I just need thoughts and suggestions on this overall build. The graphics card I will be getting one from a friend and everything else I will be purchasing myself. Just wondering if anyone had any other recommendations for the parts that would be of similar pricing or less.

Thanks a bunch!

What do you plan on using the build for? if it's only for gaming I'd recommend not getting an i7 since it's kind of useless for games.

Video/photo/music editing or CAD programs, it helps a lot.

Yeah I was planning on doing some sort of editing along with gaming with this computer. And I forgot to add that a family member was going to buy me the processor as a Christmas gift, so I just decided with an i7 for the build.

Better cooler, better PSU. Didn't know your budget so I tried to keep the price about the same.
Should probably also get a better case.

Would there be any particular case that you would recommend? I was only really looking at a case with some sort of blue color/lighting on it. And my budget is going to be around $950-$1000.

My budget is 1200 USD.
Edit: I picked the Razer DA but I'd like to buy a Zowie with a shape similar to the DA because I know Razer products don't last a lot. Maybe even a mouse with Cherry switches but I don't know much about those.

Option B, not as good for "looks like quake" low settings, better at higher quality and higher resolutions/DSR/render scaling >100% in overwatch:

Actually 1200 USD or still 1000 USD + shipping?

Have we talked about FreeSync?

That case won't improve by adding more than it's worth in fans. Either get a cheap case that comes with multiple fans or get a better, more expensive one. You can't replace quality with fans.

The Rosewill Photon is a bit weird and I wouldn't take the risk with other options available at similar prices.

Not going over the other peripherals for now.

Actually 1200 USD or still 1000 USD + shipping?

Have we talked about FreeSync?

That case won't improve by adding more than it's worth in fans. Either get a cheap case that comes with multiple fans or get a better, more expensive one. You can't replace quality with fans.

The Rosewill Photon is a bit weird and I wouldn't take the risk with other options available at similar prices.

Not going over the other peripherals for now.

Could use help picking out a Motherboard/Case. Mostly I'm paranoid I'd pick a combination of things that doesn't fit correctly. Also, price isn't really an issue, but happy to lower that RAM cost if it won't really make a difference.

So let me get this straight: You're going to spend 1200$ on a Titan X but want to lower RAM cost?

I need at least some sort of goal, because randomly throwing together the most expensive that fit isn't a good idea.

This should be a type 3 build: There's a set minimum performance goal, but money is a secondary concern so if upgrades make sense they get put in.
So if I knew what you're trying to do with this build it would help a lot.

Also when are you going to build, because Kaby Lake / Zen and possibly Vega will be released in early 2017.

Mmm, thanks. I want a fairly future proof system that can do VR/play games on reasonable settings with 60fps in 4-5 years with nothing more than one part upgrade (probably the CPU or adding a GPU when the price gets low?). Being able to do that at 4k would be ideal, but it's not a big concern and maybe that's unrealistic?

The benchmarks I looked at had Titan X Pascal at like 50% better than anything else, so I figured it would be my best shot at still having a solid card in 4 years. The only thing I saw that came close was SLI gtx 1080, which comes out to the same price.

I don't necessarily 'want' to lower RAM cost, I just don't know shit about it, and I was using that to illustrate my point that money wasn't a concern, but I wasn't trying to throw it away- so if I could spend 50% and get 90% of the performance, I would be happy. Mostly because I was under the impression it didn't matter anywhere close to as much as the CPU/GPU.

I would prefer to build this in the next month or two, because my current PC is getting some BSODs and can't even turn off without holding down the power button. I could be convinced to wait for next gen, but isn't everything usually extra expensive and hard to get for a bit? I was also reading some things saying that Kaby Lake will roll out pretty slowly, with the lower end versions first. I wouldn't want to wait 6 months.

So I just order some new parts to my new pc this black friday. But im starting to doubt that my PSU is enough for future overclocking matters or just general high comsumption usage. https://pcpartpicker.com/list/sTTnd6 (sorry i dont know how to link this properly). As you can see the approximate wattage usage is only 315 but from various reviews of the Corsair cxm 450 they dont recommend this for my type of usage. Such as gaming and overclocking. Whats your take on this? Is this enough or should I switch it out for something else?

Yep, type 3.

