Welcome to the Community.  I would do something like this: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=87eda012-81a2-4b31-be17-d28a6f2aa02c If you're going for maximum framerates, I think your best overall option is going to be the i5-10600k for your CPU, and then an RTX 2080 Super for your video card. The 10600k is pretty much the best all-around gaming CPU right now, with performance that can come extremely close to and sometimes match the i7 and i9 parts in gaming, without the hefty price premium. It has a good amount of overclocking headrooom and from what I hear is fairly easy to overclock, and the Noctua NH-U14S (or other similar performance coolers) would be able to handle overclocking pretty well.  The 2080ti is the best GPU on the market, however it commands such a huge price premium that you wouldn't really be able to fit it into your budget without cutting corners elsewhere that I personally wouldn't want to. As such, we go with the 2080 Super instead, which is the second-best and will still handle anything you throw at it.  This build includes Windows as well as part of the cost.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

I would look for some CL16 RAM if you can find it at an affordable rate, you can do better so far as memory latency is concerned, but that depends on availability and pricing. Otherwise, you can consider some similar offering on the GPU from Nvidia like 2060 Super, but this personal preference. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article $1999 fast gaming PC with RTX 2080 TI and 2K monitor — Micro Center $1999 fast gaming PC with RTX 2080 TI and 2K monitor 1TM ✭ June 27 in Your Completed Builds Got carried away with this one. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=36e91d94-a04f-49e5-9bf0-511b02ccc01c 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments ICgamer ✭ July 23 Nice, but shouldn't you used a PSU of at least 850W? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMichaelB admin July 23 ICgamer said: Nice, but shouldn't you used a PSU of at least 850W? 650W will do just fine. The card has two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, which can each safely supply 150W of power, plus an additional 75W from the PCIe slot. This means that the max theoretical power his RTX 2080 Ti can pull is 375W, assuming ASUS followed both ATX and PCI-SIG standards. This gives him 275W of overhead for the rest of his system, and the Ryzen 5 3600 won't be pulling more than 120W under max load (capped at 140W from the socket as well on default power limits). Realistically, that 2080 Ti won't be pulling more than 270W unless he were to perform a shunt mod or VBIOS power limit mod, and even then, he'd need to slap a better cooler on it if he wanted to throw extra voltage at it when overclocking. 1TM said: Got carried away with this one. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=36e91d94-a04f-49e5-9bf0-511b02ccc01c I think there is some imbalance here with your choice in GPU and monitor. That GPU can easily do 1440p 240hz gaming, but the monitor you selected is 1440p 75hz. If this is the limit of your budget, you'd be better off downgrading the 2080 Ti to an RTX 2080 or 2080 Super and spending the remaining budget on a better gaming panel. At that resolution, you'll still be fine sticking with AMD, so your platform decision works out quite well, I'd just advise taking advantage of the GPU power overhead you'll have by enjoying higher refresh rates, or maybe even consider investing in a 4K panel if you prefer sharpness and screen real estate over refresh rate. Aside from that, looks solid. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Community Article Help choosing parts,1500/2000k build — Micro Center Help choosing parts,1500/2000k build DeJion ✭ April 8 edited April 8 in Help Choosing Parts Hello! I'm a game design student and I'm looking to build a powerful pc that can last me for a good time, especially since I have to work and study from home. This is my first time building a pc and I've been doing alot of research but talking to people tends to help provide context. I have between a 1.5-2k budget, and these are the things I'm trying to do with it, and suggestions for parts, builds, or just things I should prioritize in my build would be so much help. I will be regularly using programs like Autodesk Maya Pixelogic Z-Brush Substance Designer/Painter Unreal Engine Unity Engine Maxon Cinema 4D Adobe Suite (and being able to game using a 144 hz monitor) 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TheITDad ✭✭ April 9 So I'm going to assume two things so if they are wrong you may need to adjust the build.  Firstly that you don't need the monitor in this build, and that the needs to design games is pretty much the same as playing them except more ram and processing power is generally needed.  So with those two assumptions I got a build here that comes in just under 2k so adjust as needed for tax and such if needed.  Hope this helps.

Community Article Warranty question on NZXT Kragen Z63 — Micro Center Warranty question on NZXT Kragen Z63 ArcadeLabs ✭ April 23 edited April 23 in Customer Service Questions Hello Micro Center community, I recently bought an NZXT Kragen Z63 over the week end at the Tustin branch for a new complete PC build, unfortunately during the install process I damaged the fins on the radiator unit. I opened a support ticket with NZXT mentioning the situation and explaining it was my fault. They said they'd issue an RMA and that I could either get a replacement through Micro Center, or have it replaced through them. A few days later, my support ticket was deleted, and any attempt to get a status update on the initial support ticket leads nowhere. I have 10 more days to return any parts to Micro Center should they be faulty (it is a 2k build), but I am unable to test the build without a CPU cooler... What are my options? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TS_BryantA admin April 24 @ArcadeLabs Good morning and welcome to the Micro Center Community!

