PSU and get cable extensions, get the normal X570-P, Get the P400A White, and get a better GPU with the saved money.
Here's an AMD version which is much cheaper and offers the same performance
Here's a refined version of your original Intel build with a better cooler.
I changed the case on both because a full tower case is to big and the P400A is a good alternative and much cheaper.
I would change the case for a cheaper case with better airflow like the P400A Digital and get a different cooler or just drop the cooler since the stock cooler is more than enough.
Yeah the GPU covers that because of NVENC, I just mean gaming because Intel still beats AMD slightly in gaming performance,
If you're just gaming this is probably your best bet, it's also under budget.
What's the use case?
This is scarily clean.
Two SSD's is cheaper than one, I'd change the case he suggested and the keyboard, changing the monitor as well to a 1440p 144hz is a better idea as well. And if you go SLI it going to consume more than 850 watts. You'd need a 1000 watt power supply, SLI is pretty useless anyways so I wouldn't try doing it. Also most important I'd get 2x16 RAM because that motherboard doesn't have memory controller support for all 4 slots to be filled so you'd be losing performance.
Here's a different idea with a 2080 Super and 3700x. For gaming you're never going to end up using 12 cores.
MSI has a case
The new Phanteks P400A or P400A Digital, both come with fans and have very good airflow. I would know because I also own the P400A Digital lmao. Or the Cooler Master H500.
