Anything besides a license bought from an authorized seller is (at best) questionably legal, and most of the time simply piracy. PCPP has pretty strict guidelines regarding piracy, so you won't find any info here.

The first one has a (slightly) better CPU, but the second has more RAM and a far better GPU as well as a SSD. I don't really keep up on used parts, but buying a new GPU that would match the GTX 980 in terms of power would cost about $350, so I'd say the second build is the best deal.

Changes:

CPU- newer and roughly equivalent to the 7700K.

Cooler- cheaper and still a very good cooler. (the one you picked would work too, though.)

RAM- faster and cheaper.

Drives- more space for cheaper. (the 850 EVO is an excellent drive, but will have little to no perceptible difference for general use.)

Video card- upgraded to 1080.

PSU- 850W is overkill, the Focus Plus is an excellent PSU with a more suitable wattage.

Windows- full version.

Are these parts is compatible?

Yes, they are. PCPP makes that pretty hard to mess up.

I'd recommended the Ryzen mainly because it offers comparable performance at a lower price, (mainly due to the Z370 boards being the only choice for coffee lake.) If you do really want the high single core speeds though, getting a good air cooler is better than a 120mm liquid cooler.

I wasn't sure about the PSU, do you think a SeaSonic is a better deal?

The EVGA isn't a bad cooler, it just isn't especially good. Unlike the S12II which is one of, if not the best at this price point.

CPU can be upgraded up to the 1800X and potentially further, considering AMD says they will support the AM4 socket until 2020. Twice as much, and faster RAM, solid PSU and sorta managed to keep the colour scheme.

Just for clarity, the Wraith spire cooler, (which comes with the 1600,) is good enough for a moderate overclock if that's all your looking to do.

The 1060 and 580 are very close in terms of power, but the 580 is the better deal when combined with a freesync monitor.

Also, that CPU cooler is unnecessary unless your planning on heavy overclocking.

Should I really get a SDD? I don't feel like I would really miss it if I didn't have it.

The most obvious change you'd notice going from a mechanical drive to a SSD would be boot times, but you also get general improvements in system responsiveness and load times for programs installed on the drive. It's not really something you'll miss if you don't have it, but you'll never go back once you've tried it.

I want to do dual graphic cards but that might have to wait seeing as how expensive this is getting.

SLI is badly supported, and only offers a performance increase in a handful of programs/games, and can actually decrease performance in many cases.

The Ryzen 1600 can do 1080p-60Hz just fine, and is much more cost effective. With the budget freed up there you can get faster RAM, and upgrade to a 6gb 1060 so you can do ultra settings easily.

I'd recommend the 8350K if you want to go with intel. You'll have to pay a premium for a high end board regardless, you might as well get an unlocked CPU to go with it. Plus, the main advantage the 8400 has over the 1600 is single and quad core performance, and the 8350K beats both in those categories.

The intel build goes a bit over budget:

A Ryzen build would stick closer to £800 though:

The link you have right now is the generic "current parts list" link, so it just leads to whatever build the person who opens it was last working on.

It should look like this: (https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/hJjJYr)

Not this: (https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/)

This is not an exact measure of performance, but it can give you a good idea of the difference in power:

CPU comparison

GPU comparison

1050 vs 1050Ti

There are a few things on that list that should be changed, but I'll need to know what you budget is before i can help with that as a couple of your parts are out of stock.

I'm not sure whats required for a machine learning build. (or even what that is,) so I can't help you there. I can help finding cheaper equivalent parts, though, so where in Europe are you? PCPP has settings for many other countries besides the US, one is likely closer to you.

does the motherboard distinguish between the appropriate levels to use depending on current operating conditions, or is it something that is static (and set by me)?

I'd ask on the PSU thread for a better answer. But from what little I know, the voltage is set by which port of the PSU you use, (different components have their own proprietary connections to avoid plugging stuff in wrong,) and fine tuned by the motherboard. You can control voltage for some components manually (namely the CPU and GPU,) but there's no reason to unless you're overclocking. In short, not something you have to consider outside of overclocking.

Changed the CPU to a Ryzen 1600, which is great for gaming, editing and streaming. Switched the RAM to dual channel, and added a better PSU and the full version of windows.
