4k gaming rig need help - Page 3

post #21 of 76
I'm liking your choices.

Don't go for high clocked RAM, I only mentioned it because I wasn't sure how all-out you were going with this. Get whatever's cheapest, or at least whatever has the best price-to-performance. Don't waste your money on the 3200.

As for the graphics card, I've never heard of problems with Gigabyte cards- often they're quoted as one of the best and most reliable manufacturers. EVGA, on the other hand, has had cards catch on fire, overheat, and other issues that cause an official recall. Nothing against either company from me- I just don't see why EVGA is superior to Gigabyte.

I just made a PCPartPicker list... you CAN get the 1080Ti. It will require a cheaper case, slower memory (2666MHz instead of 3200), and general smarter spending on the rest of the parts.

You can decide whether you want a proprietary cooler or not: but the Wraith Spire cooler is fabulous from what I've read, and I've seen an article claiming it can hit a stable overclock on the 1700 at 4 GHz.
The board I picked is full ATX size, has 6 PCIe slots (two 3rd Gen 16x slots), and has two M.2 interfaces with one of which supporting 3rd Gen PCIe x4 speeds.
I picked a 250GB Intel 600p M.2 SSD to go with it for the boot drive, and a 2TB Seagate Barracuda for HDD storage. Obviously you can play around with the sizes, maybe 500GB M.2 + 1 TB HDD or just a 1TB M.2.

NOTE: The extra $90 on top is because the prices are not all accurate (says $140 for your $110 case), and you can probably cut corners in other ways.
I think this is a pretty dang nice rig, however. If I were you I'd get a $40 case and not worry about such aesthetics... but there's other solutions, such as eBay, reusing older parts, etc.

You forgot its $1500 with a monitor not without

Never heard of problems with Gigabyte before?
What was those 5 weeks of hell i had tried fixing the problem with my defective Gigabyte GTX 1070 Xtreme Gaming card?

Not only are EVGA superior their warranty and service are far superior as well, i know first hand how good Gigabyte so called service is
Their cards also look a lot better unlike ugly as sin over the top in your face look the new Gigabyte cards has

As for EVGA it was only a few cards that overheated and the models with the problem where called back and fixed, they even made a new model with 9 temperatur sensors and a fuse so the card wont damage the rest of the system if it dies so that problem wont happen again

Never ever going to recommend Gigabyte again after all the problems with not only my video card but my Gigabyte motherboard as well
And then there is the Gigabyte RX480 G1 Gaming i bought for my nephew which overheated so much that card would always throttle forcing me to download a new VBIOS to fix the damm card

Gigabyte SUCK and so does their quality control! it started a short while ago but Gigabyte has taken a huge nosedive in quality
One problem i could forgive them for but 3-4 defective products in a row?

There is a good reason why Gigabyte is cheaper then everyone else you get what you pay for

Edit: if you dont like EVGA get something else like Asus / MSI / Zotac / Gainward / Galax / Galit / Inno3d / PNY or ANYTHING else just not Gigabyte

MSI B350 TOMAHAWK AM4

EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 08G-P4-6286-RX FTW GAMING ACX 3.0, 8GB

I am happy with this, it's a little bit over my budget, but I feel like it would be worth it, I chose the ram, sadly it's abit more expensive than the other kits that are that same speed, but apparently this is the only one thats almost guranteed to run stable at 3200. And I chose the board because I don't need all the extra bells and whistles and maybe it will be enough for the a decent overclock.

Question though, do you think I will be fine with a Corsair H 60 water cooler, or should I get the h110 or something with the larger radiator?

I bought 32GB of 3000Mhz memory for $10 cheaper than that 16GB set you linked. There is several 16GB 3000Mhz sets for $110 which is about top end before it gets to be a complete waste. Anything in 2666-3000 would be your best bet and put that money toward something more noticeable like 1080ti or Gsync, SSD ect...

As for cooling, the Noctua dual tower heatsinks would be your best bet.

Also, another vote against Gigabyte. I'v never had DOA computer parts until I bought from them and had repeated failures across several different products. Last month my brother had them ship a brand new replacement R9 290 that died within an hour, and the original 290 he had came with a heatsink that kept thermal throttling because of physical defects. The only upside was they let him swap the heatsinks and send the DOA card back with the bad heatsink installed on it.

Damn, didn't realize Gigabyte was so hated. My only experience was a few comments I've seen around saying their motherboards are fabulous and the only ones that people trust.

Get any 1080Ti you want. The Gigabyte one was the cheapest but not by much. They'll all be more or less the same, overclock and temps aside.

Also, confused by the statement about the monitor. Is it $1500 + the price of the monitor or $1500 for the whole thing, monitor included?
post #25 of 76
Their motherboards are probably better then their video cards which has a ton of problems across many of their AMD and Nvidia models
Maybe i would some day buy another Gigabyte motherboard and thats a big maybe but never ever one of their video cards

And its $1500 with a monitor included which means everything must be $1500 or under

Guys, I wanted to thank you all for all the post and the information and advice.

Just now checking in, just walked in from work.

To clarify, the 1500 was for the cpu mobo ram and GFX card, the monitor I am getting is separate from that budget.

Wanted to say after careful consideration, and taken everything into account. This is the build, just fixing to order it now at this very moment. I wanted a 1800x, but going with 1700, and a cheaper mobo, allowed me to throw in a 1tb ssd, which I am very excited for, as at the moment all i have is a samsung evo 128 gb ssd along with a 1tb WD Black.

So here she is complete parts. Mind you, I already have a PSU 650w EVGA Gold I'm going to transfer into the new build.

AMD RYZEN 7 1700 8-Core
MSI B350 TOMAHAWK AM4
CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 3000
MSI GeForce GTX 1080
Mushkin Enhanced Reactor 2.5" 1TB
Noctua NH-D15 SE-AM4
NEW NZXT H440 STEEL Mid
ASUS MG279Q Black 27" IPS 144 Hz 4ms Adaptive-Sync (Free Sync)

I have kept this build I'm on for almost five years or over now, and I like to keep the build about 6 years, so I just hope this 1700 will do that just fine for me as all I do is game, watch youtube, twitch, movies etc.

Any reason you aren't looking at G-Sync other than the higher cost? I went from no G-Sync to G-Sync and now back to no G-Sync because I thought it wasn't really a big deal. I was incredibly wrong, I can tell such a difference and really miss it every time I fire up a game.

Everything else looks good though, just a thought.

You hit the nail on the head, literally just the cost, and I am on 1080p at the moment and want to get to 2k, seeing as how 4k just isn't in my price range at all! And also the fact I really only want a IPS monitor, and the IPS G Sync are way to high for me.

Well if you haven't ever experienced it, you won't be too sad about not having it... But if you could get it in the budget I would seriously suggest it. Now feesl like the right time since you are upgrading any way. All personal preference and budget applicable any way, just my opinion. thumb.gif

Acer $599 with G-Sync https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824011082

Asus $669 With G-Sync https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236797

AOC $649 With G-Sync https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824160298

Not sure how much you are getting the MG279Q for but it's not far off those prices on newegg any way.

Enjoy your new rig either way!

That one there is about only 60 more dollars than the MG279Q but would you say it would be worth sacrificing the IPS panel for the TN panel?
