Hey guys im venturing in my First DIY Gaming Pc and i'm looking for some feedback on my pc parts!

I live on brazil and right now prices are exetremely high (as on every part of the world lol), especially on the Nvidia 3000 series, so my plan is to use the Integrated Graphics from the Intel Cpu while i wait for the prices to get more afordable.

Ive choosed parts that are more focused on "price to performance" while making sure not to let performance on the table.

The only part that ive bought is the Case.

My budget is 10.000 BRL(1.800 Us Dollars).

This Rig will be paired with a 1080p 144hz display (Didn't decided on it yet).

Heres the List:

Thanks in advance.
 
Why exaclty?
We are already seeing very high usage in modern games when only 6 threads are available. I also look at my own system, I’m running a 3700x and for example COD Black Ops will use 12 threads at about 70-80% usage when giving 150 FPS. The older 4 thread i5’s aged badly once games started using more than 4 threads and I personally believe 6 threads is showing the signs it will also not age well. 4 thread i5’s went from being ideal for gaming to barely ok for entry level in a few years yet the 8 thread i7’s still perform very well.

It all looks ok to me and assume choices are driven by local pricing. For the 9600k I would normally think a 360mm AIO is more than you need but that may be a good choice if ambient temperatures are high.
Thats great to hear!

Another question about the Gigabyte Mobo.

The only M.2 slot that this mobo has is right up on the x16 PCIE port, and pcparts list says that instaling an SSD there will disable one of the PCIE slot, so that means that i will not be able to put a Graphics Card on the x16 port?
 
It’s never going to stop the pcie x16 3.0 slot. Also I only see this “The motherboard M.2 slot #1 shares bandwidth with a SATA 6.0 Gb/s port. When the M.2 slot is populated, one SATA 6.0 Gb/s port is disabled” and this is normal.

Thats great to hear aswell, that was the only thing that was bothering me, thanks!

With your focus on 'price to performance', or value, I find that your build is lopsided in places, and not in a good way.
-The 9600K in 2021, for reasons already pointed out by sizzling. It's game dependent - worst case scenario, you'll experience stuttering that'll force you to upgrade to fix it.

-H150i Pro XT. There's not a thing cost effective about this. It's the 2nd largest red flag in the build, IMO. Get a tower air cooler, and use the difference on a better cpu or power supply - or both.

=You need a 4TB HDD for a game library?

=Good luck on the gpu endeavor. You may/may not need it. 🤞

-Psu: this the biggest flag. It is a potential dumpster fire: https://www.techpowerup.com/review/gigabyte-gp-p750gm-750-w/12.html
Gamers' Nexus is also looking into psu failures from that model, and the P850GM: https://www.youtube.com/user/GamersNexus/community

Hey great to talk to you again,

ive already made some changes to the parts with the feedback that i recevied.

Im considering a 10400 paired with a b460 TUF since they are booth cheaper and im not very interested on cpu overclock.

4tb was overkill in fact ive reduced to a seagate 2tb

gpu market is <Mod Edit> abusive, like i said im sticking to Integrated graphics till prices get low or close enough to msrp.

about the PSU there is any recomendation that you can give me?
is 650w enough? any brand recomendation? 80bronze or 80 gold?

about the cpu cooling can you recomend a better price performance wattercolling solution?
or its better to go full on air cooling?

I don't know what the market is like in Brazil.
Nvidia recommends 650w, and that recommendation is based on a 10900K in the system.
Adata's XPG Core Reactor.
Corsair's RMX - not the RM(non-x), those are known not to work too well with Ampere gpus.
Antec Neo Eco Gold Zen.
Thermaltake Toughpower

Hybrid coolers really aren't about value, but... if there is a 'value' range, it's the 280mm models.
It's better to go air cooling when you need to make a compromise somewhere.

i see, i will look into a xpg core reactor 650w then.

About AIO watercooler, all of them are overpriced (360mm are the same price as 280mm, lol.) so i will look onto aircolling solutions, can you recomend any great aircoller?

Thanks again for your time
