Input on Parts For Building PC

Question

My friend built his own gaming computer a year ago, and this Christmas I thought I would finally do the same. I've never built a computer before, and I'm gonna be 100% honest I don't know a ton about the hardware of computers. My friend offered to help me with assembly once I get all the parts. If someone could check out what I got going and make sure they think its a good choice. Thanks!

 

What I want to do with it:

  • Bot
  • Photo/Video Edit
  • Program(Java, C++, etc.) Computer Science is my major.
  • Play an array of game types (not competitive, but good enough quality that its fun)
  • Movies

If your budget is that high you should get much better parts.

For that budget I'd get a nice 4K IPS display. I'm also in computer science and my i5 is more than fine, but I'll throw some parts at you..

 

i7 6700k

Noctua NH-D15 for cooling if you're overclocking. If not you can get a cheaper cooler. If you want water cooling go for it, but I prefer silence over the loud pumps on some units

16gb of 2667mhz DDR4

512gb ssd + 2tb hdd

550w PSU (get a quality one from Seasonic! dont get a cheap one!!!)
GTX 1070

I really like the Fractal Design cases, but it's your choice

shlda gotten a 6700k when it on sale for 275 on ebay by newegg :P

 

 

 

 

why do you need a 500gb ssd? you can get a 120gb or 240gb ssd for A LOT CHEAPER and use it for the OS only... no need to buy a 500gb ssd lol. can also get a cheaper PSU, u dont need a 650 watt PSU when the pc is 332W you can get a evga 430 or 500 psu for half the price and use the savings on peripherals, mouse/keyboard etc.....

go to r/buildapc , r/buildapcsales , anandtech.com/benchmarks

 

Your build is honestly terrible. You need a much faster processor. Like above users id recommend the i7-6700k. Any z170 motherboard would be useful to have. You dont have a cooler on your build but you'll need one for sure, just make sure it fits your case. Dont need to spend so much on RAM but its whatever. Dish out a nice sum of money on a decent graphics card. The GTX 1070 is nice but a 980ti will do aswell. 

 

Seriously, go to my reddit sub's and read the wiki. It has everything you need to know. Use anandtech to compare the performance between two parts you're looking at.

his CPU is fine... he dont need one much faster luls.....  i jst said 6700k cuz it was on sale for 299.99 at times and on ebay from newegg it was 275 at one point but its been completely sold out on ebay and newegg lmao

 

if anything he could get 2 semi-old xeon CPUs for 50-70 bucks each and build a dual cpu build with 32gb-64gb of ram lol..... :D cost would be around 1k or so  lel

@Gh0sty 500w is enough your right, but i'd never suggest skimping on PSU, I'd recommend getting a Gold+ PSU, saves you money over time in electricity and is less likely to fail or harm your other components. Fully Modular is also very nice for cable management and aesthetics.

most cases have the cords hidden from the side with no glass panel fam....   lol 500w is not skimping when the PC build says its going to use 300 or so watts and what a few extra bucks in electrical per month is not a big deal..... chances of your components being harmed cuz of a bad PSU lol not very high nor likely.... thers shit pre built PCs out there with crap PSUs and some people have those for years and years and components are harmed....

@Gh0sty You generally always want 30% higher than the rated wattage of your build. In skimping I was speaking regarding the efficiency rating. Gold or Platinum rated WILL save you plenty of money over time. You can lose a lot of energy when the PSU is converting, over time it adds up to a good amount of $. So in the long run you'll save money and also make sure your components are further protected. I've built plenty of HTPCS (use to have a business for this) and other PCs. Just sharing my experience.

You can see in real time the difference between bronze and gold here, a 20 wattage difference:

horrible vid fam i diddnt like it :(

 

heres a better link explaining stuff, but uh saving 16 dollars on average per year and thats with a PLATINUM PSU.......  the savings arent there frankly and a 500 psu is more than enough. Honestly this would only matter if you're running servers or something like that etc.

@Gh0sty 500 Watts is enough, I've already agreed on that. When you are building any PC you want a PSU 30% higher than your calculated draw power. That's not my opinion, but consensus. The return is definitely not marginal if you run your PC to bot 24/7. It's a return of $36+ dollars per year, even at 12 hours it's $18 a year and in general a better quality PSU than those lower rated.

