No problem.

Custom cards should get slightly cheaper, but for real price drops you'll have to wait until there's competition. The most optimistic rumours say October for that.

The cheapest versions will be those with some shitty plastic cooler to get close to nVidia's bullshit MSRP. Don't get one of those. Read reviews.

hey, finaly build for myself

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K
CPU Cooler: SilentiumPC Grandis XE1236
MB: GIGABYTE Z170-HD3P - Intel Z170
RAM: Kingston HyperX Savage Black 8GB DDR4 3000
Case: NZXT S340
PSU: CORSAIR CX Builder Series Modular 600W

Price: 16 592 CZK (615 €)
Shop: https://www.czc.cz/

Budget: 17 000 CZK (630 €)
I will be reusing my disks (120 GB SSD and 1 TB HDD) and GPU (unless i find out integrated one is better then my HD 6850 witch i plan to replace later)
Is in this price category and with this CPU worth going with water cooling (eg NZXT Kraken X31 is in budget) when i'm planning to overclock?
I know could get a cheaper case but i want to invest a bit into aesthetics

Thanks for any feedback or advice!

Honestly its a up to you to decide if its worth it. If you are planning to overclock, then yes, watercooling will help. Keep in mind water cooling can get pricey from all the parts you need such as fittings, radiators, blocks, etc.

Hey Setsul, cheers for this thread:

I am planning to build a complete desktop from scratch, the sooner the better but will most likely have to wait at least 4-6 weeks.
It will be 99% for gaming and my current line of thinking is to get an i7-6700K and an nVidia 1070 with the intention of getting a second 1070 for SLI in a year or two (so long as the CPU won't be too much of a limiting factor)
I am not rich but can afford to buy i7-6850K and 1080 IF there is a substantial improvement in performance OR a substantial longer life expectancy for PC as a 'gaming' PC
I live near Vancouver, Canada and my budget would be around CAD$3000 but can go higher.
Are the new CPU's worth the extra money from a gaming point of view? Mainly CSGO and TF2 but I expect I will also want to get into newer games since the PC will be able to play them. I prefer FPS games. I might also try to stream sometime.
What kind of build do you suggest (including monitor and keyboard)?
Thanks

AiO water coolers are terrible. High end air coolers are better. A custom water loop would be better but isn't even close to being within your budget. It'd also be a ton of work.

3000 MHz RAM is a bit overkill.
The CX600 isn't great, i'd get this one or if you want a semi modular PSU this one.

#1413
I don't think he meant a custom loop, it's not really possible with only 630€ total budget anyway.

#1414
First things first: There isn't much point in doing the exact part list in advance since prices will change. So I'm just trying to get a general idea now and figure out how performance you need. Then you post again in the week that you'll actually build it and I'll make the part list with the current prices.

Now about performance. Right now more than 4 cores hardly ever help in games. In fact because the 6850K is Broadwell, which is slightly slower than Skylake and also lower clocked than the 6700(K) it will actually perform worse in most games. In other words it's a waste of money for gaming.
How sure are you about streaming? Because if you won't then even the 6700K is more than you need. An i5-6600K would do just fine. You still have a few weeks to think about that.
Similar story with overclocking. Except you do get better performance in all CPU limited games. However you actually need to overclock. If you buy a Z170 mobo, a cooler and a -K CPU but then don't overclock it you've paid around 200$ for something you're not using.

A 6700K shouldn't be a problem with your budget but I like to mention these things anyway. 200$ are 200$, not some pocket change.

Now about the GPU. Apart from TF2 and CSGO which games would you like to play and how many fps on what settings and resolution do you want to get? That also brings us to the question what kind of monitor do you want? 144Hz? IPS? 1080p or higher? Lightboost? GSync/FreeSync?
It's generally best to get a GPU that does what you want it to do and just get a better one a few years later when you actually need a better one. To buy that kind of performance now you'd pay a massive premium. The GPU market moves so fast that buying a 300$ GPU now and then another 300$ GPU in 2 years actually gets you more performance than buying a 600$ GPU now. That's why you should just get the cheapest GPU that exceeds your requirements. Which obviously means you have to figure out what those requirements are.

About SLI / CF: It's generally recommended to get a single GPU if you can. Obviously not an option if you want more power than the fastest GPU available can provide but in all other cases you shouldn't use SLI / CF. There are a number of reasons:
1. It doesn't always work. If there's not SLI / CF profile for whatever game you want to play you just get the performance of one GPU.
2. Most profiles use AFR (alternate frame rendering). That means GPU 1 will render frame 1, halfway through GPU 2 will start rendering frame 2, once GPU 1 is finished with frame 1 it will start with frame 3, halfway through that GPU 2 finishes frame 2 and starts with frame 4 and so on. That means while you might see almost twice the fps the input lag stays the same. In fact it actually gets worse.
3. You need a motherboard that supports it and a PSU that can handle the power draw of two GPUs which adds to the cost.
4. With two GPUs next to each other they'll heat each other up and won't clock as high.

The end result is that you really won't get anywhere near twice the performance and it will cost you more than twice the money. A single GPU might actually get you better performance for less money.

I went with semi modular PSU you suggested (other ońe isn't in stock) and with 2400 RAM.
Thanks a lot once again!
EDIT: are you sure about wattage of PSU? I checked others builds you suggested and there's usually a 500 W or more PSU, like here or here. I'm planning to buy new GPU (Radeon 480?) before the end of the year.

