Fair enough. I'll just decide on the day I suppose.
Thanks for the help
Everything has been ordered. Now to wait till 30th October for the fun to begin
Be sure to let us know how you get on, and take some pics!
Hi, did you received, what did you order in the end exactly and I'm guessing, you're putting together by yourself. I'm looking to buy something around the same budget but waiting for black friday first.
My basket at Overclockers UK:
1 x Sapphire Radeon RX 5700 XT Pulse 8GB GDDR6 PCI-Express Graphics Card= £399.95
1 x AMD Ryzen 7 3700X Eight Core 4.4GHz (Socket AM4) Processor - Retail= £299.99
1 x MSI B450M Mortar MAX (Socket AM4) DDR4 mATX Motherboard= £92.99
1 x Kolink Citadel Micro-ATX Case - Black= £39.95
1 x Corsair RM Series RM650 650W '80 Plus Gold' Modular Power Supply (CP-9020194-UK)= £89.99
Total: £934.57 (includes shipping: £11.70)
Not from OCUK:
Sabrent 1TB Rocket M.2 SSD -- £109.99
Crucial Ballistic Sport LT 3200MHz 2x8GB --£75.59
I ended up going with this in the end.
Performs beautifully so far. I've been playing CoD: Modern Warfare at on max settings and it doesn't even break a sweat.
I'm waiting for Black Friday to pick up a new monitor. Need something to compliment the build
A 27" 1440p Freesync monitor would be a nice match.
Yeah that's what I'm thinking, but I honestly just don't know specific models to be looking at.
Probably going to make a post over in the 'Monitor' section to get some help.
Nice, I was wondering if it's noisy after playing for a few hours, I hate the noise from my laptop.
Rainforest are doing a superb deal on Sabrent SSD's at the moment!
Oh damn. The rocket 2tb deal is awesome
I couldn't resist either!
That must be Black Friday prices starting early, do you think?
I resisted lol. Already got 2x mp510 960gb in my system. Not wanting for space either...but damn...if I were upgrading...would be first in the shopping basket
Could be... 1TB are gone but 512GB and 2TB still available?
Not more noise than expected really. Just the gentle whirring of the fans.
I have recently adjusted the fan curve for the GPU, so it's a little louder than stock now.
Are these worth Patriot Viper 4 16GB (2x 8GB) 3200MHz DDR4 RAM, for the price of 55£
Rather than Crucial Ballistic Sport LT 3200MHz 2x8GB --£75.59?
The sweet spot for Ryzen is 3600 MHz DRAM:
My basket at Overclockers UK:
1 x Corsair Vengeance LPX Black 16GB (2*8GB) 3600 MHz AMD Ryzen Tuned DDR4 Memory Kit= £79.99
Total: £88.69 (includes shipping: £8.70)
I'll buy this for now
Sabrent 512GB Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 2280 Internal SSD High Perfor...
£44.99 Delivery at no additional cost for Prime Members
As for the rest of specs I'll wait for black friday, hoping for a big save.
That Patriot Ram would be fine. You can always mess around with overclocking it if you want. There is handy tools such as Ryzen dram calculator that make it a lot easier.
