Hey There,

I've decided to start building and just need opinions, suggestions or anything that help.

Here is what I have in my list :

Intel Core i5-10600K 4.1 GHz 6-Core Processor

Noctua NH-D15 CHROMAX.BLACK 82.52 CFM CPU Cooler

Gigabyte Z490 AORUS MASTER ATX LGA1200 Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 16 GB (2 x 8 GB) DDR4-3200 ( 2) CL16 Memory

Samsung 970 Evo 1 TB M.2-2280 NVME Solid State Drive (2)

Asus TUF Gaming GT501 ATX Mid Tower Case

I would need help choosing a Power Supply and a Video Card aswell.


Thank You : )

Fairly typical chassis, so most PSUs will work.

PSU and GPU requirements kind of go together. Given the CPU and cooler here, best to budget around 200W in case you feel like overclocking.

GPU can range from 35-350W average, some of the big guys can have spikes up to 500W easily.

But that all depends on what you have to spend, your monitor resolution, and desired frame rate. GPU prices are extremely elevated, you will be looking at $500-1000 for a good 1080p-1440p card. If you want high refresh rates, it will be towards the higher end. Top of the line GPUs are several thousand dollars right now.


I can't recommend spending that much on a motherboard.

Single Samsung 970 Evo Plus 2TB is slightly cheaper.

I clicked your link and was thinking I won the lottery until I saw 'currently unavailable'. =/
It saddened me greatly, first reasonable listing I have seen in days. Still wildly overpriced, but it is something.

I don't think I would have bought it, my GTX1080 is still doing alright for now. Though getting about a 2080Ti worth of performance for that price, wouldn't have had too much regret.

Here's another option. The i7 11700F will beat the 10600K in eleven out of twelve games and do it for cheaper when you factor in MB and cooling. Throw in 16GB of 3200MHz CL16 RAM along with a halfway decent single tower 120/140mm air cooler and you're off to the races.
