First off you're coming off as a [redacted]
that doesn't know anything about building a PC when you have stated you have before. You ask for input and then dismiss it and complain about it being vague. Well, part of the process is to ask open ended questions and not assume you want to spend $5K on something when you only need to spend maybe $2K to accomplish what you NEED. You ramble on here n this thread but then follow up with the same thread but a detailed account of what you're thinking about getting. Cross posting doesn't help filter out the info efficiently and having been around here for however many years I suspect you know this already.
1. What YOUR PC will be used for. Strictly gaming. 2. What YOUR budget is. Up to $5,000 but as always, I'd like to keep it as low as possible. 3. What country YOU will be buying YOUR parts from. USA / Online stores. 5. IF YOU have a brand preference. EVGA for the PSU is about the only...
PC will be used for
2. What YOUR budget
Up to $5,000 but as always, I'd like to keep it as low as possible.
3. What country YOU
will be buying YOUR
USA / Online stores.
5. IF YOU
have a brand preference
EVGA for the PSU is about the only preference these days but I'm pretty flexible even on this. I've ran through a few Corsair PSUs that have all died on me, but my current EVGA is still going strong after 7 years.
6. If YOU
intend on using
any of YOUR current parts
, and if so, what those parts are.
Headset + 2X 512GB SSDs
7. IF YOU
plan on overclocking
or run the system at default
I might tweak some things here and there but I don't think I'll do anything as extreme as I did with my current system.
8. What resolution
monitor size, will you be using?
4K 144hz. My only question would be since I'm going to use my current 2k monitor as a second screen, will that have any effect on a 4k monitor I purchase? In the past, all my monitors have been more or less the same so this one is new for me.
do you plan to build it?
Around October 20th.
10. Do you need to purchase any software to go with the system
Just the OS as far as I'm aware.
Now that that's all cleared up, time to get to the list.
CPU - i9-13900KF ALREADY PRE-ORDERED @ $630
GPU - Nvidia RTX 3090ti Founder's Edition ALREADY PRE-ORDERED @ $1,100
PSU - EVGA SuperNova 1000w Platinum @ $170 (for some reason this was cheaper than the lower wattage)
RAM - G.Skill Trident Z5 32GB (6600) @ $310 OR G.Skill Trident Z5 32GB (6400) @ $275 (hopefully they fit without interfering - I've seen some pretty bad reviews over the fins poking into heatsinks and fans)
Mobo - ASUS ROG Strix Z790-E @ $500 (I don't need the WiFi but it seems most ASUS brands are coming with them for some reason...)
HDD - 2X Samsung 980 Pro 2TB @ $380 + 2X NVMe Heatsinks @ $40
Case - I've looked at a lot of cases and I can't decide on one at the moment. Since I live in the desert, I need airflow and ease of access to fans above all else since even with double-pane windows, my house inherits a ridiculous amount of dust - especially during wind season.
Monitor - Again, I'm new to the G-Sync 144hz 4K thing. I see monitors from $300 up to $3,000 and I'm unsure what half of this stuff means in regards to gaming. I really love ASUS monitors and I've found this ASUS ROG Strix 27" @ $700 so recommendations are appreciated here as well.
Peripherals - Random RGB Cherry keyboard $100 / Logitech G502 Wired @ $40
OS - Windows 11 Home 64 bit @ $120
Overall current price - $4090
This leaves me about $910 for the case as well as anything else I may have forgotten. As I said before, I'm always happy to spend less than the proposed amount but I'm willing to go all the way to $5,000 so if there's a reason I should spend more somewhere else, please let me know why. I'll keep updating this as parts come and go and as I start finalizing my selections. I'd like to get this all ordered in one piece but since there's some deals going on right now with Amazon and I'm sure more deals will spring up later, I can always grab piece by piece.
So, let's cut the [redacted]
and condense things into a single thread so you can get to the end of the road and quit bitching
about attitudes and take the info you get for the new system and make your own decision on the devices you decide to use in the end. It's not a difficult task but you sure are trying to make it one.