My main issue would be with the RAM, 3600 at CL19. You're better with 3200 at CL16. It'll be less trouble loading the XMP profile and getting it stable without having to make any adjustments. Which you may not need to, but 3600 is pretty aggressive on the Intel side. Lower latency overall. 1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Napoleon164 ✭ August 31 How about the air cool?

First the RAM, try to get to 3600 CL16 for your RAM. Getting the fclk up to 3600 will increase your performance overall. I try to target this with Ryzen builds.  You've got a decent power supply with the EVGA bronze. I'd step up to a Supernova, there is a substantial quality difference in my opinion between those units. Last the cooler, the Enermax is adequate, but that's all it is. I'd go water AIO, 240/280/360MM to give you some overhead for PBO to work. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter RogueWave ✭ September 20 Thanks TSMikeW Please explain in detail the RAM and cooler, I am not that fluent in computer terms The Supernova breaks my budget Can't do 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSMikeW admin September 20 Regarding RAM with the Ryzen CPU's it'll always try to sync you infinity fabric, IMC and memory clocks. Up to 3733Mhz. Higher frequency is faster, so long as you're not sacrificing latency on the RAM.  So 3600 is a good spot to be at, where you can load the XMP profile and go. And there is good 3600 CL16 RAM available with good secondary timings. For the cooler and the PBO ( Precision Boost Override ). If this is enabled, the CPU will overclock itself, and it does a very good job. It operates under the limitation of thermals though. Better cooling, better performance. There are other factors here, of course, but that's a simple way of explaining it. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

I swapped out your motherboard for an option that is a bit more expensive because I felt that since you chose teh 3950X you would want to pair it with an equally powerful/robust motherbaord. I changed your PSU to a fully modular option with an 80 Plus Gold rating. This will mean that there will be less wire mess in the case, as well as a better power efficiency. The GPU you had selected was one with a water block attached and would require a custom water cooling loop. I'd recommend a 3070 but it hasn't yet released. So I've replaced it with a similar option at a close price to the expected MSRP of the 3070. I noticed you only included a single NVMe drive for your storage. I'd suggest adding either an additional NVMe or a HDD for your project files. I did change out your CPU cooler as well, but wasn't sure of what you'd prefer. I listed two different options, either the Noctua - NH-D15, or the ASUS - ROG Ryou 240 240mm RGB AIO.  They are comperable options in performance, but they offer a different asthetic. Pick one and remove the other! I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any questions. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

For gaming, the 3700X doesn't perform all that differently from a 3600, but the 3700X holds a clear advantage if OP plans to stream while gaming and opts to use software encoding. That, and future titles may find themselves taking advantage of the additional processing threads, resulting in better frame consistency in the future. It's still cheaper than the 3800X, 3900X, and 3950X. Another thing to remember is that as you run your games at a higher resolution, your processor actually does less work, and would actually run a fair bit cooler as it handles less draw calls for frames. If he opted to use a 4k panel and only achieved 60fps, it would be twice as easy on the processor to process half the draw calls, if that makes any sense. With that being said, higher refresh rates will absolutely cause the CPU to run hotter, so those that plan to utilize a 240hz panel will absolutely need to make sure their CPU is not only fast enough to handle the excessive amounts of draw calls, but also cool enough to maintain that clock speed requirement. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter BubbleMax MN ✭ July 23 TSMichaelB said: Wjohnson048 said: My goal with this build is for moderate gaming with demanding AAA titles.  My monitor is 144Hz 1ms 1080p CPU- AMD Ryzen 7 3700x 3.6Hz 8-Core (Curious if the provided cooler will be efficient or if I should opt for a AOI liquid cooler) Board- ASUS B450-F ROG STRIX ATX RAM- G.Skill 16gb(8x2) DDR4 3600 PSU- Corsair RM750 80+ Gold Fully modular GPU- EVGA RTX 2070 Super Storage- 1TB M.2 SSD with 2TB 7200RPM SATA III TIA for any help!

Was all I suppose if the idea is to get another full like 15 years I suppose paying up might be worth it.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

Anybody who looks at the sum of these parts knows that a lot of work when into this build specifically the individual parts chosen for the build.

