So many choices, but try to get whatever hardware is compatible enough with your motherboard along with price-performance ratios that may suit you well.

yo man, just wait for the new AMD RYZEN processor, it will be release in a week, its much more budget , with about 15% increase performance compare to the current i5 or i7 that cost more. be patience , u can get more bang for your buck!


you are right ! https://pcpartpicker.com/products/cpu/#sort=a4&s=59

$329.. that's about same price as the i7 7700k.. except the Ryzen is 8 cores and only 65W TDP ?

thank you!

looks like i'll be starting the whole list over

i will but it will be a while though..

https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JnYXZ8

this is 2x more than what i was willing to put down for a pc + monitor

I'll be joining the PCMR with this new PC


Ryzen will come with its own CPU cooler

u dont need to, if u just want to oc it to 3.7-3.9[on all core] and it wont help much as u r taking the b350m chipset mobo.
i dont think a b350m can be stable after 3.9 max. those vrm gonna be cooked if u go beyond 4 ghz.
the cooler bundle with the r7 1700 is a 95w tdp, while the cpu is only 65w tdp, the cooler capability exceed the need of the cpu.

Zyren 1700 is maxed out at 3.7Ghz so it might be ok

and as of today, that's the only motherboard available for the Ryzen on pcpartpicker

i'm guessing they will have more available over the next few months.

Depending on what generation of the i5/i3 you're looking at, the G4600T will be close or better in performance. You can always swap the G4600T with the G4560 if you want to save a few dollars. Outside of that, the PC you've put together is fine for the purpose you have in mind.

The only criticism would be to upgrade the graphics card to something a little beefier. For about $50 more, you can get the 1050 Ti instead of the rather outdated GTX 750 Ti. It'll definitely allow for 6-8x native resolution. The issue with laptop GPUs (graphic cards) is that they're usually underclocked and can't crank out the same specs as their desktop counterparts - so you can kind of ignore the experience you're having with the 940MX if you get the 1050 Ti.

As for the monitor? Up to you. I'm picky as hell about monitors because it feels like an important component of PC gaming that people tend to forget. But not everybody is going to buy a $1,200 monitor like I have, either.


$1200 for a monitor ?

is it 240hz or something

btw.... what is jet.com ? I asked around but none of my friends bought anything from them before so i'm a little skeptical about them..

Are they like Rakuten (Buy.com) ? a place for third party merchants to sell their products?

I just want to know if the products i'm buying from them are NEW with proper warranty

thanks

Never heard of those sites. If it's registered as an authorized seller/distributor with OEMs, then you're good to go. If it isn't, proceed at your own risk.

I've used jet.com a handful of times in the past for parts, you do get the standard manufacturer's warranty with these parts, just that you'd have to deal with them (the manufacturer) directly and jet.com won't do anything to get involved.

They're a bit like Rakuten for America, yeah.

i think Wal-mart bought Jet.com


as long they will provide manufactuer's warranty then it's fine.. I don't want to buy these computer parts "as is" from some third party merchants..


btw.. this was quick :)

there's some glitch with the quotes in your post there

$700-$2000 for a graphic card would be going in those $4000-$8000 gaming pc build

if i have 4-8K to build a gaming i would put most of it toward the principal of my mortgage instead..

there's such a thing as overkill with gaming.. 144+ fps

can our eyes even tell the difference when fps is that high ?

fixed. the format of this forum will take some time getting used to

144fps monitors (1080p) are cheaper than i thought it would be

https://pcpartpicker.com/products/monitor/#T=1,5&H=144,240&sort=a8&r=192001080

i don't know any 144hz monitor so i don't know.

1 more thing before u go and assemble a new ryzen cpu based pc, alot of benchmark is out, and the mhz of the ram, is very important, as it been shown that it increase the performance by alot, ryzen need at least a 3000 mhz ddr4 to push the cpu to its optimal performance. good luck on your build.

so DD4- 3000 and up ?

not all motherboards for Ryzen will support DD4-3000 and up though..

AM4 motherboard that will support those type of RAM are around $90+ also 16GB of DD4-320 is around $130 ?

I'll keep an eye out for sales..