Now, the whole I ordered a 3090TI and oh the 4090 looks so much better but it's out of stock [redacted]
is old news and has been explained that even though the 4090 has placeholders on a bunch of sites it's not actually for sale yet.
What advice do you need with two threads on the same subject. Lose the question on the thread with the parts you listed out.
It was a typo and should say POSE instead of LOSE. [Redacted]
happens and neither of us is perfect.
But, the whole "down voting" is a bit more like acting like a toddler instead of using your words to explain or question things and then you go on a [redacted]
fest about it.
Be an adult and quit acting like an entitled 3 year old.
I've been waiting to build a new gaming PC for a few years and since GPU prices have started to drop down to levels that I'm willing to pay (and with my current PC hanging on for dear life after over a decade), it's time to start looking into who is winning the current hardware race. The last PC I built was right before the Nvidia 2000 series hit the market and Ryzen was a stretch ahead of Intel so I'm curious if Intel has brought anything out recently that would put them out front. Also, with EVGA leaving the GPU market, I'm willing to look into AMD cards despite never using one myself but I would like to stick with Nvidia if possible.
Mainly I'm just curious what would be the better bang for my buck. As always, I'm looking to future-proof so I only have to upgrade one or two things ten years down the line. I'll get a proper build list and budget together later but right now I'd just like to know which brands to be looking at when I'm starting to piece it all together.
This is a whole lot different than what you started the above thread with and meaningless which is why you got vague responses and have been battling to articulate things here and there.
Any reason for pro over home? It's been so long since I looked at operating systems and looking at the side-by-side comparison on Newegg, one doesn't seem to have any benefits over the other, though since you mentioned it I'm sure I'm just not looking in the right place.
Pro unlocks additional features and NE is probably the worst place to compare things.
|Windows 10 Pro||Windows 10 Home|
|Windows start menu||Yes||Yes|
|Windows Store Apps||Yes||Yes|
|Programs outside the Windows Store||Yes||Yes|
|Microsoft Update for Business||Yes||No|
Pro offers more manageability w/o restrictions of the home version. The biggest thing for techies is the RDP option to login and not have to be at the PC to do things from say a laptop or another PC. There are more nuances though like not being forced to tie the machine to a MS account and use a local account instead.
I definitely don't want to bottleneck myself later down the road in a few years, so I'll check out a 1,000w PSU.
Sure some foresight into potential power needs makes sense but, do you need to spend $200 for 1K or considerably less for an 850W if you're not needing 1Kw PSU in the next 5 years? With the 40090 conundrum you pose there's the off chance
12VHPWR - is the new spec for PSU's / GPU's that need 600W+ to run demanding titles.
Taking this example from NE - https://www.newegg.com/asus-geforce-rtx-4090-tuf-rtx4090-24g-gaming/p/N82E16814126596
says you need 1000W PSU

Now, back to my initial advice of using PCPartPicker to sort this mess out and since you didn't / won't do it here's some basics based on what's available and matches most of your listed wants above.
-- $3700 + taxes / shipping and case / monitor / keyboard / mouse / surge protector / paste/pad.
Now you just need to het off your high horse and quit playing dumb and actually put in the work to design your own system. This is just a foundational build to swap in/out parts you think you want and then you can pose actual questions regarding components or as a whole.
My thoughts on this is you're wasting your money by going with such a setup and could save quite a bit by going down to ADL instead of pushing RPL.
Swapping out the CPU/RAM/MOBO alone saves you $600 with everything else the same as above.
The ease at which you can swap parts on PCP to quote things makes it a quick process to compare things. You can save different setups with ease and then compare them later. Set alerts for when things are in stock or priced lower.
Personal insults and profanity (even abbreviated) is not allowed in the tech forums.
Additionally, it is time to move along to help someone else who needs it. It is clear from this post, nothing else positive is going to come from you continuing to offer any more help with this user.
