Good day gents,

I am looking for a 2500 euro gaming pc build, this is what I came up with so far, and was thinking maybe you guys know how I can improve it for this price. Keep in mind I do NOT need an SSD, or monitor because I will be using my old ones from my other pc.

I will be buying all the PC parts from Europe, specifically Holland.
Here is my list of what I am thinking of getting:

Zotac Gaming GeForce RTX 3080 Trinity OC LHR - Videokaart € 1.399,00

AMD Ryzen 5 5600X - Processor - € 284,95
MSI MAG B550 TOMAHAWK - Moederbord - € 145,00
G.Skill Trident Z F4-3600C16D-16GTZSW - Geheugen- € 136,78
Seasonic Focus GX-750 - Voeding - € 105,00
Be quiet! Dark Rock Pro 4 - Koeler voor processor - € 69,00
Be Quiet! Silent Base 802 Black Window - Midtower - € 186,34

Endgame Gear XM1 - Muis - € 59,95
Cherry G80-3000 S TKL - € 54,90


= Around 2441 euros (so there is still wiggle room)

Size up to an 850w power supply. Those RTX 3080's can be power hogs.

interesting build, thanks.

The only reason why I didn't go with intel is that they always want a new socket when a new CPU comes out.

Ryzen is am4 since ryzen 1-5

Still v cool build, I'm actually considering getting it tbh. Thanks.
Well, first of all, Intel changes sockets every 2 generations, sometimes even more. Only exception was LGA1150 which only supported 4th gen

Second, both LGA1200 and AM4 are end of life platforms. In 2022, a new socket will come out

And lastly, saying that AMD used the same socket for 4 generations (Zen, Zen+, Zen 2 and Zen 3) is the same as saying Intel did so too with LGA1151 (Skylake, Kaby Lake, Coffee Lake, Coffee Lake Refresh). The socket is the same, but the CPUs aren't actually supported. A320, B350 and X370 only have barebones Zen 2 support and can't work with Zen 3 at all. And vice versa, A520, B550 and X570 don't support Zen or Zen+. Only exceptions are B450 and X470, even so, Zen 3 support on them is barebones and you lose Zen/Zen+ support by updating to a version with Zen 3 support
 
Well is your choice of course but I have to agree with Why_Me. If I were on OP shoes I would get a bigger PSU. At least 850 watts, can be the same brand and model, or any other decent brand/model.

From what we've seen so far on this forum it seems nvidia was too conservative this time around with the psu recommendations.
 
This should be better...

5800x? Seriously? 10700KF is over 100 euro cheaper. The performance is within marginal, even so, it's very overkill for the card. 3070ti is a <Mod Edit> card, technically just a heavily OCd 3070. 275R is a decent case, but the looks are very... specific. Not everyone likes it. Peripherals are a personal thing, but wireless mice are much more comfortable than wired ones. Also, Red switches are linear, another thing to consider

For starters, 10gen. Intel is way behind than 4th gen. Ryzen. If you wanna compare try Rocket Lake. 10700kf is cheaper because it cannot perform as good, period. Take a tour of the Internet and figure out yourself.
Difference between 3070ti and 6900xt is around 15% to 20%...

Are you really trying to justify around 500 bucks for that trivial gain???
I am not even going to go into the rest of your points as it shows your lack of awareness.

How long you been doing this again???

Ah yes, "way behind". Get your facts together. It lags behind by less than 10%, which can be considered "within marginal", and in some Intel-optimised games it even pushes ahead

UserBenchmarks? Are you serious right now? It's the WORST site to compare components

By the way, according to UBM: https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-10700K-vs-AMD-Ryzen-7-5800X/4070vs4085

Well since you know your sites well let me give you the answer from your own book.

CPU PASSMARK SCORE
5800X | 28495
10700KF | 19252

GPU PASSMARK SCORE

Since you are clearly an Intel fanboy I dont have time for this.

Actually, this is mostly ok as is. Like, dang mate, this is pretty well balanced.
(y)
Usually the lists are pretty lopsided - too much focus on RGB, too many fans, or they cheaped out on the psu...

Well, not really. 750W is already enough for a 3080. It is a power hog, but it won't consume more than ~420W at peak, so a good 750W is more than enough
The reason for suggesting a higher wattage for the unit the OP already selected is related to the RTX 30 series' crappy power efficiency; sudden, yet random transient power spikes higher than the board's power limit pop up.
So the already high 400-ish watt 3080s can do 500w+ at times.
Should still be within what the OP's selected unit can handle... so I guess it's a comfort zone thing?
