Ok so my budget is 1300-1550 U.S. dollars and I was wondering what I need for my Pc. What I want is a 1440Hz Asus computer, and Gtx 1070 Oc, and an i7 6700, and a at leat 1.5t of storage both Ssd and the other drive. I also need a network adapter my friend said because my wifi router is down stair and my computer will be upstairs. Lastly, he said because it's my first time I want an Optical Drive to download Windows easily? please tell me if his information is true and if there is anything else I should add

1440Hz Asus computer

Do you mean a 1440p monitor, or a 144hz monitor?

You don't need an optical drive to install windows, it's actually faster if you use a USB. You can use the Windows 10 Media Creation tool to make a USB into a boot drive for windows. You need a 4GB USB stick or higher, once windows has finished downloading onto the USB you can just plug it into a new build and then turn it on. You'll be asked for a Key, which you'll be given when you buy a copy of windows.

Here's a build without a monitor, you have $330 left in the budget, so you should have plenty of room for a good monitor

Toss the 212 EVO and the 550w psu. The 650 from the same series costs less right now, and the Cryorig H7 beats the pants off the 212 and looks better to boot. Otherwise I agree with all of this

Depends if OP wants to wait for a MIR, but that's up to them.

1440Hz i think 144 fps or something like that my friend said

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

I don't think a 1070 will run that. Usually agreed on cards are 1080p 144hz/1440p 60hz with a 1070, 1440p 144hz needs a 1080

  • 40 months ago

1440p will run on the 1070 it just wont be at 90 fps constantly itll be about 60-50 on all high settings; a 1080 is suppose to be for 4k

I meant the 144hz. No point in spending the money on a monitor that will support 144fps if the card can only pull 50-60 was what I was getting at

  • 40 months ago
  • 1 point

OK i understand now but it can still pull more than that if the settings were turned down because that is with everything turned up completely' and on very hard to run games' not on more normal games. and the fps isn't determined by the refresh rate which is what the 144 hz.

ok thanks man so your saying I should go for a i5? and water cooling

  • 40 months ago
  • 0 points

an i5 will be just fine, you just wont get as high as an overclock if you went with it which doesn't matter as much

  • 40 months ago

Do you mean going with a water cooler or an i5 will give a lower overclock?

  • 40 months ago

no I'm just saying its the luck of the draw you can only clock your cpu to a certian rate already, but the i5's are essentially low tier i5's that didn't make the specs required for them to become i7's so esentially it will always have a lower clock rate compared to that of an i7

also how much Fps will i get with this

You should be able to hit 144hz in most games at 1080p, and 60hz at 1440p.

  • No Mail-in Rebates, so your initial cost is the final cost.
  • For gaming use, an i5 will do you just as good as only a small handful of games require or will fully utilize an i7.
  • No Optical Drive included (~$20 DVD, ~$50 BR) but one can be added later if really desired. (OS can be installed from a 4GB+ USB stick)
  • No mouse, keyboard, or speakers/headset included (Prices and quality vary by manufacturer.)
