New $2500 AUD build

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I have made a post awhile back asking for advice in making a new PC but I never committed to that build because of financial issues but now I'm pretty much all good to start building a new one. I don't need it asap, I'm happy to wait till the end of the year if it means waiting for new components to come out but I'd like to at least start purchasing little by little. First and foremost my budget is $2500 AUD. The only things I'm looking for really are CPU, GPU MOBO, RAM and PSU. The stuff I intend to do with this build is, gaming, screen recording/streaming, image and video editing. So I feel I'll need a decent CPU that can handle all those without an issue, I also wouldn't mind getting some monitor recommendations but I will not add that towards the budget. Thank you guys, all input is appreciated!

How much do you want to spend on a monitor?
And res size or feature you want?

And is there any shop you want to use like pccasegear or will any shop do?

I don't mind spending under or a little over $500 AUD I'd like a 1440p monitor. I'm hoping if I get myself an AMD card I could get a monitor with freesync. In regards to shops, I'm not too fussed, pccasegear, mwave and msy are usually the places I buy my stuff from. However, if you can find cheaper prices from a different store I wouldn't mind buying it from another place either.

The Asus MG279Q is a 27 inch 1440P monitor with 144 Hz refresh rate and Freesync.
Just note that Asus and everyone else for that matter have a lot of problems with their IPS panels.

Problems are mostly with IPS glow and backlight bleed.
Its not every single monitor but its a lot so keep in mind that you might be getting one bad enough that you need to return it.

Acer is not much better then Asus so it all comes down to luck.
I just bought an Asus PG279Q and i have seen so many users complain about the problems it has that i actually expected to get a bad one.

But i was really lucky and i got one that was flawless.

I'll definitely look into that monitor! What's the benefits of an IPS monitor compared to an LED
post #6 of 43
IPS is in an LCD technology.

TN is another LCD technology.

Oh that makes sense! Anyways, would you happen to have any recommendations for the rest of the build?
post #8 of 43
I am not sure about what the prices are on hardware down in Australia.
But going by what you said i would go with an X99 based system.

X99 has just seen a refresh so if it not out of your budget you could get an Intel Core I7 6800K or the 6850K.
Not sure what you want from a motherboard so cant really recommend anything, i always buy Asus or Gigbayte boards myself so maybe you like the new Asus X99 Strix?

For video cards the Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 and GTX 1080 has just been released so i would grab one of those.
Again not sure what you want from your video card so cant really recommend a certain card.

I've only owned one custom built pc in my lifetime and it has an asus striker II extreme, it's actually pretty good so I may go with an asus again. As for video cards, I did mention earlier that I wanted a monitor with freesync so I believe going with an AMD card would be a better choice. Maybe the fury x?

I'm in a similar situation and will share what I've learned so far.

CPU get either a 5820k or 6800k. They are similar so either get the cheaper 5820k or if the 6800k is only $50 more get it over the 5820 and enjoy a small gain.

MOBO if mATX get the asrock fatal1ty 3.1 or evga micro2. If ATX wait till more info on the new asrock boards in july since they come with two m.2 m key slots for less than $300.

GPU r480 will have the best price preformance should get by until hbm2. Freesync and gsync don't matter much beyond 90 fps so can run green or red when hbm2 hits and you push past 90fps at 1440p.

RAM it gets complicated here. 5820k runs 3200 ram nicely if the IMC on the cpu is strong enough. 3333 ram I've read does better on the 6800k. You will see minimum fps gains with it or you will get weak IMC cpu and run it at 2400. Check mobo qvl for compatible ram either way. Much to learn about strap 100 vs 125 and manual timings over xmp.

PSU don't need more than gold rated but titanimum rated ones are coming out as low as 600w.