Community Article Need Help Choosing Parts — Micro Center Need Help Choosing Parts Flyers1037 ✭ September 24 in Help Choosing Parts I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. Budget is around  $2k, using this mostly for video, simulation gaming (modded CitySkylines), RTS gaming, 3D designing.  I talked a little with an AMD rep at a trade show a bit back, and it was suggested I do liquid cooling, but haven't done a build with that before. Any advice would be welcome. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=2491b657-5cd0-412d-9250-5692adf6ddde 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments LandShark admin September 24 I'd recommend changing your SSD to an M.2 drive. I'd also recommend a more powerful GPU. The upcoming RTX 3070 release will far outperform the GTX 1070 that you've selected. It's reported to be at $499 price at release on Thursday, October 15th. Its release will most likely change the price of current GPUs available. So you might find a better deal if you wait a short while. Otherwise, I think you've got a good build set there. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Flyers1037 ✭ September 24 Thank you for your feedback, LandShark.  I haven't built in a long time, so the M.2 drives are new to me, switched that over.  I have a 1TB hybrid drive from my existing computer I plan on utilizing in this build as well.  For the GPU, would something like the RTX2060 be better?  I'm not sure how the performance difference between 6GB vs 8GB of memory on the card would be. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter LandShark admin September 24 edited September 24 That's understandable. The NVMe/M.2 drives can offer a nice performance increase and you don't have to worry about cables. The 2060 would be a better performing card than the 1070, however, I would recommend waiting for the 3000 cards, as they may decrease the price on the 2000 series cards. You'll see more performance increase from more CUDA cores than you might from 2GB of GPU RAM. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Need Help Choosing Parts — Micro Center Need Help Choosing Parts richardvieyra3 ✭ September 19 in Help Choosing Parts I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. Would the main components work well together for gaming mostly shooter games along with doing graphics design? Trying to stay under 2k for price on PC but leave room for upgrading down the road. Thanks.  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-asus.aspx?load=f2a6aa96-6a72-4373-a4ad-3c04221677b0 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments TSTonyV admin September 19 You may be better served by going with an Intel platform if your main focus is gaming and depending on what graphics design programs you're using. Do you know what software you'll be using?  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter richardvieyra3 ✭ September 19 Mostly Adobe Illustrator for graphics design, occasionally Photoshop.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin September 19 Alright. I like to default to Puget Systems recommendations when it comes to PCs being built for design/CAD/rendering and that sort of thing, and they have a breakdown of a number of CPUs, both Intel and AMD, here: https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Adobe-Photoshop-139/Hardware-Recommendations The 10700k and 3900X are both very close to together in terms of performance for Photoshop, and Illustrator should be similar as far as I'm aware. In your case, I think you need to ask yourself if you care about the extra gaming performance a 10700k could get you instead. If those extra few percentage points of frames are important to you, then the 10700k will be a good choice. If they're not all that important (or if you're playing at higher resolution like 1440p or 4k where performance between the CPUs will be almost identical) then I'd stick with the 3900X as it's a fantastic all-around option for what you're doing.  Beyond that I do have some general feed back. I noticed in your build is that you included two CPU coolers, the Hyper 212 as well as the ASUS Ryou cooler. You only need one and the Hyper 212 isn't a significant upgrade over the Wraith Prism the 3900X comes with. I'd stick with the liquid cooler in that case. Personally speaking I'd go with a cheaper case and AIO liquid cooler, something like a Lancool II Mesh and an NZXT Kraken X63 pairing. That would save you some cash that you could put into a different place on your build like bumping up your GPU to the next price bracket which would be well worth it in my opinion.  0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment.

