What is it about the PSU that leads you to claim it's of insufficient quality?

In general, please refrain from calling PSUs bombs/fire risks etc unless they've truly proven to be.

The i9-9900KF doesn't appear to be any cheaper in most places at the moment. However, if it's any cheaper and the price difference is worth losing the integrated graphics as a backup to you, then go for it!

Thanks for the feedback, great build!

FYI the memory you selected is DDR4-3200, compared to this guide's DDR4-3600 memory. That's still a totally viable speed. I just wanted to mention it because you said it's the same performance, in case that's a concern for you.

An i7-9700K would cost considerably more money as well. The CPU for this build is well balanced with the GPU.

It isn't dual GPU. That's just the name of the Asus GPU line that's currently selected.

Hi, thanks for the feedback.

  • B450 MAX boards, which are the only B450 ones currently guaranteed to work out of the box, are currently the same price as X570 boards. They are potentially running up against stock/pricing issues. They are currently being used in a couple lower budget guides though in the hopes of saving some money, but we are monitoring those in case they get out of hand anyway. Users can choose select non-MAX B450 boards anyway, but that's also already covered in the write-up and can be considered part of the guide.

  • At the time of publishing, the price difference between DDR4-3600 and DDR4-3200 memory was minimal. That has now changed, and I may update the guide to the lower speed.

  • Personal storage needs varies highly. Because of this, the storage selection is only intended as a jumping off point. Some folks will never come close to filling out 1TB, and others will need much more. It heavily depends on what type and how many different games ones plays. Should you want a different drive specifically, you can always dive in to make specific picks.

  • Always better to fit faster video cards, but obviously that's budget-dependent. I don't think we disagree on that :)

  • Right this moment, the case is back in stock. If it continues to see stock issues, it may be rotated out.

  • You're always going to be able to find user reviews of any given PSU having been DOA. That's not really a good indicator of quality. All of the PSUs selected will reliably perform their role.

The case was originally less than half the $400 price that it is right now. The price shot up some time after the guide was posted. We're exploring alternative options now.

The power supply wasn't cheaped out on. All power supplies in the list are good quality. However, there are stock and pricing issues right now due to the pandemic, so the list was expanded recently.

Finally, please keep feedback polite. There's no need to be insulting.

What would you like to see changed, and why would you like to see it changed?

Comment reply on Build Guide: Great AMD Gaming Build

As covered in the description above,

The X570 chipset was selected rather than the B450 chipset in order to bypass any BIOS update issues that would occur when combining a new Ryzen 3000 series (Zen 2) CPU with a B450 chipset.

Another option is the B450 MAX boards from MSI, but those are potentially running up against stock/pricing issues. They are currently being used in a couple lower budget guides though in the hopes of saving some money, but we are monitoring those in case they get out of hand anyway.

You're welcome to dive in and make more specific recommendations for SSDs. As it stands, the parametric filter is selecting for the best-priced SSD to save the builder more money.

Comment reply on Build Guide: Entry Level Intel Gaming Build

The parametric filter is currently selecting DDR4-3000 RAM because that's the kit with the best price. It wouldn't make sense to pay more for slower RAM, even if in the end they run at the same speed.
