New Intel PC Build ( 700 USD)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi folks,
My old man is in the US so this is my chance to get a new PC build. Main reason is that my motherboard has a broken PCIE so I will sell my current PC. right now i think the best value intel CPU to get would be a i5 or i7 and a Z170 LGA 1151 board that , im not sure about the Mo/bo so id like to know what you'd recommend. The idea is to use it mostly for gaming, this is what i got listed so far:

I could also go for Kingston Ram instead of Gskill, which one is better?

Another option is to go for another Cooler instead of Hyper 212, like :
Cryorig: https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dcomputers&field-keywords=Cryorig+H5+Universal+be+quiet&rh=n%3A541966%2Ck%3ACryorig+H5+Universal+be+quiet

or Be Quiet! Shadow Rock Slim


SSD would be one of these 2:
Samsung 750: https://www.amazon.com/Samsung-750-EVO-2-5-Inch-MZ-750500BW/dp/B01G844L88/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1472970921&sr=8-4&keywords=ssd+samsung+750+evo

Sandisk X400: https://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-X400-SATA-512G-SD8SB8U-512G-1122/dp/B0196FPT1Y/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1472970852&sr=8-1&keywords=Sandisk+X400+512GB

What do you think is best?
I look forward to hearing from you

RAM is RAM. I would prioritize my spending by capacity, then frequency, then timings. The sweet spot these days is around 3000 MHz, as in there's tangible performance benefit up to that point with diminishing returns thereafter. I usually recommend a 2x8GB 3000 MHz kit like this.

The Cryorig H7 is a direct competitor to the Hyper 212 Evo and is actually a bit better, both being 120mm coolers. The H5 and Shadow Rock Slim are 140mm coolers. If you want to save a bit of money, go with the H7.

For SSDs, I think the X400 is the best bang for your buck at the moment.