I am mostly looking for a system that can run Cyberpunk on High-Ultra with RTX on at 60 FPS, I don't have a 2k monitor, I still play on 1080p.  https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=9b4c1b64-18b5-455d-bc6e-9bdf72a9ed7d 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments Gonzo ✭ September 21 edited September 21 I am also planning to upgrade my processor next year i am just at the budget limit on my processor, i could also downgrade to a 3070 and invest more on my processor, if you think i could achieve those 60 FPS with RTX on ultra. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSPhillipT admin September 21 Hello Gonzo,  The build looks good however if you are looking to play Cyberpunk at 60FPS and at 1080p, the 3080 is most likely overkill.  Although we do not have definitive testing with Cyberpunk, the 60FPS 1080p is pretty low mark to hit, and I think a 3070 or 2080 will work even with RTX On.  Build looks fine, if you are on a budget however, switch your RAM from RGB to non-RGB.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Gonzo ✭ September 21 Yah i thought 3080 was a bit overkill! I probably will go for 3070 or 2080s when the prices go down and invest a bit more on my processor. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin September 21 I definitely agree with Phil on this one. At 1080p the high end cards are way more then enough, I'd only buy something like a 3080 if you're gaming at 1440p or 4k. The Ryzen 5 3600 is definitely a great processor with some strong value but at 1080p with this kind of budget I think the i5-10600k would be the choice. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Gonzo ✭ September 21 @TSTonyV Hi! I went for the R5 3600 and a 2080 S as I got a good offer when the 3080 got released here. Do you think this could handle Cyberpunk 2077 with RTX on High-Ultra on 1080p? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter LandShark admin September 22 Hi, @Gonzo I think you'll see great performance with these parts. I'd expect it to run well at 1080p. However, since the game hasn't been released I can't speak to its exact performance. Just guessing. 😊 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Sign In or Register to comment. Community Article Need Help Choosing Parts — Micro Center Need Help Choosing Parts mwilson ✭ October 3 in Help Choosing Parts The last time I built a computer was in high school, and dual core processors and ddr2 RAM had just come out, having 1GB of RAM was impressive, and 100GB was a big hard drive. To say I'm out of touch is an understatement. I want to build a beast of a computer and spend 2k or less. I put this list together just scrolling through the different custom pc builder options and ended up over my budget a bit. Would love some insight from you lot, who are much more up to speed with the newest tech. Thank you! I put this parts list together and am looking for some advice. https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=74b651c8-40ea-4aef-8417-e8f39ded9c79 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Comments mwilson ✭ October 3 I know it said to list games you want to play and things you want to do. I literally want to have the option to do anything I want and not worry if the PC can handle it. That might be too general, and maybe is dumb, but thats what I wan't. I want to be able to play any game without having to worry about being able to run it, watch and stream various media crisply and smoothly, do video editing, and have multiple things running at the same time. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSPhillipT admin October 3 Hello @mwilson So first off, what resolution are you planning to play games at?  Is your monitor 1080p or 1440p or even 4k?   There are definitely things you can do to lower your budget, like picking less blingy Corsair RAM.  Your NZXT Case is also the H710, which is made for eATX Motherboards.  Your motherboard will fit fine into it, just the case is extra big for bigger motherboards.  You will want to change that case to the NZXT H510.  You also do not need an Internal Blu Ray Reader as modern cases do not have spots for such drives to be easy access.  Lastly the Corsair LL140s, these use a special proprietary plug that plugs into the Corsair RGB Hubs.  The individual fans do not come with this RGB Hub HOWEVER the Bundle packs do.  You will want to look to either getting the LL120 3x Bundle Pack or the Corsair LL140 2x Bundle Pack.   Here are those changes I made; https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder.aspx?load=cd607940-c8e8-4fc3-8410-9e8ba93e576f I ended up removing the 3x Noctua Case Fans as there are not enough Fan Headers on the motherboard to support 5 Fans.  You will want to use a Fan Splitter or a Fan Hub to have extra fan headers.  As is though, I think the 2 140mm Fans is a lot of intake and you can set the default fans that come with your case as exhaust.   0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter mwilson ✭ October 3 edited October 3 @TSPhillipT 1080P or better.

There's some areas where we could potentially save cost without losing performance, like the motherboard, or potentially add performance depending on what you're doing. Is $2000 the budget you're working with? 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Brendan ✭ August 13 Hey!  Yeah $2k is pretty much top of my budget.  Using it for mostly gaming and some light video editing.  Thanks for responding.  Main priority is best performance for gaming as I work in the industry but have always been console guy. 0 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter TSTonyV admin August 13 Alright. If you're targeting best gaming performance primarily, then I think you could certainly get away with going with a cheaper motherboard and CPU and upgrading the GPU.  Intel still holds the edge in gaming performance so the 10600k would be a great choice and is probably the best all around gaming CPU with performance very close to the i7 and i9 chips in games at a much lower price. Alternatively you could go with the Ryzen 7 3700X which can be had for the same price as the 10600k. It's not as strong in gaming, but the extra 2 cores should help for production depending on exactly what you're doing. For example: https://www.microcenter.com/site/content/custom-pc-builder-amd.aspx?load=b4c9b754-65b2-4471-96c4-625b55029e0e I was able to fit in a 2080 Super on this build with the 3700X and a less expensive board. If you want to go with better gaming performance, you can swap the 3700X with a 10600k + comparable motherboard, then just add in a good aftermarket CPU cooler like a Noctua NH-U14S.  1 · Share on FacebookShare on Twitter Brendan ✭ August 13 This is awesome thanks.  I have heard that GPU was solid.  Thoughts on this?
