Slightly faster CPU, 450W PSU is plenty, also you might as well go with a mATX case to match the motherboard:

CPU- 6 cores & 12 threads for heavy multi-tasking.

RAM- 8gb is enough for gaming and general use, but if you want to run twelve programs at a time 16gb is a better choice.

Storage- SSD for OS and frequently used programs, 1tb HDD for mass storage.

Video card- just a bit more powerful.

I am planning on adding another GPU when one becomes available.

SLI has been on the way out for a while now, I would suggest waiting for Volta if you want a GPU upgrade.

Forum Topic "Difference between 6GB Graphics card in comparison with 8GB cards?"

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

The VRAM in a video card handles scene/texture details, so having more means you can set things like texture quality higher. 6GB is plenty for most games, 8+ GB is generally only for higher end cards as lower power cards can't make use of that much.

Also, difference between memory 2113mz in comparison with 2400mz?

I assume you are referring to RAM speeds? 2133Mhz is the lowest speed of DDR4, faster is better (especially for Ryzen CPU's,) but after 2666Mhz the cost starts to outpace the performance gains.

I’d say 1070s are around 30~40% better than 1070s.

Considering that my pc has a 1060 6gb with a i5 8600k is it powerfull enough for 144hz?

If you are playing older or e-sports games, (like CSGO or OW,) the 1060 would do 144fps just fine. The 8600K is great for high refresh too.

Ah, okay. You replied to me instead of OP.

Forum Topic "First Gaming PC build"

The video card is what will define what settings you can play at.

OW and Fortnite should run at high to ultra at 60fps with the 1050 Ti, PUBG at medium/high, CoD I can't say as I don't know which one you are referring to, but older titles will run at ultra, newer ones at lower settings.

CPU- Cheaper, and offers plenty of power for 60Hz gaming.

RAM- Faster RAM helps a fair bit with Ryzen CPU's

SSD- Will generally improve system responsiveness

HDD- A bit newer and faster

Video Card- GTX 1060's and equivalent cards are absurdly overpriced and hard to find right now. A 1050 Ti offers decent performance for gaming, and is much more reasonably priced

Case- A bit better quality

PSU- The S12II series is pretty old, a CXM is a better choice now

Mediocre CPU cooler, but other than that a solid build. If you aren't overclocking, go for a H7, if you are get a Mugen 5.

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

A 1050 might be a better choice then, as they are one of the few cards that aren't hugely overpriced right now. It won't do 144Hz well, but it should last until either prices stabilize or the new gen of cards is released.

Forum Topic "Buy now or wait"

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

The extra 3gb of VRAM in the 1060-6gb really just means you can set texture quality higher, but it's also slightly more powerful. Neither card is ideal for 1080p-144Hz, but they should both work fine if you play with lower settings.

$220 is the saner price, though they are both overpriced. (Like pretty much every card right now.)

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

I did a bit more researching and I narrowed it down to these three CPU Coolers

All three of those coolers are low profile units, which favor size over performance, since you don't need the clearance just get something like a M9i.

I also did some research and found this 1070 GPU, do you think its any good and will it work well with my build?

A 1070 would be just fine for your build, yes.

Finally, I was also thinking about changing up my power supply to something better and ended up with these two They are both compatible, but is one of them better suited to my build than the other?

I think the XFX one you had originally would be a better unit than either of those.

The PSU will have to be bought in NZ, as a US one likely won't work, but the case could easily be bought in the US and would be much cheaper.

Intel has a had a really bad virus

It's a design flaw, not a virus.

The link is broken.

Also he doesn't plan to overclock, is Ryzen 1600X the better option compared to the 1600 for not overclocking?

The 1600X offers a 0.4Ghz clock speed increase for about 30€ more. Unless you are trying to push higher frame rates, the 1600 is probably the better choice.

Finding Video cards anywhere near a reasonable price is really hard right now, both of the selections here are overpriced.

Forum Topic "Upgrading a XPS 8700"

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 3 points 15 months ago

it said that the 1050 Ti creates a 25% bottleneck (on the GPU side!)

That's not how it works. The 1050 Ti is a great card for 1080p-60Hz, it will run newer games at medium-high settings, and older ones at max settings. As long as you have a CPU that can push 60fps, (which the 4770 can,) there won't be any issue.

Buildtimeboys 1 Build 1 point 15 months ago

Going from a 15" 1080p screen to a 23" one, I can say the difference is pretty clear. That is just me though.
