Is the futureproof? Can I save money? Also i want two displays


According to this:
https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/631048-psu-tier-list-updated/
the PSU is not a good one. it is tier 6 on a 7 tier scale, as a PSU, it makes a great doorstop, as long as you don't plug it in, otherwise it might burn the door down!
Return it and get something from tiers 1, 2, or 3 in the 500-600 watt range.

 


Wouldn't even make a good door stop because it's too light. LOL
 
Linus tends to be dickish on rankings and doesn't explain unless your willing to scroll through 197 posts, I prefer http://www.jonnyguru.com because they go in depth and explain things each with a seperate review.

Old design regardless how good it is.... T4 automatic
Sleeve bearing Fan.... T3 automatic
Quality and Efficiency ratings in their formula for rankings
User usage.. what can work for a casual gamer playing 2 hours a day vs a Hardcore playing 12 hours a day is completely different and should be considered.. guess what that is also explained on Jonny

Much better build. If you have to save money we can work on it but buying a 7700 is a waste. At LEAST get a 6 core 8400.

My advice would be to sell the motherboard if you can and try the PSU with my build.

You are wanting a,"future proof" setup, but the 7700 was released 20 months ago. It is still a good processor but even an 8400 beats it in most games. Its not a bad system but not worth the money IMO.

Well, I would still trash the PSU, not use it period.

Get something better quality than that if you want your system to last.

I bought the motherboard a while back and i didn't know that it didn't support any k series or 8th gen processors . However it was the cheapest at the time for 40 bucks. I'm a teenager and my parents are getting a bit mad now that i wasted their money. Now i have to sell it.

I'll try to sell the mobo and psu for decent price, maybe try out the suggest systems.

 
$40 isn't even that good of a deal for a b250 board.
What comes to PSUs, think: why would anyone sell, let alone gift you a fully working PSU that they could use themselves?
The only times someone will sell you fully working psu is when it comes as a part of a working system.
 
Future Proof equals buying the latest tech available do I need to mention that the 9000 series is suppose to start launching next month? Each upgrade is about 8-10% faster than the previous generation, it would be wise to wait a little longer since you going to be paying about the same amount of money regardless.
 
9000 series... 11-series...
10 series is already 2 years old and is in the end of it's production.

Also, if you're not gonna use the second monitor for gaming, then there's no point for it to be 144Hz.
And trust me, 1080p won't look very good on a 27 inch monitor.
rather scale down the display size or scale up resolution to 1440p.

11 series gpu's will definitely be expensive at the start of their release and i don't want to wait for them to come down. 10 series gpu prices will probably come down with the 11 series release. Meanwhile, any decnetly priced 1440p monitors around 24-5 inches?

 


Depends on what you consider decently priced... Though this one is really nice for it's cost:

Kind of a boring business aesthetic. But it seems like a pretty good deal.
