Might be buying a new PC


Spiritwalker

Recommended Posts

Yeah I think my old rig needs to be replaced. I earned some money this summer so I've tried to put together a new build.

 

I will mostly be playing videogames at 1440p, preferably Fallout 4 on Ultra.

Let me know what you think. I'm not really experienced with building PCs so any help is appreciated.

 

There's a german retailer that can provide me with nearly the exact same built, but already put together for 100€ extra. Is that worth it?

 

If I order all these parts, does that mean I will need nothing else to put together a working PC with running OS? Does it need any sort of expertise to put this together, or should I be able to do it with maybe some help from my dad?

Skylake doesn't offer much over Haswell, so I'd go with a 4690k/4790k (right now, a 4690k is more or less just as good as a 4790k in the majority of games, but DX12 aims to end that...but only time will tell how that actually plays out) instead, a cheaper ssd, an R9 390x since it will get similar performance to a 980 for quite a bit less money, and a better psu. Oh, and 8gb of ram is still plenty if you're not rendering.

Thanks for response, I will defo keep this in mind since you seem to really know your stuff when it comes to hardware.

Gathering a few more opinions just to make sure though.

Everything seems fine with the build but i'd consider a WD black over a WD Blue and a different SSD(Samsung 850 Pro)

Adata makes excellent SSDs, and there is no reason to spend literally twice as much for something which isn't noticeably better. Same goes for a WD Black, they're not worth the extra cost.

Is AMD still doing what they did with the R9 2xx series where the non x version was just slightly underclocked than the x version?

The 290/280/260/250 are cutdown 290x/280x/260/250 (NOT just an underclocked). Only the 270x was an overclocked version of the 270, all the other 'x' variants are actually different chips. (and yes, the same applies to the 300 series since they're the exact same cards). 

 

390x = 290x

390 = 290

380x = a new release...so probably a non-cutdown version of the 380 (but it was just announced, so only time will tell)

380 = 285

370 = 265

360 = 260

Ah my bad. I'd still rather buy a non x version and just overclock it and get similar performance.

Except that's not how it works.....a 390x/290x/280x/260x/250x are quite a bit faster than a 390/290/280/260/250 respectively. Plus you can then overclock the X variants as well making them even faster.

Similar performance to a stock 390x I mean. 390 has what ~300 shaders less than a 390x and is 8% slower last time I checked. But of course if there's a deal on the 390x then throw the 390 out the window.
