Building my first PC

Recommended Posts

macgregor1964

There are alot of compatability issues and speed issues that you guys are very familiar with.I am not.Noooob pc builder for sure. My budget is intermediate lvl so any suggestions on what to do,or not do would be much appreciated. The only thing i have narrowed down is the 1tb samsung 970 evo ssd lol. Still looking at ram,mobo,gpu,psu,cpu,case ,cooling-water or heat sink.Thanks in advance. Ps i have no desire to OC anything...I am def leaning towards rtx nvidia series. 2060 2070 not 2080 outside of budget.

For RTX, go 2070 as its more the best bang for the buck sort of thing. look at prices between 2060, 2070 and 2080 then check the specs on their performance.

After doing my own research I felt like this build was the best bang for the buck for me doing gaming at 3440x1440 (ultrawide 2k).

Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO

EVGA GeForce RTX 2070 XC ULTRA GAMING

Intel Core i7-9700K Coffee Lake 8-Core 3.6 GHz (4.9 GHz Turbo)

Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R Addressable RGB AIO CPU Liquid Cooler

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB

EVGA Supernova 750 G3, 80 Plus Gold 750W

 

You can see the whole build here---> https://forums.uwsgaming.com/topic/19690-project-blueserro/

 

When you are planning a build, the best thing I can recommend to you is this...

  • Know your budget
  • Know what resolution you will be playing at
  • Do LOTS of research, then do even more research
  • You already decided between AMD vs Intel
  • Decided between air cool vs liquid cool
  • Try your hardest to find that sweet spot which is the best bang for the buck for all of the above

 

Amazon.com, newegg.com, tomshardware.com, microcenter.com and pcpartpicker.com are places I would recommend for you also 👍

 

8 basic tips for building computers...

1- make damn sure the solder points on the back of your motherboard CANT touch your metal case

2- power supply controls life span of your expensive computer parts

3- know the parts maker rep for their returns, love EVGA because of this

4- Take your time and don't rush anything

5- static electricity makes for dead computer parts

6- research everything, over and over and over again!

7- overclocking is a slippery slope which is best avoided

8- always be extra careful and pay attention when in your BIOS

Agent's feedback is solid, the only thing I want to add is that there are sites specifically setup around helping users build their PC. 

 

https://pcpartpicker.com/

 

It helps you figure out what parts work with what, reviews, cost, ect.

Thanks very much @AgentSerro and @JBox88  I have already decided on the

EVGA RTX 2070 Super

Intel I7 9900k

G.SKILL TridentZ 16-32 Gig ?

EVGA Supernova 750 G3, 80 Plus Gold 750W

Gigabyte Z390 AORUS PRO

Only thing left for me to decide on is liquid or heat sink and Mid size case? I need a fairly narrow case 9 in..lots of ventilation..

Thanks again for the tips.

Totally didn't see that as it first glance :P. But yah, at the very least I supported your statement! 

 

@macgregor1964 make sure you follow the reviews and what not for w/e case you're looking into. I've ran into wiring issues a couple times with cases I didn't properly check out reviews and images on.

@macgregor1964, this website will be your guide: https://pcpartpicker.com/

When you are done installing your PC parts I suggest you try: https://chocolatey.org/

It's a command-prompt / powershell (admin mode) application that allows you to install all of your favorite apps with one command. No user UI. No more clicking next. No more updating. One line and it will set everything up unattended.  Here is how my fresh install goes:

#-----------------------------------------------
# Chocolatey.org
#-----------------------------------------------

Set-ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Scope Process -Force; iex ((New-Object System.Net.WebClient).DownloadString('https://chocolatey.org/install.ps1'))

choco install googlechrome 

choco install winrar Listary powershellhere spotify geforce-experience sysinternals foxitreader steam telegram.install whatsapp pandoc google-drive-file-stream

#-----------------------------------------------
#Remove Windows Bloatware
#-----------------------------------------------
https://github.com/Sycnex/Windows10Debloater

Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Force


#-----------------------------------------------
ADD BLOCKING ./Host_Autoupdate.bat

I love the corsair obsidian cases, I like how easy they were to open to get to your parts (no having to unscrew) but also see the window so you can see inside without opening, it seems many brands now are starting to do something similar but either way they do look sleek, I've been using my Obsidian for many years, used it for my 2600k and now that I've upgraded I'm still using it for my 9900k, same with Choppers she has the same case, even tho it's a mid it's actually closer to a Full as I have so much space inside so it has nice airflow keeping it cool.

I have the Lian Li PC-O11DX 011 Dynamic, Tempered Glass ATX Mid Tower Gaming Computer Case

Love my case! Awesome airflow, super easy building, easy customizing and wire management was the easiest ever with this case. As I type this, I look over see this case next to me and makes me smile because I'm just that happy I picked this case, did research on hundreds of cases before buying this one.

After all the research I did, what I found... (personal opinion only)

  • Only $129.99
  • Best looking
  • Quite
  • Good air flow
  • Very high quality
  • Great design, inside and out
  • Best bang for the buck

 

*If you use this case, it's highly recommended to use a water radiator for your CPU*

 

Case cooling, I went with Nine 120mm case fans (including the water radiator)

DEEP COOL CF120 3IN1, Addressable RGB fans ( 3 fans on bottom and 3 fans on the side)

Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML360R Addressable RGB AIO CPU Liquid Cooler (on top with 3 fans)

Zero problems with heat, system is quite and stays nice and cool while running Division 2 with max settings at 3440X1440
