Nice thread
thanks anon




for a budget build? i'm looking at the i3-6100 this will replace my budget build from 8 years ago and will probably be used for that much time.

i'm not mad, but i'm disappointed.

Your wwlcome
If I go with a DDR4 i'll probably use 2133 modules and in case it's DDR3 I'll use 1600 ones. Not even sure if it's worth bothering with DDR4 for a budget build desu.

Shitposting aside
I want to get this for a flight sim rig
Dcs and what not
I don't really see anything wrong with it. What are you using this PC for?
I'm not expert in builds or anything but if you want go go with a cpu that cheap you might as well pick a G3258 (OCd to 4.0ghz) or a newer pentium.
It'll provide better options for upgrade, run cooler and save money on the energy bill.
I don't see the appeal of the FX-4300 or Athlon x4 people seem to post in these partpicker threads. They are not bad CPUs but there are better options now even if it costs slightly more.

Just light coding and enventually some emulated game or /vg/agdg demo.
Don't get the supernova Nex, the supernova GS and G2 are simply much better
oh, yeah my cart is a g2 I think. that one in in the pcpartpicker list is just a placeholder.
Thanks gor the help
I need insight on the monitor im sticking with amd all the way
>sticking with amd all the way
you're wasting your money then

Zen is the savor
Soon even you will see the light comrad
hasn't it already been announced that they will be slower than skylake other than the top sku's?
How do
they're basically copying intel, you know.
Thars like saying the f86 coppied the mig 15
Stop, you just fucked up.
I'm considering not getting a GPU at all and sticking with on-board until pascal blows my mind or something. do you think that'd be the way to go?
Zen is the only way to game on igpus
can't we have one thread without a meme
you're right. OP should be using a 950. 950 is better value than 970, and that's a fact.
Its not a meme intel igpus have goten better but zen is best
We must not forget without amd, intel would be nothing
Look I too want Zen to succeed, but it is very unlikely AMD will pull Haswell+ level of performance out of the ass in a single generation. AMD also stated they do not want to be "the cheaper one" anymore so expect Zen CPUs to cost about as much as their Intel counterparts, except with higher TDP.
Why don't you get a 6 or 8 core AMD CPU instead then?
if Zen doesn't do well, AMD is literally going to die and Intel will be a legitimate monopoly, dude. no joke. we all want Zen to succeed, fanboys of both sides hope AMD doesn't fuck this up.

Sure, why not. I enjoy being ridiculed.
I already have storage before anyone asks.
We will see they are gona pull it out there ass
For some reson and is better at encryption
Dont need it plus the monies
Amd leases out X86_64 to intel if amd dies intel goes with it
Anyone know how good is the MSI Z170-A PRO? Read a lot of bad things about MSI but I like the features it gives for the money.
Mostly want to know about OC
Should I buy a 4790K, wait until a 6700K comes back in stock, or go insane with a 5820K?

Pick one.
everything is terrible, truly
>multi score of like 13,000
>not insane
that is insane
i would build something way different. your choices are just weird
Well surely that's personal taste, anon?

16GB of DDR3 1600 costs like $70 maximum today.

why the fuck are you picking a 4690 when the 4690K is LITERALLY $6 more?

that cooler just isn't that great for the money you're spending

980, let alone with a reference cooler? what the fuck are you thinking?

ALSO, why the FUCK are you buying a $60 cooler in the first fucking place if you're NOT buying a K and NOT buying a Z97?

your shit is all fucked up and you don't make sense.
The cooler is perfectly adequate, but not for overclocking, ESPECIALLY in a case this small.

Reference cooler is a much better choice for the NCase. Look into it a little bit if you're so skeptical.

Repostan from >>52676367

what kind of Skylake Z170 motherboard is best with an Intel Skylake i5?
The most expensive one.
this, but you don't need to spend more than like $150 to do everything you need to do. near $100 and under is sort of russian roulette, I think.

are the mobos below 100$ just not worth it? would they possibly break easily?
They just don't have the same quality to the components. Once you hit like $200, it's just flair and features you will probably not use. ~$150 is the sweet spot of high quality but no bullshit features, I think.

I'd appreciate some feedback, I barely get any
reason for the 850 W is because I want to get another gpu in sli later on
>tfw want to go with amd so i can use zen
>tfw don't want to have spent money on a dead platform if zen fails
i have the msi 980 ti, the i5-6600k, no regrets and a be quiet cooler.
i would avoid kingston out of principle (they switched to cheaper parts after getting good reviews for their ssds), though and go with corsair lpx instead.

i forgot to mention that acer has bad quality control. get a dell with the same specs and save a few bucks. the s2716dg is the best tn panel on the market and dell is known for great monitors and quality control.
Cheap mobos are fine if you intend on upgrading your system again in 1.5-2 years when it starts to fail.

I've had purchased a number of ~100 main boards and they never last past the 2.5 year mark.
Dell doesn't have any 144hz 1440p IPS as far as I know

oh, sorry. i thought the acer was TN, the amozon site didn't mention IPS for some reason. my bad.
I only chose this screen because it fits all my criteria
there's only one other screen with these specs on the market, it's an asus, and it costs more, so I chose this
never had an Acer monitor before
right now I own a Dell Ultrasharp by the way
Don't worry. Zen will use AM4 and FP4 sockets, so nothing you buy now will be upgradeable to it.
then that's your best bet. just be aware that you might have to RMA it when the IPS glow is too bad. as i said before, acer has pretty bad QC. good luck with the panel lottery.
personally i prefer TNs for gaming, but that's just me.
>get budget skylake cpu
>zen is successful and matches i5 haswell or maybe skylake performance
>intel drops prices to avoid losing market

uying Nvidia like mad not understanding they're fully committed to planned obsolescence.
>Furthermore buying a meme card.

I thought we all learned this when Nvidia fucked over Kepler. Fuckin sheep.

>inb4 windows botnet
windows 10 is vista tier garbage. it offers no benefits over 8.1, requires more resources, has more bugs, spies on you and basically you're an idiot. there's a reason it only got 3 stars on amazon, not even technology retards like it.
I need advice picking a PSU. It has to be a non-modular SFX one.

- 1x i5 6600k, no overclock
- 1x GTX 980
- 1x pexhdcap
- 2x 8 gb ddr4
- 1x SSD
- 2x 3.5" HDD 7200tr/min
- 1x laptop slim ODD

How much power would I need for all of this?
This is my build
The drives aren't that great for playing games off. Grab some 7200RPM drives that are preferably not Seagate.

Also, the PSU is a tad too much, get a good quality Seasonic ~650W

>3.5 GB


>$60 in case fans
>won't shell out for a 4690k or a 6600

bad build
The segate drives I chose are actually good and reliable for storage, while I intend for. Backblaze testings showed these segate drive having low chance of failing

>buying windows

are you actually retarded?

You can go cheaper on the PSU there's no way you're using even 500W

Get an aftermarket cooler

I wouldn't vouch for corsair SSDs
>Adding a GPU later
>Just chose whatever RAM and SSD

I mean with a GPU, especially if it's nvidia. Use a calculator.

>just chose whatever RAM and SSD

then finish your build and come back nerd
Oh, I'm not sure how many games you can fit on that SSD if that's the case. Storage wise, they're no worries. I just saw the 390 and the small SSD and thought you'd be running some games at least off them
You're probably right about the case fans.
However, I am definitely not overclocking in an NCase, and I'll need a new motherboard for a 6600. (The mobo is from a previous build)
I hav ebuilt the computer already, I made a mistake on getting that overkill PSU, but all well at least its more future proof right?
