For just gaming the i5 9th gen will be perfect I would only recommend i7 if you want to stream. Also the 2070 isn’t the best bang for your buck only getting around 9 percent more FPS for 1080p gaming for on average $200 dollars more.
The person asked for Pro and I see I’ll definitely do my research into PSU’s and make a more
informed decision next time
I see I never really knew that psu's were put in a tier and stuff like that
for pure gaming
PCPartPicker part list / Price breakdown by merchant
significantly better parts for about 20 over budget plus room for upgrading
totally ill take the monitor and os out and show you
interesting I never really knew they had a tier system for psu's good to know ill adjust my build to that
This is the lowest I can get before GTA5 will have some problems
extremely difficult to get decent specs for 500 while including mouse keyboard monitor and os without major sacrifices
I know you said you didn't want to do streaming but I managed to get a damn good cpu and gpu in there which could allow for great multitasking
About $60 over but this is what I would pick for gaming (sacrifice speed of loading time for a better graphics card)
A tad over budget but this would be perfect for Workstation needs especially with a 4k monitor, m.2 ssd and i9 9900k
absolutely as long as its z390 you should be fine
also sorry for getting back super late lol
I see ill see if there is a good replacement
Not at all the gpu won't bottleneck the cpu's performance and definitely not vice versa. the RTX cards are all very high quality the 2060 being at the 1070ti level (which i personally own and kicks ***)
I see well I will look into the quality of the psu and double check it then but usually bronze psu's don't have a problem
Of course let me know if you have any questions about the parts I picked
Cause a bronze psu isn't truly bad it can handle anything thrown at it and then some and would only consider a gold if doing a decent overclock which wouldn't be needed on such a processor as far as I'm concerned. Why wouldn't you go for a bronze psu?
100% agree go 2200g over 2400g
your build is good but with a few tweaks we can upgrade to a i9 9900k for only $95 over budget
the major problem was the power supply was way overkill and killing your budget also I changed the case to something with rgb and cheaper
Personally, I would go with a 250gbb m.2 and a 2tb hard drive so apps and important files on the m.2 are super fast and you can have more space for other things
a tad over budget but super great performance
(sorry that I damn near remade your build but for your budget, you might as well go all in for the CPU)
A little over budget but this is what I came up with
Here is my edit of the build you have.
for the budget you are going for you might as well go all out
Here is what I would build with this budget
(a little over the $850 budget)
My opinion of the build
Personally the smaller case doesn't effect much especially a H400 (Im biased cause my PC is in one). for the motherboard, the Z series are the only ones that allow you to overclock (you have a i7 8700k where the k means unlocked and overclockable) and its okay if you have a gold or a bronze they are just named based on energy efficiency rating (bronze meaning 85% and gold meaning 95% efficiency)
Updated to have the power supply, cooler and no sound card
With that, you wouldn't need the sound card thanks for mentioning. if you want to have a higher watt PSU I would still go with a bronze PSU because it's cheaper and no different then a Gold (unless you're trying to save energy).
Finally, I changed the motherboard cause as long as its a z3 series, you will be fine with anything, plus the z390 will allow you to upgrade to a 9th gen if you want to in the future and the one you had before would only be good for 8th gen intel
Went over but if you want to make it cheaper go for a bronze power supply which honestly wont hurt you at all
Replaced the ssd for an m.s so rendering times and load times for production is super fast also cheaper and same quality cooler and same with case
Finally added a nice sound card for crisp audio quality for music production
I second that opinion personally I would go air over water cooled
Of course let me know if there is anything else that you would like
I couldn't seem to get it to $2000 dollars sorry lol
Final build with the black case
wow for the price this is amazing
How important are looks to you?
Sounds great, I'll do more research but thank you so much!
I see okay so its better to sacrifice ram speed for cpu performance
I like the use of the 1600 but wouldn't the ram speed hinder the Ryzen processor?
I would go with this list if you just want gaming performance
But if you decide to do streaming then I would go with this one
okay cool I'm actually almost done then
Also, are you planning on doing any streaming?
Sick, cause sound cards are only if you're doing high-end music production as far as I know.
I like this build a lot, would there be any issue with the SSD though? I'm new to Hackintosh builds so I'm unsure.
Why do you have a sound card? Also, are you attached to the i7 8700k?
The one on top seems perfect thank you so much!
I see, thank you very much this drops the price down a good bit and increases working performance.
Thank you for asking, no peripherals and no license.
I noticed you switched the CPU and GPU out, would this require more work to allow them to run on macOS?
