I need a $3500-$4500 Beast gaming PC!

Hi guys! I'm looking to build my first PC and need someone to make a really good part list for me! I'm mainly going to use this for gaming and streaming. I won't need any peripherals as a monitor or a keyboard and mouse, only a PC! I've made up two parts I wish to be included, but if you have something better feel free to change it up!

ASUS GeForce RTX 2080 Ti: As I've heard this is one of the best graphics cards you can buy for gaming.

Intel i9-9900K: Never owned a PC with a Ryzen processor before and im happy with everything I've owned from Intel.

That's all! Only thing I wish for is that most of the parts are compatible for one RGB controller like Aura or iCUE. This isn't necessary, but would be great! Thanks a lot in advance!

Both of these builds are overkill for 1080p, perfect for 1440p maybe a little struggle on very intensive 4k games.

Thanks a lot for these! They both look great and are under my budget! I'm just curious to why you pick AMD over Intel and what would be needed for a great 4k build! Thanks again for taking your time, I really appreciate it!

AMD offers better value, for example an rtx 2070 or 5700xt, the 5700 xt performs 13% better than the 2070, the 2070 averages £451, while the 5700xt averages £380. AMD offers the 3600 (aka: budget king) which averages around £170, whereas it's closest competitor is the i5-9600k which averages £205, but this time the 9600k has 8% game fps increase according to userbenchmark, but that's just the fps factor, multi-core amd wins, single core intel wins but you also have to take into fact that the 3600 costs £30 less, comes with extra 6 threads and has a decent stock cooler. This is why I prefer AMD. 4k, you'll need a card with at least 8gb of vram and 1600mhz clock speed, 16gb of ram and 8 cores.

Wow, might have to turn to AMD now. Does AMD still offer better value at higher level price-points such as Threadripper? Thanks a lot again for the help!

  • 27 days ago
  • 1 point

Threadripper is easily beaten by the ryzen 5,7 and 9 at gaming but when it comes to workshop threadripper is probably the best due to it's high core count. Intel's xeon is really overpriced. For workshop though, you're better off with a 3900x or 3950x.

Pcpartpicker does not have them, but at the high price point, AMD also sells EPYC processors that blow Xeon processors out of the water. And they are still cheaper, even at that price point.

I won't need any peripherals as a monitor

What's the model of the Monitor you plan to use with this build?

Is Windows 10 needed?

What is your Country? (USA, Canada, etc)

Do you plan on overclocking at all?

This is complete overkill, however it fits into your budget. You will be able to play 240FPS /1080p, 144FPS/1440p, and depending on the game, potentially 100FPS /4K depending on the game. PCPartPicker Part List

I chose Ryzen for 3 reasons: 1) More cores/threads, so better for streaming and gaming at the same time. 2) The motherboards that Zen 2 processors use are capable of 5GB per second SSDs, which I have included in the list. 3) Cheaper and better value. Intel still is king for gaming and solely gaming.

The EVGA KINGPIN is the fastest 2080ti card on the market, it is known to rival some Titan RTXs in performance. It is completely overkill for most people, but hey, it fits into your budget.

Also 64GB of RAM, however 16-32GB is fine for most people, you can lower it to save some $.

The CPU cooler is fine for overclocking if that is something you would wish to do. I wouldn’t even bother overclocking the GPU, as it is so fast already.

I picked Corsair items so most of the stuff should work together with iCue. The RAM is not RGB, but by changing settings, you can get some nice Corsair RGB ram.

Edit: I would wait for the Ryzen 9 3950X to be released, that thing is crazy. It might push out of your budget, so you might have to sacrifice other items. (RAM and probably GPU)

Hey! Sorry for late answer! This is exactly what I was looking to get as a part list. The best of the best (almost) for my type of use. I’ve learnt a lot about AMD recently since i’ve usually only used intel, but do you have an idea of how much the 3950X will cost and how many cores that thing will have? Just curious to how much better the 3950X will be over the 3900X and how much worse an ASUS GeForce 2080Ti OC will be compared to the EVGA KINGPIN 2080Ti. What’s worth sacrificing? Thanks for having such an informative post, i’m not the most knowledgeable builder out there so you’re helping me out!

Ok. So. The 3950X is supposed to cost $750, it has 16 cores versus 12 cores in the 3900X, and has 32 threads compared to 24. It is slightly faster, I don’t know exact measurements, but it might not be worth $220 extra for it if all your going to do is stream and game. The EVGA KINGPIN is the fastest 2080ti card on the market, but any other 2080ti is still and extremely good card. They perform amazing, but the kingpin does it slightly faster. I would look at review online. If you are going to only do gaming/streaming, I would stay with this. If you do some video editing, photo editing, or rendering, I would suggest the 3950X.

Oh, and one thing I might do is change the RAM and save like $50

Looks like I might stay withe build you sent me! That's the perfect build for me at this time and I don't think I'll ever need anything more. I will, most likely, change it to 32 gigs of RAM instead of 64. Thanks again!

You are very welcome! It was my pleasure! Also, I would suggest getting DDR4 - 3600 RAM, as AMD Ryzen loves fast RAM. Also, I would post in Part List Opinions Wanted to confirm with other users that this is the best for the money.

Here is some RAM that is iCue compatible.

looks good too

also saves 500$ which i would use for more storage.

Elaborate please. OP gave me a budget, I maxed it. The only potential waste is the RAM.
