trying to build a new intel/nvidia system. No idea where to start

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
heh building a PC is harder then I remember. p Anyway, here is what I have put together so far:




Now, to be fully honest, the last time i bought and assembled a brand new computer, we were still using AGP slots overclocking our p4's. So its been a while, and I don't really even know where to start. I mean, I got that from newegg, and I choose newegg because I like their shipping. (I need someone that does custom clearance, and, a place where I can buy it all at 1 location, and newegg is really all I know for that)


But anyway, on to the PC. Essentially, I currently have a xfx 650w psu, a 240gb SSD, and a fan or 2. The rest, I need to get, which I have in the screenshot.

How do the parts look? would you's change anything? Personally, I don't really like the mobo options, the reviews themselves are good, but it has integrated graphics port, which I find wasteful, seems I wouldn't use it. Other then that, I personally like the look of everything. It looks like its all compatible I think. But yea. would love to hear some recommendations.

So, is Newegg a good source? is there anything that might be better/cheaper? (while still retaining the 'one stop shop' deal)

oh yea. I am on a budget of about $1000 CAD, or 1100 with a case. ( am looking at the Three Hundred's.. I like the look of those cases), and I am also thinking about the future. I want to be able to upgrade this later on with minimal effort/minimal $$$

Thanks. Cant wait to hear from yas smile.gif

I don't think it's a very good idea to get a Z170 board if you are getting a locked processor, as you are better off saving money and going with a H170 or B150 based board. With the money you save there, you can get a 4GB GTX 960 which you will be much happier with as 4GB VRAM has pretty much taken over as the standard and unless you are fine with low-res textures then the 2GB won't cut it.

Skylake has been proven to really love faster RAM in general, so if you can get a H170 or B150 board that still supports up to DDR4-2666 then you should also get some 2666 RAM to pair with that board. I'm unable to find any B150 or H170 boards that allow higher than 2133, so it's probably best to stick with RAM that is that speed.

So based on what I've said, this is what I would do.

Converted the total to CAD and I get $880

hmm thanks smile.gif

How is the skylake itself? Is it a good cpu to get? I mean, essentially, I picked it because its a 'new' design. it also it has pretty rad reviews on newegg, but I try not to let that excite me too much..

asrock tho... I gotta say I am much more fond with asus boards. ive lived with asus boards for 15 years now and they've yet to let me down.

How would a lesser board be for future proofing? I mean, when I think of it, the mobo is the heart of the computer. The CPU, vid card, and RAM I feel I will end up replacing with better designs that have yet to be released, which also might be better at taking an overclock. The mobo needs to be good enough to survive at least 1 upgrade cycle if you kno what I mean wink.gif



But yea, thanks for the tips smile.gif that website is pretty cool, I am going to have to register there, and mess around.

So, I was fooling with the builder site, and came up with this:

Factoring in taxes, its something like $1250 CAD. That is just scraping by. I prolly could do that, but, that is tight. lol damn Americans and their artificially inflated currency.. Exchange rate is brutal.. :'(

OP. 2133 is slow ddr4 ram. Min ddr4 you should go with by this point is 2666.

http://www.overclock.net/t/1586767/digital-foundry-memory-overclocking-and-how-it-affects-fps-in-8-different-games



Ram speeds matter a lot when gaming in CPU limited tasks. Can be the difference between holding 60+ running smooth, and dealing with screen tearing or Vsync stutter.

wow I would have not have thought that RAM speed would make that huge of a difference in FPS.

And I wasn't sure if the cpu was compatible with faster RAM (on the intel ARK site it says its compatible with 2133mhz ram.. so thats what I got)

But yea, 3200mhz ram isn't much more expensive, so thats what I will get, and hopefully I will be able to overclock it from there.

Thanks smile.gif

For a while ram speed wasn't thought of as making that large of a difference. Recently it has come to light that in CPU intensive spots in games it can have a meaningful impact. Luckily with the current price on ram, opting for the faster models usually doesn't mean spending that much more. biggrin.gif

So ive decided if im going to spend $1000 plus on a new computer, I might as well go all the way and get a nice unlocked skylake, and get a i5-6600k, and a heatsink for an extra $150, which I should be able to have some fun with tongue.gif

Anyway, apparently they don't come with a heatsink, which leaves me to get an aftermarket one. I checked, and there is a huge amount of em! I know I don't want water cooling, that is just too much hassle, and I know that the mid-atx tower should hopefully have enough room for all but the most monster heatsinks. So what is a good value heatsink? something thats not hugely expensive, but still good enough to get a reasonable overclock out of the 6600k.

Thanks smile.gif

Might want to ask about which cooler to get here...

http://www.overclock.net/f/76/cooling

Big thing you should decide is if you want to go Air, or, AIO. Air being a metal heatsink and AIO being an "all in one" closed loop water cooler.

ya I am totally gonna go air, I don't want to risk something breaking and having water leak everywhere.. Been looking, and think I will just get the hyper 212 evo. Its reasonably cheap, and the reviews look good.

So yea.. Pretty pumped.. got it all planned out, and here is what I will be looking at:

And then I have my own 650w XFX psu, and a 250gb SSD, which will form a fully functional PC which I can install win 10 onto. Hopefully I am not forgetting anything? Maybe a couple extra 120mm fans, but, that can wait I suppose.

I just gotta call newegg and see if they can add the heatsink, case, and gpu to the 'bundle', as it might offer more savings hopefully (they have a bundle creator thing, but I cant add those parts)

im quite excited lol tongue.gif itll be like a second christmas tongue.gif But seriously, the last time I got a PC this new (as in not 5 year old tech) was back in '97.. I still remember that day, thinking how awsome the pentium 233mhz with MMX was, and how great it was to have 64mb of ram, and a 6.4gb hard drive.. internet was via 33.6k dialup haha lol those were the days frown.gif I miss POD racer, and the old stickdeath.