So the problem is it's better to replace the GPU (or add a second one, should explicit multi adapter and other options be widely supported by the time) rather than the CPU. After 3 years replacing the CPU most likely means replacing at least the motherboard as well, that's usually 400-500$. Obviously more if you go beyond the 300$ class of CPUs.
The other thing is CPUs don't improve much anymore (well, not quite, more on that later), whereas GPUs do.
Remember the original Titan? Or Titan Black? Or the previous Titan X?
Quick timeline:
02/2013 Titan, 1000$
11/2013 780 Ti, faster than Titan 700$, rip future proofing.
02/2014 Titan Black, 780 Ti with 6GB, ends up being slower than the 780 Ti due to more VRAM cutting into the power budget, 1000$. nVidia does not allow 780 Ti 6GB versions because they want you to pay 300$ for that.
09/2014 980, Titan Black performance, 550$
03/2015 Titan X, 1000$
06/2015 980 Ti, cut down Titan X, but again half the VRAM so it boosts higher and ends up being the same speed, 650$

For comparision:
06/2016 1060, roughly the same performance as the Titan Black, 300$.

You should see the pattern.
1. Don't buy a Titan, wait for the reasonably priced version.
2. Buy cheaper and upgrade more often if you can.
A 600$ GPU now and another 600$ GPU in 2-3 years will get you a much better performance in 4-5 years.

Now about the Titan X Pascal specifically.
In terms of hardware it's exactly 40% "larger" than the 1080. You can also guess that on a bigger GPU (+40%) with a power budget that's less than 40% larger the clocks are definitely not going to be higher. And that's exactly what happens. Then there's also the problem that nVidia doesn't want anyone cutting in on their profit margins so until recently they only sold the Titan XP themselves and still don't allow aftermarket coolers. So the 20-30% lead (depending on resolution) gets even smaller when compared to aftermarket 1080s.

But wait, there's more. 3584 seems like a strange number of cores, especially since the 1080 got 2560 and the 1060 got 1280. That's because the chip actually got 3840. You can already guess what's going to happen. Yep, a 1080 Ti or whatever they're going to call it or another Titan or both. Depending on what AMD offers. On that note, nVidia could sell the Titan XP for 1200$ until they got bored unless it got some competition. Guess when that's coming? First half of 2017, some say even Q1, but no one (probably not even AMD) is sure yet.
Bonus: Should AMD's new cards be able to beat the Titan XP, but not the full chip, so they need something cheaper than the XP, but can also afford to release another Titan, then think about what the VRAM size is going to be. Can't sell a 1080 Ti with 6GB when the 1080 already got 8GB. So unless they go with 9GB (which is possible but might be more expensive than 12GB), which is unlikely considering AMD is most likely going to offer 16GB (but at the very least 12GB), can't go on and on about "you can never have enough VRAM on a fast GPU) and then suddenly offer less on a faster GPU than your competitor, it's going to be 12GB for the 1080 Ti and 18 or 24GB for the new Titan.

So basically if I'm right in less than half a year there'll be GPU with the same or better performance, the same architecture, same VRAM for a lower price. That does not seem very future proofy to me.

I guess my point is you'd regret buying the Titan XP very soon.

Now onto CPUs: Kaby Lake is rolling out very slowly, but they started months ago. The i7-7700K etc. should be released at CES 2017 (early January) and definitely be widely (read: at normal prices) available in Q1, most likely already in February actually.

The other thing is Zen should happen around that time as well. And we're talking about 4 cores here, we're talking about up to 8 cores. No one can say for sure however how well they'll overclock though.

The i7-7700K will definitely be higher clocked than even the average overclock of the i7-6700K and should overclock better as well.

Then there's Skylake-X with up to 10 cores around the same time.

In early 2018 there'll be Coffee Lake with 6 cores so after a decade of 4 cores being the high end (<400$ though, you could always get more cores for xxxx$) we're moving to more cores again and there's no going back.

I can't guarantee that games will use more cores in the future, but it seems very likely. So if you want to "future proof" (I hate the word and it doesn't really work) then 4 cores might not cut it anymore. I mean for the next 2-3 years probably, but for 5 years probably not.

It's just not really a good time to buy now when better options are at worst 3 months away.

What I'd do is figure out the cause of the BSODs. If it's a software problem fix it, if it's a hardware problem fix it if it's cheap enough to fix. Judging by how much money you're willing to spend your current pc is probably worth a fair bit if it works. The resale value of broken pcs isn't nearly as good.

What reviews have you been reading?

It's a PSU. It doesn't care whether something is overclocked or not. It doesn't care if you're gaming or not. It doesn't even know. It just delivers power. That build is not going to use over 400W, even overclocked, so a 450W PSU is plenty.