    • Gradle is a build tool used to accelerate developer productivity.

      We recently setup a Maven repository (TRiBot Central) to make it easier for scripters to create scripts. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-central/-/packages

      Furthermore, we've released a simple Gradle project to make it easy to run TRiBot and develop scripts for it. Check it out here: https://gitlab.com/trilez-software/tribot/tribot-gradle-launcher

      The goals of TRiBot Central are to:

      Deliver updates to TRiBot faster


      Better organize TRiBot's dependencies (AKA dependancies)


      Make it easier to develop scripts for TRiBot


      Make it easier to use and run TRiBot


      Note: TRiBot won't be able to run scripts from within this project until TRiBot's next release.

    • Hi everyone,

      I'd like to thank everyone for their patience in this transition period. Since last week, we've worked out the remaining bugs with this integration.

      Some users have still been having issues with connecting their forums account to their Auth0 account. To resolve this, we've imported all forums accounts into Auth0.

      Unfortunately, the accounts which were imported today were using an unsupported password hashing algorithm. Hence, random passwords were set during the import.

      What does this mean for me?

      If you've previously linked your forums account to your Auth0 account, you don't have to do anything. Nothing changes for you.


      If you haven't logged in via our new login yet,

      Try logging in with your forums email address and the last password you used


      If you are unable to login, please use the "Forgot password" tool on the login page:
      Follow the instructions to reset your password

    • Hello everyone,

      Last week we tried to roll out Auth0 Login, but we lost that battle. Now it's time to win the war!

      Important changes

      When logging into the client, you'll now have to enter your Auth0 account credentials instead of your forums credentials

      Note: 2FA is still handled through your forums account (for the time being)



      Changes for existing users

      You'll have to link your Auth0 account to your forums account here: https://tribot.org/forums/settings/login/?service=11


      Auth0 accounts have been created for most existing users. Please use your forums email address and password to login.



      Important notes

      Make sure to verify your email address upon creating a new Auth0 account


      When we mention your Auth0 account, we mean your account used for auth.tribot.org as displayed below

    • To better support the upcoming changes (TRiBot X, new repository), we're switching our login handler to Auth0. Instead of logging in with the standard form, you'll now be required to login through our Auth0 application.

      All existing accounts which have been used within approximately the past year have been imported into Auth0 using the same email and password combination which has been stored on the forums.

      What does this mean for users?

      Your account credentials are now even more securely stored


      You'll be able to login via Facebook, Google, and others in the future


      Is there anything users have to do differently now?

      Existing users: You'll have to login with the standard login, open your Account Settings, then link your Auth0 account


      New users: You'll be redirected to our Auth0 app (auth.tribot.org) where you'll be able to create an account


      Why was this change made?

      The new apps we are creating (such as the new repository) aren't able to use the forums to handle user logins


      To centralize all user accounts in one area


      To ensure that the client login doesn't go down when the forums are having problems


      To speed up our development


      Other considerations

      There's no documentation or official support for using Invision Community combined with Auth0, so there are still a few kinks we're working out


      We're in the works of creating an account management panel specifically for Auth0 accounts (ETA August)


      It's not possible to change email addresses for the time being (this will be resolved this August)


      Changing passwords is a weird process for the time being. To change your password, you'll have to use the "Don't remember your password" tool on the Auth0 login page

    • Over the past month, we've been working hard on TRiBot's new repository - a much needed update. This change has been deemed necessary for TRiBot X, and will allow us to really speed up development of all aspects of TRiBot.

      Today we are going to share what we've been working on!


      Now you must be wondering what kind of features the new repository will have.... well, you'll have to be patient for a little while longer. We're still figuring out various technical aspects so we can't provide answers to all possible questions. We're also focusing on development rather than writing about it so that everyone can get access to our latest developments at lightning speed. I will however answer a few users' questions.

      We're planning on a release of this early to mid August, giving users some goodies before TRiBot X's release.

      Thank you all for being patient. I hope everyone is excited as much as I am!
