PSA: "future proofing" your PC for 10 years is almost impossible

It makes sense to get the best components now - sell it after 3-5 years and get a new one... or sell parts of it... if new DDR / GDDR X ram hits the market you will need that product to stay on top of the line... getting a "server" grade CPU is no benefit for gaming/streaming tbh... you dont need the PCI-E lanes as far as I can tell from your build...

You are a bit more future proof if you want to get a 2560x1080 UWHD or a 2560x1440p WQHD - a 1050Ti will not be fast enough to power higher resolutions than 1920x1080 at certain fps/quality settings

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 2 months ago

If you need more RAM heavily depends on your applications - I'd monitor it during normal work and see if you breach the 16 gigs limit... regarding your PSU concern: https://outervision.com/power-supply-calculator motherboard is fine for the stuff you use - if you want to do a big upgrade you would need a new CPU/RAM/motherboard but that is likely way more expensive... IMO get a 500GB 960 EVO M.2 NVME SSD...

are you reffering to this https://pcpartpicker.com/user/Brandon_DS/saved/Qg7VYJ partlist from your profile? I cba to read the whole thread tbh...

I'd either get the cheaper 1070Ti https://pcpartpicker.com/product/jvwqqs/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-ti-8gb-sc-gaming-acx-30-black-edition-video-card-08g-p4-5671-kr

Got the 1080 myself, but I got it a year ago for 500€ ($610) before the mining raised the prices... and I'd rather have a 1080Ti now since its reasonably better... Playing on 1440p is fine with the 1070Ti - for 4k or 3440x1440 you could make use of the 1080Ti

Few things regarding your CPU (https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/products/processors/core/x-series/i9-7900x.html):

  • Get RAM thats fitting for you CPU - the i9 lineup is pretty picky when it comes to speeds i9-7900X supports up to DDR4-2666MHz - and thats what you should get to avoid any problems.

  • That Cooler will FRY your CPU - to get an adequate cooler get one that has a decently higher TDP than your CPU, which is 140W.

CAD and gaming dont go well together since CAD works way better with an NVIDIA Quadro and gaming better on a NVIDIA GTX series card. You could go the middle route and get a RX580 or a VEGA64 - so that build makes kinda sense for you.

yes, but you might want to get a CPU that can be OC'd in the future since i5/i7-9xxx lineup will also be Z370 :)

Looks good to me, but you want equal force on all sides - so I'd mount 2 fans in the front as intake (middle and bottom slot) and 1 rear / top (back) as exhaust

Forum Topic "Upgrade"

jix_91 1 Build 1 point 3 months ago

If you can afford get a Z370 board so you can OC better. Also - get 2666MHz RAM, since your CPU can make use of it. Higher is not esp. necessary

Forum Topic "1st time building a Gaming PC"

jix_91 1 Build 2 points 3 months ago

If you can afford to go a bit higher in price I'd personally get this, as it allows for more upgrades, when Ryzen2 releases... Also having 6 cores wont give you that much value and I'd rather get a GPU thats a bit more future proof...

To be honest - you would be nuts spending $2500 on a system to run WINDOWS XP for gaming - DO IT!

If its within budget you can even go for an R7-1700/1800 with this build afterwards... if the R5-1600 is not strong enough...
