So looking to build a new PC so i can get a bit more ram and not steal to much from my current Gaming PC so i can have a back up/for the wife
currently all i've bought is the
LED Strip Lighting
For Motherboard I'm more inline with buying a Asus or MSI
Yes i kinda want to keep the white aesthetic going lol
CPU maybe a
I currently have a GTX 1080 but will upgrade maybe once the 3080's come out depending on SC's demends
So Power supply
Finally waiting on what motherboard to pick before i look at RAM, not sure what i want but i want the 32GB
My budget, i don't really have a number set in stone, but i don't want to spend more on the processor + motherboard then a new video card xD
I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K
This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better.
Cost for the 2700X - $280
Cost for the i9-9900K - $500
Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users.
Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.
I am getting ready to build another PC due to the fact that my current rig is going on 4 yrs old (still solid) and I am passing it on to my kids so they can start to dabble in the PC realm.
My current rig is a mini ITX. Although it was fun, I'm going back to a micro ATX mid tower size.
New build -
CPU- Intel i7-8700k
Cooler - NZXT Kraken X62 Rev2
Mobo - Asus ROG STRIX Z370-G Gaming (mATX)
Memory - Corsair Vegnance RGB Pro 16gb DDR4-3000
Storage - Samsung 860 Evo 1TB
GPU - Asus GTX 1080 8gb ROG STRIX , but if new cards pop soon might swap.
Case - Corsair Crystal 280X RGB mATX mid tower
PSU - Corsair HX Platinum 750w
Also gonna grab a 32" ultra wide to pair up with a 27"
So this will be a RGB build with most of the components having that feature. I want to build a solid rig but not trying to max anything out this time around as I will probably do another build in a few years.
Will throw up some pics once its done.
Lets get an updated thread of everyone's custom Rigs that they will be using and/are already using to play SC. Please attach a hardware list and note any future upgrades you'll be making. Probably try to limit to 2-4 pics per post to limit load time on smaller devices and tag your chipset (AMD or Intel) in the tagline. Cant wait to see what you guys are running!
