Cupe

Cupe needs a new PC build

Recommended Posts

Hi nerds

I’m gonna do a new machine build with @Mitch and need some sugggestions on parts.

From here tho: https://www.scorptec.com.au/

I need a massive tower with space for internal drives, and some basics (gonna get other parts from existing computer).

Need:

CPU

Motherboard

RAM

Doesn’t need to be insane but moderately industry standard would be good. Nothing over $1K.

thx

I don't want to rip too much out of the old machine. So it's almost a new build.

Just the usual. The card I have will run the games I wanna play. I don't do any huge edits. Even an i7 is fine with a mid-high range cpu that isn't a rip off

case: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Cases/ATX/57222-FD-CA-DEF-R5-BK 8 internal hdd bays

cpu: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/CPU/AMD-Socket-AM4/71983-YD2600BBAFBOX intel is a scam atm, for your budget the best you could get is a i5 8400, this gets you double the threads and negligible loss in performance in intel biased shit

motherboard: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Motherboards/AMD-Socket-AM4/72450-X470-GAMING-PLUS - cheapest out of the box motherboard available atm, otherwise you can wait til end of the month when cheaper boards are out and out of the box compatible, or get this https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Motherboards/AMD-Socket-AM4/67486-GA-AB350-Gaming-3 which would require you to get in contact with the scorptec guys to update the bios before they ship it out to you. Saves you $85, the more expensive one is better but not really $85 better for you

ram: https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Memory/DDR4/65348-HX432C16PB3K2-16 ram prices are a fucking scam right now, this is a pretty decent price for 16gb of good ram. Alternatively, you could go for https://www.scorptec.com.au/product/Memory/DDR4/67740-F4-3200C14D-16GFX which is more expensive but higher quality, but probably not worth the extra money for your use case. 

All up this should come to just under 1k, maybe a little over if you get the more expensive motherboard AND more expensive ram.

Fuck that case is boss. How are you meant to fit all those fucking cables for 8 hdds

I could probs salvage the bits from the current PC and just rebuy for it when they're cheaper

Cheers @Scottie

you could salvage your psu, graphics card, fans and case. If you're upgrading to a new cpu, then there's no avoiding having to get a new motherboard and new ram too