I know there are some weird recommendations out there (e.g. nVidia recommending a 600W PSU for a 200W GPU) because some manufacturers decided to sell 250W PSUs as 500W PSUs, which obviously don't work when you try to actually draw >300W. The CXM 450 can deliver 450W (actually a bit more) so I wouldn't be concerned.

Thanks, well for the cooler I already order everything. So it's a little bit late for that. But talking about the PSU some people over on partpicker question its viability on games where the GPU goes on full load and the cpu is doing close to equally. But if you say this is not a problem. I wont have a problem for example OC the cpu to like 4.4 and slighty OC the gpu? Or is this pushing the limits? For example I saw some other gigabyte 1060 doing 200 w during full load 1440 p highest settings.

A 1060 drawing 200W seems rather unlikely.

120W at 2100MHz and on 4K.

Would love to see the source on that 200W 1060.

pcpartpicker uses rather conservative estimates, on stock clocks that build won't even break 300W.

Actually 1200 USD or still 1000 USD + shipping?

Have we talked about FreeSync?

That case won't improve by adding more than it's worth in fans. Either get a cheap case that comes with multiple fans or get a better, more expensive one. You can't replace quality with fans.

The Rosewill Photon is a bit weird and I wouldn't take the risk with other options available at similar prices.

Not going over the other peripherals for now.

Actually 1200.

Nope.

I just added those fans because I need a well ventilated case. I live in Colombia and half the year it's cold as fuck with a lot of rain and the other half it's a melting heat.

Alright.

I did some research and decided to go with the Zowie EC2-A it has the perfect shape and size for my hands.

In the list I posted before I decided to go for the i3 because you said it's basically the same as the i5 because TF2 doesn't need more cores and I though I wouldn't be able to buy the i5 without spending more than 1200 USD. Those extra cores are perfect for me because I'm going to need some extra power for rendering my animations. So this is the build with the fans that I REALLY need:

Yep, that's 200W for everything.

Nope, not even DVI to VGA adapters will work because they need DVI-I (combined analog/digital) and new cards now only have DVI-D (strictly digital).
You need either an active adapters (input lag ahoy) or a new monitor. Or a different GPU.

#1875
Ok, then I'd just get the 6600.
Changed the PSU because the deal on the 550W version ended, but is still going on the 650W version.

The CM SickleFlow isn't that good though. Changed fans as well. If you want significantly quieter ones you have to spend a bit more. https://pcpartpicker.com/product/htnG3C/scythe-case-fan-sm1225gf12shp

Can you even choose what cable you buy? HDMI cable is HDMI cable. Anything you buy in store now will work.

JanSGNmCan you even choose what cable you buy? HDMI cable is HDMI cable. Anything you buy in store now will work.

Tbh Im not sure. I only know that there is different types of models doing different stuff. For example 2.0 can handle more bandwitdh than 1.4 iirc. Which basically means you can play at higher resolutions and hz. But im not so sure how this work or if im even correct. Feel free to correct me.

Yes, newer versions support higher bandwidth. But cables are the same. And any regular cable you buy today will be good.

Hey, this is my very first build. I'm not too sure about this, but whatever. Any tips are appreciated! https://ca.pcpartpicker.com/list/myc3m8

I need a new processor and GPU for my computer, along with new memory. The main games I wanna play is TF2, The Division and Black Ops 3 along with other games. What do you recommend? I've heard the intel processors are good, but I'm not sure... thanks in advance
Also anything that will have good sales on Christmas!

Like #1880/#1884 said there is no difference* between cables. HDMI is backwards compatible so if you connect a 1.2 device to a 2.0 device it'll just use HDMI 1.2.

*Shielding makes a difference once you go above a certain length, but I doubt your monitor is 10m away. So even the cheapest cable you can find will work.

It exists. With the 1200$ you could afford it.
The cheapest 144Hz FreeSync monitor right now is the Asus MG248Q, which should support Lightboost as well. Colours aren't great, but that's expected from a 200$ 144Hz monitor.

Budget?
What are you going to use it for?

#1886
Considering only AMD and Intel even make processors and AMD hasn't released any new ones in 4 years (they will in 2017 though) I don't think you'd have a choice even if the intel processors were terrible.

Do you have a budget?

Yeah, I'm on a pretty tight budget. It's mostly for playing TF2 and CS:GO and I'm hoping for some good framerates, at trash settings.

Would you care to share what that budget is or is it a secret?

When do you plan on building it?

I'm looking to get an Intel Core i7-6700K and a new motherboard and I was wondering if anyone could recommend me one. Also looking to get 16GB DDR4 RAM and looking for recommendations there as well.
Not sure if it matters at all but I have a 600W power supply. Thanks.