Re#1414
Thanks for detailed answer.
Besides from TF2, CSGO I have no idea about what games are even available but FPS is my genre. I have heard about new Quake being released so will want that to run well. So to set an 'wish performance' a minimum of guaranteed 144fps (at lower settings is ok). Obviously higher fps is better.
I would like a 24inch 144Hz monitor for FPS gaming. I don't know anything about IPS / Lightboost / GSync/FreeSync.
From what you said it sounds like I want to get a 6700K and I am happy to OC (no experience with water cooling though) and a 1080 GPU. If SLI is not worth 'upgrading to' then get the 1080 now.
Streaming is not a priority at all but a 6700K should be capable of it?
Not planning on moving it but don't care too much whether ATX or whatever. Since it will be in my bedroom from time to time it would be nice to keep it on the quieter side though.
Will start doing my own research and will ask your advice again when it is time to buy.
Thanks again

That's because those PSU were cheaper than models with lower wattage.
You can check it http://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator but just a rough estimate would be:
<100W for the CPU -> <150W overclocked
50W for stuff (mobo, hdd, ssd, fans)
That still leaves us with 200W for a GPU. A 480 needs less than that even overclocked.

However there are obviously other options if you want maybe a 300W GPU some day.
https://www.czc.cz/evga-500b-500w/185123/produkt
Or semi modular https://www.czc.cz/corsair-cx-series-cx550m-550w/187756/produkt
I haven't seen reviews of the CX550M directly, only of a PSU that is supposed to be using the same platform.
http://www.jonnyguru.com/modules.php?name=NDReviews&op=Story6&reid=475
It's really good. Corsair finally managed to both get a decent PSU and then not overprice it like the did for the last 4 years.

#1417
Quake Champions doesn't really help me to figure it out. It's not released yet so there's no benchmarks.
A 1080 is within budget probably, if that doesn't cut it then there's nothing you could do anyway so why not. There's no kill like overkill. Just don't blame me when there's better GPUs for that price in half a year.

Read up on IPS / Lightboost / GSync/FreeSync.

You don't need watercooling, all in ones are worse than air coolers and a custom loop is too expensive and too much work. Yes, with the 6700K you should be able to stream.

I'll try to keep it fairly quiet.

You could get a better cooler if you want to but it's not necessary.
Slightly cheaper RAM.
Faster and cheaper SSD although it's still very slow for an SSD but that's just how TLC is.
Better PSU.

If you don't need SLI you can get that mobo and save the wifi card.

hey there
my friend is thinking of buying a computer for gaming. his budget is ~550. he has a monitor with hdmi so he'll need a graphics card that can do hdmi, and probably also dvi-d incase he wants to upgrade to a 144hz etc. i would say he wants to run tf2 on normal settings without a config or anything. he's more of a casual gamer so hard drive is alright and he will play other games as well. he wants a case with a power supply

if you have any questions to him let me know

by normal settings i mean he wants tf2 with the default settings when he first installs the game. i guess you can just say tf2 on high settings.

he wants ~60 fps

i would probably expect him to play other games like csgo and dota/league, maybe some melee on dolphin emulator. i wouldn't expect him to play any AAA games on this pc as he is mostly a console gamer.

it's so he doesn't have to buy a seperate power supply, but honestly it's fine if they are seperate as long as it doesn't go over his budget.

edit : by the way, he would rather have an nvidia rather than an amd. his words not mine

he does not have the money to make it currently but i wanted to give him a set build to think about instead of what he wants to get (a laptop). he doesn't know when to exactly build it but he said before 2017, so probably late 2016

Parts and prices will change signficantly until late 2016 though.
By then there might be a 1060 6GB or at least a 1060 3GB (or 1050, still not sure what they'll call it) available at a reasonable price.

Record locally

1080p 60 fps (im trying to convince him 144hz is worth the upgrade once they have the money) mine craft and other low power games he comes across. Settings medium. (He is okay with fps configs or playing on low settings)

My build is finally mostly finished:

CPU: i7 5960X 8 cores @ 4.2Ghz (will OC more later)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H110i GTX
RAM: 32GB G.Skill DDR4-2400
GPU: eVGA GTX 1080 FTW Edition
Motherboard: Asrock X99 Extreme4
SSD; Samsung 950 Pro M.2 512GB
Case: Thermaltake Core V71
PSU: Corsiar HX750 80+ Gold

I built it a few months ago but just got the GTX 1080 yesterday. Only reason I went with such a high end CPU is because my buddy that works @ Intel hooked me up. Still waiting on a 1TB SSD to add to the system.

What do you think about these i've chosen till now? are they good together? also i still need to pick a good CPU, a cheap quiet fan system, maybe a power supply with my budget of 800-850€. In case a good cpu would cost me too much where would you save money in this list?
Thanks you for any advice and feedback

Which CAD programs? As in would you benefit from Hyperthreading? If you don't know the name of the programs should be enough.

Are you going to overclock?

Which games? What settings/resolution/fps are you aiming for?

When are you going to buy it? As in fairly soon (<2 weeks) or is this just some planning a couple of months in advance to figure out if the budget is enough?

sorry but i don't know about Hyperthreading, i'm studying to become an engineer and these years i've been using NX by Siemens, but maybe i'll have to use other programs in the future

SetsulAre you going to overclock?

no

SetsulWhich games? What settings/resolution/fps are you aiming for?

i'd like to play something like overwatch, FIFA, more recent war games with 100 stable fps in med/high resolution

SetsulWhen are you going to buy it? As in fairly soon (<2 weeks) or is this just some planning a couple of months in advance to figure out if the budget is enough?

i need to spend 500€ of my budget within 4 weeks, so for that time at least i need to buy main components

Thank you very much for your advices and your patience

So I've looked at your previous post again and I'm a bit confused now.

lapobaldinimaybe a power supply with my budget of 800-850€.

What do you mean maybe a PSU? Are you going to reuse parts?

lapobaldinii need to spend 500€ of my budget within 4 weeks, so for that time at least i need to buy main components

At least 500€ or maximum 500€?
